Hybrid Clipper Event 1/27-1/29

Recommended Posts

-SN picked up again in LAF. All the melted water froze into a thin sheet of ice quickly after the frontal passage, roads are pretty bad and I almost slipped several times on the sidewalks. With the careening temperatures and the howling winds outside, it really feels like how I'd imagine the Arctic. Very harsh weather.

YYZ at 6.7". Back edge of synoptic now crossing Lake Huron. We'll make a run at 10" but probably come a bit short.

Just an incredible storm. Huge drifts out there. Snow covering the wheels of the cars. Snow up to my knees. Just wow.

 

On the downside, it took me 3 hours, 20 minutes to commute home. Scarborough RT was down, first bus I was on had its brake lines freeze, so we had to get on a new one. Then three trucks got stuck trying to climb up a hill.

Ottawa Blizzard probably frolicking like nobody's business.

Yeah. Was stuck on a bus for one hour. Took one hour to get from Scarborough Town Centre to McCowan and Steeles. Just crazy snow out there.

 

Definitely among the best storms we've had since I moved home from Ottawa in 2011. Only the February 2013 storm was better.

 

By the way, where is snowstorms? He usually got hyped about this stuff.

About 12" or so of powder today, made it up to 12F for a bit

Beautiful area there. Took my family to the Old Mission Lighthouse a few summers ago while we stayed in Traverse City

Hard to say with all the wind-blown snow, but estimating 11-12"  from system snow.  The wind is beginning to swing around to N, then NNW by 3am.   LES should come on strong then.  Living here, always nice to get the LES as an add-on bonus to the main event.

Looks like happy hour won't be on the front porch tonight...

As expected, got less here on the southern fringe. Got 3.2", but it was a pretty packed snow. Temp skyrocketted from the low teens at snows beginning to 34-35F where it stayed for 5 hours before the fall commenced. Snow depth was at 6" but has now compacted to about a heavy 5" and is freezing up. Minimal drifting. With this being the 3rd plowable snow in the last 10 days here (6.1", 3.8", 3.2") there are plenty of nice snowbanks and piles everywhere so finally has the look of deep winter. Very icy out though.

 

My 3.2" puts me at 14.3" for Jan and 20.7" on the season. At DTW the 3.9" puts them at 14.0" for Jan and 21.2" on the season.

Lol thanks. You know what's funny is when I took my trees out of the house a few weeks ago (yes I get 2 real trees) I put them by the curb along with my Garland roping. I was going to put the wreath but it was still so fresh and I thought, well that can be a good Winter wreath with the snowy pinecones, not just Christmas lol.

YYZ storm total = 12.6"

Add the 4" that fell with the Sunday clipper and this is as close to a big daddy as we're going to get. 

Wow I'm jealous.  I'm guessing even with settling you have a good 14" on the ground or so. But that is much deserved in Toronto. Totally different character of snow there than here. Due to the warming temp spike the snowpack is very heavy. It's a Winter wonderland for sure, but none of the drifting or powder look that is just to our North.

6.3" at MSN for storm total.  8.5" on the north side of the county.

Definitely on the low end of the forecast range. Had been stoked for our first double digit storm in over six years. :axe:

Well I won't begrudge you that since you missed out on a lot of the snow from the earlier storms that scraped by to the south of WI.

Yeah this past week has made up for all those earlier misses. Between last Tuesday and yesterday I probably got 17-18".

I could jackpot every storm and still be jealous of the one that I miss, just human nature for a snow weenie. So definitely jealous of toronto, Wisconsin, and cyclones snow depth lol. But I must say, I can't begrudge you guys that got slammed. Reading these threads I did not realize how many of you have not had double digit snow falls for quite a few years. Weve had 5 double digits snowstorms since 2014, so I can't complain that my big one this year has been just 6.1".

I'd say 20% or so of the houses in my neighborhood still turn on their "Christmas" lights at night, and it's the end of January.  So, you're not alone with re-purposing decorations.
