Fall Foliage

We had a bit of snow over the weekend, super early by Washington standards but fortunately not enough to stick around for long.  The inconvenience was minor: no schedules to be rearranged around school closures or delays, and with no place really we had to be, it was a good time to stay home, nap, watch movies, and enjoy grilled cheese and soup.

The sun is back out again, reminding us of the glory of an East Coast fall.   Recently I had occasion to drive out towards the Blue Ridge where fall colors really rule.  But though I had my camera with me, rainy skies and pressing appointments kept me from taking any pictures.  Still the reds and yellows around my neighborhood are quite lovely, a sight I missed during my Paris years where the leaves seem to go straight from green to brown to gone.

P.S.  Happy Halloween to all you ghosts and ghouls.
