Snow in October

I came out of my bible study meeting tonight to see snow falling. Basingstoke does not normally have much snow and usually it doesn't happen until January.

It used to always snow Halloween where I live. It was like a given. A wet snow. Lately the falls have been really warm and the real snow has been coming later and later, but this fall has felt more like early winter, so I know we are due. The other corner of PA had 8" already. The lake keeps us (me) a little protected from that nonsense... for a while anyway.
