    Your YTD snow totals Winter 2017-18

    Very satisfied with winters here in the Northern Poconos. We average around 70-80” at my elevation of 1800’. On a good year we break 90”. The nice part is I’m far enough from the coastal plain to avoid the coastal taint of mix bags of precipt but still close enough to benefit from “most” Nor’easters except for the occasional sharp cut-off like this current storm. Coastal huggers is our bread & butter. When NJ/NYC rains or sleets we clean house. Obviously at this elevation our temps average a good 8-10 degrees colder than NJ/NYC which makes a world of difference in overrunning events with marginal cold air. Plus it really helps to maintain our snow base/white ground. Most years we keep a white ground 70% of the time from November-March. We also get quite a bit of small 1-2” events from LES streamers, i stopped logging them down for my totals because it’s just too many and a nursance to record. The winter scenery up here by Lake Wallenpaupack is breathtaking. Been living here for 6 years now and I still catch myself stopping just to absorbs the beauty during winter months. Almost so beautiful it’s make you wanna puke! Lol. First year I moved out here I kept my job in Parsippany, NJ and made that 80 mile trip everyday. The change in scenery from the time I left my house till I got to Parsippany was like day & night. Went from a winter wonderland to bare concrete and pavement in a 1.5 hour drive. FYI: Little unknown fact - The classic holiday song “Winter Wonderland” was written by the author who grew up up here in our little hamlet of Honesdale. The scenery outside his bedroom window inspired him to write that song. Tells you how beautiful it’s up here ?
  3. Would it be too much to ask for everyone that is reporting OBS to at least state your location so the rest have a clue where the hell you are! Lol

    I NEVER cancel winter up here in the Northern Poconos at 1800’ elevation until mid-April.

    CMC as the only outlier showing a northern turn now starting to trend south to the other consensus could be the final nail in this coffin for folks further north. Still some time left but that time is running out. 100 points for stating the obvious ?

    March 20-22 Winter Storm Threat Part I

    Of course not. Has to be taken into consideration. There have been other times where the outlier has scored the coup on the rest of the consensus. Is it likely? Probably not. Law averages against it. Have to go with the consensus at this point until we see other guidance at least making some sort of corrections to it. There are slight hints that those corrections “might” be forthcoming.

    The irony of suppression in March never escapes me

    I warned people who were all giddy with glee when we had Spring in February. Now it looks like we’ll get February in Spring

    Youre a good sport, I was just teasing. I grew up in Newark. NJ so I know that NYC climo very well. I do miss those all-out blizzards though on the coast. Very rarely we get blizzard warnings up here since we’re usually too far away for the sustained intense winds.

    We received just over 40” at my elevation in the Poconos from those three storms combineed. I’ll be more than happy to send you 6” of those so you can hit an even 10” ?
