    Let's Talk Winter!!

    Yep.....may be the last flakes we see before next winter....everything melting at mid-day as it falls....but a nice post card to dream of storms to be....way down the road!!!!

    I am waving the white towel. We have a pool and lots of trees. I have pumped water off the pool cover four times this winter....and lost count of how many times I've fished leaves off the top. Now the yard is a war zone of limbs and twigs....and the pool has more leaves in it than water......ready for a long spate of calm, sunny....warm spring days. Time to look for a condo in Marquette, Michigan. I'll have to find a new wife though....mine would never go.

    At this rate....our yard and fields won't dry out till summer. Mother nature sure likes to challenge.

    I have followed weather all my life, even as a kid, and winter and snow have been one of my top passions. I will hit 70 later this year and have discovered at least one immutable truth. Anticipating snow season and your favorite baseball team's season have one thing in common....a lot of hope...followed by mostly heartbreak!

    Alright Buckeyes/ Hoosiers and those close by....after five days of inactivity in this forum....time to wake up and smell the snow again.....digital snow that is:

    But...."We'll always have Paris".....I mean the Euro run from a week and a half ago showing 27 inches of snow on the ground and minus -20's. Digital winter...the only kind we ever get in Ohio!

    Ditto here in Bellbrook. Woke up at about 12:30 and looked out side and have never seen such ferocity of snow fall and wind. The entire outdoors was white....no need to even turn on an outdoor light. We ended up with about 5 or 6 inches here....wind blown so hard to tell. Started shoveling at 6:15 and it was 15 degrees. Finished at 7:30 and it had dropped to 7. In retrospect....if yesterday's .92 inches of rain would have been snow....we would have been dead on with the original model runs showing a foot and a half. Oh well....with the pattern we are in....no doubt more chances to come. The remnants of last weekend's ten inches absorbed the rain with the temperature never getting above 33 yesterday. It is solid ice under the latest snow. The snow/ice cover should last into March....rare territory for southern Ohio indeed.

    We're all rain in Bellbrook.....southeast of Dayton and about 15 miles south of I-70.....not seen a flake. We were epicenter of the snow last weekend with almost a foot...so getting shafted on this one doesn't feel so bad. Not expecting more than 3 or 4 tonight in the defo...if it shows up. Set the bar low.....I say. Maybe the trailer on the cold front later next week will be kinder to us. Need some solid white for the big arctic outbreak next weekend....if it still happens.

    Our local CBS affiliate....WHIO....is really getting precise. Dividing Montgomery County. Northern 3/4 get 6-10 of all snow......the southern 1/4 get 4-6 with taint. I ride the line.....or is that walk the line as Johnny Cash sang?

    The severe arctic out break for this time period has been teased by some models for over a week now. This run of the Euro would rival the great arctic outbreaks of all time for much of the nation......dare I even say....February 1899? Just incredible.....

    The GFS3 seems a tick north too.....not a terrible track....but the WTOD does take rain to I-70 for a few hours.....looks decent on the back side. Low hits the wall just south of the river....and scoots int WVA.

    It you work for ILN NWS office you probably are reaching for the Maalox.... If I was a forecaster...I would never have put that map out they did in the early morning run. Too many unknowns to put that out there.

    Been snowing heavily in Bellbrook for the last hour. About a half inch or so added to the glacier.

    Yes....I think the noon sniffings by the models want to ramp (phase) the storm up....but at this point it hits the 5.7 billion dollar border steel fence we quickly erected south of the Ohio River....and is diverted away from Ohio.

    The GEFS at noon is nearly identical in Central Kentucky in its progression and ends up b- lining it for West Virginia. This part is definitely north of earlier runs which had it sinking ESE somewhat. Most likely this just means the ensemble members with a suppressed look are vanishing. Still if that ensemble run happens we should be in pretty good shape....at least if that would end up the actual track.
