  1. I live in Highland Mills and measured 35 inches from that storm, never clearing the board once. Had I cleared it 3 or 4 times it might have been 40. That storm and January 1996 at 34 inches are the best of my lifetime. So different though, one pure powder and the temperature never went above 15 and was single digits through much of the storm. The snowicane, 30 through much of the storm and was so wet and heavy for one of the only times in my life I was starting to wish the snow would stop for fear my roof would collapse.
  2. Pretty much. Looking at historical norms those maps have a mid April look to them. There goes my snowpack that I've held onto since January 23rd.
  3. A fascinating stat, and depressing for cold weather lovers like myself. The stretches for cold seem to be less and less each year.
  4. Boston had a storm total of 3.7 inches for yesterday and today. Sometimes people look at the forecasts and not the results. Down east Maine was the big winner the last two days. The lakes around NY are having a nice year.
  5. Yesterday was a very minor event snow and sleet wise fro NYC but at least the 3 airports went outside to measure, Central Park just couldn't be bothered. LGA 0.3, JFK 0.1 and EWR 0.1. We've all grown accustomed to it but it still doesn't make it right. Just use the measurements at LGA for NYC official snowfall totals and you can still use the temperatures at Central Park for the official daily highs and lows. In the two years the Conservancy has taken over they have been at least the equal of the Zookeeper in under measuring if not worse.
  6. No you're not. If you're anything like me, and I think most of us here are similar in our feeling about winter and snow, you want at least three more storms if not more.
  7. Yes but if any sleet or freezing rain compresses your totals from your max depth at anytime today you go with your max depth for the days storm. At least that's the way I now understand it, even if I don't totally agree with it.
  8. 45.0 inches for the season. Considering how above normal the temperatures have been so far this winter, I can't complain about the snow totals.
  9. Looks like 3.8 inches will be my final tally. 45.0 inches for the season. Considering how above normal the temperatures have been so far this winter, I can't complain about the snow totals.
  10. As per the latest NWS guidelines, make sure you get a snow board and put it on top of the snow and lie on top of it and compress the snow as far down as you can before you measure. Using this new method I have to revise my measurement from 3.8 to 1.1.
  11. 3.8 inch storm total. Just sleet here now and 27.3 degrees, maybe the sleet gets me to 4 we shall see.
  12. 3.8 inch storm total Just sleet here now and 27.3 degrees, maybe the sleet gets me to 4 we shall see.
  13. 2.7 inches so far. 26.2 and back to moderate snow down from heavy, smaller flakes now too. This thing has a mind of its own.
  14. 26.2 big flakes and heavy snow have returned. Beautiful.
  15. 26.2 and back to moderate snow.
