Crazy weather

Front yard

We've had only 50 inches of snow so far this season. We've barely used the snow shovels. On Friday, spring break began, like it usually does, with a snowstorm, but this might be the last bit of winter weather we see. Temperatures are supposed to go into the 60s today, which means the snow will be gone by tonight.

"I'm declaring it spring," Boy in Black said last night. "Be sure to find your cleats." For him the warm weather means one thing: it's time to play Ultimate Frisbee outside again.

"Only" and "50 inches" makes those of us not from your part of the world wondering if you accidentally added a zero to that number.

But 50 inches spread out over a whole season isn't really very much at all.

We've had snow (not in town but up in the mountains) but the temperature swings have been psychotic. 20 degrees, then 3 days later 40 degrees; 15 degrees, then 3 days later 60 degrees; etc.

We had a little bit of snow overnight--enough to cover the tops of cars and lawns, not enough to really cover the warmer sidewalks. I went skiing today, following trails up high, with good snow coverage, but plenty of water bars that led us to remove skis and jump over trails (and only occasionally fall on the other side). I came home to weather 20 degrees warmer than when I left, and by mid-week it'll be in the 50s. So weird, indeed.

I love the canoe shot.

Know what you mean about the lack of snow... same here! We had only 2 storms to speak of. One on Halloween weekend (24" in a day) & about a foot last week (which is melted already).

When I first moved here & met people, they'd tell me about my NH & go on about the hard winters. We don't call 'em "the White Mtns." for nothin'. Then they'd say, "Where you from?" I'd say, "Syracuse, NY." And they'd say, "Oh, never mind about our winters then..."

You must be so disappointed. Don't you guys normally average over 100 inches?

Looks deceptively calm...

...I attended college at Oswego, NY and remember - but don't miss - their winters.
