Snow in September!

We knew it snowed in the higher elevations around us on Saturday the 28th of September but we really couldn’t see the snow until Sunday morning. These were the views from our home. We did not get any snow on our property. This is very early for snow in our parts. The last time there was September snow in Spokane was in 1926. We are north of Spokane but they are at a higher elevation than us. We were all surprised to see the snow and the below average temperatures for this time of year.

We had two visitors who stayed a while last week.

Mama and baby or maybe toddler enjoyed our back acres for a good stretch of time. Mama kept a steady eye on our family room slider while the fawn enjoyed nibbling on the brush.

We’ve got a busy week ahead with building and visitors and a local Marcus Ciderfest on Saturday.

  2. High elevations are prone to early snow! It looks so beautiful. I heard parts of Montana had two feet og snow, so this must have been a far-reaching storm. We usually get our first snow in October here in Colorado, so it won’t be long until we have the same. Enjoy your busy week!

  3. Snow in the mountains looks pretty from a distance but harder when surrounded by it in winter conditions. I know you’ve had rain so I hope your busy week goes well and you can get things done as planned. Very true regarding the quote.

  4. Snow!! I’ll bet it was a pretty sight to see though, especially since it didn’t linger or cover your roads. (We here are still wilting with high temperatures and humidity! What a difference!)

    Love your visitors! So sweet to see mother and child. I hope they don’t do too much damage in your yard.

  5. Pretty snow covered mountains.
    We get deer visitors that stay quite a while by us too. You got some great pictures.
    Great quote!!!

  6. Wow, it really seems way too early for snow, even in the “wilds of Eastern Washington”….. I hope you get some more nice Autumn days before Winter settles in to stay for a few months. (Snow is pretty though …I will always wonder a little if I would have enjoyed Winter more if we had lived our lives where we started out …in Eastern Washington! At least the sun often shines on the snow there.).

  7. The snow on the mountains is pretty and very fun to have deer visiting you often! Quite the shop building that will be! Have a great week Ellen! Love, Pat

  8. It looks pretty up there in the mountains, but it is much too early for snow. I am glad that you shared it has happened before back in the 1920s. Hopefully, milder temps will return so that you can enjoy a true autumn.

  9. I can relate – we have had very cold temps and a dusting of snow – unusual for September. You’ll hear more about it in my next post. Sure is pretty up there on the mountains!
