    Yeah, end of day yesterday, things were looking sweet. Now moving in the wrong direction for both the weekend and that Tuesday event.

    We must not be obsessively watching the weather hard enough.

    It going to be a slop storm, wet but probably not harmful to the base, may be good for it. I don't see that as a negative right now unless your just after powder. Bastardi was mentioning a favorable situation (state of the SOI) along with a tropical system which has potential to give you good powder down the line (6-10 days).

    Models not showing a full on powder situation but all have a nice net gainer, even the GFS which right now looks off vs. Euro and Canadian, both of which have been pretty consistent. NAM just picking up storm in its window so next 24 hours should start to clarify. But its a close call either way, but I stand by a nice net gainer, base building storm north of Mass VT/NH border.

    As for tomorrow I don't think there will be much but it could be foggy and drizzly.

    Will be a net gain even if sloppy.

    NWS Albany graphics are showing about 4" in SoVT. Looking similar to the storm last week. At least it's not all rain. It's been warm up here the last few days.

    And it was raining pretty good at Mount Snow today starting around 11:30. They need it.

    Only thing that surprises me about that is, I was at Okemo (not that far away), and the rain didn't start till 1:30. Yes So Vermont needs snow (and hopefully its on the way) but I didn't miss the freezing temps this weekend, and enjoyed the soft snow, though the fog was a little bit of a "pita".

    Northern VT is currently just as bare. Last year was unquestionably better at this point... as my photos from last year at Stowe and MRG at this same time prove (and then turned to sh*t).

    It's bare in the valleys but there is definitely more snow than last year at higher altitude. There are three feet on the ground at 1800' and 5 feet at 3500' (measured with a probe Saturday). We never came anywhere close to that last year And this is high density snow.
