First Snow - November 2010

It came down hard for awhile and made the roads pretty slick.  I think we got 6 to 8 inches by this morning.  I'll go out and shovel at daylight and then I'll know better.  There are supposed to be three or four waves of this, with the second coming later today, another on Monday and one more on Tuesday.  Better to keep up on the shoveling than to let it pile up.  It's beautiful looking at it from the windows.

These shots are from last evening.  I'll add more once we have some good daylight here.

Finished first round of shoveling around 8:30 a.m. Had help from a neighbor boy or I'd still be out there. I'm guessing we had 10 to 12 inches in all. Fog has rolled in now and maybe the next wave is starting. Not bad work for an old lady, I think. Now for something warm to drink.
 
 
Ending with a spot of sunlight on pristine, white Antelope Island.

Beautiful pictures. I love when the snow comes down like goose down and I have absolutely nowhere to go.

And I must confess to some degree I even enjoy shoveling snow. If the wind isn't blowing that is. And it is a test that we are not that old yet.

I was thinking the same thing yesterday. The neighbor kid comes over quite often to help me, but I still go out and shovel myself. As long as I can do it, I think I should. I won't stop until I truly can't handle it. The key is to pace yourself - know how much you can lift.

Very nice. There is something about that first snow that I really like. As long as it doesn't come with blizzard conditions or ice. We haven't had anything but sleet so far....

Hi TB, I think about Minnesota weather a lot now my former BF lives in the Twin City area.

We have a white-out blizzard predicted for later today and into tomorrow followed by single-digit highs. It's dangerous weather and unusual for November. Very bad timing for the holiday.
