Well, they're only flurries, but they're BIG flurries!

It's snowing right now on the North Coast.
Lake effect snow, total white out!
It's actually quite beautiful looking out the window.
Glad I'm home.

Ski season opens this weekend. Earliest in 17 years.

We got about 6" between last night and today. :eek:

Lightened things up...

I talked to my daughter in Bryn Mawr Tuesday night. She said you hadn’t gotten any snow to that point. I hope this doesn’t interfere with her coming home to Ohio for Thanksgiving.

I’m at our house in the mountains of WV. It has been snowing since Saturday. Not too bad where I’m at, but the nearby ski area has gotten 31” of natural snow since last Saturday and will open early, this Saturday. We have a winter storm warning until tomorrow at 6 pm. I’m getting too old for winter.

Be careful Vince! Give it a day for everyone who's gonna crash, to crash without you involved.

Is this early? or normal?

Snowing here this morning. Couple or three inches on the grass. I rode my bike to work anyway, and the derailers froze up with slush. I guess that's why some folks switch to singles and fixies in the winter.

There's no normal anymore, hard to say if there ever was. But we here in the upper midwest have always had years with a ferocious snow storm, even a blizzard, in mid to late November while the Great Lakes are still warm.
