  1. A tail-end hint of something on a nearby spruce tree. Nothing else, even on car windshields.
  2. Nice picture. Down here in W Windsor NJ, it was nice to see flakes fly, but NADA, as far as any snow sticking. Not even on the trees. Enjoy your pittance, up there, since it's more than most of us got, I'll warrant.
  3. Sorry to clutter the thread up with another comment, but you are one reason why I read this forum. At 85, I am still learning. BTW, to add to the mess, I am waiting for you to start the thread on next weekend's chances.
  4. Might as well post this here too since Philly is mentioned. From 1972 until the end of 2003 I was on the West Coast, so don't have a good memory of the great storms I missed, obviously. The first one I remember since moving back is a nice Miller B(?) in Jan 2005. But there was a great storm in November 1950, and all we got in Jersey City was rain and no power. "The Great Appalachian Blizzard". Other storms behaved similarly, like one I remember in November 1953, where we got an inch of snow before it changed, but Philly got maybe 7". These storms cut too, although the synoptics may have differed. All of these storms have meteorological interest, regardless of how much snow they produce. - As long as I can get to the dentist on Tuesday.
  5. Better all rain or a washout, than a slop fest that freezes. IMO.

  7. Happy Birthday, Alice. From one who doesn't post much but who often gets hit by the Summer fronts at the same time!. Lurking just to your Northeast. May you have a long wait before you start creaking like me.
  8. Shows on Wunderground, but not in reality. A little white stuff would be nice for a change. I am at Princeton/W Windsor boundary.
  9. Good to see. Here just across the canal from Princeton, nada, although Wunderground is showing snow. Just a little white stuff would be nice.
  10. Mercifully, if I remember correctly, the 1965-6 records were set at the beginning of a long NYC subway strike, and some people were able to walk to work in the mild weather.
  11. Actually, that initial wave left over .2" - surprising, but they were big raindrops.
  12. Just a few puddles with this one. More later, I'm sure.
  13. HA, that line is looming and booming right to my west right now. Always appreciate your maps! ADD: Fast mover for sure.
