Christmas Holiday Snow Event


Recommended Posts

Have scooped the driveway 4 different times since Saturday. A Christmas miracle. Being a teacher and married to a teacher, what a great vacation so far spending it with the 2 kids

How much did you end up with for the entire holiday?

This snowfall was perfectly timed....even though its light it is just enough to make everything white. I'm hosting Christmas this evening and making dinner. Definitely puts me in the holiday mood! Fin

On my ridge back home from Christmas Eve Mass, I was struck by the beauty of the blanket of freshly fallen snow on top of the Christmas lights.  The cold temps and flurries in the air make it feel ver

Saturday-Sunday 5-6 inches depending on location in the county. The different waves yesterday, last night, and this morning were over 3 inches measured in my yard ( obviously not official) and am waiting for NWS Hastings to put out numbers later.

Awesome!  BTW, glad to see you back my friend.

'grats ovva there!

 

As expected, a late-game rally overnight til this morning netted another 1.3" bumping my total to 6.6"

 

Awesome Christmas gift by Ma Nature! It looks as white and fresh as I've ever seen it here in 9 yrs at my address! City finally plowed, but a coating fell since so everything's brightest of white like I remember in Traverse.

It was a neat Christmas Eve Snowstorm. Great timing.

I know all of Neb isn't buried by 2 ft of snow, but some out there were so quick to gripe @ Tom's positive outlooks and calling "winter cancel".

 

I'm still waiting to see anyone give him props..or at least admit they were a bit hasty

I was wrong earlier. KLNK recorded a trace today, so it'll only be 3 straight days.

I'm not going to congratulate Tom for being correct, because he wasn't.  We have not been getting snow the way or at the time Tom said.  When someone throws up as many outlooks as Tom does, they're gunna be off the mark more often than on.  What I will commend is his passion for weather.  It comes through here.  It's good to see.  I just make sure to take long range forecasting with a huge grain of salt as it rarely verifies.  Tom's enthusiasm is good to have around here, but it's not like the pattern looked promising over the last couple months even after Tom would tell us it's going to change.  When you say people will get hit over and over for months eventually you will be correct.

Although I am having a laugh at Snowlover who claimed we would be seeing 40's at the end of December.  There is a middle ground which I inhabit, it's called reality.
