It Snowed!

Here's a picture of the large flurries falling early yesterday morning. The strange part for me is that the trees still have their fall colored leaves on them when the snow started. Usually the deciduous trees would be bare when it snowed. It was quite a sight!

It cleared by 1 pm, but it was a sure sign that winter is around the corner!

OH WOW, it's different from where I am. I woke up to winter wonderland already. Still have inches of snow in my front and backyards, will take picture if it's not melting away already.

wonda said...

It snowed already in your place? Over here, the leaves are still green. My niece was a bit disappointed as she couldn't see the autumn colors.

Cynthia said...

Hi Mansi Desai,
Thanks for your kind words, and for dropping by! Will look in peaches soon. ;)

Hey C,
We had snow but it melted quickly. Yeah, heard in the news that you were more snow accumulation! Yay!

Hi Wonda,
We had some great fall colors here, and this was a nice early snow that didn't stick to the ground long.

Hi Cynthia,
Yes, and only for a day! :)

Hi Sandi,
Haha! Not let. Maybe next time. Curious to see your response on the tag. :)

Judy said...

Ah the tag...I think I have done this but it was 7 things (that was ages ago). I suppose I may be excused? :P

The snow at this time is a sign of global warming! Weather throughout the world is going haywire and kids of the future generation will be affected yet I can't understand why no one is trying to help.

People are not recycling like they should. Driving huge 4 WD on normal roads. Ooops, sounds like I am ranting. Hahaha.

Dee said...

You got a fun blog going here:)
Liked the picture of snow flurries...and all your recipes:) I am reading thor' them slowly!

Beau Lotus said...

Ahhhh snow!! Have been more than 12 years in Europe and can still manage to get depressed when I think of winter. Which reminds me that I have to start reserving our ski holidays...

Meanwhile, very mountain tortoise as it's my 1st time being tagged but I guess if it's just looking around my room or purse and describing what I have, I can still manage. Whew!

East Meets West Kitchen said...

Hi Judy,
I am all for recycling and absolutely agree with you on your rant. It would be nice if everyone react like you did.

Hi Dee,
Thanks for dropping by, and for your comment. Take you time reading, and let me know if there's any typos? ;)

Hi Beau Lotus,
You've been in Europe for 12 years, and still don't like snow? Awww! Come over here and I'll make you lots of winter goodies to take your mind off the snow! ;)
This tag/meme is fun, and I can't wait to read yours! :)

singairishgirl said...

Wow, lovely snowfall. I have never seen falling snow. :(

East Meets West Kitchen said...

Hi Singairishgirl,
Awww... hope you get to see, touch, play in snow soon! It's fun when it's snowing, especially looking at it from a window in a warm house. ;)
