Long range models seem to show the 20th-21st as the only real chance for any more snow this month, and it looks like rain....maybe the most northern and hilliest parts of the state see some snow. Amazing change from what it's been.....and it's trending "warmer" rather than "colder" than predicted....they were predicting "only" around 40 on the coast today and we got lots of mid 40s out there now....even Hartford area is close to 40.

I already deleted these, but just saw you added that it was a drift. That "drift" is the whole freaking backyard. Editing to say the yard slopes, which I already said once, it's not flat. That's probably why you think it's a "drift".

Why don't you get out of your coastline bubble and head north to see some real snowfall totals.

LMFAO... Well that should say it all... deleting pictures. How about new ones to prove it? Or should I tresspass onto someones property with a shovel ? I was in Litchfield county(New Milford) this weekend for business(no shovel).. I always tell everyone they need to learn where to measure to get actual accumulations. Its ok, you'll see grass end of this weekend in front of where that ruler was which showed 9 inches..

Like I said, unless you are in northern tier of CT you have less than 18 inches. Lower than middle tier less than 14. If you're claiming to have 24-30 inches you are close to the MA border then.

We have well over 2 feet on the ground and drifts still high enough for me to get on the roof without a ladder. The "edge" of our sidewalk (about 50 feet long) is consistently about 30" high, and there is not snow piled up. The blower tossed it 15 feet away.

I won't waste my time posting pics as they seemed to get ignored or explained away by some screenshot.

We're less than a mile from the sound and still have at least a foot on the ground, so I'm not sure what Cambium is talking about.

Here's a perfect example... and my last explaination.... This was taken 5 minutes ago.. Notice the measurement at 18". The entire yard is a drift! Dont let the slope of the snow fool you because the ground is like that also, so 70% of the yard has 18"... We are all misunderstanding the meaning of "actual" snowfall amount. Drifts and mounds do not count. Believe me, I understand what you all are saying but I'm not talking about how much snow is in each individuals backyards, I'm talking about actual measureable snowfall total.

Hopefully this will help you understand that.





Close up..






And here's the other side where snow fell flatter and no drifts effected accumulation... 9" most of yard.. The two pictures are 75 feet away from eachother.
