Black slug. Segment one: Snow, 0:05. It is snowing very hard outside, but the ground is not yet covered in snow. The camera pans around the street, yard, and house showing everywhere that it is snowing. Cars in town are starting to get covered by the snow. Some businessmen walk around in it. Now the ground is beginning to be covered and some men are throwing snowballs. Many dressed up adults stand under the cover of a building. The person with the camera drives around the neighborhood to show all of the snow. Everything is covered in at least a half inch of snow except for the roads. House after house and building after building have snow all over them. People in front of a house are making snowmen. Everything in sight has snow on it, even tree branches. Back inside, people are warmed in front of a fire. Black slug. Segment two: Family, 3:03. A woman places a bowl on the kitchen table. Outside, she tends to her flowers.

Down the street, some leaves can be seen changing colors. Out over a white fence more changing leaves can be seen. A road and then a lake with trees changing colors. Various fall scenes are shown.

The family gathers around the table to get food and eat. They have chairs spread out for people to sit on. A boy sits on a bench drinking a soda bottle that is half his size. After they have all eaten, they open cards and presents. Two boys try to roll a barrel across the yard, while other family members climb a ladder up a tree. A man walks around the house to the door and is followed by children running after him. He walks out over to the camera. People come out of the house after him.
