It is Snowing!

Yes, you read right! As I type, you can see little flakes of snow floating to the ground. The Penman's call them flurries, I think. Whatever you call it-- it is cold! How exciting!

I thought it was only a few days since you were wearing singlet tops and melting from the heat. What an unusual place!

We've had severe thunderstorms this summer with substantial hail here in CT but NEVER snow. In all your posts, you were saying how hot it is and now you have a dusting of snow. With living in CA, you and Julia probably were very excited.

My daughter lives in Moscow and they don't get their first snow usually until mid to late Oct. and it doesn't last.

The countdown is nearing the end for when Alex can leave the orphanage with you and Julia.

How is John holding out on the homefront???????

I am in houston texas and it is extremely hot but today we have rain. You are a great blogger, please continue to describe ukraine and the people. I truly admire you for the woman you are and this blogs inspires many including me to live outside the box. Have you ever thought of being in reality tv like those TLC shows? It would be a great idea to replace Jon & Kate since they are all out of place now. How would you call your show if you had one?

I guess you can't blog now that your friends left to go home with their daughters. Miss hearing about your day.

Something like Michigan. I actually had the car heater on a couple of weeks ago. Meanwhile, in Korea, Craig is dying of heat and humidity.... Weird weather.

Yep, they are called flurries; which was caused by the cold front that came in. So the air around us wasn't all that cold but far above us was.
