Snowfall counter: Deeper than a tulip is tall

By Monday afternoon, Grand Lake Stream ended up with the state’s top snowfall reading, by a particularly precise preliminary reading.

The Washington County plantation posted snowfall of 10.1 inches by about 4 p.m., as many areas around the state recorded about 8-10 inches during the storm that passed through the state on the second day of spring.

The bulk of the storm hit coastal communities, with little snow falling on the western mountains in a year that’s been particularly unforgiving to ski resorts and areas of the state where sledding (or snowmobiling) is a big draw.

From the Portland Bureau, the snow dwindled in the afternoon sun just about as quickly as it arrived. How does it look in your neck of the woods?
