Parts of Vermont & New York blanketed with snow in unusual Memorial Day Weekend snowstorm

MT. MAINSFIELD, Vt. - Memorial Day Weekend may be the unofficial start of summer, but Mother Nature had other ideas for the mountains of Vermont.

As much as nine inches of snow piled up on Mt. Mansfield over the weekend.

It was a blustery winter wonderland for skiers, but the snow also came with treacherous driving conditions, road closures and power outages.

At lower elevations, the storm caused significant flooding across the region.

In nearby Stowe, Vt., more an a foot of snow recorded on Sunday marked the latest in the season it's ever had that much snow.

Vermont's governor urged residents to avoid driving on flooded roadways.

Vermont didn't even see the worst of it over the weekend. In New York, a ski resort on the Adirondacks saw about three feet of the white stuff.
