FYI... I didnt go on roof or take care of the ice in gutters and now I have water leaking in my walls and on the inside of my window.

I take full blame... fun stuff.. going out now to chip or throw salt on it.

This junky weather is really starting to get old. Seriously. The operation I run has barely enough time to get caught up from one storm when anther puts us behind again.

I am ready for it to get warm again.

Yeah, but the snow never has a chance to melt before another layer is deposited - by the time we get to March we'll all be living under a glacier.

Temp is 16 here. It has been right there since midnight. It doesn't look the the warm up is happening as fast as predicted. We have a good 3 or 4 inches already.

The rain vs. ice line is starting to enter the Sound right now from LI....I think at least the southernmost part of CT (like south of the Merritt/beginning of the Wilbur Cross and much of southeast CT) is eventually going to get plain rain for much of the day which will wash away at least some of the snow. Sorry for the rest of you......

Suprised this morning to see just an inch of snow and a trace of ice...Thats good about the ice part. And its always good when ice falls after snow.

The storm is moving 40mph so it should end much sooner then anticipated.

Well it is nice to be back in Connecticut…I had a chance to go to see family in Miami, so I couldn’t pass it up. You can’t beat Florida in winter, temps were perfect 77 – 78 F and plenty of sunshine. I keep hoping when I get back to the Tri-State area the crap weather will be over (lol).

As far as our current storm: Right now the warming seems to be doing quite nicely: At this hour the NWS reporting station at Salisbury, MD is reporting 51 F…at Atlantic City 48 F…and Pomona, NJ 46 F…so the warming is not far off from southern Connecticut. Right now New London is at 31 F…and my location along the Connecticut coast is at 31 F and rising 0.5 a degree every half hour. The NWS office just to our south (NWS Mount Holly) has dropped all winter weather advisories along the New Jersey coast – so this is a good sign. The strong south/southeast flow will continue to scour out the cold air along the East Coast/Atlantic lowlands as we move through the day. In fact, a bout of heavy rain (and just rain) will overspread most of Connecticut by late in the day, so this will really help to melt much of the snow cover. I love when rain and fog eats snow! It looks like only the far NW portion of CT will see a longer period of ice than the rest of the state.

Wed looks semi-mild too with highs in the lower 40’s.

62 days till winter ends!
