Icy Sidewalks

We got out for a nice walk this evening after supper. It was our first after supper walk I think since last fall that it wasn’t dark. It was nice not being blinded by the passing traffic’s headlights. There were a disappointing number of homes and businesses that didn’t clear the snow yesterday and just had an icy mess.

Milk, Bread and Eggs

I’ve always been curies as to why every time it snows people feel the need to go to the store and buy milk and eggs and bread. Why these items and not something that won’t spoil if you were to lose power. The part I always laugh at is even in the worst storms in most of the world things will be back to normal within a day or two. Even if you can’t drive someplace most people could (gasp) walk to get what they may need.

Record December Snowfall In Lancaster

This season so far has been pretty good for snow. Saturday was our third snowfall of the year, and Lancaster set anew record December snowfall at 16 inches. Southern parts of the county received 20 inches or more, and northern parts received as little as 8 inches of snow. Here at home we got about a foot. Rain for Christmas though will probably help melt a lot of the snow away, then early January looks to be warmer.

Finally A Snow Storm

It’s March first and looks like we might actually get some snow. State college has us under a winter storm warning for five to eight inches of snow here. The problem is we’ll be on the back edge of the precipitation and it’ll have a sharp cutoff. I’ll take the snow though. It’s much better than anything we’ve had so far this winter. Now my at my parents’ house in Bucks county are forecast to get eight to fourteen inches.

October 28th Storm

An October coastal storm system is developing off the mid Atlantic coast. It started yesterday with an area of rain developing and persisting through the night here in central Pa. This would have been a nice situation for a little snow here in January. Right now and yesterday during the afternoon the temperature held in the low 40’s Now in the Poconos and higher elevations of northern Pa. I wish I still had my place up near Hazleton and would be going up there.

Cold Night

It’s a pretty cold morning today for the end of February. My vantage pro2 recorded a low of 14.1 and the coldest it’s recorded this year has been 8 so it’s not that far off. Yesterday was chilly too. The wind made it feel even colder. It’s just a little more wasted cold. Today we should see a clipper move through the area but most of the snow will be to the north.

Snow And Lunar Eclipse In The Same Day

Yesterday gave two very nice surprises. First one was the clipper left us more than an inch of very fluffy snow accumulation. It just kept snowing, with nothing showing on radar anywhere near us. My guess would have to be the precipitation was below the radar beam. Last night about 9pm we decided to run to the store to pick something up and the moon was out. It had cleared up in time for the lunar eclipse!

Fun Little Ice Storm

Well this last storm was one of those times where the cold air just hangs tough at the surface. We ended up below freezing here until about 11am with freezing rain. Some of it was heavy. Cold air damming sure is fun to watch in action. It was a good thing state college issued the ice storm warning. The roads seemed to mostly stay wet but it was really accumulating on the trees and wires and other things.
