    Low of 68 and currently 72/63. Looks like the bulk of the storm activity down this way may not occur until very late evening or overnight. May somewhat limit severe, as Canderson mentioned. 

    Most mesos seem to favor I80 north, and show a skook split of sorts with SE Pa getting some late action.  Any water in bucket would be appreciated.  The .14 I tallied the other day did very little for my scorched earth that formerly identified as a lawn.

    Outside of saturday, when I look at those temps in aggregate I kind of feel like the heat wave was a bit underwhelming. Safe to say the Euro was overdone? We declaring a model winner with this one?

    I'd take the past weeks heatwave anytime....

    Saturday did moderately suck though....

    I fully expect the next statement to bite me in the ass but for a year that they're predicting record numbers of tropical systems we sure are starting damn slow.

    If memory serves, prior 2 seasons were also supposed to be Epic....


    Got home from cabin work weekend, and watched some youtube vids.  Saw my first prediction of a cold and snowy winter en route to the east...I chuckled aloud.  

    Just like the heat and hurricanes, just a lot of hot air keeping the nothinburgers warm.

    I don't often talk about personal things but life over the past few months has had it's share of struggles. Last night our son was in a pretty bad accident. He's kind of a mess right now but ultimately will be fine.

    Another reminder of the fragility of life.

    last 2 years have been full uf em for me with parents. 

    Glad he will be ok.  Hang in there bud.

    yeah looks like next couple days we do get hotter, and likely enough to cook eggs on asphalt (so dont sit down on pavement boys).

    headed north and will see how high the pine creek is tonight.  Work weekend at cabin.

    Like others have already suggested, evenings have been rather tolerable, but if DPs get a tad higher, that'll be the end of that.

    In summer, I have our thermostat set at 75 during the day and 72 at night. Winter it's 67 during the day and 64 or 65 at night. 

    Between new tin roof and new windows, i do pretty well on heating & cooling costs.

    Modified for my almost exact info to share.

    I agree with this sentiment. The first 3 days of the great heatwave of 2024 has not matched the hype and honestly, a lot of local forecasters predictions. What might ultimately be remembered after the fact us the duration and not the intensity.

    Though...I reserve the right to change my mind at high noon on Sunday sitting in Citizens Bank Park...

    Hey all.  I'm just stopping in to see how everyone is surviving the summer solstice heatwave of 2024...lols, and after reading a few posts regarding how underwhelmed some are, I'm glad I'm not alone.  Feels like normal summer to me.  Now the precip side....that's a tad light, and more concerning for farmers with young crops in fields....and eventually the water tables. 

    Happy summer to all.

    My experience is that X is a lot more, uh, I wish I knew how to say this differently... uh... racist, from when it was Twitter. Now granted that's what you're going to get when the twins are taken off the horse, but Jesus Christ, I can't scroll two minutes without seeing radio personalities throwing slurs around like their commas. 


    Other than that, no other differences lol 

    While I dont have a current twitter account (never was worth a subscription to me), the little I get from it isn't too dissimilar to the little I got from it before.

    Yeah, its not moderated - censored like it once was, but I'm no fan of one sided slander, and if were gonna play that stupid game, let both sides have at it (mind you, I'm no fan of the trash talk, and wish there could be sensible dialog....but please show me where that exists in this digital age?? I dont see it anywhere, but maybe I'm just snakebit as to where to find truth anymore....but I look at a myriad of sources in search of....

    Bias is all to prevalent, and is rather disheartening when the masses deserve the truth...

    rant over, 

    Its gonna rain today.  

    Hope y'all are doing well.

    No, in all honesty it's a trash app, that the only engagement you get is if it's something political, or troll your most hated sports team. 

    which is different from when it was Twitter?....lol

    A saving grace is the time of day this happened, I guess. No comfort at all to those directly impacted, but an ever greater catastrophe was averted. Dear god if this happened at 5pm. 


    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.

    The 10th seems a little soon, but your point nonetheless is correct. 

    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

    Yep, a lot of PA ski areas are now year-round destinations offering paint ball, ropes courses, scenic chair lift rides, etc. It's all about maximizing the potential cash cows at all sorts of different venues. They're doing the same thing at PSU with Beaver Stadium - they have the 2nd largest stadium in the US and have only used it for a total of 8 events a year...7 fall games and the spring game. Now, here come the concerts and other opportunities to add revenue. 

    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.

    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.

    I saw this morning that you mentioned the teleconnections turning favorable in March.

    The GEFS & EPS both show the AO & NAO going negative by the end of the first week of March.





    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.

    we're good here hope you and the family are also well.  we could have went up a few more times but I'm not into running circles on top the mountain.  we're trying to plan a trip for the first week in March to either Maine or Ontario.  Maine isn't looking good at this time and although Ontario just got some good snow I'm not sure what to think for that area by then either.  just have to wait and see I guess.  

    I do miss TC.  there's a group on facebook that kinda took the place and its a good place to go for trail info but facebook isn't my favorite site to visit.

    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.

    I'm about 30 years too young for shuffleboard, ice or otherwise.

    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.

    we were up once back in Jan. and it was better than I anticipated.  a little thin in the low areas but pretty nice on top.  worth the trip.

    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.

    Sounds like it would be like playing tennis with a candlepin bowling ball.

    Which, outdoor bowling sounds like it would be fun. Absolutely everything would be ruined by the cold; the resin would react differently to a freezing cold lane, the oil would coagulate, the ball's core would react differently and wind would affect the ball's path. Now I want to grease a rich person to build an outdoor alley and actually use the machines to it.

    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.
