Well, It *Is* November.

Somehow, I wasn’t prepared for the snow on the ground here this morning. The weather has been getting colder, the weather report said there was a possibility of snow, Bob McCown instant messaged me to say the snow was falling to the north. My boss said the snow was coming as he left the office.

Yet, somehow, I was not ready to see a pile of snow on my driveway, complete with the snow plow leavings.

So, I guess it’s winter now.

You got enough snow to warrant plows? Up here in the Great White North (tm) we got a dusting, but it is sunny today so most of has already melted.

About four or five inches total here. It is starting to melt fast now in the sunshine.

I played basketball in my shorts yesterday. :) Sorry. Couldn't help myself. I'm thousands of miles from friends and family. I have to take what I can get.

Shovelling wasn't too bad, just unexpected. About 4 inches, according to NWS.

Looking at the map, this storm was somewhat along the coast, or at least it radiated from the coast.

But the snow will be gone in a couple of days.

Bri - thanks for the sartorial report. I ate breakfast in my undies. ;-D Love ya.

Oh, Bri, we miss you. It goes both ways. My kids went sledding on our back yard dirt pile with their little friends and made a tiny snowman. Then they came in and had hot chocolate and played in front of a roaring fire. And I went running in my shorts the other day. Nice and fast because the air is cold the way I like it. I couldn't last five minutes in S.D.!

James, It's going to be 50 all week. There was no need to shovel it'll all be goine by Wed. I just drove over our 5 inches or so. The driveway is mostly clear already.

Brian- I'll take the snow and cold thanks. Yesterday we baked a turkey lit a fire and played boardgames all day! Woo hoo!

Damn, that turkey was good. Nothing beats turkey on a cold crips fall day. And then there was the apple crisp, the fire, and the board game.

I love this time of year!

I'm sad that I didnt' get to rake the leaves out of our walkway before the snow, but NOAA.gov says it'll be in the 50s all week, so I'm sure I'll be able to rake away on Saturday.

Apple crisp? Possibility for Saturday?

We were having playdate guests, and I wanted to give the folks a place to park. Turns out they owned a Jeep, so they wouldn't have been fazed by a little snow. I needed the exercise anyhow.

I don't even _like_ apple crips, and I liked this one. That's how good it was.

I'm sure The Man would be happy to oblige. His is currently in a meeting, but will get back to you soon, I'm sure.

Apple crisp is certainly doable (and easy!). Plenty of orchards with local apples still open!

Don't like apple crips? How about apple bloods? ;-)

I mostly miss the people. You'd actually be fine out here Maggie. The mornings and evenings are plenty cool for a run.

Of course, I still laugh at people who tell me how cold it is.
