Weather Forecast for the east looking good

post #1 of 16
Thread Starter 
Checked out what the Skiing Weatherman at www.snowcountry.com had to say about the long range forecast. Hate to jinx it but it looks promising for the east and even my neck of the woods here in Pa. Let's hope like last year we can go out with a boom and not a wimper.

On top of that good news I had something come completely out of left field today that might have me skiing later next week with a customer in Colorado.I'm working on that tomorrow.

Vt. has usually got some good storms in March, sometimes the 18-24" type but as fast as it hits it can disappear just as quickly. Be ready to jump on any storm and get up to ski country if you want the good stuff. Sometimes waiting for the weekend just won't do.

I like positive thinking. But the weather couldn't get any worse than yesterday and today. It was a summer rain. It was 55*. I had to close all the blinds so I couldn't see out the window.

I'll believe it when I see it. I have not gotten any local powder days yet this season.

It was super warm and rainy here on Sunday. YUCK!
But, today it got cooler, 20's and we got 4 inches of fresh fluffy snow since 5 tonight.

It turned that fast, and its coming your way!
Get ready!

Yeah I got trapped out on Rt.100 in Vermont on Sunday night because of all the rain making a perfect skating rink on the roads... So I'm looking forward to getting some fluffy stuff! EVERYONE- let's really make this snow happen- wash your cars on Friday and I can almost guarantee that it will dump.

It's dumpin now. About 5" in the hills expected. This will help.

Magic anyone?

If the 5" of snow we already have on the ground on Long Island is any indication, the hills must be getting some major dumpage.

I love snow.

I finally get to use my snow blower.

Sweet Rich, haven't had one of those since I lived in Minnesota. I bet the newer ones are a lot easier to get started. My next door neighbor on LI had a gas station and had a plow on front of his tow truck. He plowed the street and also hit the driveways of folks he liked Say, does the climate out there still permit pond skating? I used to play a little hockey (more like skate around chasing a puck) when I didn't have time to get to the mountains on the weekend.

I dont know, it just so happens where I live, South Merrick, does have many ponds, but with the temperatures being so inconsistant, I wouldnt try it.

The current storm isn't going to do a lot for northern Vermont unfortunately, it's more of a Pennsylvania, NJ, NY, Southern NE clipper.
