  1. Blizzard of '78

    Damn I miss being able to participate in the festivities (gtg) present day. Back in '78 I was just beginning my duty to this Country, DMAF in Tuscon AZ. Never more homesick "only" 20 years old wanting to go AWOL. Thankfully I did not. Missed the whole thing but remember taking a trip home in late March. Took a drive down to Scituate with some buddies vividly remembering the total destruction, roads gone, boulders the size of houses still strewn hither and thither, foundations void of dwellings. Forever the Benchmark in my lifetime....
  2. Obs Thread 1/15-17

    Spent 9hrs below freezing this morning...bottomed out at 22.8F. Takes a NNW flow to get temps that low down the peninsula. Locals calling it brutal. It's relative but including WC, I'd call it brisk. Third episode this season with extended freezing temps. Mid-upper 70's by Sunday LONG LIVE WINTER!

    Some knew all along, might have been the BM modeled pressure combined with Astronomical Tide. With what you went through I now understand why you didn't pound on it. Ah, kind of think this will be an over-performer.

    Can't imagine the destruction if it was slow moving. Probably a (wobble) slowing and move more Northerly in the Gulf of Maine as it max's out. Any station confirm Blizzard criteria yet? These are the days I miss good Ole Mass.

    So with continued ~4-5hrs of nirvana at these rates. One might expect 12-14" region-wide... somewhere where the ribbons pivot and rot 24" is not beyond the realm of obtaining! Just the math, just doing the math. KU anyone?

    That's not what backside reports indicate. More in-line with 40-50mph gusts. Combined with continued deepening 50 might be to low.

    Many forumites (cells to the rescue) are going to lose power. It is incumbent of those who survive outage to keep posting things that are relevant. Don't think I've ever seen the location (ctr circulation) defined so prominently. All 50 states have snow on the ground.

    May the convective ribbons pivot upon your noggin. LOL Convective Ribbons Filling in. Max 46DBZ

    That is hurricane force wind. Scary aspect is continued deepening.
  10. January 4-6 Coastal Bomb Observations/Nowcast

    One word: Flooding. Starting to get visible frames on sat. Unbelievable, reeks of power. Hurricane gusts Outer Bank. Portending things to come especially with a closer pass to the Cape!

    OT Snowstorm - Earthquake. Absolutely no correlation what-so-ever. Hayward fault 4.4M

    Been there done that. Oh the pain. Hoping recovery is fast. Personally down and out for about 3 weeks. I have surgery (fusion on three discs) pending. Losing mobility sucks. Neurosurgeon appointment tomorrow. Bottoming out at 27F. Extended below freezing here ~5hrs and counting.

    The "snow accumulation maps" are all over the place...model de jure, believe the one that has the most. I'm calling BS, best map, forecast will always be the 24hr post event. GOOD-LUCK! The banding just S of the coast is wall of white gold. 20" jack somewhere between BOX, ORH, PVD.
