an early surprise


anyone in the northeast will remember that we had quite the unusual weather on october 29th of this year, involving several inches of snow.  it was a saturday, and the saturday before halloween, so we carved our jack-o-lanterns, wiped the pumpkin guts off our hands, and went out to play in the snow.  here are a couple of pictures of the strange experience, including one of our gerber daisies, who wasn't too sure about her icy hat. 



legend is that you take the day of the month of the first snowstorm, and that indicates how many more snowstorms you'll have.  so, since ours occurred on the 29th of the month, we will have 29 more snowstorms this winter.  yippee. 

actually, i love snow.  i just wish it would stay white for like 24 hours, and then instantly melt away.  it's brown slush i don't like.  actually, come to think of it, i don't like slush of any kind, unless of course it is followed by several e's.  unless mother nature starts dropping blue raspberry or mango madness on us, she can keep her slush to herself.
