Extremely, extremely heavy returns over knoxville in excess of 50dbz!!! Gotta be absolute pound town in there.

That seems to be heading towards the CR area soon.

i know it's been discussed repeatedly, but it's kind of amazing how bad models did with this storm.  They universally agreed on one thing, there would be a very narrow band of heavy snow.  That simply didn't happen.  The areas that were supposed to get hit the hardest with this band are dry on the radar right now and it's not going to fill in.  The highest report in Iowa so far is 2" just north of Ames.  I wouldn't be surprised if the highest in the whole state ends up being 3 to maybe 4".  Tough storm.  

Yeah I always kind of doubted the amount the models were kicking out and kept waiting for them to adjust downward as we got closer. System was weakening and moving too fast to get the amounts the models were trying to say, 6-12+"

Radar looks like it should be ripping here but it’s not. Unless it changed back to sleet. Can’t tell right now.

The back edge of this thing might...just might...make this a decent event. Ripping good out there and should last for a bit. Nice fatties falling from the sky. I’d say I doubled my totals in the last 90 minutes.

Sleet is my least favorite form of precip. It’s a ***** to shovel and it just robs us of good snow.

Yep. While my location did have some good snows they just didn't last for more then 20 minutes at a time and then go back to -PL or GS (graupel) with lighter snow mixed in. Interesting thing on DMX radar the past several hours has been what appears SNSQ in very thin bands. When they come across it's gets near whiteout and when they pass vis goes to 7SM. Never seen this here before. Might have something to do with the BLSN but it certainly is accumulating during the passages.

Still snowing here. I haven’t been outside since noon so I don’t know how much we’ve gotten. But it turns out MPX should have stayed with their original forecasted amounts from yesterday morning. Whoops.

Gee, local areas where population is not too heavy saw a good burst of snow.  So what?  Has such a thing never occurred before?

 

This storm will be remembered as one thing and as one thing only, a bust of the most extraordinary proportions; and nothing else.

I also want to go on the record and say that all those posts last night attacking me and wishing death on me were a disgrace.

 

I playfully joke around with people and make pleasant satirical comments; that any intelligent person could plainly see are just kidding around.

 

But to wish death and all those other terrible things said about me; that was a disgrace.

Mods should really mod harder around here. This forum is going downhill fast with all the bickering, complaining, etc. AmWx is tighter on that, which makes it more pleasant. All the whining and bickering adds NOTHING to any sort of discussion period. There is a complaining thread for a reason and there is a handful of posters that feel like they can just complain whenever and wherever they want.

that? I do snow removal all over Lincoln and the most I could measure was .75-1” If I was lucky. Most of the south facing buildings had so pretty good 3-6” drifts but that’s about the most I could find.

I know that, and thanks. But I'm talking about laying a heavier hand on complaining and fighting in threads where it shouldn't be, keep that in the complaining thread. Not only that, but pointless weenie posts primarily from 3 or 4 people in particular like "**** this storm, and this winter -- looks like no snow here again. Congrats xxxxxx on your snow, can't wait to get the broom out again. What a joke and waste of my time lol." all the while 3-5 days out. It not only gets old, but makes the board look bad. It's just stuff that you don't see on other boards, but see here for some reason.

I’m going with 3” here. Impossible to measure. Some nice drifts around 5-6”.

Kinda funny but MPX said before this storm that they’re going to start grading themselves on their storm forecasts. I wonder what grade they’ll give themselves. They predicted 3-5” Wed, then dropped it down to 1” this morning. We ended somewhere near their original amount.
