    Gamma Ray, please keep all the snow south of the Adirondacks. We usually get our last blast of winter in April. :zip: It does look nice.

    That has to be a picture from Alaska lol :)
    Looks like a wet snow, shouldn't last long,
    but sure takes the wind out of your sails for spring fever.
    Hopefully the last one for a while.

    Nice pics

    It is pretty. We woke up to the same in NNJ. About 5 inches and could get another 3 or so. It is wet and won't last too long.

    Hope it clears by the weekend.

    Looks like that could have been taken here. Trouble is, we also got a bunch of freezing rain after the snow and that really made it difficult to push around, but we got it done anyway.

    Got an inch here. Nice dry fluffy stuff.

    As long as we don't get snow or ice or even just a good freeze once the peach blossoms start a little snow is OK.
    After that anyone with orchards can be hurting.

    Took off from work yesterday to get in one "final" ride . . . while we had a dusting of snow where I live, in one place where we were riding there was 8-10 inches of fresh snow . . . thinking about playing hookey from work sometime next week to do one "final" ride on the sled . . . finally broke the 1,000 mile mark this year . . . sadly I was hoping to see the abandoned steam locomotives in the woods above Chesuncook Lake . . . but one guy's sled broke down . . .

    HehHeh . . . I believe it . . . many years ago my wife and I went from Red Lodge to Cooke City via the Beartooth Scenic Highway in mid-June . . . I still remember a few of the snowbank cutthroughs that the plow had made through and how the snow was still several feet high even in summer.

    I love that highway... one of the most scenic drives around. As for those snow banks, there's a reason that there's a summer ski hill (open from approx. Memorial day through early July) up near the summit of the pass! ;-P

    Great for skiing! Plus, I'm used to it- I've never lived any but Montana. It's not that unusual for us to have a storm dump +6" on us in June before. :)
