    I didn't mean it.

    [email protected] having at least 50% chance of rain at RDU from 5am Wed morning until about 5pm Sat evening. 84 hours. Remember when we had to worry about droughts around here? I think the last one was back in the 90's, but I'm sure someone in here will post some data in the past 5 years to prove me wrong.

    Southeast Sanitarium - A Place to Vent

    Rant begin: Right now is supposed to be the middle of winter which means in theory the coldest of the cold should be happening right now and I know we just had the polar vortex in the Midwest but it didn't really get down here and my NWS forecast shows 60's for highs for the next 7 days and I'm so depressed and when that happens I start not caring about run-on sentences and punctuation and how about I just turn off my heat for a week so I don't have a high power bill because we might as well have some damn benefit to this torch pattern and how about I start looking for job openings in FL if I wanted 60 F&%'in degrees in winter for a whole week. Rant ended (thank you for your time).

    Yea, but just how accurate is the CMC at day 18??? I feel like it tends to dig too much at that range and we lose the storm around day 16. But that's just me. On the other hand, if it shows a storm at day 15, you might as well start the thread now.

    The discussion thread just threw out a term I don't think I've ever heard/read before. What the heck does 'anafontal' mean?

    You picked the perfect avator BTW.

    I read the same forecast as you, and actually took it as a good sign since RAH usually doesn't forecast temps that low 6+ days in advance. Now watch to see if they introduce chance of precip in the next 24 hours. (doesn't matter what type yet, baby steps)

    Here to pile on. That might be one of the worst(if not THE worst) non calls in a pivotal part of a playoff game I've ever seen. I honestly think the Saints would have won if the refs hadn't blown it. On another note, not nearly as cold at KC as they were thinking earlier last week. Instead of single digits, it's just in the teens. Still not too shabby, but nothing like the epic cold it could have been there.

    If this happened today, someone here in N Wake would be in the Sanitorium complaining about only getting 14''.

    Can't wait to see what happens Sunday. Starting to see some articles about the weather in Kansas City for the game. NWS currently calling a high of 11, and low of 5. Game starts at 6:40pm, which means single digits are likely. I'm sure Brady and the Patriots are used to it, as well as most of the Chiefs. But I wonder about Mahomes. Has he ever played in vodka cold?

    Frank Deal was one of the greats. I loved his enthusiasm for weather, and I felt like he really influenced the other young mets that worked for him in the late 80's/early 90's. One of those was Van Denton, who obviously took over after he retired. The other was a young Eric Chilton, who went on to become the head met at WFMY. I'm not sure if WGHP was just as good as WFMY was back in those days--despite what the ratings might have been. Also, RIP Frank Deal.

    Dang I'm jealous. I'm a few miles east and getting sleet, but not enough to make the back porch crunchy yet. lol

    I second Calc's suggestions. Really anywhere in the Triad would be a good place to consider. Easy drive within 2 hrs and rental costs aren't too pricey. Burlington and Roxboro are good suggestions too. They are closer, and tend to do better than RDU more often than not for winter weather (see the early Dec storm for example).
