We had our fist snow yesterday. Looks like you folks on the eastern seaboard are due for a big blow this weekend.

Big snowstorm this weekend in North East. (https://www.accuweather.com/blogs/news/story/56969/nyc-philly-boston-snow-versus.asp)

Going to Allentown PA tomorrow for a car club meeting. 76 miles, one way. I may have to put the top up on the MGB (I'm at work right now and it's sitting outside my building right now with the top down).

October snow is well withing the current, expected variance of weather conditions here in the northeast USA. Whether that will be true in 100 years is an entirely different question.

Then there is this... (https://www.accuweather.com/blogs/newsstory/news/56993/early-northeast-snowstorm-dest.aspther.com/blogs/newsstory/news/56993/early-northeast-snowstorm-dest.asp)

<span style="font-style: italic">"From a historical perspective, the upcoming major Northeast winter storm could prove to be <span style="font-weight: bold">unprecedented in terms of its early arrival </span>in the season and the amount of snow it will drop."</span>

As for 100 years from now - they only thing I'm certain of is I'll be dead!

Odd - since it was a direct cut and paste. Anyway, try it now.

OK, OK, I agree....the fact that it's <span style="font-style: italic">unprecedented</span> does seem to point towards climate change. :laugh:

No more so than any other weather record that has been set since records have been kept. And it is colder than normal vice other way round. Maybe there's a reason the script has changed in the media to call "it" Climate Change vice the previous vernacular.

Regardless, be careful if you're out driving in this stuff.

"We" were crossing the Bering Strait during that last one! Clovis points an' all that jazz! Managed to wander down to South America and meander'd across most of the northern hemisphere.

Hmmmm?......Others (https://www.nasa.gov/topics/earth/features/climate_by_any_other_name.html) besides "the media".

But thanks.....I'll be careful out there. :wink:

I hate to break everyone's "unprecedented" North East snow fall bubble. On October 31, 1986 (a Friday) more than 10 inches of snow fell on Prince Edward Island, Canada and it was not considered out of the ordinary. How do you say do you, a sun loving California Surf Dude know this. Well, that was my first date with my now bride of 23 years (while living on said Island). It is all a matter of the jet stream lottery. Thanks for reminding me, I now have to go get her a gift :thankyousign: :nopity:

That's why I did it, Doc. Been caught out prepping the bike in the cold and snow before. I may still be shivering. :smile:

Yes, I know all about NASA, James Hansen and all the rest. I'll be satisfied just to be sure my opinion is etched on my tombstone. Nuff said.

It ain't my bubble! The only bubbles that are mine are when I ----- in the bathtub.

We got rain, about 2 inches. You can keep the other stuff, we don't allow it around here! :nopity:
Well, let me put it this way, we don't WANT IT around here! :devilgrin:

Yep, that's almost a guarantee. It may snow everywhere else in NH, just not at your house!

We got a light dusting of snow here last night. I cannot recall the last time we had snow in October.

Ugh. I'm <span style="font-style: italic">never</span> ready for winter . . . :cryin:

All my games got cancelled.... I was expecting the grass fields to cancel, but not the turf fields.
I just hope they call off tomorrows games as the fields will be muddy.

You know it can't be good if Jim Cantore is hanging out in your neighborhood (Harrisburg, Pa.). It looks to be 6-8" of heavy wet snow here in Central Pa.
The record snow fall for all of the past Octobers in our area is 2".
