Crapola

I thought I'd share this (courtesy of our local news) for those of you I'd like to smack I've heard mumble and grumble about not getting enough snow this winter...

More snow on the way tonight into Saturday. We are rapidly approaching record levels of snowfall here in New Hampshire, and with more on the way I thought I'd recap the records for you...

As of right now, (in Concord where the official records are kep), we are at 102.2" snowfall so far this year..... that has us in 2nd place for highest snowfall in an ENTIRE SEASON since 1900.

How about ALL TIME? For that, we're currently in 8th place, but should be moving up that list a bit by tomorrow, depending on how much snow Concord receives. Here's the list for all-time snowfall that goes back as far as records have been kept.

1) 1873-74 122"
2) 1872-73 115"
3) 1995-96 113.2"
4) 1886-87* 111"
5) 1887-88* 111"
6) 1898-99 103.2"
7) 1874-75 103"
8) 2007-08 102.2" -----
so far this season

So, how much will we add to that? Snow will move in tonight (between 9pm and 1am) and will continue heavy at times overnight and into Saturday. As a secondary area of low pressure develops off the Maine coast, the system will slowly lift away through the afternoon and Saturday night. This will leave most of us on the colder side of this storm, meaning mainly snow. Expect a big chunk of the state to be in the 5 to 10 inch range, with a few spots (as always) perhaps seeing a bit more if you're in and around mountainous areas....


So, how's your weekend looking? We're supposed to be heading in to Boston tomorrow late morning for the Bruins game with friends... assuming we do get there, I suspect pure hell in trying to find parking.

Happy
Leap Day from our home to yours...

Thank you for the reminder of how obnoxious snow can be...i've lost my mind in Georgia wishing to see a little more white stuff. :)

I don't know how you do it. Just reading about all that snow makes me want to pop a valium and crawl into bed until April. I hope you are able to get to Boston.
