No idea how the scoring will go for this, I can see hits and misses all over the table ... in my case, I hit ABE and MDT with low amounts ... some others will like the big totals at ORH and PWM. I think BGM is getting a bit of a top up and BTV has snow still falling but otherwise the system is largely done now. -- Roger Smith

2nd time in recent memory the storm center / heavy snow axis was analyzed much farther east than progged.

Today/s late afternoon STP reports showed CAR ... BTV ... and BGM picking up another inch or so which had an noticeable effect on the top standings.
