WINTER 2019/2020 BANTER

Recommended Posts

I am still waking up early to check the models to see if they show any snowstorms on the horizon.  What a disaster this winter is.

Worst winter ever for me

I miss walking on high piles of snow and digging my car out.

 

I guess we were all spoiled by the really good winters of the 2000s.

The beginning of March is starting to look like more of the same on the models now, no semblance of any high latitude blocking, strong SPV continuing. Would not be surprised to see a continuation of what we have been seeing in February come the 1st week of next month...

I guess the pattern has to break down at some point.

southeast ridge will be moving away end of month and EPO goes Negative  --chances are increasing for a favorable period last few days of month into 1st week of March -BUT we have been fooled before

Cold start and about 18” otg at our place near Gore today.  This winter stinks but most weekends have been salvageable up here.  Hopefully we’re not shutout the rest of the way on the coast.

Lol at the people saying no more cold and snow. They will be in for a rude awakening come late February into March when the cold and snow will arrive.

wow that seals it for me. i remember an extremely dark steel blue sky before it hit. i went inside as it started and then branches blew across the window

What got me into weather was the Blizzard of 1996. I’m sure that and any other severe weather event collapsed before it got to the south shore where I grew up.

There weren't many to speak of.....April 82, Feb 83, jan 87 and March 93....and none of them anywhere near the calibre of 96...83 came close though.

Weenies everywhere losing their sh*t due to the lack of snow. 

I'm way past it and looking at seed catalogs. I'd organize the tackle box but after 40 years, i don't wanna mess with tradition....saltwater fishing has gotten so bad I have rigs I'll never use again ( winter flounder, whiting, fluke ) due to the disappearance of the species or draconian regulations. A proposed 3 bluefish limit this year....a fish once so bountiful people didn't even want them.

You may be the only person in the tristate area who does.....I may like a good snowstorm, but digging out? that's not for me....was reading an article about "halfbacks" people who wanted to retire where there was no snow ( specifically ) and wound up in FL but the place is so hot for so many months they found that equally intolerable ( I can sympathize )so they go "halfway" back to their origin state ( usually the northeast or upper midwest ) to SC, NC, Ga, etc....four seasons with mild winters and very rare snow ( believe Atlanta might have more snow than us this year ). I gotta admit I'm not missing the snow much this year. It'll be back.

We never had 4 or 5 in row like this year. Managed at least 15-20" most winters in the 80s. We came close to back to back under 10" winters from 96-98

If you've had more than a trace of snow you've had more snow than the city of Atlanta has had this season. It was only their northern suburbs that had accumulations last week.

I currently sit at 20.5 inches, 12 of it from the early December storm. A horrible winter especially with the mild temperatures added in.

Sad but so true. I remember the sheep's head which the bay was named for and party boating for whiting and Ling during the cold season. My father used to pull up good sized porgies, flounder and blue claw crab off the narrows, shore road sea wall between the 4th and 14th avenues. Times long gone. No need for restrictions. Heaven help you if you get caught today with a short sized fluke, even though you can find even smaller specimens at the local markets after the trawlers drop their ill gotten loads. ( the trawlers, that I feel are responsible, still have no size restrictions.) As always .....

My friend Devin lives in Wasatch county in Utah which is the mountain range and he just broke 400 inches today. It has been snowing all winter over there.

Amazing

Been measuring snow since 1974...Have had three seasons with under 10" of snow...So far 6.8" this season. Last time with under 10" was 2011-12.

I see bxengine deleted my posts, the geese went south yesterday expect snow in two weeks (March 1st) maybe a few days before or after... if it doesn’t happen don’t ever listen to me again... fair enough?

Odd.  I saw geese fly due east today.  Hmmm.
