I just thought this would be cool to see what area gets the first of the snow this winter and when other areas get theirs...

When Did You 1st See Snow this Winter Season?

The reason Im putting this topic so early is because Elliot Abrams and Evan Myers both mentioned the possibility of snow showers on their blogs... They said it could possibly be on saturday in the higher elevations!!!
