I know most people here really enjoy the heavy rates and high totals but the nature of the prolonged events with on off snow and varying intensities really sets a great laid-back ambiance. 

Agreed, this is infinitely better than the sun popping right out and everything starting to melt

This has been a great event but my favorite was the one we had Superbowl Sunday where it snowed all day and ended just in time for an amazing sunset.  I like the snow to end just before sunset and then have a spectacular sunset to take pictures of the snow in.

About 1/4” new in the last hour with steady light snow.  Just took a walk around the neighborhood to soak in the deep winter scenery.  Not a spot of exposed pavement around. Never know if this is it until next year.  

I’d be content if this was it until next year. Hopefully the “dry spell” is over though and next winter delivers

 

maybe we’ll get a March surprise.

What an absolutely sublime evening out there. Just did a walk in Central Park to look for the Snowy Owl as dusk set in. He didn't show (yet) but we were treated with magical snow globe snow that kept picking up in intensity. I had my big camera and got a few shots, but here are some from the phone.

Snow is essentially over for now and "only" got 1.0" (thought I might get more), which brings us to 5" for the "event" (I think yesterday and today are being counted together).  I wonder if the midday almost-late-Feb indirect sun is doing a bit of work on the falling snow, even at 30F.  I would expect this 1" to be gone by the end of the afternoon if we get no more snow.  

Well we had 1/4" about2 hours ago and then one last band just now.  Holy crap, I stayed outside for almost all of this last band, as it was just stunningly gorgeous - not to get maudlin about it, but at my age you never know when it'll be your last storm, lol.  Not the heaviest snow I've ever seen, visibility/intensity-wise, but some of the most beautiful, feathery, cotton-candiest dendrites I've ever seen, with most 1/2-3/4" across and some even up to 1" across and they nestled so pefectly together on top of the snow and whitened up every surface including all the trees (and paved surfaces, so be careful, although it only took 5 minutes to broom it away).  

We got another 1/2" over about 30 minutes, bringing my total today to 1.75" and my storm total to 5.75".  A perfect ending to a great storm - and yes, this is the last of it for CNJ and should be over down the shore in the next 30-45 minutes and it might be even more snow down there, i.e., I could see some picking up 3/4" from this band.  Seasonal total now up to 41.75".
