  1. Is the NAM depicting a better phase than the European models? This event is only 36 hours out for my neck of woods. Both pieces of energy are over land now. I'm curious as to why there are such big differences.
  2. Only around 60 more model runs before the thrill of victory or the agony of defeat.
  3. Fine snow falling. Cleaned off the satellite dish once. Looking forward to a trip tomorrow to Whiting and then Beverly Shores to see the wave action. Good week for vacation.
  4. Are there significant timing differences between the models?
  5. I'm optimistic. We will keep the ground covered another week.
  6. Yard measurements of 3.5" to 4.5". Wait and see on the LES. Grass is covered for the first time this winter. It looks like there was some sleet at the onset. There was a glaze of slush/ice on the sidewalks.
  7. Really ripping right now. Narrow band of snow coming through. Hope it sticks around a bit.
  8. The bar is just over the grass. Cover the grass. Hasn't happened yet. That's my bar.
  9. I think at worst we get some backend snow. Beats Friday's into Saturday's snow to rain slop that is now frozen solid.
  10. It's not snowing here. It's 30, the wind is picking up, and a light drizzle is falling. It's not freezing yet.
  11. I guess with all the recent variability, I prefer my spot of low expectations with the arrow pointing up, as opposed to expecting a heavy snow scenario, albeit with high bust potential. Those are the worst when it busts. I'll just watch the trends, and hope that the cold air finds its way into far NWI while moisture is aplenty.
  12. As best I can tell, it's not freezing to pavement yet. Just walked outside, but not away from house. Could the wind have anything to do with it?
  13. Sleet/rain here. The rain is not freezing to surfaces yet.
