    Well, this is what I woke up to this morning,... 4" on the ground & still snowing. Yesterday morning it was clear & +14° F, so I knew this could happen. Weather forecast here for today says 3"-7" for today, but reports say that some areas in the mountains got 2 feet already! :D:bluebounc:D

    Well, it quit snowing now for the time being,... looks like we have about 4½" on the ground,.. a friend just called & said he had between 6-8" about 20 miles north of me. The undercarriage of my little car just barely drags the snow on my driveway, but it's right at 32° now at 10am, so it will start to melt here shortly,... but it was cool to go from fall to winter overnight,... :redbounce:salute:

    I would say that we get our first snow of the year in September about 50% of the time, but usually it's not dry & fluffy like this one,... wet & slushy is the norm, which is what this will turn into in a day or two as well. But all the small ponds, etc have frozen over now, and they may stay that way, or they could thaw out for a short period again, but by Halloween, even the biggest lakes around here are safe to go skating on, etc.

    I drove out to the mailbox on the highway, and a DOT plow truck was coming by. The road is already slushy,.. too much heat still in the roadbed, but this will sure help suck that out,...

    You kidding me? I would have been out there with the four wheeler plowing it into a pile, spreading it back out, then plowing it up again. Till I got cold, or the snow melted what ever came first lol. But yeah, you suck I really want snow. Well I guess i can look forward to the Snowplowing 2008-2009 CONTRACTS starting Nov 1st. Hope it don't snow in Nov. haha Well, its coming soon guys!
