Stormy November - Gray and Green

A few days ago we had a windstorm typical of the ones we get in the winter, which make branches fall on powerlines and the power go out overnight. This last one was not "Storm of the Century" material, or even "Storm of 2010".  But still the next day there are branches and fallen trees everywhere, and I'm always glad we have a generator and a nice warm fireplace.  The aftermath is mostly cleaned up now but the streets in our rural area are still lined with branches.

 It's stopped raining for a few minutes, and I was struck again by how (as always) green dominates the landscape, but gray really takes over as well this time of year, what with the overcast sky and low lighting.  


If you can't beat 'em, join 'em.
