OMG Snowstorm in SW Pa.

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
According to the news , tonight's snow fall might eclipse the most snow recieved since last Feb of 5.25 in. Grocery stores experiencing a heavy run on milk, eggs, bottled water and of course TP!

True to form the local weather is throwing in the possibility of sleet being interspersed with the snow. Anyway , its great to have winter back with the bonus of precip. I'll be throwing caustion to the wind tomorrow about 6:15 AM and am heading out to the local hill where hopefully the snow fall will be greater.

My usual partner will be absent having suffered a sprained ankle while power walking on the deck of a crusie ship last week. Fell down near the shuffle board court I am told !

I'm stoked.

Sounds like a winner!
Our forecast is for extended warm, clear and dry. With temps pulling into the 60s, skiing will be full on spring. Considering we are in a serious drought, this is not good news.

Spring skiing is better than no skiing. Get out there. Ski it while you can!

The huge storm forecast for today came as sleet and freezing rain in the Laurel Highlands. After skiing ice crusted at 7 Springs I got home, north of Pittsburgh, with 5" of snow and drizzle. Blue Knob on the eastern Allegheny front reported 6" over night with up to 9" through the day. I should have drove that extra hour. Blue Knob next week. I hope they get more open. Stembogen would be nice, Extrovert even better.

Yep, we got skunked again! Missed the snow line by 20-30 miles it looked like.

I am convinced that "winter warning forecasts" are bought and paid for by local supermarkets.

Our local news weather forecasts are sponsored by the local grocery chains that is a fact!

There is inverse correlation between the the amount of bread on the shelves and the strength of the hurricane or winter storm warnings.
