    +SN again in Gaithersburg. I’m near Quince Orchard High School. All four kids just came in and are headed back out again. I’ve got chicken in the slow cooker and am about to light a fire. What a wonderful surprise this has been. Man I love snow season.

    March 20-21 Storm Banter and Party Thread

    Earlier everyone was fretting when LWX wasn’t hoisting warnings soon enough. Now folks are upset LWX is going too big on their amounts. I mean obviously they haven’t digested the 00z suite and it’s cutbacks. Forget the fact that they are all Mets and have studied the math, physics and science. Or that they have experience with our climo, and forecasting here, for some, probably years. Obviously they have no clue. (This is sarcasm if you weren’t sure.) Folks are getting way over their skis with the deb downer worry imo. We are about to get snow in the Mid Atlantic in late March. Spring has supposedly sprung. But here we are. If you thought you were getting 15 inches in some sort of 5 hour deathband tomorrow, we’ll then yeah you’ll probably be disappointed. But if you’re happy it can still snow around here and are looking forward to enjoying watching stuff fall from the sky tomorrow, then let’s just enjoy this. It’s been a long time since the whole sub has truly gotten a good snowfall. January 2016 was memorable, but too long ago. Now we’ve got a snow storm knocking on our doors. Let’s not waste our time fretting over whether we get 4 or 6 or 12. I know we’re all selfish and we all want all the snow. But let’s just enjoy this one. It’s bonus snow in a snow drought year. If we spend all our time worrying about model output and radar returns not doing precisely what we expected, we’ll then we’re gonna miss out on all the fun. Snow brings everyone here joy. We wouldn’t be hanging out in a winter weather forum if it didn’t. Let’s tap into that and enjoy this storm. It’s gonna snow tomorrow dudes!! There is not a storm cancel. Beautiful white stuff is gonna fall from the sky. Some of us are gonna do better than others. It might be historic, it might not. Let’s not waste this worrying about the things we have no control over. The atmosphere is gonna do its thing. Let’s watch it and enjoy it! Sorry for the rant. I’ve lurked and learned so much here. I appreciate all I’ve gained. There are so many smart people in this forum. Thank you for sharing your knowledge. Now, stiff upper lip, & enjoy our incoming snow.
