et tu, october?

It's raining. And snowing. And barely above freezing. And I get to walk to work in 40 minutes. Any one of these things would be fine. Heck, any three of them would be okay. But all four?

Oh well. I'll just have to keep reminding myself: no car insurance, no mechanic's fees, good exercise, 10 minute commute....

ETA: Okay, now it's just snowing like crazy. I can't remember the last time we had real snow in October--usually we don't get it until late November at the earliest.

ETA2: ...Aaand now the snows beginning to actually stick to the parking lot. Can't see the road from my office, but I wouldn't be surprised if that was piling up too. We haven't had snow like this in October for at least 20 years. We rarely get more than a couple of storms like this a winter.

global warming, yeah right. that explains the (for us) cool and wet summer, and snow in october, et al.
