    That last storm in New England hit Massachusetts and Conneticuit and southern NH and maine, but now we in the north will be getting snow!

    Tuesday night, around midnight, a mixed precipitation will be developing... and lasting through the next afternoon, where it'll turn to rain mixed with freezing rain.

    There should be 1 - 4 inch accumalations north of Concord, NH with a spot 5 inch amount (in the higher elevations). Below concord could see a slushy coat up to 2 inches. The coast could see freezing rain/snow/rain turn to all rain before mid-morning.

    Been a slow start here in most if not all of the northeast. Besides that one little taste we got here in CT its been warm and rainy and it doesnt seem to be getting much colder.

    Where I live in Central NH (top of Lake Winnipesaukeee) I dont think we are going to get much or any at all. Both of my trucks are ready to roll at a moments notice.

    Looking back thru my diary this is the first year since 1996 that we haven't had snow that stuck on Thanksgiving Day.

    Well, I usually always get snow in october, but not this year.

    And I'm talking at least an inch of snow every october. Last year we had one storm that dropped 5 inches.

    St Albans, man I envy the great soil they have there! And flat land! We're about sixty miles away on the edge of Mt Mansfield. More snow here, but less arable land. Payoff, I guess. Pete

    Boondox you hunt? You sound like a farmer so I assume so(talking about tillable soil). Im in the valley,and dairy farmed as a kid.

    Chainlink -- Yeah, I hunt. Mostly coyotes after my sheep these days. Four of em so far this year. And venison is always appreciated.

    Nope, not a farmer in the real sense. I'm a Marine Corps vet who still loves to shoot, but my regular job is a statistician. It's just that after being cooped up for so long on troop ships, then hospitals (shrapnel is ugly stuff) and then in college classrooms (the great paper chase!) I have this thing for open land and growing things.

    None of my land is flat, and all of it is rocky, so I stare longingly at those flat, tillable fields in the valley. :drinkup:

    We got ice last night, it was a mix, starting somewhere near 1:30 am, and it changed to all rain around 4:30 am. The state & town salted the roads.

    Friday we are supposed to get accumalating snow, with no rain.

    You too, brother. The army has come a long way in the last couple of decades. Jeez, they even have light infantry now! Who woulda thunk? Thanks for the offer, but I have the coyote situation under control. The last two were head shots at 400+ yards.

    A grunt and his rifle...it's a beautiful thing! :cool:

    2" of slush up this way and raining out now. I even put my plow frame back on my truck today and hooked up the plow. I am not even going out as it will be mostly gone by morning. They are calling for rain next week! :(
