It's Christmas in October!

Been snowing here since around 10:30 a.m. Eastern Time -- and the flakes they keep coming down (as will probably a few trees and power lines, bleh).

It's like Christmas... in October.

Talk about the ultimate trick or treat.

Happy Halloween!

UPDATED 2 P.M.: Just took this picture of a tree in our yard. Say goodbye to your leaves, tree!

[NOTE: The original soundtrack was 10,000 Maniacs' "Like the Weather," but YouTube said I didn't have permission to use it, bastards, even though I bought it on iTunes, so I swapped in "Winter" from Vivaldi's Four Seasons.]

UPDATED 10/30/11: We lost power yesterday at 2:45 p.m. ET and have been informed by the power company that we could be out for a week. Again. (See Irene, Hurricane.) We're tempted to move out West, but knowing our luck, as soon as we moved, there'd be earthquakes, wildfires, and mudslides.

Looks like a good snow.

Flakes large.

Us folks further North get snow sometimes in September, but it rarely stays around. Enjoy!

Positive attitude!!! (at least the roof isn't leaking!)

@Kendor, dead or behind bars.

@Larissa, time to migrate or hibernate.

@Anonymous, any snow in Stowe? I know Stratton got a bunch.

Also loved this FB comment I received: "It's the Nightmare Before Halloween!"

Here in the FAR North it's supposed to be 6-12 inches... I only hope not TOO many trees fall on power lines & houses!!! ARGH!!!!! (What's the "treat" part??)

Pretty crazy. Meanwhile, it's sunny and pleasant here in Seattle. It's not too late to move out here, J.! ;-)

Move to Southside VA. We had a dismal swamp fire, a hurricane and an earthquake...all within a short time frame. Swamp fires burned most of the summer, then an earthquake happened on 8.23 and Hurricane Irene on 8.27. Yay.

Like the Earthicane or Hurriquake or whatever the terms were. LMAO. But hello, I still love Virginia. One of the most beautiful states, ever!
