As November 21, So The Winter…

“As November 21, so the winter.” – Farmers Almanac

If there’s truth to that old adage, we could have a mixed bag of tricks this winter!  The sun rose this morning in beautiful shades of peach and pink, but a winter storm is on the way for tonight and tomorrow that will deposit a foot of snow with high winds.  My older daughter is flying to California tomorrow and has looked forward to this vacation for a long time, so I hope things settle down by then.  What’s the weather like on YOUR November 21st?


Have you ever noticed a tree standing naked against the sky,
How beautiful it is?
All its branches are outlined, and in its nakedness
There is a poem, there is a song.
Every leaf is gone and it is waiting for the spring.
When the spring comes, it again fills the tree with
The music of many leaves,
Which in due season fall and are blown away.
And this is the way of life.

–   Krishnamurti

  1. I’d somehow lost the link to your site – but hooray – all is well – I’m able again to feed my need for poetry and great photos. Enjoying the 1st snows – and finding lots of new sites – thanks.

  2. I don’t think we are do to have snow, if we are I haven’t heard about it.

    In the morning I am posting a snow shot, but won’t send it to you. It is only a couple of snowflakes.

  3. Thanks, all, for your comments and kind words. Our November 21st was a lovely day overall, until evening when the storm started. Perhaps that means we’re in for a winter “bag of mixed tricks”. :-)

I appreciate and welcome your comments!
