Winter has arrived. It's a little early, but I'm not complaining.

After a day of rain and some flurries, it's snowing now. If my mother was right, I'm going to be very happy this winter.

She had an Old Wives Tale or superstition about snow. She said that the date of the first snowfall predicted the number of snowstorms we would have. Since today is October 29, it looks like we will have 29 snowstorms this winter. I'm so happy. Let me enjoy today before you hate me for wishing all this snow on us.

Now maybe October 29 will be remembered for the first snowfall (a record) and not the big crash in 1929.

How exciting! Take note: This comment from someone who is still jumping into the swimming pool, our temps being in the 80's!
Happy Halloween. This year you can skip the bobbing for apples and go for the snowball fights!

Snow? Already? Yikes. I have a feeling that this is going to be one witch of a winter.

After the Summer From Hell, we've actually been going down below freezing at night, so I'm really not complaining, just observing.
