True story.

We're only looking at about an inch or so here on the south end of NH. I credit my decision not to burn the last gas out of my snowblower and move it to the shed in the back yard.

I just did my spring clean out for my smoker too.  Oh well. It will be gone by Sunday.

My snowblower is put away. We are only expecting a covering here in CT. But even if we were expecting a foot, I wouldn't lift a finger-gone in a few days.

Point of order, as a former resident of Maine, and now current resident of Massachusetts, the proper term is "Masshole."

Flatlandahs...

This is nothing new.  It happens, we've had snow in warmer weather.  I've had snowball fights in shorts and t-shirts before.

The forecast is predicting 5 to 11 inches total, with the temp never dropping below 33F. High of 48F Saturday.  So maybe we'll get two inches of accumulation total, which will be gone Saturday.

It will however add to the mud, so stay the hell off our hiking trails until they harden.  Yes, you're probably thinking "I'm a hardy outdoorsy individual, I can handle a bit of mud."  Well, the trails can't, it damages them, causes more erosion.  Half of you despite your initial bravery about hiking in the mud, will just widen the trail, destroying yet more of the beautiful views you came to admire.  ... and there are thousands of you, each one thinking a few extra footprints won't hurt anything, and the next thing you know we have a lifeless hellscape like the top of Mt. Washington.

Figures. I has the snow studs changed off my mom's car yesterday and washed the windows on the house.  It's been so pretty here. At least the generator is working. There's sure to busted trees.

I read that as former President of Maine, and started to wonder what Maine's been hiding from the rest of us.

We northern folk refer to this as "false spring/2nd winter".

Yep, took off the studded snow tires on Monday...

Seconded. As a native of Massachusetts that visits Maine, Masshole is the correct pejorative/superlative/term of endearment/acknowledgment of superior driving skill.

I miss living in New Hampshire. Even with the winters.

Driving skill in Boston used to be "the car with the nicest paint goes last."   It's more civilized these days.

Massholes come from Massholia and Masshats come from the Island of Masshatten. Or am I making it all up? Can you be sure?

Coming Of the Masshats? Son, they're already here. Along with every other kind of flatlander buying up all the available housing. It's been fun listening to them whine about this storm. I just smile and say "Happens every year. Probably doesn't happen in (their home state here).

Spent my first 44 years in VT. Now I live in upside down VT.
