    Major Hurricane Florence

    That's what I am thinking as well. In my opinion, it will ultimately come down to the forward speed as it approaches.

    Major Hurricane Florence

    Right now, my money is on the EPS. And if I was in Myrtle Beach, I would be very worried. Just not buying into the GFS craziness. Also, there is nothing to keep this beast from going to CAT 5.

    Agreed, I don't put as much weight into it as I once did.

    Winter 2018-2019 Speculation

    My father had the best peach and pear season that he has had in the past 20 years. I can confirm the bumper fruit crop. Got a good feeling about this winter, if we can get a little El-Nino action started.

    August 2018 Observations

    Mowed my wet yard yesterday too. I can attest to the clumps of cut grass everywhere. Got finished just before it rained again. Weeds have over-taken my garden. It's been too wet to get out in it and weed. Maybe the drier weather this week will allow me to get some work done in it.

    Winter 2018-2019 Speculation

    Oh heck yeah, I would rather have snow TV at 35 degrees than rain at 33 anytime. However, I don't think that's what the map is implying.... That being said, it doesn't reflect the current projected winter pattern in any way. That looks more like a global-warming version of a cold neutral.

    Avoiding Hothouse Earth

    Well said.... I don't believe the science is settled. Oh, I understand the CO2 science very well, I just don't believe that it is the only game in town. To exclude other forcing is not smart.

    Arctic Sea Ice Extent, Area, and Volume

    Not reliable data.... No way.

    Arctic Sea Ice Extent, Area, and Volume

    This is a critical time for tracking ice levels. What are they changing/replacing/adjusting? If the data comes in grossly different after the so-called "maintenance", there will be a lot of skeptical folks out there.

    2017 Mountains and Foothills Fall/Winter Thread

    I can sum it up in three words.... We HATE summer. There are a few exceptions. Homegrown tomatoes, fishing, and watching the grand kids catching fireflies. Oh yeah almost forgot, watching distant lightning on a summer night.

    2013 was a good summer for the arctic sea ice. Lets hope the pattern up there this melt season will be similar.

    APRIL 2018 OBS

    Wow, it's been rainy, overcast and cool all day here. Different world out there. Don't worry, you will get in on the action tomorrow.

    I have always wanted to witness a year without a summer. However, sorry to say, we can't avoid the inevitable heat that's coming.

    I already miss chasing fantasy snowstorms. It's going to be a long 6 months. Can we just fast-forward to Fall?
