Portions of the Adirondacks were hit with a snowfall this morning, with snow accumulating on the ground at about 2,500 feet.

This type of weather isn’t unheard of at this time of the year, as nighttime temperatures sometimes dip below freezing. A few years back, Whiteface received three feet of snow at its summit during Memorial Day weekend.

Above are some photos I took this morning in Wilmington near the toll gate for the Whiteface Veterans Memorial Highway.

    I wonder if the highway department spread salt on the roads. I sure hope they didn’t. The roads in the Adirondacks are over-salted by a large amount. We need to reduce the amount spread by at least 50 per cent.
