Took this at about 6:30AM, snowed all morning slowed down in the afternoon.
Definately a northern northeast storm. Yesterday's weather is but a distant memory around here.

If y'all get much more global warming up there, you better prepare for glaciers. Stay safe.

25" in the NEK where our place is........my friend is going to make sure the deck is clear so if we get rain at the end of the week we are good to go from a snow load perspective.

Awesome, I do really love winter and massive snow storms.....mid April I'll be ready for some spring

thankfully the Northern part of the state got very fluffy snow. I have 4 ft drifts but there is very little on my roof thanks to breezy conditions.

I don't know what this is going to be like after it rains. I have lived in the northeast and midwest my entire life and this is the first time I'm scared of what nature is going to do to my house and property.

I finally measured against the house, which was a grass patch the day before.....no shovelling and pretty isolated from the wind, and I had 34". I was thinking it would be more like 40". But, I went to Newport this a.m. and all their banks were to my window bottoms and heading back down the interstate I noticed Orleans was mid-window and once I got to Barton; rooftop. I think it's hilarious! I even lost my phone while digging out my car for the plow, which subsequentially got stuck until the big town truck pulled him out of my drive. Didn't even mind walking to town for Mom's cold medicine!

we're very lucky we lost about a foot or more snow with the rain last week
or we'd be up a creek now

If this melts too quickly there could be some nasty flooding...

I think we're having flooding this weekend.........I'll watch my Barton river in the backyard............luckily I'm on the opposite side where it usually floods!!!! Thank goodness!

But, I did sit outside to sunbathe today in shorts; lo and behold 2 damn icicles landed on my head! I came inside cuz I saw the bigger ones that were yet to fall!

Yowch! - watch those icicles, swanstone! You can really get a good tan this time of year with all the snow reflecting the sun's rays. I have a friend who used to work at Jay peak running one of the lifts and he always had a great tan in March - 'Course it was pretty much limited to just his face.

I drove through Richford and Enosburg today expecting to see the Missisquoi River out of control from all the rain we had, but it was still on winter mode. A lot of years during a thaw there would be blocks of ice the size of Buicks strewn all over low lying fields, but none so far this year.

After yesterday's snow my driveway is really really skinny. I keep it wide enough for two cars as a rule, but that won't happen anytime soon. So we'll have to do a little shuffling of the fleet when it's time to go somewhere.
