this is one of the earliest snows in history. at least measureable, it was about 5 inches on our garbage can.:::

at least DH got the furnace fixed yesterday

Wow!! We're lucky to get snow once a year, if that. I am hating my weather for the opposite reason - it's still going to be 75°F tomorrow and around 80°F on Wednesday.

where are you?? I am hating our weather too, but like Patchfire, for the opposite reason. A bunch of our friends were evacuated this morning because of a wildfire in the canyon behind the campus.

The snow is lovely! But I hear your pain, I'm not ready for winter yet, either!

I agree!!! I LOVE winter though. Comfort food, warm clothes. And the thought of being snugly warm inside with my new baby gets me all excited.

But, I am sorry you are not happy with it. Like other pps, where do you live? We had snow in the mountains the other day but, not here. Actually, we are having some very nice warm autumn days.

Oh my, I would do just about anything for a genuinely chilly day! The forecast highs for here for the next few days are in the upper 70's! Ugh.

We had 84 here in Chicago yesterday, crazy! I like snow before the holidays, but then I'm done with it and it becomes depressing to be so cold.
