We're getting hit with our first heavy snowfall of the season. Cool : -)

I don't expect this one to stick, but the first snow of the year is always fun . . . of course come next May there's still snow on the ground, I'll not likely think it's so cool.

Hal, sorry but it is just to soon for snow, even in Alaska. Good luck with winter.

Hal - is that in Miles City?

I'm moving back in December I think. I get my winter clothes out when it gets down to 60 here. Guess I'll have to adjust.

Hal is in Alaska. We haven't had a killing frost yet, although one is reported be coming Wednesday or Thursday night.

We are not far behind you Hal...Colorado mountains just got 10 inches last weekend and we are expecting another blast this weekend...just in time for my elk hunting trip in the West Elk Wilderness.

I did scrape the car windows this morning for the first time this season. Some of the squash leaves have been touched. Still have tomatoes a' growing.

We're in Anchorage this week, Susan was in need of some retail therapy - I'm here to do duty as the pack mule ; -)

The snow didn't stick back home - but it's snowing pretty good here in Los Anchorage this morning - the ground is turning white.

Homegrowed tomatoes - I am envious.

So who wants to take odds that Miles City gets mostly missed with this weekend's snow "storm?"

There were some white flakes around 10:00 a.m. but they quit. Just rain now. Sensitive plants are dead but my cosmos are happy and blooming merrily.

This was one of my favorite things about the webcam - snow! I used to enjoy watching it fall at night via the webcam. It was pretty peaceful. Hopefully another cam can be put up soon.

There was no snow on the ground here when we got home last night. I guess there's been a lot of mixed rain & snow coming down. From the plane last evening it looked like there's a lot of the white stuff in the high country to the north and east of us. It's pouring rain here this morning - sounds like it will turn to snow later in the day.

Anchorage got some snow while we there, but it had melted off by the time we left. Wednesday afternoon we took a drive to Girdwood - about an hour southeast of Anchorage. They had 4 or 5 inches of wet snow on the ground there.

Here's a couple photos of the mountains to the south of Los Anchorage - they were taken from our room (12th floor) in the downtown area.

Aside from the fact that there's around 280,000 too many people there, it's kind of pretty place.
