  1. Parents in Ewing are at 2.9" of snow for the season. Last time the season started off this poorly was 1993...
  2. Hi all, Been a while since I posted. I know many of you probably hope I'll get around to the winter storm archive again some day, and its possible I will, but since that day is not today, I figured I'd share with you something I have finally gotten around to... putting all my old TV recordings up on YouTube. Its a lot of TWC and some old local news clips too (mostly WPVI at first, later branching to the other stations). So far I'm only thru early 1996, but since that did include the blizzard, I thought it was time to share. I'm linking to the "playlists" page since that's the most organized, but if you want to dig thru every single video, just skip over to the videos page. https://www.youtube.com/user/famartin1/playlists Hope you enjoy!

  4. An impressive 1.17” of water came out of that 2.6” of snow in Ewing... (some was rain and sleet of course, but still a lot)
  5. After a while of sleet/rain, it went back to snow in Ewing, looks like the final will be 2.6"
  6. Honestly I hardly post much, period... being back east means I'm more distracted by other interests more than ever, so something else had to give. It ended up being the forums (the lack of time had kinda already halted further development of the winter storm pages back around 2013). Not a lack of interest, just not enough time to post anything useful.
  7. I am? LOL I haven't moderated anything here in years.
  8. Actually, you shouldn’t clear even if type changes if it hasn’t been 6 hours from the last clearing. So... if you clear the board at noon, it snows til 3 then changes to sleet, you still can’t clear the board until 6.
  9. 3:1 or 3.5:1 is about right. Model snow map output continues to have issues discriminating. In any mix scenario I would always look closely at thermals for myself.
  10. I was looking for a foot plus storm, but never managed to find one. I did find a historic storm with the October 2011 snow, so that was worth it, even tho it wasn’t that much in total.
  11. Kamu said I needed to provide some guidance on sleet here. Without reading the whole thread, can someone bring me up to speed?
  12. I snow chased cross-country a couple times back when I lived in Elko
