I found the snow shovel(s), turned the compost one last time, put away the last of the outdoor furniture, and said one last goodbye to the yard and garden. I’m ready for snow!

Windy. Low clouds, still soft and wet underneath. The wind sounds colder, “woaning,” then “whissshhhhing” through the trees. I need to make sure my snow shovel (and my back) is ready.
