The weather has been so surprising for so many. Tragic for some, such as the residents of the southeast United States subjected to wild fires and drought.
Tornadoes in Louisiana and the tragic wildfires in the Gatlinsburg/Pigeon Forge, Tennessee area. It's been many years since I visited that area - a lot of its beauty is now in ashes. Over 14,000 people evacuated with scant moments to spare, as the fires appeared (according to eyewitness accounts) "out of nowhere". It is almost impossible to imagine, but, through blogging, I know at least one person whose family was affected. The coming days will be hard for all these people.
But, here in the Southern Tier of upstate New York, our snow has melted and fall has returned.
Winter will return soon enough, and will return for good. In the meantime, enjoy this last glimpse of fall.
Day 30 of NaBloPoMo.
