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.)

Yea im so not ready for the snow. I have yard work to do this week as well. I'm also hoping it won't be snowing on Halloween, that just isnt fun. But my kids did have fun making a snowman yesterday.

We didn't get much snow. Jeremy said he missed living in NSL because we had more bragging rights when it came to snow. It looks like they got 6-8" while we just got enough to cover our grass. It melted too quick for our kids to even get out and play in it.

As much as I hate the snow, it sure makes for a pretty picture...but only if you catch it before the kids have trampled all over it!

You call that snow . . . just kidding, it's a bit more that landed on my yard on Sunday morning. Your landscaping looks great with the snowfall. I don't think I've seen it since you planted. Must be time for a visit.
