  1. I think you're right. That would explain the discrepancy. Any way you look at it, the trends in deaths are the best they've been since the onset.
  2. https://www.coronavirus.in.gov/2393.htm?fbclid=IwAR3CFm09EUk2AjKgLB0aSiJ1AQ65zVhb-lSFPjjhtdqCfhIna0ULNreHLAc
  3. I noticed that for Indiana, the seven day moving average death rate dropped to 4 yesterday. That is the lowest moving average since 3/25/2020 when the pandemic really started to take off. Now cases have been creeping back up, but I really like that the death rate is at 4 a day and still dropping.
  4. IND continues to set records: RECORD EVENT REPORT NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE INDIANAPOLIS IN 721 AM EDT WED APR 21 2021 ...RECORD LOW AT INDIANAPOLIS THIS MORNING... A RECORD LOW OF 26 OCCURRED AT INDIANAPOLIS EARLY THIS MORNING... APRIL 21ST. THIS BREAKS THE OLD RECORD LOW OF 28 DEGREES SET ON THIS DATE IN 1907.
  5. Finished with 4.1" from 0.49" liquid. One of the IWX mets nailed it a few days when he said that it was shaping up to be a one in 50 or 100 year event.
  6. Guys, save your breath. I already responded to him earlier and he blew me off. Might have something to do with relocating from the south to IND. The laughable thing to me is that sometime in the future, ALL advisories are going away.
  7. FWA is obliterating their record snowfall for the date (0.2"-1953). 2.4" at 7:00 (Eastern) and still getting heavy snow.
  8. Pound town. 3.6" and still falling. Top 3 event. Seriously.
  9. Yes, but it certainly would be less deadly if a higher percentage of people just get the vaccine. I do understand and agree with what you are saying though.
  10. With all of the talk of herd immunity, I don't think we'll ever get there, based on local vaccination numbers. Although I live in a rural county, I believe we are a microcosm of vast rural areas of the US as a whole. As of yesterday, 31% of our population age 18+ have been fully vaccinated. Our local shot clinic operated by the County health department can vaccinate ~400 individuals a day. This is in addition to three other pharmacies providing vaccinations. The good news is that 79% of those 65 and older have been vaccinated. However, starting this week, the reservation numbers have dropped dramatically, to the point of shutting down the clinic this Thursday due to lack of reservations (not completely, just for that day.) At this rate, I'm estimating that only a little over 50% of the 18+ age group will be vaccinated by July 1st. Without some emphasis being placed on reducing vaccine hesitancy, this may become the Vietnam of pandemic battles.
  11. Expecting 3" here overnight. I'm sure that after my 7AM CoCoRaHS measurement, it will quickly disappear. However, I am looking forward to the possibility of getting some thunder graupel on Wednesday.
  12. 3"-5" is the official criteria for a snow advisory at IND. However, an advisory is something that is flexible, unlike a warning. It is more at the discretion of the forecaster based on impacts. For example, a 2" snow in November might warrant an advisory, based on being the first possibility of slick roads for the season. In this case, even if 3" falls, they may take into consideration warm pavement temps and not expecting hazardous road conditions to not issue an advisory.
  13. I actually egged that on, as she is a friend of mine. She, like me, loves gardening and is a heat miser. The other day she posted on her FB page, "The forecast is officially disgusting the next week. That is all." I teased her by saying it would make a good Long Term AFD. So for the past two days since she has been working the forecast desk, she has been playing it up in her discussions. As far as the Gordon Lightfoot reference, she grew up in Michigan and is a big promoter of boating and rip current safety on Lake Michigan. I cheer the models on all winter hoping to bullseye, then when mid-April comes and I switch into mushroom hunting, fishing, and gardening mode, I cheer the models on for a miss to the north, so I agree with her not wanting snow at the end of April.
