Okay, I wanted to know what this Winter Storm Evelyn was
when Winter Storm Xanto was going on at the same time.

Xanto is from the naming system at the
Atlanta, Georgia-based Weather Channel cable network.

Evelyn is from a Fox network,
also part of Sinclair Broadcast Group,
television station.
This one is Fox 11, WLUK (must be both radio and television).

A feature story at this Fox station's website discloses that
"the winter of 1987 - 1988" was when storm-naming
began at that particular station, with its meteorologist.
This station is in the state of Wisconsin, can't tell you which city.
perhaps the city is Green Bay, Wisconsin?

For 2018, the Fox/WLUK winter storm names are:
Abigail
Brooks
Clare
Dan
Evelyn
Forrest
Gabby
Hudson
Ivy
Juli

NOOOO! I was mistaken ...
there is now a Winter Storm Xanto, for reals.

It's forming over the mountains in the western US
and is going to move slowly,
so that its snowfall (rain in places)
will be heavy precipitation.

In fact it's going to be on top of Boston
the day before the Boston Marathon....

and Minnesota, which can't catch a break, is going to get snowed on.

The forecast map for this storm
shows this hideous red blob
which is where there could be TORNADOES.

Massachusetts had snow as well,
actually slush, fat flakes of slush very thick in the air,
and then -- as ChanteyLass says --
it got too warm for snow. So now it's wet
and we have some chilly clear days coming.

I guess I can understand the Weather Terrorist protocol here.
Official Spring is several weeks in,
so, no official naming of storms,
even if the storms are more wintry than anything else.
So, we end the named storms with ol' Wilbur,
and there is no Xanto, Yvonne, or Zoey.
Just more, erm, storms.

As a Swiss-German of my acquaintance says:

Im April thut das Wetter, was es will.

Yes, Winter Storm Wilbur is now a Thing.
And Minnesota can't catch a break, it is one snowstorm after another.
I wonder what that means for New Brunswick,
the home of our irreplaceable mudcatter Gnu.

In eastern Massachusetts
it mostly means above-freezing precip.
This very morning, however,
the air was alive with white flakes of slush,
as the storm tried to make snow but it was just THAT much above freezing
that serious snow didn't have a chance.
For a while, though, visibility was an issue,
as there was all this white stuff falling down and
it was difficult to see very far as you drove your car.

There is still stuff visibly falling
but it's easier to see through it now.

That's ironic.
Violet is a name better suited to spring, or summer,
than winter.
We are at least one week into spring,
past the vernal equinox,
and if we DO get a storm
it is likely not to be a winter storm but a spring one.

Near the beginning of this thread, checking out the names,
I echoed David Letterman the one time he hosted the Academy Awards:

Boston was let off far more lightly by Toby
than in previous recent winter storms.
No blizzard, no fierce winds, no reduced visibility.
Last time I looked out the window,
the snow was still coming down lightly.
Temperatures are above freezing,
the snow is very damp slushy stuff,
and we have more problems
from the existing re-frozen pre-existing snowfall
than from this most recent storm.

Of course they are talking about
another winter storm before Easter . . .

Well, I'm snowed in again. Still drifting with strong winds so not worth the bother of trying to dig out yet. I walked across the field and by the time I got back my footprints had been obliterated.
Drifts are up to 4 foot high across our track and stretch along it for tens of yards. I don't need to get out until Tuesday so I'm not worried yet.

State by State, Eliza/Senoufou,
each region includes in their budget
provisions for a veritable army of staff
-- Department of Public Works, or DPW --
to clear the roads and highways, not to speak of sidewalks in public places.

It is quite wonderful to watch all those trucks with salt and sand,

like the Providence Highway that follows the seacoast

Oh keberoxu, all that blooming snow! How depressing! We only had a week of it ('The Beast From The East') and we were climbing the walls. And you have blizzards too, Lord, I'd be terrified.
I feel quite ashamed at our feebleness here in UK, but everything grinds to a halt when it snows a few measly inches. How you all cope 'over there' I can't imagine.

Nothing to complain about, myself, but:
I overheard a conversation between a married couple. A grumpy one.

"...this only happens to US."
"I'll take care of it."
"We have a home."
"Yes. We have a home. With a big-ass tree on it." Marches off without her.   ooooh.

The snow at this point ... ought to be measured in hours. Not inches. Hours. I know that it's been snowing for over twelve hours, is it closer to eighteen hours? And most of the time, with the high winds and the intensity of the snowfall,
visibility could be measured by the merest fraction of a mile.

Rain here changed to snow at about 6 PM, and it's accumulating quickly. I hope the previous storm took down all the branches and uprooted all the trees that could knock down power lines and that power stays on. One of my friends and her whole neighborhood, tucked between a country club, Narragansett Bay, and an old Navy base, were without power for about 72 hours. Her town didn't open any emergency shelters! She used her gas oven to keep her house at a warm 90 degrees. (Wait until she gets that gas bill!) She showered and charged her phone at the home of a neighbor who has a generator. I know of someone else who was without power for about 96 hours! I was lucky: my power stayed on.

The snow is melting fast now, about 1/2 of the depth of the drifts gone. I did a lot of digging (all good exercise) and managed to get the 2 wheel drive car up the hill yesterday evening. Tarmac all the way to our track today.

Very pleased that when I revised the heating and water systems that I managed to eliminate all four water tanks from the loft. Still managed to have the outflow pipe from the mascerator in our en suite freeze but no damage to it as it is plastic, and this is with insulation on the inside of the roof space as well as on the loft floor.

Well, the people that Mudcatter Gnu calls the Weather Terrorists
are having a field day with this one.

For the northeastern US, the storm that has been named Quinn
is so threatening that the severe weather alerts
have been altered from Winter Storm Watches into Winter Storm Warnings.

As I post, Quinn is moving east of the Dakota states where it has been a blizzard.
The storm is going to grace the Snow Belt that covers the Great Lakes area, west to east, in familiar style. Detroit is going to get it. Then the state of Pennsylvania.

The big uncertainty is what Quinn will do when it arrives at the Atlantic Ocean, and where Quinn will do it. It's a classic "nor'easter" set-up, the forecasters agree, but where will it be snow and where will it be freezing rain (EEWWWW)?

None of Riley's monster high tides (there was a full moon),
but Quinn's combination of snow and wind
threatens more downed trees and power lines . . .

My son, daughter-in-law, and granddaughter traveled to India. They departed Friday night, or maybe it was Saturday morning after a delay of at least 2 hours at Boston's Logan Airport. At some point they were switched from Lufthansa to Qatar Airlines, which I guess meant a stopover in Qatar instead of Munich. Before they got off the plane in Qatar, there was an announcement that their flight to India was boarding. I know they spent some time in the airport in Qatar, so I guess they caught a later flight. I know they arrived safely in India but must have been exhausted. I don't know if the airport in India is close to their destination or if they will have to travel much farther from there.

Worst part was getting TO the airport: normally she would drive out to us, leave car here, and we would drive them to airport: none of that possible with both of our roads being snowed in.

Here in Rhode Island the forecast says the rain may become wet, heavy snow later tonight. I've raised the windshield wipers into the snow salute, just in case. My condo community rarely loses power and lights haven't flickered, but my flashlight is wound and in my pocket just in case. The sump pump in my cellar has turned on a few times, which it rarely does.

This morning I got an email from my penpal-since-childhood in Lincolnshire. Her area was hit with the snowstorm and many activities have been canceled, including a luncheon she helped organize for her Trefoil Guild. Also, some good friends returned from a trip to visit relatives in the South Pacific.
