Still snowing here. We've probably got 5 or 6 inches.

Sorry, man. That sucks. Too soon for snow.

Where you at? A friend of mine in Idaho has been getting lots of snow too.

OK, I'm out the door now to enjoy the day. :)

PDX is clear, low 50's and no breeze - nice to be outside

3" of snow so far...

77 degrees here today. Lovely. I don't miss the snow one bit.

It was 7 this morning and it took me almost half an hour to scrape the snow and ice off my car.

We got a lot of snow, but it wasn't very deep.

Rain-sleet-freezing rain-snow-sleet-snow-freezing rain ...

Good thing the tree outside my patio still has all that Fall moisture and plyability on board ... it's bent nearly to the ground from the weight of the snow and ice but isn't showing signs of having limbs crack off.

My lights keep flickering ... not sure how long power will stay up. Hopefully the Kindle will finish charging before I lose power. At least I finished dinner, already, and have plenty of stuff that's good to eat cold ... maybe I should do up a thermos or two of tea while I'm thinking of it ...

All of this reminds me of my childhood, though. Snow for Halloween makes me nostalgic.

When you live near Chicago you make sure your Halloween costume fits over a snowsuit.

This year we're doing better than you. Mostly sunny and 50s today.

Beautiful sunny autumn day in PDX...

I thought they were predicting only a couple of inches of snow... Wow !


The combination of heavy, wet snow, leaf-laden trees and frigid,
gusting winds brought down limbs and power lines.
At least three deaths were blamed on the weather, and states of emergency
were declared in New Jersey, Connecticut, Massachusetts and parts of New York.

The storm worsened as it moved north, and communities
in western Massachusetts were among the hardest hit.
Snowfall totals topped 27 inches in Plainfield, and
nearby Windsor had gotten 26 inches by early Sunday.

"It's a little startling. I mean, it's only October," said Craig Brodur,
who was playing keno with a friend at Northampton Convenience in western Massachusetts.

It's very good vampire weather here in the Ohio valley.

Cool air.

Raw umber; crispy leaves swirling about. :ghost: weather.

My power stayed up all night, only a couple of flickers. I just learned, though, that friends of mine further North (up where Berks, Lehigh, Montgomery, and Bucks meet) have been without power for 26 hours. They do have a generator, but their refrigerator seems not to be functioning at all, and they have no water.

What is very frustrating is that I have not been able to find any information about dry ice distrubtion by the power companies (there are at least three involved up in that area ... I've checked the power companies, the local newspapers, and local TV and Radio. Nothing.
