  1. Give me 15 or 26 and we can move on to spring.
  2. The coldest i have ever been was in Rangely, ME during SERE School (survival, evasion, resistance and escape). It was -20 air temp and a -70 wind chill. Nothing like evading capture with 6' of snow and snowshoes just to get captured, tortured and freeze all in the name of training. smh.
  3. I was a senior at the Naval Academy getting ready to graduate. They were everywhere. It was nuts. Our class always jokes that we had a natural disaster (Isabelle) and a plague of locusts during our senior year. At least our water didn't turn to blood and we avoided livestock pestilence.
  4. We got a ton of ice and some sleet here in Hollywood. More to come it looks like. My wife bit it on the deck when she took the dogs out.
  5. Icy hell here in SoMD. My wife bit it on the deck when she took the dogs out. Uggs evidently don't do well on ice.
  6. Well, looks like I'll have to take my ice and sit in the corner and color down here in SoMD. Probably in the dark too since we lose power here when a butterfly has gas.
  7. Ice Storm Warning URGENT - WINTER WEATHER MESSAGE National Weather Service Baltimore MD/Washington DC 310 PM EST Fri Feb 12 2021 MDZ016-017-VAZ050-055>057-130415- /O.UPG.KLWX.WS.A.0006.210213T1200Z-210214T1200Z/ /O.NEW.KLWX.IS.W.0001.210213T1200Z-210214T1200Z/ Charles-St. Marys-Orange-Stafford-Spotsylvania-King George- 310 PM EST Fri Feb 12 2021 ...ICE STORM WARNING IN EFFECT FROM 7 AM SATURDAY TO 7 AM EST SUNDAY... * WHAT...Significant icing.

  8. Oh great. An Ice storm warning. I don't think I have ever seen one of those. At least we have 'ol reliable SMECO and Atlantic Broadband. What could go wrong. I upgraded my internet when my wife and I started working from home and my daughter started online school. Double the the price and it got way worse. Today was awful. I have had them out three times and they have replaced everything still no improvement. I'm not the only one on my street with issues so it is upstream. They did credit me three months of service, I asked for three more today. Oh, and I basically live in the forest here so this should be fun. Just give me snow for God's sake.
  9. every now and then. It lets me down 90% the time with all the conjecture.
  10. I have been on these boards for ten years. I put a lot of faith in them for years, but as the season's have progressed, it is a constant buildup with "this data and this data" but it seldom plays out. I am not a meteorologist, i'm a fighter pilot, but we obviously follow the weather. Every storm has been the same. It seldom plays out as modeled. Take last weekend for example. I'm sure someone will say "go to banter" and someone will say " then stop reading the thread". That's fine, i know a lot of you on here have insecurities and that's ok. You definitely have to have a touch of nerd in you to post/read this stuff. I'm starting to think I am wasting my time. Happy Monday.
  11. It's absolutely puking snow down here in SoMD. I think it might be the heaviest snowfall i've seen since leaving Nebraska.
  12. Why does the rain/snow line ALWAYS go through my house in SoMD? I mean always.
  13. Well, headed up to the barn to start my snowblower. I haven't had to use it for two years. I hope she starts!
