    !rolling Where is your antenna? If you have a broom with a long enough handle that should help.

    EDIT: Whoa, you guys getting snow, awesome treat I'm sure. A snowday for you guys, eh?!

    I'll try the garden hose the broom didn't seem to work. This is a miracle for New Orleans. I haven't seen snow like this since the late 80's. Glad I live in the Sunbelt. Thank you to the snow birds.:)

    If you have a hose that works, just hit it with some water or if in a reachable area throw some warm to hot warm on the dish.

    Snowstorm?! It's not even sticking to the pavement! Where I live--the lake effect snowbelt south of Buffalo on Lake Erie--we call that...foreplay! :lol:

    The hose didn't work. It is still snowing. I guess that can block a signal like rain right? I no longer like snow.:grin:

    How much snow did you get? Around here it usually takes something like 6 to 10 inches before the signal goes out. Light snow barely even registers lower readings on the signal strength menu (we don't bother clearing that off since it usually melts the next day).

    If the snow is heavy enough, it can block the signal. Wait for the deformation band to move out from your area. I heard cold air aloft was starting to warm as the low moves away and snow is changing to sleet, so just wait an hour or so. Enjoy the snow while you can, since it is a rare treat down that way.

    We actually got about 2-4". It stayed on the ground but not the pavement. It snowed for about 6 hours. We are now getting a strange ice water mix. D* is slowly coming back. I can't yet get my locals. Oh well it was fun while it lasted. Got to make a snowman and have a snowball fight with my son! :)

    Ahhh, that global warming thing strikes again. Call Algore for advice!

    Seriously, can't you just lightly broom it off? That's what I do here.

    About 1-2 inches at my house and had to sweep off the dish also, but my parents who live north of Lake Pontchartrain in the Folsom area got 9 inches......

    Of course they have the essentials covered - generator started and dish cleaned. :)

    The...
    That same front just passed over and is heading off the into the Atlantic. Even if it was still snowing in the upper atmosphere, at a balmy 61 degrees on the ground, it was liquid snow by the time it hit, which is what we've been getting for the past 2-3 hours.
