    December 2018 General Discussion & Observations

    There's something special about our southern friends getting multiple years worth of snow in one shot, that I find impressive. Sadly, they are ill prepared for 1/10th of what is projected to fall. Hopefully it warms up quickly for them.

    I'd like to see some semblance of high pressure in Quebec. Without it, I'd worry whatever cranks in the southern stream will cut. Apps runner or sorts.
  3. A needed day of fresh air and warm temps, relatively speaking. If Forkys correct, flooding in North Jersey from the major rivers should be watched closely. The Passaic is already forecasted to have minor flooding.
  4. Rain started around 5:00; picked up in earnest around 7:30. Pouring ever since. No idea how much... Nexrad radar is ridiculous right now. Also indicates 2.5-3" in my area. Not sure on accuracy.
  5. 8 degrees at 4:30 am. I didn't think I would get single digits.
  6. Getting colder throughout the morning. 17 sunny degrees out this way.
  7. Jersey too. Per NJ.com, Murphy has over 100 trucks ready to go!

    IMHO, it has everything to do with the obvious bloat of government and the lack of clear directives, but I digress and leave that conversation for a different forum. Cheers!

    I take no position with the city and points east; but I said it last night and all I have heard this morning confirms it, Murphy owns this. He closed all non-essential offices at 2:30 p.m. His "Office of Emergency Management" was on the job and monitoring the situation since 7:00 am per the Governor's website. They screwed up, they own it; hopefully they will be more prepared next time.

    Great. I'm heading from Tempe Wick to 202N shortly.

    Was a mix at 5:45 when I went outside to start digging out. Flipped to heavy snow at 6:30 and has not stopped. Ended last night at 8", compacted down to about 6". Fresh inch now on top.

    I would have had plows on trucks for starters. The local towns had some plow trucks; the state highways did not. They were sanding. I know, as I drove passed them. The best was the tandom salt truck, brokedown and being towed. I'm not speculating as to the status of the contracts with the companies responsible for the interstates, but the ball was dropped here. The towns in my area at least had early dismissals; could you imagine the outcry if these kids were on buses, as long as we were in cars? As a public employee, do you see the frustration of the tax paying citizenry? Anyway, I just hope more people weren't hurt and that the towns/counties and state learns from this experience. Enjoy the storm.

    I don't mean to derail the thread anymore than I did; but this was mismanaged from the state level on down; they own this.

    Home in Chester. 90/10 snow/sleet. Temp is steady at 28. 8" on the ground. Roads are a mess. Took 3 hours to get home which normally takes 35. 287 south of route 23 is closed. Fatal accident supposedly. I'd like to see what Gov Murphy has to say for himself; or is he out of the state?

    Out this way too. I saw some brine treatment this morning on the major roads. Nothing on the side roads.
