I was thinking that is must have really dumped on us overnight as there were some flurries last night when I went to bed. However, when I peeked out the window, the streets were snow-free. The noise was that of several plowers, however they were scooping up the piles of leaves that have been pushed into the streets. Why there is a need to do this when those leaves have been there for at least 3 weeks, I'll never know.
It was still chilly outside. As I pulled out of my driveway, I noticed that there was a dusting of powdery snow on each roof, although none remained on the ground. The houses were decorated, like they were dusted with sugar... or perhaps cocaine--whichever simile you prefer, you decide. Anyway, it was powdery!
