First snow (non accum)

Danbury had its first snow - fell as mix of snow, sleet and rain this morning, Nov 8. Also had wind gust of 28mph during the day. Sleet and snow accumulated on grassy surfaces, along with roofs, cars, patio and patio furniture. Police reported 161 accidents across CT as a result of the wintry weather. Snow came down heavy when I left for Philly around 10am, lightened up around Katonah, but continued on and off even as I crossed the GW bridge.

And with that, the winter blog starts

I don't expect another snow event til around Thanksgiving week, which may have our first 1" accum. I am thinking more along the line of the Dec7-10 for the first plowable snow in excess of 1"

Also of interest, we had our first frost on Nov 1, but it wasn't a killer frost. That happened the next night as temps were in the 20's. It is the latest I could find for Danbury getting below 32.
