Even though Spring started a few days ago Winter doesn’t seem to want to give up here in the Northeast Kingdom of Vermont, or much of the northeast US for that mater. On Thursday morning, the first day of Spring, we picked up 4 ” of new snow in Island Pond. Yesterday we had a light snow most of the day that didn’t amount to any accumulation. The sun angle is so strong this time of year that even though it’s hidden behind the clouds it’s hard for the snow to accumulate during the daylight hours unless it’s really coming down. We are expecting 2-4 inches of snow today /tonight as another cold front swings through the area. After the front comes through we will have to deal with more cold weather through most of the upcoming week.
As you can see from a current image from our webcam, there is still over 2 feet of snowpack on the ground here in Island Pond.
