Saturday October 29, 2011:

There's a major snow storm occurring right now in the NE. A heavy wet snow is falling and dozens of trees are being felled in the area. My neighbor's apple tree has just split and barely missed my vinyl fence. Sporadic power outages of short duration are occurring every now and then. I also heard several loud thunder claps while I was out shoveling. In all my lifetime, this is by far the earliest I have ever seen snow in New Jersey. The next earliest snow was a minor inch or two back in late November of 1999.
Very strange weather we've been having lately.http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_eek.gif I'll post some pics later.

We usually get the heavy stuff later on in winter. I've never seen any snow this early. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/blink.gif

Typical fall weather for us.

I'm sure it makes your job fun.....

The ghouls and goblins are going to need snowshoes and longjohns for trick or treats.
Mother nature says..Trick!
The skiers and the resorts get a treat.

The Weather Channel is calling this storm a "Historic October Noreaster". Two million plus, without power. Nothing typical about this one.

Nobody mentioned it, but did anyone notice (in the pictures) that the trees are still green and loaded with leaves? http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-surprised.gif

Not sure why, but it just does. Anyway, all those green trees actually should've been completely turned or bare by now. I think it might have something to do with all the rain we had this season. Must've kept the sap thinned enough to nourish the trees beyond their normal turning time.http://www.freesmileys.org/smileys/smiley-confused005.gif

I don't know about Jersey, but CT got rocked by it, all the extra weight from the leaves and then add the 6-20"(in some parts of NW CT) we had almost as many outages as Irene.....glad I live on top of a hill on the same grid as the school and hospital....just sayin location location location
