Been entertaining our girls most of the day, but finally have some down time. Of course, the weather is disgusting, so I’m watching DVRed soccer. Could be worse, I suppose.

Will be sitting by the heater under the carport and cracking some special release Bourbon County stout bottles with my buddy later.

Co-sign. I’m pretty bored today. Can’t go outside. Not very interested in these bowl games. 

Bored too. I'm  actually watching a replay of game 2 of the 1983 World Series on MASN. The last World series game played in Baltimore.  I was at the game with my father.  I was 10 years old. Anybody that knew how good the O's were from 1966-1983 would've have bet their life savings that we would be going on 38 years without returning to the WS.

My dad wasn't lucky enough to score 83 WS tickets but we went to 30 - 40 games a year including 83'  . Great memories . We walked to every game ( we had no car lol)

Those were the days. I can remember the stadium shaking from the roar of the crowd. You might remember home owners charging to park your in car in front of their house when the games were sold out.

What years are you cracking? I have some BCS bottles from  09/10/12/13/14/15. I mistakenly broke my chain of the vertical by drinking the 11. It was a drunken moment of stupidity during one our previous years snow storms. :lol:

Let me know how the tasting goes. Love to hear about it. Cheers!

Weather related - it’s cold and damn rainy. Too bad it wasn’t 10 degrees colder.

Roads were very icy coming over the catoctins on the way home from work around 530 today. There was a car that went down an embankment from the ice. In Thurmont roads were fine but alot of ice on the trees.  Wasn't till I was over 1000 ft in elevation that the roads were dicey. Once on the other side if the catoctins in Smithsburg roads were good again with some ice on trees.

That added elevation makes all the difference with winter weather.

There's been times when it's raining at home in Smithsburg but on top of route 77 there's several inches of snow.

now that the sun has set and the rain has lightened up significantly, ice is beginning to accrete.

Euro has been very dry in recent runs. It will probably increase liquid in future runs. I think we could see a period of few hours of snow after a changeover from rain. Perhaps 1-2 although I could see getting nothing just as likely as getting a nice 3-4 inch surprise.

I dunno the euro has been a big red flag to me. I’ve never really gotten invested in this.  Comparing the runs at 12 and 18z the euro made sense. The upper low keeps trending further and further NW. There really wasn’t much of a surface wave along the coast until close to our latitude. That band of heavy previp all the way from the coast wrapped around the upper low looked less likely then the split due to weak to almost non existent forcing in between the developing coastal wave and the upper low. The NAMs now look like the euro. The precip shield blossoms just to our north as the coastal finally deepens enough to produce better moisture transport and lift but we needed the quick thump snow idea.  Maybe if we see the surface system trend more amplified sooner or the h5 more elongated towards the coast and less consolidated. Right now there is a big area with not much mechanism to get lift in between and that’s where we are.
