Today [2January] we reported another 3.0 inches of new snow, 0.20 inches of precipitation.

Which gives us a total of 10 inches of snow on the ground.

The total volume of snow/ice on the ground melts down to measure 1.03 inches of precipitation.

Blizzard Warning
Statement as of 4:20 PM EST on January 02, 2010

... Blizzard Warning in effect until 1 PM EST Sunday...
... Winter Storm Warning is cancelled...

The National Weather Service in Caribou has issued a Blizzard
Warning... which is in effect until 1 PM EST Sunday. The Winter
Storm Warning has been cancelled.

Snow... heavy at times... will continue tonight. Total snowfall
amounts through Sunday morning will range from 10 to 18 inches
across the region. The snow could mix with rain at times later
tonight along the downeast coast and near the Canadian border...
possibly limiting accumulations there.

North winds will continue to increase through the evening hours...
reaching sustained speeds of 20 to 30 mph with gusts to 40 mph by
later this evening. Similar winds will continue tonight. This will
cause significant blowing and drifting snow with blizzard conditions at
times with very difficult and hazardous travel conditions expected
through Sunday morning.

Residents of the area along with Holiday travelers should keep a
close watch on this system as travel this evening through Sunday
morning will be nearly impossible and is not recommended. Check
for details on the rapidly evolving situation by going to
NOAA's National Weather Service Forecast Office—Caribou, Maine.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

A Blizzard Warning means severe winter weather conditions are
expected or occurring. This storm will have an extreme impact on
the warning area. Very strong winds of 20 to 30 mph with gusts to 40 mph
combined with heavy snow will create potentially deadly outdoor
conditions. Whiteouts... deep snow drifts and frostbite of exposed
skin can be expected.

Well down here in Penobscot we are having blowing, drifting and pretty heavy snow at present. The other store in Levant closed very early on today, I heard. We stayed open until 9, and had several passes by the owner's son with his plow truck to keep the pumps clear and open. We were steady busy, lots of gas, a bit of beer and some hot food. Several folks were VERY glad we were open for gas and some of the plow guys were back several times getting fuel.

I followed a plow pretty much home, roads were snowy but not really bad. Our plow guy had been here and K shoveled a bit but I still had knee high drift to wade to the front porch.

It seems to be a fairly fluffy (not wet/heavy) snow here, so I am hopeful that most trees and lines will stay up.

Light, fluffy and dry. I plowed our driveway, but it did little good. It keep falling and it blows around. An hour after plowing it is hard to tell if it was plowed.

We were going to take the kids out to dinner tonight, our youngest turned 20 today. We decided that it would be smarter to stay home, so we had steaks and a b'day cake at home.
