  1. We use Tauck for all of our vacations. Sailing on the Isabela II. Going with 5 or 6 couples we met on prior Tauck vacations. Just checked airfaires hoping for deals for FirstClass/Business class. WE have Iceland in July which may be the safest country in the world due to their extensive testing.
  2. We have a trip to Galapagos in January via Guayaquil. After reading the Wash Post article today on Ecuador, even January seems a longshot.
  3. We are lucky in Virginia that the golf courses remain open. At this time of year, one can play almost every day. Great for your sanity.
  4. Had heard the horror stories. Walked in to Tysons DMV around 10:05 yesterday and was back in my car by 10:40.
  5. Not often I can say I golfed 18 holes right after, and no more then 15 minutes from the location of a record tying "snowstorm'" 307 SXUS71 KLWX 050229 RERIAD RECORD EVENT REPORT NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE BALTIMORE MD/WASHINGTON DC 928 PM EST WED DEC 04 2019 ...RECORD DAILY MAXIMUM SNOWFALL TIED AT WASHINGTON DULLES DC... A RECORD SNOWFALL OF A TRACE WAS TIED AT WASHINGTON DULLES AIRPORT TODAY. THIS TIES THE OLD RECORD OF TRACE LAST SET IN 2016. WEATHER RECORDS FOR THE STERLING/DULLES VIRGINIA AREA HAVE BEEN KEPT AT WHAT IS NOW WASHINGTON DULLES INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT SINCE 1960. ALL CLIMATE DATA ARE CONSIDERED PRELIMINARY UNTIL REVIEWED BY THE NATIONAL CENTERS FOR ENVIRONMENTAL INFORMATION (NCEI). $$ RCM
  6. Friend in Lansdowne was reporting the torrential rains out there around 7 AM. Told him we only had sprinkles. Around 8, the sky to the west turned black and the torrential rains commenced with a thunder clap or two but no winds.
  7. My first time grading. I think a D. I think a C for the winter but I then drooped it for the golfing impact. The pluses were the early start in November, the11 inches in January, and hitting snowfall averages. The negatives were the disappointments I felt after lurking on the board all winter such as the relatively big snowfall predictions, reading the Euro weeklies are cold the next four weeks, etc. Also because of the early winter start and the continued wetness, I probably golfed less this winter then I have in a long-time. And it continues. Last Monday, Tuesday, yesterday, today and tomorrow, it looks like I will need four layers of clothes, including thermals, to golf which makes it hard to swing a club. And adding insult to injury, my golf trip to Palm Springs and then Vegas had two 90 minute frost delays and the shorts I packed were useless as I needed thermals and pants,
  8. How about the foothills of Salt Lake City? Definitely has (3) and (4) and (1) and (2) are only limited by how far up foothills you want to live. Alta and Snowbird with there 500+ average inches of snow are less then an hour away. Its been a long time since I lived there but there seemed to be snow most of the time from November to April.
  9. I have a question on the daily readings. The CWG reported rainfall of 1.26 inches at Reagan yesterday. If I look at the hour by hour, I get 0.58 by the 11:52 PM reading. The 12:52 AM reading has an additional 0.68 bringing the total to 1.26 as reported. Is this because the additional 0.68 fell in the eight minutes between 11:52 and midnight or possibly because you count the 12:52 readings as the prior day? Or is the 12:52 counted only during DST? It would seem this would also apply to max and min temperatures for each day.
  10. The Norman Golf Course at Lansdowne lies in the flood plane and was built (raised greens and tees) to handle river flooding. Yet, what I saw this afternoon as I rode around was quite an unbelievable sight. The flooding from the river and from Goose Creek inundated so much of the course, reaching greens, covering tee boxes and many paths and bridges under significant amounts of water. A great majority of the course was unaccessible. The flooding of two weeks ago was almost trivial compared to today.
  11. Frost delay at my club out past Dulles until 8:30.
  12. First plowing of our cul de sac. Normally, we are the last to get plowed. About an inch, just west of Tysons off Route 7.
  13. Interesting all these comments. Played 18 holes today and the cold was not bad. Winds were minimal.
  14. What is the most frustrating and/or depressing, IMHO, is that both Amer Wx and DT started honking this storm over a week ago and at least DT said because of the "block" this was a mid-atlantic storm; no way it can go north to NYC or Boston. And now, we are expected tp get bupkis and Boston has a WSW and could get a foot or more!
