    2018/2019 snow total thread

    Tamaqua, PA 7.75"
  2. I've been hearing a lot about non-existent PennDot trucks from multiple people since yesterday afternoon. As for the trucks, until you are fighting with a dispatcher that is almost threatening you with your job if you don't at least make an effort to pick or deliver the load, you have no idea what we go through. And before anyone says, "quit and find a better job", well, generally most companies and dispatchers are the same. As for the storm. I had 7.75" of frozen for the event.
  3. I know were still pretty far out when it comes to models and tropical systems, but are the players in place to make that stall real, or can Florence still come north and impact Eastern PA?

    Medium - long range tropics

    Until she splits Florida in two and then runs across the gulf to Houston...lol
  5. Likely it was. I got 0.88" during the overnight/early morning hours...
  6. Yeah, it's been a pretty "meh" event for my location so far.

  9. What I bolded in your quote is what I'm afraid of.
  10. It might just be an anomaly in the Tamaqua/Hazleton area, but it just seems like it's been cooler. Can't argue with those stats, though.
  11. At this point I wonder if we'll even have a summer (at least like the ones I remember from the past)??? This wash, rinse, repeat of the western ridge/eastern trough is getting old rather quickly. Does or can the pattern break down, or is summer just going to be miserable with a warm/hot day here and there followed by days of cool clouds and showers?

    Thanks. I did hit the yard with fertilizer over the weekend, expecting a bit of rain to wash it in, but all we got was a few sprinkles. Go figure...lol

    Red thread was my thinking as well, but to the naked eye, the threading is more grey than red.
