WEATHERMAN: Nick Diller’s storm update

High temp Saturday was 59 at 12:04 a.m. and now at 8 a.m. it’s down to 27 degrees with gusting 25 mph winds.

Great Barrington — As of 7 a.m. the rain has changed over to a light snow that does not seem to be sticking to a very soggy wet ground and my snow-measuring board. Total rainfall came to 2.17 inches: 1.53 inches until midnight Friday (Jan. 12) and .64 inches from midnight to 7 a.m. Saturday (Jan.13). The rain combined with low-60 temps caused a very rapid snow melt of the 8-plus inches we had on the ground. Now it’s a pond in my back yard but so far nothing in the cellar.

I had checked at 11:55 p.m. Friday and total was 1.53″ with a high temp of 61 degrees, and our 8-inch snow pack was no more. Better check your pumps

I was going to BBQ chicken tonight but I guess I’ll use the cast iron skillet and oven roast instead and watch football and drink some of Kolsch instead. By the way neighbors, you are welcome to stop in for a pint if you wish.
