YUCK! Snow!

OK, for all you snow lovers out there. Here is what I woke up to this morning. Guess winter is here for good now. I was sort of hoping it would hold off until after Halloween.

If you want the snow, come on up. Oh, and bring your shovels, snow tires and some road salt too please. The temp is going to hover around 0 (30F) today so that means it will be really fantastic driving conditions.

LMAO at those of you wanting the snow, methinks after 6 months of it you might change your mind! I'm not really that upset with it. Just sort of sad that winter is here already. Fall was really lovely this year and I was enjoying it.

I love winter. I love to be freezing cold. I detest anything over 65 degrees. I don't care for the beach. I like pine trees. What the heck am I doing in SoCal??

Lucky you, never seen snow. Our pre-monsoon Northerly winds started yesterday and the temp. jumped up to 32C as quick as a flash, air conditioning time for us now.

Darn fine question. I'm not sure I believe you though since your vacation of choice is VEGAS!! If there is anywhere hotter than SoCal, its Vegas. Silly girl. You want snow and pine trees come for a visit. See that lovely one in my front yard? There's even a couple of bird feeders and a bird house for you to watch. And no cranky old ladies. Oh, and no rats. We don't have rats in Alberta.
