    Winter 2018/2019 vent/meltdown thread

    The view here is a firm C-, for slightly below average. My season total of 22.95 inches (so far) is right on the area average, but the "artistic presentation" category is reduced by all the nuisance storms under an inch. I'm no longer the snow weenie I used to be but I do hope for the One Big One every year. This season was disappointing.

    Smarch 3rd-4th Obs

    Late to the party but final storm total: 3.25 inches. Biggest hazard during clearing and shoveling is all the snow blowing out of the trees. Otherwise, a very pretty morning with heavy tree coatings and slate-grey skies.

    Smarch 3rd-4th Obs

    2.0 inches, falling at moderate rate. Temp 32, wind light to nil. A very pretty evening.

    Smarch 3rd-4th Obs

    Went through a period of "white rain" but now changed to all snow at a moderate rate. Minimal accum on grass; most hard surfaces are still wet and warm. Although small, the flakes seem heavy and wet. Temp 34 deg; wind calm.

    Smarch 3rd-4th Obs

    And so it begins again ... light rain for the last 20 min or so, now with an occasional small flake mixed in. 38 degrees, no wind.

    Smarch 3rd-4th Obs

    Hard to believe 40 degrees will turn into 6" of snow but I'm along for the ride ... bring it!

    March 1st-2nd a fluff delight to mud season again

    3.25" here. Some last-ditch flurries hanging on but no further accum. expected.

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

    Mostly stopped now with very fine bits still falling. 2.5 inches here; more of a nuisance than a snowstorm but it was pretty for a while earlier.

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

    It's Game On here -- just started snowing lightly. Small flakes, no wind; a nice "movie set" snow

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

    How quickly things change. I went out to get the paper earlier in mostly rain and a small bit of icing. Later I go out on some errands and get a couple choruses of "fun with the traction control" due to sleet and freezing rain. A little rain is mixing in now.

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

    29 deg, 1.0 inch of new snow + light glaze of ice on top. Changing slowly to rain and a bit of frz rain.

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

    1.5 inches final here; no sleet and only a brief dose of rain before it stopped. Sun has been slightly visible at times.

    2/1 can we fluff our way to 1”?

    My Nuthin' Burger is turning into a small serving, done rare; we're now a little over 1/2 inch and still snowing, lightly but continuously. It's cold enough that I was able to have a little fun with the traction control before the twp. came by and salted the roads.

    2/1 can we fluff our way to 1”?

    Very light snow here for the last couple hours. Just a coating all over ... so far, looks like we're being served another Nuthin' Burger.
  16. It's another Nuthin' Burger here ... 0.5 in, and that's a charitable measurement. No need to blow or shovel. (A close friend who lives just west of Hamburg reports 5+ inches.)
  17. Game on! Light but steady snow has started here.

    Temps/Obs/Boring Weather Discussion

    Didn't see it mentioned elsewhere but "we" got mentioned in the Phila Inquirer this morning. Quoting from "Weather ahead looks cold, wet" by Anthony R. Wood: "Recall that Philadelphia's weekend rainstorm was preceded by a week-plus drumbeat of potential frozen pestilence. Discussion of the threat actually started on Jan. 10 on the Phillywx.com chat board...." Hey-- we read it here first! <wink>
  19. Belated report: 8 a.m this morning -- 15/16 inch, or 0.94

    2018 The Year Of Being Meteorologically Cheated Summaries

    All the stats notwithstanding, somebody or something owes me a summer. I was robbed by rain and harassed by the humidity! I can't remember any summer with fewer "nice" days.
  21. Over-performing indeed! Accum = 4-7/8 inches (4.875") , Temp 29 and changing to mostly ice pellets.
  22. Snow began here 10:30 a.m. Checking at 1:30 showed 3.5" accum and 28 degrees. Just beginning to change to sleet now. Edited to add: at this posting, ChesCo EMS Dispatch shows over 90 active traffic incidents.

    Lawn/Garden/Golf Thread

    Heh! Oops ... Came out this morning to a light but even coating of frost on the front yard. Thanks to others for the guidance but the answer on grass seed this late is now plain: Nope!

    Lawn/Garden/Golf Thread

    Your opinions, please ... I see no freezing overnight temps prog'd for the next 8-10 days or so. How say you on putting down grass seed this late? Any hope of survival? Thanks in advance!

    Temps/Obs/Boring Weather Discussion

    Yes, I've noticed the same about the leaves. My property is well-treed, as are my neighbors' yards; some are browning and some are not. I came back from my 4 day weekend trip to find the front yard covered with leaves and the back yard peppered as well. Looks like "leaf madness" has begun earlier than normal this year.
