Weird Snow in the Roxiticus Valley

Okay, it isn't even Halloween, the leaves are still colorful on the trees, and as you can see, we have about two inches of snow on the ground in the Roxiticus Valley. We got a call from Mendham Township Elementary School, letting us know that they were not sending the kids home early. Instead, the school officials were hopeful that the road crews would have time to salt and sand and clean up the roads before the school buses headed home at the regular dismissal times. Maddie's first Daisy Girl Scouts meeting was cancelled, and although Randolph Gymnastics is open for business, I decided we were better off scheduling a make-up for our classes today.

I know I promised my loyal Roxiticus Desperate Housewives readers some more photos from the Bay Head Halloween Parade, but first I want to show you this crazy snow!

I saw this storm coming on the news this AM. We just missed it in Toledo. West Va and the east coast got the worst. Freaky!
Hope it's gone by Halloween!

They're saying that this winter will be worse for everyone everywhere. I've heard of early snows in a lot of places already.

Here in central Florida we're 15-20 cooler than we usually are this time of year.

Yes, the weather seems weird this year, we have had snow in the last 24 hrs as well & like you I have been posting about it. We're not used to it this early! Just hope it's not a portent of bad things to come for the rest of Winter :-(

We'll all have to get our winter woolies out early at this rate:-)

I thought it was weird when I saw snow falling the other day as well. At first, I thought my eyes were deceiving me. It didn't stick on the ground or anything, but it was certainly weird to see snow in October. BRRRRRRRR!!!!!!

Oh my Roxy this does bring memories of when we were year round residents in Maine.

I enjoy just being one of those pesty 'Summer People' now so much.

Today we have bright sunshine, clear skies and temps. in the 70's.

It's a glorious day. I hope you all enjoy playing in the snow, and getting cozy in front of the fire place with a nice cup of hot chocolate.:-)))
