Today on 91 in Cromwell

lol...you can still see patches of snow on the upper part of the southern facing slope.

Speaking of depths, I was noting this morning that the Staffordville guy was only reporting 3" on the ground.  He's got one of those southern exposure yards and it's just unrepresentative of the area.  I had 8" this morning so it's at least 2-3x what he's reporting.  They'll be snow in the area weeks after he reports it as all being gone.

 My house is completely covered.

That's a deep pack.  Water running quickly down the streets here. Warmth feels nice on the nape. Can't wait for Thursday/Friday.

The mall snow piles around here are lasting into April. Last year the Enfield Mall had snow piles lasting almost into May.

Are you sheltering in place from the nutty loose in Enfield?

Snow pack depth average is around 30" with a range from 26-35". It is a solid glacier below the top 6-8" and you can walk on top of it without ever really sinking in. I have my Davis VP2 sensor suite 8' up and it is at about eye level. I'm 5' 8". The snow pack was about 4-4.5' deep last year at this time, but the pack was much softer and didn't have as much water in it. I've had at least 1" of snow OTG since November 9th, which is now 123 days straight.

The snow blower path to the propane tank is a little over 3' deep. Meanwhile, there's not much left in the valleys. Just a few inches of crap that will likely be completely gone by the end of the week with the impending warm up. No melting here today with a brief high of 33.3° F. Now 28.3° F with light upslope snow.

Nice Mitch. If you're gonna go up you may as well go all the way like you did. 2200ft is a weenie place to live.

 

Are you signed up for CWOP yet? It'd be cool to see your obs on the meso sites.

Always got to get a little jab into us poor valley folk and our out weak retention..:lol: 

Good run for us, NOV to Mid March almost non stop 1" coverage pretty impressive for here. (might have got down to a trace at couple times, cant recall) I'm Ok with full melt out here if it happens

You can see the layers in that pack, dense stuff.

I am PUMPED for this convective season. Sometime this month I'll be eligible for a week of vacation and since I only work until 3 I should be able to get some good chasing in this year. And there are some awesome spots around North Branford/Northford/Wallingford area which have GREAT views. IT CAN'T COME FAST ENOUGH!!!

Been snowing nicely this evening.  Looks like a fog out there with a couple inches of fresh down.  If it's doing this in the valley, up on the mountain must be getting crushed.

On the valley floor... A couple feet on the ground, with a couple inches of fresh so far.
