Not With A Whimper, More Like A Bang ...

As you can see by my title, I've taken a few liberties with T.S. Elliot's words. Winter showed up Friday night here in St. Paul, with a whump and a thump and a bang, arriving in snowy splendor. Nine inches of the very heavy wet stuff dropped down on our fair city. The old plum tree that has faithfully shaded our porch for over 35 years snapped in half like a tiny twig. The only good news is that when the tree fell, it missed landing on my car! My photo shows the top of the tree lying on the ground outside the porch.
