Guess What Word I Just Heard the Weatherman Mention?

SNOW! It's September, people! The last time it snowed here was the last day of school--May 23.

I should probably clarify a little. The snow is forecast for the county just west of us (where John and I went for our anniversary weekend), and it won't likely snow below 8,000 feet, but that's just over the mountains from us and pretty close to home! Crazy, huh?

Not crazy ~ awesome!! In Alaska we called it "termination dust" ~ it signaled the "termination" of the summer (and everyone's camping trips with it). Trust me, Mer ~ move back to Arkansas and you'll actually MISS snow on the mountains in September. ;)

Blessings,
Trish

Meredith,

Oh, the memories of "off-peak" snows. We lived in CO during a July snow one year!!

Iowa gets more snow than Colorado Springs, which surprised me. It's also colder, less sunny, and the snow stays for months. I miss how the snow used to melt in a few days or even an afternoon!
