Can you see it? You can just about see the outline of the next mountain to the west. This was the view from my back deck this morning. It isn't a good view of the mountain yet, but I can see the ridgeline in the background, so I know the mountain is still there.
After living in the "green box" created by the forest's dense leaf cover all summer, it's nice to know my view is returning again. I look forward to getting the view back each fall.
I also saw a few flakes of snow this morning. I can't quite call what I saw flurries yet. That would be giving them far more importance than the reality. However, tonight and this weekend, that could change, as the forecast does include the possibility of flurries.
