    SNOW ;ex:) I love winter and the reason we now it is finally here we also woke up to a beautiful hot coal bed from half a load at 9:30 last night. This starts to happen when it gets colder and the snow starts to fly around here. When I walked outside it felt crisp and clear and I could smell a couple others around town using there stove. Right now it is 28F and feelslike 16F with a 6 mph wind absolutely beautiful out. This is a good sign for winter I think instead of a crappy warm nasty November like last year we may actually get some snowfall and cold. It hopefully will get better from here ;)

    Scotty, you know you can't go play yet. Jeesh.
    Pete, coming home from downstate yesterday was a mix of snow/no snow. Snowed last night and we awoke to pretty much the same as you.
    It's been snowing all morning.
    Mackj. welcome to the Hearth. Good luck on the hunt.
