snow in the forecast!

39 degrees in northern colorado at noon, chance of rain/snow tomorrow and saturday. i got caught in the cold yesterday evening because i was fooled by the nice weather when i left for work, but i pulled out the winter gear last night.

i'm exciting for snow, i'm hoping it actually happens

1. How wonderful, my dear fizzgig!

I hope you get some...

Just enough to be pretty, and not a nuisance, LOL!

i'll be in the car that is need of new tires. i should be fine as long as it's less than a few inches. just another damn thing on the list of things that we need to spend money on.

3. OMG, you said the "s" word!

Last year we got some snow just a few days before Halloween. It was so weird. It was also the most snow we got all season which was also pretty weird.

7. Same here in North Georgis.

I would love to see some snow, but we only get it about once a year and it seldom sticks around. The worst snow we have had the past few years really snarled traffic as people here are not used to driving on snow and ice and the state does not have the right equipment to clear the roads. Big semi trucks were stranded all up and down the freeways.

9. I always get excited for the first snow, too!

But by the end of January, I'm ready for the thaw.

Bonne hiver!

15. I recently moved to an area that rarely experiences snow

That I am excited about!! I have had enough of it in my life. I'll be happy just seeing it on a postcard - from somewhere else.

Enjoy yours!
