    April 14-15 Snow Potential

    Nice to see the 4.9" in the climate summary books. The 3.6" total report I criticized just seemed like another inaccurate guesstimate and the same ole raise an eyebrow to the quality and accuracy being put in to the records over the years at the airport.

    Congratulations and welcome! Good to hear there is an observer now. Pretty sure that hasn't been the case for many yrs prior and their accuracy/guessing on totals was atrocious.

    3.6" but 4" on the ground. Trash. Its a shame the storm totals have no truth to them ever at the airport. 0700 PM SNOW 1 SW SAINT FRANCIS 42.96N 87.90W 04/14/2019 M3.6 INCH MILWAUKEE WI OFFICIAL NWS OBS MILWAUKEE MITCHELL AIRPORT STORM TOTAL AS OF 7 PM CDT. 0.35 INCHES LIQUID WATER EQUIVALENT, AND 4 INCHES ON THE GROUND.

    Back home from the Bucks with a fellow board member. Definitely a storm to remember along with last weeks event it will go down as two of my top 5 most enjoyable events in a while. No pixie what so ever. Really didn't except much from today's and I think the GFS for a couple runs leading up to today had us shut out. She was blowing pretty good yet and even drifting along with filling of the ditches on the e/w road I live on. Power went out around 7:30 the wife said for a few mins. Road was plowed clear pretty good when I left at around 4:15 and it looked like this when returning at around 9:45

    Because 3/4 of an inch of cold rain is so much better than snow.

    No mistaking that rumble of thunder.

    Wife said the rumble we heard was thunder. I attributed it to the power plant. She wins. Snow sticking to our road now.

    Yeah last week I figured we were almost a lock to get another 15"+ this season. Not so sure now sense this week isn't going to pan out as I'd hoped and the week after doesn't hold a good hand ATM.
  17. Agree. I'm always jacked once through, Wausau. Rhinelander and NE, WI have been on a nice run of winters. They are in a nice location it seems to cash in on cutters even ones that hit us good can tickle them.
  18. Back to Wausau. I do like how they can sneak fall and spring events in. But come March and April the staying power of snow even up there sucks and snowmobile trails would more than likely be closed anyways. And they def hold ice on the lakes much longer than us down here but again that's not even a top 15 spot in the state to drill holes in the ice for me. That's area a is drive through county for me. Never get old rolling through there and seeing Rib Mt always snow covered towards Thanksgiving.
  19. Impressive. I would have bet the farm you would have been down to patches at best in full shaded area and MSF piles at the end of that 1st week in Feb. Def a shut the shades period here. Our snow was pure fluff. I'm assuming your pack was loaded with some goodies to help preserve it.
  20. It's horrible. Can't get through that area fast enough to the north woods. Ice Fishing is meh up there. Surely wouldn't drive there to ice fish when most lakes north of Illinois are normally locked in by the New yr anyways. Only thing I dig about that area is the river and Rib Mountain.
  21. Wausau is terrible for a snow weenie. Might as well live in MKE, or SE, MI for even more torture of nukes.

    Sucks to lose a nice stretch to cold and dry especially as we wind down winter to where it becomes more thread the needle climo time. Models have head faked cold and dry only to have, Ricky tell us to be patient and the look will change. Though this one feels like it has legs. March Sun is better than Jan sun. Enjoy.
  24. Sure hope we have a more relaxed pattern as we enter April. Can't take more months on months of snow and rain and Lake, MI. influences with warm fronts setting up shop at the border.
