The one thing about this storm working out is now we have to hold the GFS in high regard for a few weeks at least. Heck, the long range HRRR did well.

It’s always location centric but the HRRR was awful on the nw edge. Simply awful from about 8-12 hours out.

I understand your feelings.  Being a life-long North Carolinian I am used to snowlessness.  But long periods of anomalous warmth like what we just went through really get me down.  I think its OK to feel that way to some extent, but it's also important to try to fight it some as well. 

One big rule I think though is never try to share your displeasure when others are trying to enjoy their happiness.  It's just not fair to them.

Also don't forget that the Panic Room is back up and running.  That thread is meant for venting.

I'm sincerely rooting for you to cash in on Friday!

Without disappointment, there would never be joy.

Balance in all things. 

The first winter I really followed and paid attention to was 2001-02. I was just a preteen boy.

The following winter was 2002-03. The contrast couldn't have been more extreme.

I remember waking up to the radio listing school closings and listening for mine to be closed. For some reason I feel like that, even though it’s still winter break, and I’m in college now.

I may have told this story before, but where I'm from your vehicle is going to have an engine block heater if you want it to function in the winter.  As we call it, you plug in your car.  That being said, urban/suburban school districts rarely, if ever, closed (still the same way).  Forty below?  School's open.  There was the one day when the overnight low had only been around zero and it came over the radio, "________ County schools are closed due to no buses."  It was an urban/rural district and they had all the buses parked in one central lot.  Overnight someone(s) hopped the fence and unplugged every bus, and as a result none of them would start.  They never caught whoever did it.

You did a much better job than me talking him off the ledge. Are you a hostage negotiator?

Oh my I remember that happening to my school system bus yard one time! Never found out who unplugged the busses. Because yea while were were a city within a city we rarely closed unless there was a good 4" on the roads.

I just understand how the passion for cold/snow can get very powerful and sometimes unhealthy, like any other passion can sometimes be.  Just one of those things that some people have to deal with.  Sometimes the unhealthy energy can be harnessed for productive purposes.  For example a drive to learn about weather.
