The first measurable snow of the season fell on my neighborhood overnight. It was probably only a half-inch at most, and it was kind of wet. It didn’t stick on pavement, just grassy surfaces, rooftops, and cars. I had to brush snow off my car before driving to work, although it probably would’ve all slid off the car on its own after a mile or so.

The Detroit office of the National Weather Service is predicting roughly normal temperatures for the winter. As for snow, they expect normal snowfall in the southern counties (roughly from Detroit south) and above normal snowfall north of that. Their report is here but be warned, after the first couple of paragraphs it gets pretty technical. Normal snowfall here is around 46 inches of snow for the season. Not all at once, of course.

And in truly local news… I’m baking cookies.


About songdogmi

I'm a longhaired almost-hippie stuck in the inner suburbs of a major rust-belt metropolis who's thoughtful, creative, and kind of geeky. In exchange for a paycheck I run around in a cubicle maze most days. When I escape, I play music, hang out in coffee houses, dink around on the computer, take naps, and think I should be off in the woods somewhere. Every once in a while I get in my car and drive far, far away, though I've always come back so far.
