I've added a couple of videos from the storm.  The first one is at my first observation at 5:00 p.m. 




This next video was at 11:00 p.m., my last observation before morning. 5.4" on the ground at the time.

What a cool sight this is!  We haven't had this much snow fall since the big storm on Nov. 30-Dec. 1 2006.  It's been a long time coming.  Presently, light snow is falling with a light north wind.

Yuck??? You've still got Cancun on the brain, don't you. :)

Ami Jo said...

Yep!! And I finally started A&P, and don't want to miss the 2nd class!

Diggin the report WxWatcher! You all got a great snow amount, thanks for keeping up with it. I've got a radar loop for you if you'd like one for a post storm recap. Let me know!

Are you in the same county with the move?

Christy said...

I agree with Ami Jo! Yuck! I'm glad we didn't get as much as you guys. It is still coming down here, but I'm not sure we will end up with 5" like was predicted.

Btw, I love reading your blog. If I ever add in weather-type events in my books I will come to you as a resource!

<3 You!

OSNW3 - I'm lovin this. It's been fun tracking the storm and making the reports, thanks for reading. Of course, I would greatly appreciate a storm loop! We are actually not that far from our old house. As the crow flies, maybe only a mile.

Christy - Thank you for your comment. Coming from a CA teacher, that means a lot! Looks like you all may get 4" or so, which is a nice amount, too! (of course I'm not driving on country roads here). Glad you had a day off of school. Start writing that next book!

Once I play a game of Monopoly with my awesome son, then I might just do that. Fun activities for a snow day! :)

WxWatcher, working on something for you. It has been a very active month, that is for certain. Sneak peak, here when it's ready. It's a big file but entertaining when viewing in QuickTime.

And this entry just keeps getting better. Thanks for sharing the videos, always enjoy that. I see from your photos you have more than one grill. Sweet. MO looks nice in white.

OSNW3 said...

Ah crap. The link should have .gif extension, not .avi extension. Sorry for any confusion...

OSNW3, always appreciative of the work you do to provide radar loops. Thank you so much! Lots of analysis can be made. Have you connected this with the LRC?

The grill in the back yard is a smoker. The guy we bought the house from didn't want it and offered it to us. Now I want to smoke every piece of meat in our freezer! It's amazing.

Thanks for the comments!
