Gratitude for Beautiful Weather
I know it's all going to change, so I knew I better do a post about the weather early. I cannot remember a Fall quite like this one. It has been FABULOUS.
I love living where we have 4 definite seasons. We all laugh about our summers here because they don't last very long, but frankly I can do without the mosquitoes, so the cooler Fall weather is fine to me. And this Fall WOW. When I wrote to Elder Robison yesterday I was telling him how our temperatures were warmer than his ; ) Each morning I get up I grab my iPod and check the weather in the cities where all of my children live--Idaho; Texas; California; Nevada; Indiana; and Utah. Yesterday our high was about 75--yes, 75. I couldn't believe it. By the end of the month it will be about 30 degrees cooler ; )
I know what's coming. Winters here are cold, and I mean cold. I laugh whenever I see this pic--the year Neal brought Macy to Winnipeg so we could meet her, and we all went to ride the little train. It was cold, but she was such a trooper. (That's when we knew we loved her ; )My goodness, look at my little Elder--he looks so tiny.
I guess, by the time I finish these gratitude posts in the middle of November we'll be facing fairly cool temps. That's when I'll have to remember this post and the beautiful year it has been.
