A Halloween Snow Turns Prince George’s Into Narnia

Just as in Narnia, the snow does not know its proper season.

A curse making it “always winter but never Christmas,” is how C.S. Lewis explains Narnia's unseasonable weather in The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe.

A sentiment Prince George’s County and much of the area can relate to today, where snow has fallen on Halloween weekend.

It may very well turn into a curse, as the ice and unseasonable snow hit trees still bearing their seasonable leaves, increasing their weight and the possibility of broken limbs, downed trees and power outages.

The National Weather Service has extended a freeze warning for Prince George's County to 9 a.m. Sunday EDT, predicting temperatures to be in the low 30s in urban areas.

Love the photo, but like your kitty, I feel rather skeptical about the snow in October!

She's not my kitty, but she's a dear. Brrrr... is it spring yet?

Well Morgan you will get your wish, just maybe not this weekend. Please!

I am assuming that the author/photographer are one and the same and that baby is yours. Take care and beware - of P>G>Co. Animal Control! They took mine for being outside and not on a leash (insame) snatched right out of my yard while my back was turned and they were distracting me. Take care, it is a beautiful and I know cherished little one.

Hi Lesley. She's not my baby, but she is beautiful. I hope you got your little one back.
