Snow in September

September 29th, first dusting of snow.  27 degrees outside.  Dirty son of a %#&@$!

Believe it or not, there are confused crocuses blooming just outside the fence.

We are with you, Mary and Hal Apeeno, thinking warm thoughts and getting ready to freeze our asses off. 🙂

  1. 24F and 8 inches of snow on the ground on the eastern slopes of the Canadian Rockies. And it is puking snow on us. Two feet by tomorrow –

  2. Not surprised.

    We hit below 40 yesterday morning (34) for the 1st time.

    It’s winter already… the thermals went on this morning. 🙁

    Back to the news search.

      1. Didn’t mind winter in Commiefornia, Katie, because it really wasn’t. Rarely dropped below fifty, never needed thermals (the only reason I even owned 1 pair was for fishing in the mountains).

        I swore off snow when I left SLC in ’79. We don’t get a lot here (1 to 2 inches at a time, generally), but low 30’s & 20’s are brutal on this old carcass of mine (and especially the occasional teens). 🙁

        1. mary, to be technical, they aren’t thermal, just what’s called leggings. Cotton with some stretch material.
          I only wear the leggings because that’s enough to keep me comfortable. I hate cold legs under my jean skirts.

        1. I don’t call on the thermals until -10……… I hate the cold but great walking weather 40 to 50 degrees and if no wind even -20 here ….it’s a dry cold 🙂

          1. We had that ‘dry cold’ in SLC (that’s why they’re famous worldwide for their ‘powder snow’), but that’s not the case here in OR. Very humid & damp in the winter.

          2. Texas has high humidity which makes heat and cold extreme. Was in Wyoming a few years back. Stood on the porch in 36 degrees early in the morning, didn’t phase me because it’s dry.

  3. no…No…NOOOOO! Keep that crap over there please. (Laughing)

    Nah, I don’t mind winter too much, it’s just too (fill in the blank) long.
    And always punctually challenged ever being ready for it.
    Living where Jim or Mary is, is NOT an option.;)
    It is 63, overcast and sprinkles.

    Make sure you say hi to Quin the Eskimo will ya, Mary?

  4. Just the site of that is utterly disgusting. Thankfully, it’s still warm here but the days are definitely shorter and the trees are turning colors. It’s hard to believe that the shortest day of the year is only three months away. November through March are sucktastic months here.
