Well folks...by the grace of God, I cross the threshold to age 30 today! Very thankful and looking forward to where He takes me this decade :). And I don't mind the weather too much today because I consider the snow last week that came on Beethoven's 250th as an early birthday present above...that was an awesome day too!

Awesome!  Time to blast some number nine when the squalls come through! :D

Although I'm def a fan of Ludwid, I must say nothing quite sets the stage for expecting a fortissimo of wind blast like Mussorgrsky's Bydlo from Pictures at An Exhibition! :D

‘‘Twas the night before Christmas and all across the net, Ji was trolling cause the latest GFS was nothing but wet. 
Meanwhile the snow weenies readied for bed, hoping soon their winter dreams would be fed.  

Pictures of h5 plots with lots of high latitude red, played all night like a fantasy in their head.  

They told Ji to relax as he went full tilt to the max. That even though the operational was wetter, don’t worry the ensembles will look better.  

But Stormtracker knew our climo wasn’t a good bet, so he thought it over and decided to jet. But he’ll be back soon and we’ll all be together, to celebrate the blocking and our snowy January weather.  

The strat warm is coming and it will do the trick, by mid January flakes will be falling and things should get epic.  

So I say to you my friends as we wait for the pattern to get right, Merry Christmas to all and to all a goodnight.

Drew a lovely Xmas shift tomorrow so celebrating with my folks today. In such a crappy year grateful I have a close knit family nearby I can still visit. Got my dad a box of Great Lakes Christmas ale to remind him of home :drunk:

18z GFS continues the cutter parade.

"It isnt reading the blocking properly"

"The pattern is just beginning to get established as is evident by hr 384"

"The impulse that will kickstart the wintry pattern is out over the Pacific still"

"It's an off-hour run"

"But as long as the Euro shows something at day 10 the GFS is likely out to lunch"

"GFS isn't realizing the strength of the SWE down in the trop yet"

BCBS is so good every year. 2020 is awesome, unsurprisingly.

Dropped Jolly by Crooked Run earlier, then followed up with a couple double/triple IPAs. Maybe a good idea, maybe not, but I don’t care either way!

Just found two 2019s of BCBS in my beer cellar.  So I'm going with one of those next (almost went with 2019 FW Parabola, but I only have one)

Pants optional Christmas Eve here in my household.

Ha! 

Not at all. 30's & 40's are the BEST. 

Then everything starts falling apart at 50.

 

Or so I've heard...:weep:

Whether you’re 13, 39, or 93, each day is a blessing. Even better if many of those days include snow!

Thank you (I think :lol:) Haha Well, as far as the biological, physical peak is concerned speaking, that ain't completely wrong!! (Look at how soon after 30 we start callin' pro athletes "aging"). But hey, good thing that's just for athletic things!

Indeed! Give thanks for each day, and when ya hit a new birthday, give even more thanks! (because there's probably plenty of stuff in between that coulda done you in but didn't, lol)

And yes...snow days? All the better! Count those blessings too (and be careful not to be too picky about how it comes)

I just want to leave you all with this very special song.. one that reminds us all just how lucky we are.  Merry Christmas everyone!

 

There's a world outside your window
And it's a world of dread and fear
Where the only water flowing
Is the bitter sting of tears
And the Christmas bells that ring
There are the clanging chimes of doom
Well tonight thank God it's them instead of you
And there won't be snow in Africa this Christmas time
The greatest gift they'll get this year is life
Where nothing ever grows
No rain nor rivers flow
Do they know it's Christmas time at all?
