Snow has ended here for the time being but no complaints about 11.6" and a 14" depth or so. That is deep winter in Winooski.

What kind of depth were there in Feb '15? We all know we were fringed on the biggies, but im sure it was still some deep winter.

I can't really stick a ruler in the ground right now because the bottom 3'-4" that has stuck around since the beginning of December is so rock hard it would snap the yardstick lol.  I think we have somewhere around 18" - 22" before any settling today.

Ok, Feb 15 was better down here, snowfall wise and depth wise. Depth peak was 29" which is really impressive for my hood which is not great at retention.

Still 2 weeks to go in Feb still though

Foothills CAD FTW - death to upslope but great for pack, especially in the woods.  I've had 11"+ LE since Dec 1, and all but 1-1.5" is still on the ground.  The 2" sleetbomb in late Jan left a crust I can walk on - made roof shoveling dicey Saturday.  However, somebody in eastern Maine must be ahead by now, or will be when this event is done.

This is why I hate wind. 

Upslope doing its thing today, very nice snowy day. A couple of inches since my last cleanup mid-morning.

Is that a single stage snow thrower?  That won't do in snow country.  You need to up your snowblower game!

This is nuts.

Around 14" total at the base with 40" on the ground.  Still snowing lightly.

Deepest snow I've skied in a long time.  

What is the depth up top?

No it's a 2-stage, but no match for a 5' drift. We have a snowplow (driveway is 1/3 mile), but I need to keep a path to the downstairs apartment clear, since we rent it out. The issue is the entire system - as I've discovered, the front of the house (where the snow stake is) is nicely scoured by wind, so THAT is where the path should be. We'll do some landscaping this summer and make an actual driveway to the back door, so that we can use the plow. The area behind the house is just too prone to drifting. 

 

Went for a walk in the woods, found a stake that I had placed in the summer - the snow is just about 3' deep in the woods. Keeps snowing moderately but it's incredibly fluffy ,so doesn't really add much in depth

Still snowing lightly with a fresh few tenths in the past hour or two.  This is pure cotton candy at this point.

Town actually looks as good as it has since 2010-11 winter.  I had 23" for a depth this afternoon...that'll settle out though a bit.

This storm felt like 13-15:1 ratios...like 0.8-0.9" liquid for 13".  Mountain probably had 1.1" or so, makes sense based on what models were showing for QPF. 

I think models did well with QPF, we just got an extra boost from good snow growth in that banding last evening.

Kind of pointless snow depth as a lot of it is from snowblower, but I think we've surpassed 2015 with total snow on ground. Getting harder to clear in front of garage. Wife and I posing for some shots. For reference, I'm 6'1".
