Hey, triple7, that looks like a typical METAR for 75% of the days between November and March up here in Syracuse.
It's almost guaranteed to snow 5 out of every 7 days. May only accumulate an inch or two a day, but enough to keep most people grounded.

Of course, I say this, and today it was nearly clear, unlimited, calm winds. First day like that in a while. Of course, temp was -25, but you take what you can get.

Hopefully I won't have to walk the 1/4 mile to work!
Good thing is...most of my coworkers have a much longer commute, so hopefully I can work from home!

I have a lesson tomorrow night, but it's only sim time so I should be good assuming my instructor can make it in.

Edited to add: visibility is no more than 1/2 mile out of my living room window at 100' agl in the Inner Harbor in Baltimore...

Dulles has a 200 foot ceiling and 0.1 mile visibility. So, who wants to go flying tonight?



Edited to add:

Make that a 100 foot ceiling! Holy cow!

It's kind of amazing how everything around us was closed, but yet ,we,the students of Appalachian State University got up and went to class. My roommate and I were like "Our siblings get the day off and we have to go to class". Oh well
. Actually it wasn't that bad, it snows alot up here so the campus is very well prepared for it. I love snow as well, it makes the area look so much nicer in my opinion!

I'm out here in DC for work right now and got the day off work. And it looks like at least one appointment is cancelled tomorrow. Sat around with one of my buddies and drank beer and got paid for it. Ahhhh, the life.

Feel a little pain for those of us who had to drag our butts to work in the snow this morning and do it again in the freezing drizzle tonight!

Not fun, my friend. And I have to do it with freezing drizzle tomorrow morning and tomorrow night!

The names Cleatus and Zeke come to mind when I hear Appalachian State University.

Hey - don't knock something you know nothing about, bro.

ASU has one of the finest math, science and medicine departments in the Southeast.

I could cast a few stones based on your photo, but I won't because I don't know a thing about you - and that would be wrong, wouldn't it?

Kind of crawls under my skin when folks tag ignorant labels on things base on its geographical region.

Sometimes, I think it's funny. This time I didn't.

Carry on.
