Yes we lost all of the snow we got the other week. But I think it did help things out in a round about way. Just like the rest of the region, we had a dry season and this melted snow put moisture into the soil. Which will help frost settle in much faster and it also cooled the soil down. Because up until that snow, it was bike riding weather here in Old Forge.

Just two days ago there was people riding motorcycles and today we have 18 inches plus of fresh snow. It looks like it might warm up for Friday. I hope not, as that is the kick off day for Christmas on Main Street here in Old Forge and there's nothing better than a fresh coating of snow to make it feel like Christmas.

Well the first snow of the season is over and we got enough that you could measure it. I checked other area cams this morning and found that it wasn't wide spread. By the way the forecast looks Mother Nature sure flipped the switch. We went from fall/summer to winter in a few days. Here's are some pics from around the area this morning. Old Forge and Stillwater is white, but Inlet by the lake and the hill didn't have any sticking snow.

We have the first snow fall of the season coming out of the sky this morning. It isn't sticking yet, but the forecast is calling for 1 to 3. Sorry about the cams on top of the mountain and the trail working on and off. But in this kind of weather the wireless doesn't work all that well. I'll be changing over to the hard wire setup pretty soon.

This morning we woke to our first frost of the season and the temp. was 30 at 6am. There is a freeze warning in place for us Monday morning again from 2 to 8 am. I'm guessing some of you saw the freeze warning for us. Because the blog visits jumped up for today. It won't be long and we'll be seeing the white stuff again. Some pics from this morning. You can tell the lakes are warm from the steam coming off of them.
