  1. Just got woken up by what must have been a very close lightning strike. Almost jumped out of my skin lol - was not expecting that.
  2. Similar to PHL, I’ll call it .1 maybe .2 right across the river in West Deptford with a light glaze of ice before temps rose above freezing. First band dried up as it approached and snow was very brief when the main batch of precipitation arrived. I had no expectations with this one - there’s always next time?
  3. Just getting home - Rain/freezing rain -some light glazing on the trees, railings, cars, etc here in West Deptford. Roads seemed to be just wet in my local travels
  4. Out and about in the Glassboro area of south jersey and had a very quick transition from snow (maybe a tenth or two of accumulation) to mostly rain with a period of sleet in between that lasted about two minutes.
  5. Saw the SVR warning come out for my area so decided to watch from the porch as the line came through - was expecting to see some decent wind but just some quick very heavy rain. Wind was actually calmer just ahead of and during the line than it had been all night. Feels like a summer morning out there.
  6. Best we could do in West Deptford, Gloucester County. Grill is the only thing with any white. Grass, mulch, cars just wet. That band brought some huge flakes, but nothing beyond light snow.
  7. On the edge of that band near Philly here in West Deptford - so far the white rain is a little whiter but that’s it. We’ll see what happens as it swings through.
  8. So far just patches of a slushy coating on parts of the roofs and grass in West Deptford. That may even be generous.
  9. I was working in Ocean/ Monmouth counties today. There were periods of non accumulating snow/sleet/ slop during the day. My ride home was opposite of the norm - went through some areas of legitimate accumulating moderate snow with temps near freezing along coastal Monmouth/ ocean counties and the further inland I headed, the warmer/ wetter it got. Plain rain with an occasional half dead flake at home here in West Deptford. I never got too excited about this one - so I’m not terribly disappointed.
  10. Snowing lightly but steadily, visibility down a bit in Egg Harbor Township where I am working. Kind of surprised.
  11. Some decent storms with much needed rain and a good amount of close lightning strikes last night in West Deptford. Looks like just to my north/ northeast in the cherry hill area there was quite a bit of wind damage.
  12. Nasty wind with the leading edge of that line. Looked like it was weakening on radar as it approached but it flared up a bit at the last second.
  13. Torrential torrential torrential rain here. We never really had flood issues before but the last few heavy rain events the water has risen very rapidly here in the yard and the streets. I guess the water just has nowhere to go these days
  14. Very impressive shelf cloud as this thing rolled in. Pretty darn impressive winds too.
  15. I have a fascination for bad weather (heavy snow, severe thunderstorms, etc) but this last event made prolonged or just extremely heavy rain lose its luster to me (I’m not sure it had much luster beforehand anyway). Floods suck, water damage sucks, bring on the cold and snow.
