MANCHESTER, NH – If you blinked, maybe you missed it, but as I gazed out my back window at approximately 12: 46 p.m. Oct. 18 I saw white flakes floating through the air.

I grabbed my iPhone and trained the camera on my dark-colored car, so the flakes would be visible.

Sure enough, my husband and Manchester Ink Link Chief Weather Watcher, Jim, joined me and stuck out his tongue to help me capture what I believe to be the season’s first flakes in Manchester.

Since then, the white stuff, although sparse, has been stop and go.
