  1. Skied Killington yesterday, it was in prime shape, with nearly everything open. Snow surface was excellent, and plenty of non-groomed options available. Visibility was a challenge with freezing mist most of the day, but the skiing was great !
  2. It'll probably start snowing in March.
  3. You know people are jonesing for snow when the Feb thread is at 77 pages and counting, and it's still January.
  4. Sleet starting to mix in with the rain here in downtown Springfield. 34F
  5. @Fozz MRG is a blast. If you ski there you will learn to ski bumps. Also look at Magic near Mt. Snow. When the snow is deep in southern Vt., Magic has MRG-like goods (almost) and a similar throw-back vibe. Here is some mid-winter MRG stoke, just below the summit:
  6. I never liked taking my skis off to board a gondi. Seems so much easier to keep them on your feet.
  7. 1. Octo snow bomb 2011. 98.5 hours with 3 kids and no power. Unbelievable tree and electric utility equipment damage. 2. Blizzard of '78. Lived in Natick, unbelievable snow and wind, also no power (but we had a wood stove) and extended no travel / no school. Honorable mention: Springfield tornado 2011. I wasn't in it but it went 1/2 mile south of my office. Did strip the trees along the river pretty good. But is was nothing like the life altering events of the first two, and nothing else I've experienced comes close.
  8. Only one day over 80 and one night above 60 in the long range IMBY, looks pretty safe to uninstall today.
  9. Cascade is a great flavor and aroma hop, and Centennial is a good bittering hop that really shines when used for flavor and aroma. When I was still brewing, these hops were the backbone of my "house" IPA recipe.
  10. Some 3/8 inch hail outside my office in downtown springfield.
  11. The glass jar over the yellow jacket nest is amazingly effective in today's testing at my hive-y hole. Even though there is a sizable gap at the base of the bowl, they don't seem to be able to find it:
  12. Getting loud in downtown Springfield right now.
