Saturday morning update: It was just raining when my darling bride went to work, but has since changed over to snow. These pictures were taken around 10:30 AM:

View out a second-story back window. Note that some of the trees are still green!

It's starting to stick to the grass, but not the paved surfaces.

The view down the street; note all of the leaves on the red maples.

Click on any picture to enlarge. The snow is falling pretty heavily now, and my main concern is that it’ll bring down power lines. If you don’t see anything from me later, you can figure that I’ve lost either electricity or the internet, or both.

    We had snow on Hallowe’en our first year here, 2002, but that was it. On our first Christmas here, we got fourteen inches of snow Christmas morning, and the power went out at 11:37 AM. The power wasn’t restored until 6:00 PM on the 26th. We had no internet! 😦

    My darling bride made a huge pot of vegetable soup — really more of a vegetable stew than soup — on Thursday. There’s still plenty left, and I put the pot back on the stove to heat it up, but it’s not bad cold, either. At any rate, we won’t die of hungervation if the power does go out.

    wow. looks like your nor’easter beat out our lake effect this year. its kind of pretty.. at first..

    there was an inch of snow about 15 miles south of our town but none here. i think it may have sleeted saturday afternoon. we were in erie that day and it just rained there.

    ugh, i am totally unprepared for winter this year. we have to travel to cleveland clinic right after christmas. that ride along the lake-shore can be treacherous that time of year. i just put new michilin’s on the suv last week, (ouch$) so at least we are ready in that regard.
