Thunderstorms will never ever ever ever ever ever come close to the scenery of a snow covered landscape with a sun set 

Just got an email from Shutterfly with the “memories from this day last year”. Couldn’t be any more different. Grass was starting to green up, my gardens were all cleaned up and getting ready for mulc

This guy showed up just after I posted

It's not last winter anymore. Tom's 2.5 inch-an-hour rate for Thursday a.m. looks accurate, which would mean that more snow would have fallen in 7 minutes and 30 seconds than fell all last winter at PHL. Also, the 0.6 at PHL Friday would be double the 2019-20 total.

I was very similar this time for my area.  Overall I think I managed 4.40 snow and then sleet/ice.  I took a pic of that in my hand, not sure what the amount was since some of this was compacted snow/snowmelt as well. I think I'm around 190 feet AGL. Just looked at the local cocorahs station, and it recorded 4.3 new snow over the 18th/19th.

In my larger area of Hunterdon County, I can drive about 4 or 5 miles north or northwest and the snowfall observations will almost always be higher. Thanks for the photo, @frankdp23. I always glad when our measurements are in line with each other. LOL

I have to pay attention to these sw flow aloft events going forward if there is an orographic favoring of these bands along/northwest of the fall line.  This and the Super Bowl they almost fell one on top of the other. Or is it just the luck of the band. I really don't know.

And today, 2/22, is number 3. Wonder if the atmosphere has memory phenomena could be figured into this as well.

This one was a little more nebulous. I think this one had more to do with enough elevation/cold air to keep it as snow.  I suppose it can be said that the water equivalent playing field was evened vs a northwest drop off. 

Edit: After posting the w/e map, a case could be made for a wagon north across Mercer & Middlesex.
