    That’s funny, we are coming home tomorrow morning after 5 days in Keene Valley. We lucked out for hiking weather. No days lost to rain. Took our kids up Giant, Porter, Cascade and Indian Head. We brought passports anticipating heading to Montreal if it rained but it never happened. The drought is definitely noticeable up here, compared to home in Otsego County where we have had plentiful rainfall. Lots of dry brown dead grass up here, and the streams are all low.

    Thank you for that explanation re: tracking area in June.

    Steady snow here. Almost hard enough to whiten the porch at times. WTF.

    I'd say the forecast for Sunday into Monday is the ugliest end of April I could think of.......

    This is like Groundhog Day. Every day I wake up and the same 1/2 inch of fresh snow is on the ground.

    March or BUST! - Pattern & Model Discussion

    We bought our house in 2001. We are at about 1650 feet, 70 miles west of Albany. We spent much of our available funds and energy planting lilacs in our yard that year. i can still remember my wife getting up for work on that fateful morning and shrieking in horror. Our leafed out lilacs were crushed under 6 inches of heavy wet snow. We cleaned them the best we could. We had about 25% attrition.

    4F here this morning. Went through the woods to check on our pond yesterday. Big mistake going without snowshoes. A foot of dense snow pack on the ground.

    About 5 inches fresh here. I don't know if any of you cross country ski but these are the best conditions we have had in years. The last 2 weeks have been great, and today is off the charts.

    The 2017-18 Ski Season Thread

    I'm sorry if my post jolted you in such a way that you needed to respond with the F word. I think my comment was innocuous. It snowed. Dry powder snow. They went over it with a groomer and it skied really nicely the following day. I believe the industry term is MGPP.

    Have you ever been to Royal? Small, very family friendly, very reasonable prices. We skied there today, never waited more than 2 minutes for a lift. Lots of nicely groomed powder.

    Yes the precip over PA is solid with a good amount to the west.....I'm not counting this one out, based on the current radar picture.
