Got snow? 10-11

Apparently it's time to start watching the snow. Since the first blizzard of the season is now pelting the midwest and further East it won't be too soon to start this thread for this winter. Let us know what the weather is like where you live and take pictures,lots of pictures,so we can see why your not out running your boats.
It's 88 here and heading for 90 in a couple of hours. The snowbirds are starting to arrive so maybe out economy will improve for the next few months. Lord knows we can use the business. Pete

Oh the happy snow your talking about. Saw a guy in a bar one time. Pulled out his smokes and out came a baggy of the white stuff and spilled all over the bar. He never missed a beat and plucked a straw out of the holder and snorted the whole thing right there. Ten minutes later off he went to jail in the back of a cruiser.
Same guy borrowed a friends van,went to the county sheriffs evidence barn,removed a metal panel off the outside and loaded the van with bales of pot. He then went home to bed and about an hour later off he went in the paddy wagon again. Lots of guts but no brains. He now runs a pot store out in California. The fox guarding the henhouse. Ha! Pete

We haven't seen any snow in SE Wisconsin yet, but they are calling for a chance of snow showers this evening with a low of 36. The weather now is about 52 degrees and extreamly windy...last report winds were gusting close to 50 mph. We have been under a high wind warning since yesterday morning and is set to expire this evening at 7:00. The peak wind gust in my area yesterday was 68 MPH...no damage to the yard or house as of yet.

A little bit early to think of snow here, but then you never can tell in this area.

Right now it's sunny and breezy,with a lot of leaves to rake.

But like Schneider says, this can change in a heartbeat---.

John, you live too close to Sheboygan. It's always colder there.

..and we should make jschneider admit he lives in mid Wisconsin, compared to those of us in the deep south (deep south Wisconsin, that is). But I'm afraid I'm not far enough south to avoid the cold and wind. The Racine, Wisconsin (where I work) tornado bounced over our heads the other day. One mile west of us the Case New Holland building lost a piece of it's roof the size of a football field. A half mile east there was a strip mall that had some wind damage, fallen trees, etc. For us, just windy.

HA Pete I hope you have to wait till Jan or Feb.
Last year I went to town Dec. 25 to check on my business and move the snow out of the parking lot.
It took me 1 hour to get home, 10 miles. Total whiteout, had to put chains on my Subaru, to get up the hill, the last 3 miles.
Actually, being a child, I enjoyed going up the hill full blast, plowing with the bumper, seeing crap, the dogs geting all exited, jumping all over the car, geting glued to the side window in the curves, HOHOHOHOHO
