  1. Dayum! I see the back edge of the Holiday season already!
  2. Sounds like a song that could become like the 12 Days of Christmas for the Mid-Atlantic forum! Actually, that should be more like a 12 Step Grief Plan...but anyhow: 27 not-time-to panics, 29 more yets, 59 i'm-just-keeping-it-realz, An inch of snow for PSU, 15 Reapers a-reaping, And a Panic Room in a Pear Tree!!
  3. It's the start of the beginning of the cancellation that will be un-canceled and un-un-cancelled several times.
  4. I don't know if I could imitate @George BM's amazing start-of-the-month Banter thread tales...but just for you Jeb: <@Jebman imitation>Yarn! Yeah, you bet! All you folks in the Mid-Atlantic are going to need TONS of yarn to knit thick sweaters to stay warm in the EPIC ICE-AGE COLD you're going to experience this winter! While you're out shoveling TONS of FEET of SNOW in your warm sweaters and jackets, you'll forget all about PSU's inch! </@Jebman imitation>
  5. Yup! Happy Meteorological Winter to all!!
  6. Insane sunset this evening! Just stunning...
  7. You mean British English? I believe it was Winston Churchill who said, "America and England are two countries separated by a common language."
  8. Looks like you had the extra lean Thanksgiving meal! Cute dog, too! Did you toss him any bones to fetch...oh, wait, perhaps bad idea! ("OK, Spot...hand me back my ribs now!") Hope you had a good holiday as well! The Panic Room was indeed brilliant and funny. I don't know where you got all those images over the years, but they were great! Don't let the crap posts around here drive you away.
  9. I always like a good FAKE PUNT! Like the one FSU pulled against Auburn in the 2014 BCS championship game, that sparked the Seminoles' comeback win!
  10. Wait a minute...all this time I thought the Reaper meant serious bid'niz!!! Now we hear it was all for amusement?!?! But you do have a point, winter can definitely be the most dumb (even dumberer!!) time of year on here!! And in all honesty, I really appreciated your humor!
  11. I know exactly what you mean, and I've seen the same. Kinda annoys me as well.
  12. OMG, it's OVER!!!! If the @Jebman is contemplating a reaping you know it's bad! It would be @WxWatcher007's greatest triumph I suspect, if the Reaper actually takes the ultimate snow optimist's soul!! He might even come out of retirement for that!
  13. I'm not @Bob Chill and don't even play him on Snow-TV , but chiming in here to say good on you for recognizing if you perhaps got "out of hand" with some posts, etc. Hell, we all do that! You cannot change what happened or what was said of course, but it is possible to just move on and better oneself afterward. Don't look back and dwell too much (this coming from someone who tends to dwell waaaay too much at times, which I do!). I'd wager most people would be willing to recognize if one changes for the better, and see you for the better.
  14. Hey there @Bob Chill! Good to see you in here again, and let me first say those fall pics are amazing!! I totally love fall and fall colors. Agree totally with you. Some banter or yukking it up in the LR thread is fine when there's not really a whole lot going on, or if there's a lot of "hypothetical" pattern watching for the medium and beyond period. I admit I post a certain amount of banter in there, though I also will reply and post it in the Banter thread here as well. But yeah, when things get going and there's an actual threat on the horizon, or when we go into "storm mode", banter should be a minimum. Like you, I found myself getting at times really aggravated at some of the doom-posting and other BS, some of it done deliberately. But I've become a bit more "Zen" about it and let it go, only paying attention to or replying to posts with actual content. Doesn't mean I don't get frustrated when snow chances fall apart...but it's freaking weather! And I don't feel the need to put 1000 posts on here agonizing about how I feel! LOL!! I'm sorry you were kind of driven out of here with all that. I hope that now maybe you'll be able to stop on by in here more despite some of the crap (though I can understand it's not easy!). As I mentioned in the LR thread a short while ago, your input is always welcome here, and I've gotten a lot out of the knowledge you and others impart.
  15. I know, right?!?! Can't even get to Thanksgiving dinner before several people (you know who!) post doom and gloom that we aren't going to get any snow during the current/upcoming cold period. IT'S NOT EVEN DECEMBER!! Anyone expecting "real" snow this month...well, I got nothing!
  16. Oh, and hello to you @Bob Chill!! Welcome back, always good to hear your input and commentary, please don't let the usual craptastic posting and sniping deter you from stopping by!
  17. I know this is an older post (catching up in here on all the..."fun"!), but I agree Many knowledgeable people in here have called for a much more favorable setting compared to previous winters (as you indicate, @psuhoffman, @CAPE, @brooklynwx99, etc.). Of course, nobody is calling for a 2009-10 redux (though we'd take it!) or even a single HECS type storm, and nothing is "guaranteed". But it should be far better...maybe a low bar to cross, but still. Hell, last winter I got all of 0.5" snow on Feb. 1 that was gone before noon, and some snow-TV sometime at the end of Feb. Not even a single illustrious PSU-inch for the season!! Other than that and the mini Arctic blast around Christmas there was nothing; in my opinion it's hard to do worse (oh, and don't forget the +5 to +7 temperature departure, too!).
  18. Ha! Well, Cleveland holds its annual Polar Bear Plunge into Lake Erie during the middle of winter (proceeds do go to charity)!! Bunch of crazy people in bathing suits jumping into freezing water!!
  19. Happy Thanksgiving, AmWX Mid-Atlantic Family!!! A couple of photos...Japanese maples at the Audubon Nature Center, the color was insane, like an impressionist painting! And, a black and white of the National Cathedral taken from the rooftop deck where I currently live in Bethesda.
  20. Have a great time and a great Thanksgiving holiday, @mappy!!!
  21. I see what you did there! Very subtle and @ravensrule-like!!
