    Wait.....you took 40k photos of the moon??? How long did that take??? I assume you stacked them post-processing? If you don't mind me asking....what lens did you use for that?

    Heard on the radio that Norris had opened their gates, but had part of a dock get stuck in a spillway. Edit: cleared and spilling from all three gates Sent from my XT1710-02 using Tapatalk

    Sure!!! Once again, we will all be going ape-poop over analogs, models, El/La No-No status and the various alphabet soup of teleconnections. And no matter how much we prognosticate, analyze, curse, bargain, pray, etc, we will sadly ONCE AGAIN realize that the weather is going to do what it's going to do. We will all be mad, swear off this hobby forever at every tease/bust.....but like moths to light, we will immediately be back when flurries show up in the 384 hour range. For some people it's "Salt Life" or "Lake Life".......but in the Tennessee Valley, tracking the repeated highs and lows of winter weather is OUR way of life - it's what we do. That's my prediction.

    You are correct. That whole area around Kroger and McDonald's is flooded. And the car repair place at Highland and Broadway. There's a creek that runs through there, but can't recall the name of it at the moment Sent from my XT1710-02 using Tapatalk

    I watched the KY game. Pretty physical game and never really seemed that Missouri was a threat to win. They raved and raved over PJ Washington for KY, and bragged on them for beating TN. Karl Ravech, Jimmy Dykes and Laura Rutledge were the ESPN crew calling the game. I like them in the fact they come across unbiased, light-hearted and more factual. Now that whistle-goober color commentator for the TN game last night.....can't stand that guy. He always seems to have nothing but negative to say about TN. Which if it's warranted, then so be it. But don't let your personal feelings get in the way of doing your job. The post game analysis from the ESPN studio crew about UT was spot on....it's the grind of February, everyone is tired, and now you are playing teams for the second time this season.....so the games will be closer and uglier because they are already in tune with scouting report and familiar with them from previous games.

    From Facebook: 59 years ago on February 13, 1960, 17.5 inches of snow dumped in Knoxville. The snowfall total from this storm was 18.8 inches. 17.5 inches of snow is the most snow in one day in Knoxville since records began in 1871. It was 71° 3 days before this 18.8" of snow and it was also 71° in Knoxville 2 days before the Blizzard of 93! Knoxville Monthly Snowfall totals in 1960: January 1960: 8.9" February 1960: 23.3" March 1960: 20.2" (3 snowstorms on 2nd-3rd, 9th, and 11th) 56.7" of snow fell in Knoxville from 1959-1960, the most snow in one year in Knoxville since records began in 1871.

    Reading the verdict on DeSousa last week made me so dadgum mad!!! I absolutely can not stand the NCAA. I believe their should be some oversight to college athletics so things don't get way out of control...but the NCAA isn't that organization. I've always wondered what would happen if several of the Power conferences just thumbed their nose at the NCAA and started their own "league". Like the fabled Tauntaun snowstorms......one can only dream!!!
