First Snowfall

Earlier this week, knowing that I would be too busy this weekend, I though to myself that I might only have to mow my lawn once more this season. With the light dusting of snow that we got yesterday I knew there was a chance I would need to clear the driveway this morning of an inch or two before we left for church. When I looked out this morning there were six inches of snow on the driveway (and a little more than that on the grass). It took more than a couple of minutes to clear the driveway and I realized that it’s possible that I won’t have to mow the lawn again.

The kids have been loving all the snow – they went out last night and again this afternoon to play in the snow. I don’t think we’ll ever wonder in the future if we will be having a white Christmas. We also have been given an early reminder of all the things that we need to be snow ready (e.g. a better coat and snow-pants for Isaac).

Before we moved in our neighbors invited us to a neighborhood party so they could get to know us. At that time, back in August, we were warned that we would need a snowblower up here – a shovel just would not cut it. If this is the first snowfall of the season, piling almost as much snow early in October as the middle of winter managed to accumulate in our Lehi neighborhood, I’m thinking we are going to need a bigger snowblower – by Thanksgiving.

    After living “up here” last winter (and I know that was an especially bad one) I would also concur that you need a snowblower. I’m amazed at the difference between our mom’s houses and where we “up here” I’m grateful to have moved to where we did, partially because of the snow. I’m always amazed at the difference a Boulevard makes. (each time you make it up to a new boulevard there’s a much greater amount of snow.)
