    The only thing I can find wrong is the COR sent in had the wrong hour so this may have made some METAR readers make it appear incorrect.
    I think I need to get a new source, that data did not flow over to the metar on wunderground.com (it used to in the past). Thanks for the update and better web link.

    It is suprising any snow ended up in the precip can with that wind.

    NEWS FLASH - NEWS FLASH - NEWS FLASH

    We have a winner! The F6 this morning reports that the summit got 5.6 inches of snow yesterday. Therefore, Breeze wins this year's First Snow contest.

    Being the winner allows her, according to the contest rules, to go back into Tuckerman Ravine and make a huge snowman all by herself. She does not need to go by herself. It is the making of the snowman that is all her glory. Congratulations to Breeze.

    Here are the results:

    Thank you all!

    Don't for New Hampshire minute think I'm going into Tucks straight away to build a snowman! This isn't snowman snow!

    Road crew reports today indicate serious drifting, hard, icy, compacted windblown stuff with the addition of stubborn rime over glaze ice. 4 FOOT snowbanks at 6 mile park, dusting to 1/2 inch at 3800 feet.

    ALL the summits up in the notch are vanilla frosted today down to that 3800' , when they were visible between squalls.

    We had fleeting views this morning of Boott Spur and Left Gully. It is seriously white up there. Not the place to be heading for right now unless one is truly prepared for full-on-worst-of-winter and ready to turn around.

    My warm and dry prize of yesterday was great, but obviously I'll be finding my winter work gig SOON. Happens every October, and I am sad to be away from the place until mid-May. I'm glad that I can stay connected through this forum.

    ( hey-- it was just a lucky guess).

    Breeze

    It is nice to see how other people react to weather when there is considerable snow around.

    There are certainly a large number of people who are not afraid of the snow.
