  1. Agree, but way overdid the warm tongue in VT. It had sleet pushing past Rutland/Windsor counties along the spine of the greens, but I don't think it got much into Windsor County at all along and east of the mountains. West of the spine was another story with downsloping.
  2. Overestimated a bit. Measured 13.5". Light snow currently.
  3. Overestimated a bit. Measured 13.5". Light snow currently.
  4. Okemo, where we're skiing today, is reporting 12-16" new. Seems about right based on what we've got here. They are around 10 miles southeast of here.
  5. We're about 1500 feet, but there are higher points. It's a gorgeous, very snowy spot right in the middle of horse country. This was yesterday at around 6PM when things were just getting started, but we already had about 5" down:
  6. Eyeballing about 15" so far in Reading, VT. Will try to do a proper measurement in a bit.
  7. Here in Reading, VT, we got totally clobbered. Haven't measured, but eyeballing around 15" so far? The cars are buried to the point that the tires are invisible.
  8. All snow in Reading, VT. Looks like about 11".
  9. Snow in Reading, VT. Eyballing 6-7" accumulation. Driving up 91 around 6PM, changover to all snow was near Westmister, VT. Passed 4 cars spun off the road.
  10. Snow/sleet mix in Brattleboro. Roads pretty slippery. Already seen two cars spun off 91. Sent from my SM-G900V using Tapatalk
  11. Been a mix of rain and sleet here.
  12. The warmer mesos (RGEM and NAM) show sleet overnight through much of the central Greens in the Killington/Okemo area but snow in the CT River Valley just to the south east. It also shows snow due west in the lower elevations of NY. This seems to be very counter to climo. Should I disregard this, or is it likely it will be sleeting on Killington Peak while it's snowing in both Springfield, VT, and Glens Falls? What would be the mechanism for this?
  13. Drive carefully! Especially because we'll be behind you .
  14. We're headed to Plymouth (between Okemo and Killington). It will be well after onset, but still optimistic for mostly wet roads on 91 south of Brattleboro during the day.
  15. Did it accumulate on valley highways during the day for October 2011? I don't think it did down here.
