We got an inch and a half or so at my place, which is at 1000 feet in elevation. It’s rare to have this much accumulation in May in Vermont, but not unheard of. Dr Pugs grew up half an hour away and has experienced snow in June.

Not one to waste an opportunity to have fun on a snowy, sunny day, I booted up and headed out to the front yard. Regretted that I didn’t get the bindings BP88s I bought from @NewEnglandSkier adjusted to my boots, but ultimately not a big deal.

The front yard has all of maybe 25 feet elevation drop if you make the long run out. I’m not used to skiing fast grass so I did not successfully make the entire run either time. Yes, I took one run consisting of a turn and a fall, then hiked up and took a second run consisting of a turn, turn, glide and a fall.

All in all not the best skiing I’ve done in May, but the best skiing I’ve done in May at home! :ski3::yardsale:

What the heck? Lol. I’m going to top up the chemicals in the hot tub and recreate the Nordic spa experience at home.

I love this. Every time you post pics of your place it looks better and better! That pool is gorgeous.

I am inordinately proud of my home and thrilled to live here. I would love to invite Ski Divas to stay whenever possible. It’s not possible this summer, of course, and I realize you’re in Colorado, but maybe another summer we can do a Diva summer hiking meetup with drinks and pool at my house afterwards.

That would be fun!

The pool isn’t heated! :brr:

skip that for today! It looks great though!

I live in a condo so I don’t have a pool. It’s a very small complex and we don’t have a pool. Which is probably good because right now I’d be wanting to use one for exercise. So I’ve eliminated that issue in my mind! Not that my mind doesn’t have a few issues these days! :rolleyes:

Looks pretty much the same here in Windsor County, Vermont. We got about an inch, too, and it's still snowing. I don't expect it to stay around for long.

Time for some yard turns! Or not. Yes, the snow has already slid off all our solar panels. It’ll be gone by Monday at latest.

Someone near Bretton Woods is reporting 8 inches! Here in central MA we only got some flurries, nothing stuck. Was hoping for some more yard turns myself! Lol

very nice! Will you get a chance to play in the snow?
Probably not, as we are in the midst of a painting project. Very wet, heavy stuff (the snow, not the paint). High winds moving in now, we have wind advisory for gusts of up to 50mph. There goes the power....:rolleyes:

It "blipped." Didn't go completely out. Phew. We do have a generator, though. Kind of a PITA to get all set up, but it means we can survive here when/if necessary.
Carrabassett Valley (Sugarloaf) apparently got almost 10" out of this storm. <sigh>

We get outages pretty often where we are. We had a Tesla Powerwall installed almost as soon as we could when we moved in. It’s been really great to have - totally seamless for every little 7 minute power outage and we’ve been the only family for miles around with power in hour long outages which has been so comfortable.
