First Snow!

The weatherman (ok, technically our little Apple weather desktop widget - who listens to a weatherman any more?) said it was coming and he/it was right - we woke up to a white pre-Halloween this morning! As much as I love snow and the heralding of another ski season on its way, I do have to admit that it was a bit of a shocker to see those big white flakes coming down. I was in shorts last week! But that's just how Utah is - Spring and Fall are just a couple of weeks that sometimes find their way between Winter and Summer. Of course, today's flakes were mostly melted off by the time we walked out of church, but for a few hours there it was beginning to look a lot like ski season!

With all of the clouds, it was hard to get a good photo of Timp today - here's the best picture I could capture of our local purple mountain's majesty. I have to admit, she sure does look purty all snow-capped.

How pretty! Fall is one of the things I miss about the East Coast. It has been downright chilly and windy here in Vegas, which is strange to experience after temps in the 90s hanging around extra long. I think they said snow was getting down to around 5,000 ft here -- crazy for mid-October.

"She."

Do you know the story of Timpanogos, or are you just using a feminine pronoun?

Good question Jason - I'm pretty sure there's an indian princess involved... I'll have to research that one again.

And, Dad, we still have at last a month to go :(
