First snow of the year
Wet snow falling on a windless night turned the pagoda dogwood, the elm, the crabapple, and the Monarda into what would be devilishly difficult jigsaw-puzzle images.
It's distinctly unusual for Madison to experience measureable snow in October (this was the heaviest October snowfall in a decade). More is expected on the 31st, so I suspect we will have lots of Halloween treats left over.
Snowiest Halloween in the history of Madison, Wisconsin. Didn't melt until November 4.
