  6. Fellows: We need urgent prayer for Big Frosty (Rodney). He and his wife both contracted COVID about a month ago and he cleared it after a brief hospitalization and was back at work. Unfortunately, the side effects came back last night with blood clots in the lung and pneumonia. He is hospitalized today but not in ICU. Rodney asked that he will appreciate prayer from everyone for a quick recovery. There is no one else that has a higher level of interest in winter weather and knows his local climatology the way Big Frosty does. To all, thank you for taking the time to be prayer warriors. It is gratefully appreciated. Thank you.
  7. Joe Bastardi put out an extremely warm initial call map for the East today +3 everywhere in East and 75% of normal snowfall.
  8. It’s all about humidity control. Even though upper 50s to mid 60s can be prevalent the dew points can remain high. A separate dehumidifier in the system can help
