    I am going to hold you that Brad, otherwise I may have to move to your place in Maine and hope they get more snow than 3 inches in SNH here

    That word was clearly out there in the open!

    I am sure you will not have to wait for years anyway. In the winter of 2001/2002 we had solid ice on our lake in Maine on January 7th 2002. This was the latest we had seen. This year it was January 18th.

    But in between we have had dates of December 6, 10, 15 and 22. So, cold and snow is coming.

    I know, I know, just frustrating and the news out of KBOS isnt much better for the area. for the season .08 is being reported at KBOS and for the least amount of snow being reported so far for the season like this, the rest of the winter usually averages about 15 inches,like in 1989 I think was the last one. anyway I will be fine, LET IT SNOW!!
    I think I got that right,

    I like to hike back into Tuckermans in the winter to take pictures on a nice day. It seems the conditions are always pretty close to the same

    temperature +5
    wind chill -35

    With the proper layers and having the ability to take pictures with a light glove layer, it is fine. Actually some of the days have been downright wonderful.

    I have taken several friends back to do this - and even my 8 year old grandson. All were surprised how nice it was and the temperature was not a big deal.

    Default Videos etc.

    Looks like today would have been a great day to climb Washington, or anything for that matter. Low winds and high temps. Yes, 6 sounds high to me. The videos are just awesome. On the west view you could see all the snow they were making at Bretton Woods blowing down through Crawford Notch. On the north view you could see clouds forming and dissapating over Jefferson and Adams. Was the wind blowing east to west? On the deck view you could see them making snow at Wildcat and people moving around on the deck, when the Cog and the Auto Road open back up it will be fun to watch the people milling around, although I guess sunrise will be early for that. Just awesome! Next best thing to seeing it live. I hope it encourages people to go see it in person, whether on edutrips or as volunteers, or better yet, as climbers. Thanks MWO!

    -32F stands as of this morning's synoptic observation....but just barely. The low recorded is -35.7C which translates to -32.3F.

    Breaking News!!!

    The latest synoptic observation says the temperature hit -36.1C which converts to -33F.

    I think we have a new front runner in the competion. I'm happy to annouce that there will be a prize for the runner-up, most likely a 5x7 unframed.

    Edit: And a record low to top it off, not bad. I wasn't expecting that at all.
