blogger Michael Molovinsky discussed yesterday. According to a Post by the Eastern PA Weather Authority, which accurately predicted this Monster Storm, "Allentown, PA all time record for daily snow depth (total snow on ground, not fallen currently) is 28" set on February 12th, 1983. Current snow depth is 24.2" and that record may be tied or fall before this ends."
In Allentown, the water lease may have dealt a blow to snow removal. Before the lease, there was a crew of seasoned plow truck operators who could respond to a snow storm. But once the water lease was executed, many of them now reportedly now work at the water authority and took their trucks with them.
