  1. Well, to paraphrase Bilbo Baggins in LOTR, "We'll get half as much snow as we should like, and less than half as much as we deserve!!"
  2. Hey, gotta replace that blood with *something*!!!! Looks really tasty, and I like the clever name too!
  3. 11 pages for a Winter 2020-21 thread, and we're barely into September...oy gevalt!! Either desperation or hope, I'm not sure which. I didn't read the whole thing, but has Ji canceled this upcoming winter yet? And how many times? Do we have Panic Room previews?? @WxWatcher007 promised so many new amenities this upcoming season for the wayward weenies!!
  4. Something like Feb. 14, 2015 would be kinda cool!! That wasn't really 2-4" area-wide, but I got like 2" in an hour or so followed by gusty winds and temperatures plummeted into the teens for the next day or so, as an Arctic front went through. One of the coolest "mini events" I can remember.
  5. Hello, friend!!! I hope you are well these days!
  6. I'm so sorry to hear about that, Mrs. J!! My sincere condolences and hugs to you. I know how hard it is to make that decision, my brother and sister-in-law have had cats for years and they've had to go through the same kind of thing. Never fun. But I hope you will all have many good memories of Oscar over his 18 years!! On a lighter note if I may. My stepmom once saw her cat sitting neatly on the table, right in the middle of a placemat (illegal for the cat to be there, of course!). She said why is it that when cats do something wrong, they place themselves right in the center?? As if deliberately defiant! I'm sure you can relate to that! Also, when I go visit my brother/sister-in-law I always hear that it's like a spa weekend for their cats...another set of hands available to pet them!!
  7. Hey, just remember that it's after 5:00PM somewhere in the world. That's my excuse, and I'm sticking to it!!
  8. Dogs and cats living together...and mass hysteria??
  9. Nice to see you, been awhile! Hope you are doing well!
  10. I thought references to that particular storm (much like a certain other one in December 2010) are "unmentionable" around these parts!!
  11. Ahhh, too bad. But I understand. However...a business opportunity lost!! (ETA: Good to hear from you, too! Hope you are well these days!!)
  12. Will he start jumping up and down for joy like Cantore does with thunder every wind burst that meets tropical storm or hurricane criteria??
  13. Are tropical snobs similar to HECS snobs in winter? And I wonder if the Tropical Reaper may be called upon (if he exists!) to collect all those weenie souls jumping off the cliffs at each model run or NHC update! Hmmm...Tropical just might work! Throw on a Hawaiian like shirt over that skeleton, along with some shorts and one of those sun hats, and you'll be all set! Maybe carry a tropical drink of sorts (a Hurricane?? Margarita??).
