"Here" is mid-Michigan (the middle of the mitten). I used to love snow too, till I tore-up my left knee. Since I can't ski anymore, I got no use for the stuff, it's just another PITA in the RustBelt.

Did Stephen King write "The Shining". Stanley Kubrick directed it (I know
that much!).

No snow here yet, on the other side of the pond. Although temperature has dropped from +10 to -2 in the last week, and there was some winds the other day. Of course the strong wind people in Sweden complain about is a light breeze compared to what parts of e.g. the US has suffered.

The forecast indicates some snow tomorrow morning, followed by sun in the afternoon, around -5 C. Saturday will be cloudy and on Sunday there will be a bit of sun and about 0 C. Rather typical weather for mid November.

Well thanks for the offer! I'm sure Computerhell would be worth it ;)
It looks like I will get to Westchester County airport (NY) and then even up to Cleveland a day later, but that will be very tight (just one day)- then fly on to Washington DC area again. Those trips are always the same.
You get back and everyone says 'how was the States?'- and I reply well all airports taxi's and hotels are still there. Never see anything else :/

Back to the weather report, today (Thursday) it was above 0 C again. A bit rain, but more dull fall than coming winter. No real snow is scheduled until earliest Monday.

Yeah, we have 2" now, and it seems to be sticking...(Of course, there was an inch of rain before it turned to snow, so everything is under-coated with a layer of black ice...fun for driving in...).

Sorry to tell you this, but that's Paul Simon's song.

Cause Simon & Garfunkel did "The Times they are changin'" (from their Debut album - Wednesday Morning 3am) though that's about the extent they did from Dylan. ;-)

Cause I forgot to mention that it actually isn't a Simon And Garfunkel song, simply a Paul Simon song durning his solo days.

we have 2" now
On the weather & traffic report for tonight, they warned that the south (!) part of Sweden may get up to 2" of snow and all the traffic problems it can cause. I can see if getting that amount of snow in a matter of a few hours may sound like a lot, but even in the south part people should be used to the concept of sudden winter which just as immediately melts away.

Yaeger was right !!!!!! again . About four inches Saturday,and it was a great day for hunting
:D But it's rained three strait days and all the snow is gone, even the golf course, I work next to is still green,no ground frost yet. Maybe do 9 holes on Christmas .... Won't that be a hoot !!! Make a great christmas card. I think I like this Global Warming thing, save on firewood too....
