4 to 6" of fluffy snow already. Rain switched to snow around 9 am. Branches are cracking off and falling on trees that have not yet dropped their leaves. A recipe for knocking out power lines.

Looks like an attempt at a forced soft closure to OWS tomorrow morning with cleaning crews instead of riot police. Although I guess they will need the police too. Starting at 6:00am the park owners will begin to clean the park in three stages, with protesters needing to leave each section of the park during its' cleaning phase. Upon reopening each section the park owners have asked the City to help them enforce the park rules which prohibit laying down on the ground, covering the ground with tarps or tents, storing personal items on park grounds, etc... So unless protesters can sleep standing up it looks like it's over. Just a matter of how quietly they will go.
