Current snow conditions: We have a bit over a foot of snow. Last weekend we had rain that left a pretty icy crust on the snow (awful), but this was followed by cold temps and about five inches of fluff, so conditions are now pretty darn good. Strong winds earlier in the week blew the fluff around, so some areas are likely to be deeper than 12".


  1. What's the highest it has gotten on that snow measuring stick before?

  2. New York Land Man - the highest I've seen it at our stick was 40 inches in early March 2008. We've only been a NWS Co-op Station since March '05, so our data only go back that far. Most years, though, we've been lucky if we get over 15 inches. 2008 was a very snowy year.
