Leap day snowstorm

screen grab from Quabbin reservoir camera, evening Feb 29, 2012

No real bird sightings to report today but I could not pass up the once every four years opportunity to post on a leap day.  The addition of one of the only snowstorms of the year on this day just begged for a quick post.  It has snowed since late morning and we have managed a total of about 3 inches of slushy accumulation.  It is suppose to continue to snow/sleet/drizzle overnight through tomorrow likely adding a couple more inches to the storm total.  Amazingly this will likely be the largest storm since the late October storm and the largest snow storm of the actual winter season.  It should warm up by the weekend back to near 50 so hopefully the snow will be short lived.
