Just joking, plenty of snows coming up.  I know every time I leave here in the winter we’ll get a storm.  My few March vacations in the past 5 years have corresponded with some very large events lol.

Oh yeah, that’s a weenie rule for sure. Almost as certain as the snowblower rule. LOL

How does an area like Pittsburg do in typical winters? I have looked at some data and it seems like they miss most of the upslope?

No they get crushed. They are a big upslope area. The land to the NW is flat in Canada and then you smack into 2-3K mtns.

I know without a doubt if I schedule a western ski trip, it will absolutely puke snow here and correspond to high pressure out west, ha.

Would have been nice to get more of the VT crew into it, but they’ll have there chance soon enough I’m sure. Good first event.

John’s Weather is or was a great website that had great obs in that area. I think he’s gone now though. They’ve got be 200” a year. Snowmobiling hot bed.

Ok I haven’t ventured up that way yet. A guy in Berlin told me it’s really remote up there. Very few people and pretty run down. This was a guy who lives in a double-wide in Berlin saying this mind you. LOL

Yeah, just glad to get the first mountain snow of the season even if it was only 1-4" and up real high.  I just went higher into the sky to find the snow and mreaves drove to the snow, so we are doing our part to get to winter.

I love the first snow of the season on the hill, just such a satisfying feeling this evening having wandered around in the snow for several hours.

Looks like he’s still there. I thought I heard that he was done. I was probably mixing it up with the Cole’s Pond guy here in VT.  That was always a great web cam to watch for snow. 2200’ in the northern Greens. Lots of snow. I’ve seen 4’+ on the ground while snowmobiling in that area.

I think someone is continuing that website. Let’s hope!

It is remote. I don’t think there is electricity past first CT lake according to Wx2fish. But, it’s a big snow mobile mecca and they get tourism. You have some places to eat and stay.

For civilization you cross the river into the big city of Canaan, VT. You used to be able to get to Sherbrooke, PQ easily enough but who knows when that will be available again.

I'd have thought the temperature would have dropped faster tonight with the snow cover. Got below freezing quickly but it's still only 30F. 

Cool to see the snow sparkling on the deck with the lights shining. Not used to it. Almost exactly 5 months since we last had snow on the ground.

32F here. 

A couple final photos from 4kft this afternoon.  Alex probably has the same amount of snow in his yard after this one, lol.

Yes, my brother will continue to maintain the website. He owns First Lake General Store, FKA Treats and Treasures. I believe the equipment will remain at the original location but he will be taking snow measurements from his backyard across the street from the store. I'll be his "advisor", as much as I can do from a distance. Hopefully the transition will be fairly seamless.
