    February 12th-14 Redeveloper Nowcast/Obs

    Here's me getting it hooked up in the fall. Runs off the PTO of my little Kubota...its first year in service after fighting a 275# monster walk-behind for the last decade. :

    Wow this morning woke up to about 5" of translucent slop to clean up. Awesome! I cranked the tractor RPM to 3750 and turned the 50" snowblower into a 23hp firehose of slush. Fun, but not what I wanted to be doing at 5am. I'd prefer the 60' plumes of powder...maybe next time. At least this crap isnt going to freeze solid, right? RIGHT?

    You clear before the ball bearings? I find its easier to clear with them on top of the snow.....

    Some pinging on the windows now. Think I'm going to clear out in the morning vs tonight to avoid having 1-2" of sleet to clear by itself.

    Still snowing pretty nice here in Plaistow. Maybe 3-4" so far. Light fluffy stuff. Took my 2 year old out to walk around. Snow up to his tiny boots seemed deep to him. Win.

    Winter Re-Awakening - February 12-14th Redeveloper

    As typical, I'm on the line here just north of 495 at the NH border north of Haverhill. HRRR has me sitting pretty and excited in the 6-8" range. NAM shows dismal 3-4"....per every storm this year. I would be ecstatic with 6"....any less and I just hope its enough and solid enough to effectively snowblow and not just a ridiculous ugly mess. Hopping on the roads to head home from the Peabody area around 2pm to beat the snow onset/traffic.

    Winter Re-Awakening - February 12-14th Redeveloper

    Some doom and gloom feelings still but I'm liking my spot just over the NH border in the NE. I will be ecstatic with anything near 6"....hedging my expectations more towards 4" of mixed sleet and crap. My main desire if there's sleet/slush is that there's at least enough to throw with the blower effectively.

    Agreed. I basically consider us in northern MA. I'm technically "south" of some parts of MA in Plaistow, NH.

    It has become clear how this winter will go for me. From Dec through mid March we'll get no huge storms...clearly caused by my acquiring a Kubota with front snowblower and thus preventing all major events requiring such a machine from occurring. I've chalked this up to my wife working with nature to say "see you didnt need that tractor anyways!" On or around March 15th everything will change because my wife has a scheduled C-section planned for the 20th. As my winter lust for snow is replaced by paranoia about roads and conditions whenever we have to get to the hospital, I KNOW the biggest hum-dinger of a storm will come barreling our way and I wont have the time or mental power to track or enjoy it. Thats how it works.

    Yes curious about threat of major squalls near the MA/NH border...Haverhill area. I'll be commuting home with my baby in the back seat and want to avoid any serious dangerous roads. What time might these set in so I can get home in front and avoid them?

    Couple inches of tiny glass beads on top of dense sand-like snow. Frigid cold. Keeps coming...how many more hours of this stuff? Tuck right onto my head from pics above... First use of the PTO-driven snowblower. Beastly!

    I have a 50" snowblower on a tractor so I almost have the opposite problem. Moving 2" of slush off 400' of driveway is my nightmare.

    Steady weird waterfall-like stream of perfectly round frozen rainballs coming off the roof now...
