I don’t like snow. It’s cold, it requires a lot of maintenance and it’s messy. And it’s already started.
I don’t think I can take four months of this, people!
Anyway, the Valley got it’s first dusting last night, and it was coating cars (including mine, at right). Yards were also displaying a fine layer of the white stuff.
This really signals the end of fall and pumpkins and mums and the beginning of winter and cold and snow, because once you bring out the ice scraper, it’s a slippery slope to shoveling your own parking space out of snow mounds and putting a lawn chair in its place to ensure no one takes your spot.
These are the things that we in the northeast think about, people in warmer climates.
Other people were taking to social media to talk about their snow experience this morning. Here’s some more snow tweets from across the region:

And someone after my own heart:
taking time out of my morning to cry because there’s snow on the ground
