  1. The 2017-18 Ski Season Thread

    Stratton was an abject disaster yesterday with the wind and so poorly handled by the staff there. The ticket takers said the lifts are except the gondola would be open and they were not. They had 1 lift open until 11:30 so we bailed and went to Okemo which was fantastic. Thank god for M.A.X. Pass. Overall January has been disappointing after such a promising start in December. Hoping for better in February. Taking the fam for a trip to Mont Tremblant.
  2. The 2017-18 Ski Season Thread

    Saturday I think would be better. With the slopes already hard packed, a day's worth of weekend skiing on the trails with temps above freezing and then a re-freeze on Sunday AM will make for some icy conditions on Sunday... and Sunday is football day :). Killington does get windy. I'm going to Okemo tomorrow. Seems to be less impacted by wind with a primarily east facing slope. You just get it coming up the top of the summit lifts, but the lift bubbles help mitigate that.
  3. January 4-6 Coastal Bomb Observations/Nowcast

    Still going strong. 15.5” Lexington, MA
  4. January 4-6 Coastal Bomb Observations/Nowcast

    Can't remember the last time I've seen a pressure drop like this in my hood. 40mb drop in 15 hours from 1021mb to 981mb since midnight.
  5. January 4-6 Coastal Bomb Observations/Nowcast

    About 9" inches in Lexington. Still coming down furiously. I'll take this over the coastal flooding. That looks horrible.
  6. Tropical Season 2017

    Check out the video in the main thread from St. Martin. Incredible destruction. Think again to those wanting a direct hit. My god.
  7. Tropical Season 2017

    GFS still remarkably consistent with the SC/NC landfall. Pretty impressive. Again, whether it's right or wrong is another thing but its consistency seems unusual. I assume the 897mb landfall is a bit overdone.
  8. Tropical Season 2017

    GFS has been remarkably consistent with landfall somewhere between LI and Chessie. Pretty impressive. Whether right or not.......
  9. Tropical Season 2017

    GFS at 884mb at 174. LOL.
  10. Tropical Season 2017

    Funny how the Euro has now been all over the place and the GFS is maintaining general stability. Whether it's right or wrong is another story.
  11. The Blizzard of the Ides, 2017 ...observation time

    About 10" in Lexington. Frankly would be alot easier having 20" of fluff than this cement. Still snowing, but does not appear to be accumulatinng much right now.
  12. The Blizzard of the Ides, 2017 ...observation time

    Really started cranking here in Lexington in the past 15-20 minutes. Heavy snow. Gusty winds. We never really get strong winds in my general area though. Really sheltered by some big trees, but you can hear the "freight train" about 100 feet above the ground. Pasty snow now as well.
  13. The Blizzard of the Ides, 2017 ...observation time

    Starting to come down pretty good inn Lexington. Been a slow start, but increasing intensity now. Maybe a bit nort of 2". Getting breezy. Not a pasty snow by any stretch.
  14. February 12/13 SWFE/Coastal Observations

    Deep deep cement pack now. Lexington, MA. Back breaking snow.
