That used to be expected about where you are, even down into Connecticut, only 40 or so years ago before the weather started changing.

I am glad weather moves from west to east up here.
The way you have it in your schematic isn't the same as how you have it wired up!

Its hard to imagine, sitting in front of a fan in the African summer !

I do remember it from 40 years ago in the UK though,

  I recall its only pretty the first morning :-)

Yes, had snow showers last night in my part of the UK. Half an inch maybe? Absolute chaos this morning getting to work. Get to the town where I work and everything is fine!

It's a shame you can't cheap overnight a few cubic meters to pile behind that fan, eh?

AWOL

We haven't got any yet but we have got an amber snow warning.
I think that means "don't eat amber snow"

Maybe you should change your hobby to snow fencing.

You should tell that to hairy guy on my avatar, every snowy day is a day filled with joy for him, (even if it has the wrong color).

It's great to see him having fun at his old age :)

30 inches, 2 minutes - about a mile from your fencing studio, Crossroads....
When the testing is complete there will be... cake.

We sure didn't see that, about 1.5 mile NE of the club.
We're near the top of 555 foot hill (per GPS), wonder if that makes a difference?
Only knee deep for us, not waist deep.
Except for the end of the driveway, from the plows.  My mailbox is just a door in a 5 foot high pile right now.

That would be like regular fencing, but outside? Might be a little hard keeping the electronics dry.
Maybe go wireless, send touch detections to the scoring machine.
