  1. April Banter

    I hung up the spikes 9 years and never looked backed. You must love the game. @HighStakes I do love the game. Long story short after college and brief independent minor league ball I was forced to hang pitching up because of a nagging elbow problem- needed Tommy John surgery but never got it . About 2 years ago a college teammate called me to see if I would play in a wooden bat league . It had been 18 years since I picked up a baseball ( plenty of softball) though . I got my self into shape and played . Realized it was a mistake I didn't choose to come back sooner . Baseball is in my blood for sure. Hey ...we a could use another player ..interested ? That's great that you can still get out there. I do miss it but I'm in no shape to return. I'm 45 now but it sounds like were pretty close in age. I was pretty decent player. Played a year in college at Western Maryland before it was McDaniel then played softball 3-4 days a week and weekend tournaments until I was 36. Too many nagging injuries and gaining weight did me in. Just started working out again hoping to lose a few pounds.

    I just looked and the euro gives us a half inch of liquid. Gfs is about. 35. Interesting to say the least.

    It is hard to believe we broke 30. I think not only elevation but also every mile being further north helped as well. There were some good bands that set up on the northern tier that got us good but areas just a few miles south missed on somewhat.

    I used the report that is 3 mile wsw of lineboro.

    Nws spotter who lives 1 mile from my house at about the same elevation report 13.5 at 4 p.m. yesterday. We picked up at least a half inch after that until it shut off at 7:30. Then we got another inch with the band dropping down from Pennsylvania. Going with 15 for final total.

    1 new inch.
  11. March Mid/Long Range Disco 3

    The early March clipper in 2007 took a similar track with that diving down trajectory. That one started further to the north/northwest and dove right into us. Mountains didn't eat it up either because of the angle it hit us. An extremely cold night followed that one with fresh snow cover, light winds and high pressure coming down. There doesn't seem to be anything to pull this one up and hit us but who knows.

    That system targeted us a couple days ago. Then models started shifted it south as the current storm was coming into a clearer outcome. The flow behind this system and cold pressing on friday isn't allowing it to swing through our region. We could see it nudge North a bit but there probably is a limit to how much. Would love to be wrong though. I'm greedy now after today lol.

    Tom T showed the hrrr earlier this evening and it showed this final band coming through nicely. Pretty accurate on the time as well and had it lasting 1-2 hours. Picking up now. Definitely steady and adding up again. Maybe 1 more inch possible

    Just light snow but putting a fresh coating on sidewalk and driveway.
  15. March 20/21 STORM Obs/Discussion- No Banter

    Moderate to heavy snow, mostly heavy snow all day until now where it's light but still steady and piling up. Temp stuck at 28-29 all day. Easily a foot plus .
