First Snow in the Wasatch

Well, for us in our area, it's the first snow of the season.

As we drove home from the Susanna doctor last night, it was gently raining.  The sky was also filled with all sorts of horizontal lines of lightening.  It was quite impressive, and we were glad we had to be out which allowed us to experience it!

It rained all night, or so I thought.  After opening the blinds in the living room, and staring at the rain, it seemed to me that some of the "rain" was more solid and actually white.  Then it clicked that our neighbor's roof was snow covered, so I opened the front door to see what was happening weather-wise.

Nada.  Nothing at all to see but white.  Shortly before we left to pick up a few groceries this morning, the fog lifted.  The mountains were amazingly beautiful in their first snow.  I ran in shrieking like I had never seen snow before, and begged Scott to make a detour to the Botanical Gardens to shoot.  He agreed, and as we drove there, he looked to his right and exclaimed in awe, too!  He had just realized what I had seen and why we were heading another .7 miles north!

I'll let the pictures do the rest of the talking and sharing.
