Whatever Weds. First Snow of the Season!


It snowed in the valley and mountains yesterday evening then it rained, then it rained and snowed at the same time. That was weird. What’s that phenomenon called when it does that? Big, fat chucky snowflakes coming down while it was raining. I’d never seen anything like it before.

I woke up hoping the sunrise would be pretty and there would be snow on the valley floor, alas no snow on the valley floor and barely any on the lower PineNut Mountains, but the Carson Range and Eastern Sierras are gorgeous this morning.

Morning after the first snow.

It was 28 degrees F when I stepped outside to make this image, and there’s a better than 50% chance of more snow this morning. I am hoping we get a little more today but, not tonight. He-Man and I have been meeting friends off and on for over a month on Weds. nights to play trivia at a local grill/bar. We’re having a lot of fun playing. We came in 4th on our first night of playing and have made it to the leader board every time since but we’ve not yet made it to the top 3. We’re team “The Silver Foxes”.

I need to scoot and look for the clues to tonight’s questions. I hope your week is going well, and you all have a lovely Wednesday!

  1. One website says this: “Sleet is probably the most perplexing kind of precipitation to fall. Many people use the term sleet when referring to the mix of rain and snow that you sometimes see when a line of warm and cold air masses meet. Both the British and the Canadians refer to these rain-snow mixes as sleet, but the unofficial term for this wintery mix is ‘snain.’ Americans define sleet as ice pellets. ”

    1. Thank you, Judy! There’s a bit more snow this morning. It’s beginning to look magical outside.

      We came in 5th this week. No prizes for us but still I’ve never had so much fun while losing. 🤣

    1. I know right! I haven’t heard any of the old timers talking about this being super early but, I have a friend who has a friend tell her we’re in for a hard winter. If so I hope that means lots of snow and rain to help us get out of the drought.
      I wonder what the almanac says? 😀🙃

  2. That’s a beautiful photo. I hope you get a little more. I’m not ready for snow here, but I wouldn’t mind you having some to share. Good luck at trivia.

  3. Lovely picture Deborah! We are far from snow over here. It still is half summer-half autumn. But nodoby knows what is to come of course. I wish you a pleasant play tonight and of course lot’s of succes!
