    13.9" here with 1.58 water content. If we could have avoided the sleet, probably would have had 20". Ratios were pretty good for a while. Albany is at 28.5" for the season, which is exactly average although it certainly doesn't feel like it after such a long break. New Ariens snowblower worked great. This stuff was hard to shovel! 13" on the ground. 7F / -1F and windy and drifty now. clearing up for the eclipse! Hudson Valley seemed to do better than some fo the surrounding high terrain. Thinking the cold air funneling down the HV added some extra lift? Can't complain. Nice event here. Hope SNE gets its turn soon.

    A clean foot on the ground with the top 6” penetrated by sleet. Must have had 14” before the sleet onset? Back to light snow here. Hoping to get back to 14”. .

    Trying to figure out if and when sleet makes it to Albany. Corr Coeff looks like mix line is between Poughkeepsie and Kingston and very slowly heading north. HRRR is slightly colder each run. Any thoughts? Definitely over performing here so far.

    Just went for a slow walk with my thrown out back. Painful but worth it...gorgeous out there. Dumping here. Great snow growth. 7-8" OTG. Still 8F. Hoping sleet stays south.

    Thanks. I hope so! I’ll be happy if I can walk behind my new snowblower tomorrow. .

    8F / 5f. Dumping here now. Up to 4" Probably close to 2"/hr stuff right now. Was supposed to ski Gore tomorrow but threw the old back out this morning putting my socks on. Will probably be up all night in pain LOL but at least I'll get to watch the storm.

    12F/8F with steady light snow here. Snow looks much heavier than radar indicates. Closing in on 1/4”. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk

    I think you'll be fine at Killington, but I guess there's a chance. I'm probably changing my Bromley plans to Gore. Will decide in the morning based on nowcasting.
