  1. Winter 2017-18 Medium/Long Range Disco

    Tuesday was winter's peak across SMI. We won't be seeing such stellar winter conditions here any time soon..
  2. February 8th-11th Overrunning Event

    Scored 3" for this wave, 11" for a 3-wave total, and 18.9" during this 8 day snowy stretch. #solid!
  3. February 8th-11th Overrunning Event

    I-80 and I-94 tug-o-war going to ensue with this one..lol
  4. Current Snow Pack and Depths

    Should be at or close to 6" when I get home this evening. This will be the 3rd time I've hit that mark. 6-7" has been the max right as the next thaw has hit. Looks like I'll finally bust thru that ceiling this weekend. I'm a deep snow pack geek, and can't wait to grab some photos..
  5. February 8th-11th Overrunning Event

    Let's just say "I like where I sit"
  6. Early February Hyperactivity

    M1.6 heading out this morn with 4 hrs more falling after that. Should have ~ 5.5" OTG in Marshall. Lowest in the middle (BC, Marshall, Albion, Jackson) with depths increasing E and W along the 94 corridor. Hopefully this weekend can even that out a bit
  7. Early February Hyperactivity

    You are 99% of the time. There was that storm in Feb '90 with the SLP over NY state, and a comma head over SEMI. Rare bird that one was..
  8. Just a DAB...for the 2nd season running no less
  9. Surprise snowstorm hits SE MI, N OH, ON

    An accurate Storm Watch would've needed a massive range to reflect reality, like "2-12 inches" lol
  10. Winter 2017-18 Medium/Long Range Disco

    No doubt the flip-flopping theme will continue. Can we stick with scene-1 "winter makes a reappearance" first please..
  11. ^^^ I'm almost always game for snow-on-snow tho, so I'll take 1-3 at a time. Maybe we get lucky and the 4-6th wave becomes more juiced like the Dec 13th storm did for some. Twice I penny, nickel, dimed my way to approx 6" depth. Be nice to raise the bar during Feb. Certainly looks likely I beat last Feb's paltry 2.9" total.
  12. January 2018 Discussion

    Looking like I'll finish with 14.5" for the month or about 30% above avg. Will be the 2nd month in a row above avg, and the 2nd Jan in a row above avg. (38.7" on the season)
  13. Surprise snowstorm hits SE MI, N OH, ON

    Yeah, there is. Warm ground due to the extended torchy days caused a lot of melting from below, but a nice 3.5" came down
  14. Winter 2017-18 Medium/Long Range Disco

    But Europe's awash with rain and snow ofc
  15. Surprise snowstorm hits SE MI, N OH, ON

    2nd rabbit pulled out of my snow hat this month! The 3-4" hit on the morning of the 12th after we looked to get whiffed was the other..living on the edge of Paradise!
  16. Surprise snowstorm hits SE MI, N OH, ON

    THIS!
  17. It's always a bad sign when mby's beating the LES King's backyard. Sad winter for many regions in many ways

  19. January 2018 Discussion

    Could be a rather snowy morning. Already a few flakes falling and a stiff NE wind.
  20. Someone posted that the NPAC at 500 mb has been very similar to last winter and I too have noticed an uncanny parallel with how the winter has played out as well. The noted exception being the reversed QBO from last winter. Despite the yawn this month just like last year I'm going to end up with a pretty good snow tally after tonight's little surprise. The cold has allowed LES near the Lakeshore which was almost non-existent last winter. But we've seen the snow pack wiped out several times as well
  21. To avoid confusion, I should have done this the first time, lol When I dropped 2011-12 it was in response to this last part of his post: "What a **** winter!"
  22. Some did have 2011-12 as an analog, which caused a major cringe every time I saw it
  23. 40th Anniversary of Blizzard of 1978

    Nice breakdown from a Chicago perspective
  24. 2017 - 2018 Winter Sports Thread

    Yep, the March 5th big Woof-woof
  25. 40th Anniversary of Blizzard of 1978

    The "Wall of White" is a phrase I remember being used in the KBUF historical write-up on the '77 bliz. The Arctic front from the Clipper-ish SLP brought 1-2 hrs of Zero vis weather to much of the S Lakes and Michindio Region even in non-LES areas. But, I've also seen eye witness reports from IN and OH mostly that a similar effect was seen as the '78 Arctic front plowed into the warm drizzly stuff. Could've been either, tho '77 happened in daylight and '78 was more an overnight deal, so that may help sort the two?
