New Hampshire’s October Snowfall – The First One!

New Hampshire October Snowfall

Our first snow of the season fell in New Hampshire on October 28th and in my area (the Monadnock region) we got a couple of inches. It was heavy wet snow and with lots of leaves still on the trees – isn’t it still Fall? -branches were heavy and drooping.

When I went out to brush off my car, it was like being in the middle of a snowball fight as the big Oak tree that hangs over my driveway dropped it’s snow bombs when the wind blew! (photo below – I took these photos early in the morning)

My title here says “the first one” because we are expecting more snow today – October 29th. In fact, the forecast is for 6-10 inches with 12 inches in the higher elevations.   I hope all you leaf-peepers have seen the leaves because they will be covered with white soon.…..Yikes – I am not ready for this yet. I still need to get my driveway graded and the house is only partially sided. I knew when I bought this run down place that I had limited time to make improvements before winter hit, but I did think I’d have until around December – November at least!

    Reminds me of the old Bing Crosby standard, “I’m Dreaming of a White Halloween.” On the bright side, at least the Klondike Bars you hand out to the kiddies will stay frozen til they get home.

      White Halloween is right. I grew up in New England and don’t remember Trick or Treating in the snow – ever.

        ” I grew up in New England and don’t remember Trick or Treating in the snow – ever.”

        Exactly! And I lived in Maine 1992-2006. I can’t recall one White Halloween. 😀
