    The 2018-2019 Ski Season Thread

    I wonder what's left up there after the r**n and mixed temps recently.

    The pics I saw from Smuggs this morning were pretty inspiring.

    How does the Crosstrek do in that stuff?

    A 4-5 foot thump in an hour would be insane. I've seen 12"/hr for 3 hours and that was something I don't expect to ever see again, I'd like to but I don't think I will. When you're in the house and it goes from daylight to darkness as the snow goes over the top of the window...

    Yep The wind was pretty serious too and I lost a few of the branches that were damaged, between those and the two trees down that I haven't cut up yet because I'm not supposed to strain myself too much since the December heart attack the backyard looks like a war zone. I had to pull my car out of the driveway yesterday afternoon and I put it on the parking area at the front of my lawn, between the last of the snowbank melting out during the day, the ground thawing and the rain it sunk 4" in and I had to pull it out with my Durango this morning. What a pita that was. Gonna have to go get a new chainsaw and get busy on the trees this week as it dries out then fix the 4 new holes out front. Not going to need the gym this week

    Yeah that was the real deal last night. I had all of the gutters overflowing for a while there. Now the yard is a muck pit. I had to move my car out of the driveway yesterday afternoon and put it out by the street on the front of the lawn where i carved out a parking area a few years ago. As the ground finished thawing during the day and the snowbank melted out it sunk a little bit, with all of that rain it sunk in about 4" and I'm going to have to tow it out this morning. It is completely high centered from one end to the other as it only has 4.5" of clearance. Maybe after another cup of coffee

    I saw 70 on the dashboard this afternoon, actually I saw 68-69 it was my wife that saw it hit 70, in Danbury. It's awfully nice out there right now, too bad the woods are a total mudpit.

    I saw 63 in Wappingers and 65 by KPOU on 376. Yeah the spray from melting snow was pretty significant, used a bunch of wiper fluid today. Heh, brand new tires on warm pavement on some of your local twisties was a bunch of fun today

    What a nice day up here in Julian land. Not much snow left here, pretty surprising considering how much there us in CT. Yup the moths came out at my place a few days ago, so did the spider crickets

    When I was in HS only the football field had lights and up here pretty much none of the fields other than football do. I know that minenfeld said they have them there but it's not common here on the NY side. HS golf practice starts in February usually in the southern conferences. I think girls field hockey is also a spring sport and that would likely be affected and track might be too. I don't need to argue about this it was just my thought.

    Only works if there are lights and outside of LI and Westchester very few school fields are lit, football maybe but baseball fields and tennis courts rarely are and golf courses certainly aren't. While it may not be a thing for a lot of people it is for more than you think and for those people it's critical that those sports can be maintained.

    It looks like tomorrow may get into the mid 50's and so will Friday. As long as it stays dry tomorrow, and it looks like it will, that will feel pretty good. Friday looks like a washout.
