Have you seen any snow yet? It’s been in the news. It’s on the ground. Certain ski resorts are open. Could it be snow-season already?
The holidays are when snow seems to be in high demand. Yet for many, snow comes even earlier than the holiday season. The usual suspects seem to be enjoying some of this white stuff already this fall. According to snow coverage maps, Montana, Wyoming, Colorado, Washington, Idaho, Wisconsin, Minnesota and some mountains in Utah and California have received snow and kept it on the ground. If you have a copy of the Farmers’ Almanac, you would have seen that four-letter word in many of the areas mentioned for mid-November.
The past two years we have had some snow in the northern section of New Jersey, but this year we have yet to see a flake. In Maine, the Almanac’s home state, there really hasn’t been much, other than the man-made stuff. What about where you live? Have you seen any snow yet? Have you had to shovel yet? Gone skiing? According to the Farmers’ Almanac, there is some snow in the forecast for many areas for the beginning of December.
A few weeks ago we ran a story about how early snow could fall. The answer might amaze you.
