Fall Fancies - The First Day of Winter and NaNoWriMo Check In

Yesterday, winter arrived-not on the calendar, but in our weather. We've had snow already, but this was the real deal-a winter storm advisory, some accumulation, the threat of icy weather, and scenic beauty.  One storm down, many to go.

We lucked out compared to a lot of other parts of the country.  Today, it is supposed to get nasty later in the day.

Enjoy these pictures from yesterday.  Doesn't snow look wonderful if you don't have to be out in it?

The vacant BAE plant in Westover, near Johnson City, New York. Even a vacant building (what looks like lights in the building is a reflection) can look nice in snow.  With any luck, the remains of the plant may be torn down by this time next year.  Want to bet?  I don't.

In downtown Binghamton, New York, the snow looked nice on bushes.
Snow looked just as nice on a potted evergreen.

It's beginning to look a lot like - winter. And, the end of NaNoWriMo, the 50,000 word writing project that ends November 30.  My "writing buddies", all but one, have "won" (i.e. reached their 50,000 goal). One is even editing her manuscript!

Meanwhile, still fighting distractions, I am now over 44,000 words and now I am running up on Thanksgiving.

Pressure....but I will persevere.  I will.

I will wish all of my readers, no matter where they live, a wonderful rest of November.  I may do a live post on Thursday, for Thanksgiving.

What's the weather like where you live?

  1. You CAN do it!!! The home stretch!!! The weather here is very cold and wintry. We've had a little snow and enough ice to cause problems already on roads. I keep hearing it's going to be an unusually cold winter - ick!
