Sunday, September 30th

We haven't been doing much lately. As now my Master's classes are taking up most of all my free time, and then some. The wet summer has carried on into fall. We have had many rainy days lately. This past Friday night, September 28th, we got an early treat. SNOW!

It had been raining most of the evening. As we looked outside around 10, the rain had changed to big wet snowflakes.The snow carried for most of the night. When I got up Saturday morning, I saw nearby homes' roofs still covered in snow.

 There was a bit of accumulation on cars and even some still on the ground.

The streets were clear.

The official snow was measured at 0.2" at the airport.

However, on the hillside they received as much as 7 inches! Since the snow didn't accumulate Friday night, Saturday, September 29th, will be the official first snowfall of the season. Hope this is not a sign of things to come. Ths is over a month earlier than last year's first snow. Hopefully, next weekend we will be able to get out of town for a few days on our anniversary trip. If the weather cooperates, of course.
