    2.25" here last night. Light snow/flurries on and off all day, nice wintry feel. The stake is now at 20", and it's a VERY solid snowpack. We went into the woods to tap our first maples and it's incredible how it feels there's only a couple of inches of snow on the ground, when in reality you see things sticking out of the snow and realize you're standing without sinking on almost 2 feet of snow. Pretty cool. I wonder how much, if any, will be left by the end of the warmup...
  2. February is upon us - pattern change is in order

    We've had several days in the 40s to near 50 and even a couple of above freezing nights and I still haven't been able to melt the driveway, and the stake is still at 17". We may be down to patches in the valley bottom but I'm pretty sure the groomed trails will be fine, especially the man made stuff

    Moderate snow, eyeing about half an inch so far

    Just got my new snowstake and the snow is still soft enough to stick it in. Put it in a nice sheltered spot that I can see from my office window. 17" depth. Thanks Gene for the suggestion! Now I can watch the snow go down to nothing by the end of next week lol

    Snowing here too

    Lol I was going to post the same observation - I also drove down to Boston! Could've given you a ride. Amazing to leave home at 12F and arrive in Boston at 48F. Also very cool temp profile coming back - foothills in the mid 30s, and low to mid 40's from Franconia Notch northward.

    I'm a newbie at sugaring but I thought you were only supposed to tap once? Isn't it too early - ie, you get a couple of days now and then can't tap again in March when it's really flowing?

    It's one thing I hadn't realized when moved here. Love the climate of Bretton Woods but sunny days are really rare in the winter, which is a bit annoying. The summer is definitely better but even then, not nearly as sunny as nearby North Conway or Littleton. The flip of it is that they feel like a furnace every time I'm there, and I don't really like the heat

    This weekend busted badly here. The 3-6” that was in the forecast turned into low to mid 30s all weekend with some occasional drizzle. Rather springy. Would actually have been really enjoyable had it been sunnier! I know, I know... blasphemy. Truth is, I love winter but if it were to end today I’d have no regrets. I’ve already seen as much snow as I did in my first winter in Boston (95-96), so how can I complain? But the snow is still deep and the calendar says mid February, so I’m pretty sure it’s not over...

    What is that??? Looks ominous

    Not much here either. 3/4” overnight and just clouds and an occasional flurry now. Is this the beginning of JSpin’s catchup?

    Stunning pictures, as always

    Back to moderate snow

    I think it all depends on the pattern. If we keep getting a good number of coastals, we'll come up ahead. With upslope, JSpin will be ahead. Very close, though! I'm at 110" with today's storm. Also curious to see where we end up in total. Last year was 175". Bretton Woods claims "200+ average" which I don't buy.

    Measured 8.75" this morning, which includes compaction (it was 8" last night and it snowed moderately overnight, the car had a good 3" on it) - so I'll go with 8.75" for storm total. A few flurries now (so much for my bluebird day lol)
