It has been decided for me that I am done snow blowing for today.   I knocked out a bunch of driveways, parked it to shovel off my deck and when I came back she was bedded down under the hemlock tree

4 inches after yesterday snowfall.

Yeti?! Or just @MikeD in Havertown?! Haha. Buddy posted this on his Facebook:

Yep... rain soaked slop.... heavy snow here now.

 

looks like a secondary warm pocket aloft moving in from the west. And as I’m writing this, starting to switch up too.

From a local reporter on twitter just now:

No surprise. Event was downplayed as minor across networks. False sense of security, doesn’t take much anymore to get back ups and gridlock.

It's a shame that many blow off warnings from the NWS. I guess this is a case when we know NW areas are going to see 4" of snow in 3-4 hours that "extreme wording" needs to be placed on that period of time. Otherwise, the average Joe think "Hmmmm.......3 inches of snow Monday???.....no big deal".

There seemed to be a lot of emphasis from the local TV networks - even for out where we live - on the change to rain, temps warming to near 40 degrees, main roads all being wet, etc. Less emphasis on the thump of heavy snow and what impact that would have while it was occurring.

In defense of the NWS, they did issue a special statement about heavy snow rates. 

We (weather enthusiasts) know that. Our neighbors.....probably not. That's the problem. I had to talk my neighbor out of going to an Dr. appt. at 1pm, this morning. When she called the office at 9am they told her "It's not even snowing".

People are CLUELESS.

I-78 in Lehigh Valley looks to be quite the show during this storm, reports of accidents, both lanes blocked, traffic being rerouted.

Always a bad choice to use that road in questionable weather.
