    Great post Buffalo. I appreciate all of the info you put together. Let's get this thing back on track!
  2. The 2017-18 Ski Season Thread

    We skied Windham (NY) today. Arrived to overcast, low 30's at 10:00, by 10:30 the sun was out and we had a day of beautiful spring skiing. Corn out in the sun, nice soft powder in the shade. Healthy crowd, but never more than 10 minutes to get on a lift. Man are they in trouble later this week though. Natural cover is very thin, even the snowmaking trails started getting muddy spots in the sun today, and there's two days of rain incoming. I feel for them, that's the last thing they need in mid-January.

    We're headed to Stowe for 5 days beginning February 1. I'm not feeling the love right now........

    I'm in northern Otsego county and as Han Solo said "I got a bad feeling about this." I need this thing to keep bumping east to get me out of the maximum icing zone. Gas cans filled, generator ready but really don't want to be dealing with that during a major winter storm with plunging temps and strong winds.

    Yeah get on that once it warms up today. About 12 years ago I woke to the sound of water dripping down our bedroom wall. It ain't fun once that happens.

    Pamela Anderson sized bust here on the synoptic event. I see about an inch outside.

    I just woke up to come to work in northern Otsego county.....practically needed a blowtorch to get the ice off the car. Unsafe to ambulate without ice skates on.

    Tell me what's more depressing winter weather than the current 34F and drizzle at my place. Go ahead, I dare you.

    Yeah the Tug demands respect. We've done extensive travel in snow all over the northeast to back country ski. We've been through big snowstorms in the Adirondacks, the Greens but I've never felt actual fear like I felt on the Tug when the lake effect started cranking along with the wind. It is truly desolate in areas and can be very intimidating. The danger is real.

    Anyone else here deer hunt? Next Saturday looks heinous for opening day.

    Daytime high of 30F here. Impressive for this time in November.

    I'm at work now, looks like an inch or so here in Cooperstown. Perfect mood setter to start the season off.

    I'm north of BGM and I think the cold shot 10/27 will be enough to put some flurries in the air.

    Appropriate for the new thread, our first 32F reading this morning.
  15. Tropical Season 2017

    I shake my head when I come look at this forum and see incredibly informative posts from mets and some informed amateurs, and the total lack of respect given to them by the wish casters. How much disrespect are the mets in this forum willing to take? It seems quite a lot.
