    April 2019 Discussion II

    Enjoying all the flood talk in here today. 2006 was bad up here. The Spicket river had roads closed everywhere in Methuen/Salem NH. Pretty sure I had a lot of days off of school because the High School was being used as a shelter and the buses couldn't run many of there routes. A kid I went to High School with made this video of it. Excuse the overly dramatic music..... Incidentally I missed the massive 1,000 year flood in Boulder Colorado in 2013 by only a few days as I was moving back to Mass. I was bummed to not see it as a weather geek but from what my roommates showed me I'm glad at the same time. The house we were living in got hit hard and my room was in the basement which got flooded out. On another note anyone notice all the Radars went down on weather.gov? Working fine on my phone on RadarScope however.

    April Discussion

    Big wet flakes in Methuen now. Probably will be the last flakes we see here until next season so I'm enjoying it despite how crappy it was out there the rest of the day.
  7. Not looking good. Look at all the people trapped on roofs escaping the surge/flooding. https://mobile.twitter.com/miguel_carreiro/status/1107695723506737154
  8. I realized this rather quickly after living in Denver and then Boulder for about 4 years (steamboat for a year as well during there second snowiest winter on record, that was fun.) I remember one day being mid 70's in Denver and the next day a full on blizzard. In a synoptic view though I'm still more interested in Nor'easters and New England weather in general. Those obs out of DIA are just crazy though.

    March 10 2019 Snow to Mix Event

    Hardest I’ve seen it snow all season here. To bad it’s not going to last but I’m going to go take the dog for a walk and enjoy it for now!

    NE snow event March 4th

    Off topic but that’s an ominous storm heading into Columbus, SC right now. Hard to say what’s going on as the velocity couplet is almost directly over the radar right now.

    NE snow event March 4th

    Anyone think this could be a paste job for some and cause some power issues? I can’t shake the thought of March7/8th last year here. 10 inches of straight man snow up in this area and you can still see the tree damage out there from it today.

    Damaging Wind With Forests Leveled

    I’m sitting here constantly hitting refresh on there obs page. Didn’t they just top the highest gust up there in over a decade a few weeks ago?

    Mount Washington 139mph gusting to 163. Damn!

    Damaging Wind With Forests Leveled

    Garbage can catastrophe out there. LWM peak gust is only 48mph so far but things seem to be winding down here. Not to shabby but I was expecting more. Not trying to downplay some of the higher gusts at ORH that were pretty impressive but I think my expectations are set high after Oct 29/30 2017 and the March 2018 paste job that rivaled the damage in the 2008 ice storm here. Really trying to find LWM data for the Oct event with no luck(any help much appreciated.) I think we would have had to gusted to 65-70 with the damage I had in my hood.

    Ya just took the dog for a walk here. Sounds like a freight train above but was mixing down better earlier.
