October 30 Post-Nor’easter

More than 700,000 are without power in Connecticut this morning after the historic Nor’easter left its mark. We are lucky. We still have power. Will be heading out in a few minutes to assess damage, but here’s a few shots of our world in south-central CT.

This is the same beech tree in yesterday’s post.

The view from our front porch …

Oaks still in full leaf, weighted by late October snow.

The flowers still visible yesterday as snow just started falling are now completely covered in ten inches of the heavy wet stuff.

Yesterday, this sight of snow-white mums resting safely under the cover of the front porch caught my eye.

At morning light the same mums were covered in wind-blown snow.

Now it’s time to shovel.
