    Weather patterns behave like a pendulum, swinging to and fro. We are going into a heat wave this week.. a fitting swing from one of the Coldest & Snowiest Late May weekends in modern history for the northeastern United States.

    Though this air mass was not as cold as May 25, 1956, when Mount Washington cooled to 6 above zero Fahrenheit. Also the cold, and snow of May 26, 1967, is unmatched in southern and eastern New England. But for Vermont and New York, we are unable to find cold and snow exceeding whatoccurred in the last two days, for this time of year.

    Here are a few highlights, that in a few decades, we get to tell our Grand Children, about ..
    "The old fashioned winters before you were born."

    Deb Burke of Killington Vermont sent this view from her yard Sunday May 26, 2013.
    This is the final day of the Killington ski season, which ran 224 days, Oct 13 - May 26. The season began and ended with unseasonable chill.

    In New Hampshire, Santa's Village in Jefferson had shut down due to snow. The Irony!
    Christian Gaynor took this photo that went viral on twitter (as many of these photos did)
    Melanie said the issue was snow laden branches falling on power lines and exhibits in the park.

    Thomas Prindle says Wildcat opened up for 'Summer Operations', meaning the zip line and Gondola is now open form summer fun. The snowy view coasts nothing extra.

    The snow and cold were more extreme to the west.
    Josh Wirth of Montgomery Center Vermont hiked and skied 20" of snow at Jay Peak Resort.

    But bragging right for the deepest snow come from Whiteface Mountain near Lake Placid New York, where more than 30" of snow fell.
