    Dry as a bone here, outside of the low spot back in the woods. I am guessing you have drainage issues due to grade and/or poor artificial drainage in a development. 

    I cleaned out the garden beds Thursday and ran the mower to collect the junk.  There was a lot of dust.  Amazing how quickly it can change without rain around here.

    Every post  election wire prices increase to some extent . I've been at this for a long time and this current hike is the highest I can remember in this short of time.  

    The pandemic caused mostly shortages on electrical supplies not much $ increase.. . Maybe 5% but this current increase was huge and happened almost overnight. 

    I had occasionally be checking in on lumber prices since (like everyone else who retained their jobs) we were looking at a renovation.  Commodity price movements have been aggressive.  (Lumber top, copper bottom)

    Estes, hills of Boulder, and Fort Collins in CO, Cheyanne to Scottsbluff in WY/NE. It's going to be wild to watch. Very dynamic system. 110+kt 5H jet max rolling through the base. It'll strengthen over SE CO late tomorrow into Sunday. It's the perfect combo for a Front Range special. 

    If you compare modeling, though, it does look like this is the storm that finally broke the GFS.  None of the others are even close to the QPF that the GFS is spitting out.

    Yeah a first round pick is a tough ask with the good tackles available in this year's draft. Brown is proven though, multiple pro bowls, and only 24.

    How about this lol..

     

    The problem from our side is that we have zero depth at WR.  It is Jefferson/Thielen and a bunch of scrubs.

    If there was any player that was potentially movable, it is Anthony Barr.  Not sure if you need OLB though.

    NFL is back. FA period and then the draft.

    One local story is Orlando Brown Jr wanting a trade from the Ravens because he wants to play his natural position at LT. One of the best young tackles in the league, and will want to be paid like it. A trade will be complicated, and the Ravens will want a a first round pick most likely.

    For you Vikings fans, they seem to be one of the teams that are very interested.

    Yes, the Vikings community has been debating this since we parted with Reiff.  The problem is the contract.  Would we really part with draft assets and then have to sign a guy for $20m+?  Especially when we are in range of potentially getting Slater or Darrisaw in the draft.

    The trade that I’ve seen floated is a swap of first round picks (Balt moves up to 14, Vikings down to 27) and you guys get the third rounder back from the Ngakoue trade.

    who's running Eastern now and is there any way to save the threads in the event Eastern is closed for good?

    mitchnick with the prescient thoughts prior to the board going down.  Sadly, the server is probably now in a dump somewhere since the guy who bought(?) it passed away.

    Haha no worries. I'd imagine that will certainly be useful at some point, since a fair bit of images from that timeframe were taken down to conserve file space. For now I'm going to focus on pre-AmWX events, since most of our events following that are entirely intact. 09-10 and earlier are a completely different story. 

    It is weirdly hit-and-miss on what links open and what don't.  It is fun to see the titles, but man would I like to read those threads again.  Guess I'll look up 2016...

    Time sensitive but what the heck is the radar picking up heading towards DC? Straight trajectory from the ESE. 

    Mostly kidding but what causes that? Also oops for initially putting this in the wrong thread.

    That's probably the sunrise.

    Man, we got absolutely nuked by the derecho in 2011. I was living in Falls Church near I-495 at the time and my neighborhood was lit up by that beast. I will never forget the sky looking like that - purple, black, swirling, words do not do it justice. There were transformers blowing everywhere and constant lightning and it looked like the fourth of July.

    Folks in my office at the time, particularly those in the Bethesda area, were out of power for up to two weeks. 

    At the time I bailed out and drove to PA for the weekend to stay with family. It was on a Friday night, right? Came back when the power was back on in the nhood.

    I am always going to hold a tiny bit of resentment towards my brother for getting married that weekend in Minneapolis.  I watched it all happen via my phone from Target Field :(

    Than you are probably going to loath this event tomorrow. According to the HRRR we are 46 degrees at noon tomorrow.

    @clskinsfan the HRR forecast of 46 at KOKV that you posted last night only missed by 14 degrees lol

    Missed by several hours, but damn if it didn’t get to 46 at KOKV today.
