After having read the headlines about the Eastern Seaboard being hit with snow and power outages to over 2 million people, I just had to add this post. I understand that much of the reason was that the snow fell on colored leaves still attached to the trees there. The sheer weight of the snow accumulating on that vegetation caused many of the branches to snap and fall to the ground, or worse yet to fall onto vehicles and power lines.
I’m feeling a bit sad for those on the East Coast that they didn’t have more time to enjoy those beautiful colors. The pictures on this post were taken by my husband just a few days ago. The brilliance of mother nature’s palette has no equal.
Winter is my favorite season of the year, but Fall comes in as a very close second.
