    You can probably make it to Jiminy from Torrington in 75 - 90 minutes (good weather). Best route is 8 North to 20 West (through Lee and Lenox) to 7 North (through Pittsfield). Tonight must be a pretty hairy drive though, especially on 8 N in Southern Mass. That area always seems to get a lot of snow. Sundown tomorrow is probably a better bet, but I haven't seen you on tonight so maybe you braved it?

    By the way, only very light snow in Watertown, CT right now. About 2-3" so far...

    got like 1/2"-1" here in gray, maine as of 8:30 pm - still haven't decided where to go, will probably at 11pm report or 1st thing in the morning- possibly heading more south/VT border as that seems to be the spot.

    We've got a solid 4" here in the Worcester suburbs, and still snowing hard.......

    Looks like 6"-7" on the ground here this morning, but with the wind it's drifting all over.

    We learned that shortcut on our way home from Vermont last week.
    I didn't brave it last night, though. With visibility being so poor and the length of the drive that I would have had to make to ski, I decided to wait it out. I will, however, go to Sundown tonight. With any luck, there will still be some decent snow left by Friday so I can squeeze in another trip to Catamount. Last I saw weather-wise, it will be back in the mid 40s this weekend.

    I have 22" of fresh snow at my house. Well maybe not quite. It's more like 2 inches. It was hyped up to much in my area. At tleast areas in the Catskills, Berkshires and Southern VT got snow.

    The "big" storm pooped out right after I posted my note from last night - we wound up with maybe 5" here in east/central Mass.....

    Yup. 4" or 5" at best for us. Anyone agree that they've been shooting way too high on most of the snowfall forecasts this year? It always gets "downgraded" once it starts falling.

    Oh well. Any snow is good snow.

    Yeah, it's the snow-jinx. When the Weatherman says there will be a lot of snow, it is usually less. I liked that last storm when it was predicted to be 1 - 3" and Jiminy got at least 8".

    This morning I measured 6" to 8" at various spots around my house. About 10mi East of Albany, NY.

    Tonight I'll bring the ruler to Jiminy and measure what they really got. Their email snow report this morning claims 10". !!

    Looks like some snow has been hanging over Berkshire County and Western Mass all day. Can anyone confirm?
