See You Next Fall!

The record-setting 80 degrees we hit yesterday (April 11, 2011) is the final indication that the snow season is officially over for 2010-2011. What an amazing winter it was:

*Around 100 inches of snow in the Berkshires
*Three snow days and three two-hour delays for the GSD district
*Two 18"+ storms
*Countless, edge-of-our-seat near misses
*Snow cover from December right on through March
*Over 50,000 visits to GSD

The GSD staff is now officially on vacation. We'll drop a post every once in a while if we hear any good news about the 2011-12 snow season, and we've had snow as late as May 10th around here so you just never know. For next year, the early word is that we'll be in the La Nina pattern again, which bodes extremely well for us snow lovers.

Don't hesitate to offer up a suggestion for ways to improve GSD by leaving us a comment.


  1. thanks, GSD. it was nice to get excited about snow for once. I even checked in when it was 80 degrees outside (I'll have to take GSD out of my bookmark bar until next season so I don't keep clicking on it everyday :P over 51000 now? half of that's gotta be me).

  2. Rumor has it that the GSD staff has been nominated for a Pulitzer Prize in the commentary category. Many Pulitzer recipients are avid GSD fans, and, from what I've heard, have been bombarding the judges with e-mails, phone calls and letters recommending the GSD staff for one of its coveted prizes. "The Pulitzer was awarded to Kathleen Parker of The Washington Post (2010) for her perceptive, often witty columns on an array of political and moral issues, gracefully sharing the experiences and values that lead her to unpredictable conclusions."(http://www.pulitzer.org/citation/2010-Commentary) Yup, witty and unpredictable conclusions, exactly the stuff that makes the GSD site such an entertaining, and more often than not, hilarious read. Kudos on the nomination.
