Just below 6 inches total for today, but enough to break a record.

Holy Smokes!!! Picture just kept getting better.

Hooiser wakes up to pound town - sounds like the kind of thing that you wonder, "how long has this been going on".

 

I feel sorry for the local mets down here --- Twitter is rumbling with complaints..."big miss", "Can't you wait until the day before to spout totals, the grocery was chaotic"

 

Two things come to mind:

1) these same fools (if they followed the models/other data) would be spouting the loudest clown map available --- the CONSESUS depiction "Never" waivered here in Cincy-- for like 5-6 days. So anyway.....the Mets are being unfairly judged IMO

2) The exception being the NAM  !!????? It was the outlier, has been totally off recently, and looked like it was "on crack".... is this the "Blind Squirrel" thing or do you put more money on it this next wave?

Haven't had a storm this drifty in awhile. Interesting that some of the windiest observations came right here in Southeast Michigan, seems odd so far from the low track. Some sweet drifts out there but makes it hard to measure. Going with 8.3" for the main wave and then when you add the 2" from yesterday morning it would be 10.3" over the past 30 hours. Avg snow depth 14".  I would say the models did well with the storm here but as always we saw the cold temperatures and assumed higher ratios than it would be.  This event was pure powder, some of the drifts are even packed, until the very end when we are adding a little fluff on top. Can't wait to go out and play.

No personal measurement but have a report of 10.5” from a nearby ham radio spotter reporting his total. Seems about right. The heaviest band slide just east of Kokomo for the first couple of hours. When board reports of “ripping snow” came from Indy, it was just moderate here.

Drifts reported of 3-4 feet in the county. It will be a long day digging out.

Bust. Calling it about 5" but with the drifting it's impossible to tell.  Snow shut off around 4am so we had no chance at anything significant with only 7 hours of accumulations.  Definitely a 15:1+ ratio snow though, very airy.  

Very disappointing tbh. Couldn’t even the crack the 6” mark with the main system plus the first wave was a bust. Oh well.

Hey, nice to meet you. :)

Yeah, well, that's how we roll here in the Six. 

Over 100cm/40" for the season officially though.  4th straight year.  Haven't done that since the 70s if you're looking for a bit of a silver lining.

Definitely doesn’t seem like we’ve had that much the last few years probably because it’s been so mild we haven’t been able to sustain a snowpack. Thought for sure we’d be a lock for 6-8” based on what I was hearing upstream from the Midwest posters. Damn flake size lol.
