@mappy and other bourbon people, if you haven't tried it, Knob Creek Smoked Maple Bourbon is GOOD. Had last weekend at friends', they mixed w little extra maple syrup, lots of ice, lemon twist (I believe that was all) and it was so good I can't stop thinking about it. I usually drink b straight, this was delicious that way, too.

They obviously don't believe in decimal points...lol

<Sean Connery Scottish Voice>Ya cheap baaastaaad! You'll pay $2-3K for a dram and like it, laddie! Just like any real Scotsman when it comes to Scotch!</Sean Connery Scottish Voice>:lol:

But seriously I hope those prices are in cents rather than dollars! (Sean Connery Scottish Voice to me: "and we'll take away your Scottish card too lad, if you're not careful!")

So so yummy. Had to be careful not to drink too fast. I also thought the level of smoked maple in the Knob Creek was exactly right...there but not at all overpowering. The extra maple syrup really worked in this drink though :wub:

I mainly stick to this thread and occasionally the Discob one. I am Dyslexic and quite possibly ADHD. I think in 3D and on a daily basis forget any info I tried to understand. I am not book smart and I suck in Math. So in most threads here I feel pretty stupid. But I need a place to talk about my geek passion for weather. I am not saying all this to get sympathy am just saying we all tick differently. :wub:

We certainly do. Btw, sympathy is automatic for sucking in math...trust me I have PTMD post traumatic math disorder  from high school, lol. But as you said, this is one place to snow geek out...not too many places outside of here to do that!

There are free classes at local NWS offices. I took the Spotter training and I know there is a Winter Weather and Severe Weather training. If you have not already I recommend checking into them.

Randy/all,

Anyone else receive an email about registering the americanwx domain in China?   

Below is the text of the email I just received...

Dear CEO,
We are the domain name registration service company in Shanghai, China. On February 18, 2022, we received an application from Hongxiang Ltd requested "americanwx" as their internet keyword and China (CN) domain names (americanwx.cn, americanwx.com.cn, americanwx.net.cn, americanwx.org.cn). But after checking it, we find this name conflict with your company name or trademark. In order to deal with this matter better, it's necessary to send email to you and confirm whether this company is your distributor or business partner in China?
 
Best Regards

All this complaining about the wind.  I like the wind.  The noise through the forest, the rattling of the shutters outside the window.  And in the case of a strong storm force wind from the due south, the weather stripping under the front door that sounds like a child playing a kazoo very badly! :D

Only when it gets ridiculous say like that scene in Superman II, that is too much.

What made me think of this ridiculous clip was a video I saw of the storm over in the United Kingdom of people walking and falling over.  Sensationalized press throwing numbers like 122mph winds (obviously a peak reading on the immediate coast).  WS dumps do reveal a widespread event with frequent 60-70 mph gusts occurring in the more urban populated areas.  Similar to the wind event we had here March 02, 2018.

Bring the wind!  Without it, weather cannot change.  And change is what we need.  So sick of this sunshine and rainbows crap! :P
