WHAT EVER HAPPENED TO FALL????
Cedar City seems to have two seasons: Summer and Winter. It's been pretty summery here up until this weekend. I mean, I do need a jacket in the morning, but not usually for my 5 pm bike ride home (or 6 pm, depending on when I get home). But Saturday--WOW. My teeth were chattering for the first time in a very long time. I usually bundle up and stay warm. Why not? I've got plenty of clothes. Well, what I was wearing was not quite warm enough.
Of course, it's Cedar City and the snow melted by afternoon. That doesn't mean that it is warm by any means. Nope. I'm sure even the double-blanketed tomatoes in our garden won't survive this night. I picked most everything on Saturday, but left two plants and tried to save them. I mean, it IS going to get warm and fuzzy again. Shoot! Our leaves hardly had a chance to turn colors down here in town. Snow with leaves on the trees is risky business. Good thing it was a LIGHT snow storm.
