The Last Bit of Fall

So I guess this is it! Maine's big white winter glacier has arrived. It hasn't hit us here in Portland yet, but will now begin it's slow and deliberate roll southeast across the state from the northwest mountains and valleys.

I love winter, I love snow, but Portland becomes a non-stop, four-month round of bumper cars. Those of us who know how to drive in snow are canceled out by the vast numbers of those who don't. And in this economy the odds of getting whacked are tenfold because heck, who can afford snow tires!

Before the games begin and the landscape becomes arctic-ish, I put the last bit of fall - the last of the rich and warm colors of Maine's fall landscape - to paper.
