1-2”/hr rates? Your getting rocked I’m sure.


35 dbz returns overhead. The lake I live on is about 400 yards wide and I cannot see the other side. At least 2”/hr rates right now. Unreal.

I hope the temperature stays below freezing...I would hate for your house to go under!

I'm going where the sun keeps shining
Through the pouring rain
Going where the weather suits my clothes
Banking off of the northeast winds
Sailing on a summer breeze
And skipping over the ocean like a stone

The back edge is approaching quickly. I’m not sure we’ll get that high. Will check when it’s done snowing.

There’s actually 11,482 lakes in the ‘Land of 10,000 Lakes.’

Actually, I don’t have flood insurance, as my house sits about 25 ft above lake level.

And twice that many if you consider a Lake 2.5 acres...

Yes, I know that...

 

Still, you might want to get some...I heard Pat Robertson is predicting a tsunami off Superior...

 

Talk about "banking off of that northeast wind!"!

September, 1864:

 

The Union soldiers burned Atlanta; but I assure you they took no pleasure in their task...they were forced to it; by a man they hated more than they could ever hate the Rebels; an ugly, sullen, unbelievably brutal man named William Tecumseh Sherman.

 

It was Sherman himself who started the awful fires; the fires that burned that great citadel of grace & beauty...

Looks like about 7 or 8 out there. Will take that any day! It's quite fluffy too.

Another 0.28" of rain, here, adding to an already wet month.  Again, I'm really looking forward to some ground-thawing the next few days so some of this water can soak in and the big puddle on my patio can drain.


season snowfall: 0.0"

 

'17-18: 39.5"      '16-17: 17.9"      '15-16: 20.0"      '14-15: 30.4"      '13-14: 48.3"      '12-13: 34.1"

 

Average snowfall: ~30"

MSP is reporting 6" on the button, more north of town where 6-8" has been reported...11-12" for a 2-day event ain't to shabby...more to come as we flip the calendar into March.

Your blower looks very much like mine when I lived in NMI. In Feb of '94, the pile where my drive met the street was so high, I had to fully open my chute and hope the machine would throw it high enough to land on top. I remember the pile was still 7 feet high in early April when my yard was already bare. That's what I call "no place left to put snow"  :lol:


Winter 2018-19 Snow Total = 7.4"  Oct: 0.0 Nov: 7.4 Dec: 0.0 Jan: 0.0 Feb: 0.0 Mar: 0.0 Apr: 0.0 (annual avg for mby = ~49.9", avg for last 10 seasons = 67.4" ) 135% of normal. One helluva stretch!!

 

2017-18 = 68.3"   2016-17 = 52"   2015-16 = 57.4"   2014-15 = 55.3"   2013-14 = 100.6" (coldest & snowiest in the modern record!)  2012-13 = 47.2"   2011-12 = 43.7"

 

Notable Blizzards/Snowstorms in SWMI: Nov 2015, Feb 2015, Jan 2014Feb 2011, Dec 2000, Jan 1999, Mar 1998, Jan 1982, Jan 1979, Jan 1978, Jan 1977, March 1973, Jan 1967, March 1947, Jan 1918
