I'm with you. I'm looking forward to a windy, cold, driving rain. Too bad it'll be at its best during the overnight hours.

Yeah bring the heavy rain. Much needed. Not sure I would call it cold though. Most of it will fall with temps in the 50s and 60s.

Our 33 and rain events are still a couple months away ;)

@C.A.P.E.

Heck of a temp gradiant tomorrow afternoon on models...near 70 far eastern shore ..60s near you  and high 40s imby by late afternoon ( Gfs). Most of my rain is from wraparound with temps in the  40s and windy as all heck..that's pretty raw stuff . The subforum obs tomorrow night should be full of variety that's for sure . That sub 980 low onshore at Jersey should finally get some legit  excitement for our subforum .

Not quite 33 and rain but nasty enough

Weather reports of this storm dont even mention Washington DC. That really bums me out.

Its clear its not going to get going until it is well north of us.

This is a New York State Special.

 

Washington is not even an afterthought, not even a footnote.

We are not even in the frame at all lol.

Eastern VA well east of I 95 is going to JACKPOT with this storm. They will get even more life-giving rain than New York State. They will get so much heavy rain by Wednesday that they will get to enjoy frantic water rescues.

Forecast for Dale City remains on track, for a quarter to as much as a third of on inch of rain by early Tuesday. The KLWX forecasters love to throw around that DEFORMATION word. I don't see it. Maybe on the eastern Del Mar Va, but no effing way in Dale City. Maybe in a parallel universe.

Repeat after me, KLWX forecasters: We are in a LA Nina that will last us until at least late 2021. In the Mid Atlantic, La Nina brings much warmer and much much DRIER than normal weather. The Mid Atlantic will frequently TORCH. The Mid Atlantic will nearly always miss out on important rain events. This is because storms do not get going until they are east of northern Delaware. In the Mid Atlantic, LA Nina DEFIES average climatology, it brings highly abnormal dryness and heat. Read and Heed. And do us all a HUGE favor: Throw away that crack pipe! Get rid of the pot! It is killing your brain cells.

 

Can I have some of what they are smokin'? Because whatever it is they are smoking, it's fvcking chronic as hell.

Only problem with all this rain is it will bring the earthworms up to the root level of my newly established grass, and the moles will be right there to f it all up lol.

I had no idea moles ate earthworms.  All the more reason to eradicate the varmints.

Yup that's what they are after. Lots of money is wasted on grub killer. I fell for that early on lol.

Only way to really get rid of a mole is the traps, or a good cat.

Our dog (AmStaff mix) took care of any potential mole problems early on in his tenure with us.

He’s moved onto chipmunks now.

9:30 am start time in London for my Vikings...bust out the snacks or the yogurt?

I kind of like it. Watch the game in the morning and still have the rest of the day to do whatever.

Dogs work, but they generally aren't as "clean" as cats in getting the job done. They may wreck your lawn worse than the moles lol.

Try a pitchfork.  My grandpa used to sit on his porch with his coffee and watch for em.  When he'd see a mole trail progressing, he'd go out and start prodding several feet away from the end of the trail, working his way towards the end of the trail (in case the mole reversed when he heard g-pa coming).  Would jam the pitchfork into the trail at an angle to maximize the number of tines penetrating the trail.  When he got a wet spot on one of the tines, he knew he scored a hit.  Would give a few extra jabs in the same area for good measure.  No smell, no fuss and no holes from the dog digging up the yard.  Also had a dog he used to help him locate the moles to help determine where to apply the pitchfork.  Except sometimes the dog was lazy.

Only once in 12 years have I seen a mole ridge moving. I grabbed a shovel and took care of that one. They seem to do their thing at night or when I am not looking lol. The spring loaded traps with the spikes work best for me. Just need to find their primary tunnel. That always leads into the woods, which completely surrounds my yard.

If I were a Viking fan I would be a tad nervous. The Browns have some young talent and are way overdue for a win. Eventually they are going to figure out how not to lose, or it will happen by accident, or something lol.

Nervous is our base state.

Well, with the Redskins basically people out of the playoff run (judging by their tough schedule), let's hope that this Winter isn't as dissapointing

I'm sorta surprised the skins had a final drive chance. I'm totally not surprised it ended with a pick 6. 

Me either; I was going up against the Cowboys D.  

eta:  and for the first time this season, I failed to start DeAndre Hopkins.  On the road against Seattle.  Son of a b**ch.
