Atleast I see we (Maine) aren't the only New England states that get to enjoy this spring storm.

It's coming down pretty good here in Pennsylvania, too.

I live about 10 miles from the museum, it has been snowing for an hour and a half, we already have an inch and a half of snow.

It just started snowing here in Waterford. The time was 6:15. Only a dusting so far. Talk to you guys later.

Steve,
Get to the museum early for more plowing shots

Pretty funny Mike, the sad thing is it could be mostly sleet and rain at Sheepscot in the morning..yuck.
Just FYI the above radar loop will continue to update automatically. So anytime anyone wants to see what's going on just come to the forum.

Hey,  Sleet isn't any fun.  Got 4 inches of it in Northern Maryland today and now it's snowing on top of it.  It's kind of like driving in a slushy!

Nice example Stewart. I am gle to see that here in Maine, we are almost out of the storm. Talk to you guys later.

I had about 8-10" at 0700 this morning.  About that time it moved breiflly to sleet, than to solid rain.  Lots of rain, now have 6" or so of solid slush.  Very heavy very messy.  Not a good for plowing.  If it sets up, we won't get it off the tracks until mother nature decides to take it her self.

No worries about slush on the tracks.  Jason and I plowed this morning, but the snow wasn't very high.  Looks like it may all melt this week.

Glad to hear that you and Jason cleared the line. Is it possible to keep the snow banks cleaned out, just in case a person wants to use any of the bell crossings, such as Alna Center for example?
Did you and Jason plow out the sidings and yard tracks as well? Talk to you guys later.

I worked all day at our 7 1/2" track site. The weather was barely tolerable, 75* and sunny. Much sweat and dehydration.
Nothing to plow but our 90' tunnel still had snow in it from previous storms.
We may use it as a temporary meat locker.

We only plowed out the main line, didn't touch any of the sidings.  No ice problems on any of the crossings.

Oh. How much snow was total? Thanks James.
Talk to you guys later.

We might have gotten five or six inches.  Then the sleet, freezing rain, and rain came down, soaked in, and packed it down.  It's probably solid ice right now.

A BIG thanks to ACCUSteve for posting the radar loop.  It's good to see what the weather is doing at Sheepscot on any given day.  We can now check Forum messages and Weather on the same site.  Plus, the map shows from Northern Maryland up to Maine, my favorite travel zone.

I just thought that I would throw in an update on my trip back to Colorado last week.
I left Maine on Tuesday, the 16th and arrived home on Saturday the 20th. It was 74* and clear. Next morning we had 5" of snow. By this past Tuesday it was up to 80* and Thursday it hit 84* in downtown Denver. Such is the weather, whether you like it or not.
I all ready miss the WW&F. I must have a disease besides insanity.
Take care.
Ira

Well, I hope everyone is dug out in the NE. The Patriots pulled one out and the world is relieved.
The weather, here in Denver, today was a record setter. 78* in downtown Denver and 75* at the airport. Snow is predicted for Thursday.
Only in Colorado..............

Hey,
I heard a rumor you guys are getting some snow right now.
(Oh, lok...there's a light film of white over this part of CT!) Hmm..guess it's not a rumor after all!

Well,
By the looks of things right now, I will be going to school during my vacations, due to all the snow days we have had, and we might have snow until June. We are supposed to have another storm tomorrow, Saturday night into Sunday, another storm Tuesday night into Wednesday and Thursday. Not looking good. Will the snow ever stop? LOL

So far, to date, here in Waterford this year I have measured 85 inches of snow for this winter. Makes me tired just thinking of all the white stuff.
