The snow measured 5.5 inches.

Yes, they've dubbed it "Snowtember" with this unusual storm.  I saw on the news that in Riverton we've not had snow in September since the year 2000.  A good heavy snow is welcomed moisture, but with the leaves still on the trees, it usually means we will lose tree limbs. 

A lot of destruction of this sort was reported, such as big limbs coming down on vehicles and rooftops.  So, we've got a lot of clean-up happening in every neighborhood.

As the temps got warmer, more branches snapped.

To add to the "excitement," we also lost electrical power.  Mine was out from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.  I was SO THANKFUL when it came back on. 

Sunny skies are in the forecast for the next couple days...

Makes you wonder what kind of winter we're going to have.


  1. Yes, I wonder about the Winter to come, too.

  2. YOu and Nancy..IM SO SORRY. Im not ready for snow although I love the stuff in December ...
    here's to long lived limbs

  3. Crazy! I remember being on a plane in Denver one September and being de-iced. It's too early for winter!!!!

  4. Well, after a crazy summer for me, I'm guessing a crazy winter for you. The snow on the trees looks so beautiful. It's a shame it is so destructive.

  5. Wow! That is so crazy! I had no idea that was going on. It's been so hot in LA for the most part, I'm just hoping for some fall. The poor trees!

  6. I wonder about winter too, Nancy! Here in the PNW we are having a big windstorm this weekend. My power flickered on and off three times yesterday, but thankfully never stayed off. Hoping I get through tonight! Things are supposed to die down starting tomorrow. We went from 80 degrees to 60 in about a week around here.
