Christmas In October!

This is the picture I took before I went down to Salt Lake last weekend:


Prettyness right? Everything is green enough that you can tell Fall is just starting to show her colors. While taking this picture I was all excited for leaf fights and caramel covered apples. I was hoping Fall would stick around for a few months this year. Clearly, The Weather had other plans.

This is what I came home to:


Not cool. Not cool at all.

*Please excuse this brief intermission of actual writing while I download every Christmas song I can think of and decorate my room with red/green crepe paper THREE MONTHS in advance*

That is kind of depressing to see snow so soon! One of the things I miss about the East Coast is the long fall.

At least you have a definitive season change...I was born and raised in Key West...one season..summer all year. Now I live in Mississippi and it's progressed to two seasons....mostly stifling summer and a few days of bitter cold. I think the snow is pretty...what does the bird in your attic think?

As a high school student, I must say I've come to really love snow and its power to persuade the superintendent that the school should be canceled...But I get how it can be troublesome for you adults out there.

I'm not ready for the snow here yet...but I'll admit that it looked danged pretty.

Not cool at all? But it must have been for all that snow to stick...

I'm a big fan of the snow. Here near Seattle though, we're lucky if it stays around for more than a day or two.
