Ok, so the snow’s not sticking, but I was a little shocked to be getting snow this early in October. Around Halloween, I expect it. It’s snowed on Halloween before, and I have not been shocked by it. But on October 9? That’s a new one for me.
It was a busy weekend; I went to Minnesota to visit my sister, and we attended some college homecoming festivities there. Friday night we attended a formal gala event, and about 9:00 someone came over to our table and told us it was snowing. Of course I had to drag my sister outside and get a pic in the midst of the mini blizzard. Seriously! It was not a nice “It’s a Wonderful Life” snow . . . it was wind-driven craziness. The pic looks nice, though, and you can barely tell that behind us the wind was driving the snow in a mad sideways line.
All I know is if this is a hint of the winter to come, however, I am seriously thinking of hibernating. We in the Midwest just got done with winter! We were having blizzards well into April. WE NEED A BREAK.
Mother nature, are you listening?!
