And so it begins

Thursday, October 6, 2011

Walked out of class at 1:30 today and bam! The mountains are covered in snow. I ran home to grab my camera and take a photo, but the clouds and snow had already reached the valley. (I shot this an hour later during work, after the clouds moved on).

I'm a little ambivalent about the snow.  Granted this is sissy-snow that doesn't stick and melts on your coat. But snow nonetheless. It means more clothes to wear, less sunshine, and cold, wet feet.

But it can also mean Thanksgiving and Christmas. (And my family coming to visit!) The first snow also hints of snowmen and sledding. It leaves you with a taste of  hot chocolate and warm cuddles in the morning.

So this winter I am giving in. I am giving in to the blankets of snow that make this barren valley beautiful. But this year, I'm coming in prepared. I buying real warm socks, long-johns and not sacrificing warmth for style. We'll see how it goes. I'm a known winter-hater/fighter. So I'll keep you posted. As for now, I'm gonna get my sweaters out of storage!

P.S. Can you spot the Y on the mountain? It's camouflaged with the snow! Hint: Find the top of the power pole and then look slightly left. 


  1. finding the Y after it snows is my favorite game to play:) and it's totally possible to look cute and stay warm!

  2. It's beautiful! And your giving in plan sounds perfect...warm socks mmhmm. :) Xo, Katie
