First Snowfall

The forecast has been wavering over the last few days, and while we were expected to get only rain today, for several hours, the weather changed over to wet, heavy, snow. There's still a decent coating on the grass around campus. I'm sure this will melt off pretty quickly, but some of the local mountains have gotten completely blanketed. Killington has over a foot, and Jay Peak in northern Vermont is expecting up to 20".

Mount Washington has broken its record for October snowfall with 43", and at least a foot more expected before the month is out. (The above photo is from a week ago). I'd just like to say, I'm pretty damn psyched for some powder this winter, and this early storm bodes well for a good ski season.
