SNOW...........

Snow......that fluffy white stuff that we all like to see around Christmas showed up yesterday afternoon. Here it is not quit mid October and we are seeing signs of winter.....Yes I know this is Saskatchewan and I should know to expect anything when it comes to the weather.

I remember back in 1997 or 1998 when it snowed something like 3 feet of snow at Thanksgiving. The snow was up the railing on my deck. Our power went out for 72+ hours...it was getting pretty cold in the house. My youngest daughter decided to go outside to make snow angels, she didn't even have to lay down to make them. She walked out on the deck, leaned back and made a row of perfect snow angels. Her sister and brother helped pull her up so not to wreck the angels. Our 1977 GM truck looked more like a semi than a half ton after all that snow. My husband's god daughter had spent a night with us before the power went out, she couldn't understand that the power being out meant that the lights wouldn't work....she say I know the power is out but could you turn on the lights its dark in here. We finally had to tell her the lights were broken for her to understand. That snow lasted until spring, made for a long winter.

Snow.......according to the forecast it should be gone by tomorrow. It is hard enough to adjust to it being dark before 7pm, I'm not ready for the fluffy white stuff just yet.
