  1. It has to be almost impossible to measure under these conditions. If you live in a major LES belt and are serious about snow observing the best bet probably is to have dual concentric snow fences to cut down on the blowing and drifting snow like this:http://www.crh.noaa.gov/grr/snowsensor/ That would likely help with the BL/DR SN filling in your cleared measuring area in the center. Edit...of course that does little good when the depth eclipses the top of the fences.
  2. Jesus. Are you only measuring every 2hrs or are you clearing too? If the clearing is every 6hrs+ then that's just wild. Clearing every 2 would nullify your total and cause quite a bit of inflation. Obviously you know that though. Can you make a depth OTG measurement at all or is it near impossible right now?
  3. Just don't clear more frequently than once every 6 hrs. We don't want your totals nullified.
  4. The Blitzortung network is picking up some strikes over Lake Erie. http://www.blitzortung.org/Webpages/index.php?lang=en&page_0=33
  5. heh...ouch. 4 SSE BUFFALO 45.0 700 AM 11/19 COCORAHS 4 N BUFFALO 3.5 700 AM 11/19 COCORAHS
  6. FYI folks... I'm going to be performing a little thread housecleaning to separate this LES event out of the general discussion thread. I think this event is worthy enough to have its own thread and be pinned. I may close the general discussion thread briefly just to get everyone posting in the newly created one. Thanks!
  7. Impressive obs out of ART today too...frequent 45mph+ gusts and M1/4SM-1/4SM +SN. http://www.uswx.com/uswx/text.php?q=03276&h=24&stn=KArt
  8. The breeze is the key. Those 82/78 nights never bothered me by the coast.
  9. AVN should be running soon. https://web.archive.org/web/19970605010239/http://wxp.atms.purdue.edu/aviation.shtml
  10. The days when each NWS site was uniquely styled... https://web.archive.org/web/19991002001131/http://www.nws.noaa.gov/er/box/oldframes.html https://web.archive.org/web/19980202015033/http://www.seis.com/~nws/frame.html https://web.archive.org/web/19970501163243/http://www.nws.noaa.gov/er/btv/ That is some quality HTML right there.
  11. I liked Gopher...nice image there using Netscape. lol Old school UM weather, Unisys, and WU were pretty good too. They still have their old school web awards at the bottom of their page...the site is pretty much defunct now though. http://cirrus.sprl.umich.edu/wxnet/
  12. This used to take me like 10mins to load.
  13. Yeah I don't recall...sometime in the 80s.I was talking about the TWC forums. Many of us went from TWC to WWBB. Some were on AOL keyword weather back in the mid 90s too.
  14. Keene is a disaster right now....fires, cars being tipped over....my god
  15. You want just a digital thermometer and not a wx station correct? What's your budget? A quick Google search turned up this... http://www.kmart.com/extech-big-digit-indoor-outdoor-thermometer/p-03416322000P?prdNo=3&blockNo=3&blockType=G3 I'm sure there's a lot more out there. Of course it has an accuracy of almost +/- 2F and that gets magnified because of the lack of shielding.
  16. A temp/dew of 51/35? Probably sleet or graupel?
  17. There's a few wx station threads around the forums...here's one... http://www.americanwx.com/bb/index.php/topic/40865-weather-station-question/ What's your budget?
  18. There are a few here in parking lots shaded on the north side that never fully melted from October. I still have 1" OTG from the series of January crap that has slowly been melting/sublimating away.
  19. I've been reminiscing about this tonight...
  20. If that happens again I'll be going on a banning spree.
