If I end up with another sleet storm like last week I'd have a snowpack til April no matter what the weather did haha.

Lol this started 40 min ago and there's already about a half inch of sleet accumulated. In the thick of the heavy precip right now. The streets/roadways that were in semi good shape have re-caved.

Still light drizzle here (between @sauss06 and @Blizzard of 93) and its freezing on everything - measured close to 0.10” on a cold surface.  I need to find or set something up for better measurement later.  Had max depth of 5” and melting down now to see liquid content which I should have done a few hours ago as the snow let up.  Current depth now that there is a layer of ice is closer to 4.5”.

I’ve basically been outside since 2pm. Everything here is ice crusted. I’m still at 28 with freezing rain.

Moderate Frz and 27 here.  Raining hard enough to see it in the street light.  Seems the sleet went a bit north of here.

 

Upper Strausburg was highest accum I saw around here so far today.  10"

It’s too warm aloft for any snow now around here - we are pretty much down to freezing rain

Man is it shiny outside. God be with those that didn’t clean their cars and have to go somewhere tomorrow morning.

My employer sent a mass text at 5:15 telling 3rd shifters to be in on time and everybody tomorrow is business as usual. #whoops

It hasn’t been heavy freezing rain at all. Small droplets....perfect for accretion

your employer is responsible if any one is in a accident since some employees feel as if they dont show up they are fired. or will be written up etc. i had a job who tried to force me to come in saying you better find a way. mind you this was in 2 feet of snow. I was like look here 1 your not my dept supervisor 2 I dont have a vehicle that can drive in snow up to my doors. 3 if i feel like im forced to come to work or ill be fired and if i get in a accident cause of it your held liable. so unless your going to pick me up in a lifted truck you better calm down. with that said id rather drive in 2 feet of snow vs ice. Mind you this post under is more about snow. but if you did drive to work and get in a accident do to no fault of your own but because road conditions were not safe. Also does any one remember when a state of emergency meant if a cop pulled you over you got a ticket if you were not essential personal.

It would be kind of fun if we all had a snowfall contest for our early March blizzard. :)
