    Yeah, i've been thinking it was my last mowing for weeks....
    I want about 2 more weeks before snow, but I'll take it when I can get it. Looks like I'll get what I want though.

    Been raining here for 3 days now. We've got snow in the forecast for next week but I'd bet money that will change. :nod:
  5. Yep,
    Always does. It can't snow yet, I still have to figure out my plow lights and make brackets and wire up my Salter............. :cry:

    Give me a week :waving:
    Then we can :drinkup:

    Well not to throw salt on your wounds but most of the predctions that i have seen(not that they are ever right) seem to trend towards the west being warmer and the east coast being cooler for the winter.

    Mybe this will cheer you up


    Deep Freeze On The Way

    A sharp change to colder weather will occur through the intermountain west and Great Plains this weekend. The reason for the turn to colder is a major shift in the jet stream. Most of this week the flow has been west to east across Canada. This weekend, the jet stream will plunge southward, and polar air will come with it. Daytime temperatures will get no higher than the 20s and 30s over an extensive area, and overnight lows will be dipping into the teens and single digits.

    We usually don't get any snow till Thanksgiving or later and then its just teasers till closer to Christmas. A few years back it was over 60 the day before Christmas. I remember because we had just returned from Florida where it was light jacket weather the whole trip. I was finally able to walk to the store in a T-shirt...when I got back home to IL.
    I've got some outside maintenance to do on the house, so I don't mind if it waits till mid December, then let it fall.

    Farmers Almanac

    According to the Farmers Almanac, we will see some substantial snowfall on or around the 19th of December. That's about the soonest.
