  1. Thanks guys. Appreciate the feedback. @J.SpinI don't report a storm total to CoCoRaHS, just my daily precip totals. I only report storm totals to the NWS (informally - I'm not a trained spotter), and on here via the wkevin.com
  2. Question for anyone who reports their precip to CoCoRaHS... @Ginx snewx @tamarack This is my first winter reporting to them and using a snowboard. Tomorrow's event looks to start between 4-5AM. I usually measure at or around 7AM. If I measure and report tomorrow at 7AM, I will have to wipe the board clean (in order to report appropriately on Friday). However, wiping the snowboard after only 2 hours of snow could impact the accuracy of my total storm measurement. I'm inclined to measure and report at 5AM, as I'm sure there will only be a T, then take my storm total measurement when the snow stops mid-morning, and report that on Friday. Is that what others do for events with timing like this? I did this for an event last week, but it looked like others took their usual 7AM reading, so my observation looked "wrong".
  3. 35/31 -SN Sleet changed to snow a few minutes ago. Just in time for that 45dBZ band to come onshore.
  4. I see a lot of this on social media, not just from the ski resorts. individuals will tweet their total with a picture of a ruler stuck in the snow on their deck, and do some rounding. Do you guys use those in your PNS under "social media"? If so, doesn't that discredit those taking actual measurements with a snow board?
  5. 7.0" from yesterday's event, .61LE Season to date total of 14.25". Looks and feels like deep winter out there.
  6. 7.0" event total on .61" liquid 14.25" on the season
  7. Ridiculous to cancel over this. Portland is open, everywhere else is closed. -SN 33F, great flakes and good growth here in PWM
  8. Is this the thread for municipal topography discussions? Asking for a friend....
  9. 1.5" new snow and .15 LE from today's "event" here in South Portland, ME
  10. 5.75" total new .86 LE First snow of the season in South Portland, ME
  11. 30/18, not a flake in the sky (yet). I'm expecting 2-3", we take for 11/15 South Portland ME
  12. Sounds right to me. I really don't understand the flip flopping from them. Perhaps @OceanStWx will enlighten us at some point.
  13. Would someone be so kind as to explain the one-eyed pig, and the impact it has on our wx when it shows up in AK. Please and thanks.
  14. Surprised to see pingers in South Portland... 40.5*
  15. What kind of trees? I put some spruce & arbor vitae in the ground this time last year, and they did fine. Had some minor winter burn on the south side, but with water and hollytone in the spring they bounced back. I know your climo and soil conditions are different than mine, but I expect they'd do ok. Especially since the ground is wet. My winter burn was caused, in part, by dry soil heading into the winter.
  16. I'm in for South Portland, ME Thanks!
