First Snowstorm of 2010

It’s been snowing in northern Vermont since New Year’s Day. More than a foot of snow has fallen at Vermont ski areas, including Bolton Valley, Jay Peak, Mad River Glen, Burke Mountain, Killington, Smugglers’ Notch, Stratton, and Sugarbush.

The Burlington area received about 32 inches over the weekend, and the snow is still coming down. Burlington’s all-time record for a single snowstorm was 29.7 inches, so this storm has set a new record for the city.

Get outside if you can today and enjoy the snow. It’s so peaceful and beautiful out there.

    Those of you on the east side of the lake got the best of it all. Here on my deck I measured 5″ this morning and might have gotten another 3″ this afternoon after clearing off the deck. Wow,… how did it all skip me here?

    Yowzers, that’s a LOT of snow. We’re happy to get a couple of inches in these parts… southeast Ohio is certainly not part of any snow belt! Stay warm and stay safe… and enjoy it! (I love your background pattern, by the way.)

    Hubby interviewed for a job in the Burlington area a few years back…. looking at all that snow I can now say that I’m sort of glad he did not get the job. That’s a whole lotta snow! Beautiful though.

    Cedar – The storm was incredible! Strange how it stayed on this side of the lake. Glad you got some of it though.

    Heather – I know, so much snow! Amazing. I am enjoying it — thank you!

    Elvira — Thanks so much. You are very kind!

    Di – Thanks for stopping by. You’re right, the snow is pretty. But it’s not much fun to drive to work in!

    Hi Erica

    Thank you for becoming a follower of my blog, I have reciprocated and become a follower of yours.

    We have snow here in the UK but it is a lot worse than we normally have. There is a weather warning out. Some people were stuck in their cars overnight.

    My hubby and I are going to get our walking boots out and go for a short walk as I would like to take some more photgraphs.It looks lovely from the house but I will wait and see what it is like outside!!
