    I don't think we have anyone from Calgary on plowsite yet but I saw in the news that they had between 10 and 20 cm (5 - 10 in.) and are expected to get another ten by tomorrow. Then the temp goes back to 20C (70 F). I don't know if there was any sticking (it didn't look like it), but it was nice to see a white (glofing) green.

    Yah we got snow

    Hey Guys,

    Yah its snowing here, its 9:00 and is minus 2. The snow has been falling all day and barley has let up. The only thing that sucks is its sticking to grass and decks. But not sidewalks or roads. The funny thing is that on thursday it suppose to be 18 degrees.

    Temperature today was around 80 degrees. No way the snow could stick to the ground. It would just melt right away. Also we still have full leaves on the trees, and it would be a disaster if we get a heavy snowfall that really early. Over a decade ago we had a big October snowstorm. It was a catastrophe. Downed trees, power lines, etc. No way we could possible plow snow with roads blocked. So I hope we would not be getting snow that early. It just would cause problems for everyone.

    When November comes, let bring it on! :D

    I agree, let the snow hold off for awhile. I'm getting a new lawn put in next week. Landscaped all around, new seed etc. The earliest I've plowed was Oct 28, '00.
