Yeah you had 15-16” I think and much was paste. We never had any paste all Feb . All of it was powder even with 12” in that big storm . The first water into it was that zr that turned to rain prior to the 3 day snowstorm 

Yep. I prob had over 1.5” of qpf in that storm. 

Too bad it doesn’t really matter at this point. It will melt out soon with no other snow threats imminent. I was hoping we’d start March on a solid note to add to the pack and seasonal totals but doesn’t look good now. 

At this point I’m just hoping for some stat-padders mid-month and beyond since it’s prob not going to be nice. The alternative is usually garbage.

If you think about it.. the fact that we went from I think Jan 26 until today with wire to wire snowpack with 100% powder, almost no rain other than one storm and no sleet and a little zr is pretty amazing. No cutters, no torches.. It takes a pretty unique setup to have that. Plus we had pack from Dec 6th until Xmas Eve. Pack wise it was pretty good. January just didn’t snow or do anything

There was discussion about driveways.  This is what happens when you don't have asphalt /concrete this time of year. Mitch posted this. I was very happy when I went to asphalt. Too many days like this.

That’s what our parking lot and road looks like.  Just packed ice.  It’s slickest when you get a little rainwater on top of that.  Almost impossible to walk on... gotta hold onto your car while you slide around to the door lol.

Yep.  Luckily the snow that we just got fell before it froze too hard so it looks like it bonded pretty well.

It was very odd to go so long without cutters or torches.

Or bitter cold. I just wish we could do that from after Thanksgiving until April 1.

Just the worst one we’ve ever had timed perfectly to ruin Xmas . 

07 sucked too, 18 inch pack on Christmas Eve down to bare ground Christmas day. I remember going to my BIL's on Christmas eve in the pouring rain carrying gifts.

A couple slight breezy moments while i was out for a walk

The first pulse was 45-50mph which was 4-6:00. Models have the main pulse 10:00pm -4:00 AM. That’s when most of the damage and outages will come from with 50-60mph. A lot of people waking up overnight with posts about limbs on roofs etc. And one final pulse 50-55mph once the sun comes up tomorrow

Wow I still had like 6-8” glacier that year. There was a little bit of CAD on the front side of that cutter...you must have warm sectored a lot earlier.

Quite the squall that just went through, instantly covered everything. It started out as some of the biggest graupel pellets ever...

Lol yeah paved vs not paved aren't the only factors. 

Sounds like everyone on the forum needs some rock salt. Most local DPWs put out a pile of salt or sand for residents. 

My driveway is a thousand feet long reclaimed asphalt....I don't get many issues but I'm on a South facing hill so that helps big time.

When are these 40-60mph gusts supposed to materialize?  Been run of the mill 20-30mph gusts here.
