Not intended to just pick on Brownman, but aren't your posts about the current weather a bit over the top. Check out the Beast communication they just mailed out:

Although we've got a brief wet spell comingtomorrow, we've got our sights set on the snow coming Saturday morning on the backside of this weather pattern.

Sound like it should be OK by Saturday !!


Yeah but this is going to melt a lot of snow in the mean time. 1ft of snow on the ground by me has vaporized in 12 hrs with the same conditions as what is in VT right now.

I've lost well over two feet on my deck over the past two days. Upper Pike on Pico looks trashed and other trails look bad as well.

On the radar it looks like we are in the slot??

Maine on the other hand will be a complete washout.

I live 20 minutes from Maine and so far I have only had 0.08" of r*in, but warm temps have cut the snowpack in half or more.

Hard to believe that we were skiing Pico one week ago today and it was 67 degrees colder.

21.2 degrees and dropping - little wind, only about a 1/4 inch of snow and looks very crusty - very light something falling - we lost most of the snow out our slider and you can still see grass. Be safe out there if you get on the road!!!
