That’s what we call man snow. Loaded with moisture harder to melt 

Just took a measurement. Caveat, not quite my official spot so it could be a touch low but not by a lot. Maybe have to breakout the slanted RGEM  ruler b4 thIs is done. ;)

With this going all night you should do 8” or so

I did a major tuneup on our generator last month.

I really don't want to be using it tonight.

I stocked up on 30 gallons of non-eth last month and added some stabilizer to it for extra shelf life. Ran the generator for few mins couple weekends ago. Locked and loaded for an outage. Next few nights might get below 0 too could spell disaster for alot of ppl that don't have backup power or wood heat available.

Boo. I hate that you're left out of the snowfall. How much of your snowpack is left?

Bout 5 inches. Hope we at least flip to a bunch of sleet to glacierize what's left of our snowpack and also so I can plow it in the morning.

I’ve never been so happy to hear sleet raking across our window screens.

Temp down to 30/29 and that did the trick.

Looks like pure sleet with some mangled icy flakes mixed in now.

Good luck to you guys south of me.

We def have a few pingers mixed in but still looks like mostly zr here.

Just got back from a walk. Snowing steadily, but flake size is small. I'm at the border between Toronto and Markham.  Glad we are at least getting something out of this second wave. Congrats to the western and central New York posters!

Just wondering how much you got and how much you guys have on the ground now?

Flake size should improve for all areas (that are snowing).

I just checked some soundings going forward from the NAM and it looks like the DGZ grows a bit thickness wise and Omega increases within.  5.5" in Caz with moderate SN.

Thanks. I have burned out looking at models, soundings, Kuchies, etc.  I was a bit optimistic last night looking at some soundings...hopefully they end up right.

We're nearly all sleet here now too thankfully.

Looked like rain drops under the streetlight and couldn't hear the pinging over the TV and fire insert. But stepped outside and it's music to my ears.

You guys inspired me to go outside and listen to….the sound of rain drops and water running down the gutters.  Also noticed a huge puddle on our main front sidewalk, because it is dammed up by snow/ice banks and frost heaved soil on the sides, that will probably turn into a 1” thick sheet of glare ice by morning, so I’ve got that going for me….

 Yeah, I think we have about a 4 to 6 hour period of better dendrites starting about 10 or 11pm.  Fingers crossed!

Let's goooo!

It's already improved here in Oswego too. Still fine flakes, but they don't look like frozen drizzle anymore. The snowpack is very pretty already.
