  1. We're getting some pretty heavy squalls over the past hour. Still accumulating efficiently. I'll probably have to get back out there once this band moves through, figured I was done. Live cam: http://ustre.am/16Txc
  2. About 8.5" of lake effect, still coming down but pretty showery in nature. Probably close to 11" OTG. Roads still snow covered around town, plenty of spinouts. Despite it being a fluffy lake snow, the bottom few inches was slushy due to the warm driveway melting it, making it a chore to remove. Here's my cam, but can't see too much because the snow is piled so high in front of the window: http://ustre.am/16Txc Probably the best LES event I've seen in northeast IL.
  3. About to hit 6" from the LES event so far. Puking snow right now. 8.5" OTG. I should sleep...
  4. LOT radar has been a mess for weeks. Two tornadic severe setups in late feb/early march and the radar was down. Just measured 4.25" new snow in past two hours. Gangbusters out there. Here's a crappy cell phone pic of current rates.
  5. Only a matter of time until you get in on the fun. Stacking flakes fast. Can you tell where Pepe Le Plume is based on traffic?
  6. Might be sitting pretty up here for a little while. The conveyor appears to be setting up per earlier hi-res models. Looping the 96-frame COD radar is great for watching the evolution of this coming together. Let it snow.
  7. Definitely coming down nicely. Let's see how progressive this will be.
  8. Fire hose fail? Was thinking we'd see a well defined single band by now.
  9. Convergence should really pick up as fetch increases and the upstream cold air mass filters in over the coming hours. Hoping to see that classic "fire hose" signature by the time it crosses the state line later this evening.
  10. Ballsy forecast. I'd cut those in half and hope for the best.
  11. That's part of the fun of LES. But let's be honest... more often than not these events don't work out as expected on this side of the lake. They can work out though... especially with a bomb on the east coast. Fired up the cam for the first time this "winter": http://ustre.am/16Txc
  12. Hopefully in due time. There will likely be some totals approaching a foot in SE Wisconsin. My concern is if a single band converges tonight it may be too progressive to dump much in our backyards. We'll see.
  13. Measured 3.75" so far out there. Several spots in the driveway are just slush even with the cold preceding temps and overnight snowfall. Hoping tonight's lake effect can deliver, but not feeling too good about it.
  14. Light snow has commenced. Hoping to break half a foot. Forgot what it feels like to look forward to a snowfall.
  15. That's true, but the path more well-traveled is the upper trail there, and it's a thick canopy of mature trees that could easily drop.
