Old Red Beard comes form Erie, Penn., so 3 inches is what he is hoping for (don't take that the wrong way). I'm guessing the first snow to stick will be enough. For the past 4 years we have done a "first snow" round, usually involves copious amounts of whiskey, a snow ball fight, and the fine art of disc tracking.
Guinness Smurf aka Red Beard, arrange the snow to fall on a night I am not teaching. I would hate to miss one of these. Gonna be a good time!
