First snow

The Chicago area had its first snow of the season today (Wednesday). It was cold and windy with drizzle part of the day. The drizzle finally turned into light flakes mid-afternoon that provided an ever-so-light dusting of snow.

I heard yesterday that the average first day of visible snow in the Chicago area is October 30th. Seems like the first snow comes too early, but it was really about three weeks later than average.
