Winter has finally arrived … except that the days are above freezing a bit, so it’s really sliding to a close.

Snowboarding at Jay Peak has been quite excellent — nearly always a feeling of bottomless powder, in the trees, and untracked runs throughout the morning.

    25 cm + 25 cm + 60 cm = 110 cm?! up to the bottom of your windows?! most I have experienced here maybe was 40 cm snow…

    it all settles and/or melts.

    so I’m not sure what the original 80cm is down to now. and I judge basd on what’s on these railings. so, past two mornings have been about 10cm … but then during the day it’s melted.

    I might guess that settled depth is 60-70cm. the ground is still frozen, too 😀

    Mostly it’s bare ground here, but as the southern part is shaded by trees I have about 5 cm snow in those parts. About +4 C in daytime, 0 C at night.

    nights have been in the -5 to -10C range; days from -5 to 5 or so. March is always variable.

    I was just reviewing photos from last year: march 11 we had bare ground and crocuses were beginning to sprout.

    crocuses are now beginning to dig themselfs out! 🙂
