The Halloween forecast for us here in Battle Creek may seem a little raw, with wind gusts up to 45 mph and rain mixed with snow.

While we deal with that, the hearty Yoopers are bracing for their first accumulating lake-effect snow event of the season. But, of course, they're used to it.

Mlive reported Thursday that as much as 5 inches of snow will likely pile up in some parts of the U.P. today.

Even though the timing might not be the greatest for the trick-or-treaters, are you looking forward to the first snowfall?
