It's after Thanksgiving, now it's okay to snow. Snowfalls before Thanksgiving are just plain RUDE! That being said we have had several already this Fall and Halloween usually carries about a 50/50 chance of snow in any year in North Dakota.
Those early snowfalls rarely stick around but one like today's will most likely be on the ground until April. I can't say I'm every happy to see the snow/winter come even though I've lived up North all my life BUT I have learned to accept it.
