    Killington, VT 7'' off Mountain. Should be a couple extra inches on the hill. Should be good snowshoeing tonight. Can't wait to get out of work.

    Let it snow.

    -SGSN???

    Light fall of snow grains and snow flakes...snow grains being the dominant precipitation type at the time of observation!

    Had a peak gust of 49mph (NW) here on the coast of NJ this afternoon, but bone dry - no snow, no rain, nothing...

    Further translation:

    031847Z = 1847 zulu on the 3rd = 1:47 pm Eastern time

    14017KT = 17 knot winds at 140 degrees = 20 miles per hour from the south east

    1/16sm = Horizontal visibility of 1/16 of a statute mile (that's the kind we use) = 100 meters/330 feet

    -SGSN = Light snow grains and snow = Sounds nutritious

    BLSN = Blowing Snow = Exhausted interns

    M11/M11 = -11C Temp and -11C Dewpoint = +12.2 F, 100% RH
