Amazing how some people go bonkers when snow enters the forecast. While some love the first snow as we sit in the fourth quarter of the year, others are bundling up and wondering when the first signs of Spring will take place.

Waking up to snow on the ground on Halloween is definitely not what we expected, definitely more a trick than a treat! Roads could be a little slick this morning with temperatures dropping down into the mid 20's and wind chill values in the teens. As the sun comes up and we climb above freezing the snow will likely melt before any real Halloween activities begin. Bundle up if you are going out tonight as temperatures will drop quickly after sunset with wind chills well into the 20's for the prime Trick or Treat time frame.
