Six inches at Cedar Ridge this morning, according to my sister Lenna, who called her neighbors. She is in town looking after Dad's place and looking through photo boxes, etc., but they said six inches. The oaks haven't shed there yet, and the trees are all bendy. It will likely melt away by this afternoon, I'm thinking. Looks to be clearing fast over the range of light. Their snow level's around 3,500 around Sonora, likely mushy and bothersome.

From my perch I see snow down to the top of Guadalupe Ridge, the Mariposa foothills. Exactly on time. Keep it coming for Thanksgiving!!!

edit: Quick conversation with Mathis in Greeley Hill--four inches, clear as a bell when he went to bed! It's clearing off, but how warm will it get?

Ironically I was planning to go to Sonora to get more appropriate tires for the truck... ie snow-rated. Guess that'll have to wait.

Oh, and it's sunny and about 40F in my part of Greeley Hill.

hey there say, all.... well, the boston gal has said her snow turned fast to rain... warmed up a tad, too, there....


as to us all, in mich:
we are 63* now... mostly rain and cloudy...

i like having snow late, due to me being so used to sanjose fall, and south texas fall... (both non-snow) so it's like a childhood fall here for me...

will let you all when the snow DOES hit, as from what i learned:
it can be anytime from oct-march... though it's gone on into april and may, as a 'trick' at times, :))

the heaviest however seems to be in jan and feb...
'course the oldtimers around here knew differently...

most folks agree--winters are lighter now...

Wowsa.... Stuck on I70 by Richfield in Southern Utah trying to get to I15 headed back to Red Rocks. Probably too cold and windy down there to snag a few climbs.. We shall see.
Snow plows where are you....Dealing with about 3 to 4 inches fresh on the road. 4Runner handling it pretty good.
