So I decided to take advantage of the nice fall day to take a jaunt up to Blue Cloud Abbey. Blue Cloud is really a neat place. My wife had never been, so we took a drive up there. The leaves, especially the monastery Japanese maples, were just beautiful. We also got a few apples from their orchard...delicious.
I got home and decided since it was such a nice fall day, I better make the last of the grilling season count. I got out two T-bone steaks and grilled out. I was wearing a flannel shirt, but no jacket. That was around 5 PM.
It is now 7:40 PM and there is snow falling, with an inch accumulation expected.
Welcome to South Dakota.
