Driving home into Davis this evening I was a bit surprised to see wet snowflakes hitting my windshield. So I drove a few miles up to Canaan Heights to enjoy all snow falling up there. Its good to see the white stuff again

Awesome! I saw it was 36 degrees up at Pointy Knob. I clicked on the Dolly Sods camera to see if it was snowing and the sites down. Thanks for the update.

Before I cked in on DCski I cked on the weather obs up there & thought that there was a chance that some flakes were flying above 4000' & now we have confirmation! MPC is closer to the moisture & with the nearly 4800' top I bet it will be whitetopped tommoro morn....I'll be up there the last weekend of Oct & hope to see a little snow!...Still swimming & surfing without wetsuits down here(se nc)...I'm ready for a change!

Hey Mr. Snowmakers, The NWS Aviation report just put the snow level at 3000' (My house level) They are debating on whether to issue an advisery...I doubt they will with the road temps so warm..Ect...Fun to hear though!

NO NO NO!!! Too early. Thats it now Ullr is ticked off at your presumption!. We mere mortals must not wax or even cast sidelong glances at our gear until a day, maybe two, before you actually hit the hill for the first time. We're doomed, doomed I tells ya.
