NFT: Snow totals?

Steve L : 3/14/2017 8:43 pm
Whatcha got so far? I've shoveled about a foot so far in Rochester and it's supposed to snow for another 12 hours. No school today for the kids and they've already cancelled tomorrow. We still have people without power from the wind storm we had last week. Not a good situation for us.

10 inches. About 4 inches overnight, then very heavy snow from 7-9AM. Sleet came in after that, then a little more snow after. Heavy to shovel.

I measured about 8-10 different spots around property trying to avoid drift measurements & I averaged 22" (Had some 16's and some 26/27's)

Plowing the grounds & neighbors all day with my Old '56 Willys CJ-5 is quite a task (No brakes either ZERO! drop the blade when I need to stop) Will have to get out there today to "clean up" all the shit that blew around last night & it looks like we may have got another 2-3 overnight. The worst part of my clean up after snow storms is clearing roofs!! OMG My F'in arms want to fall off by time I'm done. NOT Looking forward to today!!!
Almost 10" here in Brooklyn

Maybe 6 inches but most of it was sleet. We got a lot of precipitation and had it been fluffy snow would have probably been about a foot

but for us the bottom 4 was packed down ice. Snowblower went right over the top. Had to make two passes and chop the bottom layer with a shovel first. First time I've ever had that problem.

Took three of us an hour. No fun.

Probably shouldn't have waited so long to start clearing.

The aftermath is worse than driving thousands of kids on terrible in snow school buses up and down un-plowed or under plowed roads and having kids who lives closer to the schools have to walk to and from school in blizzard conditions?

What exactly is the aftermath, maybe I'm just not understanding, but I definitely don't think I agree.

the standard they use in most New England towns is if the roads are clear for buses and the sidewalks clear enough for walkers you have school.
I don't have an exact measurement  
JerryNYG : 3/15/2017 9:57 am : link
but here in the northern Adirondacks it was well over three feet last night and it continues to fall. My car is completely buried, the drifts against my front door were almost as tall as me this morning.

Most of the sidewalks in my hood and near my work are still covered in snow that has turned into ice. The trains are a total mess, there are lines out of the subway entrances for some lines.

Should've realized by saying snow day that people would've thought I was referring to school, just meant moreso in general. Doesn't bother me at all to see schools shut down the day of a snow storm. It's forcing everyone to get back the next day that concerns me.
Problem is, you're not getting both  
jcn56 : 3/15/2017 10:12 am : link
I can see the argument, the day after is still at best a nuisance and at worst dangerous, but the financial loss associated with shutting things down for one day is bad enough, for two days you'd have an extremely hard sell.

A few years ago around Christmas NYC was absolutely buried, and a combination of Sanitation Dept shenanigans and City Hall miscalculation resulted in the outer boroughs remaining buried for a couple of days. Businesses all over the city were screaming bloody murder, and that was with so much snow on the streets and sidewalks that the city was literally paralyzed.

I knew what you meant I just think school is the barometer, if the cities and towns feel it's safe enough for students and faculty to get to school, which probably has the highest standard, then most businesses will assume it's safe for their employees to get to work.

Boston has the same problems with the T and commuter rails, though they get a fraction of the riders that NYC does.

Most places I worked (Cambridge, Boston, etc.) had a snow policy that if Cambridge or Boston schools were closed, so was the office. Or if the Governor declared a state of emergency the office was closed.

Commuting sucks in general, I work from home and have for the past 8 years or more, so I'm probably less in tune with how bad it is days like today.
For sure. I'm mostly just bitching after a brutal commute this a.m.  
Giantology : 3/15/2017 10:20 am : link
It's definitely a difficult situation and jcn you're of course right in that getting a full 2 days won't fly from a financial loss standpoint.

I envy you pjcas, up until a few weeks ago I was freelancing full-time and working from home/the couch just about every day. Sure am missing that!
30-plus inches, although I haven't  
Beezer : 3/15/2017 10:26 am : link
physically measured here yet. Soon, though. Inevitable, heading out there to deal. lol

Meanwhile, it's slowed, but STILL SNOWING in the Bing (which is said to be the epicenter of the storm). Yay?
Actually, working from home kinda sucked a bit yesterday  
jcn56 : 3/15/2017 10:32 am : link
if I were working in an office I'd have certainly been home for the day, but WFH I had a full day of calls and still had to shovel/remove snow around that schedule. That basically gave that snow the time it needed to set itself into a granite form encapsulating my driveway and front steps.

Shit, even cleaning the car off was a giant pain in the ass.
a bit of a shit-show  
RicFlair : 3/15/2017 12:05 pm : link
A bit of a shit-show here, county-wide travel ban, but the city of Binghamton inside the county lifted theirs, then the mayor when asked if the county overrules the city he just said ask the county.

42 inches at a relatives house, south of Utica, confirmed by NOAA.
Totals from Quebec  
Scott in Montreal : 3/15/2017 4:15 pm : link
Montreal got 42cm (16 1/2 inches)yesterday and Sherbrooke Quebec (90 minutes south of Montreal) won the prize with a huge 75cm (29 1/2 inches) yesterday.

It has continued snowing here all day so the totals are a bit higher. Here in Montreal we had a major accident that stranded 300 cars on Highway 13. Some people were stuck in there cars for 10+ hours.
Highway 13 - ( New Window )

What a joke. Why were these people still on the roads? They don't look plowed at all!

to get some food and went over to a friends house to help them dig out. Holy shit it's like armageddon in Scranton. Most side roads not even passable, cars plowed in everywhere and people trying to dig out everywhere and throwing all the snow into the middle of the streets. Cars stuck everywhere. I've never seen anything like it
the idea that the forecasters get criticized because  
Del Shofner : 3/15/2017 9:10 pm : link
this wasn't a "blizzard" in NYC is just crazy. First, NYC had a major storm - maybe only 8" of snow but that was topped by a crapload of sleet and freezing rain, and just walking around the city today - it's a mess out there, as much so as after a "blizzard."

But the main point - it's just a few degrees of temp in March that makes all the difference. Up in the Hudson Valley there is 2 -3 *feet* of snow. Like 3 or 4 degrees F and 50 or 60 miles makes a big difference. You can't predict those differences with precision in advance.

It was a big storm no matter how you slice it. I think those criticizing the forecasters are way off base. They mostly had it right.
anyone  
MookGiants : 3/15/2017 9:59 pm : link
criticizing the forecasters right now is an idiot. The track changed at the last second, it's not like the storm never materialized. My area got nearly 3 feet of snow, the most we've ever seen in one day.

Those same people are the ones that ran guys like WeatherMan out of here. Fuck them. WeatherMan was a huge loss to the BBI community when he left here

Tom [Giants fan] : 3/16/2017 2:48 pm : link
This storm was supposed to track more off the coast but the day before, it all changed. I saw it coming 12 hours before the storm came. Saw the 24-30 inch totals we missed out on. 1-3 inches on Saturday and I think we will be ending winter and snow until next year after that. Temps start warming up around the 24th.
