Snowing like crazy in Hopewell Junction (just east of Poughkeepsie), but no accumulation yet. Just south and east of there, all sleet/freezing rain.

I hope the switch over to NCP that they're predicting for around here never happens! I'm thinking of going up to Sundown tonight after work.

Snowing like a monkey here in Boston. Nothing's sticking yet, though. Fingers are crossed to NH.

Mmmm, fresh snow...

13:55 - Snow came through and stopped. You'd never know it snowed here. Looking at the RADAR loop on Intellicast

Shows the main body of the storm over Lake Erie and moving East fast.
I love the Intellicast radars. I think they are slightly outdated by perhaps 30-60 minutes, but they usually do a good job of representing the rain/snow lines. Let's hope this line stays positioned exactly how it is now...

Basically nothing accumualated here from today's snow, but it looks like 4-8" before the changeover tonight which my foolish optimism tells me isn't going to happen... ;)

Snow stopped here (N of Beantown) mid PM. It sounds (for now) that SoVt, Bizerkshires, Mondadnock Reg. into ME would get the most.

Figures, I'm at work tomorrow and I trashed a (#4) front Hub in my 4x4 PU and Friday is the one day I can get it squared away.. Maybe Friday night at Blue Hills?

I will be somewhere in the Berkshires Friday for sure. Started snowing again here around 8 PM and it's pretty moderate.

Round 1 of the storm put 2 inches of snow on my driveway! Nothing stuck in Hartford, bust as I got to my house I saw the surprise. It was a wet snow and I shoveled it.

I can not wait until Thursday morning and my commute to work!

Just finished the first round of snowblowing. A solid 5" so far and it's still coming down moderately. Please no changeover (Fingers crossed). I'd be interested to hear what the Berkshire or Albany snow totals are as this may determine whether I ski Jiminy, Catamount, Butternut or Sundown tomorrow.

Blew 7" out of my driveway in Hopewell Junction this AM before going to work, the changeover had just started. From what I can tell, Hunter will get about the same but they are calling for a changeover to freezing rain with 1/4" of ice expected.

Well, at least it will make for the start of a bomber base in the woods!
