    Straddling the Smithtown/Hauppauge Border
  1. I’d say consider yourself lucky, but I’d imagine you’re disappointed. So close to the city, too? That’s bad luck!
  2. Well said. I echo your sentiments!
  3. It’s not the dates or time of year. It’s the weariness of cold that I have succumbed to. I love all types of weather. I DON’T love two days of no power, exacerbating an injury I rehabbed three months to get back to feeling “OK” just to get my cars unearthed, and having my daily life and the life of my wife who commutes to NYC daily disrupted every flipping week. We can have snow in November, December, January, and February...and yes, apparently in March. I just figured others may share my feeling of “bring on spring.”
  4. As much as I am a weather enthusiast, I will never understand some people's insatiable desire for more snow when we've been pummeled for the better part of a month. In April no less. LOL
  5. We're done, right? RIGHT?
  6. Right. The way some people are talking on this thread you'd think that the storm is going to miss the area completely. Not every storm is going to be 25" and blizzard conditions. This one's going to be bad enough considering the heavy wet nature of the snow. I lost power for 2 days during the last one.
  7. Upton still has 7" for Western Suffolk to the Hamptons, so I'm still confused about a bust. Their discussion mentions there are still some deviations in the forecast track but they're not budging. Which models are still swinging wide right?
  8. I'm not saying Upton is wrong, I'm saying based on all the banter in this thread am I missing something?

    Which model(s)?
  10. December Model Discussion

    Warministas. Love it. Yes, there is a certain danger to model hugging, especially with this one. I was surprised (shouldn't have been) about the waffling this close to the event.
  11. The Canadian has a pretty close call for Christmas Day around here, albeit rain as the primary form of precipitation. How reliable is that model lately?
  12. Interesting that the last GFS run has the frontal passage on the EC doorstep by Christmas. Are we looking at crashing temps late on Christmas Day?
  13. Some of the responses by folks in here make me literally scared to ask about things, like the fact I see two major models showing a somewhat zonal flow after this cold shot when everyone was honking about cold locking in until all eternity as late as last week...

    Upton was bullish even after the six hour delay in the start of things. Now that the banding has set up unfavorably, either they see something we don’t, or they aren’t willing to give up the ghost.

    It appears that Long Island on the whole is underperforming in terms of snowfall. Am I misreading things?
