    Bummer... I just started some of my body work/rust removal last week, and it's slow going... If winter's coming that quick, I may have to just spray the nasty oxidation with some bedliner and wait til next summer...

    We got some yesterday also.
    About 5 inches.
    People need to learn how to drive.
    Every year the first snowfall is a major mess.

    It's all melted today though

  6. Yesterday we got sun, and the day before that...sun, day before that...sun. Still in the 90's here.
    But here in Phoenix the snow is only a two hour drive away, that way we can play in it, then leave it, come home and still be able to get in 18 holes!

    When it snows here we just close Atlanta till it's gone (2 days most of the time) so we can play in it [​IMG]
    No I'm not joking. We close Atlanta if more than 2 inches hits the roads. It happens about once a year.boy when we got that 6 inches in 93 we were closed for a week!

    We just left Grand Forks (ND) last year... they can have that wind-chill crap! We just have a calm cold up here.

    70's and tornadoes day before yesterday, and woke up to 33 and a powdering of lake effect snow on the grass this morning. I'm never ready for winter. But it IS that time of year. Getting hyped for deer season.
