Oh, the weather outside is frightful!

Yes, it’s the first snow day in Colorado!  Granted, we didn’t get any here at my house, but it’s been spotted all over the Springs and DH got some up at trucking school.  When I left school, it was raining and there was slush in the grass.  We’re supposed to get snow after midnight on these first couple of days and snow on Thursday for sure.

I remember my first snow day in North Carolina.  When it was predicted, I kept looking outside, waiting for it to happen.  I’m from California and I’m not used to “living” with snow.  Visiting, yes, living, no.  I don’t know if I’m prepared for this.  It really didn’t snow all that much out in North Carolina.  I know I’m in for a big change out here in Colorado.  I really don’t feel all that prepared.  Mittens, gloves, scarves, and hats are definitely on my Christmas list!

1/30/10 – Snowy home in NC!
2/13/10 – Snow on Myrtle Beach!

I’m a 31 year old Navy sister, Army wife - Air Force wife to a prior service Marine/Soldier, and an Air Force Reservist. I am a happy wife and mother. My husband switched branches and joined me in the Air Force Reserve. We look forward to a future of dual military service!

    Uh… as a native Michigander… mittens, hats and scarves should be on your list BEFORE Christmas. 😉

    True that! I need to scrape together some pennies and go buy some supplies! My fleece gloves with the hole in one finger just isn't going to cut it! [BTW, I learned the term "Michigander" from another milspouse when I was at Bragg. 🙂 ]

    If I get enough snow, I'll do my best, Sespi! I haven't seen any on the ground yet around my house. We'll see what Thursday brings.
