    Can you bring that up north a bit? HPN, BDR, DXR, MGJ, POU and SWF would be nice.
  2. I wish I still had proper backcountry ski gear, that map makes it look like Petersburg Pass did well from this storm also and they were looking really good before the storm.
  3. Got home and measured 2". Not bad but would've been nice to see more like 4-5. I don't want to wait until next month for another shot at 6+ but it appears that's what it's going to be.
  4. So it sounds like you actually did pretty well, I heard 7-8" up there. My kids are living in the dorms at DCC and classes have been cancelled today. I guess that's what happens when you have 10k students that commute by car.

    Guess I should just suck it up and head to work in Westport then. Ehh, maybe after another cup of coffee
  6. I had really low expectations for this one anyway as far as accumulations go but it is turning out to be fairly high impact due to the ice layer underneath. Yup visually it's not bad, the crunchy stuff from overnight gave the wet snow this morning a nice surface to bond to so everything is coated in a nice .5" layer of snow.
  7. Well that explains why I was able to hear the 'flakes' hitting the house.

    What's happening up there this morning? My daughters are both at DCC and have their morning classes cancelled and the dining hall isn't open so they're frustrated.
  9. At 3:30am it was White rain and 28*. At 5:30 it was rain @ 30*. Now it's light snow hiding all of the ice @ 31*. Can't even measure this crap but .2 would be right judging by the stick the finger in test. I bet the roads coming off my hill are a pleasure.

    ^^ I still have nothing Fortunately it looks like it's just about here after being just off to my NW for the last 9 hours.

    I'm 56 miles from SOHO and can make it to the Henry Hudson Bridge in ~40 minutes pretty much anytime other than rush hour. I've had a few periods of light flurries that barely coated the ground but nothing heavier than that. Still expecting 4" just as I called it two days ago. If I get more great but I won't be surprised if I end up with less.
  12. Yeah I've never been sure how to phrase it but frontogenesis makes more sense than upslope, these aren't exactly big hills, I mean they're not the Tetons or Green Mountain Spine by Stowe It does seem that it happens like that frequently though and I benefit from it more often than not. Yay my car warmed enough for me to get in
  13. Great explanation of how to show better ratios with marginal conditions. Is that red dot on the simulated radar above supposed to be the Brewster Mesonet station? Interesting because it shows the upslope I talk about sometimes against the southern end of the Taconics when I'm getting an unpredicted additional accumulation.
