Average snowfall for the month of October in the Denver area is about four inches. Some years we get a monster storm or two, some years (like 2010) we don't get anything. This year we fall somewhere in the middle.
I love winter and I love snow storms. IN THE WINTER. This is pretty, and it's fun. But since I don't get to play in the snow this year, I vote that it could wait until a more appropriate date to stick around. It will be in the sixties by the weekend, so no complaints.
In summary, I think Abby the beagle and I agree on this October snowstorm. Here's a picture. NOTE: I did not pose her. She's just mad I think!
