    Not yet in my part of N. AZ although Flagstaff got a dusting 2 weeks ago. Probably in the next couple of weeks.

    Yep, got a little bit here (Indianapolis, a bit N. of BrianMc), but it's in the realm of what I call "white crap", not snow. Probably more accurately graupel. It was definitely solid as it fell, but the ground was warm enough that it melted on contact. First hard freeze of the season this morning, but skies were clear and no real moisture to speak of.

    Nothing yet, but we're supposed to get some on Sunday along with a few days that won't get above freezing. It's been a nice October so far though.

    Enough at higher elevations that my friend got in her first ski yesterday, but nothing that stuck on the commuter route.

    I've had below 0C here a week but no snow yet.

    Got some winter tires a few days ago. Nokian W240, they will kick ass.

    1st snowflakes last night/this morning... too warm to stick. More like slow moving rain.
    You have no excuse for driving to work
    (unless you don't have studded tires)
    (no excuse for that either)

    I've had 3 days with flurries and one of those days the bridges were pretty slick here in Denver. Chance of snow this week too.

    We got flurries in Pittsburgh apparently the other day, with places further North getting a couple inches. Of course, I was in Austin, TX at the time...where it was in the 80's.

    Back to the 50's/60's the next few days....but eagerly awaiting snow.
    Oh noes. I'm going to drink the Kool-Aid.
