The Panic Room- TVA Style

Recommended Posts

Embrace the truth and abandon hope all ye who enter...

I have purchased a franchise of The Panic Room for the TN Valley and I am excited to announce our Grand Opening of our new resort is today for all those lost in weeniedom. 

Get your winter cancel on in time for tonight's New Year's Eve smash and get one of the good rooms at our brand-new accommodations.  

The time is now to cliff jump and join the afterlife you've always wanted.  You've seen the long-range and that it's all garbage through the climatological apex of winter.  After that, you know the sun angle makes it all worthless.  If you're still on the fence, sing the following tune, Walking in Memphis, and that should push you over the edge of the cliff.

Put on my big snow boots and
I boarded the plane
Touched down in the land of the Delta Blues
In the middle of the freezing rain

Snow up high
Won't you pour down over me
Yeah, I got some accretion
But I'm as blue as a boy can be

When I was walking in Memphis
I was walking with cold soaked feet on Beale
Walking in Memphis

But despair is all you'll feel

If you're really stubborn and you still have hope, I'd dare you to take a read of my book (see below) this afternoon, so you can abandon all hope and enjoy the party you're dying not to miss...

Thank you!
I am in the business of ending your pain.

Will you be beginning your stay this afternoon or shall I put you on the watch list for a future date?

Watchlist for now. Fortune's wheel may yet spin out a new fate and besides, upslope may be lookin' good for the plateau with this upper level energy around day 5 on the Euro. 
Watchlist it is. I will put you on with the bonus code DOOMNYE2020. If we don't get two check-ins by midnight, that code will entitle you to one of our 2 Founder's Suites when your stay does actually commence:

How far is your location above flood plain? 

Fear not- We are positioned well above the planes of meteorological battle- flooding rains- even the coldest ones- have no power here.

If all else fails, my panic room is the open Great Plains in May.

 

Yassss

A panic room doesn't just need to be for winter lol. I can see it now..a thread full of open plains and puffy clouds :lol:

O come all ye faithless,
Sorrowful and despondent,
O come ye, O come ye
To meet a weenie's end

The caroling season is eternal on the other side.

Oh my that's even in a minor key. So depressing, lol!

I really think it'll turn around though. If not, I'll look forward to Plains chase season.

Emotional hedging, I sense!

Totally different, yet here we are again. 

I get it, the MJO and SPV aren't the only bus drivers,  but you'd think there would be a different outcome, lol.

I'm looking over the edge at Cliff Tops @mempho ,  for atmospheric hope.

Still not jumping, but won't take much of a shove, lol.

Great post...Just goes to show there is more than one avenue to a non-winter.   Commonality is a very active MJO in phase 6 FWIW and active IO.  That IO spike gave us the shaft in December I think.  Fab February, man!  Come-on!!!!  Who needs hope when we have...well, iris blooming!!! LOL.

BTW, no room needed for me.  I am riding this all of the way to the first week of April.  Then it is garden and fishing time.  If it gets really crappy, I may head out West for spring and hang out in their snow.  That is my real life panic room - 6,000'+ near Yellowstone.  LOL.

Lo, as I contemplated from atop my perch, I began to think of what it would be like:

I also thought of state of the winter and my addled mind flew to the stratosphere and the tropics

Somewhere around the Horn of Africa, I had a vision and my mind flew west:

and despite the frustration of some,

hope was sparked. 

 

So even as the monks marched up LeConte, singing a Requiem:

I looked to the PNA for hope:

I'm starting to think I just need to move up north to see some snow. With climate change, I'm starting to lose all hope for any significant snow around here.

Starting in May,  Asheville NC airport will be running Monday and Friday flights to Boston on Allegiant Air.   Since you can usually pick up a round trip flight for under 100.00 I may initiate a chase sometime next winter.  Just thought I'd mention it now in case anyone else would be interested in considering.  There's nothing like snow in your back yard, but chasing a monster would be a lot of fun....

Panic room is in effect. Cold pattern forecasts fell apart like the Houston (blue) lead over KC (red) last weekend.

That Asheville flight would have come in handy for AMS, but I did not go. Instead I'm in the panic room.

Oh well. Everyone have a good weekend!

That's a good idea. I actually think I saw an article saying they were flying out of Knoxville as well.

I didn’t even realize I was posting in the panic thread.  I thought I was in the banter thread....
