Just watching the radar as this blizzard smacks Long Island and it's unusual to see this storm flow the wrong way across the Island, from East to West. Still haven't won Lotto, so still am nursing the Lacross WX station, and true to form, the aneometer froze at about 7 am this morning. It uses an enclosed impeller and it is very vulnerable to sleet, as well as leaf debris here. I liked it at first as it was more stealthier than a traditional aneometer, and stealth is critical to a Amateur Radio operator with a wife who's very critical!
Checking into the local Skywarn net here in Nassau County, which is outstanding and run by some highly skilled volunteers, and have been listening to the snow totals creep up every several hours as they take measurements throughout the area and then compile a report to NWS.
So far we're going from sleet to light wind blown snow, about 5.4 inches so far, and wind is really picking up.
Stay warm and safe any stuck in this mess...
