  1. Heh, put my feeders out during that warm stretch too @mattie g. Only to pull them back in when we dropped in the 20s. No sightings yet, but back out they go. And Amazon was kind enough to deliver a Peterson Hummingbird Field Guide today. :)

    I dunno. I get told plenty by a couple friends that post here that anything pre 1975 is the same as 1675. 

    Easy there fella. That’s like saying our places of residence share the same climo…

    Brutal run…like watching GFS paint dry

    3 straigh southern sliders that won't climb coast. Just an awful winter

    I know, right? A neg temp departure for Jan, almost at climo snowfall, and it’s already Feb 2nd. Thank goodness for the groundhog, or I don’t think I would have any hope left.

    Today is one of my favorite anniversaries in weather history. Top 3 favorite for me all time . Over 36 hours duration.  30-34" . Temps in the teens . And we got another 8-12" later in the week . Plus a clipper I believe. :weenie::weenie:

    Without a doubt.

    Was supposed to leave that Sun for my final semester of undergrad in NC. Being a wx nerd, left NOVA on Sat trying to beat the storm. Didn’t even make it to RIC before I turned around, 95 was a mess. Even then.

    Back in NOVA that night, stopped by the bar my brother was working at to let him know we were about to get shellacked. Then proceeded to the ABC store to buy a bottle of Citron and Aftershock for storm prep. Disgusting.

    Snowed in for a solid week. Dad was in Egypt and Mom was trapped at the hospital. Sister started a fire in the basement and I got to use a fire extinguisher for the first time. As a reward, she got to go to Disney World with my parents a few weeks later because they didn’t trust her home alone. Still bitter about that…

    Watched the mailman get stuck in our cul-de-sac. Watched the tow truck get stuck trying to tow the mailman. And then watched the flatbed take them both away. But not the asshat neighbor who took my parking spot after I spent two days digging my car out. Still bitter about that too…

    Good times for sure, thanks for posting!

    Hi!  Yea I'm not too far from the airport but finally got my own weather station so I can now compare my info to Dulles since I am usually a degree or 2 warmer than the airport. 

    You can also see real time IAD flight weather data on this link: http://www.iadasos.org/IAD/index.html. very helpful as it updates every minute.  

    Down to 38.8/19.8

    The UHI problem is well-known and accounted for in larger-scale analyses.

    This summer wasn't super hot, but it shouldn't have been based on where the ridge set up in the west.  It is actually kind of sad that we didn't end up below normal.  I think the late season humidity also skewed perception of the summer.

    Dude, it’s like you heard the conversation Watergrandpa and I had yday. Eerie.
