  1. This is my first spring in Colorado. The thunder just seems so much more intense here than on the east coast, even if the storm itself is minor. Last two nights we've had house shaker thunder claps. You get those once per year back east.
  2. The AFA graduation was delayed, which caused delays to the flyover.
  3. Boulder did great with this storm. Another bust (3rd this week) for the Palmer Divide.
  4. I haven't had to shovel in a while. The forecasts have busted low lately. My advisory for 4-8" yesterday got me about 2"
  5. I've gotten about 3" so far, though most of it has melted.
  6. It's been snowing all day here but doesn't appear more than an inch has accumulated.
  7. Might as well be cold and snowy if we're stuck at home on Easter
  8. I was in the 3-8" range and got 2" rounded up.
  9. Big bust on the snow forecast for NE Colorado. Some were even expecting it to bust high, ended up busting low
  10. I have at least 6". Measured on the driveway which isn't the best place to measure due to the rain early on. I'll find a better yet non wind driven place to measure when I venture out later to clear the driveway.
  11. * WHAT...Blizzard conditions expected. Total snow accumulations of 6 to 12 inches. Winds gusting as high as 55 mph.
  12. Get a quicker turnover to snow and could be a real nice storm for the area.
  13. Right, but that isn't necessarily here in America
  14. Is there evidence that 20% of cases need hospitalization here in America?
  15. Probably another 10-14 days before it hits it peak in America, judging by how long it took China and Korea to level out
  16. The CDC raised similar concerns back in the Swine Flu days. None of which came close to fruition and not nearly as much was done then to stop the spread.
  17. And those kids are going to be less likely to be washing their hands while out playing/hanging with friends as they would at school
  18. Shutting down the schools will cause a spike, too. Because now instead of kids giving it to kids, they're going to give it to their parents/aunts/uncles/grandparents/older neighbors since not all parents can just take off work to watch their kids.
  19. China is already back in business. Italy is the new ground zero with Spain not far behind. Then the USA is another week or two behind them to hit their peak
  20. Much like the Swine Flu, people are rushing to get tested for any symptom. That's clogging ERs.
  21. The Denver area March snow hole continues. Looks like our March snow came in October
  22. So in 2 weeks they're going to go from 5000 cases to 4 million?
  23. Now that western countries are getting caught up with testing protocols (South Korea has been in the forefront of proactive testing and their mortality rate is barely 0.5%), you'll see a lot more cases, yet the same amount of deaths, significantly dropping the mortality rate to a more seasonal flu-like level. Heck, when you exclude the nursing home in Washington (which has had documented problems in the past dealing with flu outbreaks there), the death rate here is 0.4%, and we have barely even started testing anyone.
  24. Yes, this paranoia will actually help slow the spread of the seasonal flu.
