    Yes, your right PF. It is pretty noticeable too when I drive into town( middle of the valley)from my place..almost always less snow with any SE/E/NE wind.

    Right, having the Taconics to the west I guess is kind of lucky geological feature. Everyone knows that Bennington can be a pit, but the difference between here and there can be very stark at times considering we are both elevated valley towns around 700-800ft. Obviously no comparison to any East Slope areas. Retention is pretty pathetic even here and everywhere up and down VT on the west side. I mean look at cocorahs up north, Underhill has depths of 5-10" while Jspin is 30" with lower elevation. The best spots valley wise around these parts are 1K+ tucked in against the West slope of greens or East Slopes of Taconis. I marked about where I am now.

    Its a definitely been a pretty clear NW to SE gradient with regards to snowfall across NE. 76" Season to date here which is pretty much close to seasonal average-so I guess that's pretty impressive for mid-late Feb., but the amount of change over events has been frustrating I think I've even had almost constant cover here since Nov--which is almost impossible in the valley spots west of the Greens, so that's pretty impressive with the amount of cutters thrown in.

    Not going to matter in this one i dont think. It's not an elevation event. Warm push aloft is the issue and eveywhere changes over to IP and maybe some ZR. Shouldn't be much of difference between Magic, Bromley, Stratton.

    Got up to 44F here..nice and toasty. Was snowing sideways pretty hard this morning , just some light rain in the middle of town though at lower elevation. A few tenths on the board as BL temps were 34-35

    It is kind of interesting seeing that crazy downslope near Underhill/Jericho/etc with only 2-3 inches, but then BTV area almost 10"

    I saw that this morning and was thinking PF will enjoy that precip distribution....ha. Down here in SVT--I had .93", so not as much as a discrepancy in precip from west slope to east slope. Even the guy in Bennington had .60"--guess thats only half though of the east slope reports Some bigger differences in RUT county with the RUT cocorahs spotters:

    This 10.3" from Manchester isn't even a slant stick, that's a straight drift stick... I had 4.8" at 7am VERMONT ...Bennington County...

    Like PF said, those downsloping winds pretty well modeled in your area and western slopes of greens. Its howling here with mod IP and still little snow mixing in.

    You can see from the map JSpin psoted how BTV clearly highlights the SE downsloping with the 5/6" totals in RUT and Middlebury, but ALY down in SVT is not. I like the BTV map, but extended down into SVT--4-6" from Manchester down through DDH--so pretty much cut those totals in half in SVT.

    Think near 0% chance of 10" here as the map says. 4-6" then some pellets is usually how these play out here. Was out of town all week and got back late Friday night, man what a pack decimation in the valleys from west of the spine to Albany last week. Even piles were practically wiped out near Bennington and Eastern NY areas like Hoosick. Have some open grass patches here too.

    My bad Ginx...your certainly not all SNE all the time, that's for sure.

    Ha. No, I know i was exaggerating a bit there with the disdain stuff--right, its more frustration because of the gradient nature of this winter so far and most of SNE accustomed to KUs appearing from oyster farts from the Atlantic.
