I woke up October 25th and found about 2.5 inches of snow outside waiting for me and my walk to work. I chose not to shave my weekend beard and ventured forth into the arctic wastes of Edmonton.
It wasn't so bad really - all the high traffic areas and asphalt lost their snow and ice quickly.
I'm actually a little excited for winter to come. I plan on making use of the many outdoor rinks this year. I'm guessing that after this little burst we don't have any real snow till mid December.
