    Hey, all. My wife and I will be heading out to Redfield for a final interview this Friday, and staying until Monday. I can't wait to check it out! Several inches of sleet/snow mix here in West Michigan since very early this morning.

    Hi, all! I was avoiding this forum the past week as I didn't want to get myself all worked up. Lol.... Well, 2 inches of sleet/snow mix here in West Michigan, with the mixture of sleet and snow continuing. GRR NWS has been insisting since last night that it would be mostly freezing rain, but I have yet to see much of it...THANKFUL for that, as we have had wind gusts to 50 mph this weekend. I had been telling my friends that this was looking like more of a sleet situation. Latest NAM runs are looking good for several inches of snow on the backside here as well. Hoping it happens! What a crazy week...On Thursday, temps across West Michigan ranged from 30 in Cadillac to 70 in Kalamazoo. Yesterday, it was 50 DEGREES colder here than in my hometown of Lancaster, PA, where it hit 85 yesterday. What a month this has been!

    I am surprised that we have not lost much snow at all today considering it is April. As long as it continues to stay overcast with snow showers, I think we'll be able to make it through the whole day with several inches of snow on the ground. Looks like December!

    Got about 4 inches of snow with last night's defo. band and lake effect snow this morning. Snow showers ongoing. Reading endless posts of friends complaining about "winter" today on Facebook amuses me...
  7. Geesh...I'm even literally "right on the line" for getting hit by space station fragments too...just can't win....

    Actually have had bursts of wet snow mixing in with rain showers here in West Michigan. For sure waaaay too mild for anything to lay. Sure would like to see a few snowstorms this upcoming week before Spring sets in.

    Looking at models...snow south...snow north...snow south...boredom in between...bloody repeat again and again...

    Ha! I JUST watched this video yesterday! You can bet on seeing some videos of me doing this...a bit more gracefully than this fellow.

    Haha! Yeah, I was referring to Bo. It doesn't get enough snow, and isn't rural enough for him. He seems like a great guy though...he is a young guy with both parents passing away way too young...so he has the freedom to go wherever pretty easily. Fall is actually my favorite season...by far...but snow is my favorite type of weather. The town itself is a bit lower in elevation than much of the rest of "Redfield." From checking out maps, it looks like some years the town and south do better...while other years north does better. Probably depends on predominant wind directions. If there is any type of SW direction in the flow, north does better...and can dump because of fetch and topography.

    Definitely! I have already been thinking about it, and planning. She is located in North Redfield, where I will most likely be located between Redfield and North Osceola. Many of their snowfall maps are based off of the very few spotters they have, so it would be awesome to be a part of specifying micro-climates in the Tug region.
  14. Upstate/Eastern New York

    Oh, yes. I have looked at those maps over and over and over again...drooling....lol. Orwell to Altmar to Williamstown to Camden look like the outer edge/start of the best snows with it only increasing north and east of that line until the other side of the Tug. If I can end up there...hopefully it will appease my snow fix. There is a dude on our Great Lakes sub-forum who lives up in the snow belt in the UP of Michigan...gets a couple hundred inches of snow a winter with consistent snow depth of 3 to 5 feet...and it still isn't enough for him. Considering I would be doing LOTS of snow cleanup, I think it will be plenty for me.
  15. Upstate/Eastern New York

    I'll probably be at about 1100 to 1200 feet.
