Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow....

It's snowing here this morning, accumulations possiby up to an inch.

Of course, up in Goodweeds neighborhood, they're saying it's possibly going to be 2 feet of snow!

Anybody else ready for winter?

John

i'm hoping for a cold, snowy winter so i can go out and play a lot. haven't skiied for 2 seasons now (1st year sick baby, 2nd year injured wife), so i'm dying to get out a rip a good run.

I've been working the past few days tidying up the garden. But tonight we have our first predicted frost, and will have frost the next several nights, so wintry weather is in Southern Ohio. I will have to gather the green peppers today, and throw bed clothes on assorted vegetable plants.

i just learned I am going to Minnesota in December, geeesh , think the snows will have hit by mid December?

Canadians....would you mind pulling that cold front back to your country? I'd really appreciate it. It's going to be 63 here tomorrow and that is ridiculous for Georgia in October.

Yikes! My mom's in the UP right now visiting her mom and I know she didn't pack for that kind of weather.

With a little one just starting to walk, I'm actually hoping for a mild winter. Usually I'm all for snow but this year I do not want to be trapped inside!!!
