4:10 PM… “I MUST BE LOSING IT!  HAD TO CHANGE THE TITLE OF MY POST.”

The snow started at 6:55 AM this morning, November 4th, 2016, and it’s now 12:55 PM –  and still snowing.  Expecting 1-3 inches and then it will melt later due to temperature rising.  It’s wet!  I kind of goofed up the last image.  Cut the bottom off.

This was our backyard, during the day, on January 8th, 2016.  It snowed that night.  I wonder what it will look like on January 8th, 2017.

Central Illinois’ first snow could come as early as Sunday, December 5th.
