I'm dreaming of a white... Halloween?

First snowfall today.

This may not really be a big deal to those of you readers from Wisconsin or Canada.

But those in the Tri-State area may sometimes hear the New York radio stations refer to "north and west of the City" as the area where the bad weather hits. That's where I live.

And thus, we get winter a little sooner than many other Jerseyans. Like today, when it rained in Newark. And we had 3 inches of snow on the ground when I headed out into the Sussex County afternoon.

The last 35 minutes of my daily 50-minute commute took 35 minutes.

The first 15 took two hours.

That was fun.

Having spent most of my life in the New York metropolitan area, I've always wondered who those mythical "north and west of the City" people are. Now I can say I know one!
