geting snow for the last 4 hours here in northeast connecticut. not amounting to much but still snow...

I would much rather snow than rain. I was thinking of heading north instead of south, It is easier to stay warm than it is to stay dry.

Anyone going out, take care and have the right gear!! Hypothermic conditions.

It's 32 in Hanover as I write this (it's almost eleven) and it'll be colder higher up. Looks like cold and cloudy on Saturday with probable rain on Sunday. Good luck to anyone going up in the high country.
