Do you know how to tell it's the last day of Summer in the Rockies?

Do you know how to tell when it is the last day of Summer in the Rocky Mountains of Colorado?

Any guesses?

Okay, I'll give you a hint - it is white.

Okay, another hint - it is cold.

Last hint - if it comes down hard enough it is called a Blizzard.

But since it is the last day of Summer, we're getting thunder with it.

Go figure.

Global warming...yeah....right.

The first time we had a thunder snowstorm I was laughing.

They just don't have them in NJ.

We had a hard frost last night.


Split Rock Ranch said...

It is still snowing...real snow now, not just the corn snow stuff. The ground is covered. If this is any indication of what our winter is going to be like, I think we'd best order an extra cord or two of wood! We haven't had a hard frost yet - thank goodness because I still had my plants out on the deck - brought them in this morning - completely covered in snow.

*sigh* is right!

Karen said...

Oh my goodness! It is too early for that white stuff! Yucko.

Lin said...

Oh NO! Do NOT send it my way, okay??! I'm not ready for that just yet.

BeadedTail said...

Snow already? Wow! We're having near record highs here - it's even 90 degrees on the Oregon coast which is extremely unusual.

Wow Brenda snow!! Zack has been in Montana with 80 degree weather! Keep warm!

Your Daily Cute said...

Wow... I can't even imagine. I think it got up to 95 today in South Florida! ;)

I know it will come but wow, you are getting an awfully early start! So it will be 6 months long then? That's a bit much even for a winter lover like me!

Ann said...

I'm begging you to please keep that stuff there, I'm in no way ready to see snow

I prefer seeing snow on tv or any place other than where I live. Last couple years our winters have been pretty mild, didn't even need the snowblower.

Regina said...

Well Brenda...I bet you know that my lil man had to say about the snow...."Please tell Ms. Brenda to mail us some" LOL!! Hugs, Regi

Ohhh, we had a thunder snowstorm last winter (or was it early spring??) Anyway, I'm ready for more anytime! *wink*

Split Rock Ranch said...

Karen: You're absolutely right - it IS too early for this stuff!

Lin: No promises...although I'd love to send it somewhere else...anywhere else!

BT: Can you send some of that nice warm weather this direction?

Karen: Hard to believe that MT is having nicer and warmer weather than we are - go figure!

Daily Cute: Lucky you!!!

Karen @ WOS: We should have some nice Indian Summer in between now and November when winter really settles in. At least in between storms we usually have some nice sunny days that melt the snow just in time for the next storm. AZ is looking better every winter!

Ann: I'm not sure that begging will do you any good but I'll do my best.

Jude: Wishing you another non-snowblower winter!

Regi: I can send some but it will be a bit liquid by the time it gets there! :o)

Vickie: I'll see if I can send you some of our Thunder Snows!

Oh dear! And here I was complaining about the +30C degree weather we were having last week. And I'm in the middle of Canada - it's not supposed to be that warm here.
I have heard thunder once when it was snowing, but it's very rare here too.

I think they call it Thunder Snow!


Hot Rocks said...

OK...I can TOTALLY relate, being near the Rockies only slightly north of you! Wacky weather is the name of the game..although it is still very hot here right now. Those snow thunder storms are called "Thunder Flurries"! I kid you not!!
