Yet Another Oddball Alaskan Contest

Here's the deal:

Guess the date of the date of the first snow that sticks for the duration of winter in North Pole.  Snow that sticks overnight but melts off during the day doesn't count.  This is for the official unofficial start of this year's snowpack in my backyard.  @Far_North_64 sits a little higher so he'll probably get snow before I do.   Official results are what stays on my back yard.  Contest will run through Oct 15 unless it snows before then.   Your first guess sticks and just the date.   Ties broken by whoever picked first.  Closest either side wins if no one guesses correctly.  

Winner gets a Santa Sampler.

    Now this is not the end of the cigar. It is not even the beginning of the end of the cigar. But it is, perhaps, the end of the beginning of the cigar.

    Wow!  I got lucky!  We were in the 90s all week last week so it seemed strange picking that date even with the distance away...
