  1. Seems like we're in a seasonal pattern over the last few years in which we see trough west, ridge east in winter and ridge west, trough east in summer. That might just be recency bias, but it feels like that's generally where we've been for a little while.
  2. Same here. It seems like cherries are where they're all partying at now. There's a house down the street with two cherry trees out front that are still loaded and loud, but everywhere else is virtually silent.
  3. Wow, man…that’s incredibly impressive!
  4. Today isn’t so bad, but 8:00am swim practice is going to be chiiiillee the next couple days!
  5. The split filled in. Pretty amazing call by the mesos that showed the southern edge of the storms poking down just far enough to get Burke in on the action.
  6. Good to hear the Sluggo seems to have had an effect. I was seeing slug damage on my lettuce, basil, one jalapeño plant so I applied some Sluggo and haven’t noticed new damage since. I had to delay putting my cantaloupes in the ground, so that didn’t help. I was hoping to build a new raised bed this spring, but I didn’t get around to it, so I had to plant them in the old cucumber location that no longer get the sun it used to (neighbors’s tree has grown out to shade that spot more now). We’ll see what happens. If I get some fruit, then great, if not…there’s always next year!
  7. That cuke looks good…much better than my cantaloupes, for sure!
  8. Looks like the NAM Burke jack will end up verifying out in the northern Loudoun area. Not unhappy about that.
  9. If a model is run enough times, it's bound to be right sometime.
  10. 12z has the same jack area, but cut the totals by a couple inches.
  11. Burke jack. No thanks.
  12. We had a deluge for an hour or so (with light rain after) as cells popped overhead at 5:00-ish. Swim practice was cancelled. Within 15 minutes of the rain starting, our back window well filled up and water started coming in through the basement window. Had to go outside to clear the gutters, then bail the water out of the window well. Good thing is that side of the basement has a drain in the floor and is our storage/HVAC/water heater area and not the finished section. We were able to wipe it all up and get it dried out pretty quickly. 2.29" from yesterday at the nearest reporting PWS (just ESE of Fairfax City), but I suspect we had a bit more as we were closer to the main cell than that PWS. Been raining pretty good so far this morning and it looks like plenty more on the way.
  13. I guess this happened.
  14. Boundaries headed WSW over the Potomac now. Maybe something will fire somewhere on them.
