Don't know how much you guys up in the Valley got, but the predicted 10-14" (according to the NWS) in the Ossipee area never materialized.  We got maybe 2-3" yesterday afternoon before it changed over to rain, then another inch or so overnight after the temps came back down.  Now it's cold again and still snowing.  Wakefield had a dusting and Wolfeboro didn't have much either according to the guys at work.  I was basically the only one with a plow down the last 2 days....  And it was wet, heavy, hard pushing too. ::)

I'm just in from round 2 of the snow removal saga. fortunately we didn't get much more after I did the main driveway last night at 11:30. however, what's left is an unreal crust with slushy ice underneath - in spite of it not getting above 17 degrees today! chopping out my bulkhead was a real chore. what's left is impossible to snowblow and almost impossible to dig. the wife says "Just leave it, it'll all be over in 6 weeks!" But I'm not so sure at this point that the snow will be anywhere near melted by the end of April this year. Snowbanks in my yard are really high and very packed. I think we could have snow in the yard well through May!

Really? I want to believe but even Cranmore is only reporting 14" and you can usually divide that by 2 to get the real number.

Wow. and I was having dreams of hiking in to the outback crags soon. It is going to be in June at this rate before the gates open. Skiers must be loving it this year though. Hopefully it has been good for the NH economy.
