    LAF actually fighting at 32. Just took a short walk and there are some nice slick spots where there isnt any leftover salt.

    Fall/Winter 2018-19 Complaint/Banter Thread

    This is a fallacy I see thrown around a lot here. An average summer feels "like summer" here because that's what we are used to. If there was someone who was a "heat lover", who thought that summer should be constant 90+ degree days like they have in Texas, then they would be pretty upset about how "un-summer like" the typical summer is around here. They might make the same argument that beavis made and say that "the heatwave back in June was the only 2 weeks of real summer we've had. The other weeks have only been a disgrace". In fact, they may be used to the winters we get in the Midwest and say "90% of days in the winter feel like winter! In January and February it's winter-like because the calendar says so. Why can't summers do that here?" If we set our expectations for something that just doesn't happen climatologically, then we will get disappointed. Every single year. The only solutions are to A. move to Phoenix/Houston or Mt. Rainier/Alaska or B. Accept normal, and enjoy a nice 60 degree winter day when it comes (go outside maybe?).

    Late January-Early February Clipper Train

    Been snowing for about 3 or so hours now. Flake size has been fairly small the whole time, but recently it's been pouring. About an inch down so far.

    Might be cool to make a map of (Record HI - Record WC). Especially if there is enough data to plot it worldwide. The results could be interesting

    January 24 - 31 Cold Blast

    I've seen -36F thrown around a lot as the record coldest in Illinois. Is the -37 in Rochelle in 2009 not counted? Sorry I'm not familiar with how records are determined/validated.

    Hybrid Clipper Event 1/27-1/29

    -SN picked up again in LAF. All the melted water froze into a thin sheet of ice quickly after the frontal passage, roads are pretty bad and I almost slipped several times on the sidewalks. With the careening temperatures and the howling winds outside, it really feels like how I'd imagine the Arctic. Very harsh weather.

    About an inch or so, with bare spots. Grass is poking through.

    Winter Storm? Jan 18-19th, 2019

    Lafayette checking in... this is brutal lol. But we stayed snow all day except for a brief period of sleet mixing in in the morning so I can't complain too much.

    SREF plumes at LAF are pretty funny. Solutions all over the place and somewhat evenly spread too.
