Tom's Weather Journal - November 11
Just before Hallowe'en we got our first snow. At this time of year, snowfall is usually determined by elevation; those of us who live higher up get more. You can always tell the cars that come from hill locations when you go to our nearest "big" town; they're the ones with snow on the roof. The mountains get a good shot of snow quite early, maybe in late September. We are at 1300 feet at our house and there comes a night in mid or late October when we get an inch or so. This usually melts, and then we have some warmer weather again just as we did this year from November 5th through the 8th. Then it turned rainy and colder, and last night we got our second snowfall, an inch that came heavy and fast. Today is breezy and cold in the 30's, a great day for working outside.
