  1. I know here that here at least, they schedule people in the high-risk classes based on the time frame that the site is open. However, the vials usually contain a little more than the number of doses that is supposed to be in them. By combining residual vaccine, they can squeeze out several more doses. So rather than waste it, they grab anyone they can to come in at the end of the day to get vaccinated. In our case, they have complied a list of city, county, school employees, and other "essential" residents to call when they determine how many doses they are going to have left at the end of the day.
  2. As a first responder, I got my first Moderna shot today. I'm very happy.
  3. 5.8" here for the season. Only 4 days with an inch or more of snow cover, 3 in December and 1 so far in January. The deepest snow depth: 2" that only lasted for a few hours. It's just amazing the difference between here and points north and west. Many places haven't had much more snow than Northeast IN, but have held their snow cover an almost ridiculous amount of time.
  4. Yet another virga storm ongoing in NE Indiana. If virga counted as snow, we'd be well over two feet for the winter. Top down saturation FTL
  5. I never put 2 and 2 together, but you're probably right. As far as the Bam guys and their ilk, I've coined the phrase Social Mediaologists.
  6. Very soon the issue will be the logistics of getting shots in the arm and not availability of vaccine.
  7. I work in emergency management/Homeland Security. I got hooked on weather as a seven-year-old when my dad took me out the day after the Palm Sunday outbreak and we followed the path of the F-4 that passed through a few miles north of our house. I got into emergency management as a result of my love of weather. I like storm spotting and doing the occasional chase.
  8. Whoa! Just tried to get caught up here and thought I'd accidentally clicked on one of the EC subforums. My only observations for the FWA area is to prepare for a kitchen sink storm. Now back to your regular scheduled model watching.
  9. I just received an e-mail from IWX stating that NWSChat will be down for planned maintenance on Monday from 10 AM - 1 PM EST. They couldn't have timed it more perfectly.
  10. As we discussed last night, I don't think the IWX forecaster was off base when he discussed marginal temps, at least for FWA. I am seriously rooting for a Euro score for all of the posters in Iowa, No IL/ORD (including hoosier) and Detroit. I will enjoy my cold rain/ice/flakes. All of us Indiana posters south of US 30 will have to depend on the trailing wave to deliver.
  11. Okay, I understand what you're saying. However, ORD is in a better position than FWA. It still looks marginal to me for mby, at least until the last wave rolls through mid-late next week.
  12. The afternoon forecaster at IWX sings an all too familiar tune concerning Sunday-Tuesday: THE KEY FOR WHETHER THIS BECOMES A MORE SIGNIFICANT STORM LOCALLY WILL BE IF BLOCKING RELAXES JUST ENOUGH FOR LATER DAMPENING OF THE MAIN SOUTHERN STREAM WAVE. A TYPICAL THREAD THE NEEDLE SET UP THAT WE'VE SEEN THE LAST SEVERAL WINTERS WITH ONLY MARGINALLY COLD AIR TO WORK WITH. SO, NOT A LOT OF CONFIDENCE AT THIS RANGE WITH BROADBRUSH MID CHANCE POPS (RAIN & SNOW) IN THE GRIDS FOR NOW.
  13. I'm already counting on it happening. Our largest snowfall of the season will be on March 23th (channeling some Brian D.).
  14. Six straight hours of snow and still snowing. Total accumulation? zero A microcosm of the winter of 2020-21 here.
