    We got the cold from that one down here, but not the snow.

    I forgot you were in Missouri, I was just running through there a few weekends back. Picked up a mortising machine in Knob Noster. I don't remember ever driving through before, really nice country there! The guy I bought the machine from was telling me a bit of the troubles raising cattle in the area - just blew my mind, since grass simply grows there! (down here we have to buy the stuff as often as not )

    Good first dusting for you. NW Ark had a light drizzle and in higher 30s last night, no snow. Tonight will be first hard frost - predicting 17 degrees.

    We got a couple of inches here last night but worse than that is the below zero wind chills tonight and tomorrow. It's normally close to 50 here this time of year

    Yep, it was a little slick driving home from work last night, and colder than a witches tit when I left work an hour ago.

    Got 1"-2" inches here in Illannoy. Sloppy wet and cold with wind. The woofer and I did the morning walk and then into the shop. Bluing tanks fired up and in 15 minutes the chill was gone, and working in a tee shirt.

    Nice picture Scott
    I like the way it looks on the branches, dislike the shoveling that comes later in the season
    We thought about it for a long time, "Endeavor to persevere." And when we had thought about it long enough, we declared war on the Union

    Thank you.

    It was a heavy, wet snow. Made the branches hang low.

    Thumbs up

    You guys are more than welcome to all of the snow you can handle. It's pretty enough I'll grant you, but when it comes to roost for half the year....well you can keep it. Looking at your pictures is good enough for me. I'm sure you feel the same about my long term high humidity and heat.

    Anyway I hope y'all enjoy it all the same. My joints just hurt a lot less here
