Driving through Chittenden County the roads are pretty clear.
"I was working on Dorset Street yesterday and there was hardly anything," said Tyler Miller of Bakersfield.
But when you make it to Franklin County, they sure are covered.
"It's like a snow globe; there is lots of it," said Shawnee Lissenden of Bakersfield.
"Last night when I got home there was about 18 inches that I plowed and this morning when I woke up there was probably 6 inches of snow," Miller said.
This week, some parts of Enosburgh, Montgomery and Bakersfield have been walloped with roughly 2 feet of snow, and tactics for tackling the white stuff have varied.
"Snow blowed, shoveled, sit there and watch my little brother do it," said Leon West of Bakersfield.
In Bakersfield, trekking through all the snow really is a bit of a challenge. WCAX's Sharon Meyer says it's an upsloping situation that's behind communities like this simply get walloped.
"What happens there is you get this lifting up over the mountains. We have condensation and more snow in the mountains, especially the western facing slopes of the mountains, because that is where the wind flow is coming from. So, as a result, we end up with practically nothing in the Champlain Valley, but you get into some of those favored areas, where there was a snow shower, where they had this upsloping going on, and they had one to two-- even a little bit more than that-- feet of snow over the past couple of days," Sharon explained.
For Sharon and her team, it makes things exciting.
"It makes it an adventure," Sharon said. "It is an adventure forecasting snow around in this area because of the topography."
For the folks stuck with what Mother Nature left behind, it comes with mixed reviews.
"That's why we live up here; you just deal with it," Miller said.
"I hate snow, I hate snow," Lissenden said, "because I don't like being cold and I get stuck inside."
