more snow ~

It's only the first week of October and Old Man Winter decided to blow in and give us a tease of what's to come.

This was 4:30 a.m. when I got up with Dear Hubby to see him off to work.  The yard was white with snow!

We couldn't watch television because the snow was over the needle of the dish.  So before leaving for work, Dear Hubby ~ what a sweetie ~ took a pipe and put the mop into it so he could reach and cleaned it off for me.  

It really wasn't that necessary of a thing to do ... because I didn't even stay up this morning and watch TV like I usually do.  I went back to bed until 7:00 and by then most of the snow had already melted off. lol

It's a little early for snow in my neck of the woods.  I know (or at least I HOPE) we'll still have some nicer weather and get to enjoy fall a bit longer.  This tease of a snow just reminds us of all the things we still need to get in order before the big freeze of winter hits.  I need to put away the lawn furniture and hopefully get to finish cleaning up the rest of the leaves on the ground.  AND my shiitake mushrooms and oyster mushrooms are just starting to fruit and I really want a few more harvest off them if possible.

Also, I have a new to me greenhouse that needs to be set in place and sealed up so I can use it next spring.

Once I get those few projects under tow ... let it snow! Let it snow! Let it snow!

Until next time ...
So it goes in my neck of the woods.


  1. Oh Mel, It's too early for snow. I am so not ready for it. I would not care if we had a winter without it. LOL. That was so sweet of your husband. Stay warm. xoxo,Susie

  2. Oh- I am SO NOT READY for snow yet this year, Mel. Please keep it up there as long as you can! xo Diana

  3. wwwww, 'at Slim is one nice guy!
    SNOW! wrong time of the year, send it back.

    And of course you are a wonder getting up at 4:30 to see the sweetee off to work. I don't think I could be that dedicated. (smile)

    Love ya, From Florida

  4. Snow? Keep it there please. Ya, it's early...but after a snow like this in the early Fall season, you usually have a spectacular "Indian Summer" least that's how I remember it.

  5. Nice of your hubby to make sure you could watch TV. Bet the sleeping was good with that cold snow on the ground.

  6. SNOW are you kidding me. Too early for all that white stuff.
