missing fall

Fall is my favorite time of year! I relish in the varying shades of leaves as they change from orange, yellow, and red. My stomach flutters in delight with the expansion of my wardrobe as I pull out sweaters, scarves, and boots. I savor the smell of freshly baked apple-pie. And, who doesn't like candied apples? My usual dislike for soup has even turned into a love affair - (honestly, why bother with hot soup when it's still 100-degrees in October?) But, here when temperatures have dropped to the mid-60s, soup is just the thing to satisfy my hunger and warm my chilled bones. And, who can deny themselves the contagious glee of the approaching holiday season?

But alas, snow has come to Utah! Jason even drove home a plow truck last night in anticipation of the impending snow. I reluctantly accept predictions for an early winter this year; but really, does it have to come BEFORE Halloween?

O, where art thou, my beloved fall?

I heard that it snowed in Utah- bummer! Hopefully it doesn't last for Halloween so the kids can show off their Halloween costumes!

We're in the same boat here! Although, we had a lovely sunny day today, so maybe we will not have snow on Halloween? I can only hope!

As a child in Utah, I remember it snowing on/around Halloween about once every 5 or so years. It happens, but not normally.
