ADAMS, Mass. (AP) — A rare Memorial Day weekend snow fall left guests stranded at a Berkshire Mountains lodge.
The Berkshire Eagle reports (http://bit.ly/10BFSCo) that Mount Greylock State Reservation reopened Monday morning after a weekend snow fall left slick roads leading to the summit.
Peter Dudek, a manager at Bascom Lodge at the summit, said some hikers and staff sought refuge during the inclement weather.
He estimated the snow fall to be a few inches, with snow drifts up to six inches. He says it was enough for people to be snowed in at the lodge.
The National Weather Service said 7 1/2 inches of snow fell in parts of northern Vermont by early Sunday morning.
