Fall Fancies - Snow

The snow is coming down heavily here in the Binghamton area of upstate New York, and it is starting to get dark.  It's hard to say how much we've gotten, since it has been just above freezing, but we have at least five inches on the ground..

This snow is the wet and gloppy kind, hard to shovel, but lovely on trees.   It is not a good day for travel on this, the busiest travel day of the year.  In our country, tomorrow is Thanksgiving.  Many people along the East Coast are going to have problems getting to where they need to go.

Today, I will give thanks for the beauty I saw.
At lunchtime, downtown Binghamton (noting that the tree to the left still has brown leaves on it!)
Our courthouse.

Court Street.
By 3pm, the snow was coming down heavily on the West Side of Binghamton.
Yesterday, I published a photo taken around sunset in my neighborhood of Westover - this was almost in the same location today.

I am grateful I don't have to be in this right now.

And I am grateful that you have stopped by to read my blog.  If you are in the U.S. may you have a Happy Thanksgiving.

What is your weather like, today?


  1. Oh Alana, I LOVE these pictures!!! I am a fall weather kinda girl but when the snow looks this pretty I can't help but love it. We had a nice snowfall about a week ago but then had two days in the mid 50's- typical Cleveland! Right now there's no snow on the ground but it's chilly. Hope you have a good holiday!

  2. Alana,
    What beautiful photos! I know that snow can be a pain to the folks who have to go out in it every day, but I just love it. It just transforms the world for a few months in a really stunning way. The weather here Nebraska is cold and blustery today, but dry. I think it's supposed to be up in the 50s on the weekend, so we'll get some good walks in and soak up a bunch of vitamin D. Happy Thanksgiving to you!

  3. Not much snow here in Northern Idaho, but some.
    Coffee is on

  4. The trees look wonderful decked with snow. The enchantment almost removes the sorrow at the passing of the seasons. There's no change in the weather here in southern England. I guess the cold will soon finish off the hydrangea, which is still clinging to its leaves, green flowers blushed with red, and even new blooms.

  5. Gosh, what a gorgeous place Alana!
    -I have to admit to not being a fan of snow. It does look very pretty though!
