I think we overachieved with today's clipper. Had a solid 2" here. Don't think they were calling for quite that much from this 2nd Clipper. And while the heavier snows were forecasted south near the OH border, I'm certain 3+ was not the forecast for KDTW:

The global models really didn't handle this one good at all in the Day 5+ range.  Iirc, the Euro was most robust and hitting the U.P./Northwoods as was the GFS.  The Canadien was advertising the farthest south solution in the extended.  I find it that the Canadien model handles NW Flow systems the best in the medium/long range.

I’m still in that hole.  But I’ve already got 1/2” down. Weird.  Snowing moderately.

Winds are now starting to pick up. I have blowing snow currently, along w/ moderate snow falling. Already picked up an inch and still all day to go. Temps are in the teens. Gotta luv a daytime frigid snowstorm. This could easily be an overachiever like Jaster said in his statement above.

Only picked up a total of 1.4" today and 3.8" the other day which brings a combined total of 5.2".  Not bad actually when you take into consideration all the models were painting 5-8" swatch across N IL/S WI from the two clippers.  Was hoping to get at least 2"+ today but you can't be greedy in this sorta season.  I love how gorgeous the landscape looks now with a 4" base.  The only caveat with very high ratio snows is it compacts within hours.  Time to add more!  

I found it enjoyable shoveling the driveway and walkways the past couple days.  No heavy lifting and quite easy.  I'll try to post some pics later.

I'm now a little over 2." Still several more hours to go.  Will post pics probably tomorrow when the landscape is deeper in snow. I can easily see a 5-6" outta this, if not a jackpot 7" in spots.

A lot of blowing snow as winds are really gusty, making the snow fly all around. Temps continue to be in the teens and will remain pretty steady throughout this snowstorm.

I may be wrong since I haven't actually gone outside, but down/over here in Livonia it looks lackluster as far as new snow on the front parking lot here at work. Radar looks full of holes as well, so pencil me puzzled why DTX issued an even more robust totals map, and just an hour ago. SMH

Quick update: Just by eyeballing, it looks like so far I have received over 3" and counting. Its coming down moderately. I will go for measurement when it stops. It looks beautiful outside.

Nice score bud! Seen a lot of reports out of Macomb for this event and you're pretty much dead center to the range reported. For here on the SW side of the Metro, I had to revise my total from yesterday's over-achiever from 2" to 2.5" and it looks like we repeated today with 2.5". So a 5" total 1-2 punch Clipper hit matches that Euro map Tom posted before Sunday's storm arrived here. Remaining chilly if not downright cold the rest of the week so it's going to really look and feel like mid-winter around here. You could say "finally" since we lost what Snow cover resulted from NYD, while GR and places in WMI maintained at least a small snow OTG. 

Edit: Clippers (Nov 27&30) and now Jan 23&24 have been the only real $$ systems this winter. I knew blowing all the good SW stream wet monsters in autumn wouldn't be a good thing.

It was a good daytime snowfall amigo, which I thoroughly enjoyed. It actually continued snowing afterwards again once I had taken measurement, so picked up an half inch more, so this makes my total snowfall of 4.2" which is what I expected. Also, Shelby Twp, which is very near to me received 5.2." Overall, it was a 4-5" area wide, a little north from Detroit (say M-59-North where I am). Currently, otg, I have a decent snowpack (from all 3 clippers),  5.6" is my grand total. Not bad at all. My temps are going below zero next couple nites, so it definitely feels like January now, especially w/ this snowpack.

Need it to work in case we get a rainer next week.   I'll go back to being negative soon.  

31st day suffering with Covid and it's side/after effects so I'm in the rare mode of rooting on warmth when it should be the opposite, lol
