Now that the 1st snow has past it will serve as a reminder.
Gotta admit, I love how you changed the Blackhawk logo to look like Coach Q. How's it gonna feel when he winds up back in STL? I know I am looking forward to it

I warn people the first snow of the winter is when all the people who bought all-wheel-drive SUV's over the past 9 months learn the hard lesson that AWD or 4WD does NOT repeal the laws of physics. The 2 mile road to my house is pretty flat, except for one hill that approaches with a right hand curve and immediately curves to the left at the crest. It's not a big hill, but EVERY SINGLE TIME we have a 'first snowfall' there will be a Ford Explorer or Chevy Tahoe upside down in the ditch because they were going to fast.

I just wanna scream at them "Hey! My car has 4 wheel BRAKES too!"

Grass still green here in Southwest Minnesota. Don't get the wrong idea, we've had over 6" of the white stuff already. Leaving for Texas in a couple weeks. I'm sure I'll have to dig the 5er out to go.

Yep, had sleet here, yesterday, too. Haven't seen the news yet today. Did hell freeze over and I missed it?

We just thought that we here in NH would share some nice fall weather. Time to sit around the woodstove and sing one of the holiday classics such as "I'm dreaming of a white Thanksgiving" or " Frosty the Turkey"

Cold?

Here in Idaho, the morning temps this week were 3, 7, and 5 degrees F. Almost too cold to snow. Flip-flops crack at those temps.

Possibly, some of you have forgotten that the U.S. Constitution allows totally free travel between the states.

Ha! We are heading to the Solar Minimum with the Milankovitch cycle. Get ready for colder weather over the next 30 years!

We are camped in Forman, ND. Two days ago it was -2. Today a heat wave 32 high. Into the 20's tonight.

It is fun to camp in the snow

I missed this the first time through. Thanks, as if I needed a reminder why the DW and I are turning into Snowbirds.

Well not this year. This year we’ve already had temperatures in the teens and now we have about 5 inches of snow on the ground and it’s still snowing. This is way out of the norm for St. Louis, but for the first time in many years, I’m tickled that I winterized the trailer in October. This just ain’t right for St. Louis and Mother Nature needs to be put in a time-out.

Im jealous, I come from mountain region of WV and always loved the snow, 2 feet of snow is wonderful, 3 feet even better. Now I'm in NC and we rarely get a decent snowfall. And I get ticked when you hear about a "major" storm bringing a whopping 6 inches of snow, and then come to find out it falls as rain.. frecon weather people.. Ugh. I love to snowmobile too, can't do that here in nc either. At least not on the regular.

But you can camp all year, as a lot of us North Carolinians do.

Every year we go to southern texas for the winter. And every year we leave earlier and earlier. And we still get a snowstorm on the day we leave. Last year we left in a blizzard. I couldnít see where i was on the road for the first 30 miles. Right now we are leaving tomorrow night and another storm is happening. It is snowing like crazy. Supposed to snow all night and all day tomorrow with up to 40 knot wind gusts. My family said why donít you leave in SEPTEMBER or OCTOBER next year. I told them when i leave this time iím not coming back. Anybody that wants it can have Michigan, no charge. Iíve had 69 years of it.
