    January 2019 Discussion II

    -7 at 11:00. Can't remember the last day we had that did not crack 0.

    Super, Duper SWFE

    Wind really starting to crank here. Not good for areas with a decent amount of ice in the trees. Almost no ice in the trees here - cold enough for sleet for most of the event. Temp down to 16 degrees.

    Winter Begins Jan 20th AWT

    Of the hundreds of pages written tracking this thing over the last week+ - this post sums it up best!

    Best of luck to you as well - hopefully not a repeat of October 2011. The winds here have slowly turned to the north after being out of the ESE for most of the afternoon. 27/18 currently.

    Thanks - this might get interesting yet...I've got the whole house generator and 1200 gallons of propane. Large scale power issues will really stink for people. Already got the call from Eversource warning of potential outages.

    Is this one of those times where elevation will help to get you above freezing or is the cold layer thick enough that 1000 feet will still be in the cold surface flow? Saw this all the time living in the CTRV - all the trees bent with ice at home and then drive up the hill into Tolland and it was well above freezing.

    Is there a push of cold air anticipated to increase in the coming hours? Temp has risen a couple of degrees to 29 in past couple of hours and dp is also jumped up 3 degrees to 18. Wind has been from ESE. Was hoping that being on the western side of CT might help out on this one.

    Pretty impressive here in New Hartford! Freshening up the snow cover!

    I was in Ellington. We did well over the last decade - no complaints. Hoping being at 1,000 feet pays dividends as compared to the flat lands of Ellington. We should do much better with snow retention here.

    I think you are still going to beat me (even with the change in location) - closing in on 3 inches.

    Thanks - we won't be able to compare the differences on the flatlands in Ellington as compared to Tolland as few miles away.

    Thanks! It's a cabbed (heat and AC) John Deere 3046 with a 59 inch snowblower. I grew up in Norfolk, so this is getting back to the old stopping grounds - not quite as good as Norfolk. I'm quite excited for this winter!

    Ironically - the delivery of a new tractor to do snow removal, may get snowed out on Friday AM. Now out in the NW Hills of CT with a 1,500 ft driveway with a pretty significant uphill section. Hope the new elevation of 1,000 delivers the goods much better than the old homestead in Ellington on the eastern edge of death valley.

    Wow - an inch less here in NE Ellington. Thunder really popping now to the east.

    Thanks - all things considered we are very lucky. We are heathy and able to move on from these events.
