Even more in Jackman and when we were having winter harvests at Holeb, about 10 miles to the west, the snow there was a lot deeper than in town.

It is as you head towards the border out of town.

And Jackman, and The County, maybe Calais/Danforth to get the late bloomers.  Moosehead area - my wish list is long.  :weenie:

Back to Pinkham:  Out of curiosity I looked up Diamond Pond.  It's 57 miles N from Pinkham and about 200' higher and an obvious snow-catcher.  In its 13 full winters (98-99 thru 10-11) it's average was 230.0".  In those same winters Pinkham ran 126.7".  Even adding 10" for the "M" in early Jan 2010 and another 10 for 4/1/11 only brings them to 128.2", still 100+ less than Diamond.  Doesn't seem logical to this non-met.

Yeah my guess is Pinkham changed measuring techniques at some point. I agree there is no way they average 100" less per year than Diamond Pond.....though I could easily believe 50-60"....Diamond Pond is one of the best upslope spots in NH.

Missing a few storms at Pinkham is a sign of that change in technique too....they probably measure once per day when they can get to the site whereas previously I'm guessing they were more meticulous.

What bad memories that winter.

I just remember it as the year that Maryland got 70 inches total in 3 snows while in Peacham I got 3 inches total in 70 snows.

Now that I'm up here, I've suddenly lost any desire that I once had to see a repeat of 2009-10 :lol:

Diamond Pond is crazy for snow.  They have the annual Snodeo there where all the snowmobile manufacturers bring their new models for test rides.    That is near where The Balsams is too so if they ever manage to build that resort out there will be plenty of snow.

Plenty of room. At 1st I thought you'd be able to see them. That would suck especially in a rural area like that.

Real first world problems haha.

@TauntonBlizzard2013 This is a good weekend to maybe try and kill your yellow jacket/hornets nest that is in your vent piping for the range hood above your stove....esp Sunday morning where you might be near freezing. The wasps will be useless trying to fly out in that cold. You could probably pop the cap off the venting outside the house and check it out.

But if it's not a big deal, you could prob wait until November or something after several sub-freezing nights in a row probably kill them anyway.

Thanks for remembering. I forgot to mention shortly after I posted about it here they seemed to be gone. I’m guessing the spray I got into it the first time must have gotten more of them than I thought.

Hey y’all. After the discussion yesterday about NNE microclimates I wanted to say hi. I moved to VT last year from PA and bought a house in Hyde Park this past spring. I have been a member of the forums since Easternwx. I spent last winter at my apartment in Stowe and excited to be in my own home and not post the same obs as PF now lol. I attached a crappy google maps screenshot of where I’m at. I look forward to enjoying the cold and snow with you all this year. Sitting at 34F right now.

Welcome to NNE. Nice area, a little further up 100 to Eden and you might have the snow prize.

I’m very excited to get this winter started. This was May 9th just after I moved in and I couldn’t believe it. Can’t wait to learn the nuances of my local and be more active on the forum.  2EF2A1BA-AF07-459A-83D1-39F2D8266216.thumb.jpeg.87e4c1f8b3a9eb43a060e8534e7ae6b8.jpeg
