    That's exactly what it's like here in DC. Glad I missed out on all the excitement today.

    When the dewpoint reaches 70 it's no longer a nice day to me.

    True that! But fortunately in this case after about 2 hours of overcast it has cleared out nicely.

    Interesting...not too far west of you here in Lanco and the sky has completely clouded over. Showers are actually just west of me, not predicted...

    Aww man...so envious of you! We spent 10 days there back in 2013. (my parents used to live there) What a stunning place. Get ready to spend serious coin on food though. We visited during the era of Subway's famous "$5 foot long" promotion. Well...in Alaska that $5 foot long was running about $12. We really had no intention of eating at Subway in Alaska, but after our first night dinner priorities changed. We ate at a traditional salmon bake and for the 8 of us the tab was over $400. That was with 4 kids and NO alcohol consumed by anyone in our party. It was also much warmer than what I was prepared for...several days of temps in the low 80s. Very few places have AC because it's seldom needed. We had a couple of uncomfortably warm nights for sleeping. We arrived in Anchorage and my first impression was "meh" - Anchorage is a large city of over 250,000 people and it didn't feel that much different than around here. We rented a car, got about oh, 2 miles outside the city on one of the very few highways in Alaska and my wife was like "um..there's a moose in our lane ahead." Suddenly we realized we weren't in the LSV of PA any longer. We probably didn't go a mile farther and a black bear came lumbering across the road... Enjoy your 18 hours of daylight! Anchorage currently has a sunrise of 5:00am and sunset is quickly approaching 11:00pm. It takes a bit of getting used to it getting dark after midnight...

    Absolutely perfect spring morning out there. Kind of invigorating...

    Funny you mentioned that...with the amount of moisture left over from this past storm plus modest instability, any sunshine today will serve to fuel some RAIN showers this afternoon.

    I want to be near water. Wife wants to be in the mountains. Key West seems like a good compromise to me.

    Looks like the end is in sight now...band is starting scoot east instead of northeast. Should be out of the steady rain in the next hour or so. Maybe. I hope.

    As much as I love snow, I am beginning to think Key West will be a nice place to retire in about 9 years.

    I say that all the time. Every day like this is one less potentially hot and miserable day.

    Same here. Raining as hard if not harder than at any point yesterday.

    This pattern has to break soon...right?

    Looks like this afternoon is shaping up to be another soaker. We can use it...not much has fallen now for about 16 hours.

    Just the highest elevations of the northern mountains...but still...
