    Well in any case... it's not like we didn't know it was coming.

    Did we ever have this when we were growing up- i.e. 80's? I don't recall it...ever. 


    And I feel like I would remember this post apocalyptic sky.

    Can't read the article, but did they really call the 3-year La Nina unprecedented? They're certainly uncommon but not sure if I would categorize it as unprecedented. There have been several dating back to the late 1800's and multiple within the ONI dataset going back to 1950.

    money quote:

    "First, is that typically La Niña follows El Niño, but this is an example of a La Niña event that had no preceding El Niño. That’s not completely impossible, but unlikely. The second thing is, we had this La Niña event that lasted for three years that didn’t follow an El Niño. That is unprecedented. Previous long-lasting La Niñas have always happened after a strong El Niño.”

    None knows you.. cares about what you post . Let’s keep it that way by having you make more posts like this . Keep wearing your mask outdoors alone, while driving in your car alone , and getting your boosters . 

    Oh no- that does it. I’ll be at the next gtg. Book it.

    With snow still otg in areas and a cold time of year there and no lightning ..I mean sure. That sounds like burn season in the high Canadian Rockies 

    If I were you and thank god I’m not, I’d sit out any fire/ smoke conversations for awhile.

    Anyways it took me 0.01 seconds and Google to find out how unusual wildfires during May in Alberta are and the answer is….not at all unusual. Shocker.

    Seed in the spring or fall? Spend spring removing anything unwanted and levelling the ground then seed in fall?

    I mean you can seed in either. The issue w/ the spring is your grass seed is competing w/ weeds so it's less effective and also you can't apply herbicides to control crabgrass etc- because that stops all germination.

    When I "started over" I seeded both (spring/fall) for like 2 yrs...but shifted to a late summer/ fall de-thatching and seeding followed by spring crabgrass, grub control application cycle. Which is effective.

    I am in an inverse bear ETF for Tesla called TSLQ. I am up 10% since Tuesday. And those are shares, not options.

    Those levered etf’s reset their NAV’s daily- you’re going to get chewed up by fees if you hold that- designed for a day or less holding period.

    Also- what do you think the underlying is of that etf?( hint: rhymes with whaptions)

    anyways back to your regularly scheduled programming.

    edit: as of this moment 1:30pm, ~$3.5mm gone lolz. see ya SVB

  7. Looks like some on this board may have a week of their dreams next week: a HECS and a potentially devastating credit/ liquidity US banking crisis to watch unfold while snowed in.

    As someone who has significant funds at SVB obviously hope that’s not the case but getting skittish and might pull everything at open tomm. Which is what a good ole fashioned bank run is… so?
