Alrighty then... About 10:30 last night we had a huge T-storm pass through with the associated heavy rain. About midnight, right before I went to bed, I looked outside and sure enough we had the beginnings of a white coating on the ground. We didn't get much overnight, but the ground is dusted nicely with snow and it's still lightly snowing nice big flakes. So, though it started later than normal this year, I guess this means that winter is indeed finally upon us. If some normalcy remains, this is a prelude and we'll have a few more days/weeks of nice weather before the real cold/snow hits. Guess I better stop procrastinating and get those final chores done.
Hope all are well! If you're out on the roads this morning, take care and drive easy.
