    That's pretty impressive for Vermont. Any word on fire in the canopy? It looks like the flames are mostly at ground level, but this could be deceiving.

    Thunderstorm, first of the spring, rolling into the southern Champlain Valley at this time.

    Proximity to the Green Mountains sure made a difference in temperature. Last night in Brandon, it was 44F degrees at 9 pm. Twenty minutes later and 16 miles to the west in Orwell, it was 37F. Winds in Brandon mixed the air, the absence of wind in Orwell kept the cold air in place at the surface. Pretty neat variations.

    23F at 5 pm in the Champlain Valley in April. Yipes.

    1" flakes falling here, and there's 2.3 on the ground. Beautiful mid-day snow in April.
  6. NNE Winter Thread

    Pretty solid snow here in Orwell. 1.7" and still coming down.

    looks like about 3 inches here at the southern end of Lake Champlain.

    That's a terrific quote.

    That's a good species, too. Very firm, never wishy washy with its forecasts. That's interesting that you've never once finished with a snowfall in the 80s. Funny how averages work. And it's also telling about the variability. I had 10-12 inches of snow otg yesterday, but it took a hit with the warmth. I don't expect it to survive next week.

    My super-sensitive all-purpose weather forecasting stick (hand-crafted from free-ranged organic Carpinus caroliniana, $14.99 for one, $20 for 2 on Etsy) tells me that from BTV south, this winter will be at or slightly below normal for snowfall, but above normal for precipitation and temperature. One more 6-8" snow, a few 2-3" events, all before March 21. After that, all rain or mixed precip at best. Dry and warm on April 3 and 4, followed by soaking cold rain from a coastal on April 5 (Opening Day, Fenway).

    Also, vacuum systems and smaller taps allow sugar makers to tap earlier and keep the taps in the trees longer without bacteria invading or the taps drying out.

    Time to tap trees, as the first solid run of the sugaring season is coming up next week.
  13. NNE Winter Thread

    Hit the forecast of 9 inches here. Beautiful snow, all sizes.

    I should have gotten off my lazy bum and done some rigorous snow measuring. As it is, there's 8" of snow on the ice that I just cleaned off yesterday morning.

    Heavy snow, band of 30 dbz on the radar.
