Time to Shovel

It's after Thanksgiving, now it's okay to snow. Snowfalls before Thanksgiving are just plain RUDE! That being said we have had several already this Fall and Halloween usually carries about a 50/50 chance of snow in any year in North Dakota.

Those early snowfalls rarely stick around but one like today's will most likely be on the ground until April. I can't say I'm every happy to see the snow/winter come even though I've lived up North all my life BUT I have learned to accept it.

When I was younger I loved snow. Not so any longer.  I dread getting out in the snow plus my bones hurt from the cold. It is a part of our life as well but not as much as you get up North.

Hi Bob,  Snow timing is definitely unpredictable.  I remember taking my kids trick-or-treating during a snowstorm.  I also remember having a brown Christmas. I agree it think it is best to have snowfall after Thanksgiving - or maybe the week before, as deer hunters in this area really appreciate that.

Morning Bob.

We usually don't get snow until January, or early February if at all.

Good morning Bob. Must say I like to look at snow from afar but not a fan of shoveling or driving in it. Leave that to you hearty Northern guys. Enjoy your day!

Hello Bob - although I am a native Californian, I enjoyed the few years I experienced a different experience on the East Coast.  Different, yes but also exciting to see those "new" things while also realizing there are many similarities.  It's all good.

Hi Bob... stay warm and safe. I, of course, consider snow at any time the height of rudeness!

Rose Mary Justice I'm on board with everything you said.

You are correct Bob Crane that hunters and many others love the white stuff. It is beautiful but I wish it didn't dominate our landscape as long as it does.

I like having some snow James Dray , I just wish we didn't have it so many months at a time.

Moving snow is really good excersize Wayne Martin but these days I leave the bulk of it to my son.

Well said Michael Jacobs . I like adventure as well as long as it's fairly tame.

Nina Hollander if I feel a chill coming on all I have to do is think of you .

Take care with your shoveling. We might have some snow on Wednesday morning in Maryland.

Thanks Roy Kelley . Between a lifetime of back problems and two heart attacks I've learned not to over do it. God blessed me with a great 18 year old son who is 6' tall, 220 lbs and as strong as an ox. I let him do the greater share of the shoveling these days.

Hello Bob,  I am glad that we are high up and close to the sun that it melts fast here in the city.

You do have fantastic weather in the Denver area Will Hamm

Although snow is rare here in TX and melts fast there is still someting magical about accumulation. Living in Chicago until after my second child was born I know what it's like to have long, cold, blustry winters that last for months on end and seems to never stop. Take care when snowing and dress appropriately to prevent frostbite.

I ended up with a cold after doing some snow removal on Monday.

Patricia Feager, MBA, CRS, GRI,MRP if you lived in Chicago then you may have shoveled even more snow then I.

And NOT an aching back Roy Kelley ?

We may need to borrow your son this winter.

I love snow, but only when I go skiing.
