The calendar may say October
but it looks more like January or
Febraury in the higher elevations.

Snowshoe Mountain in West
Virginia has picked up five inches of
snow so far.

And the winter weather isn't
limited to West Virginia, either.

Steve Smallshaw has more from
Nelson County where it seems everyone's
excited about an early ski season.

GRAPHIC=MLB The Astros had the best home


record in the majors this season, while
the White Sox were the leaders on the
road. Something has to give tonight in
Game Three of the World Series in
Houston, where Roy Oswalt will take the
mound for the Stros against Jon Garland
of the Sox. Chicago leads two-oh and
has played loose despite having little
to no post season experience.
