A Little Off the Ends

It's a big adjustment.  My hair hasn't been this short since I was three years old when it grew out from baby hair....but, I think I like it.  I think I like it a lot actually...a reaction I wasn't anticipating having.  I grew it so long and cut it to try to do a little good in the world, but selfishly gained a sense of lightness and freedom.  I recently saw a quote that I can't seem to find now that said something along the lines of "Doing something good for someone else is the fastest way to make yourself feel good."  I wish I remembered this more.

October Snow

Over the weekend we got the biggest October snowstorm I  can remember.  We ended up with a foot of heavy, wet snow.  Luckily we didn't lose power, though we did lose two big branches off one of our Norway Maples.

I was so excited for this snow.  I don't know that I'll ever be one of those people who dreads the snow.  For me, the snow holds some sort of magic and I can't help but be completely entranced when it starts to fall.  Much of the snow has melted, only a few inches remain...and as much as I love it, I am hoping it will all melt off, I still have tulip bulbs to plant!  After they're in the ground it can snow all the way through April as far as I'm concerned!

I'm curious if there is anyone out there reading from the Northeast, how much snow did you end up with in your neck of the woods?
