  1. Ten minutes of pingers about an hour ago. I always know when sleet occurs. Skylights are the best sleet detectors made! Otherwise...all rain here...just drizzle now.
  2. What a great day. Worked up a sweat washing the SUV, while my two cats lounged on the screened porch for the first time since early November. Got to 70° in the house thanks to huge casement windows. We may still average below normal after all is said and done this month, but man, again...what a great day. Spring is here as far as I'm concerned.
  3. lol...only three? Yeah the full gfs run looks nice. Just wondering when we had three nasties in a row...I know some of you can point to something for me
  4. So, looking ahead...when's the last time we had three disgusting winters in a row?
  5. Which begs the question...what happens first....the GFS going pay-per-view or the Euro going free to all?
  6. I'm a rare poster, especially here in a SNE thread. That said, I never thought I'd say this, and it's the first time in the 14 years I've lived up here that I have...but I'm ready for spring. Out on the covered screened in porch with the cats lying lazily in the sun, watching the birds, squirrels and chipmunks that I keep well supplied with sustenance. The smell of freshly mowed grass. The trees that totally hide my house in the warm season. Here it is late January and I have about 4-5 inches of....I don't even want to call it snow, really...on the ground. The couple inches that might fall Monday are irrelevant. It, and this...stuff...on the ground, will be wiped out by Thursday. I moved up here from the Florida Panhandle after living there for 18 years for some real winter. One disappointing season I can handle...two in a row cuts like a knife. I just hope this summer isn't a scorcher. If there's one thing I hate worse than a dead ratter of a winter it's excessive heat in the summer...another reason I left Florida. There, I feel better...my first meltdown is over.
  7. Hey, just to point out...I'm the "nice" Mr. 57 posts...no confusion please!
  8. You know, until I found this board, I had no idea there were other people so emotionally invested in the weather as I am. I mean, the raw emotion that comes through in a lot of posts is quite the palpable experience. Hobby (other than the red tags), obsession? Not sure how to label it. In any case, I'm mostly a professional lurker here. While I know more meteorology than the average man on the street, it pales in comparison to even a random sampling of folks on here, so...I listen and absorb with not too much to add as useful insight above and beyond what is posted. In any case...carry on
  9. Thanks QVman. I'm a pure lurker here on SNE discussion being in NNE, but it seems to me that you, HM and TT get very little response to your informative posts. I, for one, appreciate them.
