<p><span style="color:#0000cd;">Snow is on the way-  FINALLY!   It's been a weird winter here so far and many teachers at school were hoping for a snow day tomorrow.  It may be that they get their wish!</span></p>
<p><span style="color:#0000cd;">   I have heard varying reports .. most recent was a pretty wide spread  6"-12" on the ground between 4 am - 4 -m tomorrow- (Exactly perfect for a school cancellation! )  </span></p>
<p> </p>
<p><span style="color:#0000cd;">   There is one danger, of course, that many will teachers and kids will stay up late, not do homework/planning in anticipation of a day off and then  BAM-  the storm eases on by, perhaps dumping a foot or more on Massachusetts or Maine ..but nary a flake here.. and we are all caught having to go to school...</span></p>
<p><span style="color:#0000cd;"> I am DEFINITELY staying up late anyway!   SNOW.. SNOW... snow....</span></p>
<p> </p>
<p><span style="color:#0000cd;"> ( My snowshoes await by the  door.. ready to go! .. The heck with shoveling!) </span></p>

<p>Just gray and dreary in the Champlain valley for the most part this winter. Seems every time major precip comes it warms up and rains. Snow cover has been mostly 1-2" with grass sticking up through the snow most of the winter. Maybe 3-4" in Essex. I hear the (Green & Adirondack) mountains have a little more, but still not that much for this time of year. maybe 1-2' ? I read early this week the western slopes of the Greens got 18" new snow locally. This storm is supposed to miss us again, we might pick up 2-3". Just enough to make the commute a PITA. I am still hoping it vears left just a bit and puts in that 6-12" range. I want my money's worth for my snow blower. If its going to snow, then snow ! Not this 1-2" crap.</p>
<p>I would be surprised if 6-12" caused a snow day in New Hampshire, unless accompanied by an icing event. New England road crews will have the roads cleared in no time.</p>
<p>Looks like the storm may be vearing inland a bit more then originally thought, they have revised snow totals for the Champlain valley for the better:</p>

<p>Not sure if that link is going to work and show everyone what I see, but the net for me is they are now showing over 6-8" for the northern Champlain Valley and South Hero, whereas this morning they were saying 1-3". So this looks like our biggest snow for the year (2010-2011 season) so far. I am at work in Essex right now and looks like 4-5" of new snow so far on the cars in the parking lot.</p>

<p>Raising Az, glad you got your snow day, enjoy. For me, I can do my work on line, so even if I were snowed in I could still work from home. As long as I don't lose my internet service.</p>
