Reminiscing about last season. Anyone's home mountain look like this? We are snowless in CT! Local Mnts. are blowing, but it's not the same.

Same situation here in Tahoe.  We got nothing if it didn't come out of a snow-gun.  Last night the news showed Tioga Pass over Yosmite open and people were skating on Lake Tenaya.  It is smooth as glass and not a speck of snow in sight.

I have more snow at my house right now and am thinking of sessioning my front yard.  I'm going to go check out Eldora on a skibke tomorrow.   Last week's storm was an upslope so I suspect there is more snow up there than on the other side of Rollins Pass.  I'll take a camera or two to take evidence.

The ol Farmer's Almanac has been pretty right so far. I hope our ol Patrollers aren't right - your seasons mimick ours and we shut 3/4 way through the season.

Back in August for Canada they said

 

For the winter of 2011–12, the Canadian Farmers’ Almanac is forecasting unusually cold and stormy weather. For some parts of the country that means a frigid climate; while for others, it’s lots of rain and snow.

This will be a winter of “clime and punishment.” We are forecasting the upcoming winter will be cold to very cold, from Alberta east across Saskatchewan and Manitoba into western Ontario. Meanwhile, we predict temperatures will average above normal for much of Nova Scotia and, possibly, southern New Brunswick. Near-normal temperatures are expected elsewhere. A very active storm track will bring copious precipitation through the Great Lakes into central and eastern Ontario, Quebec, and much of the Maritimes. Another active storm track over the Pacific Ocean will guide systems into southern and central British Columbia and western Alberta, giving them a wetter-than-normal winter:

 

hmmm. hey're right so far for Canada and the US.

As it turned out, my office shut down for this week and when they let us know in early December, I was begging for snow so I could take advantage of an extra 4/5 days off.  Unfortunately, last night was almost 60* here in Boston. 

 

I did go to Wachusett on 12/24 and while happy just to be on snow, I was really disappointed that Mother Nature was not interested in duplicating last year's efforts.

Farmers' Almanac predicts a wet, mild winter for CT. Does this mean last night's monsoon is the first of many?? BOOO! If it wasn't 60* here last night we could have had a blizzard that rivaled Halloween's nor'easter.

We got 10" last thursday, and 55-65mph winds this week, anything new and most of the old is gone, rock skis have a whole new meaning now. I think the almanac said the pattern was going to switch pretty soon here, but im not seeing it. Heck Its too warm to even make snow right now, usually its -20 and theres little worry about snow. I'll just keep working and keep my skis in the corner till we get some.
