It's our 1st snowfall of the year! A gentle lake-effect snow,dusting the ground and treetops! Anyone else have snow today?

We got a couple of inches yesterday. And it was 4 degrees this morning. I think Winter is on the way.

We got some snow last night, but I'm not that far from you so we probably got the same storm.

I wish we would get some snow, but with low of 34įF and 74˚F high I donít think thatís going to happen.

We probably won't get any snow until at least December and even that won't last more than a few days usually, or melt the same day. We get maybe three snowfalls a year.

There have been years where we get a few feet of snow but it's super rare. We're at sea level with very moderate yearly temperatures and usually get rain instead. We aren't far from the mountains though so we can go see snow any time if we really wanted to, and inland and higher up north there's generally a lot more snow.

Along with the dogs Tara and Coco.

I'm sooo jealous. After 12 years in upstate NY (north of Albany), I really miss the snow (though not the subzero temps) here. They got more snow here than we did in upstate NY the winter before I moved. In the two winters I've been here, it's snowed twice: once on Christmas Eve, but I wasn't here, and once on the 2nd to last day of final exams. 4 or 5 inches and all exams were canceled, because they're just not set up for snow removal here. It took nearly 48 hours for the city to plow my street. And the plow wasn't actually a plow. It was a utility truck (water company, I think) with a plow attachment on the front - like landscapers' trucks when they do plowing in the winter instead of landscaping. That made me laugh.

We've had snow for a couple weeks now. It's awful to drive in but so pretty on the trees and fields. The moon reflecting on the crisp layer of snow just make me so happy lol.

Stay warm folks, winter is definitely coming and/or here already!

After last year's very mild and almost snow free winter, we're expecting to pay big time this year. Had a couple inches a few weeks ago, then it warmed up again. Expecting something this week, but it looks fairly minor. Need to go put out the driveway snow stakes today.

Yeah, it was weird to hear the plows last night. At first I had to stop and think what that noise was, because even though I live in a snow belt, last winter we didn't have any snow.

We do get snow up in the mountains in January and I do have to work in it.

I donít mind putting on the snow shoes to get around, but I hate having to dig my way into the buildings where the snow can be 6ft high at times.
