    April snowstorm

    We have nearly a foot in Southern Vermont in the higher elevations. It's still coming down hard. Going to have to pull the snowshoes back out for climbing in certain places this weekend.
    I plan to XC ski after work; this is awesome I love the snow.

    I was jealous until it finally started in this morning, just shy of 5" here so far. I was worried as we got no rain yesterday or last night save for a spit. Happy for any precip right now as I didn't even enjoy going into the woods this week as it has been depressingly dry.

    Luckily the trees have not leafed-out yet, snow not so rough on the trees.

    Daffodils are the current biggest loser so far.

    Randolph NH reported 10" of snow. I had about 9 " in Gorham. Lots of wet snow on the trees.

    Wow! Only 1-3" reported in the Cats, and expected to melt off pretty quickly. (Not that we were totally snow free yet, but close).

    Parts of NE CT picked up half a foot, melting quickly. I've been paying more attention to river gauges and I'm happy to see the rivers are looking more Spring like. The snow melt overa slightly longer time will help with the rivers not going back down quite as quick as if it had all been rain.
    Have fun & be safe

    Walked the MSGT from Washington to Pillsbury SP yesterday and conditions were practically wintry with 6" or so melting quickly on the southern-facing slopes and closer to a foot in the shadier sections though spikes/snowshoes would have been overkill. I saw four SOBO end-to-enders who looked like they were having fun; I hope they brought extra socks!

    Like the saying goes..."It's not over until it's over"! And it is not even May yet. https://news.cornell.edu/stories/199...ng-old-one-436

    I remember hiking in May of 97 and losing the Rollins trail for a bit as the trail markers were still under the snow. Much of the melt really depends on having nights above freezing so you have continuous melting Vs. a melt, freeze, melt, freeze cycle.
