    April Banter

    Call me Roger Smith or Joe Bastardi, but I have this funny feeling that all of us might just reach or exceed climo snow in the next week. If we get a decent snow from Saturday followed by an Archibald event on Tuesday we will have lived through the most epic April snow period perhaps ever. Okay, my wife just woke me up.....sloppy inch on Saturday and rain all next week.....Reality sets back in

    January Banter String

    Years ago I used to wonder what the heck is Ji's issue. Then, I learned to realize that he is simply a foil or that little devil guy on your shoulder that always tells you what you don't want to hear. I have learned to fully appreciated Ji and almost to value you his input as it makes me laugh now rather than get perturbed. That being said, there can be and is only one Ji. When we have a boatload of mini-Ji's the ship sinks!! Allow Ji to be Ji!! Like or dislike as you so desire.....Put him on ignore if you choose....But don't try to become Ji! Too many Ji's spoil the pot!!

    January Med/Long Range Disco Part 2

    Let's not forget the 48 hour period somewhere around day 7-8 where models suddenly decide to pull the rug from under our feet and say, "You can forget your return to cold, winter pattern... We are going straight into summer!" Only to go back to the original idea of a sweet winter pattern 48 hours later. There will be much crying and gnashing of teeth for those 48 hours.

    December 2017 Mid-Long Range Disco 2

    As a "Post less, Read more" participant of this forum, I want to give my sincere appreciation to those who have the knowledge and the ability to share insight in a manner that is understandable and fruitful to others reading. As a teacher, I appreciate those who make complicated atmospheric maps and concepts easier to understand. Posters like @showmethesnow, @Bob Chill, @psuhoffman, @mitchnick, @usedtobe and many other red taggers and hobbiest are the reason I find much pleasure in this weird hobby. The fact that meteorology is an inexact science keeps me intrigued much like an old man playing slots for hours at a time. So, thank you to all of those people who make this hobby so much fun. Oh, and a special thank you to Mr. Cold Meiser who is seemingly beating his brother up so far this year in the Mid-Atlantic.
