YES, THAT'S SNOW

Snow, outside our window
NO, it is not going away.

High school, across the street
We could have as much as 15 centimeters (6 inches) come down on us tonight and tomorrow.


Snow gathering on our balcony

So, Merry Christmas, everyone!

Er, um, wait; it's October 22, not December 22. I haven't even started hibernation!

Silly old Bear.

Seriously Bear, I've already been in the mood to decorate for Christmas. This isn't helping that urge!! Bundle up!! Love Di ♥

Chatty Crone said...

Oh my goodness that is SNOW!!! I can't believe it. It is 80 degrees here and sunny!

potsoc said...

I know you are most generous, Bear, but, please, keep that in Sakatchewan for now.

® Diana: Rushing the season a bit, Diana? We haven't even finished All Hallows Eve and All Saints Day yet.

® Chatty Crone: You have my condolences on the 80° weather. All the more reason you should welcome a brief trip to the land of snow.

® potsoc: I'll do what I can to keep the snow here for another week or two, Paul. But I can't make any promises. Bears have no control over these kinds of things.

Oh how exciting. I just love the first snow!

Janie Junebug said...

Snow? Such strange stuff. I think that in Florida we will see none. Is it normal for you to get snow during autumn?

Love,
Janie

Kristy said...

I actually like snow. I hope it comes our way.

I love seeing pictures of snow as long as it is not in my neighborhood.

That corgi :) said...

Wow!!! Looks neat though!! Reminds me of our Montana days!! Enjoy and be safe out there!

I love snow -- especially that first snowfall -- but I prefer if it waits until after Thanksgiving! In all the years I've lived here, we've only had one snowy spell! A far cry from New England, where I grew up...

Bear. I must admit to being jealous. I love snow. I love the cleanliness and the silence of it. And I am not even worried for you because I know bears stay very, very warm in their fur coats.

Just Be Real said...

Thank you for the smile..... brrrrrrr cold and snow do not mix well with me. Lovely pictures though. Blessings.

Apparently it is coming our way. We have frosts forecast for the weekend and our clocks go back. It is a depressing thought.

Cathy Olliffe-Webster said...

Oh gawd, I saw the weather forecast this morning for "out west" and it wasn't pretty. Batten down the hatches, Bear! Get out your flannels, cause it sure sounds like you're gonna need them!

ReformingGeek said...

Brrrrrr. Go into your cave, Bear!

BTW, that high school is pretty!

DJan said...

It does look awfully pretty, Bear. I am not ready for it myself, but I can sure enjoy YOURS. :-)

The Queen Bee said...

so not ready for snow in Baltimore. Keep it in your woods, please!!

Amanda said...

Looks like the kids in Saskatchewan will be wearing snowsuits over their Halloween costumes this year!

Inger said...

Send some my way, OK!

Frances said...

Far out Bear...we haven't even let loose of Daylight Savings Time, and you've already got snow on the ground.

Too strange...or perhaps I am the one who's been hibernating. Maybe this sort of early snow is normal for your part of Canada.

We've still got green leaves on our trees here in NYC and pumpkins still reaching ripeness in their patches, and roses are still abloom.

kj said...

Gaaaagh! That is my reaction! You've helped me to get my mind in new gear. My snow will come. Your photos are very nice, you and your camera

Rob, I will get you added to blogland lane. You're already there since nobody looks at the census map. You can post there, right? I hope so!

Stay warm mr furry one

Love
kj

Better is Possible said...

Looks so pretty. Feels like snow is on its way to the wet coast...but not likely. Feelings can be fickle.

susan said...

It's still too early for snow except for that which falls on the tops of mountains. You do live on one of those, don't you?

The Golden Eagle said...

Wow. It certainly looks like winter there!

Hilary said...

Wow.. that's too early for me. I probably shouldn't tell you that it was 21C here today. ;)

This little Cosmo likes the warmth!

About Last Weekend said...

Whoooah, that is so much snow! I can't believe that is just the beginning!

chicago foodie girl said...

Snow?! Yikes! What happened to all of the lovely fall weather?

We're having some crazy weather down here (last week included two days in the 50s-60s, two in the 80s and now we're in the 40s), but thankfully, there's no snow involved... yet.

Murr Brewster said...

I'm looking forward to snow again now that I don't have to go anywhere. We hardly ever get any, though. Whenever we do I go out and make a Snow Pootie.

Lins' lleisio said...

Noooo, too soon. We've had some lovely, bright and sunny autumn days. I'm not a fan of the cold or snow - though it makes for stunning scenery and beautiful pictures. I think I might try this hibernating lark too.

Anita said...

Nice architecture on that high school!

Snow huh? What's it going to be like when December "does" come around? :)

I'm currently waiting out the hurricane that hasn't hit hard yet. So far, just windy and wet.

Murr Brewster said...

I think the difference between an inch and a centimeter of snow is how wet it is. Right? Right?

Calvin said...

My,my. Does seem a bit early for the white stuff. Stay warm Bear.

farawayeyes said...

Hope the whole storm 'thing' doesn't get too serious for you. A little snow can be fun. I spent so much of my life living over a mile high, snow in October -- no big deal.

Rob-bear said...

HELLO, FRIENDS!

I have tried several times to reply to your kind notes, but the snow is messing up our communications here. Yes, it really does — especially when we get "freeze-thaw" weather, and the phone lines get wet.

"Due to technical conditions beyond our control, replies have been cancelled." At least for a while.
