    Last day of snowcover for a while here in Clarksburg after a 20.7°F morning. Up to 41°F already at 10:30am.

    I'm bummin' that the warm makes a comeback before next weekend. 40F is too warm as the nice, new surface will be too soft.

    Temp here in Clarksburg is back down to 36°F after a high of 39.8°F and a low of 23.6°F this morning. The warmup certainly has been muted under the inversion. Should be an interesting change tomorrow as the inversion erodes and the rain moves in. Ground is still completely frozen with most snowcover still there after highs of 46 and 39 the last two days. Here’s the back yard at 9pm this evening:

    It’s like I was stuck in a interstellar worm hole all day. Glad to come out in a recognizable place…

    Agree. Surprised to come home to full snow coverage still and complete sleet/ice coverage on the driveway and walk to the front door. High was 46.1°F and temps are quickly down to 32°F here at 6:30pm. The high at 10m was 48°F and the 2m high was my 46°F. I’m guessing the 2” high never got out of the 30’s as there was a cool ground fog when I got home that was only around 12” deep. There’s the staying power of permafrost for you...

    I keep looking around for a "dislike" button but can't seem to find one.

    Just a hair above the 32.018°F threshold. If Mt. Parkton was above 120,000ft., then you would have still been below freezing....

    Really exceptional run of below freezing temperatures, for sure. I topped out at 31.1°F last night at the 11 o’clock hour. Just went above freezing here at 9 o’clock and I am sitting at 33°F. I’ll calculate my hours when I get into work later. A Really exceptional run of below freezing temperatures, for sure.

    It’s an ice rink here in Clarksburg. 2m temp is 28.8F and the 10m temp is 36F.

    At the daily high of 30.7°F here in Clarksburg right now. Everything, including the Carthage-level salted roads is a sheet of ice. Picked up 0.2” of sleet (and around 20 minutes of graupel) and, looking at the trees and cars, looks like 0.05” of ice accretion. 3 cars in ditches within 100m of the house out on the road. Nice nite out there but not one to be driving or walking unless your name is @Jebman

    Sure did. It was glorious; 19°F, the ice was 8 inches thick and a beautiful defused sunlight shining through the overrunning cirrus. First picture is some of us chilling by a roaring fire and the second is of me and my twin sister.

    Bringing this to the top of the thread. Swing by and say hi! Sitting at a balmy 13.5°F in Clarksburg at the noon hour as I pack up my skates to head out.
