  1. 32 degrees, and snowing lightly. A little less than a foot of snow outside. I was thrilled to wake up to a snow-painted world this morning. We finally got some real snow. The sleet part was also awesome. I truly love weather in all its guises (other than extreme heat:). This was a wonderful storm that gave many of us a true taste of winter...
  2. I’m glad you and others got some amazing snow!! Here in Newtown, we certainly didn’t get the hoped for snow amounts. Still, reading this forum the week leading up to the storm and the anticipation was a tremendous amount of fun. Also, we did get a lot of sleet, and I had never seen such a prolonged sleet event with such high precipitation. I loved being part of this snow event. As for the snow, maybe next time the snow gods will smile on my area:)
  3. Newtown. 31 degrees. We’ve changed to half snow. Fast small flakes with sleet atm that won’t add up to much. I went for a walk and have to say that while I’d have loved Red Sky’s snow best, I’m enjoying the uniqueness of this storm. We have INCHES of sleet outside.
  4. Newtown. 31 degrees. Still an onslaught of sleet pouring like a heavy rain, but there are finally a few snowflakes in the mix. Emphasis on FEW. Is there any chance my area might get some snow on the backend of the storm? Or we’re SOL here?
  5. Sounds wonderful!!! I’d be happy with a few hours of good stuff here. I’m getting a bit worried that sleet is all we’re going to get in Newtown.
  6. Newtown. 28 degrees. Sleet continues to pour down in an onslaught that looks like a heavy thunderstorm. I let the dog out, and she was ON TOP of the snow the whole time because of that icy crust. I hope snow is on the way, but I’ve enjoyed the sleet. It’s interesting and musical:) Time for snow soon I hope!!!
  7. Newtown... steady light snow... it’s already laying... nice bonus pre-storm.
  8. IDK why but for me, your comment really highlights just how awesome this storm could be. It’s so wonderful that 6-10” is “conservative.” We've been having such rotten winters lately that this storm feels like a dream.
  9. Thank you!!! As I learn more, I’ll definitely have questions. Before, I didn’t even know where to begin. I always failed at learning on my own because I didn’t know the science. I still don’t, but I’m finally truly learning. In all honesty, if there’s a hint of snow in the forecast, I turn to this forum to find the real forecast. With this wave 3 hopeful storm, I’ve finally learned what a Miller B storm is... I hope this storm happens... It will be an entirely new experience to understand WHY it’s snowing.
  10. Thank you! I’ll bookmark them! Somehow by staying in my literature & languages niche, I never learned the underpinnings of the science of weather. I did attempt to learn on my own but found it wasn’t easy like learning a language. I needed a teacher. I just discovered the class yesterday. A sad example of my lack of knowledge - I knew cold air is heavier than warm air, but I only learned yesterday it’s called buoyancy:D My goal is to be able to read the posts here and fully understand everything said.
  11. Please post weather the weather model runs you’re loving if it isn’t too much trouble though I might well be the only one who isn’t good at finding them on my own. I’ve been excited since I read Ralph’s posts here last night. The possibility is wonderful fun regardless of whether we get some snow or a ton from the storm. I’ve intended to learn for awhile now and am finally taking a Harvard (Free- using EdX) “Backyard Meteorology” online course. I learned about isobars yesterday:) I’m light-years behind all of you, but weather is one of my favorite things. I know weather (I was over the moon the first time I saw graupel), but I don’t know the science behind it.... or the science behind that:) I’m learning though:)
  12. Lovely snow squall a little after 11 a.m. today. The dog and I went out to play.
  13. Sleet is falling here like someone dumping sand from a bucket. Like @@Hurricane Agnes the sleet is audible over Taylor Swift and a fire playing loudly in the background. About five inches of snow with sleet starting to pile on top. 26 degrees according to Wunderground. Forecast has possible gusts up to 45 mph. Exciting storm!
  14. We’ve gotten two inches in the past 45 minutes. Amazing to have real snow after almost two years. I’ve been going outside every 30 to 45 minutes. Huge flakes pouring down. The word I’m choosing to describe this is... JOY:) 27 degrees according to Wunderground.
