October Snow

Postby Ian on Sun Oct 22, 2006 12:14 am

We had the first real snowfall of the season today. Here in Wisconsin, we normally we don't see anything like this until mid to late November. Even crazier, the local ski hill had one run open last week. wtf!?

We've got about 20° C here too- but that's not normal. Califormia has always had a climate that's warm in most periods of the year. :wink:

I'm Southeast of Ian and we got our 1st snowfall on Oct 12th. That was the same storm that nailed Niagara Falls & New York state.

I've already bought new winter boots. Now its time to tune up the snowblower.

Your son must be having a blast already!

LOL, we almost bought one about ten years ago. Glad we didn't, we haven't seen a deep snow in this area since the blizzard of 1996 dumped about 30 inches. That storm shut the state down for about two weeks. Http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Blizzard_of_1996

I remember paying someone to dig out the 700 feet of driveway from a previous snow which was left piled on the edges of the drive. Then the blizzard passed through the area and we had chest high deep snow on the drive because of the drifting. Still kicking myself in the butt over that little fiasco. Overall it cost about $700 dollars for snow removal that year.

What was really nice is seeing everyone pull together to help out the elderly and emergency services workers.

This time of year we get large temperature swings of forty to fifty degrees. Today started out just above freezing and should top out close to seventy. Today's big chore will be to go cut the lawns :wink:

Damn, they're gonna be open again this weekend. Too bad I'll be in Milwaukee seeing Carlos Mencias.

I took my son out there yesterday. He was more impressed with the chair lift than the snow.
