    Despite the warm start to February, ski areas across New England are in great shape for the upcoming long holiday weekend.

    Several feet of fresh snow still blankets much of ski country in Vermont, New Hampshire, and Maine, and even in Southern New England the slopes are covered in white.

    At the Blue Hills Ski Area in Canton, Massachusetts, up to 10 feet of snow sits on the trails according to General Manager Molly Ross.

    She adds that snow making is scheduled to resume Friday night, before natural snow falls Saturday night.

    [NATL] Clerk Pulls Out Machete on Would-Be Robber

    A would-be robber armed with a knife had a surprise in store when an Alabama store clerk pulled out a machete in defense. The two's brief knife fight was caught on camera before the clerk runs out to damage the robber's car.

    According to police, suspect Seth Holcomb walked up to the counter to make a purchase. He leaves the store and then comes back in as if to make a second purchase. Then, he pulled out a knife at the counter. What he didn't expect was that the clerk would pull out a machete of his own.
