Yeah, I got into HVAC work. It’s harder but pays better. Fred meyers isn’t really where you want to have a career from personal experience. 

Woah you're working for a rival now. Or...are you working...with me?

Tell your guy to post the video… we are all waiting!

He has been trying to upload that video for 7 hours now.  We might have to wait for the internet to be upgraded in his neighborhood before we see it.

Mid to Late February. It’s coming this time.  Feels right to me. 

Hopefully we do manage something in the second half of February but this winter was still a good one IMO even if it doesn’t happen.

My kids, dogs, and myself would be just fine with a 2021 Valentines Day weekend redux.

What was the final snow total in the area you were at? Or did it all blow away? Must have been some big drifts somewhere. 

Where I was, around 14”. The extreme wind and spray kept accumulation to a minimum until ~ 2pm, when the wind switched to offshore and accumulation began in earnest.

That 14” fell in ~ 5hrs right at the end of the storm. Really wild stuff.

Also want to say, this is an exceptionally sturdy building. Very well-built. The amount of abuse it can take is mind blowing. Mother Nature consistently hammers away at it, and it requires heavy maintenance, but it’s rock solid. 

In my conversation with the staff/maintenance crew, this kind of thing is actually relatively common in the cold season. Apparently this wasn’t even the worst storm they’ve seen this winter. :lol: A storm in November shattered all those ocean facing windows, this one didn’t. These storms are just a part of life for them.

I thought nor’easters could be violent down here in Maryland, and they can, but now I understand why they’re so hyped up there in New England. These things are f**king vicious. The combo of heavy snow, hurricane force winds, and frigid temperatures right at sea level is more analogous to what you’d experience in the Bering Sea or Anchorage, Alaska. If anything the snow is heavier with these storms given frontogenic dynamics associated with them.

Video, part-1.

First 10 mins: Starts slow. Rain/snow mix (gradually) transitioning to all snow. Gusts 60-65mph. Can hear the wind wailing through the power lines at times.

14-15mins: Intensity increases, 70mph gusts start ~ 15mins. Car is rocking really good despite the hotel building offering substantial protection from the wind. Still minimal accumulation.

22mins: Had to retreat inside, as conditions became unsafe and the “storm surge” began to engulf the building.

26mins: Hurricane force gusts, surge increasing.

32mins: VERY violent, gusts > 80mph. Window shatters 33:20.

34mins: Ocean hammers the building, flooding the basement and cracking 2 more windows.

36mins: About 1hr later, venture outside again as winds calm a bit (“a bit” being relative, still gusting 70+mph).

Snow accumulation = minimal thru this vid. The wind was simply too strong. Part-2 will have the rapid accumulation and whiteout conditions that happened at the end.

I know it’s a long video, but would recommend watching whole thing for best experience of storm evolution, which was quite dynamic.

 

Wow. What a life experience this had to be. It sure ramped up pretty fast. So intense. Nice job capturing it all. It's a good thing they had the strobe light working it looks like a great nice for some disco.

Oh, yeah when I arrived there was live music playing, everyone was drinking and having a great time without a care in the world. It’s an awesome place.

But next time I blizzard chase, I’m staying several miles inland. I underestimated the extent to which the wind would limit accumulations (and trigger a storm surge + coat everything with a thick layer of ice from spray..including my car). Major headache.

Seconding the fabulous sunset tonight! This is from Skyway looking NE up Lake Washington, towards Mercer Island and Bellevue at about 900 ft. I've never caught a rainbow with the drone before, so yay for that first. Some fun looking virga too! 

 

But need some snow.

Foxboro would have been a nice setup

New England.  The Best.  Already planning my move back.  Will probably go more coastal this time.  Maine maybe.  still love NH though, and Portsmouth is a nice town too.
