  1. Thank you Heisey. 20 years ago seems like last year. Yes the watches for 1 to 2 feet were put up on a Friday for the March 2001 storm. I remember the PD 2 storm in that the snow started 8 hours before it was supposed to.... here in Gloucester county nj, we had over a foot of snow by 1 pm while Trenton barely started..
  2. Around this time 20 years ago.....hard to believe, we were looking forward to a colossal storm in which some forecasters were touting the potential of January 1996 and March 1962 storms combined into one. 1 to 2 feet or more of heavy wet snow with power outages and devastating flooding along the coast..... turned into 3 to 5 inches N+W, 1 to 3 inches city east. Any clips of these forecasts would be much appreciated.
  3. With the mass availability of vaccines available by the end of spring, there is no reason for our hypocritical political leaders to arbitrarily effect business, schools etc. The damage our government, on both sides of the aisle, has done to our country in so many ways is criminal.
  4. Speaking of beauty, affordability, close to home and winters with an average of 70 plus inches of snow, the endless mountain region of pa is a good spot. Some areas of Sullivan, Susquehanna, Wayne counties etc. go above 2000 feet in elevation ..... and away from the ridiculous taxes of Carbon and Monroe counties...
  5. Always thought about living in the mountains in the fall/winter while renting out an island home and vice versa (@6 months each) . My choices would be (including affordability) Canaan valley WV with over 140 inches of annual snowfall, just a 6 hour ride from this area if you want to catch up with family etc... and Aruba with their tradewinds, lying beneath the "hurricane belt" for the most part and not much difference in temperature year round. You can enjoy the seasons while getting the most bang for your buck imho....😊
  6. Driving to Vineland last evening, observed wet snow and rain mix all the way there ..... was 36 degrees @ 11:30 pm. Different story today with filtered sunshine and temperatures in the mid 50s.
  7. I remember on this day back in 1989, working in AC at the time ( Friday the 24th) , I experienced the worst true blizzard in my lifetime. 18 to 24 inches of snow along the coast, freezing cold temperatures whipped around by storm force winds. Then to come home to bare ground 40 miles to the west....ugh...
  8. And today, 2/22, is number 3. Wonder if the atmosphere has memory phenomena could be figured into this as well.
  9. I'll take March 2001's disappointment and make it a reality😂
  10. More pics from my long walk today. Perfect winter day. You can somewhat see Camelback mountain in the sunset pic which is @25 miles from where I took the pic.
  11. Thank you. My place is not too far from Bushkill Falls. Beautiful and affordable area (minus the taxes). However, as time goes on, becoming more rundown.
  12. Thank you. In my view, today was an absolute perfect winter's day.
  13. View from my deck in Pike county. 30 degrees with a stiff breeze and sunshine does not feel too bad in late February. Good day to remove caked in snow and ice in the sun. Just 2 weeks ago with similar conditions.....not so much...
  14. Hello.. newbie here.. I believe you hit on something here. Going off of the top of my head in recent memory, here are several more instances where intense banding has set up in the general area that you mentioned. Day after the Superbowl 2014. Coastal storm in January of 2014 when banding in the midday hours crushed this area. Feb. 5, 2010 - banding crushed that area most of the morning. Boxing day storm 2010- impressive band near the end of the storm. Surprise snowstorm January 2000- that area crushed.
