 We in Northern WI, have been bombarded with weird weather, even tho it's already November.   A few snow showers, we expect, but for it to ' hang around,' quite frankly, not ready, are you?
 On our way to the cabin, we had to literally get out of the truck and brush our way in.  Brush frozen branches free of snow so we could pass without the branches scratching the truck.
 The snow was wanting to cling, and cling hard to the trees.
Under the snow was ice from the day before when the snow was barely beginning to melt.
 The sun was shining through the iced branches making for a spectacular sight., but, isn't this prose for late January?
 This was 3 days already, and I found myself wanting to say, 
"  come on, Joke's over~"
 Already at the cabin anyway, we decided to stay a spell, start a fire in the potbellied stove and watch the deer awhile.  One of this spring's fawns and her mama came in to nibble on the pumpkins, apples and corn that we left for them.  All of that dry corn and they may want a drink.
 Iced water, dear, deer???
 The sunshine on the treetops took my breath away.  This photo doesn't begin to do it justice.
 Most of this early snow is gone finally, after a week.
I suppose with Thanksgiving coming just around the corner,
I'm sure there is thanks to give by a big bird, 
Mr. Turkey, that is.
His tracks are no longer visible as he probably is 
showing sighs of relief.   Next time, big boy, next time.
I'll catch up to you, next time.
Until then,

Pretty pictures I have only seen on Christmas cards. Stay warm! Bet I would freeze in my clothes there. I think the last time I wore a big coat was several years ago when we were in Buffalo, New York and went on the Canada side to Niagra Falls.

Beautiful scenery! I love snow and the prettiness of ice on branches. But then, where I live snow doesn't hang around that long. Take care, Sheila

Great photo narrative. You catch some good shots, that is for sure. Ah, the fire in the pot belly sounds so good, and to get the extra of watching the wild life.

Life is good, and you are a great reporter!
Love ya!!!

Those photos are just BREATHTAKING! So you got some snow! It was was pretty.

And would you have shot that turkey for dinner if you caught it?

Great photos! It is magical. I can agree that the weather has been odd.

Gorgeous photos. I'd say Bombarded is about right for the early snow. My goodness it's magical looking, but I shudder to think of the cold.
