The First Snow: 2008

At 5:12pm, snow started falling outside my window for the first time this year. Yes I know that's exactly when it started, because I've been waiting for it to start all day.

Oddly enough, as you can read HERE, October 28 was the first day of snow in Ottawa last year too! What a fun coincidence! Although we're supposed to get up to 30cm by morning, whereas last year was just a little snowfall.

Talking to Mando, she said that she hopes its all snowy and freezing on Halloween so that the children need to wear their snowsuits over their costumes. That hasn't been the case the past several years, but we had to live through that, so the kids of today should too! Bring on winter!

It was so warm here on Halloween that most kids didn't even need jackets. It was weird. I remember more than a few Halloweens where we had a LOT of snow on the ground.
