Winter doesn't mess around in Alaska

Three days ago, I had a shock when I went out to my car...there was a dusting of snow on it! And on my drive out of town, I hit an area that looked like they got some where between 1/2-1 inch of snow!
What is even more unbelievable is that it's only been three weeks since I was in Fairbanks, basking in the 50's & 60's and admiring the beautiful fall foliage. Now, as I check the current temp in Fairbanks, it's a balmy 16 degrees above zero, here in Anchorage it's currently 33 degrees. I guess I need to break down and pull out the winter coat for on the 10 day forecast, 4 of them call for snow.
