I just ordered my premergent from Southern States. All this forecasted warm weather will surely germinate those weeds.

Good...that may bring the snow. If you had ordered a snow shovel we would have been doomed.

Its winter in the southeast. Yeah we do occasionally get snowstorms but not regularly. Anyone from rdu tonthe west can save their tears. They had an epic storm already. I had 4 inches in that one with huge raging flakes when I was expecting an hour or two of light snow before the switch.
Sit back and see how this all unfolds. Almost everyone is already above average for the year....how much can we complain about that?

Us eastern guys would like to get in on the fun.

I am sick to goddamned death of banter and whining in the disco thread. 

If these epic patterns didn't always turn into a suck fest and we actually could get a legit threat it may not be that way. Just saying...

Yeah how hard is it to keep in here? 

 

Having said that I miss the golf course like crazy. I am fine if I don't see a flake this winter and we get an early spring.

I've actually been rooting for this pattern to be a big bust since I'm going to be in Costa Rica from January 25th to February 2nd.  Looks like I'm going get this trip off without missing any threats!

I don't believe that- you know you want some snow too!:snowing:

Having said that, couldn't you have played golf the past six weeks (rain aside)?  IMO, fall and winter are the best times to play golf. Summer is beyond too hot and humid.

I tried playing a couple of Saturdays ago (I work until 5 during the week.) It was like playing on soup. We quit after 9 because it was so wet.  I LOVE playing in the summer, but only at 7 am or 3 pm. There's nothing like a quiet evening finishing up as the sun sets while the shadows peek in, and things start to finally cool off. Usually the winter is fine here and there, but with the dormant bermuda not transpiring, a half inch of rain is worse than 2 inches on active turf, so this winter has basically been a complete no go. Spring is hit or miss but there's nothing like that first warm Saturday on the course in early/mid March, and I'm ready for that. Of course I will take snow, it's one of my favorite things to look forward to, but based on how things have been lately, I'm gonna find something else to look forward to. Also I just got an entire new set of clubs from top to bottom, so that is fueling my golf bug a little bit more than usual. I'm heading down to Orlando for a work conference/golf week in early March which I'm absolutely stoked for.

If we don't get a whiff of snow before month end, or have a very solid event to track the first week of Feb this board is going to come unglued.  Nerves are frayed!  We should install a countdown clock on the main thread page so everyone has to watch the seconds of winter tick away with no snow.  We should also post discount codes for online therapy sessions.  I think some folks in SC are going to need some professional help soon.  Lol!

I just need some dry.  I mean a long ass period of dry.  I have so many outdoor construction projects to finish that I couldn't do last year, I could be happy with a month of dry.  Sure, I'd love one last snow before March, but outside of that bring me 50's and sunny please!

It's already an epic meltdown. Me included! It stems from all the hype this winter brought. Not blaming anyone, everyone though it would be great. And when the December storm came it looked like the hype would verify.

Now here we sit about to hit Feb and the end is closely approaching, and we've had nothing since and are chasing 288 hrs GFS unicorns! All while half the board is completely snowless and even some areas hit in December are still below average and nothing promising going forward. What an epic winter! Only epic winter we will ever see is some fluke in a strong La Nina year that absolutely nobody sees coming.

Before we take you back to your regularly scheduled programming, we have a developing story in the newsroom. Watch as the disco thread goes from sanitarium to obs and banter. More on this at 10.

Don't worry. At the 11 news when the 0z models roll it'll be back to the sanitarium.

Pattern looks to get warm again in 10 days or so. Maybe it will reload into something different because this pattern is not gonna get it done.

Here's an alternative view to almost all on this board. I'm enjoying the warm weather and still shake my head in amusement at all the cold and snow lovers here. I'm closely following the potential record arctic outbreak up in the midwest next week while enjoying this near 70 degree afternoon in CHS. Even got to the pool on Saturday. Was great!

The cold nights we've had lately have been an annoyance and hoping they are about behind us. Doesn't need to be hot yet, but less cold nights in the 30s and fewer cloudy days would be appreciated. 

As I see the pictures of snow and the barbaric cold on FB from friends and family up north I'm glad to no longer be part of that soul crushing misery.

Wrong,  I know damn well we ain't gonna get anything so I'd much rather be able to not freeze my ass off daily.  70 degrees keeps my power bill low.  I want a snow storm but after that .....  damn this cold

Eh... Took the chance like we always do when a 50/50/low rolls around (now watch we get triple thumped Monday, Wed/Thurs, and next weekend and somebody (my money is on Mack) complaining about the thread getting taken down early...

Starting to get frustrated here in the upstate. There are 3 upcoming systems and I can't find a single snowfall map that projects anything more than a few flurries here (with most being a complete blank). There looks to be a great chance of at least one accum snow west of the Apps (and maybe as far down as the gulf coast), and the I-40 corridor through NC has lots of support for something, and even the coastal carolina areas have a shot next week. But the NEGA and upstate (heck, the whole state of SC) just cannot get any love from the models. I keep thinking we'll have a couple more shots before the end of Feb, and we still may, but each new threat leaves us out. Were going to run out of punting room here pretty soon. :wacko:

All relative and personal perception I guess, :lol: I feel like I'm still waiting on the cold - it can arrive anytime now... 70 can (and will) happen anytime b/w April and October, but give me the cold right now! It's been a pretty wimpy winter so far, too many fantasy arctic outbreaks  - all talk and no action from the models! For me, I'll take cold even if its dry. Rather have snow of course, but rather have cold and dry than warm ALL DAY ANY DAY! :snowing::shiver::wub:

We're living in the WRONG place my friend, we can't even get fantasy snow right now! :weep:

This will go down as memorable winter alright. It'll be the one with hype and expectations that literally found every way possible to fail us.
