FYI. I don't think you tagged him properly unless my phone is acting up. But I would love to hear this too

@SandySurvivor you can't compare the effects of Michael in Georgia since it didn't make landfall there. I'm sure you saw the damage between Mexico city Beach and Panama City Florida. Michael's affects at landfall were much worse than sandy as far as destruction in the typical sense. However sandy affected a larger area and was costlier. So it depends how you define "worse". Michael was A high end cat 4 at landfall and some suggest it may be upgraded to a cat 5 in the coming years when the full analysis is completed. Not trying to downplay sandy but if it didn't occur at high tide during the moon cycle it would not have caused so much damage.

Albany GA is 150-160 miles north of where LF was. Though the storm was still packing cat 2 winds, it was nowhere near LF

look at the damage sandy left behind.  entire communities wiped out.

Like I said, it depends how you define "worse". That happened from a fire that started. Again, I'm not saying sandy wasn't bad but IMO they aren't comparable as most hurricanes aren't to one another. Michael flattened communities from the wind and storm surge alone.

Will post this later in the main thread as well, when more of the offenders are present. 

 

If you declared this threat dead, “cold rain”, etc, and are in the thread to discuss anything beyond the impacts of said rain...enjoy your timeout. :)

Dropping timeouts faster than you put away Ubu’s up in Lake Placid?

Winter 2019 - a colder rainier version of 2012 - the horror

 

an unmitigated disaster.  No help from the PAC, AO/NAO and MJO has been mostly in 4-5....big bag of fail.   The cold we've gotten has been accompanied by dry weather....   Quite possible NYC gets to 2/1 with less than an inch of snow for met winter....hope we don't end up with a delayed spring-that's the worst a snowless winter followed by a -NAO in April...LOLz

February is our month. Anybody want to bet?

if I lose I don’t post for the whole summer if I win you don’t post for the summer 

So basically you want to bet that our snowiest month of the season on average is going to be our snowiest month?

No I’m betting that it’s going to be a big big month for cold and especially snow. Way above average

Well Feen, you may be right.  However, I would not get your hopes up considering how this winter has gone thus far.

didn't say it was over.   Said that up until now, these things (or the lack of cooperation from them) has prevented a snowstorm (Even a light one) since met winter started. We could turn on a dime and have 60 inches in Feb-who knows-but you'll need to see some changes in the PAC and MJO for sure or its likely more of the same.   (and this is banter so it's ok to rage a bit here chief....:ph34r:)

hahaha.  Just awful.  Especially with the poor modeling back then-many forecasts of snow and then you'd wake up to rain or nothing at all.   We did have some impressive arctic shots...
