Congrats to everyone in the interior who did really well with this one. I'd be really excited. Some people who were due got what they were looking for which is great news. 

It was a fun event to track, although if I ever hear it's an analog for a future storm I'll give myself a rusty coat hanger.

2-3" was the total here. 

It really ended up being nothing more than a miserable day at work, sadly. And it's gonna be a mess out there today again too. Ugh. 

Regression depression. I'm ready for a coastal special.

14"!

I can't believe that place. I don't know if many on the board have driven through there. It's legit a random state park in the middle of urban metro Boston. On a clear day it looks like a small little hill. You'd never guess there would be such a difference. When Dedham had an inch or two last night, the base of MQE less than a mile or two away had 7" approximately. It's just an all around wild location.

We had a PIREP report last night over HYA that remarked snow at 700'! That is amazing. So we had steep low level lapse rates.

5.3" when i measured this morning, Maybe we tack on another 2-4" today.

0.2" less than here.  Only teeny-tiny flakes and when I was out clearing the board at 7 they rattled off my coat like they'd partially melted then refroze on the way down.  Ratio was exactly 10:1 but I think it's lower for the 1/2" or so that's fallen since.  Wind is taking the snow sideways but not moving the stuff on the ground much, only what's on the vehicles show "drifting".

Its sand right now here, But think that changes here shortly as the radar fills, Looks like some high 20dbz rates in that too.

In for a break from snow blowing id say in my area of Wilmington if it wasn’t 20” it’s pretty close. It is very wet heavy stuff.

Weird, very light here. I just reached my storm high temp of 29.5F. Most of it fell between 28-29F. Yeah, 20" might be a little high. At least 18" but agree, 20" for here is prolly a good rounded estimate.
