  1. Just setting up for the great Bristol TN blizzard on NASCAR weekend in April. That would be a disaster. How would they get where they have to go? Oh, wait. They will already be where they are going before they start going there. Nevermind.
  2. You missed it. I posted it on Sept 1 when the first folklore post appeared.
  3. Top Six Southern Winter Folklore Sayings 1. If you count the morning fogs in August you will know how many August mornings were foggy. 2. A heavy crop of acorns will lead to fatter than average squirrels next spring. 3. If it thunders in winter, 10 days later it will have happened 10 days ago. 4. If you study the bands of the wooly worm you will know how many are brown and how many are black. 5. Snow that lays on the ground for more than three days is dirty. 6. A ring around the moon means your Lasik surgeon screwed up.

    I never got the appeal of artificially limited cars going around the same oval 250 times to find out who can be the first one to arrive at where they were when they started.

    February 2019 Observations

    This is an ob of my NWS detailed forecast. For the entire 7 days of the forecast, the word sun or sunny does not appear. I guess it has happened before but I don't recall a time and I'm not looking forward to the next week.

    It is a personnel matter to WRAL but a personal matter to Fishel.

    If the climatic trend continues the peach crop will eventually be impacted by not enough chill hours to produce fruit. Some southern areas have had issues with this in the last few years.

    Southeast Sanitarium - A Place to Vent

    As much as I enjoy a good snowstorm I refuse to complain about today's weather. It was glorious.

    I was in northern NJ and we made Charlotte's 27" look like a flurry.

    I still have problems accepting taking maps 2 weeks out even remotely seriously. A few years ago you would have been tarred and feathered for even posting a single map that far out. I also don't buy how much better the models have gotten as a reason. There hasn't been a single storm that I can remember where we knew three days out what was going to happen. Besides, at my age, you don't look too far ahead. Hell, I don't even buy green bananas.

    Maybe, maybe not. I don't know their schedule but school buses here run in the am dark this time of year. Better visibility is a good thing on possibly questionable roads.

    Post Arctic front snow Tuesday, Jan 29

    That seems to me to be a rather questionable definition of a disaster.
