      We only had a dusting on our side but because it was raining and windy late last night, we ended up with little drifts. I see that the forecast is not calling for future snow days but since this is Colorado, that could change in a few hours. I'm not ready for Fall to be over.

      Personally, I could take a small snowstorm our way that starts around Sunday and ends around Friday. That way, my sister and her obnoxious husband who are scheduled to make the drive from Salt Lake (where they are visiting my younger sister) to here for an 8-day visit will just go west.

      Did I just say that out loud?
      May we raise children who love the unloved things - the dandelion, the worm, the spiderlings.
      Children who sense the rose needs the thorn and run into rainswept days the same way they turn towards the sun...
      And when they're grown and someone has to speak for those who have no voice,
      may they draw upon that wilder bond, those days of tending tender things and be the one.

        And it goes on until about May? You cannot pay me to live in CO.

          Not really. The dusting of snow that we got was long gone by late morning. We're back in the 60's with extended forecast in the low 70's for next week. Just as we can have a Spring snow, we can also have a Fall one. We do have seasons here, they just get mixed up sometimes.

          Although, the Farmer's Almanac predicts a long, cold winter for the US.

            Waiting for a long weekend to drive up into the Sierra and introduce HRH to real snow. A few places already have a base and some even have a lift or 2 open. We won't be skiing but just want to visit snow and then drive back down to perpetual spring (or perpetual fall, as you prefer).

                  Just heard on the radio a few minutes ago that some places in the Black Hills got over three and a half feet of snow over the last couple of days.


                  It was 89 here today.

                    We're getting our annual month of "summer." It was almost 80 at the warmest point today, with a breeze off the bay mitigating the "heat." Down in the 50s tonight.

                      Somewhere, my father has a picture (slide film) of something very similar.

                      Back in the mid-'80s, he had a business conference in Seattle, and then had a day to kill before he had another meeting in the area, so he rented a car and drove as far as he could up Mt. Ranier before the road was closed. They had berms (for lack of a better term) of snow this tall on either side of the road where they had ploughed, so he put the camera on the roof of the car, set the timer, and then took a picture of himself standing next to the side of the road.

                        I told someone new to the area yesterday that there's absolutely no telling in October around here. Ten years ago, it was well over 90 here on my birthday (October 24) and raining every other day, and I was furious because I was still having to mow a full acre on a steep slope with a push-mower that year. Three years ago, we had about two inches of snow on the overnight between September 30 and October 1. When I was about 8, we had about ten inches of snow on my birthday, but I very distinctly remember getting to go out and ride my new bike on my twelfth birthday and it was pretty brutally hot (not 90, but well above 80, to be sure).
