Can You Believe It's Snowing? Share Your Photos!

Get out there and build that snowman, and then let Patch readers see it!

So, the calendar says it’s Oct. 29. But it looks like Mother Nature wants to jump ahead a few months to mid-winter, judging by the looks of things outside. The snow is falling hard, and it doesn't look like it's going to stop anytime soon.

The National Weather Service (NWS) has issued a winter storm warning for the area, with as much as 1 foot of snow expected in some areas. The snow is expected to fall through most of the day on Saturday and into the evening.

This weekend's pre-Halloween storm is expected to pick up during the Saturday afternoon hours, producing as much as 1 to 2 inches per hour, according to the NWS. Reduced visibility will make traveling difficult, the NWS said.

The weight of the snow could bring down tree limbs and power lines, while temperatures will hover in the upper 30s to low 40s before dropping to near-freezing Saturday night, the NWS said. Winds gusts of up to 30 miles per hour are expected, the NWS said.

What else is there to do on a day like this besides shovel the driveway and make a snowman! Patch wants to see photos of your snow creations. Click on submit your photos, and share your impressions of this crazy autumn snowstorm with us!

And then take our poll, and tell us what you think of this winter wonderland in October.

Thanks for sharing! We can’t wait to see your photos.

Lake Shawnee power is very low. Most electronics won't work.

I hope the power stays on--already see lots of branches hanging low. Enough bizarre weather already!

ts getting bad in belleau woods. One tree down through sunroof of the car. Second tree down sitting on roof on one side of house, third tree down hanging off other side of house and dug into the ground. Can't get it off. Street blocked by another tree and can't get out of the neighborhood. when the wind kicks up, going to be very rough here.

Power's out on hillcrest and the road is blocked. Branches and trees coming down all over the place

James Street looks like an obstacle course! Trees are down all over the road. Take a different route!

Not the day for snowman building. Very dangerous out there. With the leaves still on the trees, topped with the wet heavy snow, no one knows what tree will be next to take a tumble. Stay inside and Pray the power stays on!

I just walked to Kings from Western Avenue, and it is one of the dumbest things I have ever done. Tree branches are coming down all over the place and the roads are awful, and packed. Stay home.

It's NJ, I believe anything is possible at anytime, but we are East Coasters, Tough! - Stay home, roads are a mess everywhere!

Thank you terry romano for stating my exact sentiments. This is no day to be outside. I have 4 trees down on my property with branches from large trees crashing down every where. I went out to shake off the snow from my willows hoping not to lose them as well.
