This is a shot of the street we used to live on in Maryland. We had a big snowstorm that left almost 30″ of snow. I’m glad I was able to catch the sunset. As I write this, it’s 85 F. outside here in California. Quite the contrast. I love snow, but I don’t want to live in it anymore.
This was taken in Maryland where they have gorgeous autumn leaves.

Have you heard of duolingo? It’s a great free app for learning all kinds of languages. I’m currently studying Swedish because I loved visiting Sweden and hope to go back. It’s very quick and easy with lots of opportunities to review the lessons you missed. You also get to hear a native speaker for accurate pronunciation. I’m fluent in French and have a working knowledge of Spanish and German, so I think that gave me a bit of an edge. Swedish is also surprisingly close to English. I don’t know if I’ll become fluent, but it’s been a fun exercise.
For the first time ever, we won’t be handing out candy to trick-or-treaters. We actually don’t expect to have any kids ring the doorbell this year because of the pandemic. So strange, but that’s 2020 for you.
Also, on Halloween night there will be something called a Hunter’s Blue Moon. According to the Farmer’s Almanac, a Halloween full moon visible for all time zones on Earth hasn’t happened since 1944. It won’t happen again until 2039. Cool, huh?It’s called a Hunter’s Moon because it’s the first full moon after the Harvest Moon when hunters used moonlight to find their way.
