  1. qanon + 4chan = 40westwx
  2. i've noticed on tropical tidbits, the icon never depicts precip that is a mix or ice. it only shows rain or snow. any idea why?
  3. yeah, the second half of that winter was very active. the first half of that winter was basically snowless everywhere. we had a severely negative ao/nao the entire winter though. i'm guessing the first half of the winter must have been a lot of suppression. eventually the dam broke and we cashed in.
  4. ikcarsky sounds like the My Pillow guy. take some herbal supplements + hcq and call him in the morning. he'll even give you a a free pillow if you take his cocktail potion.
  5. i believe we had a severely negative -nao/-ao during the winter of 59-60. and yet we were completely snowless until sometime in february that season? patience.
  6. if all people need to care about is the risk of dying, then you're probably correct. however, long-term covid symptoms is a very real thing people are experiencing. it appears similar to chronic lyme disease. and if you talk to people who have chronic lyme -- their lives are miserable. hopefully chronic covid doesn't become a big problem, but it definitely lingers in some people longer than the flu. measles has a much lower ifr than covid and we vaccinate for that.
  7. federalism means most management, governance and coordination is delegated (federated) to the states. my point was that this doesn't work when managing a crisis. the government should play a more central role but it currently doesn't. germany employs federalism as well, but they coordinate much better amongst their regions than we do.
  8. we're having the same issues with the vaccine rollout that we had with testing. federalism doesn't work for crisis management.
  9. well, in this case, it appears the rain/snow line for these storms is west of chicago. montreal, quebec and even labrador are getting rain.
  10. so we have a -ao/-nao/+pna, and yet all storms cut west of chicago for the next two weeks? teleconnections are basically meaningless if that's how we roll now.
  11. it appears the 2020 life expectancy will go down between 2-3 years. 2019 life expectancy was 78.8...they are expecting the 2020 life expectancy to be about 76.8. biggest drop since world war II. we've also experienced the biggest increase in deaths since the spanish flu in 1918. if doctors are supposedly just switching the cause of death to covid, in order to get more reimbursement, how exactly does that explain the above? (don't answer...it's a rhetorical question for the conspiracy theorists)
  12. 3400 dead today. for context: on average, heart disease kills 2100 per day, cancer kills 1800 per day. so right now covid is killing almost as many people as heart disease and cancer combined. but hey, it's not that fatal, 99.997% survive. or something.
  13. yes, i've brought this up too. honestly, i think some of these people need to get off twitter, and take a tour of an overflowing hospital.
  14. tom cruise yelled at the maskless people on the movie set. too funny. honestly, this should be how we deal with the anti-mask contingent. dr. fauci is just way too nice. https://www.thesun.co.uk/tvandshowbiz/13489709/tom-cruise-covid-rant-mission-impossible-2/
