Francine In Retirement
Seeing Life Through Photography



 It’s not quite a winter wonderland, but we received our first taste of winter on Nov. 12th, enough snow to tell us the seasons are changing.

The heaviest of the snow came down overnight, switching over from rain with the dropping temperatures.

According to the National Weather Service, November 12 was the snowiest day in Pittsburgh history with 2.4 inches, breaking the previous record of 1.7 inches back in 1911. (information taken off the internet)

As I looked out my window that early morning before the break of dawn, I saw our first snow fall.  A blanket of snow on the cars, lawns and trees, and what looked like cotton balls on our cobblestone street made an interesting sight to see.

When the morning light appeared I saw that the cotton balls were really falling leaves covered with snow.
