Look what greeted us this morning:

Snow in central Minnesota, October 10, 2009.

Snow in central Minnesota, October 10, 2009.

Even by Minnesota standards, this is early for snow. I can only remember one other time in my life where it snowed on my birthday, which is the 11th for the record, so this snowfall beats that one by a day.

I’m scratching my head wondering what happened to autumn. We went directly from summer to rain to snow. The leaves haven’t all fallen yet, so no raking has been done. Hopefully we’ll get a warm-up before winter proper. (Is it okay to use the term Indian summer? If so, that’s what I want. This early snow feels unfair after the late, short summer we had.)
