First Snow in Sturbridge, MA

First Snow in Sturbridge, MA

Today was a significant day in the history of Sturbridge:  The first snow of winter 2009-2010 arrived!  I was working hard in my office this afternoon and looked out the window to see tiny flecks of white drifting through the air.  Very tiny.  Almost rain drops, but alas it was just cold enough to be snow.  Nothing was sticking to the ground, no wicked nor'easter winds, no difficulty driving. But still the first snow of the season.

Many people around town are a bit grumpy about this early arrival.  But I am just thrilled.  Sure, I had hoped for a couple more 70-degree days, but if Mother Nature decides to give us snow, then let it snow!

Snow - it's still magical to me.

I haven't seen snow in October since I was a kid living in Washington.  And that only happened once that I can remember.  I always loved seeing the newly fallen snow.  You're quite lucky, Kathryn.  But, next time, please take a photo and share for those of us less fortunate ones.  Please?  :)

My friend Jesse Clifton had snow in his Fairbanks area in SEPTEMBER! Winter in on the way and we can't stop it! Stay warm.

I think we've skipped Fall and headed straight into Winter.  No complaints here.  I've been busy getting my home office prepared for a long winter.  I much prefer to work out of my home during the cold, snowy winter days.  I'm ready!

Kathryn, there is always a special wonder about the first snow that falls.  It doesn't snow where I live but I remember how I also always loved seeing the first snow flakes that came tumbling down from the skies. Enjoy!

How wonderful - nothing like the the first snow. I love the snow, especially when it hangs on the evergreens. We got a bit longer before we see those days yet though.

I heard that parts of CT got 6 inches!  That's crazy!

Have a great night!

Heather:  I will, I will!  There should be plenty more snow coming, that is for certain.

Eric:  Thanks - I appreciate your reading my blog!

Richard:  Okay, September is way too early for snow.  I love it, but not that early.

Lina:  Wow - that's is fantastic.  It sounds like you are way ahead this year!

Sylvia:  No, "Tropic Shores" does not sound like a snow-laden place.

Lee and Carol:  We have more snow today (10/18).  May be in for a looong winter.

Kathleen:  At least we have not had that much yet.  I am worried about snow days starting before November though.
