Winter 2020-2021 whining thread

Recommended Posts

Well here I go. Screw the weather and screw great patterns And screw you that saw flakes. Try living in Rockingham NC. I chased 20 minutes north to see. Flake. That’s my life. Nobody tell me a great patterns coining because you don’t know anything. Can’t enough predict a storm 12 hours out. Screw the models too . Btw winter is OVer

I swore I wouldn’t get invested in this one. I knew I had no chance. But, got thrown in the advisory. Expected something, even a car topper after that. Nope. Can’t even buy a dusting here in peak winter

Let’s move on to the 20th or so now.  We seem to always luck out about 5 miles north east of RDU airport, but not tonight.

This was never a good situation and we got sucked in without good temperatures.  Never a good recipe unless you have a perfect situation.

I do the same thing. No advisory here but I thought Heck I will see a few flakes. It snowed 10 miles north, 10 mile west of about 5 miles east of me. Me? Not a flake mixed with rain . Can’t wait to track the next one lol ( that’s what weenies do)

I think I care less about the accumulation yesterday and more about the fact that after two years of having systems overproduce moisture 2-3x normal and shattering precip records by double the yearly norms, we finally had a system underachieve in precip...and alas...what great timing for it!

Yep when it's suppose to rain it pours and when it's suppose to snow it fizzles.  :facepalm::axe:

The boundary layer always wins

If you wake up and precip is moving in with air temp of 38 and dew point of 32 it’s not going to work out well

It's a Nina, the subtropical jet isn't what it is during a Nino or neutral

I was happy to see my dusting and got some cool drone footage flying in the snow.  But I invested waaayyy to much sleepy time in Katherine.  Lesson learned when we dont have a reliable cold source.  We easily had the QPF for a 3-5" storm in the Triad.  But relying on the boundary layer to win the day for us was just delirium.  Wont fall for that again.

I’ve come to the realization that if I want to see good snows every year I’m going to have to budget money to  and pack up and go to the mountains rent a cabin and enjoy it that way.
