    March 6 -7 Noreaster Obs Thread

    Heavy rate of heavy snow. Just tried sweeping the latest couple of inches off the car -- by the time I got finished, the area I'd started with five minutes before needed sweeping again; it had accumulated almost half an inch in that time!

    March 7-8 possible snow threat

    I'm amused that every single point on that map will be disappointed that their levels are getting reduced by the 0z run compared with the 18z... except for our little area, which sees an increase... so of course we're jumping for joy. Including me :^) Edited to add: Oh, sorry, I missed those spots in Ontario whose totals are going up. Profuse apologies, Canadians! ;^)

    March 7-8 possible snow threat

    For some of us in Delaware County the answer may be "waiting for Comcast to restore internet service". Mine came back three minutes ago, after a three-day outage. (Guess which website I went to first? :^)
  6. Are they really going to hold the Eagles' victory parade on *Wednesday*, even though it's likely to be slushing and raining all day?? (Adding source: http://www.pennlive.com/news/2018/02/eagles_parade_route_time_day_w.html )

    The first flurries in Swarthmore started around noon. Now it's up to Definitely Flurrying, but nothing is coated yet.

    Tropical Banter Thread

    I'd just like to say a big THANK YOU to the americanwx admins who have kept this site running smoothly despite the crush of members (and nonmembers) reading and refreshing (and rerefreshing) the boards during this HSECH (which is my abbreviation for historic southeast coast hurricane, and why sure you can feel free to use it :^)

    jfc is that the inside of the airport in photos 1 & 3?

    There's little difference between inside and outside once the windows shatter.

    Major Hurricane Irma

    Hurricane Irma: Storm Leaves Major Damage on Some Islands Also, Barbuda, home to about 1,600 people, was "so badly damaged that there is no communication" from the island, said Keithley Meade, director of a meteorological office in Antigua and Barbuda.

    EPA/NJ/DE General Winter Discussions

    In some sort of urban heat island, perhaps?
  13. Has anybody gotten sticky heavy snow, as opposed to powder? Wasn't the latter half of this storm supposed to transition to sticky, treebranch-snapping stuff?
  14. The band is back in town! It's still only moderately heavy, but the strong northerly wind (I'm guessing 25mph) is making it seem heavier. After five hours of basically nothing, it's nice to see how the other half (90%?) has been living!
