Jonathan Gardner is anxious to ride his snowmobile. "I'm looking forward to all the snow coming down so I can be just brappin' all day long," he said.
October seems way too early for some to be seeing snow.
Just ask people at the Creekside Market in Barnes Corners.
"I don't want snow," David Holder said. "I don't want snow until January."
"I think my kids are all hoping for a snow day tomorrow or at least a two-hour delay," Elizabeth Aubin said, "but I'm going to get up at 5 in the morning like every day.
"So if we get it, we do and if we don't, we don't," Aubin said. "I guess I'll have to shovel a little."
By Wednesday night, it had been back and forth: some rain, sleet and snow. It wasn't sticking at that point, but Terry Tontarski says: bring it on.
"I'm looking forward to a healthy snowmobile season this year for the Tug Hill," he said. "Being a snowmobiler, I love it. It's an absolute blast."
