Woke up to this. The last snow on Halloween in Chicago was a trace in 1993.

Boy do I remember that dismal day.  I was stuck on the Passaic River in Newark waiting for the tide to drop low enough to get under a roadway bridge between us and the dock.  This was our from the survey boat  :o

I went out at 4am in central Mass. It was really surreal.

Trees were down all over and you could hear them exploding all around.

I think that was the time we face-timed in my class, wasn't it?

We got snow today, but nothing stuck.

No. That was the hurricane. Irene? It was way messed up here. It was only a couple of months before the blizzard.

When I was outside around 9 it has switched from rain to snow, but the ground is so warm and wet it was all melting.  We shall see what tomorrow brings!

Same here, but with the tractor and the blade.  I did my driveway/barn/path to the barn and my neighbor's driveway and pushed all the slush back away- it will be rock hard by morning.  It was 31.9 when I woke up, 31 when I started to move snow, and 26 now, an hour and a half later.  Single digits by the end of the day.

We are getting dumped on now.  We are at an all day high- 8 degrees- but we have probably picked up 6-8 inches in the last 3-4 hours with some wind.

I am one of the few that actually love it.  We got probably 12" in the last 12-14 hours with some blowing and drifting.  I love everything about it- as long as its gonna be cold, I'd just as soon be dumped on, even without snowdays.   :thumbsup:

Same here.  If it's going to be cold there may as well be snow.  Otherwise, what's the point?

I could do without the 40mph winds though.  It makes shoveling a pain in the arse.

Gotta be tough when you're stupid enough to speed in that weather.  I've seen big pileups on I-94 out near St. Joseph during lake effect storms while crossing the overpass headed for my hotel.

WTF looks like this snow line has parked over me.

Over 2 inches and it looks like it's not going to let up and my snow blower is broken.
