  1. That sounds vaguely familiar but honestly my memory isn't all that clear from back then anymore.
  2. I'd call that an "asos ratio" since that was back when all ASOS was even worse at snow:liquid ratios than it is now... back when all they had was tipping buckets. Now some (including all that measure snow) have weighing gauges.
  3. I've been concentrating on other things the last several years. I still keep close tabs and save materials, I just haven't assembled anything in quite a few years. I suspect that at some point, my focus will shift back towards it... I just can't say when, yet.
  4. Noticed a few of you have seen my YouTube page Thanks for the compliments. With everything going on, I forgot that today is the 25th anniversary of the greatest snowstorm of my childhood. If you'd like to relive it with me, I put all the TV footage I recorded then on YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=p-9RwNUuaYM&list=PLsKEUOGm0GB4tDPkhigFpNa8pdH0BiZyg

  6. Parents in Ewing are at 2.9" of snow for the season. Last time the season started off this poorly was 1993...
  7. 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!

  9. 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)
  10. After a while of sleet/rain, it went back to snow in Ewing, looks like the final will be 2.6"
  11. 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.
  12. I am? LOL I haven't moderated anything here in years.
