Uh, Mother Nature? We need to talk...

We need to talk about why, when I woke up this morning-- Oct. 16-- my yard looked like this:

I'm not trying to be a pain, but... well, it's a little early for me. Perhaps we could hold off at least until the outdoor soccer season is done? I mean, don't get me wrong, I love the snow. Love it. When I was a kid, I used to hope it would snow on my birthday. But that's the thing... my birthday is in early December. So, I'm not trying to tell you how to do your job or anything, but maybe you could save the white stuff for a little later in the year? I mean, I wouldn't want you to run out. And, you know, all my soccer leagues will have moved indoors by then.

And I'm moving to a higher elevation point... in LESS THAN A MONTH.

It's beautiful, but you're right. Definitely too early.

Wow - that's more than we got!

Oh sj - the fun of our town's weather! I've seen winters where my mother-in-law gets nothing but 1" of ice and loses power for days while we get 6" of snow. You're going to have fun up on that hill.

Hey we should all report in with each other when the weather gets bad to see who's having what!
