Nah, a typical coastal storm we see here in the Mid Atlantic / Northeast. This is quite early for one though.

I've got about an inch of snow on the ground already. You don't need much snow to have quite a bit of fun in an empty parking lot with your summer tires on...

Garrett's happier than a pig in ****. 15 minutes of running around outside, 10 minutes inside to warm up, then rinse/repeat.

Tough to get him to stay still for any pictures. He's too interested in everything that's going on to listen to me unless I have a snowball for him to play with...

Saturday: Rain before 2pm, then snow. High near 40. North wind between 14 and 17 mph. Chance of precipitation is 100%. New snow accumulation of 2 to 4 inches possible.

Saturday Night: Snow, mainly before 2am. Low around 29. North wind between 16 and 18 mph. Chance of precipitation is 90%. New snow accumulation of 1 to 2 inches possible.

I'll keep my yap shut weather-wise. It is WAY TOO early for this.

Think I heard on the radio that the last measurable October snow in the Philly area was 0.3" in 1979.

The last snow measuring 1" or more was in 1949. Way before my time.
