In 2006, we began tracking snowfall and monitoring the winter weather from our house in Waterbury, Vermont, and since 2009 we have been reporting the snowfall and liquid equivalent through CoCoRaHS as station VT-WS-19 (Waterbury 3.0 NW), where our records can be found. Other observations that we make are frequently posted here in our web log, and also in the New England Regional Forum at American Weather, an excellent site for tracking winter storms with numerous professional meteorologists providing forecasts and discussion about weather in New England.
