It barely showed up on the weather radar. You won't hear much about it on the Weather Channel. If you listen to NECN (New England Cable News) there was a brief mention of it.
It, of course, is a snow storm that would have cleared grocery shelves of all milk and bread in both Boston and New York... but 4 1/2 inches of fresh powder at Killington.... Did they even plow today?
In all jest, and seriousness, a clipper system combined with lake effect snow has been blanketing the Green Mountains with light powder for the last 24 hours. On and off snow has been falling at Killington. Road crews and private plowing services are out clearing roads and parking lots so Presidents Week visitors can comfortably move around the area. Those who are vacationing in Killington mid-week, have gotten a great score...fresh powder to play in on their skiing/riding trip to Killington.
The inn and the surrounding area are all draped in a beautiful white mantle. Light to moderate winds are blowing and drifting the snow in places, but it is all good!
The conditions that have brought fresh powder to Killington are supposed to be with us at least through Thursday. Local weather forecasts have called for 3 to 6 inches total from the "storm"... Since we already have 4 1/2, it will be interesting to see the final total.
Let it snow!
