These are from a very bad winter, 2015


Snow at back door


That's my bird feeder. It's tall.



Early spring, lol. Dead snow/what was left of my neighbor's truck. That's what he gets for going to Florida!

Depending on which way your door is oriented, you very easily could have had drifts of snow blocking it (I didn't, but my car was pretty much completely buried).

One of the local barns had a picture out of big, sliding barn door of a huge bank of snow with a horse standing in front of it, the handler trying to figure out how the heck they were going to lead the horse out (this was in Groton, MA).

I don't know if it is typical North of here, but in the 11 years I've lived here, I feel like that was maybe the worst Winter, snow-wise. Other years have been bad because of ice storms, or wind, or cold temps or other various things, but that is the one that sticks in my mind for snow.
yeah ..2015 was probably the snowiest Winter I've seen in RI. Those 6 weeks were insane .. the snow just kept coming. I seemed like something was falling from the sky every day.

Ironically enough, my friends in Mattapoisett Mass. (south coast) have received more snow, and more power outage days, every year then us in mid Vermont for 3 years running. New England weather is crazy and unpredictable year to year.

The point is, it's not just one storm. It's the length of time. You REALLY notice it at the end of March, or in worse years the end of April / into May. Looking out at bud-less trees, and Barron ground (if not the remnants of black snow), just takes a toll on those from temperate climates.

It's true, some years the storm patterns seem to pass more to the South and coast.

One of my best Winters here, I had the opportunity to go to South Carolina for the month of March. So, just when I was getting a bit sick of the dark and the snow, I went to SC with about an hour longer of daylight and mild temperatures, and was able to ride outside and run around in a t-shirt. I came home just as Spring was ready to start here. I wish I could do that every year. That one month was the perfect amount of time for me at the end of Winter.

Oh for sure. And look at the rainy, cold Spring we are having this year... it's downright dreary right now... and it's June!

Thank you everyone for your feedback. I do believe I need to visit in the winter to be certain but there is something about the East Coast that intrigues me and I love. The history, architecture, beautiful seasons, etc....
