    Well boys & girls, the first snow of the season has arrived! Altho it's not much (maybe ½" or so), it's enough to turn the ground white. And we are currently under a winter weather snow advisory, with 1-3" more today, 4-8" more tonight, and 2" more tomorrow. If it all happens to the max (which it won't), that's a total of 13" in the next 24-36 hours! But even for around here,... it's still a little too early,... the ground isn't froze enough yet for anything to stick/stay,... and a foot of snow right now would make a terrible mess. but,.. it is pretty cool to see the first snow each year,.. :bluebounc:waving:

    We all hate you right now,lol Yeah you dont want a ton of snow on the ground at first, it acts like insulation and nothing freezes up under it.

    Well.. it's been snowing all day,... and not a slushy-rain either,... nice light, dry flakes slowly drifting down,... but there's still too much heat in the ground yet for things to stick for good. This looks like a huge storm,.. at least in it's compass, so a lot of areas up here should be seeing flurries, and at the higher elevations, some real snow depth. Waking up tomorrow is kinda gonna be like Christmas,... wondering if Santa came & left anything,... :D:bluebounc:waving:

    Well.. it's still snowing pretty hard yet as darkness starts to set in,... I had to make a short trip up the road this afternoon,.. and snapped a couple more shots of the snowy landscape, which went from autumn to winter overnight,....

    WHAT! No plows on the trucks yet and already snow covering the windshields? LOL.

    Around here people would act like that is a blizzard. You wouldn't be able to get within 500' of a grocery store...
