Our First Snow of the Year

by Janice

Last night we got our first taste of winter and Jackson fit in a quick snowball session before bedtime. Of course this morning it is already quickly disappearing, but it was fun while it lasted…


What is the weather like where you live? Any snow yet?

Cute pics. :) He certainly looks like he’s enjoying himself!

We had flurries on Thanksgiving, and big snowflakes coming down last night, but nothing that’s stuck to the ground. It’s pretty to watch fall, isn’t it?

I wish we got snow here in Southern California! We’re lucky if its not 80 degrees for Christmas! :)

oh how fun!!!

We’ve had up and down temps; the other day we did actually have a couple of spitting snowflakes. But we are in Tennessee… so that was probably all we will see for a long time!!

My son loved to see these snow pictures. He cant wait for snow. Here in NY its quite chilly. The sun was around this morning, but a strong wind came in with the rain this afternoon. I would say we are in the low 30′s.

yes, we got 4 inches! Spokane has been waiting, though. Usually we have snow starting around Halloween. Tyler loved playing in this morning.

No snow yet here in Kentucky, although we did have a few flakes drifting down last week. Snow days, come on!! (Can you tell I’m a teacher??)


7 Jennifer November 27, 2007 at 6:56 pm

No snow here just warm weather or rain.


8 Tara Robertson November 27, 2007 at 7:04 pm

we definitely have snow here in northeast Saskatchewan, Canada. We’ve had snow for almost a month now. Today it is -18 Celsius which is a little below zero Fahrenheit.


9 Mikki November 27, 2007 at 7:12 pm

Oh my. Today I was putting up some Christmas decorations in shorts and a tank top. LOL.

Have fun!!

central Texan speaking: I like it just the way it is right now – 70s during the day, 40s at night. NO SNOW.


11 Dawn November 27, 2007 at 8:16 pm

It is snowing right now in Salt Lake City. I’m not sure how big of a storm it is supposed to be but it is sticking pretty good.


12 Sara November 27, 2007 at 8:23 pm

Cute pictures! He looks like he’s having a blast! Sure wish we could make some snow angels around here, but no such luck….EVER! We live in South Georgia and it is hot almost all year round’! I think I’ve only seen furries once here….Sniff, Sniff!


13 Susanne November 27, 2007 at 8:34 pm

Snowed all morning and it’s c-c-c-c-cold!


14 Erna November 27, 2007 at 9:07 pm

A good amount of snow! Woo hoo!


15 Sarah November 27, 2007 at 10:00 pm

Well I live in LA (or what I like to pretend is LA) but it’s actually lower Alabama. :-( We’re here because of the Military. It was in the 70′s today, windy and no sign of snow.

These photos make me sing all the songs that have the word “snow” in it:)


17 CPA Mom & Soccer Mom Angela November 27, 2007 at 10:35 pm

I wish! My kids ask me every day for snow. Alas, snow and southeast Virginia? Almost never.

I LOVE those pics of Jackson.


18 Fresh Girl November 27, 2007 at 10:36 pm

Oh, I’m not proud of this, but I’m jealous of a little boy. ;) I wish we had some snow! It was a beautiful day here in Memphis, but it was SUNNY… pretty cool though. I think the temperature got up to 59. We’re never going to get snow that way. Waaaaahh!


19 jen November 27, 2007 at 10:48 pm

cool (in more ways than one)

its hot and sunny here in little old New Zealand


20 Shera ~ A Frog In My Soup November 27, 2007 at 10:53 pm

Wow! For not living all that far from me you girls got a lot more snow! We got a snow shower last night as well which did end up with a small layer of flakes staying on the ground just long enough for the kiddos to get super excited. Alas, it was gone soon after they were in bed. Boy were they disappointed this morning ;0)


21 Ramie November 27, 2007 at 11:01 pm

LOVE the pics! So miss the snow! we’re in GA and it was mid 60′s here today with a cloud cover thats been looming for a few days. I hope we see sunshine tomorrow!

Thanks for sharing!


22 carrie-the gremlin wrangler November 27, 2007 at 11:31 pm

we had snow the day after Thanksgiving and it just didn’t see right. It melted, but it’s still been cold here in Kansas.


23 Pamela Kramer November 28, 2007 at 1:07 am

My son would love these photos! He loves the snow but we hardly ever see it here.


24 Twisted Cinderella November 28, 2007 at 1:14 am

What great pics! Looks like fun!


25 Tiff November 28, 2007 at 8:43 am

I wish it would snow here. It gets down to 30 at night but it’s in the mid 50′s during the day. GRRR. We haven’t had a good snow in 5 years!!


26 MyStarbucks November 28, 2007 at 9:10 am

We’re expecting some wintery weather this coming weekend. I hope it snows cuz I need to take a picture of my kids for our Christmas Card.


27 melody is slurping life November 28, 2007 at 10:43 am

Child + snow = bliss

Great photos!


28 Cascia Talbert November 28, 2007 at 1:14 pm

We got a little bit of snow earlier this morning but it did not stick. I live in South Central Wisconsin, USA.


29 HyperactiveLu November 28, 2007 at 1:20 pm

Oh what fun! I wish we could get snow in GA!


30 SJ November 28, 2007 at 1:27 pm

Love the photos of Jackson! He looks totally thrilled to be playing in the snow!

I’m in Colorado Springs, Colorado and yes we’ve had snow a few times already. The accumulation has not amounted to much, but it has snowed! And as a matter of fact, it’s snowing right now!


31 Sue November 28, 2007 at 3:42 pm

OH- I can’t wait for snow! I’m in SW Michigan and they are talking about us getting a storm this week!
I hope so.

Have fun,


32 Weeble November 28, 2007 at 4:27 pm

I live in Colorado and we have the bestest weather – for people like me who like snow AND sunshine ;) We had a bunch of snow fall this morning, and now the sun is shining beautifully!


33 Almost Vegetarian November 28, 2007 at 5:01 pm

We moved from a land with a ton of snow to a land with none. And I never miss it. Well, hardly ever. Only when I trip across a picture like this! But then I put on my t-shirt and go for a walk in the sun. It’s almost as good. Almost!



34 homemom3 November 28, 2007 at 5:02 pm

Oh this looks like fun, it’s cool here but won’t snow but I’m sure it’ll rain a lot.


35 Nichole November 29, 2007 at 12:38 am

How to have a Frugal Christmas! ITS UP!!!
So come on, inspire us!
Spread the word!
We are going to have something SPECIAL ALONG WITH THIS FRUGAL CHRISTMAS!!!


36 Charissa November 30, 2007 at 4:47 pm

Only had a few flurries here and there. It’s just really cold outside at the moment.


37 Linda Martin-Peoples December 1, 2007 at 8:25 am

Oh lucky you!!!

We’d just about give our eye-teeth for some snow around Christmastime.

But as Karla said earlier, we never know what we’ll get here in Tennessee…that’s what makes it so much fun to live here sometimes…never a dull moment!

I don’t know if this is strictly a Tennessee expression or not, but it’s pretty descriptive: “If you don’t like the weather here, stick around for a few days…it’ll change!” So true!

Still dreaming of a White Christmas!



38 McGee January 21, 2008 at 8:45 pm

I live in central Louisiana. We want so bad to visit Tennessee wheb there’s snow on the ground. I love to take pictures and would love to have some of my kids in the snow. When do you guys usually get snow in Tennessee?
