  1. Feb Drought Busting Weekend Observations 7/21-7/22.

    1.46" total in Worcester, PA.
  2. Worcester - 1.32 " of rain but in my backyard the big deal was the wind. Lost a large white pine (maybe 40' high??) Snapped (or twisted???) off 1/3 up from the ground. Took out my neighbors fence as well. I was not home and missed all the action. I will look in the AM to see if there is an evidence of a lightning hit.

  14. Worcester, PA. 12" on the ground. 9 PM Still snowing in a band that is "training" through Monto county. Doesn't look like storm is moving much if at all.
  15. Collegeville area impact - I am in Worcester and got about 7". Still snowing but the end looks near. It was not in my opinion anywhere near the effect of the event of last week. There are some outages, but not widespread. There was hardly any traffic as most businesses, schools etc closed last night. I think we struggled with temps being a little to warm here in Worcester. It was 33 to 35 all night. Snow fell and melted. Only the heavy bands accumulated and then melted off the roads. This afternoon was the event as there was heavy snow and it accumulated fast in the grass and some on the highways. It seems most of the snow we got was from banding coming in from NJ. There was not what I would call the traditional snow coming up from the south that accumulated before the banding started. As I stated in an earlier post I feel the bands struggled to get past central Montco. Not sure how much snow from the bands got to Limerick or Pottstown, etc. Certainly not to Lancaster Cty. etc. I tend to base my "impact" level on fire calls. Other than un-weather related ones we have had none. Driving is bad now but there is little traffic. There are some vehicle rescues, etc. but not like what would be going on if everything had not closed last night.
