  1. I thought this as soon as i learned of when it happened. Its no silver lining whatsoever, but the human impact could have easily been in the 100's. not trying to start conspiracy, but that ship was well left of the green channel beacon. Hoping no malicious intent. Thinking of all that are or will be impacted. In other news....I mowed yesterday. First and last mow report for season, but I'm "on the board"....lol Happy Spring all. Coulda snowmobiled in Tug Hill this past weekend but hosted family for Easter (my side), so sleds never made it north for a second year straight.
  2. with AO/NAO heading solidly -, it just has to be enough to bring boundary south enough. Add the PNA showing slightly +, it might be enough to get the trough far enough south, and while your point is a good one, I'm pulling for earlier the better....cause ya know...."too warm today for it to snow tomorrow", or "sun angle", or "warm ground wont hold any snow" stuff...which becomes increasingly more true by the day in MORCH
  3. as suggested last week, it'd likely be till this week for models to start reacting to better indicies, and I'm hoping the 6z GFS is a result in better signals being advertised and not a mirage...
  4. and maybe PSU can use extra jingles to keep tuition down...... ok...that sounded good....but that has about a snowballs chance at surviving a winter in Central Pa....
  5. Its just smart business, and based on what i know about Beaver stadium, and costs associated with going to see something there, quite a large cash cow.
  6. Sno biz folk cant really cash in much by April. Man do I feel for those folks. Smart businesses realize that snow biz can mean no biz, and are stating to encourage other non snow dependent activities to support them during other seasons. its happening in much of Pa. Denton hill ski area is under new ownership and has suggested that theyll have other non snow season acitivities to attract business. Good idea.
  7. yep. MJO not as good a signal, but those three appear to he headed in a nice direction. Gotta see if MJO mutes that good look. Prob will be a week till ENS guidance starts to show its hand IMO.
  8. it would be sooo fun.... oh and the curling would all over the place, but prob fun as well.
  9. all good here bud. thx. yeah its cirlcles at best now. my group just got back from maine last friday. said it was passable, but thin. Hoping that march signals are correct and i can get my son up north, further north (tug), or waayyy north (maine) if needed.
  10. So if I were to start a league, it'd be like bowling league, but there'd be a bonfire, weeners and beer. Like how I play floor hockey, I do it for the hydration therapy that follows (pub less than mile from where we play). Good times w/ great friends.
  11. Glad you got up. I missed that period and thought we'd have more opps coming. Last 2 weekend peeps have been able to play on top, but not in lower elevations. Oh well, at least they are ready for next season (just put new batteries in both last week....not cheap). Hope all's well w/ you Kirby. I miss running the TC and web stuff from years past. Got to know a lot of good folks doing it. A fun group but no longer worth the time/effort...for me anyways.
  12. Try this instead . US is way behind in the love for this game. If we had sufficient cold, I'd do it....with beer in hand for counterbalance of course.
  13. 23 for me, and spotty snow remains, but likely fades fast today.
  14. Tellies would argue otherwise. AO/NAO headed neg in early march, and PNA on the rise, says slow your role spring...MJO and poss SSW also thrown into mix says not so fast. What's the truth, I dunno, and once into mid march, I typically dont really care. If it cant snow, and stick around (which gets harder by the day....damn sun angle, I'm ready to move onto spring. Yes, i just said it. Harley has much better ROI fun wise, and while i love a wintery day like yall do, we've definitely wasted some prime time and the cold has been around, but not deep (as others have suggested in winter grading that's coming out). We've had much more winter than last year, so I'm ready to chalk it up as a minor victory and move along. I didn't get up north w/ sleds once again, although my bad as there's been about 5 weekends that one coulda rode up there. Not great but better than last year.
  15. BTW, closing in on 3" here with beautiful light snow still falling at 8:30. I'll take it.
  16. And I will defend them on this one as modeling closed in, it looked to be a tricky forecast and localized areas verified, while other locals didnt. We were adequately warned IMO. Again, the average joe doesnt really care about being 1-2" short of verification, they just wannna know whats possible. Their backyard falls short (like mine), but within a short distance, totals are double or notably more. See I'm all about fairness.
  17. nice pics. Happy early birthday. Probably 2.5 here in akron. Nice little event event and happy for the lucky ones Blizz and berks it sounds like.
  18. Opened my mouth too soon. Lull here at airport.
  19. Waiting to pick up wife’s coworkers at HIA. It’s Snowing here. Don’t let them tell you otherwise. T already in da books.
  20. Sure is nice to set a higher bar as we close in on go time. As most qpf maps seeme to be in the .3-4 range, thats gotta be 15:1 or better to achieve, and it appears that we've got a favorable thermal/forcing profile to have a whack at this verifying. Happy Friday gang. Hoping nooners start the weekend prep off w/ a bang.
  21. So once again I say.....right where we want it. At least we'll get a few more days of wintery feel round here. I'm taking that as a win. Enough uncertainty being shown on the Ops to keep an eye out for late next week as well. IF we can score 1 or 2 more after tonight, this winter will be a B+ final grade for me. I'm at a C+ (including tonight 2-4 which is what I've been hoping and expecting for a couple days).
  22. CMC gonna be a tick north. Not gonna hurt us, but lets see how much it helps.
