    Does that mean it's nearly Christmas? :toothy10:

    Are we talking a lot of snow or a few flakes? And what does that do to the dew point??!!

    We've been having snow off an on since Wednesday. Just a few flakes, no accumulation. Except in the mountains and some higher elevations.

    Whereabouts do you live? It's getting cold here but I can't imagine having snow yet.

    It's more of a damp type of cold here but the sun is shining :)

    I often think it would be lovely to live somewhere that gets lots of snow. But the practicalities - and what it would do to my hair.........

    We're getting cold rain here, but I saw a car yesterday with a couple inches of snow on it -- must have come from the northwest corner of NJ, it's been snowing there.

    Now, my sister in Montana told me they had two feet of snow last week. I would not be ready for that yet!

    It's snowing/snowed here, too. Higher elevations got 5 inches yesterday into today. We have a dusting on our car and roof. It's too damn early for this. It's something like 20 degrees colder than average.

    Woke up to snow this morning too. :( Fortunately it just seemed to be blowing around and not accumulating. It was just yesterday that it hit me that summer is really over.

    Although it is early, I envy those of you with snow. I miss it! :cry: But we never really got over a couple of feet in Germany, and about a foot in New Mexico. That's a nice amount of snow for me. :)

    You ladies talk of the snow ruining your hair, that has never affected my hair. :? Unless I had to wear a hat.

    Oh, and I'll trade you for this late heat wave. It was 80 yesterday. :p

    Me, too, Curlylocks. It's going to be 91 here today! Only, I don't want a lot of snow. A couple inches, once or twice a year would be good. I miss watching it fall...from my window. Don't miss the driving in it. Heck, they can't even deal with the couple days of rain we had this week around here. Oh, but to sit and watch it fall...it's so peaceful.

    I often think it would be lovely to live somewhere that gets lots of snow. But the practicalities - and what it would do to my hair.........

    I lived through this last winter.. My honey digging out his car. I helped shovel the other side of the driveway. This was in Vancouver, BC 12/08. This is a huge amount of snow, last year was a freak heavy snow year. FYI. :)

    IMGP3070.jpg

    And you know not much happened with my hair.. Once you get your routine down, - clear driveway, chain up the car(if needed) then you get ready for work. Its not really that bad on your hair, since you did the dirty work before you got ready for the day. :) And you up the moisture you use. Its dry compared to days its raining cause you think its humid but not really. That was new to me since being from Cali, snow was not a substance I had any experience with.

    Snow is awsome from that childlike wonderment, but having to crawl under your car and put on snow chains since the city does not plow the streets - not fun.. But once you figure out how to get around not so bad.

    Exactly the bolded! :) I used to stand at my bedroom window at night in Germany and watch the snow fall in the moonlight........

    Thanks for the pic, PT_Cuda! I guess it would be exciting for a year or so....I have family in Vancouver but have never visited, if I do then I'll go in the winter.

    Yep. Way too early. Had some flakes a couple days ago. Had to clean snow of the Jeep windshield this morn. Trying hard not to bit*h about it since it will be commonplace for the next 5 or 6 months.

    Just wait til the olympics are over.. Traffic is gonna suck large.. Not even a nexus pass is gonna help wait times at the boarder..

    Feb/march is the best time I hear to catch the white stuff.. Even if there isn't snow on the ground in vancouver - go up to Grouse or Whistler.. Grouse is closer to Vancouver smaller but its still beautiful and can easily be done in a day.

    I lived in the high desert of CA for a couple of years. It did get depressing after awhile not being able to watch the seasons change. Every day was brown.

    The snow we had melted today. It was nice to watch and listen to actually (it made a hushing noise against the leaves) but I would rather it come next month!

    I can't even imagine snow anywhere right now. It is 64 degrees under brilliant, cloudless blue skies here in Nor Cal. It feels more like 72 degrees. I'm not buying 64; I think it's an error.

    It won't be this year - I'm saving up for 3 airfares + accomodation and each time I get close the money is needed elsewhere! It's a long way to Vancouver from where I live hence the high cost. I need to go, I've never met my biological father and I want to before he croaks.

    So if you're getting snow early on your side of the pond, I wonder if us curlies in the UK are in for a hard winter? The weather in NY often ends up here, albeit slightly milder/gentler.

    That's my very favorite part. I liked to stand outside at night to 'listen' to the snow fall.

    I like watching it fall from safely indoors, but I've lived in New England too long -- part of me is always thinking about what a *&^% it's going to be to clean it up.

    And I'm sorry, but -- OCTOBER 16? That is just wrong on so many levels. I don't remember ever seeing snow this early.
