  1. Yeah, my weather station reported 7 gusts of 40 or more. Four of them between 6:10 and 6:40 pm. Had to go out and gather up the yard furniture.
  2. This settles it. You can’t argue with a guy who’s very name is math I don’t understand.
  3. I agree with your point about long drives but the main issue with overtime is fairness. Guaranteed red zone chances would be more fair than the current setup.
  4. It certainly better than the NFL.
  5. Damn, how embarrassing would it be to be killed by an avalanche in Raleigh NC.
  6. I see a problem here. The program seems to be stuck in a loop. Besides it is never completely fair. If team one scores team two knows it now does not have to worry about punting on fourth down so it has 4 plays to get each first down on its drive instead of three.
  7. OK so team one gets the ball for the second time and scores again. Is that it?
  8. OK. Let’s say they match it. Tied again. Now what?
  9. I wasn’t trying to start a climate discussion. My comment was basically a tongue in cheek tidbit about years of Raleigh posters moaning about gradiants and being screwed several tines a winter.
  10. Now that things have concluded I will respond to this. Perhaps the bolded is true but I can tell you from years and years in this forum that many long time residents of Raleigh think it is a colder and snowier climate than it is
  11. Well that is definitely good news. Time marches on and if it is a once in a generation storm we are just about overdue.
  12. Carrying that logic to distance it is further from Greensboro to Miami than it is from Greensboro to Portsmouth Maine. Let’s add them.
  13. Crapfest here. Ground is white but less than an inch. Sleeted most of the day but never at a heavy rate. Sad thing is we actually had real winter storm temperatures for a change. Started out at 21º this morning and after lunch it slowly climbed to what it is currently, 28º. Congrats to all who scored enough to make it worth the time tracking.
  14. Man I didn’t want to hear this. Raleigh is usually right about this type event but damn I hate ice. Models are coming into better agreement with the details, and confidence is increasing that this will be less of a snow event and more of a freezing rain/rain event.
  15. I think it is terrible how many Mets have to take second jobs just to make ends meet.
  16. Damn kvegas, what makes you think you can forecast weather when you can’t even handle time.
  17. Interesting. I feel this is our best shot for the winter. In case no one noticed the average high temp at PTI yesterday was 47.8º. Today it is 47.9º. That’s right, yesterday on average was the coldest day of the year. We need to get our snow now because the temps have started their long climb toward our 88.1º summer.
  18. I know this is late but I’ve been out all day. I don’t think you’re making the correct read on the graphic. It is not a “don’t let perfect get in the way of good” kind of graphic. Quite the opposite. By using values like 22%, 27% etc. instead of just rounding them to the nearest 5 they have made it an “imitation of accuracy to 1% without corroborating data” kind of graphic.
  19. And that is why starting a storm thread six days out is not a good idea.
  20. NADA Saturday NWS Forecast for Banvile NC - A chance of rain after 1pm. Mostly cloudy, with a high near 41. Chance of precipitation is 40%.
  21. Another lie of this magnitude and there will be serious consequences.
