Well on Friday November 7th I finally got some snow here in Minnesota. It was 1.1 inch officially. But it all melted quickly as the ground was still warm. It did look nice though. I can't wait till we get snow and it stays. Especially with the Holidays on the horizon. Have you gotten any measurable snow yet? Do you have any that still is on the ground at all?

I am not ready for snow yet...It was snowing in Chicago, but nothing was left on the ground. I wish to have Indian Summer forever. I wish to know more about this year weather forecast for winter. It is better to be warm.....

We had snow last week, around 1-2 inch of it. I am glad it has gotten milder here again, cause I need to pick up all the fallen leaves first. The weather hear today is for gales (again). It is windy outside and a weather warning for more flooding has been issued. I think if it rains anymore hear, I am going to scream. I hate snow. I love to look at it and its nice for Christmas, but I hate the rain even more. We have had rain from May. I have never seen anything like it. The grounds still swamping. It rained all summer long. Snow would be a nice change. I am glad you like the snow. My husband is like a little boy when it snows. He wakes me up to come and see it. Yes we have had our first snow of the winter/autumn on October 25th. Yes! it was far too early.

Where at in the UK are you if I may ask? I still have a lot of leaves on the lawn. Not too worried about them actually as they aren't that bad. But I will get out this wekeend and do some raking etc of the lawn. Need to do it before the leaves freeze to the ground. I love the snow a lot. Always have and always will actually.

Hi there Grandpa Bob. We haven't seen snow yet here in Romania, but the weather has gotten colder (about 10-13 degrees Celsius in mid day and about 3-4 degrees at night). I hope we see snow this year at least on New Year's eve because for the last few years it was really scarce especially in my city.

Grandpa Bob you can have all of your snow! It looks very nice. I like the snow when it comes and then melts a few days later. I don't like it to stick around. I am not a cold loving person. That is why I stay here in NC. It gets cold but we do not get it too bad. Might have a winter blast every few years. You post all of your snow pics and that should be enough snow for me!

What a nice experience for people in snow laden area. It must be cold out there and people are all wearing thick cloths. I really don't think I can stand cold climate. Winter season reminds us that we are coming to the year end and christmas is not far away.

What do you consider cold? It gets way below freezing often here in Minnesota. And we have been known to get 4 feet of snow from one storm as well. I love it. HAPPY POSTINGS FROM GRANDPA BOB !!~

Wear a ski mask to keep the snow from hitting your face etc. Bundle up in layers to keep warm. One gets used to it quickly. HAPPY POSTINGS FROM GRANDPA BOB !!~

Ok that is something that I'm kind of glad about that it doesn't snow that bad here. I know there has not been any snow yet. Really don't expect any on the east coast unless the weather is really bad. I know that in Minnesota you guys really get snow. I hope that it's not that bad this year though. Sometimes the cold is just as bad and the hurricanes and tornadoes. Have a good one.

hi, grandpa bob! i live in a tropical country and i have never seen snow before. it must be beautiful, huh? i imagine it must be nice being bundled up because of the cold. i think about that when it gets too hot here that i get easily irritated. anyway, i hope someday i can visit a place like Minnesota. take care and have a nice day, grandpa bob!

No snow here Grandpa Bob, but plenty of rain, in fact it has rained incessantly for the last few days, we've had gale force winds too and today it's rained all day long, I think we will be hearing bad news of flooding! With the milder winters snow is a rarity now, the only time I really want to see snow is on December 25th! I can't remember the last time we had a white Christmas, probably as far back as the 70s! But when it does snow badly we can't seem to cope with it anyhow, or any freaky weather for that matter! Wolfie

We got snow last night, it didn't stick around on the ground. It stayed on my car for awhile, it had it all covered. I hate to think about winter coming with the snow, cold and ice, brrrrrrrrrr.
