First Snow!

Okay, so most people we've asked when to expect the snow have told us that the first snow usually comes the week of Halloween. Then snow doesn't start sticking until around Thanksgiving.

Imagine our surprise when we woke up this morning to the first snow fall ... on October 11th ... that's 3 weeks early! We all ran out onto our porch and watched it come down, all the while Laci is screaming, "Sled, sled, sled!" (That's all she remembers about snow from our visit to my grandma's house in Spanish Fork, UT this March.) We had to explain to her that there isn't enough snow to go sledding, yet. It wasn't enough to stick or anything, but tomorrow forecasters are predicting up to 6 inches!!!

We Arizonans aren't ready for this stark change in weather ... um, I cut up my only pair of jeans into shorts last winter when I was pregnant with Jacob! Looks like we're going to have to do some serious shopping, and soon!

Snow!? Yeah I can't imagine that at this point. We're still turning on the AC in the car around here. In fact it's been like 95 degrees here for the past few weeks. It's finally cooling down now.
