    Summer Banter, Observation and General Discussion 2018

    And the recession/depression that is coming is going to be devastating for many. Do your homework and you'll learn that the vast majority of recessions have occurred when a republican has been in office. It's just a matter of time until Trump's policies take down the economy. Perhaps Trump can sell CT to the Russians to help pay for the national debt....or to raise capital for the Wall of bullsh**

    But the majority of people do not post endlessly about them.

    He's gotten the super pattern that he has long wished for but what he has failed to give consideration to is the thought that the super pattern lingers well into the fall and perhaps the winter. Then he will not be writing "It's absolutely been awesome"....in time it is going to change to "It's been absolutely terrible, I do not understand why people want it to be warm in the fall and winter"

    No doubt that the foliage is being hurt by the warmth in the fall. Another incoming this fall.

    Countdown to Winter 2018 -2019

    JB has posted his winter outlook and once again he is calling for a cold and snowy winter in the east. Although he does seem to be leaning towards a "warm" Dec. I find his temp outlook map for the winter to be suspect.

    I agree. Summer is beginning to have that mid to late August feel to it.

    Last night on TWC they were discussing the implications of a tropical system hitting the east. And the main concern they had was because of all the rain that has fallen to date.

    summer banter thread

    I agree with your thoughts regarding always safer to predict AN, In a recent newsletter Larry Cosgrove mentioned something about the need to factor in global warming in to long range forecast. I've never been a fan of using the 30 year data subset. I think it would be better to compare the current to the entire set of data for a particular site. By doing so it will provide a much better representation of temp trends over a longer period of time. I'm also not a fan of using analog years in long term forecasting. And I think the use of analog years is one of the primary reasons why so many long range forecasts fail.

    Yes of course, and the window AC talk that begins on 4/1 every year.

    Probably from the same place you get your stuff regarding an 1816 redux.

    So far the Sox season closely mirrors the season the Dodgers had in 2017. At one point the Dodgers were 91-36. They had a staggering run of 52-9 at one point in the season. At 91-36 it seemed like a lock that the Dodgers would win 115-120 games.....then the roofed caved in. The Dodgers lost 16 out of 17 games. No one could have predicted that stretch of losing. Included in that stretch was a 10 game losing streak which matched the franchise worst losing streak since moving to LA. The Dodgers righted the ship somewhat to finish with 104 wins. And they went on to play in the WS and lost to Houston. What fate lies in store for the Sox?...well they may remain a hot team the rest of the way and break the all time record for wins in a season or they could stumble along the way to the finish line. Regardless of what happens the Sox are going to be under enormous pressure to win once the playoffs begin. And it is going to be interesting to see how the team performs in that white hot cauldron. And you are right the lack of mystery in the game. All of the teams are being run by the stat geeks with a similar mindset. Jayson Werth recently hammered(in an interview) the "super nerds " as he refers to them. Much like the NBA, MLB now features 1 style of play.
