The snow can quit anytime. Over 26 inches in the last 3 days. It just keeps coming.

Those lakes would be great snow makers for ski hills. Is there any hills big enough up there for a ski business? ;D

Our next snow here is expected Tuesday, but 1" rain predicted for tomorrow. That will be interesting driving for the first couple hours when the rain hits 15F pavement. ;D
Move'n on.

And yes I did get my Bear Paws on the other day. So we be Logging On.

If you want to know my weather conditions, just ask @SwampDonkey  :D. His is pretty close to mine, just add a couple of degrees. It was 23 this morning and we too are expecting over an inch of rain from later today through Sunday morning/Afternoon. Not conducive to getting a lot of work done, but I try never to waste a weekend. I have rain gear.

Yeah that's close Doc ;D. Our daytime high will be in the high 30's and the temp is predicted to stay on a steady incline hitting mid 40's by tomorrow afternoon, late. So 45 vs. 59, yeah, nearly identical. :D

Quite a few ski hills around. The porcupine mountains state park and ski hill is right down the road. UP the road an hour and a half is Mt. Bohemia which is ranked number 1 in the state for ski hills last I heard. Also hundreds of miles of groomed snowmobile trails.

Not much for snow here yet as per photos, but I live 4 miles from a ski hill in Maine. But in New Brunswick the closest is on Crabbe Mountain about an hr's drive. Sometimes we get a winter of ice and rain, then we can get a winter of non stop snow. And that had always happened here despite the hypists. Falls true with the growing zones in NB that have been unchanged every 30 years. Try and grow a peach or a magnolia up here, despite green houses selling them every year. I've yet to see one survive and flower. Even black walnut gets beat up real bad. Bristly locust has been planted up here since the 19th C, gets about 20 feet tall with a lot of dead branches every spring and finally dies back to the stump to sucker a bunch of new ones. That tells more more truth about the climate than the talking heads. :D
Move'n on.

Freezing rain for a good part of the night here. The temperature kept going up overnight though. Rain and 41 now. Supposed to be like that pretty much all day. Then partly sunny tomorrow
