  1. 43f currently and the first fire in the wood stove is lit. Beautiful calm night.
  2. Just a trace of rain in my yard. Pretty amazing that the pendulum swung from insane rainfall in August and early Sept to a dusty scene now. Let's hope the cold weather responds later in fall with equal vengeance. I'm ok with the warmth for now.
  3. Yes after Pinatubo winter of 91-92 was lame. I was a freshman at Ramapo College back then and recall a mild and nearly snowless winter. 92-93 up at Ramapo had that big nor'easter in Dec and the superstorm in March. The best winter in my 4 years there was of course 94-94. My rear wheel drive car sat buried under a glacier for 3 weeks. I think my ecology class met on Wednesdays and it was cancelled at least 6 times.
  4. Gloria with 2017 ocean temperatures.
  5. I just got off the phone with my brother who lives in Ft Collins (60 miles north of Denver) and he reported 1/10 mile vis and ping-pong ball sized snowflakes (4"+ on grass already). They live on the west end of the city, close to the foothills so they expect anywhere from 8-18" of limb-snapping snow. My daughter just committed to enroll at Colorado State and i teased her this morning about their crazy weather swings.
  6. Forgot to post but 2.2" rain in my friends gauge in West Cape May. Had a nice little fire going in the wood stove last three evenings. I save the softer maples and poplars for early fall and late spring. I keep the oak, cherry, hard maple and black locust for the heart of winter.
  7. Thanks for the tips. Fresh snow of any kind is welcome. Re altitude, yes i have heard Loveland is rough but at least we acclimate to 5500 feet a few days before the big hill.
  8. Hello everyone. My wife, daughter and I will be coming your way this weekend to look at colleges and do some snowboarding. We tour Boulders campus Friday and CSU on Sat. As well as visit with my brother in Fort Collins. Hoping to hit up Loveland Sunday and Monday. Looks like our timing might be decent as the current warm and dry spell may break this week. Would greatly appreciate any insight about what to expect as far as weather and conditions. Thanks so much.
  9. True rates are weak. Radar looks lame too. Kinda disappointed.
  10. Literally flipped from rain to snow on 76th street in Manhattan in last half hour
  11. I'm hearing this storm may resemble mid Feb '14 storm. I hope not since down here we rotted in a dry slot and never flipped to snow. Weird event with lightning hitting the ocean right as my buddy and I were paddling out to surf. Scared the sh!t out of us be we were ok. Euro really puts us on the fence. Blend it with GFS and we are toasted. There is serious cold to work with so maybe we get a good thump before rain. Like Jonas
  12. Maple trees blooming, blueberry bushes starting to open buds, bunker active on the bay. Crazy early. I even saw laughing gulls on Saturday. Red winged blackbirds have been back for some time now too.
  13. Great ski trip thanks Agnes. Wife and I took 6 teenagers but it was fun. We all snowboard and we spent first 2 days in the woods with fresh snow then it torched but fun soft snow on trails. We go to Poconos to ride Sunday. Might be icy by then.
  14. Right when I want it least we will now be the cold spot in our region and will likely be for next 2 months. In the 50s here with a sea breeze. Got my fill of snow last week in Killington. Boy did we luck out!
  15. Sorry if this has been asked a million times before, but was that the most recent triple phased storm to impact our region? I have read conflicting information on that subject. Thanks.
