Now sure how? Tons of green here?? Parking lots still have mounds though.

Winds howling at 1:10am..

Annoyingly this site doesn’t allow me to post the photos of my yard that I just took...

I’ll post them at PhillyWx if you want to see them...

My property has anywhere from very small green patches up to as much as 5” in shaded (untouched snow) areas‼️

Is the photo size too large or are you out of total storage space? I think you only get 40MB. Once you reach that you have to delete old files to free up space.

Snowpack melting took a break today w/temps only at 34F....

Thanks but says I’ve only used 3%...LOL⁉️

That's odd.

I've seen your pictures on Phillywx and you definitely have more than me. Shaded areas are nice to have...my neighbor's front lawn is mostly shaded and you can tell by the amount snow.

28F

Pretty crazy as the back yard gets a good dose of southern sun...

Picked the right house in the right location when we moved up here in late 2018...

Every other home I’ve ever owned was ALWAYS the first to melt which always pissed me off‼️

That must have sucked, lol. Probably contributed to you becoming a snowpile maker. Here, out front it's down to patches, the lower part of the back is still almost 50%, plus there's snow piles all around. A nice early March look.

I'm thinking we'll all be good through the weekend with at least some snow hanging around, especially in shaded areas. Tomorrow's the only real melt day through Sunday.

Prolly need to downsize your pics, I've had to do that to get it within that 1.95mb limit per attachment.

I post them to Facebook, save the FB photo to my phone, then delete the one on FB. Works great. Resizes then down to about 200-500 kB.

The snow lingering thing is a strange topic as I have been making observations of the snow lawns recently. Here open land no trees and good snow at all compass points, yet just 1/4 mile up the road and around the bend other houses with lots of acreage and no trees and spotty coverage with open areas of grass. It runs variable like that all over. In Allentown it looks the same way. Coopersburg appears to have the most from what I saw. 8 miles to the wsw in East Greenville last week it looked like they had half the snow I was surprised how much less.

Truth or rumor that JB thinks the second half of March into April is going to be a snow blitz :lol:

How's our March triple phaser looking? Asking for a friend.

40F with brilliant sunshine. Going for an un-Jebwalk soon.

Go read the Central PA thread. They don't think we're done yet. And some of the models agree...
