A Halloween Snowstorm
Wow. The past few days have been crazy and extraordinary. We had a snowstorm, in October! I knew we were going to get some flakes, but I was not prepared for a full day of falling snow. Neither were the trees because many of them still had their leaves on! Leaves and snow do not make for a good combination and we had lots of downed limbs and trees. Thus, we lost our power for 24 hours (we are lucky that was all it was, lots are still without power) and had to make a bit of adventure for ourselves!
*Our great neighbors, who did not lose power, were gracious enough to have an impromptu dinner party and game night with us! It was super fun. We shouldn't wait until we have no power to do something like that.
*Saturday night was our scheduled pumpkin carving night, but we moved it to Sunday and then we moved it to my Mom's house! Going pumpkin picking in the snow was a first for me!
*This years scary pumpkins.
