  3. Snow took a little break this morning but is back snowing hard again. Furnace vents were covered this morning so those needed dug out before CO poisoning was an issue. Drifts well over 3 feet in spots. Churches, taverns, stores, darn near everything is closed. It's been a long time since i've seen snow like this. We might eclipse Dec-Feb snow totals in a weekend.

  4. A few more pics during cleanup. Took me over an hour to clear the driveway even with the snowblower. It’s already covered again. Some businesses decided to either stay closed or open late today. Winnipeg Jets got diverted to Duluth yesterday, turned around and flew back to Winnipeg. Their flight this morning was scheduled to depart at 9am for tonight’s game against the Wild. Talk about home ice advantage.

  5. Shawano county in NE WI reporting 24.1 inches of snow since Friday night. Another 6-8+ likely there today. Highest total I’ve seen so far. Green Bay was over 16 as of 7 AM. Appleton 14+

  7. 3” since 3pm. 18”+ OTG and still ripping. Forcing shows no real signs of letting go. Gonna make a run at 20” I think. The wind has blown everything around so tough to measure.

  8. Lost in the snowfall stats is the fact that the TC has been below 32F since Friday evening....in mid-April. Also set a record low maximum today of 27F. Records back to 1872.

  10. Mid-April afternoon in Kansas City: https://www.wrh.noaa.gov/mesowest/getobext.php?wfo=pqr&sid=kmci&num=25&raw=0&banner=off If they hang on to their 30 degree maximum, it will blow away the late season benchmark (a high of 36 on 4/20/1918). Latest sub-freezing max on the books is 4/9/1973. Incidentally, Kansas City just saw their latest maximum in the 30's on record (39 on 5/3/2013) during that historic May snowstorm on the plains. I keep running into 2013 numbers while researching the cold weather in the plains & Midwest lately (and the European cold in early March,

  11. You’re dumber than a doornail. I referenced them as tropical forcing analogs, not as analogs for local PNW weather conditions. Do you understand the difference? If not, then I’d recommend getting a lobotomy.

  12. Shawnigan averages right around 50” annually. I believe the extreme SE corner of Victoria is in the 20-24” range annually. Though I don’t know a good long term station off the top of my head. Butchart garden area is likely in the 36-40” range I would guess. A lot of the rocky hillsides have patches of Garry oak ecosystems which are generally grasslands and Garry oak trees, like what you see in his pictures. Very different looking than the thick Douglas fire forests that dominate most of southern Vancouver Island. There are areas that look very similar to his yard, about as far north as

  14. Wow! Snowshoe, that's pretty incredible! I'm enjoying reading everyone's posts. What a storm! Pretty much halfway through an April for the record books.

  16. Took several random measurements and came up with over 14” here so far. Still snowing as the bands rotate through today. Expecting another 2-5” and now under a WWA. We only needed 13.6” to set the record for largest April snowstorm. I think MSP will top that easily. The airport still only has 2 runways open as of this morning. The fact that this storm happened in mid-April makes this one of the most impressive storms I’ve ever witnessed. I see the Tues/Wes system is still looking like it could lay down another few inches. Absolutely crazy.

  17. It's conceivable, that some spots in N WI/U.P. of MI will see up to 30" of snow from this record shattering monster of a storm. I can't believe its snowing heavily with temps in the upper 10's in parts of N WI and the U.P. I'm speechless. @ Money, how much do you have so far?

  18. Lost cell service and wireless yesterday. I think only 4-5 inches Here couple more today. The first 2 inches probably had an inch of qpf. Straight sleet and then graupel. It's now cement. The wind was something. Congrats to the big winners. Awesome stuff

  21. Huron Mnts poster.. "It’s bad here. A foot or just a bit more since 8 this morning. Winds are gusting between 30-35 mph consistently. 10-15” more by tomorrow afternoon, with a few more inches tomorrow night likely. The deepest depth I’ve ever seen at my house is 52”. Seriously may make a run for that! This is crazy even for up here just two weeks shy of May!" Just recently he was complaining at how long winter's been. Much more interesting when you're getting rocked by a real storm

  23. Pardon my puny post.. Woke up to 0.25" of ice on elevated surf's took me about 6 pots full of hot water to de-ice my car enough to get going. Ofc all the trees were coated as well. Fortunately, only limbs to 2" came down around my place. Other places in town I saw limbs to 8+ dia across streets. Minor flooding in the b-ment means I may have dodge both bullets by splitting the rounds into the two different p-types Also had to go out and west of Kzoo ran into a heavy downpour of sleet and it totally iced over the roads for about an hour before warming temps thawed it.

  24. The winters that occurred during the 3 most recent solar mins: 2010-11, 2009-10, 2008-09, 1996-97, 1995-96, 1985-86, and 1984-85. The common theme has been major NH blocking.

  27. If only we could pull off a major SSW during the retracted phase of the IPWP cycle, you guys would be the ones in the center of the action. The last time it happened was in the winter 1978/79. Ages ago, and that wasn’t a very powerful event. The last time it happened during a solar minimum that overlapped with said IPWP retraction..probably the late 19th/early 20th century. I’m betting it was January 1899, lol. Only half joking, as these big league SSW events aren’t very common to begin with. The IPWP is retracting now, though (following the typical response time-lag to solar forcing on th

  28. I was just going to say. Looks like the energy is being shunted back to the NW out of Wisconsin. It’s basically snowing as hard now as it has the entire storm.

  29. If it happens enough years in a row we will just have to start calling it average. The 1991-2020 means are going to be shocking.

  34. Eh. All in all this isn't really different from anything that has happened this season. The only thing that sets this apart is it's mid-April. This is just adding yet another 1-3" snowfall to the 20 billion we've had this year. If this were to happen in January nobody would bat an eye. Really though. 2" of powdery snow on April 14 is impressive.

  36. Coming down fairly hard once again here. I'm fixing to go to bed. I just looked out the window savoring it as I realized this will probably be my last time seeing snow falling till next Fall. Most people may want Spring, but it's hard to deny that falling snow is beautiful. 25.2*F. I also really wish my power would stop flickering. It's been doing that since 7:30 and it's driving me up the wall. The electricity is about as decisive as my ex.

  40. First winter storm of January: One county East of me gets 5". That one blizzard in January: One county North of me gets 6-8", two counties gets a foot. First storm in February: One county South of me gets 6". Easter: Still within my county but 10 miles South gets 7". Now: One county West of me is set to sit under a defo band for hours. All the above for us (besides the last one obviously) resulted in 1-3" for my place. Highest storm total was 5" from Xmas Eve, which I wasn't even here for. Ffs.

  41. Going down to 38* tonight, damp, cold, windy. Nearly froze me arse off going to the store today. High of 86* by Thursday. That should be sufficient to kill half of us off. Really, this winter has been seriously weird here this year. I don't think I have been this chilled in a Texas winter. Windy, just a misery.

  42. Yeah, life's too short to get all worked up in to a lather. A hundred years from now, it'll be the Conservatives on a Global Warming rant. Stick around long enough and everything returns with a twist. I've decided to sit back and try to enjoy the show......and yes, that's dark humor.

  43. King of Sweden has called for a ban on baths to help save the environment http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-3329759/King-Sweden-calls-ban-BATHS-admits-ashamed-run-one.html Right. Someone needs to tell the ol' poop just how much it takes to fuel his eco-friendly car with electricity!! If he wants to save the environment, he should have contributed more to society by working, and not waving and smiling. Yes, Sweden, land of a slightly smellier royal family.
