  1. I’m in the cell that’s over Limerick right now. Little wind to speak of, but constant thunder - very cool.
  2. I’ve had the good fortune of experiencing some truly awesome winter events living in the NW burbs, starting with Feb. 1978, the first storm I can recall. I was almost five years old, and remember that my older brothers built a network of tunnels through the drifts and piles from clearing our driveway. I was at Penn State during the winter of 93-94, including the cold that forced closure of the university for the first time, due to potential rolling blackouts. There were many epic snowball fights in lot 80 that winter, along with some very inappropriate snowmen. Good times.
  3. Heavy wind-driven snow and maybe 1/4 mile visibility at best in Ardmore.
  4. Roads. Are. Horrible. Spin outs on Montgomery Avenue from Ardmore to Gulph Mills, accidents on 76, and 422 is its usual nightmarish self. Heading to Limerick.
  5. Couple of close CTG strikes and fat drops on 422 at Oaks. No wind.
  6. Sleetfest '17 continues in Limerick. Just out testing the shoveling conditions, feels like both the weight and consistency of coarse sand.
  7. Pouring sleet in Limerick. Flakes trying to mix in once in a great while but not winning the battle.
  8. Caught this this morning before it melted on my deck rail. They were melting rather fast.
  9. Chipping sparrows and is that a dark eyed junco? Very nice pic. Snow has been moderate most of the late morning with large flakes a stone's throw from PTW, but it's only starting to stick now. I'd call it a coating.
  10. Last week was more about reliance on a normally very reliable model when that model was a far outlier from the word go. Other guidance was effectively ignored until said reliable model caved. In this case there seems to be more agreement and each run is trending in the same general direction. I like an upside bust as much as anybody, but it's not looking great.
