  1. The number one reason I miss New England is There is No such thing as local Maple syrup out here. Even if it was not from around the corner, nothing taste like privately owned and operated sugar shack products Where I am in Northern Arizona. (NOTE Northern) we still see winter, snow and all, but not to the extremes you get. WE get to see all four seasons, But there still is no sugar maples, no sugar shacks or local products. Heck! we don't even get any real fresh cider out here. it's all that pasteurized factory brands with preservatives. So! I do understand that life in New England is far from optimal, but You do have some great things going for you! The Old Prognosticator.
  2. That feeling! Right before the rain, the feeling you get when you can smell the rain on the wind. That first golden morning when you know that Spring has arrived, and you know the days ahead are going to be warm. Sitting by a window watching the snow falling. A warm beverage in your hand, feeling safe and comfortable. How can weather be calming? When you immerse yourself in the knowledge of weather, you no longer look at one day and hold that as your emotion. A gloomy rainy day no longer brings you down. A sunny day makes you look forward to the next change! I know this because I live it! One day is never enough. When look at today, you look at the possibilities of tomorrow. No two days are ever alike, and each day brings a new perspective. I am here and looking forward to helping you connect with the inner peace that weather observation can bring.

  5. Great looking map, love the show of winds, very helpful for tracking lows and highs.
  6. Winter 2019-2020 was a bust in Northern AZ almost glad I gave up my plowing job. As it turned out the biggest snow was on the 18-19-20 of March. first day of spring. 8-10" Not looking forward to summer dry and drought.
  7. My first remembrance was when I was in Southern Maine one very cold winter some 18 or so years ago.
  8. Often when the Sky is clear, and the temperatures are dropping, (true especially when reaching towards or passed 0 deg. F. ) what little there may be, is crystallized it into snowflakes.

  10. I'm using the Ambient Weather ws-2902a WiFi Osprey solar powered wireless PWS The only batteries it uses are for the solar panel backup and the memory backup in the display. Worth putting a good set of batteries in each year. only a bit of a stumble getting it set up to connect to my modem for online reading and data logging. This is my choice for a well designed and easy to use unit.
  11. A bit of snow on the Mountain tops here in Flagstaff No storm yet. but expecting precipitation Tuesday night through Thursday. it's colder, not cold. but that's about to change. Wednesday-Thursday a dusting to 3"
  12. Over 10 years in Flagstaff and the local/state/Gov. forecasters have yet to get it right. the #1 reason is that there is so much area that is considered Flagstaff and #2 the elevation changes. Five separate forecast zones would cover this area much better than the one general forecast. As a prognosticator I have seen Cloudless Snow, Sunny and warm over there and Thunderstorm with hail and dropping temperatures where I was. 4-6" of snow on the mountain and nothing in town, Snow banks and flurries here, and sunny warm with flowers blooming in another section of town. Can it get weirder than this? I expect so! Still I have done better without the "meteorologist" Thanks for allowing me to have my say. The Ol' Prognosticator visit: freehand-forecasting
