So three days ago it was warm and sunny and 76 degrees outside.
Today it is 34 degrees and snowing.
Any guesses on what weather will turn up this weekend?
It's been snowing off and on all day. It'll snow really hard and crazy all blowing around with the cold wind, cover everything with just the thinnest blanket of white, and then it'll stop and the sun will come out and melt everything away. It's completed this cycle at least five times since we've been home from preschool this morning.
Savannah loves it! She has spent probably 90% of her time at a window somewhere in our house today. If she's not watching the snow (because it stopped for the moment), she's watching FOR the snow. I know this isn't the greateest picture... you really can't see it, but it is snowing really hard.
I'm glad for the little dusting because ever since we told her the summer's over and the weather is getting colder, she asks me almost everyday if it's going to snow yet. I wonder why she's so excited about the snow this year. I don't think she remembers actually being in any snow because it barely snowed back home last year, and the years before I'm sure she was too young to remember. Anyway, I'm glad it's snowed early because now maybe that'll tide her over till we get some real snow later this winter and she won't ask me about it every day.
And I'm glad it snowed just because I love the snow. Ask me about that at the end of this winter of snow and really really cold temperatures and we'll see what I say. Anytime I say I'm excited to be here and experience a "real" winter, rather than Portland's usually mild winters, people always ask if I've ever experienced a midwest winter. Like if I had, I wouldn't be so excited about it. Well no, I've never spent the whole season in the midwest, but I don't think I'll mind it. I really don't mind the cold... and if there's snow along with it, all the better!
But like I said, ask me again in March, right?!?
