Dang, we folks here in Essex County need to get some spotters. Not one report.

I was scheduled to go to spotter certification two years ago but had to cancel. I'll try again soon, I swear!

My goal is to get 8 inches, which means I do maximum customers but not have th extra work from anything more.

7.5 inch storm total. 19.6 for the season, a good start.

The short range models did well up here, the others get a D-.

Taking a break from shoveling it's not too easy to measure because of the snow drifts .it went from a dusting bto 3 feet I think we ended up with 10 inches

Nice pics yourself. I also have to dig out a pathway in the yard for the dogs. You are a good man helping out the seniors on your block. I am sure they appreciate that. I'm 65 but my neighbor is 88 but you'd never know it just by looking at him. he insists on jumping in so we help out each other.We're old school-with shovels.

Got a bit of a scare when we lost power. Thank God it was only a 30 second blip.Winds are really kicking now. Should be an interesting weekend.Everybody stay safe and warm.

Kudos to all the prognosticators on this site. You really know your stuff as you  have proven time and time again.
