    She took a jab at the SE board. I responded and she got all emotional. How is that embarrassing? 

    I agree that the original post could have been interpreted as unnecessary jab at us in the SE, but the mockery of their snow disappointment was poor taste in my opinion.  We had a good day today.  Let's just enjoy the feeling without trying to poop on other's parade.

    And wouldn't that cause -Negative ao since it would just hangout over Greenland after passing up the eastern part of the us ? 

    No.  -NAO means HIGH geopotential heights around Greenland.  A storm hanging out over Greenland would mean low heights there and thus a +NAO.

    That being said, big storms do sometimes hang out in the area around latitude 50 N, longitude 50 W and become what is called a "50/50 low"/  Those can be just as helpful with blocking as well.

    What would stop such a strong low from becoming an app runner ?

    Nothing.  With no blocking it comes down to absolutely perfect timing to keep a storm that amped from cutting to Denver.  That's why its unlikely to go down that way in reality.  Still pretty to look at.
