Early Winter

Forest Park First Snowfall 2014-11-16 1

We got enough snow to cover the ground on Sunday. I looked at some meteorological information and found that the first snowfall in St. Louis hasn't been this early since 1938. And as I write this Monday evening the weather pundits are telling us we should blow the doors off the record low temperature overnight. 

The U. S. Weather Service says there is an equal chance of warmer or colder than average conditions in the upper Midwest this winter. A private company predicts very cold. Who knows - ask me in April. These photos taken Sunday in Forest Park illustrate the point.

It's hard to believe you have snow already but, I must admit you did capture some very nice photos of the event. You've made inclement weather look very appealing.

Beautiful shots Bob. But I am already not happy with the early winter feeling.

These are beautiful shots...but I still hate snow!

Marvelous shots. You couldn't ask for better weather conditions.

That top photo in particular is a stunner. Beautiful. I hope our winter is mild....actually, I'll be going to Seattle in January for a while, so I will miss it, I hope.

Weather forecasters just get giddy talking about this. I think they get an e#$%&@&*! Whoops! Better not go there.
*On another note: I do believe the Redbirds made a pretty good trade yesterday. You?

I feel cold just looking at these photos, especially the second.

You should be glad that you are not in Buffalo!

Your top photo is like a miracle. Snow flakes and reflections, does it get any better than that? I'd put this one in my top basket.
