  1. January 16-18 Threat

    Ralph i liked what the euro showed at 0z and It wouldn't take much more of a tug west to enhance qpf from coastal component. Long shot in this progressive regime.
  2. January 16-18 Threat

    Was busy painting all day and just now read the six pages in the mid Atlantic forum . I thought it was a good sign they filled 6 pages since this morning. Evidently not. Those poor guys are really getting jaded. Let's hope the interior scores soon.

    Same drift from outside of building.
  4. January 3-4 Noreaster Obs

    Figured I'd include an image from our local high school where I teach. This is from yesterday when I went in to take care of my aquarium animals. There was a similar drift here after Boxing Day 2010.

    Hey Wayne Not too shabby being at climo on Jan 4. I think we get a good period in Feb. more STJ. Thanks for your reports Jeff
  6. The 2017-18 Ski Season Thread

    No photos but rode Jay Peak today and yesterday. Groomers were good especially early in the day and the woods were nice all day both days. I can't say there was powder or really fresh snow anywhere, but I was pleased with 100% of the terrain open and the glades holding up to traffic today. Seems the rain/ frz rain last week put a crust layer in the woods and only 5-6" newer snow in top. It made for tricky turns in untouched areas. They ran all lifts today due to light winds and temps slightly above zero. Yesterday and likely tomorrow will limit summit access. Not bad for a holiday week. Never more than a 2 minute wait for a lift due to cold.
  7. Long lasting intense Cold for New England

    Checked in at Jay Peak. Coldest temperature our car read was -16 right at the base of the ski resort about 45 minutes ago. Warmest we saw all day was zero just outside Ludlow. We drove up Rte 100 during the day today. Looked like upper mountain was closed all day today due to wind chill. Maybe less winds tomorrow.

    Don't worry I hunt and surf in the winter. I'm used to miserable cold. I just wonder at what point do they delay the lifts from running? I noticed at Kmart almost 2 years ago that they delayed opening until 10 or 11 due to severe cold. I think wind chills were near 60-70 below. That was when NYC went below zero first time since 1994. Calm and minus 20 is ok for me.

    Well I'm grateful that the grinch cutter turned out to be just a glaze. A net snow gain for northern ski areas. I think today underperformed up north but I'm happy with good coverage and off piste options.

    Yup thanks and I'm sure that will be the popular spot. Can't imagine the heating bills to keep that running. I doubt she will ski. If the lifts are running I will board. Spent a week in Canada in early 90s during cold like this. One night it was -40 and that is still the coldest weather I ever experienced. It's all about layers and keeping all skin covered. Pres weekend 2016 at Killington was a good match. I rode all day in sub zero cold. Between the water park and spa she should be ok.

    My wife and I are headed to Jay Peak this week from 12/28-1/1. It was a bit of a last minute trip booked a few weeks ago. She wanted to go to Mexico lol. Anyone know any good divorce lawyers? Ha ha. At least the slopes won't be crowded. I keep telling my wife it's a dry cold.
  12. NNE Fall Thread

    Thanks I know how the holidays can get. It's like July 4 weekend here. Since I'm a teacher, I have few options. Waterbury sounds like a good possibility. Thanks PF!
  13. NNE Fall Thread

    Anyone have ideas for my wife and I to spend 4-5 nights in either Stowe/ Waterbury area or White Mountains during the Christmas holiday week. She no longer skis but I snowboard. I know both areas have lots to do for non skiers. I don't need to be on the mountain just centrally located to hit up a few slopes. I figured this could be a good year for an early start to the season. Any suggestions for a particular property would be appreciated.

    It's got that nice Ansel Adams looks around here.
  15. Dec 9th snow

    Just drove back to cape May from philly. Nothing until mile 20 on GSP and then steady snow from there south. Our car read 32 most of the way but dipped to 30 just south of CMCH until the west cape May bridge. It read 31 at my house. The bridge had slush and snow in spite of salting operations. Trees and bushes starting to bend from weight of snow.
