- Monday it was 20 degrees lower than normal. In the afternoon we got about an inch of snow (which thankfully only stuck on the grass).
- Yesterday it didn't even make it above freezing.
- Tonight, as one website of one of the local TV channels proclaims " We could see one of the biggest November snowstorms ever in St. Louis." It's supposed to start snowing overnight, and they're predicting we could get somewhere between four and seven inches of snow.
All I can say is UGH!
The unexpected winter weather means that we weren't able to take care of the last of the fall yard maintenance. This afternoon there was a solid layer of leaves over the back half of the back yard. Knowing that if they got left there it wouldn't be good for the grass, I decided to run the lawn mower over the worst of the pile to mulch the leaves.
I have never used a lawn mower in snow, but since there was still white stuff in half of the yard I had to push the mower through it. Turns out the mower wheels aren't particularly designed to deal with snow.
