  1. Central PA - December 2017

    I was born here so I kind of know the lay of the land. We live on one of the islands and it is amazing. Food is incredible here. It has gotten cold here, right now we are about 23F. I moved here o escape the cold . Late in 2016 I had a portion of my lung removed due to a cancerous tumor. I have been in remission and things are good except that if I get in to cold air, I cannot breath. We thought that the 2 or 3 days a year that it gets cold here wouldn't be an issue. as far as the history, this place rocks! I live about 10 minutes from both the city and Fort Pulaski. ( a 1800's fort). lots of tours and other things to do.

    So folks, the misses and I bolted NEPA and are now in Savannah Georgia. guess what? we are under a ws watch for 1 to 2 inches of white stuff. the first snow here since 1989... SHould be interesting. I'll continue to watch here as well. Blessings.
  3. New Year’s Eve/Day Minor Snow/Ice Event

    Just moved to the Islands near Savannah, light drizzle here. WWA for overnight for freezing rain.
  4. Hurricane Maria

    the only difference will be how far the debris fly. My concern is that the storm will increase in size and spread out the hurricane force winds. I believe this happens after an eyewall replacement.
  5. Local Media Coverage of Irma

    If you have a roku box, load the X channel. under the 24 hour streaming section, you will find a list of tv stations listed by state. there are a few Florida stations listed. also there are a few streaming on LIVESTREAM as well.
  6. Major Hurricane Irma- STORM MODE

    quick question: didn't Charley strengthen rapidly as it came up the coast? I seem to remember it going from a cat 2 to a cat for in one 6 hour period.
  7. Major Hurricane Irma

    IIRC Andrew strengthened over the everglades. Does anyone else remember seeing that? Andrew was upgraded to a cat 5 after reevaluation. Also my family survived Andrew in Homestead. I remember seeing the pictures of the devastation . Incredible.

    Thanks!, I don;t think we could handle another snowstorm...
  9. Central Pa - March Monster 2017

    Anyone see anything like this? one of my Cow-orkers sent this.
  10. Central Pa - March Monster 2017

    The lake effect snows have left about another 3inches today giving me more snow this week than I had in the last 2years. Most schools have closed again and road crews are drinking large amounts of monster energy drinks. My road is barely one lane wide and I have seen Facebook posts were no plows have touched some of the streets. One of the city managers posted that the main streets, hospitals and other critical streets would be done first and all alleys and minor streets would be done by the weekend.

  12. Central Pa - March Monster 2017

    travel bans everywhere. no work tomorrow again. I am hearing a general 2 ft outside the valley and a solid 22 inch snow fall here.
  13. Central Pa - March Monster 2017

    I forgot, it was a freezing drizzle for a bit and then some sleet. Right now it seems to have stopped for a bit.
  14. Central Pa - March Monster 2017

    I measured 22 and 24 in different spots. wild. I cleared part of my driveway earlier today and had to remove another 4 or so inches. I'll post picts later.
  15. Central Pa - March Monster 2017

    did the governor ever declare a state of emergency?
  16. Central Pa - March Monster 2017

    some of the heaviest snow is falling right now. barely able to see the school across the street.
  17. Central Pa - March Monster 2017

    the forecasting has gotten worse, BGM is afraid to up the totals because of sleet mixing in, but it appears that we could get another 10 inches or so in the next 4 hours. That would put us close to 30 inches. I had measurements of 19,18.5 and 18 while outside. (taking a break and going back out in an hour or so). the wind has picked up.
  18. Central Pa - March Monster 2017

    I cleared part of my driveway only to get to the road and find it wasn't been touched in hours. We are getting slammed again with a heavy burst. local tv met says 2-4 inches an hour until 3:00.
  19. Central Pa - March Monster 2017

    quick picts. total about 19 inches other is my deck.
  20. Central Pa - March Monster 2017

    19 inches right now. Picts coming soon.
  21. Central Pa - March Monster 2017

    I am going to measure shortly but we have to be close to 15 inches here. I'll take pictures. I have to clear a path for the mutt. Rick
  22. Central Pa - March Monster 2017

    we are just past 8 inches here. and it is still coming down... Hard.
  23. Central Pa - March Monster 2017

    we are getting hammered. I have 4 inches right now and I have not recalled seeing heavier snow in quite some time. Visibility is about 800 feet and I can only see that far because of the lights on the building. There looks like a phone line is about to snap in front of my house. I can see the gap in the wire. I am going to reprot it to the PD and let them decide....
  24. Central Pa - March Monster 2017

    we have about two inches on the snowboard. it has really picked up.
  25. Central Pa - March Monster 2017

    ground getting covered here, still a light snow. I'll check back in in a couple hours to see how things are going. I guzzled 32 ounces of gatorade to make sure I get up in two hours.
