It is St. Patrick’s Day, and not the weather, that usually brings green to our part of the world. In an average year snow cover is now gone from the Champlain Valley and the lower elevations of the southern counties of Vermont and New Hampshire, while snow depths of 3 to 4 feet are common over the higher terrain of the north. On this date in 1956, the first of two heavy snow storms dumped 21 inches of snow in Northfield, VT.
