I woke up Saturday morning to the snow falling fast and furious here in Pennsylvania, just about 35 miles outside Philadelphia. It snowed and it snowed and it snowed all day long and the snow actually stuck the streets, the grass and the trees. The power went out and came back on multiple times throughout the day but eventually our luck ran out and it finally went out around 3:30PM and has yet to be restored. I would guess that we have about 3-4″ of the white stuff on the ground right now. The picture to the right was taken around 11:00AM this morning just as the storm was getting started. it was a great time to reconnect with the family and spend some quality time together. Unfortunately it’s currently 54 degrees F in the house (no electricity means no heat) so it’s pretty cold and the battery in my laptop is about to die.
I’ve never seen snow (in my lifetime) in the PA-NJ-NYC area prior to Halloween, I’m curious what that means for the rest of winter.
Is it snowing where you are?
Update: Sunday October 30, 2011 7:00AM – it’s 51 degrees F in the house this morning and the power was just restored and the heat is on!

I think we’ve had our first snow about a week ago, being a 1,2″ and only lasting a day and a half without any power cuts – it’s nothing compared to what you got.
Contrary even, the weather is now hitting 68 degrees F with sun whereas it should have been 48 degrees F with chilling winds… Some Halloween I’d say.

In all honesty we didn’t have it too bad… there are folks north of us that are still without power and some communities in NY and MA that got a lot more snow that we did.
It’s certainly odd for there to be snow on the ground while walking the kids around on Halloween!
Thanks for the comment!
