    You ever make it to the Mullica River? I have a few choice spots there. Great perch fishing and stripers as well.

    The weather looks nice so that's a good start. Being on the boardwalk this time of year when it's relatively quiet and with the benefit of good weather is well worth a trip in my opinion. However, even on a warmer day the boardwalk can be much cooler and windy than just inshore depending on wind conditions. Some stores are open winter midweek- food, gift shops and such. With good weather, it may be more are open than closed but really, it's the boardwalk so there's not a lot more than food, gifts and getting your palm read. If you do OC boardwalk one day, you may want to take a short drive further south to Cape May and tour some of the historic properties there. It's a great day trip. Hope that helps.

    10" I'd say on the low end. Maybe 1ft but i don't get hung up on it. It was an over-performer though for real. Not nearly as much wind as forecast but I'm deep in the woods. Pup was happy but new Bolt under snow cover for a bit.

    I hate dry slots. I'm not far from it but nice steady snow atm and just starting to get a little wind swirling.

    Holidays 2017-18 Mid-Long Range Disco 2

    Old lurker here but talking of the 78' storm always gets my attention. And what a storm it was. I was on the southern Jersey coast and have rarely see such intensity- winds ripping and the air thick with heavy flakes swirling in every direction. It was a blinding snow. I was 16, walking a back road and struggling to stay stabile in all of that. You couldn't see an arms length away. All of a sudden, a flash and clap of thunder that literally made me jump backwards. I actually trembled for a moment before I realized what it was. I had no inkling that lightning and thunder could occur in snow. Sorry if this is off topic but I had a moment of weakness. Thanks to all AmWx posters. I really enjoy it since the days of northeasternuswx news group and DT firing off crazy posts lol.

    2/13/2014 Major Coastal Storm Observations

    Getting crushed here, central Atlantic county, for the last couple of hours. Don't know how long this will last but it's real impressive right now. Heavy snow, a little breezy but not much wind. We'll be close to 6" by 3am. I'm ready to hit the sack but too fun to watch. You would think I was 7 years old. Oh, there's a few more in this group who understand.
  11. Did anyone see the Cantore Knee the Noob? He's way cool.
  12. Close to 7 inches here in central Atlantic county. Over-performer +++. Winter score: A++ and its not even Feb. Amazing!

    What's the Weather Where You are?

    Kevin, In my area we've had low temps dropping far below projected lows for quite a few nights recently. Tonight we were forecast to be low of 57 but actually recorded 48. I imagine the entire MA region is similar. I use Accuwx for the forecast btw - maybe that's the problem? TIA for any insight you can share.
