  1. Snow/Slop Storm 2/17-18 Obs

    Wound up with 3" here on the deck, around 2" on the grass, and zippo on the blacktop driveway. Felt like a spring event.

  6. Feb. 17th-18th, 2018 Bowling Snow

    I’m about 20 miles east of that and think I’ll be mostly snow as well, but we’ll see.
  7. Feb. 17th-18th, 2018 Bowling Snow

    Disagree. It’s been warm and rainy and a shot of snow overnight isn’t changing the pattern, so there’s less enthusiasm than normal.

    That’s why the best contributors to this forum, like yourself, offer commentary on upcoming patterns using words like may, possibly, likely, could, should etc. It is a nice style contrast to those here and elsewhere that write as if they control future patterns.

    Our place is off Northway exit 25. Its pretty common to see bare ground up to Bolton Landing. Continuing north the elevation starts to really tick up, and if you head west you quickly reap the benefits of lake effect.
  12. Looks to be a good week up there, hopefully we have chances the following week along the coast.

    Agreed. Worst of is it along the Hudson and it gets better the further north and west you go. Our place is a little too far east for consistent lake effect. Wish I had thought it through better 20 years ago. 100” average is still ok though.

    There’s a meteorologist that posts snowfall records for Indian lake, ny near our place in the adirondacks. He’s got the seasonal Average at 110” there for the last 25 years. The best single month features 62”. Pretty amazing that Newark can match that.
