What’s This?!

Look what was outside my house this morning when I woke up. Yup, that white stuff is snow.

Actually, by the time I took these photos it had begun to melt away where the sun had been on it the longest. But according to our local meteorologist (who actually works for NOAA and lives in our neighborhood) we got nearly 2 inches of snow and we may get another 2-4″ tomorrow.

Funny thing that happens up here on the mountain though, it is warmer today than it was yesterday.  That is typical for the snow season, it has to warm up to give us snow.  Prediction is that it is going to stay cold here for the next couple of days.

So while the rest of you have Autumn right now, we have sped right into Winter here at the Graves house. Of course this is not that unusual for us, which is why I find it easier to design cold weather crochet projects.  Nearly 9 months of every year is pretty chilly up here.

The really good news? I love cold weather. I was already thinking about Christmas the other day, but it is even more on my mind now. Who knows, I might have all my Christmas gift giving wrapped and cards ready to send before December rolls around. Ha!

  1. I’m not ready to start thinking about snow yet! It’s actually close to 80 here today, too warm for October but it’s supposed to drop dramatically by Sunday. It’s time for fall but not winter!

  2. Hey – there was snow at my house this AM, talk about a shock! Am so not ready for winter, tho I am ready to get a very challenging (and painful) year past us….

    • I know what you mean about not being ready for winter yet. Prediction is more snow tomorrow, even down in town. It’s currently 26F in my backyard. Brrrrr.

      So glad for you and hoping that the challenges of this past year will be vague memories very soon.
