It's been insane. I just posted this video of my drive home from the gym on the other thread

How much snow have you gotten today?

I think about 5" but it's been really  hard to measure, it's entirely too windy. I'm curious to see what the resort reports tomorrow, they are generally very very close to my measurements (I had 6.75 yesterday and they reported 7)

In Burlington now running some errands and man it's a different world over here.  Coming from constant -SN to even moderate snow at times in Stowe with a couple feet on the ground to almost breaks of sunshine and patches of grass in the Champlain Valley... the biggest difference is within like two miles of JSpin'a location on 89.  Big snowpack and then you drop to 300ft in the Bolton Flats and it seems like half the snow vanishes in minutes.  

 

What you guys thinking this weekend up there...4" Friday then 10" Saturday afternoon/night?

There’s no snow falling and it looks like it starting to clear out, so the above totals should be the final number for Winter Storm Ryan at our site.

Clouds looked promising yesterday afternoon, but disappeared by 9 PM, after which the temp plummeted - near -10 this morning.  Saw -22 for PQI and -27 at Clayton Lake.  Probably somebody in Aroostook tickled -30.

5.0" of fluff from the clipper here. Depth ranges from 25-35", with an average around 30". Not bad, but not epic either.

Hopefully Sunday night produces. My one worry is that the Saturday system strengthens too much compressing the height field SE out ahead of the 2nd storm, keeping the best snows SE of us. 18z GFS depicts this. 12z Euro would be a nice hit for most of NNE though.

While our weather may be a bit boring at the moment, I started tapping the maples which gave me a really good reminder of how deep the pack is. When you sink, you sink deep! My dog started digging and hit something... I went to check it out, it was the top of my wheelbarrow buried under the snow! It's a bit unreal to feel like you're walking on a surface and realize that the ground is several feet below you. Also cool to notice that the tags that I placed on some trees at eye level are now around waste level. A bit surreal - and not something you really appreciate by just "looking at the snowpack". Took this picture in one of my "breakthroughs". And of course there's more snow under my foot!

Sap flowing well? My coworker hasn’t tapped yet. 

Nope. I started yesterday.  Yesterday there seemed to be some nice dripping with the sun out but it didn't amount to anything, and today there wasn't anything at all. I wasn't expecting much, but I wanted to take advantage of the nice weather to tap. It's coming, one way or another

Looks like they will be getting some snow down south, which is good.  Meanwhile, I spent a good part of the weekend enjoying what we already have.

The first two were taken in the Groton State Forest not to far from me.  The last one was taken near Island Pond, VT  Lots of snow up there and really just about all of VT east of the CPV.  I'd like a few small refreshers to make sure the season goes for a few more weeks.  I guess there aren't any big warm-ups in the immediate future so we should get past my self-imposed cut-off date of March 15th, usually by then I'm ready for the snow to start giving way to fairways and greens.

Event totals: 1.4” Snow/0.07” L.E.

 

The system affecting us right now has been named Winter Storm Scott, and the forecast here does have the chance for a bit more snow, but it doesn’t sound like it’s anything too substantial.

 

Details from the 6:00 A.M. Waterbury observations:

New Snow: 1.4 inches

New Liquid: 0.07 inches

Snow/Water Ratio: 20.0

Snow Density: 5.0% H2O

February totals: 30.1” Snow/3.56” L.E.

I hadn’t posted February totals yet, so I’m passing those along now.  After the robust January, it was definitely a lean February with roughly 75% of average snowfall and a total close to 1 S.D. below the mean.  The first half of the month was just about on track with average snowfall thanks to help from Winter Storm Maya, but it was the second half of the month that fell short with only about 10 inches of snow.

4" of snow last night  brings me to 87" for the season

I'm really happy for the SNE guys.  Really nice to see the Boston area get 12-18".   All those poor peeps down there really needed at least one good snowfall.

Cold week but no big systems on the horizon.  We may be at max snowfall on the ground as the March sun gets stronger daily.  Still time for another big one or two but once we get to this point in the season Im ready to turn corners.

I was watching TWC channel yesterday late afternoon with so many tornadoes on the ground at once.  So to see so many lives lost and property damage.
