      SUBSCRIPTION DRIVE 2017   01/09/2017

      As you may have noticed, many of you are receiving renewal notices for subscriptions.  Over the past year we have upgraded our board software and one of our dedicated servers to help speed things up.  Plans for this year are to upgrade further to make everything even faster and more reliable. If we meet our goal of $10,000 in subscription sales this winter, all members with a Super ($50) subscription or higher will receive a free American Weather T-shirt.  Additional details will follow if we make our goal!

February banter thread

1,297 posts in this topic

this isn't a banter thread, this is another panic room thread. if you really want to whine and cry over winter being over on 1/31. go elsewhere and do it. banter is just for banter, not hyperbole complaining.

This thread sucks. First it wasn't started  by me and second it wasn't started by me

 

so winter hasn't delivered. There are worse things in life. Taking out anger over a damn algorithm is super dumb

My perspective is the only difference between this year and 97-98, 01-02, 11-12 etc is that the NWP models have finally gotten good enough that we know well in advance the pattern has little if any chance to produce anything worthwhile.  In those prior bad seasons, there were plenty of teases, the cold was always 10 days away, etc.  This year really has been consistently bad, biased mild almost continuously since the 5th of July when Summer finally showed up and never looked back.  Only change is it's been cloudy and damp for most of met winter.  You would have actually seen a lot more traffic and a lot more whining those years, as people would track things for days only to have it fall apart after starting to take it seriously.

At this point, the only thing that might surprise me is if we didn't see a prolonged period of cold and wet set in by at least the end of March.  The sooner we can get that over with, the better.  Would be the surest sign that Spring is actually on it's way.

I found a great last minute deal on Wizards tix for the celtic's game but passed them up because I figured they would lose after being on the road the night before. I found a great deal on 4 tickets this morning for tonight's Knicks game in what I thought was section 210 so I bought them right away. Just met the guy today to pick them up and it wasn't section 210...it's SUITE 210. Boom. Private suite, private bathroom, leather theater seats, and 4 tix for $100. His company gave them to him and something came up so he can't take his family tonight. Was just looking to quickly unload them before they went to waste. 

I am one happy mofo right now. Screw weather. My young twins first NBA game will be in a fookin suite. How suite is that?

Karma for all the boredom you've endured this winter. Is there a body part I can give you for a ticket?

lol- I wish I had the whole suite. We could do 24 wx weenies pounding beers with weather models on the flat screen and wizards stomping the knicks in the front yard. 

I go a couple times a year. You can find sick deals with last minute sellers on Craigs. I've never paid more than $40/ticket for good seats. 4 years ago I got 4 court side behind the visitors bench (Pistons) for $300 on a last minute fire sale 2 hours before the game. It was pretty awesome. Chauncey Billups wasn't dressed but was on the bench. Had a great down to earth convo with him. Sat next to Phil Chenier in the club bar after the game and had a great convo with him too. It was a great night.
