yep, snow before Halloween :)

Wow!  This was a pleasant surprise!  Today, we woke to heavy snowfall... and the nice, slushy kind that makes excellent snowballs and fantastic pictures!  It's now after 9pm, and it's still snowing!   :)

Wonder what the trees are thinking?  "Hey, our leaves haven't even fallen off yet and it's snowing?"  LOL!

Earlier today, we ventured out, on foot... there is no better way to experience it!  Sitting in a "snowglobe" (corner table at our local DD surrounded by huge windows) we watched the magical storm, cars getting stuck, etc... mocha and white hot chocolate were the "icing on the cake"!

Snow hasn't fallen, before Halloween, since 1979! We had a blast and I captured some of the sights and sounds to share with you... enjoy!    This video actually caught a loud clap of thunder... awesome sight!

"Thundersnow, also known as a winter thunderstorm or a thunder snowstorm, is a relatively rare kind of thunderstorm with snow falling as the primary precipitation instead of rain."
