October snow in Herndon
Yesterday we had a surprise October snow here in Virginia. 2011 has been a year of unusual weather starting with some huge snow last winter (school year) and moving on to a hurricane and a tropical storm in September where we had to use our first “snow” day of the year in the first week of school. In August we had an unusual east coast earthquake and now this freak snow when all the autumn colors are still blazing brightly on the trees. My new point-and-shoot camera has a setting called “vivid” so it really made the leaves pop with color.
