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.

We didn’t get all that much snow from Sunday’s storm, we did get a lot of wind. It will be the last storm of the year, and it was a windy one.

Record December Snowfall In Lancaster

- 99 words

Tags:

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.

Strong Warm February Storm

Yesterday a strong storm system developed and moved into the great lakes bringing with it a strong cold front. We had highs in the 60s with Sun most of the day and that helped create a really impressive squall line moving east across Pennsylvania. At one point it was moving east at 75 mph but it was just a bit too late for us in northwest Lancaster county. I broke up and we barely got a shower.

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.

Large Hurricane Ike In The Northern Gulf Of Mexico

Hurricane Ike has maximum sustained winds near 100 miles per hour right now but the real story is it’s size. It’s a big storm with hurricane force winds extending up to 115 miles from the center. Tropical storm force winds extend up to 255 miles from the center. The minimum pressure (945 millibars) is borderline low enough to support a category 4 storm but I imagine the size of the whole storm is keeping the gradient from being tight enough to cause the winds.

Tropical Storm Hanna Makes Landfall

Tropical storm Hanna moved into the Carolinas last night and north, then northeast through Virginia and is now off the coast. It dumped heavy rains in some areas and in my back yard we received heavier rainfall than I had expected. I figure that was going to happen when I saw the radar this morning and felt the humidity. Dew point of 72 or 73 today made it feel like summer and not September.

Two Noresters Within A Week In May

May 12 and two nice nor’easter in the past week. This has been an cool weather week for sure. They produced tornadoes in the Midwest and in the south and heavy rain in the mid Atlantic. They even had some snow today in the laurel highlands of Pennsylvania today. This most recent storm would have made an awesome winter storm. I think it would have been a great snow maker. It’s not too fast moving and keeping temps in the 40’s in May here would lead me to believe there would have been enough cold air for snow in the winter.

Hot And Humid Today Then Severe Storms

We had a great time attending the GOTCHA event today. There were tons of prizes, including a very special Team Alamo coin. I’m very disappointed to not win that. It was hot and humid today.. It’s never a good thing when you wake up to thick fog and temperatures in the 70’s in summer. Topped out with highs in the low to mid 90s with dew points near 80. Not fun.
