    TN valley heavy rain/flooding week of whenever

    The thunder and lightning show has been impressive here tonight, I was not expecting that. Big winter storm in 10 days, book it, done.

    The Garden Thread

    Almost time to get mater seeds planted in the green house! I've used florescent tubes in the past but I'm gonna try to find some cheap LED lights on Amazon this go around. Planning to go probably 2/3rds Cherokee Purples and 1/3rd Pink Brandywines. The Purples seem to be more disease resistant at my location. Last year the Brandywines got that yellow blight and never did really recover properly. I'll supplement the seedlings with some other purchased plants from Lowes but I'm aiming for 100 or more in the ground this year.

    Geography. This area is very hard to mathematically sort out variables that determine if the exact timing, precip amounts, and temps that produce borderline rain or snow. Couple that with the fact that climate is changing and historical patterns can't be relied on as heavily as they once were and it's just a tough thing to predict here. Models are friggin fantastic at predicting snow in many/most other areas, especially higher latitudes where these variables aren't a marginal. It's frustrating, but that's just the reality we live in here in the mid south. Best to just take it in stride and find humor in it I say.

    Congrats to all that got snow! What a crazy system to track with models all over the place. I didn't measure, but it looked like 1 to 2 inches here in west knoxville. Roads are fine. Very beautiful scene, I'm thankful.

    Holy crap, I had to google Fitzcairn, but you are right! It's Roger Daltrey from The Who but I never knew he played a part in that series! Had this avatar for well over a decade...

    Would you mind posting the one for Knoxville please? Those charts are one of the best things about a WeatherBell subscription IMO. Thanks!
