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.

  1. Been raining like crazy here! Thought it was going to flood if it didn't stop earlier. Don't think we'll see snow here though. It's beautiful when it's some place else!

  3. Beautiful photos! We haven't had any real accumulation here in Wisconsin yet, but the news keep showing all the hardware stores having a run on shovels. Do you think we'll all have the "big winter" everyone's talking about?

  4. A nice dusting of snow Tom. We are flat landers here in SW Indiana where I live. Surrounded by fields full of corn or soybeans as the year dictates. We have had 40 degree days and today drizzling rain for most of the day.

  7. Oh boy! That first picture is so beautiful. Down here on the seacoast we still haven't seen snow. I'm so envious of you. Of course, round about March and April I know I will be grumping about all the snow. But, the first of winter is always so pretty.

  8. I love snow! Maybe because we so rarely experience it, the beauty is what I see, not the discomfort or the mess. Thanks for sharing the lovely photos.

  9. I feel I should say, how do you do, Tom! We live on the edge of the Cheviot Hills, and from this time of year onwards cars often drive into town with snow-covered roofs. I'm watching for the first snow on The Cheviot itself, as it's the highest in the area, and we have an excellent view of it, on those days when we can see it at all.

Now that I am a grandmother, it seems that I am often late in replying to your most-appreciated comments. But I read them as soon as they come in, and I will write as soon as I can. Please do come back and check. I love these blogging conversations. A little addendum - I've just spent quite a long time catching up with dear notes you left me months ago!! I do hope you can get back to read them. And I'm trying to be much more prompt now!

Also, you may comment on any post, no matter how old, and I will see it.
