  1. I'm still having good luck with deliveries thru instacart but it seems to vary greatly when you log on. Last night I checked and next opening was 13 days away...this morning, same store with openings now this week. I'd suggest check back often.
  2. Had to go out yesterday to food shop with my wife, mostly for my in laws who live downstairs...Went to asian market first and then to Costco...Was crowded in Costco but manageable....Got everything we needed except?...You guessed it.
  3. I just turned 60 on Saturday...I started buying weather equipment when I was around 10 and have been keeping records from my backyard since. How and why I got hooked, I don't know...Mom and dad weren't into it. My enthusiasm will never wane and hopefully I'll be hobbling outside when I'm 100 to measure the snow.
  4. Also the last two February's have been my warmest on record past 40 years.
  5. Haven't seen much mentioned about another very wet year for some local stations..For the 2nd year in a row my SI station exceeded the 60" threshold with a 62.26" total...Had 69.55" in 2018. 2019 ended with a Dec record of 8.18". Precipitation records extend back here to 1981.
  6. I know some of you with the "If it ain't gonna snow, it might as well be warm" mantra.... Mine is "If at ain't gonna snow, it might as well be 10 below" ...rymes as well.
  7. That's what I have also ( give or take a tenth)... Just about my average for December.
  8. Yes starting the day after Christmas, 14 consecutive days below freezing at my station, 7 days at 10° or lower, 6 days with high Temps in teens.
  9. I think that's just it's usual messed up thermals...If you look at its sim radar, you'll see one frame with a triangle of rain for those areas when all around is snow...it doesn't work that way.
  10. Yeah just been amazingly wet month after month for over a year and a half now... I've been recording 70"+ precip amounts over the preceding 12 month period.
  11. Had 1.30" for the day...7.43" for the month...3 straight months with over 7" of rain and 39.70" for the year, about 10" above normal. Just an incredible wet pattern for a year and a half now.
  12. Media lol...It appears a lot of what you see like in this video, is hail floating on top of the flood waters that accompanied the storm...also the "Five feet of hail falls" headlines, is most likely in isolated spots where it was piled up by floodwaters...They make it seem like the whole city was covered in five feet of hail.
  13. Depends on where you live exactly....don't go by central parks temps unless you live in a similar urban area...Pretty easy to still experience temps in the 20's in early April.
  14. 75 here...not unusual for these early warm days to exceed expectations.
