    Well today is the first snow of the year but we still have leafs coming down. Hopefully it will melt in a few days so we can finish up fall cleanups. Here with the elevation changes I'll have yards with 6" on them and yards with nothing all within 10-15 miles. Makes it hard to coordinate when your plowing on the mountain and mowing on the bottom lol. Makes it a tough decision to throw the plow on and wait or hook up to the trailer and do a cleanup or 2. Anybody else live in the mountains and deal with this

    Actually it is the last snow of the year as of today. We have until December 31 to have another last day of the year snow.

    Hoping for a lot more last snow's of the year this year. And that we start the new year off right with a snow on January 1, 2014. And, more important that the snow on January 1 is the last snow of the year.

    Not mountains, but lake effect snow can cause the same issues. This storm put 3 inches from the lake shore south for about 50 miles. Looks like we may lose Thursday to melting snow also.
