At Least it's not Halloween

My backyard when I got home today

The levelest area I could find without walking to0 far into the yard
5 3/4 inches

This is about half of what towns just north of me have and areas of the mountains have over 2 feet. It is snowing harder now and we are only half way through this 36 hour major winter storm
All day long I have been hearing at least it's not Halloween ( it is supposed to be in the 50's on Halloween) and maybe it's a good thing the Rockies didn't make it to the World Series (we really don't believe that do we?) and we need the moisture (I know we do and someone says that every time we have a big snow).
I am not surprised by snow in October. I have lived here all my life and have seen snow in every month ( the snow July and August was in the mountains), but I just hope this isn't how the winter is going to be.

Isn't it crazy. Schools are closed here tomorrow. I went out to knock snow off of branches and got a head full of snow. There have been some snow in Oct. But I don't remember it being this much this early. Oh well.
