  1. -13/-27. Deck popping loudly
  2. I eventually won the battle just dumping salt and taking an axe to it breaking it into pieces
  3. I made the mistake of letting that accumulate under the roofline of my garage my first year here. First time it rained, all the water coming down from the roof channeled right into the garage, where it then froze solid. Took me weeks to get rid of the dam, and had a frozen garage all winter. Not doing that again!
  4. Our low was a very benign -0.9 - here too, though, fine light snow all night so no radiating at all
  5. Time to bring this baby home to NNE where snow belongs JK you all deserve some too
  6. Enjoy your first subzero snow this morning! I personally don’t care for these temps. Keep in mind, in a normal year subzero morning are pretty much the norm... but we’ve gone through that
  7. There are definitely differences, usually not significant. The entrance to Crawford Notch - the 1-2 miles of road around the Highland Center is the most prone to upslope, and it’s often more intense there than Bretton Woods proper. Coolest weather phenomenon there though happens occasionally in the summer when moist cool winds funnel up the notch and create clouds that look like are getting “puked” out of the notch. Can be really scenic.
  8. Just got back from Harts Location. Got caught in some sort of snownado in Crawford Notch. Scary drive! But another nice snowy night here too
  9. GYX AFD doesn’t even mention the NH mountain areas lol. Red headed stepchild
  10. Speaking of which, suddenly it went to moderate/heavy snow with big fluffy flakes
  11. I think that’s a great point. Growing up near the Alps in Italy, the Alps had great snow but not frequent at all. Patterns there can be very stubborn - you can have a 2 week period that brings 10 feet of snow, and then nothing for a month. But everything is above 3000 feet so the snow preservation is usually great unless you get what they call “Phoen” which is a downsloping wind from the north, that can wipe out a deep pack in no time. Here, while the East Coast is famous for its ice, upslope prone location actually have really good snow quality because of the consistent refreshers. I haven’t counted but it seems like we have measurable snow at least 50% of the days. That keeps surfaces nice and fresh, and trees covered. Great for skiing and so scenic!
  12. I’ve really stopped caring about epic. I’d rather have these great, prolonged 2” a day patterns than the heartache of coastal cutter no cutter etc etc.
  13. Was not expecting such a snowy day. 2.5” new
  14. 1.25” overnight with a nice steady light snowfall. I really don’t care much about what this upcoming storm does, just give me a nice upslope flow after it and I’m happy! We have opened up most of the glades with the upslope following the last storm. Sweet pattern.
  15. Btw 2.4” today and light snow at the moment. Skiing was amazing once again.
  16. So much uncertainty, don’t get too vested at this stage!
  17. Lol only in the NH mountains in the winter?
  18. The never ending sunshine blocking flurries continue here
  19. Just saw this picture on Instagram, really shows how localized upslope can be on days like today
  20. Back home from Conway. It still amazes me to experience the difference in sensible weather that the upslope areas create. North Conway had pretty thin cover and looked almost spring like. Sun was out, and you could even see mount Washington. You'd have no idea that Bretton Woods was in the snow and clouds all day. Driving up, you get into a few flurries starting in Hart's Location. Once you get to the 2 waterfalls just before the AMC, it was moderate snizzle and snow covered roads (and it's that way till my house). Just amazing. 0.4" added today - so very light stuff
  21. Came down to Conway. Nice to see sun after over a week! But speaking of not epic... There is so little snow here for mid winter. Crazy for the MWV.
  22. Geez. We're really the only ones not to see the sun. Endless snizzle
  23. Look at that blue sky. And in the meantime, it's London gray here with light snow.
