October Snow was all a treat for me in Western NH and Eastern Vermont. I live about an hour from Killington and we got 20" yesterday in NH.   Kill is open with 6 trails spinning 2 lifts. First in the area.

My sentiments exactly!

Here just outside Philly it snowed all day, enough for a good 8-10", but all we were left with at the end of it was an inch or two of crusty frozen slush.

Ken I heard there are power outages in your area.  Have you got power?(maybe you're posting form a mobile device?

Lots of power outages all over the area.  Both my parents' house and my sister's house have been without power since Saturday around noon.  Foliage was still on trees and the added weight of all the heavy snow took down limbs (which took down power lines) all over the place.

I've got power but (knocking wood) my neighborhood seems to be on a very stable subsection of the power grid for some reason so it's pretty uncommon for us to lose it. That and the power co here has been slashing trees to avoid falling limbs knocking out power. A very double-edged sword.

 

The foliage on the trees was a huge problem. Lots of big branches down on the roads. I had to drive a bit on Saturday and just north of me they were getting pretty close to whiteout (whiteroom?) conditions and there were huge limbs down on the NE extension of the PA Turnpike. Which was fun.

BillA - Where in NNJ are you?

post #12 of 22

we got about 8" in Hunterdon county Clinton Area.  we have power, many areas don't  Went out every 3 hours and beat the trees with a long wrought iron pole.  Ended up losing some big branches on a White pine.  You could hear the branches popping all day.  Its like a gun going off.

 

You are brave, No way I am risky a spiral fracture or a tib/fib bust for that!  Cheers

We got 10" here in central PA. Most of it stuck until yesterday. There are about 190,000 people still without power in our area.

Near Craigmeur if you know where that is. Northwest corner of Morris County close to Rt 23.

I don't know where that is, but I do know that the first time I ever skied I was staying at the Craigmeur ski club lodge up near Rutland VT as a guest of one of my families boating friends.  Thanks Chris!

As a kid I used to think that the western european practice of pollarding trees to just above head-height  was absolutely hideous in wintertime.     Now I know better.

My azaleas used to look like that, before I learned to prune.

we got about 2 to 3 inches from the storm near valley forge.  there was still some snow left in my backyard this morning when i left for work.  we're going back up into the 60's this week....sad.  at least it was a nice taste of things to come (hopefully!).

post #20 of 22

It really amped me up for the season to come..a bit of a tease but a nice one.
