    That struck on this side of the state this week. Hey folks! I haven't been in this forum in way too long but now, again, I need some feet on the ground info. We picked up those Indy Passes and we get 2 days each at Greek, Swain, Snow Ridge and Titus. We'll do an overnight but can't get that far out until Wed-Fri next week so where am I most likely to find (what's left of) the good midwinter snow I'm jonesin' for? 

    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.

    Good to know, but still if you measure right after snow falls that still is fluffed up compared to 6hrs layer going to be different numbers I guess point of my post was 

    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.

    Looking back at last years photos to judge snowbank size haha. Last year mid February was packed with snow and created massive snowbanks. The thaw started almost immediately though and by end of February my piles were diminishing fast. March 13th I took the last photo of a tiny remnant baking in the sun haha. By March 20th Toronto had 7 days in a row around 55-65F with a severe thunderstorm warning

    I know everyone wants winter to win out but now we're getting to the point in the calendar where changes will start pretty fast. 

    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.

    Yup, esp with lake effect, sublimation occurs all the time. I have a camera on my snow board so if I’m not there to clear I can see max depth. Yes you can bun me. 

    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.

  5. 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.

    What happened to our colder weather for after this storm? Looks like mid to upper 30s all of a sudden much of next week. What has happened to the days of yore with highs in the 20s and replenishing snow showers?

    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.
