I don't have any expectations so it's kinda fun. It's like my team's down 2 touchdowns with a minute left. Might as well see what happens

Down by 12 TD's, 2 min left. 4th and 22 from your 1 yard line... Let 'er rip

I love the enthusiasm on the main board but chasing these D10 storms is the definition of insanity. Same thing happens and people expect different results. Hey- at least it's something pretty to look at! I am 100% convinced we are getting blanked. This winter's grade is a N/A. It never showed up. I walked out my door this morning at 6:30 to 68 degrees...

Actually on the Euro, it’s next Thursday, and probably coagulating in TX at day 5, so not really a 10 day storm!

Aw, come on now. Actually that would be sleet for MBY.  Verbatim, the run we saw of the Euro has Feb 15 or Dec 18 written all over it; all slept and zr here, snow bury for NC.

The biggest snow I've ever seen in my backyard is 5.75 inches, 2nd biggest is 4 inches. That's over a 30 year period.  Please feel free to name another city in the Southeast outside of Florida who hasn't gotten a bigger storm than that over the past 30 years.

That’s sad! Really, I got 8” accidentally in March of 09, you weren’t around for January 88? That should be enough for a lifetime!?

That's honestly amazing to me given the relative close proximity between us. Even the lower elevations here, down at the river near the SC border, have had at least 2 near 12 inch storms and a lot of 4 inch+ just since 2010. That Lee side screw zone running through GA/SC/NC is just a terrible thing.

This front looks pathetic atm. A shadow of its former self.

Rooting  for my SE crew to get a snowstorm. 

FL could use some rain. Dry around my area.

Big difference just between you and me in Easley. I don't do as well as many, but got 5.5 in 2016 and 8 from 2011. Still have a lot more mixing than TR, Greer, etc. Grew up in Dacusville and that was generally a good spot. 16 from 88, at least 12 from 87, around 10 from 93, 6 from 96. My parents there got 9 in 2016. Amazing how much 10 or 20 miles makes. I was in Taylor's for March 93 but never got more than 4.5 due to ground temps being stuck at 34. Western upstate completely missed on others like Jan 2000 and Feb 04.

When a storm is within 3 days, then start a storm thread. If there's agreement with most models, then maybe 5 days.  

 Next time a weenie tag will be issued  :weenie:

I know there are years where RDU got blanked, but has there been an entire winter season where no measurable snow was recorded in the entire forecast area? Furthermore, has there even been a season where the Raleigh NWS didn't issue a single winter weather product throughout? We may be in rare territory here

Most depressing winter in history to be sure. It is almost impossible to get a win in this pattern. The 2/8 event was a lottery win for those who lucked out.

What the flying he*l people!? How hard is it to keep the one liners and whining in the banter threads?! We have 2 banter threads just for this reason. I know this winter has sucked. I’ve lived through a lot of winters that suck and I bi*ch about it in the banter thread. It’s not rocket science. I really don’t like having to call people out. Especially those that have been here long enough to know better. Come on everyone. Just do the right thing
