October 2010 brings all-time snow record for Mt. Mansfield

— Mt. Mansfield, Fall & early season

Weather Underground is reporting that October 2010 was the wettest and snowiest October on record atop Mount Mansfield.

They wrote in an email alert that "a total of 14.71 inches of liquid precipitation fell on Mount Mansfield during the month of October. This breaks the old record of 14.43 inches set in October 2006.

A total of 34.1 inches of snow fell on Mount Mansfield during the month of October. This breaks the old record of 31.8 inches set in October 2005."

You can see this above-normal snowfall on this <link http: skivt-l>graph of snow at the stake at about 3,900 feet on Mt. Mansfield. Currently, there are seven inches of snow at the stake.

One can only hope that this translates into a super-snowy winter season!
