Snow, and lots of it

We interrupt this recap of last week’s trip to bring you a winter wonderland:

Over the last 36 hours, we received about 15 inches (38 cm) of snow, which is more than twice what had been forecast. For the 2010-11 winter, which was supposed to be warm and dry because of La Nina, we have had about 40 inches (100cm) of snow already this winter, with 6-8 more weeks before we start to come to the end of snow season. We’ve shattered the record for snowfall over two consecutive seasons. Amazing.

Right now the weather forecast shows some chance of additional snow (though smaller amounts) tomorrow, Saturday, and Tuesday.
