The Colors of the Season
No pictures of yesterday’s colors, which were mostly white. Snow covered us and there is plenty of time ahead to cover the white time of year.
Today the usual colors of fall again showed through as the snow melted. Perhaps the most dominant shades this fall are the color of water and mature crops that haven’t been harvested because of all the water. We surely need a break in the weather as each day brings less probability of warm, dry days. Again I think back to the research I did on the book “God in a God-Forsaken Land.” I found that during the 1870s weather patterns were very similar to present conditions. During those years few crops were planted and harvested in this area.
