The stretch with no rain was from January 5 - April 9. The average temperatures for February were high 7F, low -9F. Both of these might be records.

The disparity in snowfall between the Mansfield Stake and the Stowe ski area (measured by powderfreak) is huge this year: 183.9 inches vs. 290 inches.

So what is the truth about Stowe? Is the NoVT conspiracy theory actually legit?

I mentioned this to my contact for Mansfield Stake, and he requested that I send him powderfreak's daily spreadsheet for comparison.
