If this is any indication of the winter......

.....we are going to have
The sun should be up soon, somewhere, so I snapped a couple quick pics out the back window of the "4-8" inches we were supposed to get last night. My guess is we got that 4-8 inches sometime around 2:00 AM, because at 5:30 this morning I was tromping through 12 inches of powder, no drifting, just a solid thick blanket everywhere. You can see how heavy it's still coming down in the pic with the flash. My Jeep was void of snow yesterday, as I ran into town for gasoline for the ATV and snowblower, and some chili making groceries. They're calling for another 4-8 today AND tomorrow. Lake Effect snow warnings until 4:00 PM Saturday.
What's that country song, It's 5:00 Somewhere... how about, It's Summer Somewhere

I'm so happy for you to have all that snow. You can have all of our allotment for the winter too.

It's snowing in Aston, PA, too! Just got off the phone with Lou, who is frantically searching for the brush/scraper for his car. That made me realize I have no idea where mine is, either

We will get our first snow of the season this Monday. A little late considering how far north I am. I remember taking the kids trick or treating in 4 inches of snow.

I'm still clearing out here. I lied, it did drift. It's up to my knees in spots. We never get a snow that sticks this early. This is our third snowfall so far. The first one melted off. I the second was still on the ground when we got this.... I don't think this one is going to melt anytime soon.

It's supposed to be in the 80's here today (So.Cal) I feel as if we"ve been in continual summer and am tired of it _ last weekend the fires and I still have ash everywhere, today I'm going to a holiday boutique, hard to get in the mood.

pacanis-wish that was all we had, Sunday-Monday we got about 2 feet. I just had to push hubby out of the driveway, because he didn't plow. If I get stuck I won't be happy. Here are a couple pics of our snow and it's still coming down pretty good. Our lake effect warning is until 6:00pm tonight.
And I'm suppose to bury my dog tomarrow, I have to get to the bottom of the snow first!!!!

oh... YUCK!! It's pretty but what a pain in the butt. Snow like that would close our whole city down for a month. There's no way we could handle it.
