Thanks! :D

I tried to superimpose the observations onto the map, but it caused too much clutter. It was impossible to view numeric observations clearly. That's why I chose to use a color scale for the symbology instead. I can add the text, but I'd have to focus on smaller territories as you mention.

Is there a place I can store these plots somewhere in the forum (maybe a new thread)? I have 208 other plots I'd like to upload once the script finishes.

Yeah feel free to start a new thread for it. Prob the easiest way. 

Maybe @dendrite can chime in.

A new thread with maps like that of 200 past snowstorms?!  Sounds awesome.  A one-stop shop for history.

Good to hear!

I ran the interpolation for all events listed here < https://www.ncdc.noaa.gov/snow-and-ice/rsi/societal-impacts > for the NE US. So there are 211 in total. I'm iterating from highest to smallest RSI (the sum of area/population impacted by climatological snowfall thresholds). At the moment, I have 19930312_19930315, 19960106_19960109, 19780204_19780208, and 19690222_19690228. I'm hoping I'll get some feedback for the interpolations (such as additional observations or ideas... The 4 Seasons!!!). I fully expect to redo some of these images to make them more accurate for my ultimate analysis. I'm surprised how detailed the GHCND archive is though. There's plenty of observations since 1900 for our area. Northwest Maine was the only exception so I had to be creative for that region. 

I could look at other historical events too. I just need the start and end dates (even dating back to 1900).

Here are the final images I'll post until the other images process and I decide where to put them.

Sounds pretty sweet. I doubt anyone will hassle you there. It's not like you are going to VT after all. LOL

I'm not worried about that.... It's my work that makes me tell them where I'm going any time I take time off or go anywhere out of state

It’s funny because in that area you would be less likely to get the ‘vid than in the dirty ‘burg

I am really hoping for a monster bombing storm blowing up in the Gulf of Maine while my temps are in the low 20s. Is that so much to ask for? Enough of this weak-ass sheared crap we keep getting

You'll get your fair share of those, along with a shiteton of upslope goodies. And I will live vicariously through you as the daffodils come up in early January lol

Yeah it must be the Darling named GMO trees then. I think they only had to change a few genes out of the 40k in the genome. The added gene produces oxalate oxidase (OxO) which neutralizes the oxalic acid that is produced by the blight fungus. So the fungus can actually exist on the trees without the acid being formed to kill it. And the gene is found naturally in wheat and bananas and other plants already. I think there's another marker gene in there for identifying which seeds actually have the resistant gene. So really it's like 99.999% or better.

Here's my seeds that came in. They are way smaller than the Chinese ones you can find in grocery stores right now.

Nice!  In our experience, deer love to browse chestnut so we put wire cages around the ones we planted.

Curious about one of the sites in Maine that had 48-60 in Feb 1969- the point at the SW end of that color is Long Falls Dam (which sadly went off line in 2011 - at least I can no longer find its data.)  Is the one to the NE Harris Dam?   Farmington co-op's 43" is their biggest dump on record and their pack was 84" at the end - was Maine's deepest until Chimney Pond in Baxter Park reported 94" in 2017.
Some trivia - Gardiner, Maine co-op reported 12.0" but 3 miles south at our place we had 10.3" from 1.70" LE from often rimed flakes.

Anyone else realize there are no acorns to speak of this fall?

polar opposite here. I filled a 17 cf cart with acorns a month ago. That was from 1 tree. :axe:

I have to protect them from the voles and chippies too. I found that out the hard way the first time I tried it. I may try some of those 4-5ft tree tubes to train them going upward because my other chestnut trees are growing as much outward as upward since they have a wide open field. I'm afraid to prune them and introduce wounds.

I’ve never seen this many acorns in 16yrs that I’ve lived here.

For anyone in medicine. I was talking to my brother in laws fiancé, who’s a nurse today. She said people definitely aren’t getting as sick this go around, at least from what she can see. She also said her friend, you is a doctor in NYC believes the virus may have mutated to a less potent strain?

Im not claiming any of this stuff as true or fact, but it’s interesting to here those takes from people in the medical field. I’d also leave open for the fact that treatment and handling of hospitalized cases is probably better now, which may be playing a role in that opinion.

Los Angeles shuts down outside dining for next 3 wks. I'm sorry, but are they following any science?

They are also culling the homeless due to high rates of spread amongst them. Newsom  said it’s a horrible but necessary decision.
