It started snowing about an hour ago (5 A.M.) here in S.E. Mass. I wonder how it will effect the Patriots-Jets game. High winds were predicted for sure. The skiing has been excellent, and I hope it doesn't turn to rain.
4.5 inches of snow in Franklin at 7am. The temp is 19 degrees and we're supposed to change over to sleet and freezing rain in an hour??? I don't think that's gonna happen with the mix line not even at the cape yet. I'll say it might change to rain by the pats game, but there needs to be some serious warm air to do that.
Before it started snowing today, we already had about 16" of snow on the ground. The cross-country skiing has been great for the last two weeks! Get out and ski if you can. I'm hitting Sugarloaf tomorrow. Don't worry too much about rain/sleet/ice. Just get out there. This is the east and if you wait for top quality snow your going to miss out on a lot of skiing. I've had great days of skiing in the rain . It's all about attitude.

Well, soon after I made that post, it turned to rain. In fact, I'm rather amazed this morning that there's still snow cover everywhere but where the plows had moved the earlier snows. Yesterday's snow didn't all get washed away. However, it's terribly crusty and rather windy, still. Wind is the bane of the cross country skier. However, I still have a track out there which probably won't melt in current temps. If it was fully in the woods, I'ld use it today, but it isn't. Nevertheless, I agree with the Mainiac and plan on going downhill skiing tomorrow. I'm sure that the Cape has the worse conditions of N.E.
