***Secret FSR Fender guitars? Yes, they exist, and they're right here

snow in october

As I write this it's a balmy (as in balmy-for-Tampa) 78 F outside right now, and it's been gray-ish pretty much all day today.

Well, that's not how it is in the Connecticut town I grew up in. A friend sent this - today:

That's right - you're seeing snowfall in October. That's something the region hasn't seen since 1978, which was a year that one of the worst winter blizzards ever happened. I was only 3 years old then, and I can still remember it.

Yeah, snow can be pretty, but also deadly. While I made it a point to winterize my car really early (thicker wiper blades, snow-formula washer fluid, purchase of new ice scraper and can of de-icer, etc.), I can pretty much guarantee absolutely nobody up there was ready for snow this soon.

Projected snowfall inland is supposed to be somewhere between 2 to 5 inches. That's not a lot, but enough where you'll see a bunch of fools driving around with bald tires on their cars bashing into everyone else; of that you can be certain.

What makes the above photo just plain weird is that the trees still have leaves and they're not even fully turned yet.
