The Big Storm

19:15 p.m. No snow. Cold and windy.

7:45 p.m. 30 degrees. The snow has let up. Some traffic moving.

4:35 p.m. 31 degrees and snowing. It's a winter damn wonderland out there. The snow is piling up. Everything is white except the brick wall across the street. Nothing is moving.

2:25 p.m. 28 degrees and snowing. It has stopped playing around with petty little droplets and is now snowing full time. A classic snowstorm, big flakes coming down fast amd damgerous.

12:55 p.m. 30 degress and snowing again. Snow on top of rain, a treacherous combination.

9:35 a.m. 33 degrees, cold, nasty rain, The snow on the ground is turning to slop.

8:00 a.m. snow turned to rain, then stopped. As of now, in my town, the big old storm is just a big sloppy mess.

Still falling lightly but steadily. About 5 1/2 inches at 2:50. The wind blew some away from my measuring station.

It's coming down in wet, furtive little droplets, but it's sticking. About 5 inches as of 12:40 a.m.

Hi DB, the snow started later then they predicted here in NJ, it's coming down quite heavily now, with the worst to come tomorrow I believe. Stay warm and dry!

I believe we are in the middle of a blizzard as I type! We have over 3' of snow on the ground between the weekend storm & the new snow today. Come on spring!!!!
