    2/20-2/21 Obs , The Deja Vu Event

    Very fine frozen mist right now in Towamencin. I don't have any reliable measurements here, but it looks in the 2 inch range. Throwing my kids outside in every piece of brand new snow gear I bought for this Winter. 😒

    Coming down at a pretty moderate to almost heavy rate in Towamencin. Things don't take too long to get coated after being cleared. Roads are getting pretty sloppy. It's starting to get pretty.

    Winter 2018/2019 vent/meltdown thread

    I forget which year it was - but I remember another recent-ish low snow and high mud winter. I eventually took my kids sledding in the mud. Messy as all hell and I instantly regretted it, but they had fun.

    Another weather outlet that's pay-to-play for "professional" weather discussion says spring weather is coming between the 2nd to 3rd week of March and that is final. Don't argue it. I bought my kids brand new snow boots and snow suits this year, so I feel partially responsible for this dud of a winter (but also partially gleeful because I dislike snow lol).

    Lets cancel 1st half of Feb snow obs 2/10-2/12

    It is 30° and downpouring sleet here in Towamencin. I don't have a reliable way to measure what's on the ground already. It's gross out there. I'm supposed to teach dance north of here at 4. It's not turning over to rain soon enough for my liking so I need to decide soon if I cancel.

    Still dry in Towamencin. Very balmy 36°F.
  8. Coated here. 33° with just a whisper of flurries and raindrops.
  9. Moderate snow in Towamencin. Cars are coated. Starting to coat the parking lot as well.
  10. Soooooo.....stupid question....is a flash freeze a concern tomorrow evening/Monday morning once those temps drop?
  11. Hello, neighbor! I wouldn't take the chance. Stay safe!
  12. Thank you so much for the explanations along with your analysis. Much appreciated!
  13. Just drove from FNE Philly to Towamencin. Light snow in fits and spurts along the turnpike and Northeast Extension. Most action was at the Mid-County interchange with a bit of light snow. Nothing laying on my route. Here in Towamencin we have very very light snow. Actually.....it stopped just as I arrived home. Seems to be off and on.
  14. Nice bursts of flurries in Far Northeast Philly. They've been on and off for about 15 minutes now. About to head back to MontCo.
  15. Post storm Towamencin area.
