    Judging by the thermals, I think it will be better than last week, but certainly a far cry from '07. The high needs to be more stout for that to occur and that pig SE ridge isn't doing any favors. Still could get pretty glacier like for NW of 95 with the typical areas in the cross-hairs.

    I would love to take any recipes you have! I'm exploring different meal options for food prepping since I work shift work. I prepare a ton of food, then I put it into containers and label for the coming 5 days. I'm pretty much at ketosis now after measuring it this morning using Ketone test strips. This might be the greatest decision I've ever made for my health. I love it. I'm making a pot roast today for the next 4 dinners. Simple recipe and perfect for keto. Feel free to PM me to continue the conversation. Heading to the grocery store now.

    Yup. It’s been amazing. Wish I did this sooner. I have my macros set to 70/20/10 with 70 from fat, 20 from protein and 10 from carbs. I’ve lost weight already maintaining my diet and getting some more exercise walking. It’s great. Only been doing it for 2 weeks. My father lost 47 lbs in 6 months doing it and looks like a completely different person. He’s almost not diabetic either. The goal is to lose 60 by end of year. That would put me near my goal weight. I’m a big dude. 6’3” and around 310. Luckily, a lot of my weight is well rounded and not all stomach or anything. Once I lose some weight and fix my neck, going to get back into weight lifting. I’m hoping to get a linebacker look by end of 2020 lol .

    I’m doing Keto right now and loving it!! Avocados are so good. I eat them straight with salt and pepper. Love them. The avocado’s at the grocery store here the best I’ve ever had. Cheese is also a big staple in this lifestyle switch. Protein and fat with a little carbs. It does stink that I can’t have stuff like Mac and Cheese, fries, or other snacks, but cheese cubes, assorted nuts, and Greek yogurt have been great to eat for snacks and meal additions. Plus, any diet that encourages eating ribeye steaks and butter is good with me haha .

    February Banter 2019

    This was a great discussion from last night into this morning. I have a mixture of views. I lean more right economically and left socially. I remember taking one of those huge questionnaires to see where I land in the political spectrum. I ended up exactly where I said and only 8% of people who took the questionnaire ended up there lol. In any case, I am the son of father who’s grandfather came to America in 1927 due to rise in Nazism and a mother who is from Ecuador and came to America in 1972. My great-grandfather on my mom side was a German Jew who fled to South America in 1930 and ended up in a town just outside Quito, Ecuador. I have no tolerance for bigotry and hate. But I do respect differing opinions and have had great conversation on matters through the years. At the end of the day, we are all humans living on a giant sphere moving quickly around a giant, flaming star. We should respect the people we inhabit this planet and the planet itself. It takes $0 to be friendly and I for one love to be that friendly guy .

    100% agreement there. That's why this morning I was kind of wary where this was going. A quicker flip in the mids with still a cold surface press could make for a nasty 24 hours your way and the rest of the typical areas that are prone to holding CAD. And I agree on the ice lol. I do appreciate a good ice storm though, but it's ugly when it starts taking down trees on property. Hopefully it trends more consolidated. Certainly has time for that. Got a feeling the cold is a lock at the surface. When GFS is holding 32-33 at this lead with the warmer air overhead, doesn't make you feel comfortable knowing it's probably a few degrees too warm like always.

    GFS synoptic evolution screams ice storm on this run. Very potent jet cutting over the top with right entrance region placed over the Mid Atlantic. Hold sig looks good at the surface, but southerly 850 winds send the mid level warm air northward. Another NW of 95 high impact zone.

    Yeah. Kind of a hint from my last post I just made. All about the setup. Get a strong high and the colder surface has some merit. A lot of moving pieces with this one to score big. Kind of like every event this winter. Been a p.i.t.a to keep up with. Don't envy the forecasters at Sterling this winter. Had their hands full.

    It can run cold, but with the high positioning and strength this run, it has merit. For me, it's all about the evolving synoptic setup right now, and monitoring the CAD sig closer into game time when the mesos will have a better handle.

    This just isn't your winter man. Need a strong CAD signal and quicker WAA regime for a thump. Still possible. Living on that side of the bay is tough in these setups. Transitions can come in fast and furious with any marine influence. Hopefully the ICON doesn't lead the pack into something.

    I think the ICON is a terrible model, but verbatim, it's a thump to ice NW of the fall line. DC on south is a cold rain after a quick mix transition. Surface never goes above freezing for quite a few. Thank god it's the ICON though.

    I'm actually a little concerned for ice in this setup. Initial WAA snows, but then a flip to ice quicker than normal is possible given the climo trends with these types of systems. Something to watch. Of course, a massive snow thump to ice is on the table, but I'd remain cautious with this type of evolution.
  14. My favorite part of this synoptic setup is the placement of the block to the north right in the 50/50 locale. It’s actually created by two strong areas of low pressure that fujiwara, maintaining one prolific block up top. Notice the high over the NE US gets displaced to north and weakens some, but can’t really eject out of here. This keeps the surface return flow in a favorable position for the entirety of the event during the Euro’s lifecycle. Here’s what I’m talking about. Take a look in the North Atlantic. .

    I certainly loved starting my day opening the Banter thread and seeing you're early morning jokes lol. Puts a smile on my face and I'm sure many others. I'm doing pretty well out here in Texas. Big things happening on the work front for me and the wife and I are doing well. Can't complain. Looking forward to this summer and fall for traveling. Have multiple trips planned all over the place (Texas, FL, back home in the MA, etc).
