  1. Nearing the 2nd half of Meteorological winter:

    Like an old man trying to return soup at a deli...
  2. Days and days of snow disco

    Looks like the 0Z GFS is trying to make Wednesday a little bit more intriguing.
  3. January 4-6 Coastal Bomb Observations/Nowcast

    For my place, I would say we were between 10-11 inches. We are so wide open that is nearly impossible to be more specific due to drifting.
  4. January 4-6 Coastal Bomb Observations/Nowcast

    It is bringing it now - one last gasp. At least it did not run out of gas just to the west of me.
  5. January 4-6 Coastal Bomb Observations/Nowcast

    It keeps trying to ramp up here and then it flames out. Hopefully the heavy band can push just a little bit further east into Ellington.
  6. January 4-6 Coastal Bomb Observations/Nowcast

    There is still a reporting station in Norfolk.
  7. January 4-6 Coastal Bomb Observations/Nowcast

    It is just getting wild outside between the snow falling and wind blowing. This is quite awesome! (at least until tonight when I'm trying to snowblower in the crazy wind). Wind gusts are really starting to make down to the ground level whereas earlier, earlier you could hear it overhead, but it wasn't reaching the ground for the most part.
  8. January 4-6 Coastal Bomb Observations/Nowcast

    Wind is really ramping up here. Snow has let up a bit (still snowing pretty good), hopefully the snow intensity increases with the wind coming up.
  9. Jan 4-6 Coastal Bomb

    Heck - we managed 22 pages for the coating to 3 inches on Saturday.
  10. Jan 4-6 Coastal Bomb

    This thing has so many moving parts that have to come together correctly that Rube Goldberg would be proud.
  11. Long lasting intense Cold for New England

    -7 F here. We never have trouble dropping temps on good radiating nights.
  12. Dec 22-23 Snow/Ice Observations

    Power just went out here in Ellington. Don't know if it is ice related or not. Lucky we are on the end of two circuits on the grid so if one goes out, it will switch to the other in exactly 30 seconds, which it did.
  13. Dec 22-23 Snow/Ice Observations

    We capped at 32F as well. We lost the velocity on the northerly wind here - basically 0 mph which I would guess is going to make it difficult to drop the temperature.
  14. Dec 22-23 Snow/Ice Observations

    Looks like the accretion has ended here. 31 degrees here, but will be above freezing soon.
  15. Dec 22-23 Snow/Ice Observations

    Watching the temperature over the last hour+, the warming trend has stalled out. I'm sure it will resume, but the tenths of degrees has not changed in over an hour.
