I Heard It Was Out There: Did You See It?

"Did you see any?" The whispers float around the web quickly, across story comments, message board posts, and blogs deep in the nether regions of the intertubes. "I swear I saw it on 66." Mixed between the cold rain, the wind whipping through the trees on a cold Monday morning in October, did you see it? Snow. The whisper of white that brings hope of hot chocolate at home, days without school, and 2 hour non-essential personnel delays. So, did YOU see it?

As both Kevin Ambrose and Ian Livingston were discussing in comments yesterday afternoon, the disturbance passing in the wake of cold front brought a mix of a FEW flakes with the rain, and the hope of a few more lonely flakes with the next cold disturbance late tonight.

It got me thinking, what is the most memorable early season snow you have seen? I remember a cold, late October weekend when I was visiting a friend in upstate New York that brought a coating of a few inches of snow to the ground, the earliest this Virginia boy has ever seen real snow. So, any good stories? Or any good ideas when WE will see our first real snow? Take it to the comments!

And in case you are curious, some parts of the Northeast are expecting over 6 inches of snow this week. Welcome winter.

See our full forecast to see what chance we have of flake spotting in the next 24 hours...
