    Winter Re-Awakening - February 12-14th Redeveloper

    The last time I wanted to see a winter end as much as I do this one was 2011-2012, though this hasn't been much like 011-12 weather-wise. Minus the snow deficit here in SNE it hasn't been insanely warm this winter (leaving the cutters aside) and it has gotten pretty dam cold. For me its the unrelenting brown combined with the cold and the heart attack slushstorms. If the pattern ever got us into a train of serious snowstorms I'd have a rapid change of heart. But as it is, I'm looking forward to the fantasy of a mild and dry spring. Not looking forward to trying to move the cement on my walks and on the street. Shoveling water sopped snow at 63 is a lot less fun than it was when I was younger. Any how, que sera sera, or something like that.

    Thanks Tip. I am still a neophyte when it comes to meteorology. I get the 850 and 925 bit when a storm turns to rain or freezing rain or sleet, but when it comes to looking at the MJO and other charts I'm lost. Basically, we had a good pattern for snow, but the storms just didn't happen. Sometimes the opposite happens. I get that. Plain and simple.

    What's the status regarding a pattern change to snowier? I was reading a lot from the mets that it is coming and now it seems to have dropped. Still hopeful for a potentially snowier pattern for SNE?

    So maybe "Que sera, sera". Just like life. Enjoy the cold and the snow where you have it. And giving up now anywhere in New England is crazy. Serious winter can plow on right through March as last year shows. If not. At least the worst of the worst of New England: stiffling humidity under what we used to call a Bermuda High (SE Ridge), will not be with us for months to come.

    mea culpa, mea culpa, mea maxima culpa! Yeah, you are right. Must have been feeling extra crotchety and curmudgeonly. Waving my cane at the kids.

    So, I caved and believed NWS and Accuweather! LOL. Sometimes its easy to get sidetracked by the panicky girls and boys on the board. Must be too high on my estimate since all the surrounding reports were closer to 4" ---unless the north side of Green Hill has some very weird upsloping!

    I'm surprised by over 5 inches of snow in my neighborhood. Don't think it rained at all. Never got out of the twenties Fahrenheit. Beautiful morning bright cold and white.

    Hope springs eternal on the weatherboards. Personally, I think we will get slammed hard a few times in Feb/March with at least one period extended period (2 weeks+) of 24 hour below freezing temps in the interior of SNE. Time is running short. But hope springs.

    Love the fact we are all hoping to somehow squeeze a few inches out between the slop and the squalls. Its humbling to realize you really can take what you get and make the most of it. Now if a parade of storms comes our way some time this winter and we are on the snowy side of them we'll look at an event like this as barely worth commenting on. Of course blinding snow squalls and frigid temps can produce a real bad time on the highways.

    Wow these meltdowns are epic. Its just the damn weather girls and boys! In all likelihood everyone in SNE will get one good snowstorm, maybe a bunch of them.... but if not, really?

    Maybe someone should ask his parents to take him/her/ze/zit/zey/*((fds)***... for a weekend up in snow country (you pick, I'd go for Pittsburg NH or Caribou ME). Or, if said person has said persons license, borrow one of the cars and drive there to see that not very far north of us winter is rolling along beautifully.

    Perennials, meaning "blooms every year", can be killed off by deep frost in the ground (brought on by very cold conditions). Other plants can be damaged or killed, too. So far as I know, nobody takes their garden inside for the winter.

    same for Worcester? Hoping to get enough cover to protect plants in the garden from the cold after it. Just waiting for this miserable winter to end now. Without snow on the ground its pretty dreary and extreme cold only makes it worse. Funny thing though, if I lived a hundred miles north, it wouldn't be half bad. Anyhow, hope we get enough to protect wife's garden.

    Don't forget March. It could come in yards just when everyone wants daffodils. It's Metacomet's revenge arctic; cold and brown earth, suffocating humidity and gray skies. All the stuff you love about SNE weather.
