    Yeah, 90% percent chance of snow tonight in the Texas Panhandle. It didn't rain all year, and now we've got snow in October. I bet I'll be done mowing the first week of November now. It's usually the first week of December. I guess that's cool, though. Nov. 15-18 I'll be taking my irrigation class and it's Thanksgiving shortly after that. I'm about ready for this nightmare of a season to be over with anyhow.

    3 chances for snow in the forcast here in CT. It's about a month early for that. Usually we don't get the first snowfall until around Thanksgiving. I like it though. It helps my case in convincing my customers to not wait until all the leaves are down before doing fall cleanups....do the getting while the getting is good.

    A lot of the trees here are bare already...swamp maples and birches and fruit and nut trees to name a few...not to get off topic.

    If it does snow it will just take me a few hours to prep for a minor storm, assuming mice haven't chewed all the wires on my plow or anything.

    I'm curious, is there alot of plow work up there in the winter?

    I am down near Dallas. Its been dry here but your climate zone gets about 20 inches less rain a year on average than me so I feel for you.

    Snow is a four letter word in my vocabulary! For many of you farther north, I suppose it is a five letter word: MONEY! :)
