Rejoice, rejoice!

There is word that snow is in the immediate offing.  They have even used the “s” word in the weather forecasts.  Oh joy and delight are mine!

Now, it’s off to gather coats and boots …..

    This just isn’t right! Give me sunscreen and flipflops any day! I grew up in OH and do enjoy the changing seasons but SNOW in October? I don’t think so! BTW – it is 65 degrees this morning — almost low enough to make me think of chili for supper.

    An interesting note — We lived in Ecuador for a short time and while we were in an area where the weather never varied, the North Americans began to get out their fall/winter clothes once the “months” changed and dressed appropriately for their home states! Ecuadorian temperatures were still cool in the am and warm by noon – day after day, month after month!

    Off to enjoy the “cool” day!

    Oh Renee, not even a LITTLE bit of snow?? You don’t miss sledding or skiing or anything?!!!

    Sadly, our snow won’t stick around. It’s going to fall and disappear, but the hope….the anticipation of seeing those beautiful white flakes falling brings JOY to my heart!

    I’d melt in Ecuador. 😉 I might fall into a stupor even. I crave the changes of the seasons. I’d be one who was wandering around in my winter clothes in warm weather, for sure! 😆

    Dear Lord, let me put the garden to rest before it strikes!

    A beautiful glistening white blanket of snow we all awoke to this glorious morning!!!…My kiddos all bounded out of bed (doesn’t happen very often), bundled up and headed out….It was SOOOO much fun!!! I welcomed them back in from the cold with hot mugs of cocoa….YUM!!! I just love the change of the seasons…God is so GOOD!!!…..

    What joy! For you! I must admit that we experienced all the snow we care to at the 2001 Presidential Inauguration in D.C. I’m with Renee….flipflops and sunscreen for me….at least during the daylight hours. I do love sitting around a fire in the early mornings and evenings, and the lower humidity that is the hallmark of fall, winter and spring in sw Florida. However, dearest Dawn, I am thrilled for y’all.

    Oh, please, please let it hold off. All our winter stuff is on the east side of the state. One day of cool, and then the rest warmish, ok? 🙂

    Patricia, Thank you. I appreciate the “warm” sentiments. 😉

    Laura, I”M SO JEALOUS! We will likely see 6 – 8 snowflakes drift by the window – nothing even faintly resembling ground cover!!! 🙂 Tell your kiddos to enjoy it for me, too, would ya?!

    Winkies, my dear, I think you better make another trip east to get some warm clothes, from the looks of the forecast. 😕

    Kim, What’s left in the garden?!! Green tomatoes? (That’s what I ALWAYS had left)

  8. Kim's Vineyard says:

    Oh, Dawn if it were ONLY green tomatoes I would be telling the snow…”bring it on!!”

    I had the bright idea to plant everbearing strawberries this spring and while I wasn’t looking, they formulated a take-over plan and executed it flawlessly!!!!! Literally strawberry plants everywhere!!

    I have a plan to trim runners, replant and get them organized and covered before snow, but we shall see!

    😆 OH MY! A well formulated coup by the strawberries? Hmmm…. it seems like that would leave you in a real JAM, huh?!! (OK, bad attempt at humor. I’ll leave now.) 😉
