How Much Snow to Go?

How Much Snow to Go?

Spring arrived nearly two weeks ago, but snow is still on the ground in many areas of the U.S. and Canada, including at our Maine headquarters, where a staffer encountered cross country skiers during a hike earlier this week.

While the white stuff (or, actually, gray stuff at this time of year) can make it hard to feel like it’s really spring, the snow cover is receding.

You can check out snow depths on the ground around the country and watch animations of how the snow cover has shifted over the course of the season at the National Weather Service’s National Operational Hydrologic
Remote Sensing Center website. Check it out here!

Is there still snow where you are?

We still have snow on the banks of the river and in the shade. Its raining now – I think it will be gone if it keeps raining. Upstate NY – Port Crane, NY 13833 about 3,5 hours north of NYC

Yes we have snow here in Iron River, Michigan’s Upper Peninsula ! I went to go to my green house for potting supplies and sunk thigh deep in snow. Now we have a big snow storm forecast for tonight and tomorrow up to 14″ or more.

No snow in VA. While we did have a snowstorm a week ago, and then saw some snowflakes last weekend.. after that it was quiet. Now the sun is shining and it is getting warmer. Temps are soaring into the 70s. Plus my bradford pears are blossoming! Spring has arrived.

If you notice a hole in the upper left-hand corner of your Farmers' Almanac, don't return it to the store! That hole isn't a defect; it's a part of history. Starting with the first edition of the Farmers' Almanac in 1818, readers used to nail holes into the corners to hang it up in their homes, barns, and outhouses (to provide both reading material and toilet paper). In 1910, the Almanac's publishers began pre-drilling holes in the corners to make it even easier for readers to keep all of that invaluable information (and paper) handy.
