Snow this morning!  A dusting of snow fell on Roundtop, starting just before dawn.  It started shortly before Baby Dog and I started our early morning walk and continued past sunrise.  I was expecting snow flurries, but an actual dusting, even a light one, was an added treat.

Snow at the cabin!
In this area of the U.S. November is a month that can be wintry or warm and is frequently both at some point during the month.  This year, or at least this week, the weather is falling on the wintry side.  It’s unlikely the snow will last beyond noon, and snow in mid-November doesn’t predict anything about the rest of the winter. Still, I was thrilled by the season’s first appearance of snow.

Oddly, Baby Dog, who usually loves the snow, seemed less than thrilled. Perhaps that is because the snow melted on her fur, leaving her slightly damp after our walk.  She was a lot more interested in getting back to the cabin and curling up in a warm spot than she was in the snow.  Maybe it just wasn’t deep enough for her to play in, but in any event this little dusting wasn’t good enough for her.

Further east here, we got flurries/showers for about an hour, with no accumulation on the ground at all.

Scott: It only snowed here for about an hour, too. I heard you had strong wind, though.

Lol you got more snow than me! I just only a mere dusting.

No snow for us in KC yet. I'd like to hold off for as long as possible.

I came home to about that same amount which is still on the ground. But it's supposed to warm up this next week, and then we get hit with a real snowstorm.
