    February 23-25th Winter Storm

    Pretty Rare for APX to be hyping up the weekend storm so soon, especially being 5 days out with such detial, going to be an interesting next couple weeks with the pattern and storm tracks.

    I was away on a little trip with the family last week but when got back home was pretty surprised to see how much LES we received last week. I would say average depth is around 36" with other areas well into the 40" around the property. I will admit I had given up on this winter with the early season woes and being almost 35" down on this season but this second half has really been something. Oddly enough i am ready for spring, LES guns are not going to be firing at full anyhow with the growing Ice Pack on the lakes. Looking at the next ferw weeks still looks pretty set in full winter mode for most of the upper Midwest. Edit: Gazing at today's satellite, looks like there is much more open water than this graphic depicts which is not all that uncommon,

    Winter Storm - February 11-13, 2019

    Picked up about 10" from the synoptic event, then another 10-12" of LES since early this morning, the lake guns really fired up way more then expected even with APX who was caught off guard. Total snowfall the past two days about 22". Have about 34" OTG atm after settling.

    Around 10-12" so far, another 3-4" tonight and some LES tomorrow not a bad synoptic system for my area. Snow depth around 28-30" right now.

    Looking pretty good for you Bo, seems like the UP has been really cashing in on synoptic events this year. Looks like 8-10 for me with a little LES behind it.

    Nice pics Bo, I picked up about 6-7" since yesterday, snowdepth is about 18" or so, we lost about 12" from the torch, if not I would be over 30" OTG. Just not this year, usually hit 35" at least once in a winter but with the torches

    2018-2019 LES Season

    Pretty strong band setup last night for a couple hours just north of my location, 2-4" per hour rates per APX, doesn't happen very often in our LES Belts to see that intensity.

    Picked up about .15 of ice, then got hammered with LES overnight, picked up about 6", wind was howling but to my surprise did not lose power.

    Overrunning Set-Up/Ice Storm 2/5-2/8

    About to get real over in my neck of the woods real quick, .3 -.4 tenths of ice, with 35mph winds then 4-6" LES tonight. Radar lighting up just to my SW, roads going to be horrible by the time I get out of work. Did get my generator gassed up/oiled ready to go.

    Welcome to the good life, I love my generator and would not be without one ever again. Going 3 days without power during Christmas with 20 people in your house will change your mind in a hurry. I gassed mine up yesterday as I am little concerned about a .25 of ice with 40 mph winds tomorrow for my area.

    Man you guys on Eastern Lakes side are making me want to relocate, I love my area but just don't get the thumping you guys get. I have picked up about 2' this pas week though but not at those rates.

    Yea I got it as well but they later clarified more on their twitter feed the concern of not having enough supply of Nat Gas for customers.

    Consumers Energy sounds pretty serious for those with Natural Gas.
