I'm Not Ready
Can you believe it's snowing outside?! SNOWING!!! I'm so not ready. We usually don't get our first snow until around Halloween. I don't even have my storm windows up yet...more due to my own laziness than anything. I knew I should have put them up last weekend. I'm such a dummy sometimes.

I finished Montana Sky and will post my thoughts on it when I get home.

    Snow??? And here I'm complaining because today is supposed to get up into the high 70's. I'd like colder weather, but I'm not quite ready for snow.

    BTW - I have an aunt and uncle who live in Townsend. We went camping in Livingston a few years ago and it was breathtaking. Beautiful state you have there!

    Yeesh. And we're having unseasonably warm temps here! Almost 80!!!

    Jen ~ I'm about 3 hours from Towsend. On an aside, I love to take the route that goes by there because there's an old abandoned schoolhouse there. It's two stories and every time I drive by I want to stop and look around. I probably would if it wasn't on private property and if I wasn't afraid of rattlesnakes.

    Zeek ~ 80?! Too hot for me. My perfect day is going to be between 45 and 50 degrees with a light breeze. Which is exactly what it was when I was too lazy to put my storm windows on. Luckily, the snow didn't stick and is done now (I hope).

    It's about 82 here right now, but I think it's supposed to get up to the high 80's. I love the heat...and HATE snow. LOL

    Zeek ~ Up here, depending which weather station you watch (or whose husband you listen to) it's either supposed to be either a rough winter for us or a very mild one. It only snowed maybe a total of 5 times last winter, which is probably why we had the hellish summer of fires this year.

    Holly ~ I'm just the opposite ~ I hate the heat. I'd love the snow if I didn't have to drive in it.

    I don't want it to snow everyday out here, but just once...just once, I'd like to see snow around these parts, but meh since I know it's not coming, I'll just have to visit my sister in Colorado to get my snow fix! =)

    It's supposed to snow here tomorrow. I'm somewhat excited. But remember, those first snows don't stick.

    Can't wait for your thoughts on Montana Sky-I really enjoyed it. It stood up to my reread test. LOL

    Dylan ~ When I lived in SoCal (I was a nanny), I remember it snowed 1/2 an inch one time. They closed down everything ~ the interstates, the schools ~ everything! I just had to laugh because 1/2 inch was small potatoes compared to what I was used.

    Ames ~ I loved Montana Sky ~ every single page. I'll post on it sometime tonight. I think it's done snowing for the time being ~ although the sky is still pretty gray. Here's a clue how oblivious I am to my surroundings ~ I didn't even realize it WAS snowing until I looked at the weatherpixie on my blog. Sheesh ~ I sit right next to a window.

    I like the cold. I like to look at snow, like to play in it for about an hour. To live in snow, oh hell no.

    LMAO!! That's how "observant" I am too. *g*

    Snow - *shudder* Way to early for that yet. And isn't Montana Sky one of the NR book they are making into a TV movie? Seems I read that somewhere.

    OMG! Devonna, I can't imagine what would happen here if it snowed. It would cause wide spread panic! lol It's funny, because even when it rains people freak out. And I think to myself, "y'all are idiots! It's only rain!" Sheesh! LOL

    I grew up in SoCal (Redondo Beach) and I remember it "snowing" once. It wasn't really snow. It was more like sleet. Yuck!

    Would you believe I've never read a Nora Roberts book? But get this. My husband has! lol He's quite a fan. I think he read and liked Montana Sky.

    Isabel ~ I love the snow, hate driving in it.

    Ames ~ Well at least I'm in good company.

    Kristie ~ Yes it is. I wanted to read it before I saw the movie.

    Holly ~ Exactly! The people I nannied for were used to the snow also. We all got a laugh at that one ~ although technically I get it. Snow isn't a common thing in SoCal, but when you're used towhat comes down being measured in feet, 1/2 inch was pretty comical to us.

    Jen ~ Sleet is big yuck. I hate it and it's horrible to drive in. Well, if you read a NR book ~ read this one. I need to go buy it now. So, is your hubby a big NR fan?

    Ho-kay, I haven't closed our pool yet because I'm in denial about the end of summer.

    Guess this is the wake up call to get my shit together. Either that or crank up the heater on my pool!

    Cindy ~ If you crank up the heat on your pool, how fast can you run from the house to get there? :-)
