    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

    How much you got?

    Parents and myself both just short of key thresholds... Ewing 35.6" (just shy of 3 feet) My house in NoVA 11.9" (just shy of 1 foot)

    April 2nd Snow Observations

    Looks like it appeared better than it actually was, maybe a quarter inch or so new with it. It did come down hard, but warm temps and its brevity did not help.

    Negative. There are a lot of Martin's out there

    April 2nd Snow Observations

    0.6" in Ewing so far, they've been in that gap on radar. Lets see what this last band can do...

    March 20-21 Snow and other Observations

    Pretty much across the region from WV thru NJ, Feb 2015 was above normal snowfall. That was the last decent February. So, 3 bad ones in a row. El Nino favors Feb, and also favors areas south of 40N much more than La Nina. We probably need an El Nino, or next winter will likely be another dud for those of us below 40N. The only good La Nina winter I recall off-hand for those of us below 40N is 1995-96.

    March 20-21 Snow and other Observations

    Storm total precip was 0.95" in Ewing with the 8.0" of snow. Here's the daily breakdown: 3/20 - 0.3" snow (sleet) and 0.20" precip 3/21 - 7.3" snow and 0.73" precip (actually was a perfect 10:1, was surprised) 3/22 - 0.4" snow and 0.02" precip

    Hail. It counts as snow (really, that column should be marked "frozen precip" not "snow", since sleet gets flung into it too).

    March 6 -7 Noreaster Obs Thread

    Despite only 6.1" of snow at the 'rents in Ewing, a whopping 1.61" liquid equivalent for the day. Perhaps not so surprising how areas that were just a little cooler got a whole lot more snow.

    The variation of accumulation totals over short distances is incredible. I'm shocked that parts of Somerset County got over 20".

    Are you in Ewing, Hopewell, or Yardley?

    Physicsteve above is closer, he had 7.3”. Honestly paste jobs like this will rip my parents off since they are barely 100 feet elevation. I’m sure higher parts of town got an inch or two more just because of the marginal temps.

    6.1" in Ewing is probably the storm total as its down to flurries now.
