Well folks - going by these 2 posts, it's pretty clear who posts positively and who posts negatively. :)

lol I’m just talking about up here wise, there may be more to come elsewhere. I can’t be negative about anything this winter, I could not see another flake rest of the year and it’d be the best I ever remembered.

I was having fun. You've done well and it's been LONG overdue up your way.

True that. And that PHL post of mine was WAY off - 2 hours ago the airport was at 0.6" :rolleyes:

was the conshohocken 14" verified?

Thats a small distance for such a HUGE qpf disparity.  

Looking at 511 cams, I think I answered my own question.  They've got snow, but I Dont see 14" in those cams....but if you add any 3 together then ok...maybe I'll bite.

I know some folks to the far NW are disappointed, but this was a fun storm.  One of the biggest factors for me with storm enjoyment is start time--nothing better than getting up at 5 AM and brewing some coffee just as the sidewalks are dusting up, and knowing you have nowhere to be.  

We ended up with about 5.3" here before the sleet took over, and it's coming down hard.

I have only seen reports of snow approaching 9”. I have not seen any official 14” reports from that area.


.

Highest officially reported amount to Mt. Holly that I just checked was a 9.5". Some serious weenie reporting going on in the Philly thread, or a VERY localized dump in that area. I should have known better than to post weenie info - I take people for face value and assume they're reporting factual totals. My apologies.

No biggie at all.  Just wondered if it was legit because nothing else close has been reported.  It's still a respectable number at 9.5".

Left for work at the store in Carlisle and made it to the exit before mine and met this blocking most of the north bound lane (there was another two tractor trailers behind them off on either side) and then got the call that the store was closing and to head home. Of course :p This was around 11:00am

I am still holding out hope that Part 2 overperforms. A nice little lull for 6 hours or so LOL. Dang 12K NAM don't let me down. 

If you don't start to see radar backfilling by 18z time, I've got some crow marinating. 

Just waiting to see if I have to eat the crow, or drink the marinade, and throw the crow in the garbage....:lol:

I'll be over. I guess onto the next one. Nice snow morning but I'm not satisfied. Too quick, Too Progressive and to think there are how many low's down in the GOM. I guess blame it on NINA.

-NAO check, +PNA check, NS/SS Phase uncheck. I like we finally had a SS primary steamer and what seemed like a Miller A BUT we cannot win. I am ready for a Clipper we haven't had one in 2 years now. 

Oh no...I hate clippers. So many ways to fail with those. We've had some notable exceptions for sure, but I never count on much of anything from them. They really should be renamed "Mountain Shredders". 

One positive is they are high ratio events. You can score 3-4" of fluff from like .10" of QPF. So there's that.

A review of the latest HRRR (16Z) says that approximately 2" more is yet to come for all of us.  However, it doesn't restart until about 6:00pm this evening and it's over with around 2:00am tomorrow.  If I can double my storm total from thus far, it'll be a minor victory.  Currently the temperature isn't going anywhere even though the skies did brighten considerably for a time 30 minutes ago.  They've darkened back up again now.  Temp is 25.2 degrees.

Here in Carlisle at 11:00am the snow has ended.  Looks like there's going to be a LONG lull.  2.1" storm total.  Temp back up to 24.4 degrees.  I had the heaviest rates of the storm about 20 minutes ago right before some sleet began to mix in.  I'm not giving up totally but I think the HRRR is going to be right.  (Sorry for sounding so down!  Not usually like this but all 3 big storms this winter I underperformed by a good margin.)  I know it will snow again, maybe this Monday?

Commenting on the season as whole I feel the same.   Never got into a death band, all storms were lower end of guidance, and never jackpotted.   The beat continues today

They canceled it everywhere except for a couple NE counties.  Hoisted a new WWA for the stuff coming tonight.

CTP going for 1-3" additional snowfall tonight through mid morning tomorrow.

HRRR is coming around to the NAM 12K :lol: Let's hope I can reach 6". And so I don't have to eat crow with Nut.
