  1. PV will get weird in March and April as has been the new pattern and sag down to give you some cold air to connect with gulf moisture to give you guys some monster heavy wet storm totals that will melt in 24 hours or so. The days of being able to maintain any sort of a snowpack at 40 north are firmly over I’m afraid.
  2. I honestly didn’t think we’d get the column saturated when I went to bed around 12, just couldn’t force a flake out of it. Must have been some magic in that old top hat as I woke up to a healthy inch/inch and a quarter snowpack refresher here NE of RFD.
  3. over/under on likelihood of event caliber that allows you to write a special post event article? https://www.weather.gov/lot/2011blizzard
  4. like was mentioned yesterday, RFD always does reasonably well, I feel like I get lucky more than my fair share. feeling okay with trends being in lot northern tier, although I do think biggest totals will be between I88 and I80. So with that I need to boost my snowpack. Laid down a nice manmade base with the consistent cold leading up to Christmas, then Mother Nature filled everything in and has kept fairy dust refreshing me a 1/2” to an 1” at a time. Given today’s cold I figured better be safe and make sure I can hold on to my snowpack until Memorial Day, so I’m making snow for the first time since Christmas. Hopefully we get lucky over the next 96 hours or so and I end up with a ridiculous base. I’ll post pics if it happens.
  5. whatever happened with your greenhouse thing you built in the OG Morch? Up in Saukville right? iirc you kind of got ran out of here with all the constant torch talk....
  6. Winter lovers unite in the war of trees. Boreal forest for the win.
  7. always been a dream to go to Hokkaido and ski the famous japow
  8. To be fair my anecdotal feeling is from this past year or two. Several of the severe threats in the spring/summer they didn’t discuss, warnings were late or non existent, etc. We have a handful of mission critical “properties” in the ILX cwa, tors are an annual threat and we get a hit or near hit pretty much every year. While I live in LOT I read the ilx afd’s daily during severe season, it’s just one of those things where you can just feel something is up. Maybe it was covid issues etc manifesting in the office operations, maybe I was being too critical. I don’t mean to be too hard on them/the guy, probably shouldn’t have said anything.

  10. I keep looking for a zzzz or bank clock reference in the LOT afd’s but you haven’t thrown us a bone yet...
  11. Not to be mean, not knowing the guy at all, but my mind immediately went to wondering if some new leadership may be the cure for that office.
  12. Took me a while to get the science dialed in, I’ve spent the last 3 months laying down mostly ice, but I finally got it a few weeks ago and with last weeks cold was able to lay down a nice base with my homemade snow gun. The past few days are eating into it, but it looks to hold on for the most part until Christmas when the cold should give me a chance to refresh. Can’t just rely on ma nature for the fz precip. Pic is of some little jumps in the “terrain park” the kids have been jamming on.
  13. Ma nature isn’t giving up the goods here in N IL / S WI, but she’s finally delivering a little cold. Granite Peak up in Wausau opened last week, now the S WI hills and even Chestnut in Galena IL are getting a base layer down, just about everybody is opening some limited terrain this weekend. Chairs spin at Alpine Valley tomorrow.
