Last week it was still pretty much summer, and then all of a sudden this week is got ridiculously cold. I mean the two-comforters-on-the-bed, leggings-under-your-jeans kind of cold. Yesterday I got word that Snowshoe had their first snowfall of the season. Granted, it was just flurries and WAY up the mountain from where we are, but it still bodes ill. Last year's first snowfall was two weeks later, and look how that winter turned out.
Don't get me wrong, I adore winter and especially snow, but it's OCTOBER, for pity's sake. Let me enjoy the autumn for a little bit before I need to drag out the long underwear and down coat, huh? Call back in a month of two, then I'll be ready for you.
It is pretty, I'll give it that.
