    I think I just experienced every form of precipitation known to man in the span of 5 min, plus lightening and thunder. That was awesome!!!!!

    Was enjoying the dry slot on the drive home, now getting pounded. Would have been happy to dry slot the rest of this storm.

    Grading Winter 2018-2019

    I graded this winter a C, If this winter was a student, it started strong with an A + in November, turned in an F in December, January was a B, February a C-, March (so far a C-). Just didn’t live up to its perceived potential. Hit climo, 2 warning events. Guess it could have been worse, so a Solid C.

    Their altitude makes them closer to the sun, makes snow hard to stick on blacktop...

    That right there is the SH!T. Look at those pressures, it’s like black hole low, like a category 73 Hurricane, LOL....thought they adjusted for elevation, guess not....and I went to meteorology school in Greeley, CO, they must have covered that after I dropped out and went south.

    Like Ralphie, I want an A+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++....winter...like 2009-2010, but first we need a real - - - - - - - NAO. I did see a Christmas tree on the curb this last Monday a block down, the shame, and I felt bad taking mine down on Jan 4.

    Winter is officially over, the last parking lot snow pile melted at work today, the neighbors finally took down their Christmas lights on Sunday, and the daffodils are in full bloom. Game, set, match. I give this winter a C.
  9. They had a good one in 2003, was actually there the day after looking for wedding venues, most of it was melted, but still pretty cool. Winter of 2002-2003 will always have a place in my heart. https://www.google.com/url?sa=i&source=web&cd=&ved=2ahUKEwi9lb__uOzgAhWvct8KHUrKBtgQzPwBegQIARAC&url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.wral.com%2Fnews%2Flocal%2Fstory%2F1089941%2F&psig=AOvVaw0cabhHwLuWP9-nJ5YmctEn&ust=1551924923420299

    March 3-4, 2019 Snow Discussion and Obs

    Pouring rain down here in the tropics, awaiting my Flash Flood Warning. System is juicy, good stuff headed your way, good luck to the northern folks!
  11. I actually don’t care what the temp is, I am just sick of the rain. My house, fence, driveway, trees, sidewalk, roof whatever are covered in green gunk, moss, algae, mold whatever. I would be happy with a late cold spell that kills off the bugs just as they are coming out...then give me the southeast ridge centered over SC from April to May that shunts everything north as we bake and dries everything out.
  12. Works for me, the last 3 years Spring has sucked.
  13. I want to track a drought. Once we are out of snow season I want an honest to goodness drought, days upon days of dry weather with zero clouds. When was the last time we had one of those. Bring on water restrictions!

    First measure, 2”. Coming down at a good clip, though just under bright greens.
