  1. It looked like as the main tornado was occluding that a new tornado/tornadic waterspout formed. I couldn’t confirm anything due to trees blocking the ground but I thought I saw a new one form
  2. Also made multiple calls to DTX about this tornado event. First about the tornadic waterspout, then a couple about the Port Austin tornado. Knew there wouldn’t be any warnings just like last month without spotter confirmation, as the radar beams in the state once again were above the lower part of the storm.
  3. I also saw the Port Austin tornado yesterday. It was my first Michigan tornado I’ve seen in almost 4 years. Also had a large tornadic waterspout northwest of Port Austin before the storm came onshore. Environment just screamed “go here” in the Thumb to possibly see a tornado. Crossed the damage path of the EF2 from late June to see a rapidly rotating wall cloud just SE of Port Austin. A minute later the tornado developed. Pictures and video below. Will be editing pictures off my Sony a7RIV camera today.
  4. Measured 2.3” last night, with an additional 0.2” midday. Had some good quality dust and lighting at like 12-1pm yesterday. Still cranking out snow removal from the last storm so been busy. City government work is something else
  5. DTW has had 12 February’s that officially had 20” or more. 7 have been since 2008. Look to add another February to that total tomorrow evening. February has been our month as of late.
  6. I work in city government in the DPW for a good sized suburban Detroit city (Royal Oak). Had a snow emergency so was working 12 hours on/12 hours off for a couple days. Very exhausted and had no time to come on here. Got over 8” total from this storm. Earliest measurement ended up being underestimated, and lake enhanced snows also helped add to the totals. The blowing snow was super legit. While not a true blizzard, we were relatively close. Overall, this was a good storm and something needed this winter. Finally catching up on sleep after some crazy 3am start times.
  7. Pretty underwhelming here...only 4” so far in this second round on top of 1.6” this morning.
  8. Jelly of the LES. Love the intense events. Better be some pics and vids of pure rippage
  9. Will be getting that 6-9” just from tonight, if not more. That’s on top of whatever falls this morning and such. The warning is coming in a few hours.
  10. Was out doing photography all day yesterday on the Lake Michigan shore. This is locked and loaded for Detroit. Already got 1.1” as of 7am. Looks like tonight should bring an easy 6-10” at least. Very excited!
  11. About 6” or so. Felt like deep winter this morning shoveling yesterday’s fluff in the cold temps. Snow tomorrow should be pretty fluffy too, so shoveling won’t be super bad. Already at 8.8” for the month (8.3” at DTW), so if this week works out then we’re heading into a top 10 February probably
  12. Anyway..trend is undeniable here. Should be by far the biggest event of the season. Snow emergency is essentially guaranteed at this point so will be swamped at the city doing snow removal. Bring it on
  13. I got 1.8" out of this. Ready for an event that isn't 1-3.5" haha.
  14. Reeling this one way in here in Detroit. Gonna need headlines for sure haha
