Surprised to still have 3-4” snowpack imby this evening...but after just vacuuming out about 20 gallons of water from my basement (which is currently getting renovated) i’m ready for all this rain to end. At least I know come spring, getting an excavator in here so I can reseal the basement’s seam which is clearly shot, is a top priority.

I know your basement pain. I live in a 40's era house with a river rock and sand basement foundation, hand turned and cured back in the day. The worst case scenario is frozen ground and water on top trying to find an exfil.





Still seeing freezing rain, with snow mixing in. Should be all snow soon. Down to 27F.

This system gave us no surprises: we had three eighths of an inch of rain, and the cold front was very sluggish. It was supposed to be down below 30 by midnight but is still in the mid-30s. The Great Lakes Cutter was its usual snow-eating self. Yawn.

Never rose above 32.2° at any point IMBY, SREFs had me hitting 45°. The 1" of snow/sleet that fell is still there as a frozen slush. Not only was the snowpack unharmed, we actually added to it. I don't consider this a "cutter" for these reasons.

30.6° and slowly falling under amazing, clear skies.

Snow totals IMBY are in the 10"-12" range, 1" of sleet and 0.4" of ice. Liquid precip for the event was 2.04" as of 7 AM. Still waiting on the official obs.



The roads are kind of plowed and accessible if you have four-wheel drive and a good set of Nokians or Blizzaks.



Lots of ice everywhere. Even with crampons, I've already taken a tumble.



Gratuitous loader inspired mega driveway bank. It will probably still be there in June.


Roof raking is going to be tough because the first 8" of snow and 1 " of sleet are sealed in by the ice and then covered with another 3"-4" of snow. It's going to be a long day.

Overall, quite an impressive storm.

Edit: Offical NWS Caribou observations - 11.7" snow. 1.2" sleet. 0.35" ice.

Looks like we might get another quick 1"-2" from squall lines coming through.

Wow, didn't realize anyone was getting slammed by this one. And is a crampon a medicated cramp relieving tampon? I'm gonna have to google this one.

If I didn't know any better, I'd think it was just another picture perfect Maine day (albeit with a touch of sub zero wind chill). It's 13F with sunny skies and a NW wind gusting to 20 mph.

Ha! Actually, they are metal spikes that you attach to your boots. Great for ice climbing, but a little less effective on snow that is on ice that is on snow and sleet that is on ice.

I see what they are. But seriously, when I started typing into the Search, i swear for some reason Chrissy Teagan' name popped up briefly for some reason.

I think Clampon would be a better name as that is kinda what you are trying to do by wearing them, but i digress

Haha. Nice.

We're currently in 3rd place in the NWS annual "contest" between cities in the snow belt office regions, but we might have picked up just enough to pull even with northern New York. No chance at catching northeastern PA this year.

Edit: I say that, but we accumulated 104" in 2008 from Jan 19th onwards. So it's not over until the fiddleheads sing.

This was from last week:

Crazy to see the ice that was on all the trees not melt away, but disappear due to sublimation. Still some left out there, but it is impressive how much "vaporized".

A bit too cold for ice melting here. I'm sure some is sublimating and some is getting knocked off by the wind, but still, plenty to see.

I kind of enjoy the sparkle.
