I live a few miles north of downtown Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. In our region, it's extremely rare to have a mid-October snowfall. I woke on Saturday morning to unexpected, falling snow that was over an inch across. It was so beautiful that I grabbed one of our high-def cameras and shot a few scenes around my home.
In Pittsburgh, we were lucky. Our snow melted and was gone by early afternoon. The entire Northeast U.S. didn't fare as well with a massive 6 to 12 inch snow storm. The earliest on record.
