Jim, welcome to your everyday average winter storm. That one was a little different in that it went on for a day and dumped a lot of snow. It was an almost pleasant storm with rather warm temps. If I remember it went up to around zero that day. Warm air holds more moisture, hence the large amount of snow.
The other big thing about that one was it hit during the day. It went to condition one and they had to send SAR out to the outlying buildings to escort us home. We had about ten people holed up in my building and we roped ourselves up for the 200 yard trip to town. Visibility was so low, the people at the back couldn’t see the the people at the front of the rope.
I spent some time with sonartech, I enjoyed his company. I’m glad he posted his movie.
