Something happened last week.

It got dang cold!

My kids catch the bus at 7:15 each morning and they won't leave the house without there warm comforting jacket's. By the time they get home it's warmed up enough that they don't need it but in the mornings it cold, cold, cold.

Friday on my way home from work in St. George where it was hot, hot, hot I decided to go home over Cedar Mountain. I was in the switch backs (close to Cedar) when I thought it had started to rain. Then I quickly noticed all the white stuff sticking to the ground on the side of the road.

Holy Cow! I wish I had my camera. It wasn't raining but SNOWING!

This whole weekend has been COLD! At night it has dropped as low as 42 degrees. The high has been mid 70's. Being it's rained all weekend long we haven't had too many hours of those mid 70 temperatures. Looking at the forecast for the upcoming 10 days does NOT look good. We are in for some very COLD days. Were dropping down to 35 degrees and our highs will be in the low-mid 60's.

Can I say I am SOOOOOOOO NOT ready for the cold.

Last week I pulled out the kids winter p.j's.

This week it looks like I need to pull out the coats and all of our other winter clothes.
I am hoping this will not be our life for the next 7-8 months.

I am really hoping this cold front will move on pass us and in a week or two we can experience some fall weather. I don't like thinking we've gone from summer to winter already!

We've collected quite a bit of wood for our wood stove. Our back porch is covered and we've had to start stacking on the side of the porch now too. We've got a wood cutting project with our ward this coming saturday. We were going to take Kory's truck and just fill the back of it. Knowing that we'll be using our wood a little earlier then planned I think we'll be taking the trailor after all and stacking it good and tall! I'm ready to start a fire now.

If it makes you feel any better, it was 109 today, when I got in the car after work, at 4:00 in the afternoon.
