Our First Real Snow = Barf

Yesterday and the day before it tried to snow up at our house but it didn't stick. (Score one for the good guys.) Once you got to the valley there was nothing but obnoxiously cold wind and maybe a little rain.  This morning we woke up to this. Pumpkins can be cute with snow caps but this was too much. We pretty much lost the stems. Boo. 

This morning when I got up it was still mostly dark and as you can maybe see there was still some snow falling. 

I drove the carpool and brought my camera with me. The sun coming over the mountain was actually really pretty. I'm afraid this doesn't do it justice. Sorry about the roof in the picture. 

There was a lot of snow even down at the school which surprised me.

Looking down onto the valley. 

Looking up at the newly covered mountains.

Have I mentioned lately that I hate snow? I guess if I have to have it though this is the best way. It's not on the road. Thank goodness. The next six months are going to be hell.

Six months? I think you're being optimistic. :P

We had flurries the other night however they only lasted 5 minutes. My boys are ready for snow, however I am not sure that I am ready. I like the snow as long as I don't have to go out in it..

We have actually had unseasonably warm weather - the night before last I had to get up in the middle of the night to change from flannel pj's. Last night I had the air conditioner on in the bedroom. Yesterday was about 75!!
I'm trying to enjoy it because I know it won't last.

p.s. I tried to get into your old blog the other day and I couldn't. Did you take it off-line? Just wondering.

I too, hate to see the snow come. I wish Obama would pass a law to keep snow off the streets! He seems to be the king of liking to control everythng, so why not the weather too! Beautiful pictures.
