    Yeah it’s coming down moderately in NE Buffalo. Sloppy accumulation at this point.
  2. Upstate/Eastern New York

    Yeah, it's garbage at north campus. Pixie dust.

    North of a line from Lackawanna through Lancaster, you’re usually gonna get no more than 50% of the snow of points further south, and very few LES monsters. But we still see more snow than basically any place outside snowbelts and areas of orographic lift.

    Undoing QE would be deflationary, and would offset inflation pressure from wage gains. But yeah, interest rates are going up. That said, in lots of places without a booming local economy, housing prices may drop slightly to counter higher interest rates. It’ll be a while before housing prices level out in the Buffalo metro. Absent a big recession, maybe 2020/21.

    We ended up with about 4.5” in NE Buffalo. Not really a “congrats BUF” event, and definitely not enough for anyone who missed it to be justifiably frustrated, but enough to add to the totals in hopes that we might not have be crawling towards yet another dramatically BN season.

    You’re being irrationally cynical. What if I told you that the UB group didn’t “figure out” the method of analyzing hydrogen isotopes from leaf wax, but are instead using a methodology that has been developed and refined by geochemists over the last twenty years? And what if I told you that the same method is actually used by petroleum geochemists in the extraction industry (http://www.academia.edu/35439672/Carbon_and_hydrogen_isotopic_compositions_of_n-alkanes_as_a_tool_in_petroleum_exploration)? It’s vitally important to be skeptical in science, because new scientific claims must be tested empirically. The default assumption for a new claim should be that it is something to disprove. But that skepticism is a scientific skepticism. Sneering at scientific research because it sounds outlandish to non-scientists or because it has the potential to threaten dearly-held assumptions is the opposite of science.

    We were gone for 8 days. Leaving early in the morning, we got to Hawaii later that same day, in the late afternoon. Then we left seven days later in the evening (around 8 or so) and got back late afternoon the next day. Flying west, I didn't have much jet lag - we checked in and got some dinner and walked on the beach in the evening. Flying east, I was pretty tired after I came home, but we left late enough on the day of departure to be able to spend much of the day in the water and sun. That left five totally open days (as well as the evening of day one and most of the last day) to explore and take it easy. One of those days was the wedding and dinner, but we got a lot done in the week - besides sun and water: Haleakala sunrise, the road to Hana, the Maui Ocean Center, Lahaina, reef snorkling. Totally worth it, and I would do it again.

    Went to Hawaii about 10 years ago for a family wedding. We were on Maui but went all over the island. One of the best, most relaxing vacations I have ever had. I’d go back in a heartbeat, and March seems like an especially good time to go.

    Moved back over north campus and coming down hard.
  11. Upstate/Eastern New York

    Yeah, I'm looking at my security camera and it's coming down pretty good at home. We're a few blocks north of Kensington, so not far from the best stuff.

    Snow stopped up at North Campus, and the sun is out. But nice surprise, a few inches here, and when I left for work this morning, about 4.5" since yesterday afternoon in NE Buffalo, with snow still coming down.

    30 minute flizzard totaling 0”

    For the most part, this sub forum puts clown maps into perspective. We don’t have many of the weenies who get into a frenzy at a clown map and are mad when it doesn’t verify.

    I went out to snowblow, and there was definitely more than I originally thought. Probably about 8.5” - right on forecast. Definately a denser snow than most that we have around here, if ratios had been more in line with those cold snap snows, we would have had more than a foot.
