    OH My God!
    We have a forcast for SNOW SHOWERS in Akron Ohio for Thursday 10 / 12 / 06 !
    Could winter be rearing it's pretty head already?
    Are the night mares of " is my plow ready " coming true?
    I just got back from a cruise and it's starting already?

    They where forcasting snow showers up here in North Dakota for tus night and into wed., but now I just herd we could get up to an inch tonight! As exciting as that sounds, im not to sure about it, casue where in the middle of beet harvest and that could make things interesting tonight. Semi's dont like rain/snow mix in the field.

    It will not amount to much but it seems to be a good sign of winter to come.
    Watch us get more snow in Oct then we got all last season.

    No frost here yet. Sounds like it will freeze tonight. All the irrigation guys were out winterizing today. Seemed like everyone will pulling an aircompressor around.

    Talking about fluries mixed with rain here tomorrow. Nothing to get excited about.

    We're supposed to get it here Thursday too, I love it when this happens, almost always this "tickler snow" doesn't amount to anything more than getting the customers off their butts and signing their contracts...my phone will be ringing steady in the next 24 hrs...Provided the weather guesser is on the ball.

    We had scattered snow showers on and off all day today. Just earlier tonight on my way home it was coming down really fast but only lasted for about 15 min. or so. Ground temp is still to warm so none of it was hanging around. I almost went into panic mode for a second going, "Holly Sh*T!!, I'm gonna have to plow tonight, my trucks not even rigged yet!" Not to much longer I'll be saying this for real, but I'll be ready!
