    Well said. Disheartening that so many people just tow the party line and think this is all just tree hugging.

    In fairness there are plenty of winter lovers there and unlike here, a lot more winter activities to take advantage of. Almost moved there 20+ years ago. Had a job offer in your line of work in Portland. My new bride didn’t want to move that far so it didn’t work out, but we’ve been back many times. It’s a great place to live and raise a family. My advice, take a hard look.
  3. Pacifics bigger than all land masses on earth combined....makes sense how much it can drive the pattern.

    30F with light sleet and snow in Wading River. 1.75" on the ground. A bit snowier out here than it was when I left Hauppauge around 3:30..
  5. Back to all snow in Hauppauge, 28F.

    Its been all sleet in Hauppauge for the last hour or so ... about 1/2" on the ground. Seems like the north shore has held on to more snow than sleet, my son sent me a picture from Wading River that looked like over an inch, similar to your report. Nice to have a thread to report on!
  7. Why was it a once in a lifetime pattern?
  8. Occasional flurries and 28f in wading river, north shore Suffolk county.

    Have to agree especially in our backyard. At least this year you can look to our north, west, and to some extent south and see wintry weather. We've had some years where it feels like winter is on hiatus nationally, that hasnt really been the case this year. Bad luck in a sense..

    Thoroughly agree -- especially when building a snowpack, which unfortunately isnt the case here.

    You should let upton know, they are forecasting numbers similar to what’s being discussed here. A couple of inches in the metro actually would be notable given what’s transpired this year.

    We’re at mt snow skiing in a sweatshirt. 52 at the base lol.
  13. Car guys say there is no replacement for displacement...same can be said for elevation for fans of winter.
  14. Same with our place in the Adirondacks. Not all bad years here are good there, but this is a year where driving north brings you pretty quickly into a deep wintry landscape. The upcoming week doesnt even look that bad at that latitude.
