First Snow of the Season
I woke up this morning to cold. Beautiful, awesome, smells like winter, cold. It had rained during the night, and the clouds were still sitting really low on the mountains around my house. I was sure there was snow under there. And when I dropped Creamie off at preschool this is what I saw. October 6, 2011 9:03 am.
I was so excited for the clouds to lift so I could see the peaks. Mountain peaks covered with snow are one of my very very favorite things to look at. But 2.5 hours later when I went to pick her up the clouds that had started to break and lift had changed their minds.
October 6, 2011 11:33 am. The same view of the street. It was snowing hard. And it’s probably not cold enough for it to stick around for very long, but it sure is beautiful.
I should point out that last Friday it was 91 degrees (33 C). It was so hot it broke records for this time of year. And today it smells like winter and it just might warm up to 50 (10C). Maybe. It kind of feels like it is about to the freezing point out there, but I bet that is partly due to that nice wet snow that is dusting everything. Quite a change for just 7 days. It smells like winter outside and I can’t wait for the first hard frost that will kill all these pesky plants I am allergic to. I woke up to snow and had the AC on last night because there is so many floaties in the air I am allergic to I can’t open the windows even a crack. That right there? Totally Lame. Hope your Thursday is fantastic, even if there is no snow.
PS- Out last snowstorm was on April 30th. I love that we can have snow for 7 months of the year. And this year I don’t think all the snow completely melted out of the mountains. I love it. Also, thanks to a $60 antibiotic Creamie is finally well enough to go to school. Which I also love. And so does she.
