Snow

This may be a record for latest first snowfall, at least in terms of what I remember here in New Jersey. We got about half an inch last night, a nice little dusting that made it much easier for the rather lazy bluejays in our backyard to pick out the stale pretzels that we frequently leave for them as late morning snacks.

Tonight's fluff stuff was more of a snow dump than a snow fall; it began snowing when hockey practice was almost over, and by the time everyone changed, packed up, and go to their cars, it was really coming down; by the time we got home there was measureable snowman raw material. There's still a trickle of snow, the kind of snow that's hard to distinguish from wind blown rehashes of what's already down.

This is a warning sign that it's time to finally finish cleaning out the garage, so I can park indoors again, rather than spend the first ten minutes of every morning scraping "winter mix" off of the car.

Um... here in Colorado we still have a 2 foot base left over from 3 weeks ago! If you can actually \*move\* your car into the garage before digging it out, then you don't have enough snow yet!
