  1. I was at the Berks County GOTR 5k which was at PSU Berks. The Lancaster GOTR also had their 5k today and that was at Franklin & Marshall, so I’m sure they were at that one. Tough day for a run but everyone had a good time, knew they were gonna get wet and embraced it!
  2. I lost count of the running total but 1.05” since midnight in Sinking Spring, Berks. My daughter’s Girls on the Run 5k is today...getting a bit wet.
  3. Had some strong winds in Sinking Spring - about a mile away near the local elementary school there were a few small trees blown over. Lots of branches in my yard. I don’t have a rain gauge but I use the readings from the mesonet station less than a mile away - only 0.37! It blew in and past pretty quickly. Best lightning was actually post-storm as others have mentioned.
  4. APR 14-16 OBS - Summer to Shank to Swamp

    Only 1.15” event total in Sinking Spring, Berks. Drought! Really though that doesn’t match the maps posted by Tony but verified with the MESONET site less than a mile away. Still was enough to generate the first roof leak in my 11-year old house.

  7. Post Easter Rain to snow event 4/2

    Had 4” in Sinking Spring, Berks, this morning and it’s still hanging on decently in the shade. Here’s a 5pm pic of the north-facing hill out my front window...of course my south facing front yard is almost completely bare so I have to cling to something.

    Mod snow, 33, and about 3” in Sinking Spring, Berks County. Roads in my neighborhood probably have about 2” on them.

    I also get it, only on this site. Got it on both iPhone and iPad. Tried all the steps to get rid of it (everything I could find by googling) but it didn’t work. Got so bad that I started using Tapatalk instead, which works, by the way. Returned to using the regular site a couple days ago, and no pop ups, not sure if they’re gone for good, though.
  10. Grade the Winter of 17'-18'

    Like Feb, I was on the wrong side of the western edge a little too often for the coastal storms but locally jackpotted with the 12/7/17 and 2/17/18 storms. I would have preferred a longer lasting snow cover through the holiday season but that’s really a rarity. March was frustrating (for a snow lover) out here in western Berks but the 3/21 storm helped make up for that. Overall snow in Berks was a bit above average so I’ll grade snow a B. As for temps, I don’t need bitter cold but I like it consistently cold enough for snow threats with below freezing temps at night to help keep plants/trees dormant through March (no trees blooming in winter!). In spite of 80s in February, that’s going to be the case this year, plus bonus points for the cold holiday period, so temps get a B+. Overall we’ll round up to a B+ for the winter.

  13. Technically Spring Township, off Old Fritztown Road not far from Beverly Hills Tavern. I measure on a fairly well sheltered patio table. I wound up at 11.0” for my last measurement which seems fairly consistent with other area reports I have seen.
  14. First ob, was stuck at work all day. Nothing falling right now here in Sinking Spring, Berks, hoping we can get a backlash band to form. Measured 10.5” which includes the less than half inch we had yesterday. A great storm for the first full day of spring!
