Aftermath

Snowpocalypse is over! While snow amounts were disappointing in places, some areas got a fair share. Looks like the storm did track a little further north than predicted, and this resulting in a dry slot making its way into southern counties. Some freezing rain was also reported in those areas.

Up here in Mount Pleasant, Michigan things are white. Precipitation stayed flaky the whole time, and the university closed for Wednesday. Woke up that morning and set out to record the event. I upset when my memory card gave out for my T2i. My first session was probably the best mood wise as snow was still coming down. Went inside to load them on the computer and the images were corrupt. Formatted and tried again but this time the card locked my whole computer up. Lucky a good friend let me borrow a card to use!

The pictures I did upload can be found on my flickr page, or on the sidebar to the right.

The Grand Rapids NWS office has a terrific PDF file that explains the storm track and resulting accumulations. Highly recommended for a look!

Close call on Saturday as a clipper phases out and loses strength to our north, next chance of snow is some light to moderate accumulation from a low pressure system Monday.
