First Snow Sunday October 20 2013

Well we had our first snow early Sunday morning. I knew something was up when Chance came in all wet.  He nudged me with his cold nose and I reached out to pet him and tell him to go back to sleep and my hand was all wet…he was just a wagging his tail…like a little kid  anxious to share his early morning discovery.

Scarecrow in the snow

My scarecrow was all snowy.

Sunny Sunflowers are all snowy

My sunny sunflowers were snowy instead of sunny.

Turkeys in the snow  Sunday

The wild turkeys were out and about. It was a grey dull dreary day, yes the snow melted, I am certain it is only a matter of time before it sticks on the ground…traditionally our 3rd snow will stay.  We went 165 days without snow on the ground, from May 7 until October 20. Uffda.  Doesn’t sound like global warming to me. 

We don’t have the new snow stick made yet.  It is on our list of things to do:)

  4. I am so not ready for snow. It was such a long winter last year and then such a crappy spring. Now we are expecting a light snow. Rethinking my plans to visit my son at Christmas - probably move the visit up this year to an earlier date.

  10. Math lesson for me this morning... 165 days snowless = 200 with snow! Oh man! And even with each end most likely being off and on snow, that is still a lot of days in white. Here's to your leaves all coming down with today's snow! Global warming indeed. I love how the doom and gloomers and hand wringers continually change up the horrors of the near future. I'm sure they would have a "yes, but" for your extreme snow and cold.

  11. We saw our first flakes this morning on the way to school. The kids seemed excited, though they know it won't actually accumulate for a little while yet.

  12. Brrr.... even your pictures look cold!
    We beat you... sort of. There was snow in our area, twice, but we haven't been there. Perhaps that doesn't count?!

  15. We are talking snow Tuesday. The northwest wind out of Canada is not our favorite wind. I would like the global warming to stall our snow.

  30. Oh gosh! I didn't realize that you had snow already! Whoohoo! I bet Chance was excited. It's sure been cold enough. But I don't think we've had any yet--all that hot city air in Fargo, ya know. ;)
