    We had our first snow that stuck on Thursday. It snowed, melted, snowed and got cold so the roads were ice. I'm terrified of riding on ice so this winter will be interesting.

    Woo Hoo! We got about a foot in the last day. The ski trails have been rolled, so I finally got out this morning. It snowed HARD. About 10 miles North of here they got 12" overnight last night, from a big lake effect band, in addition to what fell yesterday and today. Hopefully we'll just keep building our base now, and won't lose it until April.

    We got about 3-4 inches. Curiously, hardly any of it stuck on the roads, etc. I guess it's because it was 68 degrees on Thursday! However, the grassy surfaces and woods look very much like Lisa's picture. Going out for a hike in a bit.

    Well, I am not a big fan of snow. It means tough in/out of our farm lane, small farm chores become big farm chores, and I can't ride my bicycle! However, it's my tradition to take a trail ride on my horse first thing after a snowfall to enjoy the beauty of it, before getting to work! Pics from this mornings ride...

    Snow

    Great pics everyone! We received about 3", and it looks as though more is coming this next week. Zen , your area looks a lot like the area that I live in as wellWent for a mtn bike ride yesterday on some of the trails. It was a great ride, although a bit slippery with the new snow, lots of mud underneath covered in ice. But I was scouting out some trails for winter riding... looks like I found some great ones

    We've gotten about 18 inches since this time yesterday and it's still coming down, with the hardest snow yet to come.

    We had to put on snowshoes to go walk the dogs. I'll try to take some pictures later.

    It started early this morning and has been snowing steadily since! I'd say we have about 3-4 inches sticking on the ground so far. We are supposed to be in for a doozy later on today and tonight.

    I'm ready; i've got wood by my wood stove ready to go; the fixins for some great turkey chili and cornbread to be eaten with a nice bottle of ale; and a good book to sit in front of the fire.

    All I have to do is get home later and shovel my way in; then I'll be set!

    They said we were going to get wind with this storm; but so far, it is a gentle, big snowflake kind of snow; really beautiful! I'd take a picture, but my camera is at home.

    Waaah! My cross country skis are still dry. We were supposed to get 2 flakes over the weekend, but didn't get any. I really wanted to post a photo of ski tracks in my front yard.

    Of course around here, the entire place shuts down if snow even arrives, let alone sticks!


    Thanks for the snow photos - got to admit I miss the stuff. Also have to admit that when I lived in snow country, round about March I was ready for sunny warm weather too.
