First Snowstorm of the Season
I know you all think I'm weird but I LOVE snow and winter. According to my Dad I'm the only one in my family who "rhapsodizes about the virtues of winter." :) But I was silly pleased to see the snow when we woke up yesterday morning. There's just something about the first snowstorm of the season that I look forward to every fall. I did spend the weekend shivering endlessly, though. Going from 76 degrees to 43 in just a matter of days does not make for an easy transition and my poor shivering body had a hard time. Strangely enough, although normally I would like for the temperatures to stay down now that we're into October, I'm actually pleased that we're going back up to the 70's again later this week. I have 4 bushes left to plant and I desperately need to get my lawn mowed! I have weeds still to pull and mulch still to spread. But after that? Bring on the cold and snow! I'm ready!!
(And now I just know I'm going to get some comments along the lines of, "You call that snow? That's a piddly amount compared to how much WE got!" And then I will, invariably, be jealous. Sigh.)
