    February 19-21 Winter Storm

    Peeked out the window at 4:15 to nothing happening in Findlay. Woke up at 7 to 2 quick-hitting inches. Just enough at the wrong time to delay and shut down schools for the kids and my teacher wife for what seems like the zillionth time in the past month.

    Some smaller limbs are down in the Findlay area, but nothing major. My birch trees lost quite a few small limbs but that’s not surprising...those trees are the bane of my existence. I swear every time a butterfly farts we lose branches in those things! I get what you’re saying about large branches crashing down. Was in a terrible ice storm in the late 2000s when I lived in Marysville. About an inch of ice in that one. Electric went out late that night, transformers flashing and that eerie sound of gigantic branches breaking and then crashing through the ice encrusted snow was terrifying. Sounds like a war going on when that starts happening. Even more so when electric is out in the middle of the night and there are no other typical white noises insulating outdoor sounds. Hopefully folks can avoid that kind of mess!

    Still 32 degrees with 0.25” rainfall according to my backyard weather station about 3 miles NW of Findlay. Temps have been much more stubborn to move here than forecasted. WWA was extended from midnight to 4 a.m. to 7 a.m. Although now technically “expired”, that slow moving temp gonna keep it slick around here for a bit longer. Just glad I’m not about 40 miles north of here where Toledo is still icing.

    2.25" in Findlay. Enough to keep the schools shut down and the wife and kids home again.

    Here’s what Toledo mets are calling for at this point. Seems about right. This would probably be enough, with the timing and cold, to keep the wife and kids at home from school for the third straight day to end the week.

    January 20 - February 1 Arctic Cold

    Officially a 1-degree high here at 12:06 a.m. according to my weather station. Currently -8 with -33 wind chill. Maybe the high will stay below zero tomorrow. While “official” records don’t indicate it, I distinctly recall having a -51 wind chill during the polar vortex blast in early January 2014 the day after an 8” snowfall. I even took a screenshot of it for posterity, which has since disappeared however. I recall ice forming on the inside of the garage door and inside of the garage access door as well. Certainly had a “Day After Tomorrow” feel to it, like the ice was slowly creeping in on us. Not sure if we are going to get that or not this time...but it seems that the fresh, deep snow cover made a big difference that day.

    A light and fluffy 1.5” shoveled out of the drive this morning. Had a surprise inch yesterday morning as well. Too bad the rain will eat away at it before the deep freeze settles in.

    Weather station says it dipped down to -11 IMBY this morning.

    I’m gonna say we ended up somewhere in the neighborhood of 7.5 - 8” here just a tick NW of Findlay. So hard to tell...pretty much sampled the whole yard to try to get an average. Drifts about 18”. We ran out of degrees this morning. Was Zero according to the weather station when I went out to clear the driveway. Got that half foot I was looking for...let’s double it next time!

    I’m guessing that’s about what I have on the ground here. Had ~6.5” at dinner time last night before the deform band hit and kept rolling through midnight. Will share when I get out there to move some snow later this morning.

    According to relatives, a “blizzard” must always be referenced with the number 78; and a host of other cliches (sarcasm). Honestly though, my grandfather had to tie a rope to get from his house to his three barns and back to feed his animals during that one. Said you couldn’t see your hand in front of your face and would’ve got lost without it. Sustained hurricane-strength winds in a snowstorm will do that. There’s probably a reason 1978 will always be the measuring stick in this region Nontheless, this has been a pretty nice show.

    I believe so. Has appeared to “backbuild “ (if that’s what you want to call it) over us in Findlay the last few radar frames. I thought for sure it would have moved out by now. I’ll gladly let it stick around a bit longer if that’s what it wants!

    Looks like things will be wrapping up by midnight here in Findlay (barring any unforeseen pivoting). Not without a howl from the wind while dumping whatever’s left though!Looking forward to seeing what Mother Nature left for us in the morning. 42E35833-F630-429C-A213-825EC805099B.MOV
