Vermont Flurries In One Town, Buried in the Next

You've watched me marvel at the weird, warm winter we've had in Vermont this year, and that trend got weirder over the weekend.

Most of us in the state got a small snowstorm, two to six inches of snow. Run of the mill February weather.

Here in St. Albans, Vermont, where I live, we got five inches of snow. Ho-hum. But the storm focused on the mountain range just to my east, where up to three feet of snow fell. You go from practically nothing to completely buried in just a few miles.

This morning I drove the short 13 miles from my five inches of snow to that nearly three feet in Bakersfield.

Within ten minutes of leaving my house, I was in the middle of the old fashioned winter Vermont has lacked this year. I'm sure glad I didn't have to unbury these cars, or shovel the 30 inches of snow out of my driveway.

For once, as much as I like to play in deep snow, I'm glad the storm missed my place. Scroll down for a couple more photos.
