    Yes on my to do list. I'll get to it tomorrow!
  2. NNE Winter Thread

    Haha sure. Here's a couple. I like the truck one; shows the depth nicely
  3. NNE Winter Thread

    I can't say I remember ever seeing so much difference between south of the notch and north of the notch. There's a pretty pedestrian snowpack till you get to Lincoln, and then it goes up really rapidly through and north of the notch. Not sure my driveway can handle one more storm lol... but hey, I can always snowshoe.

    2 more inches overnight
  5. March or BUST! - Pattern & Model Discussion

    My yard is at about 39"... hard to tell because it only goes to 36" and it's completely buried. I just see the top poking through
  6. NNE Winter Thread

    Replaced with a newer image of what the front yard looks like in the summer. Yes, let's bury them! Although we are at the point where it gets really hard to add depth. Last night's 6" essentially made no difference! We are at 166" so far this season. If it keeps up, we actually may have a shot at 200, which Bretton Woods claims to be the average snowfall. It's pretty impressive considering the mid-winter stretch we had...

    Thanks! 31” storm total so far. And still coming. Interesting factoid. Last year we had 28” from a combination nor’easter/upslope. It seems that there’s something about this date lol

    My picnic table
  9. NNE Winter Thread

    Over 36” at the stake
  10. March 12/13/14 Blizzard/Winter Storm/WWA etc

    Over 36” on the ground. That snowflake thingie is the top of my stake
  11. NNE Winter Thread

    Greetings from Orlando! Looks like I'm missing quite the snowy stretch at home. Stake is up to 21" of depth. Gotta say, the 70s here feel amazing, though!

    Strange weather pattern today. We are in the clouds with on and off flurries and Mt Washington is in the clear. You don't see that very often.
  13. NNE Winter Thread

    As the song goes, "It must have been snow, but it's over nuh-how" Over to some very light snizzle here, so looks like that 1/3" is all we'll be able to muster from this "storm"
  14. NNE Winter Thread

    Steady light snow all morning here, but only 1/3" or so of accumulation so far. Rather wet.
  15. Blizzard 2018 Take II: The Firehose

    Light snow all morning here but temp is 33, so not a whole lot of accumulation. About 1/3" so far
  16. NNE Winter Thread

    Just saw that. Might be flying down to Orlando late next week /weekend so it's probably going to be a blockbuster lol
  17. NNE Winter Thread

    Agree, this snowpack is ridiculously durable. Amazing to walk in the woods and realize you're still on top of logs etc buried underneath. Went out for a few runs this morning and the conditions were awesome. Last year March was very snowy - with a 25" storm mid-month. Not starting so well this year, but I wonder where we go from here. I'm surprised by how absent the upslope has been... I would think with a storm like this we would at least get some upslope afterwards, even if we don't get it, but I've seen no mention of it. Is there anything at all to track for us northerners???
  18. The 2017-18 Ski Season Thread

    Indeed! And if you have time stop by and say - I'll be home with the kiddos!
  19. Not sure I would worry about that. Probably overdone as we've noticed for my area in SWFEs
  20. The 2017-18 Ski Season Thread

    Great point. The scenery has also been stunning with the deep blue ski and Mt Washington all covered in snow.
  21. The 2017-18 Ski Season Thread

    I didn't get to ski the last 2 days but I've heard from some of our guests that the conditions were actually surprisingly good! Bretton Woods has very easy terrain, so you'll be able to ski pretty much the whole mountain. The trails between the Bethlehem Express quad and the Zephyr quad are among the easiest; "in between" is one of my favorites and a but less popular so it tends to have great snow. You can also do Two Miles Home from the very top (Rosebrook quad); you'll get some killer views but it can be a bit icy. Off of this trail you can visit the Mt Stickney cabin, which can be a blast on a beautiful day. You can grab a soup, a snack and a beer and hang out for a whole; on a nice day there's always people hanging out outside playing corn hole by the outdoor fireplace, and it's really fun. Reminds a bit of the small chalets you'll find skiing in the Alps. ENJOY! And don't hesitate to contact me if you need anything!

    Conditions are depressing at the moment. Hopefully we get some snow but it's not looking too hot
  23. Moderate to heavy snow here with some sleet mixed in. Haven't measured - it's quite windy too so I'll need to find a good spot. It's just blowing right off the deck
  24. NNE Winter Thread

    29.8 and sleet. Seems like it just doesn't want to snow these days! Down to 8-10" of snowpack, although places as close as Twin Mountain are pretty much patches. Also almost down to nothing around the hotel, although that area is extremely wind scoured so not a good barometer
  25. NNE Winter Thread

    Definitely heading down
