A spotter in N Fitchburg who I know was at 24.8.  He is meticulous 

that's right around our totals. Seems fair. I'm downtown, looks are deceiving, driving in looked like some decent totals in W Burg.

No way I would give up on a dynamic system like this tracking south of me. Boston often finds ways to cash in on those. The short range models were complete garbage. There were models giving my area over 10” and others practically none. The radar and common sense were much more useful. 

Yeah, leaned too much on the short range models and trends. Normally when they start showing an East trend less than 12 hours out, you can take it to the bank.  Kudos to BOX for sticking with their guns for most of it.

Last moderate burst coming through Boston? Big fluff balls. Should put me over 6in for round 2 and about 7.5” total for the storm. 

Pretty damn good for the first few days of December in the coastal plain. 

Congrats to everyone in the Worcester Hills on West especially the Pioneer Valley! An all-timer there. In my 4 years in Amherst the most I ever saw in one storm was 15”. That place is usually a sucker hole. Not this time. 

Congrats everyone!!!!

See, you did alright after all.  Not too bad.
 

 This storm seemed to redeem itself in the end for those of us outside the massive amounts..that way we all feel like we were part of the fun.

Looks to be winding down on the cape...I don’t think Jimmy is gonna get his “snow til sunset” idea to work out.  But at least he’s seeing accumulating snow this early out there.  That’s a win.

It was clear 5 days ago that the storm would evolve in a way that would slam most of SNE (snow holes here and there). Closed off lows like this don’t roll underneath without much of SNE getting buried-this was a classic setup.  Boston/coastal MA took its share today as the storm’s leaving and would’ve had 6” more if it was a few degrees colder. The short term models keeping all that offshore this morning were garbage.

There must be a lesson to learn here on when and how to read models. Medium Range vs. Short Range and when to use which one for the best analysis.

Was North of Holyoke, MA last night driving back to coastal Fairfield County, CT and WOW, What a sharp gradient N to S in CT!  1-2 feet north of Hartford. Few inches south of city and about a coating to an inch on coast! Fairfield county has been absolutely ripped off last few years. Almost like becoming the new norm. It’s sad..
 

Congrats to our neighbors to the North! Enjoy it. Snow breeds snow, and it’s early!

Is it atmosphereic pattern dependent when it comes to which ones work best? 

Short ranges are usually money. Not this time
