POWERSTROKE

February Banter

Recommended Posts

Hopefully this storm ends the Carolina's 3 year snow drought so we won't have to hear about a four year snow drought next year. :)

It's inevitable that someone will complain , no matter what. If they get 6 inches of snow and an inch of sleet on top, they will whine and cry cause they didnt get 7 inches of snow and can't make snowballs! Give me anything but cold rain !

Great-yay!! Lets hope for big problems with trees and powerlines. Thats a litte sadistic, but i dont think its going to be of any worry in this area anyway. Will be far too warm.

You will be one of the folks on TV that gets interviewed saying "I didn't know a storm this bad was coming. Someone should have warned us"

Does anyone here mess around with metal detecting or treasure hunting type stuff?

Absolutely, I am a long-time hunter. Got into it back in the 80's and still hunt when I can. Best find was a 1774 British 1/4 Farthing coin. Many, many silver coins as well.

Well; I guess it's being ignored the horrible ice storm that could unfold for many (bigger cities) in the deep south.  Maybe all you NC guys can get lucky; but I hope the ice goes north from here.

 

the Euro EPS is going to win this round (just like the last winter event) down here though.

 

Anyone that wishes for this ice storm deserves to lose power for a gracious period to understand how cold they can actually feel.  meh.

 

If you guys lived around my area and saw the trees etc.. you'd wish the same.

 

thanks for making a point about it earlier Lookout & Larry. & Chris  It looks like it's possibly the real deal down this way.

 

My bday is in a few days.. guess i'll get to see a historic ice storm if these models are correct.  blah.

I hear you Shawn and really hope you guys don't get that much ice or it would be a disaster. Ice of that magnitude is just very uncommon in your area and I fear nobody would be ready for it (well at least those not on this board). Still have time to get a warmer or even colder solution which could change the precip type for those in your area. Suffice to say many here will be following the model updates intently for the next couple of days.

Don't feel bad.....If the Euro is correct, I'll be iced in without power for days while my daughter in Spartanburg will be playing in a foot of snow  :P  :lol::(

LOL, it's been a long time since 2010. I am still not emotionally invested in this one, not until 0z Monday model runs.

I hope nobody believes the NAM, it's pretty bad after 60 hours. Actually most say after 48 hours.

I guess on the NAM, the upstate would be 'enjoying' an ice storm?

If this happens, I may slit my wrists and never follow weather again. Literally 20mi south of me gets 8"+ while I get 2-3".

Post something like this in the discussion thread again and you will be on the outside looking in here  :angry:

What do any mets think about a north trend for this even as is with the last system? And pretty much every system the midatlantic has seen this winter.

The NAM gives me almost an inch of ice :lol:

Yikes. That's crushing. I hope you can get more sleet or snow than ice. That snowfall map, in its geographical coverage is probably a once in 20 year type of deal down here...maybe more.

Edit: Not the map...if it were to verify, I mean. :)
