    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)

    After a while of sleet/rain, it went back to snow in Ewing, looks like the final will be 2.6"

    2.0" in Ewing, now sleet/rain mix
  5. 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.
  6. I am? LOL I haven't moderated anything here in years.

    2/10-2/12 Winter Storm Threat

    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.

    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.

    Wacky things you've done for snow

    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.

    2/10-2/12 Winter Storm Threat

    Kamu said I needed to provide some guidance on sleet here. Without reading the whole thread, can someone bring me up to speed?

    How much you got?

    Its hard to say we're due just barely two years after the biggest blizzard of my life, but I think we are definitely due if we get a third rotten winter in row down here. For the last 20 years, the average here is 21" vs. 28" in Ewing, the northerly lattitude there definitely makes a difference, even though I still had my biggest blizzard here (bigger than the biggest on record there, in fact). Thanks to the blizzard, we actually did better overall in 15-16 than Ewing, but the last two have been more normal for sure. Though this winter was a little painful watching the storms pass just north again and again, I can't say I'm desperate... yet
