  3. 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.

    Lots of pinging, seems to be all sleet now in Quince Orchard area of Gaithersburg.
  5. March 20/21 STORM Obs/Discussion- No Banter

    I’m very close to that location. Seems to be back to freezing rain here. Precip is light again.
  6. March 20/21 STORM Obs/Discussion- No Banter

    Yeah. Hoping it switches to all sleet soon. I already have accretion in the branches in my yard.
  7. March 20/21 STORM Obs/Discussion- No Banter

    32/29 Sleet now in Quince Orchard area of Gaithersburg. When the precip slows down it changes back to light rain/freezing rain.
  8. March 20/21 STORM Obs/Discussion- No Banter

    40/30 This is gonna be fun.
  9. March 1-2 wind event

    N. Potomac/ Darnestown area of G’burg is already reporting outages. That area is prone to outages though.
  10. March 1-2 wind event

    Getting gusty here in Gaithersburg. Came in strong from very calm. Closest station resorts 21 mph gusts. Skies are also clearing. And it’s loud.
  11. March 1-2 wind event

    Don’t want to get too offtipic, so mods can delete this if needed. But for MCPS the change had a significant impact. This is in part due to the fact that we also observe several religious holidays that other Md school districts do not. We cannot change those holidays because absentee rates for both students and teachers would be too great. I agree with you that we should be able to accommodate the new calendar.
  12. March 1-2 wind event

    Yep. But our calendar is so condensed now because of our newly mandated start date after Labor Day.
  13. March 1-2 wind event

    We have 2 days left in June. Then it will hit spring break.
