Looks like 3-5" before the changeover in CT. This one looks like it will be mostly an NCP event tomorrow, but I figured I'd run a thread on it anyway. If you're close to a ski area, please report on the conditions you're seeing. Winter is supposed to return Saturday so if the R@!N out of this one is minimal, we should be in great shape this coming weekend and beyond...

Stupid question here- what does NCP stand for?
Naked Chicken Pizza?
Neo Classical Precipitation?
Now Chillin' Powder?

They're now calling for 3-6" here before the changeover. We're now up to 2".

We have about an inch In orient point But who cares there is no skiing on the Island, Although the bluffs have pitch of about 35 so if there is enough snow I just might try it.

Where in CT, North Eastern CT?? Here in the NW part of CT we had a good 4" by that time.

When I left Ski Sundown in New Hartford CT at 10:00pm there was at least 4", probably more like 5" and it was still falling. The slopes looked really good, it was pure torture having to stand there working the lift instead of skiing. :angry: I tried to ride a shovel down the bunny slope, but there was too much powder :blink: There was hardly anyone there too, would have been a really nice night to be out on the slopes!

I rec'd 3 inches of snow as of 5:30am. The snow plow guy was plowing my driveway. It had just started to turn to NCP. On my way to work this morning it was pouring. Yuck.

Hunter received around 3" then it started to drizzle...
Around 12" on the ground from the last couple weeks... I hope the rain doesnt melt too much away... We're actually hoping that the snow absorbs the rain and hardens for back country riding base....

Supposed to be super warm....
I guess I won't have to make a fire tonight...
