I feel you Bob. It is getting to a point where I find no pleasure in reading through the discussion thread let alone spend the time to post something of value. I have to wonder how many others feel this way as well. Now if the powers that be feel that the board is most productive with this nonstop whining and weenism within the discussion thread then so be it. I will just move on to other avenues where I can enjoy the pleasure of tracking without having to deal with the children who's self interest override those of their fellow posters.

Well since the PSA didn't work it might be time to limit posting of some that puts post in the wrong area.

Just make sure you enjoy it even if you "only" get 3" when the forecast was for 6". 

I'm at the point where I find myself not wanting to post the good things I see on runs anymore. Which really sucks because that's the entire spirit that eastern and now amwx was built on. If it wasn't for that spirit there wouldn't even be any eastern or amwx. And now I find myself holding back. Wtf. 

18z gefs looked better than the op for Fri and continues the run of potential right through the end. It would go a long ways if people could wait until something is off the table before piling on the lead blanket of pessimism. Sure, Fri could be a whiff or all rain or non accum snow. But you know what? It might also be our best event of the year. Nobody has the power to see into the future. At least enjoy the chase and the potential. At least we HAVE potential. We spent 10 out of the 12 weeks of met winter last year with literally NO potential at all. That's b*tchworthy.

We haven't gone 2 week this whole winter without something intesting going on. Even if it didn't pan out big it's still fun to track this stuff. It's like hunting and fishing for me. I've gone out many days and came home empty handed. And you know what? I still had fun, enjoyed the chase, and looked forward to doing it again. I wish more of that spirit lived here nowadays. It clearly doesn't 

God I'm with you. Could we start an "analysis only" thread where whining and crap is not tolerated at all. I know technically the goal was to confine that crap to the panic room but mods don't want to be heavy handed with deleting posts and I totally get that but it's just getting out of hand.  To me it's that the complaining is now discouraging substantive analysis. The whiners jump all over any mention of optimistic assessments to the point it makes me think twice about posting my objective opinion sometimes too. Knowing someone is gonna chime in with "yea right it won't happen". So maybe if the mods aren't comfortable being heavy handed in regular threads we could start a "no complaints analysis thread" and then they won't feel so bad deleting crap because it's one thread specifically for avoiding that. In reality it's semantics because the substantive posts here would just migrate over there.. I'm aware but darn it whatever it takes at this point. I don't even mind bad analysis, some are just trying to learn and I sucked at this once too, but the discouraging of analysis in favor of a pity party is inexcusable.

I hope the substantive contributions don't become limited.  This forum is a big part of enjoying this hobby and to be without it wouldn't negate my enjoyment of snow falling from the sky but it sure would put a damper on the chase.

we really do live in the worst area. Nobody gets teased like us. Some areas like the Carolinas,Richmond,Georgia are 90% out of the chase no matter what.....the problem is...we are always in the game unless its a complete shutout for the East Coast. Meaning that if NY,philly are looking at something, chances are that we are in the game. i dont count Boston. On top of it, we have had epic winters....40 inch storms, 90 inch winters......13-14,14-15 and then January 16 blizzard. This is an area that can get alot of snow. It can trick us into thinking we are a snow town. Many times the 850s are just cold enough for snow...but we dont get the precip. The clippers dry up...the southern storms stay south....the coastals are too far east...Miller B's blast areas just 100 miles north of us. So we have an extremely low ROI because unlike NC and Chester, Va...we are always in the game to be chasing almost everything and yet we almost always fall short..except when we dont. Thats why I am constantly frustrated. I either need to move with Bob to Lake Hartwell or move to a snowier climate. I cant live  here anymore and be healthy snow lover. You guys need to show more symphathy then say Ji is trolling,etc

Your post has nothing to do with long range disco, you are whining and have been the last few hours.....take it to banter

Here in Richmond where we are "out of the chase 90% of the time" have 10" and part of the mid Atlantic forum.....unless you want to add something useful which is maybe 1 out of 10 posts for you just ride the pine a bit bud
