  1. Spring/Summer 2018 Mid to Long Term Discussion.

    I can take or leave the snow but I'm more concerned about the temps. If we dip down much below 30 I'm gonna have to winterize the camper. I really don't want to do that. Glad I didn't try to get cute with the garden this year and plant a bunch of stuff early. Thankfully only cool season stuff in the ground at the moment. Current SREF mean of 27 degrees for TYS... ugh.
  2. Tn Valley Severe Weather 2018

    Nice storm rolled by just a tad south of me. .
  3. Winter Banter 2017/18

    I'm watching the meteogram temps like a hawk. Aiming to de-winterize the camper this coming Saturday in preparation for a Cedars of Lebanon State Park run for Easter weekend. Hoping to avoid any pipe freezing cold going forward but will bust out the antifreeze again if need be. After today's taste of winter I'm all in for spring. Time to focus on the garden and camping trips!
  4. 2017-2018 Winter Observations

    I’ve had a nice moderate snow this morning here on a ridge in Norris Dam State Park. No stickage which is a good thing considering I’ve got to drag a camper home soon. Fun to watch! .

    Whoa, now that is an interesting site. Thanks for the new bookmark!

    I'm camping at Norris this coming weekend so you can be assured of a crippling thunder snowstorm with wind advisory and tree limb breaking accumulations area wide. You're welcome.

    Which is why I posted that link in Banter and not a main weather thread.

    Possibly 248 National Weather Service forecasters to be fired. http://fortune.com/2018/02/13/trump-budget-national-weather-service-layoffs/?utm_source=fark&utm_medium=website&utm_content=link&ICID=ref_fark

    Nothing at all wrong with posting other peoples' thoughts from outside this sub forum whether it's from other sub forums, the general, twitter, accuweather guys, Robert, etc. It's ALL very much welcome. Hell historically that's pretty much all I've done, with the exception of obs, is copy and paste data, maps, and other's thoughts. It's even in my title "Copy/Pasta". If people don't like the content they can skip over it or put me on ignore. Never heard any complaints about posting content like that before. Some of the twitter people may have biases and I may not agree with everything but that's fine. Ryan Maue for example, I don't care for his anti-climate change nonsense but I still am interested to get his take on weather events. For awhile we used to consistently quote Don Sutherland's amazing posts over here. There are some weather geniuses in the Southeast forum too. All together this is a repository of information and discussion that we can all learn from. Let's keep that going and by all means people do not need to be afraid of posting. And Jeff, I have tons of respect for you and what you provide this forum. Since we're airing our grievances a bit here, I'll go ahead and suggest that it would be nice if you'd keep your political jokes about Mueller etc. out of the main weather threads. This country is divided as hell right now and there are plenty of places on the internet for snarking about politics. You may think it's lighthearted fun but others can get riled up or turned off. Just my frank opinion. Carry on, and have a great evening.

    Carvers, just wanted to say that the bits you post from other sources are very much appreciated as is your excellent insight. You've really stepped up your game this season and we are all better informed as a result. Good job!

    I just reserved state park campsites for two trips in March. I'm sure once I get the camper de-winterized we'll have a March 93 style super storm. You're welcome.

    Warmer air still hanging on in the central valley with many still at 36-37 degrees at 2am according to wunderground. This is not unlike the SREF depiction from days ago. I like the 'NAM ensembles' for short term accuracy these days.
  13. The Garden Thread

    I moved my 4 buckets of tree collards into the garage during the Dec cold snap, only watered em once since then. Amazingly enough they look happy right now, despite me being too busy/lazy to move them back outside! That is one tough variety of plant. I'm gonna turn em loose into some chicken dirt come March and see what they do. Might have to organize a Tennessee Valley Forum Collard Cookoff next fall, whose with me?

    That's awesome man, proud for you. Hopefully it sticks around tomorrow so you can enjoy it!
  15. Feb 1st-2nd 2018 Potential Snow Event.

    Yeah I never even saw any fatty flakes. Just a light to moderate slop. Schools may even run on time despite the temps crashing later. Still at 37 degrees here lol.
