This winter, there really hasn’t been all that much fur to us in the snow or even cold department. Today we’re finally getting our first appreciable snow Accumulation, and even that won’t last.
This winter so far has been abysmal at best as far as snowfall is concerned here in Central Pennsylvania. We ended up getting a coating overnight, which was nice to see.
It was a really mild late December day. Once the sun came out, it warmed up to near sixty. We took advantage of that and did a sled WOD as a partner WOD.
It was a nice sunny day, and it warmed up into the upper forties. I big different from the recent days. The skies were sunny, so I collected some sunshine on the patio.

Today has been a cold and windy day with gusts getting up near 30 mph. The high was only near freezing though with lots of snow squalls around. Just not one here in Mount Joy.
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.
It’s the middle of March, and we’re finally getting a decent snow storm. The storms so far this winter have been mostly mediocre around here at best. We ended up with three or four inches.
I have always liked seeing fresh snowfall on the trees and stuff when the sun first comes out after a storm. Today was one of those chances I got to see that before it melts or blows off.
Even though the temperature has been above freezing all day, and it’s been warm, it did actually snow today. Some even accumulated in the areas that don’t get any of the strong solar radiation yet.
We had a decent snow squall actually survive after it moved east of the Mountains. Decent burst of snow in Lancaster and even more at home in Mount Joy with a fresh dusting.
I feel like I remember cold fronts being much sharper when I was a kid. That could be just the bias of remembering bigger deals. This morning’s cold front featured a nice squall line with wind and quick drop in temperature and dew point
A few miles can make all the difference in weather sometimes. We went to Lititz today, and it appeared that they had more snow than we did yesterday. Ours is almost all gone, but the ground was still covered up there.

Last night before I went to bed the radar was looking really good for snow. This morning it was pretty clear that the storm over performed with what looked like at least 4 inches of snow.

Today’s high in the 50s means we get to have cheeseburgers on the grill for supper! I good part of the day was even sunny!

This time last year we quite a memorable sleet storm. It was the most sleet I can remember seeing.
