  4. Thanks Tony! Appreciate the kind words. Just did my 18z liquid equivalent which was .22 with 3" on the ground (average of 4.7" at 12z) so I am not second guessing myself anymore.
  5. Thanks. Been doing it for 11 years now and clearing the board at each reporting time. Cleaning the board leads to less compaction, so I would think the opposite would show (my totals slightly higher than someone who does not clear the board, right?). The snow depth is basically in line with the snowfall, so just a bit head-scratching and surprising. I appreciate your thoughts.
  6. Looks like the midnight obs will be my last measurement and it will be 4.9" for the official measurement here at ABE. Seen some reports in the area of 7 - 8". Trying to figure how those are so high when my measurements were lower. Could it be elevation or banding?
  7. Heavy sleet in allentown.....
  8. I just packed away the snowboard this weekend Mitchell.... I see reverse psychology isn't even working anymore with the euro....
  9. This is terrible news. My condolences and prayers go out to Jim's family and his extended family at Mt. Holly. I have been performing the duties of snow measuring for ABE for the past decade and Jim took such an active part in improving the program. He ALWAYS was there to answer any questions and any emails I sent him. In fact, he usually took the time to call me instead of replying on email. That personal touch will be lost. He seems so excited in the advances in the program and truly seemed to be a caring person. On a couple of occasions, when I posted something on facebook about health concerns about my daughter, he CALLED me just to see how she was doing. Although I only met Jim a few times at the office and for a site visit here in Allentown, I feel I knew him better than I should have. And that was because of Jim's caring and warm personality. You will be missed Jim!
