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.
