Snowstorm - Dec 19, 2008

Another Winter Storm Warning was all up ons. As the storm moved through I documented it's progress over OSNW3. During the early morning of Dec 19, a snow less hole opened up in the storm directly over Oshkosh, which I believe kept my totals on the lower side.

Secondary Snowboard
I put out a secondary "unofficial" snowboard to capture another set of snowfall data. With the wind and blowing snow I wanted to verify what was taking place between the garages over at OSNW3 was happening elsewhere on the property. Four measurements were taken after the storm from the secondary snowboard (4.4, 4.4, 3.8, 3.2) for an average of 3.95". My official report to the NWS and CoCoRaHS was 3.9" total for the storm (individual observations above). I believe some sort of verification was achieved...
