    2018/19 Winter Banter and General Discussion - We winter of YORE

    Back down to -9.5° F after a high of -7.8° F and a low of -16.1° F. A most impressive cold day. The great pixie dust blizzard of 2019 is winding down now, finally after nearly 24 hours. With the wind it's impossible to tell how much it accumulated though as it blew off the snow board. My other board that I use for the snow depth had a 0.6" gain though.

    -16° F with light snow this morning...the coldest I've ever experienced! It's a fine pixie dust that appears more like haze.

    -16.1° F this morning with light upslope snow. It's likely the coldest snow I've ever experienced; a fine pixie dust that appears more like haze.

    Posted this in the obs thread, but I had 11.3" total. Quite a bit of sleet contamination, but fortunately no freezing rain, so snow blowing was easy. Season total is up to 81.2" with about 28-29" snow depth.

    Updated measurement of 11.3". 81.2" for the season so far.

    10.5" of new snow and sleet as of 2 PM when I went out to snow blow, but we've had some off and on light wrap around and upslope snow showers so we may have gotten another 1/2" or so. There was an 18" drift in front of the garage door when I opened it, but snow blower went right through it. Dry, but dense snow. Down to 4.4° F after a high of 19.5° F. I'll likely have a subzero max tomorrow and then rain midweek. Euro says bring out Noah's Ark, awful...

    Back over to all snow now, maybe I get another quick 1/2-1". Albany looks like they had a N wind overnight, so maybe they had some upslope enhancement with the Catskills off the S and SW of them? They only had one observation at 7 AM that looked like sleet and they ripped all night.

    Sleet is beginning to slowly transition back to snow here. Weird snowfall distribution around E NY and W NE per the PNSs from ALY and BOX. There's actually more snow in the valleys out by Albany and down by Greenfield, MA than in the mountains, which has me scratching my head. No sure what could've caused this...cold air drain from the north down the valleys? But that was only in the low levels, not aloft where winds were southwesterly.

    Looks like around 8". Will go out and measure and snowblow in a bit. Sleet, 15.4° F.

    Congrats Burlington, VT? Even Dendrite gets a lot of pellets per the 12z NAM. What a disaster! No way I'm getting a 18-24" storm here now. 6-10" and then pellets/ZR should do it here, provided the front end performs as planned. It may torch into the 50s all the way to BOS with a low topped squall line featuring downpours and rumbles for you.

    18" average. About 8-10" of hard styrofoam underneath from November and 8-10" of soft snow from last week.

    No way in hell Bennington gets 22". I'd say 12" there maximum, likely less. They'll get shadowed on the east wind and may flirt with pingers for a bit Sunday AM. You'll more likely avoid pingers at your latitude, but 22" still seems too high unless you get some midlevel fronto action. I'd go 14-18" for your spot. 22" maybe here IMBY if I can avoid pingers.

    18z NAM seems to be keying on a midlevel frontogenesis band at 700 mb that runs from around BGM, GFL, RUT, LEB, to 1P1 give or take. This could very well be a high ratio fluff that adds up big time as the lift will be in the DGZ. You can see a secondary QPF max in this swath. Something to watch. Hopefully I can avoid pingers here, but it's going to be close the way it looks now .

    I can completely empathize with you there. Restaurants and bars are damn near impossible for me if they're noisy, which they usually are. Deaf in one ear, wear an aid in the other. Throw in being on the autism spectrum as well, and interpersonal communication is damn near impossible for me. I do the best I can, but I've never been good at socializing, networking, or making friends. Ironically enough, I have extreme difficulty with southern accents. I can understand northern accents (i.e. New York or Boston) much better than southern drawls. Maybe it's because I grew up in Connecticut (where we don't have accents at all). I can never understand people in fast food restaurants down south...I have to ask them to repeat several times.
