I Can Talk About Snow Again.

     Yes, that's right ! It's snowing here today!


This takes the shine off my garden

Big slushy snowflakes 

     It rained off and on in the night. when I looked out this morning it was snowing. It snowed until about 3:00 PM. The snow melted on the ground but did accumulate on the house roofs.

    Now Far Side has her snow stick. Far Side also has a contest as to when the snow is gone. But I'm sure I beat her this year for the first snow.

    Our weather man says we get one or two early September snows every ten years.

    1. I will think about the snow stick. It's fun to watch yours. We get chinooks and so sometimes much of the snow melts.

  3. Well that's just WRONG! I was sure you were going to say that it was some sort of tree fluff.. sheesh! We're only a few days out of August. It's still officially summer. I'd lodge a complaint. ;)

  9. I am just watching the weather report on my TV and it is covering both your snow and the floods in Pheonix. Weather here is finally just perfect...wonder how long that will last.

  21. My hubby is just reading the news for us. We are in for stormy night, basements flooded.

    You have snow already.

    Red how bad is this.

    Where has our weeks gone with summer.

    Looks bad for Fall again. The leaves will fall off from rain.

    1. Summer passes quickly but there will be another summer. At least we don't have flooded basements. That's awful.
