Winter in Northwest Pennsylvania

My first blog post of the year was about the lack of snow in Northwest Pennsylvania on January 1st. It didn’t even feel like winter that day, with temperatures in the low 50s. About mid month Winter arrived, with a vengeance.

I took this picture around 9:30 am on January 16th. We had a couple snow storms earlier in the month, with no more than 6 inches lying on the ground at any one time. This picture shows how much snow was left from the last snow storm. Then came Winter Storm Izzy …
I took this picture the next morning, on January 17th. This picture shows how much snow we got from Winter Storm Izzy in a 24-hour time period.
Bob estimated there was 10-11 inches of snow on the ground.

After Izzy left, lake effect snows began. Snow continued to fall at least through January 18th, adding 2 or 3 more inches of snow on top of the 13-15 inches of snow left behind by Izzy.

The warning for Winter Storm Landon began at 1:00 am on Thursday, February 3rd, and lasted through 10:00 am this morning.

I took this picture on Wednesday (2/2) at 2:43 pm before Winter Storm Landon arrived.  The snow on the ground is what remains from our last major winter storm, Izzy, and lake effect snows. Note that the fire ring located behind the pavilion is visible.
I took this picture at 7:36 am this morning, while we were still under the winter storm warning for Winter Storm Landon. Note that the fire ring behind the pavilion is totally covered.

We got at least a foot of new snow from Winter Storm Landon. It is almost noon, and snow continues to fall! This is Winter in Northwest Pennsylvania.

    Oh My Goodness. I cannot imagine that much snow —continuing for about 2 weeks or so… Is this typical every year? We’ve had more snows (about 6) down here –but it wams up between the storms. Our biggest on was about 5 inches. That made me excited!!!

      This a typical Northwest PA winter. We have had several mild winters recently, though. I have heard people say we were overdue.

    So much snow! Looks pretty! Do you think you jinxed yourself with your Jan 1post about the lack of snow? 🙂 Stay warm!

      Haha maybe. Honestly, though, we have had mild winters recently. I guess we were overdue the snow. The snow seems to have started late too…iI don’t think we had any snow in November and very little in December.

        We had our first meaningful snow two days ago. I like it! Dan – not so much. It looks like you all got a ton!

    I love it! Happy for you! I could enjoy going out and making some snow angels or snowmen or throwing some snowballs in that lovely fluffy white fresh snow! And then I’d be done with it! LOL. I do love to look at it, but driving in it is something else. We spent quite a few years in the north and did our share of shoveling and scraping ice, etc., and now I am thankful to be here in sunny Florida, where it is supposed to reach 80 degrees today. Frankly, I’d prefer about 60 or 70, but it is what it is. Thank you for sharing this lovely scene with us! I love your pavilion and shed and fire ring area. Looks lovely.

    Wow, you are getting lots of snow there. The snow photos look pretty. I’ll will be happy if we do not have any more snow this winter. Take care, enjoy your weekend.
