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

    The birds were a but happy and enjoyed the seed I put on the deck. With that, they disturbed some of the snow on my railing. Either that or they were trying to make a new friend! I'd say we got somewhere between 1.5-2 inches.

    I did not do a very good job of placing my measuring devices. Darn my husband was right. Now that I have enough snow I have removed the barrier flower pot and will allow the snow to build around my ruler and penguin. Also, my three year old is quite upset that the penguin is outside. We have convinced him that penguins like the cold and snow. We shall see how long that lasts haha.

    My son actually has a Bumble stuffed toy that I almost used, but didn't want him getting wet and cold from the snow. Opted for the penguin instead. We shall see if he gets buried today. I'm sure the kids will get a kick out of watching him.

    A heavier band of precipitation finally moving towards me. Last little bit actually brought down enough cold air to have some decent size snowflakes mix in. 2-12-2019 wintry precip.mp4
  7. Now you see it...now you don't Pictures taken within 5 minutes of one another facing towards Phoenixville/Valley Forge
  8. We were coming through there right around the same time! Left the office about 2:11 so I was at the Rofo exit probably around 2:30ish. Ran into Giant for some yummy taco ingredients and tasty treats for the kiddos. Roads were mainly wet between Rofo and Spring City. Secondaries are snow covered at this point and my grass is pretty much covered.

    Ginger Zee’s Rescue Heroes

    Not sure if anyone has watched Ginger Zee’s new show Rescue Heroes on abc, but tomorrow’s episode is going to showcase a tornado that hit my hometown of Midlothian, Virginia last year. The tornado was produced as part of the remenants of Florence and touched down about 10 miles from where my family lives and where I grew up. Unfortunately there was one fatality. The show will also have some interviews with the local fire department which I feel is a part of my family. My dad retired as a Batallion Chief with Chesterfield County Fire and EMS after 35 years of service. If you are interested, the show comes on tomorrow, Saturday 1/19/19 at 11 am on abc. Enjoy!
  10. I like to call this a "watch outside your window event".
  11. SREF Plumes are making me a happy mama this morning. Don't want to be completely snowed in with two youngsters, but have enough to get them outside (even if I do have to bundle them up for frigid temperatures.)

    Jumping Back In

    Just wanted to jump in and say "Hi!" I've been on hiatus for a while due to starting a family and moving out of the weather department here at my company. I've been missing having the opportunity to forecast amongst my peers so thought I'd attempt to jump back in. Hope everyone in the Philly area has been doing well and look forward to kicking off my return to forecasting with some fun snow storms.

    Nope never got anything. Just googled the green heron and I think you're right. I thought it looked like some kind of heron but never knew they could be that small. Thanks!

    Medium - long range tropics

    Ha! I think it's a super neat image. My dad actually went down to SC to help with recovery efforts after Hugo. He has lots of stories from that one.
