Old Man Winter Woke Up

We're well into the blizzard and I'm looking at these upcoming snowfalls in the 10 day forecast:
  • Snow accumulation of a foot or more.
  • Snow accumulating 1 to 3 inches.
  • 1 to 3 inches of snow expected.
  • 1 to 3 inches of snow expected.
  • 3 to 5 inches of snow expected.
  • 1 to 3 inches of snow expected.
  • Snow accumulating 8 to 12 inches.
  • 5 to 8 inches of snow expected.

Old man winter must be in having his coffee as he sure isn't in Annapolis. We got less than a 1/2 inch.

Just curious which weather service you use, I like to visit different sources. Thanks

The meltdown is under way ...

intellicast has become my go-to site. I especially like the hourly tables.

Thanks ! I like the graphics, very informative.

I have been using weather underground, and on my tablet (ipad)the app "Wundermap" is great and customizable. Also like the radar on the NECN app. For forecasts I like the site Accuweather. I will add your Intellicast detail page to my list !

He sure weren't havin his **** coffie where i am. We flat out
got hammered. One of the worst snowfalls i've seen here. Last
one was in 05 where we got over 3 feet and 7 or 8 days later
another foot plus.
I've been snowblowin for 6 hrs straight. 3 tanks of gas through
this JD TRS 32 tackling drifts over 4 feet. I'm beat and havin a
nice cold Bud Light, Then i'm going to have another.

I'm bordering on jealous. I can't say I want as much snow as uberT and lee h received but I haven't had to use my snowblower in 2 years. Dribs and drabs and generally wet are all we've been getting. I'd like to see 15"s of powder. Just sayin'.
