This past week we experienced our first big snowfall. We had a light dusting last Saturday and then a couple inches of snow on Monday. It was received with mixed reviews, of course. Most people weren't thrilled with how early it is (the average first measurable snowfall here is usually mid-November). Of course, it didn't last too long--by the afternoon, much of it was melted. The boys loved it, of course. The first snowman was quickly built. It was a bit odd to see all that snow on the trees with leaves sill on them. Hopefully we'll get a bit of fall yet, as the boys want to jump into some leaf piles.
