  1. are you still located in Worcester area?
  2. Was surprised to see NWS snow predictions, but with the airmass and that correction west....wouldn't be at all surprised to see the amounts getting upped further here with cold and fluff factor figured in.

    Right over the benchmark. 850/925 profiles below freezing throughout for ORH, KTOLL, probably not so good on coast and in the valley south of Northampton, but if they might score double digits. How do I know this? Magic. Could happen. Might not/probably not. Other than telling us a storm might be coming it seems like playing with the models this far out isn't much better than intelligent wishcasting.

    Next event will be denser than this last one inland, but not as bad as the one before it. I'm calling 15", basically all snow except for maybe some snizzle at the end. Why? Why not pretend to be psychic? Anyhow, looks good for us winter lovers, though I'm ready for spring when it comes. Around here if it comes in mid April will a strong early season, low dewpoint, warmspell (red flag territory when its dry, but not in this situation) to dry things up and make it green. Before that, let it snow!

    Holden measured 25. Closest to me (2 or 3 miles as the crow flies); Airport (about 5 mi) 21". I'll go in the middle for 23. Seems realistic considering the height of the drifts and sheer volume of it. No complaints here.

    Dude, you are welcome to join us. Just remember that New England is synonymous with crabbiness. It's not that we can't be friendly; some of us just don't want to be. Stick around, you'll get used to us. For instance, you would have been happy to get 4-6 inches today (and in a bad winter so wouldn't we), but when its seems like everyone around you got 20" and you got 4 or 6.....well it's sort of like watching the Patriots lose the Super Bowl.... kind of an entitlement issue.

    Maybe we should forego the "Morch" theme this year, Kevin. Can't think of a single syllable version for the month when its cold and snowy, though.

    I lived in Amherst and Northampton for a number of years. Truly the "happy valley", but we always seemed to get into the screw zone between the big hits east of us and/or west of us. A natural sinkhole for snowfall. Born here in Worcester and spent most of my years here. Rarely got screwed here unless it was a scraper/south of the pike deal or a rainer (like the first in this train of three). We almost always do well, even when we aren't the jackpot. A notable exception was the "Boxing Day" storm. The airport officially measured about a foot; here on the east side it was more like six inches of dust. I remember watching the bands to the left, bands to the right while we sat in the snow hole all night. I feel for the valley snow lovers; not as bad as CC for annual totals, but a lot of nickle and diming to get there.

    This has to have been the biggest snowfall of the season here. Got a good hit in January 17" with lots of wind, etc., but the drifting and general depth of today's storm outdid that one.

    Don't know if its off topic, but are those possible heavy bands of squalls they say may be coming tomorrow significant for further accumulations?
  11. March 12/13/14 Blizzard/Winter Storm/WWA etc

    back her up a few more miles....still coming down hard on my side of town, though
  12. March 12/13/14 Blizzard/Winter Storm/WWA etc

    Really ripping out there now...guess the band made it home!
  13. March 12/13/14 Blizzard/Winter Storm/WWA etc

    still nothing to sneeze at...figured it would be a SE SNE monster, just hoped to get in on one of those bands...
  14. March 12/13/14 Blizzard/Winter Storm/WWA etc

    Decent snow here...but not the mega-band type.... so close and yet so far....
  15. March 12/13/14 Blizzard/Winter Storm/WWA etc

    Think it will make it to Worcester?
