This past weekend we had the most wonderfu guests. Graduate students from MIT coming back to visit their alma mater - Cornell. All were very polite, and very nice folks. You are welcome back anytime - safe travels to all of you!
The first real signs of winter showed up this weekend. White flakes of snow busily dancing around the yard but not quite making to the grass before they melted. There was a serious frost though and I actually had to put some salt on the front steps so we would not be airborne running down.
