    IT'S SNOWING!!!

    Here in Falcon, CO at 6,831 ft above sea level, I woke up to see it snowing!

    It started at a rain/sleet mix but slowly moved over to snowflakes.

    We are 3 weeks to a month early for this. I hope it's a sign of things to come.

    Here it is. All I had was my phone but if you look closely at the truck and lawn, you can make out a few flakes.

    It was 76* yesterday. I got out and mowed the lawn. I love the Colorado weather patterns.

    Well the plow never comes off that truck. It is dedicated for snow removal. I have had it here at the house because I am going through it getting it ready for the season.

    But you are right, I used to put the plows on the night before a big storm, but everytime I did the storm went around us.

    Looks like I need to get the camera and take some pics of real snow. I am looking at 4-5 inches of heavy wet stuff in my driveway now and it's still coming down. If it hits 6" I'm plowing. :)

    First stop the 3 peoplethat still owe me $ from last year to plow them in!!!!!!

    I was wondering how much you guys in the mountains were going to pick up. The forecast calls for an inch of accumulation for us on Tuesday. What do you expect up there?

    I never know what to expect based on the Denver reports. I follow a couple of weather geeks on pinecam a local website up here. They get it right about 90% of the time which is 2x better than the Denver weather folks.

    Wow, as much as that looks good. I am not ready for it. I still have alot of money hanging off the trees and I don't want to have 2 leaf seasons next year that is for sure.

    Do we like rubbing it in? Absolutely! I can usually count on the first real event to be around Halloween. Last year at Halloween in was 60*+ outside. I knew we were screwed. I did 31% of my average last year. I ate my fill of Ramen Noodles, believe me.

    I'm hoping this early snow is a sign of things to come. I really need to make up for last year.

    I have one more landscape install, 300 ft of cedar privacy fence and 60 ft of retaining wall to build. I really dont need the snow until the middle of October but it wouldnt hurt my feelings if it came early.

    Sounds like another round of snow for tonight. I ended up with about 10 inches of snow.
