If you are looking for real snow and lots of it, you’ll have to head west towards the Rockie Mountains in Montana, Wyoming, Colorado and Utah and the Sierra Nevadas in California where they have seen several feet of snow. Another area that has seen record snowfall is the upper midwest like portions of the Dakotas and Minnesota.
In the Northeast, most of southern New England has no snowpack and if you wanna find snow, you’ll have to go north to Vermont, New Hampshire, or Maine.
As for the drought, most of New England is drought-free despite the lack of snow. There still is the rest of February and can see snow in March and April so don’t put your shovels away just yet.
