Last week’s October snow storm not only disrupted lives throughout the northeastern United States, it also disrupted the life of the natural world. Driving to work each morning I saw broken limbs and broken trees. Thousands of trees will need to be removed in the Lehigh Valley alone. Gardens came to an unexpected halt.
Instead of turning golden brown, hostas iced over and turned soft.
Mornings appeared surreal as snow was “touched” by the rays of a rising sun.
Melting snow exposed a world of neutral shades.
Within days temperatures rose and life began to return to normal.
