OMG! It was about 80 degrees here today!

I think we made it to 40 since it felt kinda nice out earlier.

Beautiful here (Virginia) all day. Windows wide open. But the snow does look lovely.

Well, living in Alaska as yu do, what else would you expect at this time of year? ;-)

I am NOT ready for that white stuff! Good luck with it this winter! :D

Suppose to get us some snow above 9000ft here in CO. (Denver at 5280). Been cold enough to snow here a few times earlier. only 53 now and raining

I smell it coming. The winter chill has arrived and the white stuff will follow. If it's anything like last year, we're in for a long winter.

Have fun. :D

Not yet, hopefully it will be another month, we've got nasty dark and horrible rain though. It's 8.00 am and not really light yet. ugh.

Why? Is she threatening your manhood or something?

She sure isn't doing anything for women's rights......8>)

No snow here in central Pennsylvania, but it's cold enough to see your breath in the mornings.

Time to bring the plants in from the porch.

Our strawberries are blooming :D

I wish we would get snow here (TN), we haven't gotten any substantial snow (over an inch) in a long while.

It snowed here in New England this week as well, Killington VT recieved a dusting of snow and for them its even a bit early.

It was 91 here yesterday. I spent two weeks up in Wyoming/Montana and apparently took Texas with me, as it was bright, sunny and warm the whole time i was there. I was hoping for snow...

Frost here in Southern WI over the weekend, first I've seen, which is pretty late. I anticipate the first flakes will be seen within the next four weeks, but we're probably still 8 weeks away from measurable snowfall.
I'm just hoping we don't duplicate last Winter's 100 inches of white stuff. That was a leeeetle much.

Boo hoo hoo.... a whole 100 inches. In 2007/2008, those of us who live in the Ottawa area we had the pleasure of getting dusted to the tune of the (436.7 cm (171.9 inches, something that made the snowblower and ski-doo vendors quite happy.

LOL, busted!
Yep, we're weenies down here. 50 inches is a normal year, and 100 inches is a once-a century event. Go a few hundred miles north to Michigan's UP, however, and 200+ inches is not at all uncommon.

I love living in Canada. We average 10 inches/year.

So true, when I lived in the U.P. of Michigan we averaged around 245 inches a year. It gets too cold here in Alaska for much snow to fall other than in the mountains. I think last year we got maybe 24 inches total. I do miss those awesome snowstorms of the U.P.

I can vouch for the snow up in the U.P. of Michigan, I went to college up there for a few years. It started in October and ended in May. My wife ' . substr('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/31_F.gif', strrpos('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/31_F.gif', '/') + 1) . ' blackgriffin is from up there, they refer to the summer as 3 months of bad sledding. The least amount of snow we got while i was up there was 213 inches and they considered that a light year for snow lol.
