We're still 48 hours away...don't get too excited...the track could change...we got burned last time...blah, blah, blah. GSD likes the sound of "Groundhog Day Blizzard 2011," and right now we're just going to get crazy and throw caution to the wind: we're calling for 6" to 9" of snow, and if the storm does what it's supposed to do, we'll have all day to get a jump on those early third quarter assignments or work on any research papers you might have due in a few weeks.
Here's some extra info from NOAA. Snow totals for the last ten years for Albany:
RECENT SEASONAL SNOWFALL FOR ALBANY NY: 2009-10: 45.4 INCHES 2008-09: 52.6 INCHES 2007-08: 61.1 INCHES 2006-07: 45.9 INCHES 2005-06: 30.2 INCHES 2004-05: 75.9 INCHES 2003-04: 65.1 INCHES 2002-03: 105.4 INCHES 2001-02: 47.4 INCHES 2000-01: 77.1 INCHES
As of this morning, we're at 47.2" for the season in Albany. With two more storms in the chamber, it looks like this winter could blow away snow totals all the way back to 2002-3.
