Gray skies are just clouds passing over. (D. Ellington)

Last weekend for our 38th anniversary we traveled to Lake Superior staying in Ely, in the Boundary Waters area. This was taken on Highway l leaving Finland, Minnesota as we approached the lake. What a sight! Just the tip of the lake runs for miles.

We had snow and gray skies which followed us back to the Twin Cities where it snowed the rest of the weekend.

Happy Friday!

I think your snow will last a little longer than ours did. When the snow falls it is usually a sign of warmer air coming in in this part of the world.

Happy anni, Noni! Isn't fall an exhilarating time, no matter the weather? It's such a mixed bag.
Thanks for sharing.

Ah yes, the joy of fall/winter in Minnesota. The first year we lived there (1991, I think), there was a huge Halloween snow. I liked winter there, because you at least get a decent amount of sun, even if it is thirty below in the morning.

Really? There's a place called Finland, Minnesota? Neat! Gray or not, beautiful skies over beautiful scenery.

I shouldn't really be surprised that there was a place in Minnesota called Finland - but it is after all one of our neighbouring countries (as you know). And it looks quiet the same.

Beautiful! I love the snow on the trees. The first time. Subsequent times can usually kiss my a$$, especially if I have to shovel. Sorry for working so blue on your blog.

I like the second shot. I was just talking to my mum who is visiting from Scotland that one of my regrets is that my kids have never seen real snow. Sad.
