    Man, you guys are a real barrel of laughs.

    It'll be difficult to verify the widespread .5"+ QPF from the NAM and RGEM, so expecting 4-6" is probably setting oneself up for disappointment. There will be a narrow band of better snow growth and heavier rates coinciding with transient fronto banding, but that may be all the way up in the Capital District, and will be difficult to pin down regardless. 2-4" is a reasonable call where precip remains all snow.

    It's a good question. The reaction functionality is useful for the most part (you don't have to quote 9 images just to say "thanks" anymore, though some people still do, inexplicably), although there are one or two who take it to extremes. I think the old rep system had a daily limit, and a fairly low one IIRC. Something like that would prevent waking up to 50 "confused" reacts from the same person every morning.

    If you have to report people more than, like, once every ten years, the problem is definitely with you.

    Yeah, they've been congregating down by the Verplanck waterfront. This morning there were "only" five visible at one time, so at least one guy just packed up and said he'd try again another day. That's how you know the reintroduction efforts have been successful. In truth, he was right... the eagles weren't really doing anything interesting. I liked this expression though.

    I had microspikes in the truck with me but figured, how bad can it be on a flat waterfront park? That worked out well...

    It was ridiculous trying to shuffle around in Verplanck/Peekskill this morning. Just 1" of completely smooth ice. Almost comical with a few of us flailing about while chasing eagles and trying to land on our keisters rather than our $$$ lenses. At least at home I have a little soft snow under the crust, so you can dig your heels in for traction.

    3.6" snow (including sleet) and .1" ice... a little more but definitely not enough to round up to .2". You're supposed to measure ice by averaging the thick and thin radii of accretion. That's a silly rule and one by which I refuse to abide.

    2.7" snow, 0.9" of sleet, and now a burgeoning glaze of ice. Dead-nuts to the Jan 20th storm.

    Yeah, sleet really sucks the big one. Does nothing for totals, does nothing for photos, makes clearing a pain, it's course and rough and irritating and gets everywhere... At least ZR looks pretty next day when the trees glimmer.

    I guess we're posting obs here now. Kind of confusing. Up to 2.7" as the mix becomes sleet-dominant.
  13. The stuff falling now really blurs the line between snow and sleet. Partially refrozen frankenflakes.

    I was at 1.6" about 15 minutes ago. I figure I have another 45 minutes or so until the mix line gets here... maybe I can make it to 3" before that happens.
