Let it Snow, Let is Snow, Let is Snow...


Yes, just as we were going in for a pampering preggo pedicure, the rain every-so-slightly turned a wee bit white...

by the time we came out an hour later... it was blizzard city!!

... it took an 1 1/2 hours to get home from what would normally have been a 20 minute drive... seriously, it's not like Rochester is any stranger to the white stuff... except for when it comes out-of-season, even for these seasoned veterans... there were so many cars off the road between the mall and home, and one happen to hit a power-line right by our block, which meant no power for us for about 3 hours.

The kids, however, didn't mind a bit (after being shocked time after time, as they realized that NONE of the light switches worked - and yes, they did try ALL of them, as well as the TV, video games, computer, etc)... they quickly dawned their snow apparel and headed outside to frolic in the most perfect snow-ball making snow fall we have ever had here in tundraland...

They started to make snowballs for snowmen, but then altered the plans a little and ended up making 'snow-seats' for themselves... which I have to admit, was pretty darn creative :).

... Did I mention it's not even HALLOWEEN yet??!!
No wonder this little one is staying put... she knows what is awaiting her once she breaks free from the perfect-temperature-controlled environment :)

Maybe Indian Summer will still return for Halloween? I see a cold wave is hitting Utah and Idaho for Halloween week, also.
Trick or treating will still be fun for kids...just colder.
