Forgot I had these pics on my phone.

The first snowfall this winter was October 12, 2019.

These pics are the first heavy snowfall this winter. October 31, 2019.

Heavy, sticky snow.

Those trees are supposed to be standing up. The one is a bulbous pine tree about 10 feet tall that normally sort of looks like a hot air balloon. But the top 3 or so feet of it is weighted down and slumped to the left onto the roof of that structure next to it. The rest of its limbs are all pushed down. The branches touching the ground are normally about 5 feet off the ground.

The tree with a road in the background is supposed to be standing up like the left side of it is. I'm surprised the branches didn't break.

I'm looking forward to the ice/snow driving videos from Russia.
I'm most impressed on the number of old Lada's I see in them!

I had three awesome weekends of skiing...then it rained like crazy for two days.
I'm probably not going to bother to go this coming weekend.

I feel bad for you guys who don't get to experience the seasons!!

You're going to need 4WD or AWD for that stuff.

What I mind the most is the icy walkways and wooden steps around my home. Given dogs and what salt does to things I do what I can with a shovel. Wife wants to use a flame thrower on anything with ice.

We have all AWD or 4WD so no real issue driving in the snow.

There's always this back and forth with the weather chatter. Long ago my dad said about moving south from Minneapolis area='I'd spend about the same amount of time indoors due to the heat as I do up here due to the cold'. The folks couldn't afford 2 places, so stayed up north with occasional winter visits to southern pals, who generally came north to visit them during summer. That was a good exchange and I think dad had the right idea..

Don't bother. I experienced the seasons for 48 years in NW Pa and my regret is not realizing sooner how poor the good weather/bad weather ratio is there. Coming on 15 years and still don't miss it a bit.

We had to scrape frost off the windshield in San Antonio this morning.

That should be it for winter 2019-2020 for us.
