We haven't gotten any snow here in Russell yet, but Monday they had the snowplows out removing slush on the roads in Star Lake, about 20 miles from here!

So, it won't be too much longer and we'll have snow here!    :snowball:

You can send all that white fluff stuff down this way, I'm tired of the warm/hot weather its gonna be in the mid 70's here tomorrow. I had the dew on the top of my car freeze last night when I left work at 11:00pm. Oddly enough my car said it was 40 at the time so the ground is still way to warm.

Our plows were out Monday Too!  But we were pushing storm debris off the roads.  We lost power Sunday night, got it back Wed afternoon.  Only lost a couple small trees.  I'm kinda glad it wasn't snow, only wind and rain, that 2in of rain would be a LOT of snow :-X

I just returned from Vernon, 25 miles away. That was fun. Heavy wet snow made the road slushy, drivers were either doing 40 or 70. ::) Power is off in town, probably due to trees downing lines or somebody took a pole out.

Left town for 4 days with hopes that the snow would be melted by the time I returned. Well no such luck, got more snow while I was gone and now its chilly, could get down into the teens the next few nights. Makes for a long winter when by Nov 6th you've already had something like 15 inches of white stuff :(

Sounds like we will get a little lake effect this weekend. Still waiting for the maple leaves to fall. After 10 inches of rain the last 7 days everything is mud again.

This is what it looked like. Some of the biggest flakes I have ever seen.
After they hit the ground it seemed that 1/2 of the flake would melt before
I could snap a picture of it.

Another 3" or so last night...

I'll have to look but that probably puts us over 20" of snow for the season.
