    We ran $300-$400 water AND power bills for D/J/F for several years when he was making snow.

    EDIT- and that was 18-22 years ago.

    Super cheap then.

    Average residential main supply isn't adequate for snowmaking.  A pond and good centrifugal pump or irrigation system can fix that.  A Hale fire pump can work in a pinch as long as the head isn't too high.

    Sunny and 82 this morning in my greenhouse. Foggy, cool and damp outside. Everyone needs a greenhouse. They are amazing for mental health. Well.. what's growing inside also helps lol

    It's always 420 somewhere...

    Oh, winter is coming to the Mid Atlantic. It's going to get COLD, and its gonna be a SNOWY one, too! Get a whole bunch of Jebman Shovels. Get a ton of drinks to stay awake because you are all gonna be glued to those MODELS for months! It's going to be a super fun ride in the Mid Atlantic and you will all be sick of shoveling snow!

    Sleet is hard on backs and shovel handles! :P

    With a bonus fly and a couple wasps! It's 61 at Fort Belvoir this A.M. and feels refreshing out. Looks like a gorgeous day coming up.

    All honeybees here.  Everywhere.  Fortunately the only yellow jackets were around the food trucks!

    It's fixed.

    DC will get demolished by a massively White Christmas.

    Everyone in the Washington DC Metropolitan Region will get snowed in and will get unprecedentedly DRUNK.

    If ONLY!

    I'll take my chances at 24"+ near Mason Dixon line, DC can have their 2" rain at 33F! :P

    Nothing is worse than snow to sleet to ZR.  Snow or bust.  And fluffy stuff at 15"+ per 1" liquid.  Slop is bad too.

    White Christmas would be a real treat.  Imagine if Jan 23, 2016 was December 24, 2023.  Grass covered by nightfall, wake up to thunder with a foot on the ground and by the time ham/turkey comes out of oven the death bands are still cranking with upwards of three feet on the ground.  Boxing day is crisp in the lower 20s and everything is just buried.  Everywhere.  A Knickerbocker class storm on Christmas day.  That would be one to remember for life.  For now it's just a (distant) dream.

    It's still amazing how far Lee made it considering it developed so far east and became so intense. All the way off Maine is pretty far west for a Cape Verde hurricane. 


    And that wind and wave field is amazing.

    Reminds me of hurricane Karl 19 years ago.  I was at sea west of the Azores and the swells were insane and the eye was over 450 miles to our south.  Just remember fish storms affect seafarers too! ;)
