I had some gusts to 40mph this morning. Rain and 30s here. I'm hearing many spinouts, accidents and sleet accumulations north of I-90 in MA. Messy storm. Hope you all are staying safe!

Accentuating the positive instances:
Weather here today is wonderful, IMHO
Little wind, sunny, prob. about 60 degrees.
Ideal day for opening up windows & getting caught up on some vacuuming, which I did.

Friday was a chilly mess, with slush, freezing, rain, snow, and temp. in 30's=perilous road conditions.
Sat. was near 50, partly sunny/cloudy, windy.
Same for Sunday-an improvement, but the wind chill chilled me & the clouds made for inadequate daylight.

Today feels "just right" (comfortable) to me.
In other words, the current weather news is that "there is no news"-I'm enjoying these conditions

Spring is definitely here. It was 63 degrees in Burlington yesterday and today not as sunny, but we are looking at high 60's and even warmer later in the week. The other thing I noticed today were lawns are very green and growing. I bet some people may be mowing lawns within a few weeks.

yesterday was crazy - beautiful. So sunny! Today a little dreary but still nice, gusting wind though and rain, power flickering a bit. It may be time to hang up the skis soon?

I don't count snow out until last of April.
Growing up in Maine, I recall an April snowstorm (during my childhood)-and that stuck with me.
So, while I don't anticipate there being any further snow here this season...I bear in mind it'll be another couple weeks before I feel certain.

Today began sunny, but turned overcast in afternoon.
High winds today were a struggle to walk in, but at least I made it back indoors just as the rain showers kicked in.

I started scraping paint on a house yesterday on the edge of Lake Memphremagog. The ice is still there and we may still have a blustery day or two, but winter is over. Anything wintery from here on in should be just be a day's setback. Skiing should be pretty good for another month at Jay for just such an occasion.

This is my second year in Vermont and last year wasn't representative of a normal winter. I have to say... this winter was pretty tough to cope with.

Spring may have officially started in March, but it's late April and trees still don't have leaves. We've had some nice days and I'm thankful for that, but I want to see some green.

It seems weird to me to still see ice and snow in late April. That trees are dead for more than half the year. Vermont definitely has 4 seasons, but spring and fall are about a month each, summer 3 months, and winter 7 months.

Not to discourage you, but the past several winters have been mild. This year was worse than last year, but no where near normal winter for Vermont. We have been upgraded statewide with our climate zones, so winters may not be as harsh as they were 10+ years ago. I will not complain about that. If winter only lasted 4-5 months I would be happy.

Default Mountain Snowpack Chart

Cool site just came across. Looks like we're above average snow up there since mid March

that 87" peak didn't last very long. Today was an interesting study in VT weather. I came home around noon and the house was cold. I checked the outside temp and it was about 38 with light rain falling. I lit a fire in the stove, had lunch and nodded off for awhile. When I woke up I could hear the wind roaring outside, the sun was out and the temp was pushing 60.
