  1. .75” of rain so far in my backyard and it’s hammering right now. Temp is 34.5, changeover will still be many hours away. Awful just awful
  2. Agree. Just finished my annual three day trip at whiteface and conditions were pretty good but hanging on by a thread. Hard to really recover from numerous rain events over the next couple weeks. I got my fill. Im out. Haha.
  3. Yikes, that's some tough timing. Wednesday looks like the only day you can salvage a decent full day and maybe the first half of Thursday. If I had to go to one of those 4 places and conditions were equal at all of them I would pick Greek Peak hands down.
  4. Well obviously! I’m just trying to find a silver lining when we get 5 cutters over the next month.
  5. They didn’t even mention the best part.. high winds! I’m shifting into wind mode early this year.
  6. Gfs has next weeks storm as a major wind event as of the last few runs. If it’s going to cut it might as deliver some big winds too!
  7. I don't think I've ever seen an April in my whole life where we didnt get at least a trace of snow. It's way more the norm than the exception for Upstate.
  8. Oh absolutely. If the intervals are set ahead of time, and not set when the snow starts, you can definitely skew numbers in the way you mention. It's the reason all the airports will always have much higher numbers on the season than the general public, 6 hour intervals are very short compared to people waiting 24 or more hours to take a measurement where the first few inches that fell have been squashed down to nothing.
  9. Last February saved the winter for me. We had 4 inches or more on the ground for the entire month peaking at 18 inches during mid month. Was a hell of a 6 week run that ended just as quickly as it started.
  10. It's not sublimation changing numbers during the course of 12 hours or so, its compaction. Snow basically never stops falling....its always compacting together more efficiently, that's why glaciers form. Snow will continually settle until its a solid block of ice.
  11. They only verified for less than 10 percent of our area. There are better maps to use. I ended up with 12”, basically spot on the 10:1 forecast. If I went by a kuchera map, then my forecast busted by nearly 50 percent in my backyard.
  12. I should be right around 12-13”. I’ll update when I get home.
  13. We must have added 2-3 inches today. Definitely a solid finish to this one.
  14. Right around 10-11 inches total right now but my snowboard location was particularly vulnerable to drifting with this wind so I had to measure a few other less reliable places. Still pretty good consensus around the yard.
  15. Well we’ve got something to track! At least for the next 6 hours haha. I’ll be in placid that weekend, what I wouldn’t give…
  16. Cleared the board again a couple minutes ago…2.5” of absolute dust, probably 8:1. That brings the daily total to just about 7 inches and I’d take that ~7” of this quality snow over 15 inches of 20:1 any day of the week. Plus it’s now been snowing for 24 hours straight which I really enjoy. Seems like we could get another 2-5 so perhaps a total of 9-12 at this point. Total on the ground right now is 14” so we start adding days to that interesting daily snow on the ground statistics (12”) that is notoriously hard to tack on any days.
  17. I’m out driving around as per usual. Went bowling and dropped friends off downtown. It’s certainly bad but nothing too crazy. Roads aren’t anywhere as bad as that last synoptic system but still fun. Anytime I’m in 4x4 I’m a happy guy. Looks like 6-8 for the most part. Definitely could make a run at 12 if the radar holds.
  18. It’s because last night I mentioned how the extended looked great and we were going to hold this snowpack for a couple weeks. Damnit all.
  19. 4 inches on the button but high density stuff. Board was cleared at 6pm. We’ll see what we can tack on from now till later tonight.
  20. Well wouldnt that be a fun plot twist! Don't tell them I spend all day on here during storms! I'm trying to think of another weather nerd at this place??
