Your positivity is appreciated but misplaced. No hope here, move along now

 Currently at Officially 20" here near Jonesville, Va in Lee County. We've had the most snow this year than we've had since 2015.

Sure glad I just installed a new generator.

Congratulations.  They’re great to have.  I’ve had my 22kw generator for a year now and not a single significant storm-related outage to show for it.  Not even a tropical system.  I’ve jinxed us.  :lol:

I am excited, everything in this county is above ground. We lose power when the deer fart and I have some elders with me. Hopefully I didn't make the snow fairy's mad lol.

Sux about Petr, but Optimus is stepping up.  Hopefully Jacob has shaken the cobwebs out. 8pm tonight giterdone!

Petr is like an orange barrel out there.  Everyone insists on sliding into him lately.  Bad luck.  I hope they can continue this momentum they have.  With the abbreviated season, getting off to a good start is important because a slump later is always possible.  Banking some points now eases the pressure later.

I love when people use words like pummeled and plastered... when in reality it’s light/moderate precipitation. 

I guess it’s all relative.  Our context is different compared to, say, Buffalo.  :D  To snow-starved Southrons, moderate snow does indeed feel like a pummeling.

Reminds me of fishing stories I've heard.

That map is 20-25" too low for my area (Wolf Laurel). I wonder how they come up with these totals. I'm guessing radar data is part of it, which would explain why it's off by so much.

I think it is from snowfall reports sent into tjhe local NWS office.  Plus the mountains you wont get exactly spot on as there are so many different variants that can cause snowfall to be different from mile to mile

Folks, occurred to me a few days ago while buying vintage lamps that if I can buy a vintage lamp, I can probably spend some money on a pay site- is wxbell still the leader here?

I think so. I like the extracted data from F5 but it seems spurious at times. I dont like the interface at weathermodels.com at all. Pivotal isnt awful but lacks the extracted stuff that I really like but does have arguably the best UKMET data.

Awwww, man!  Don't get me started on those trite and exaggerated colloquialisms used for snowing rates, lol.  A couple more that's used regularly are "puking" and "ripping."  I don't care if it's actually snowing heavily or lightly, those sayings are rather annoying.  

I just noticed Panther Justin basically stated verbatim, lol.

Map is too low for NE NC. I was there 2 days after the storm and there was still more than 4 inches easy in the shade after 2 days of melting and compacting
