It's only October, but a rare snowstorm has hit the Northeast, leaving 2.7 million people without power, according to Yahoo. The storm worsened as it moved north, with residents in Plainview, Massachusetts receiving 27 inches of snow. Can you imagine getting ready to go to a Halloween party, but you have to miss it because you can't get out of your house?

States of emergency have been declared in New Jersey, Connecticut, Massachusetts and parts of New York. Two ski resorts in Vermont were actually able to open up a couple of trails. I couldn't imagine getting hit with that much snow before November. We should be grateful that we've only had some frost and that's about it.
