February numbers:
The month began with  nice snowstorm, though not nearly as nice as farther south and west, then featured meh - no brutal cold, no significant storms (closest was the 2" sleetfest on 2/16), no major thaws and only a trace of liquid precip.  Lots of storm activity that was (to quote the Bard) "..full of sound and fury, signifying nothing."  4-5 whiffed storms and the 6 that brought snow totaled 11.8".

Avg temp:  18.4   0.8 AN    2021 is the median temp for Feb, 23 yr POR.
Avg max:  28.8    0.3 BN   Mildest, 44 on 2/24; coldest, 17 on 2/9.  (Very few sub-20 highs this winter, coldest was 14 back in DEC.  Only 01-02 with 16 failed to have a colder daily max.)
Avg min:   8.0     2.0 AN   Coldest was -15 on 1st and 10th, mildest was 29 on 2/24.

Precip:  3.15"   0.08" AN   Greatest one--day: 1.32 on the 2nd

Snow:  21.3"   1.6" BN   Biggest storm, 9.5" on 2/2.
Avg depth:  16.7"   2.6" BN
Season's snow:  50.8"   16.2"  BN for the date.  

What's your current depth? I use your reports to somewhat gage how things are looking at my parents cabin on Flying Pond just a hair south of the Mt.Vernon/Vienna town line at about 400 elevation.

19".  Only lost one inch since Saturday's mushy 2.4".  If it's not frigid I hope to be on the ice a few hundred yards north of there on Saturday, by the small island with a nice old cabin sitting on the rocky center.

19" geez.  Your retention is impressive. Its  funny how some of you  NNE folks are rightfully expressing their displeasure with the below normal snowfall and lack of excitement, yet you're still starting off march with 19" of snow, whereas I am probably only a tad below normal in snowfall season to date, yet my pack is reduced to swiss cheese after this latest rain.  It's just a different world up there in the foothills and mountains and the northern portions of NNE.

It is a good spot for retention, for sure, in part because we're in the woods - stake gets full sun about half the day but no big openings.  Also, CAD often keeps us 10-15° less mild than Belgrade/Augusta in SE thaws.  23-year average for today is 21" and tomorrow its 22, tops for the season.  Average for peak depth is 29.7" and the median is 27.  Tops is 49 in Feb 2009 and 05-06 never got past 11.  Only 4 of 23 failed to reach 20".

Including today, as nothing will melt and the top is solid enough to withstand the wind that's making the house creak, we've accumulated 824 SDDs.  Average for the date is 1135.
