It's Snowing in Wilmette - October 12, 2006

No. It's snowing! On October 12? Yes!

Needless to say, Blame Canada. I'll try to get a picture to share.

Oh, and choose the Legend of Sleepy Hollow by Washington Irving on Daily Lit. I'm reading it now and it's perfect for Hallowe'en--or maybe just perfect.

And speaking of Hallowe'en, even October 31 is way early for snow.

Break out your parka--I am.
Update:I went out on an errand and took some photos. These pictures don't show how cold and blustery it was. I actually had to drive in blizzard conditions for a bit. These photos are are pretty interesting, and likely represent a once-in-a-lifetime sight.

And yes, if you are visiting from a land where it is always warm, the snow is the white stuff.

It is fairly early for snow isn't it?

Balaji, it is the earliest that we have had snow here since they started keeping weather records! That is what makes it such a once in a lifetime experience.
