If you think it just doesn’t snow in Vermont like it used to, here’s some new evidence to back that claim up. A U.S. Geological Survey study has found that snowfall in New England has decreased in favor of rain during the last half century.

The survey looked at snowfall and rainfall at 21 locations around New England. It found that in 11 sites, including in Vermont, snowfall had decreased significantly since 1949. The remaining 10 sites had insignificant trends.
