There was some funky banding too. Norfolk only managed 5.1" of snow at 1400ft... but places at 800 or 1000ft about 15 miles south in Litchfield County had about 6" or so. There was definitely some mesoscale features beyond orographics. 

Did you get totals from Union or Ashford?

Did Kevin say TollNd has had 7 snow days?! That seems a little ridiculous for a seasonal total of a hair over 30”

I had a delay and my school had almost zero.  I was glad since it gave me a chance to snowblow but  a bit of a waste.   

With the forecast it was understandable though

Wachusett reported 2inches on FB. I would have thought they would have at least matched your total

That's about right, I was in Princeton today and there wasn't much. Holden did a little better and plows were out. Really wacky totals so close to each other.

I’m sitting at Wachusett now overlooking deck rails by the snowmaking pond.  Looks like 4”

Higher elevations in town probably did better, passing the town center on 31 the snow looked a little deeper but where my appt was on 140 there was about 2"

Cleaning the snowboard was interesting.  Dry fluff to hard frozen crust. Had to scrape it off. These are the type of days at the ski area you wait 2 to 3 hours for the snow to dry out and mashed potatoes turns to powder.

2 days in October due to power lines and trees down all over. 1 day in extreme cold when buses wouldn’t start, and 4 snow days. The snow events have all been poorly timed from school perspective

There is no reason why you cancel school for 4.5 inches of snow. None. I know you had five but there wasn’t even 5 inches by the time we had to make that decision.

The story on today was it was already a scheduled half day. So they couldn’t delay as high school would have been in school about 45 minutes lol

I can’t recall ever missing school to wind or cold. I can’t remember more than 3 snow days either. Also my school rarely ever delayed. I could probably count the amount of times in 12 years on one hand. Snowflakes these days...

 I see I guess. It just  seems like some strange decisions come from that town. Usually the call is made by 5 AM. I’ve noticed you guys have been pretty late to the party sometimes.

Did you walk to school in knee deep snow, barefoot?

They make the call internally by 4:45 am, and we get the phone call and email by 5:10-5:15. I’m sure we’ll end up with about 10. They are saying some or all of Napril vacation will be taken away

The high winds and downed trees got me. It really is never that bad. That is interesting.

10 29 was bad from a tree perspective. You can really see the carnage in spots with the cement snow. Roads were closed everywhere

 Nah...my mom was a snowflake and would let me stay home if the roads were bad. 1990s TWC all day during a snow event FTW.

Lol. It's all about our litigation society. Everyone did see that school bus vid from the ice? That kind of scares the crap out of peeps. More and more schools are now doing snow days requiring online learning tasks and homework.
