First Snow of the Season

I've been enjoying a long, leisurely autumn, the trees slowly changing colors this year... but our first snow has officially arrived.

Its lovely and white and slushy and outside, but I fear for the trees. Most have not yet shed their leaves and the heavy, wet snow is dangerously weighing down tree branches everywhere.

Our neighbor has already lost a rather large branch off her elm tree that came crashing down in our yard and crushed part of my laundry line.

Temperatures are supposed to rise to the mid-50's again over the weekend, so the snow won't last long. Hopefully that one branch will be the only casualty.
