  1. Was a newlywed in '88. Had an older mobile home that baked with a western exposure all afternoon. Was broke after wedding and honeymoon so not even a thought of buying a window a/c unit. Night-time sleep temp inside was 88F with little circulation. Lost a ton of sleep that summer, then had to drive in an old car without a/c to a job on the top floor of an old building with skylights and zero a/c. Had an extreme case of heatwave fatigue when it was done. 113F heat index at KFNT and freeway grass fires in Genesee Cnty. Yeah, nothing will touch '88 for my personal misery index!
  2. UK downgrades C-19
  3. I have to wonder how much of that is the "GRR Effect" via conference/coordination calls, lol. Wrt the underlined portion, the most classic one of those scenarios here from GRR was the 1/29/19 PV storm. After 8.8" and 4 hours of legit bliz conditions from the system itself all under a WWA, they then issued a Warning for the follow-on LES which delivered a whopping 0.5" to most of Calhoun. And to be clear, that map they posted above is misleading as it implies the entire CWA got a warning event, when it could be one single county in the CWA and that qualifies to "reset the clock". Aside from the bogus upgrade mentioned above, and the "false warning" of 1/12/2020 (ice storm that never materialized), I just went 1101 days between legit Warnings here in central Calhoun. During that time there were 2 or 3 storms that met warning criteria easily, no question. But, the office prematurely went WWA and just let it ride. Some (20) WWA's to get to Monday's last-minute upgrade. Remember, this is the office that actually issued a WWA for GHD-2 (verified 18-20" monster storm) before correcting themselves again last-minute. PS- I love my office
  4. Looking 8 or 9-ish here on round 2 plus the 1.1" earlier today. Nice little storm. Fun commute home tonight. Drifting was legit in the countryside. Should be a depth around 14-15". Ready 4 more
  5. 1998-99: 24" That's your target! Good luck over there
  6. Sigh..another "one day in the cone" as my drought of Watch/Warn events looks to continue. Twenty WWA's outta my office (and planning on another with these trends)
  7. fwiw, WPC this afternoon said hell yeah! to a spread the wealth event. Tbh, can't remember seeing one of these with this much +SN at once
  8. Plenty of "stills" out there of the grand daddy of all storms for the Mitt, but it's challenging to find much video of the hardest hit areas during the bliz of '78. WSBT in South Bend would occasionally flash some incredible footage during brief anniversary pieces on air (I lived in S. Bend in '98 for the 20th). This home video is a rare find I stumbled on. This is far southern Michigan not even close to any lake enhancement or contribution. I was about the same age as the kid in the film back then. The blizzard began about 11 pm on Wed, Jan 25th and relinquished sometime Friday morning Jan 27th. There was some additional inches added via LES over the next couple days which is the fluffier snow seen on top in the later portion of the reel. This and Jan '67 are the only 2 CAT-5 storms known for sure in SMI. Jan '99 was a CAT-5 for a very small region in far SWMI fwiw. I would like to experience one as an adult. Where I lived in '78 was actually in a low total zone but with the winds and cold it was still totally memorable.
  9. Wrong thread season has begun..
  10. 14.8" bolstered by the Sunday morning storm. As mentioned by MSF, prior to this past weekend I scratched and clawed my way to dbl digits on the backs of +/-1" snow amounts. Most of which melted in short order. Took until the final day of January to see a plow-worthy snow. I think only Mega-Nino of 82-83 rivals that in my personal life-time. Nice to be tracking more chances.
  11. I've got SEMI beat wrt "most pathetic winter". Y'all don't know what horrid is, trust me.
  12. Really need another legit fringe event. This last one mis-read the memo and dropped "inches" instead of "inch"
  13. Haha yeah. Watch sampling take this to West Branch. Serious tho, we could stand a slight bump or two going forward. RDPS looks whiffy
