I don’t know what’s so hard to understand about that. The dissenting opinions from people were in opposition to folks saying the pattern did not change, and wasn’t heading towards something conducive for winter weather. And nothing was further from the truth. So that’s where folks like you and the pope and Qg got push back. Bottom line fact: pattern changed and became colder and was/is good for winter enthusiasts….we just got/getting shut out due to nuances that can never be seen at length. But the pattern changed, and there is no denying that. It should be clarified that when people like me, Coastal, etc say the pattern is good, it means the longwave pattern. Shortwaves also make up a pattern, but the problem is shortwaves cannot be forecasted more than a few days in advance. So if the shortwaves end up kind of unfavorable, one can claim "the pattern wasn't good".....but that's not how we are using the term "pattern"....we're specifically talking about the longwave pattern and it is clear to me that not everyone in here understands that. Especially the ones that simply use "total snowfall results" as the arbiter of what is a good or bad pattern. We've actually cleaned up before in shit patterns....it's just a lot harder to do (see January 2006....ORH had something like 25" of snow over a 3 week period from 4 different events during a dumpster fire pattern.) 6 3 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
