Well, this storm was barely a thought in anyone’s mind two days ago. 1-2″ of snowfall was all that was predicted in the weather models and, as time progressed, we saw the models start to agree on the storm system. Unfortunately, that agreement happened late last night at a time when most people had lost interest for the night. Now, the storm is beginning to move out to the east and the large amounts of snow and heavy rates are slowly tapering off.
Admittedly, I was skeptical of the forecast that I saw last night. Twenty inches of snow from a storm that was completely discounted only a few days ago? Most of us had seen this trap before. The latest models said “SNOW”, we got excited, and then nothing happened. This storm took the opposite approach and it has been so much fun! In the upcoming days, I will post an analysis of how we came to understand this storm system and why it caught us by surprise, but in the meantime, let’s just enjoy it.
I would love to see your snow totals and pictures! Feel free to add them on the google map linked below!
If you can avoid traveling, absolutely stay home because you don’t want to be caught up in the road closures and chaos currently unfolding in the picture below.
