  1. Nothing here in east Allentown since about 11:30am when we had a short period of light snow . Temp on the outside gauge is 34 degrees.
  2. For ABE: The Thursday night/Friday morning storm snowfall total was 0.8” The Friday night/Saturday storm snowfall total was 4.1” The Sunday night/Monday morning storm snowfall total (as of 1am Monday morning) was 6.6”. So, the snowfall total for March so far (as of March 4th at 1am) is 11.5”. So March by far has been our snowiest month of the winter and it bring our total winter snowfall very close to average, believe it or not.

  7. This is terrible news. My condolences and prayers go out to Jim's family and his extended family at Mt. Holly. I have been performing the duties of snow measuring for ABE for the past decade and Jim took such an active part in improving the program. He ALWAYS was there to answer any questions and any emails I sent him. In fact, he usually took the time to call me instead of replying on email. That personal touch will be lost. He seems so excited in the advances in the program and truly seemed to be a caring person. On a couple of occasions, when I posted something on facebook about health concerns about my daughter, he CALLED me just to see how she was doing. Although I only met Jim a few times at the office and for a site visit here in Allentown, I feel I knew him better than I should have. And that was because of Jim's caring and warm personality. You will be missed Jim!
  8. Yes, someone else in another post pointed thst out I think....
  9. Kind of ironic that 2015 Christmas Eve high temperature were almost identical to 2015 July 4th high temperature and then we have our snowiest day on record in Allentown just over three weeks later. No wonder this is a great hobby....
  10. Yes, the death band that set up in the early afternoon was very impressive. It was tough to measure with the wind and drifting but the snow depth thankfully was consistent with the averages which were received from the snowfall measurements on the board. Been living here in the Valley since 1962 and never have seen anything like what I witnessed today. I truly believe it will take multiple days to fully dig out. Oh, and light snow continues.....
