That's a little early. Hope that indicates a little milder winter this season.
Yes it is early. It was looking like what we got would melt, but depending on who's giving it, the forecast is for more snow before Oct 31, looks like we're going to have a white Halloween (I hope they're wrong, lol). Yeah for AWD! A milder winter would be nice, but Temps right now are colder than seasonal...a lot colder...eh.

According to our NWS (National Weather Service) our Mid-Atlantic winter is forecast to be a tad on the wet, mild side and you guys in Lower Central Canada are in for downright chilly weather.

Some years ago, ice fishing on Lake Of The Woods in January, it never got above -12F for 5 days. Baudette, MN.

I think that's right on the mark. Lucky I got my fall clean up done the day before this snow fall...took three hours to get it done - living in a forest is nice, but fall means one heck of a lot of leaves to clean up.

I understand your "living in a forest" all to clearly. We live in a heavily forested area - oak, pine, maple, holly - and the cleanup is never done - no matter how much stuff we lug back to the property line.

Here's an aerial view of the house - at the tip of the red marker. We have 2 acres, gravel road.

Right...bags and bags of leaves. We have poplar and birch for the most part, some oak, maple (have an ornamental one (big) just out side my door...Sometimes I scratch my head as to why I planted it, but it sure looks nice in the fall with it's burgundy leaves.

Even with all the work, I would not want to have a house on the open prairie.

I’m totally into snow. If it wasn’t for this damn Corona - and the dictatorship like handling of this - I would have booked two skiing trips already.
I’m in so much doubt if I should go to Val Thorens in France or Cervinia in Italy.
If the Covid carries on I’m stuck with the Swedish or Norwegian hills.

Snowy is way better than soaky wet and mud.

Well, we are currently in the midst of a snow storm with high winds. Ground is covered in snow, and more snow tomorrow, plus rain and snow right on Halloween :(
Even with +1C on Thur and +7C on Fri, this stuff is unlikely to melt very much.

Warm air in Canada now according to the local weatherman, which is good news for us in Chicagoland.

Here's one for ya' - As of right now we have had 71.4" of rain here in 2020 - so far. Think of it - everything you see would be covered with 6 feet - FEET - of water. And December is already at 1.7" on top of that. Our grass areas are so soft it's like walking through sour cream. Forget blowing or raking leaves or even running the lawn tractor/mower. Gonna be a messy winter. Our precip normals are 38" to 42". We do weather and climate reports to our local NWS forecast office. Google "skywarn".
