    Please help me with a personal tragedy

    Thank you for posting this and giving us a chance to help our online friends. I understand the bond and closeness that can happen between next door neighbors. They can become family over the years if you are lucky. I am praying that you and your neighbor family will feel the strength they need to get through this. Spending even a second thinking about the weather seems so ridiculous at the moment.
  2. I hate the timing of this storm, commute-wise. But I am just waiting until morning to see how it all shakes out. Who's with me? Ready for anything, but it's just not worth it to spend any energy on this.
  3. Seriously. Some people here regard snowfall at their house as some kind of personal achievement. It’s physics and geography and nature. We are either under it or not.

    I honestly don't look at as getting screwed. I just think of how many things have to go right for *anyone* to get snow, and when I get some it makes me very happy. I grew up in Phoenix AZ so for me all snow is special. I'll take a 6-10er any day over the one-long-sunny-day I grew up in.

    He has some great graphics on his Twitter. I follow him and check in there often because he really is a true wx weenie. Always worth a look, especially for the long range.

    Well he was right about the center of the system being so far east, but he never caught on that it didn't matter.

    I stole your snow. And I'm not sorry lol. I am usually content with my parade of 6-10ers. But this was a special day.

    All my measurements averaged out to an even 20", and I came in to look at the NWS snow totals page. 20" for Woonsocket. So 20" it is. Still snowing somewhat, but bfd. I can't remember ever getting 20" in such a short duration. The bulk of it came between sunup and sundown.

    It makes up for so many storms. You are amazing with your dates, btw. Savant for certain.

    If he was here he'd be whining he didn't get 30". Seriously.

    Sorry for stealing people's snow, but I have had mine stolen oh so many times. Average measurement just now was 16.5, and it is just dumping snow imby. Winds picking up again, vis: endzone to the 50 yard line. Genuinely sorry for the snow theft victims.

    Lightening up here as that band heads west. Gusts are picking up and temp down to 27.3. Super light fluffy snow on top of an inch or two of slush. All my measurements were either 10, 11, or 12", so let's say 11" in N RI so far. And the power is holding on after being restored at 10 am. It's all fun and games until the power goes out.

    200 yards? Are you sure it's that much? 2 football fields? My vis is like from the endzone to the 30yd line. 100 feet and then a wall of white.

    Yeah Mendon is not far from me and I think my estimate of 5-6 was way too low. I am going out to measure now. My vis is literally 100 feet.
