  1. Who would have imagined that with ALL this moisture, coming in so many rounds consistently over the winter, that we would have a dud year for wintery precipitation? It sure seems that as we go into March, our window for snow is over. WOuldn't you say?
  2. At this point, I'm thinking Spring should just come on ahead and get here. If I can't be all giddy about snowy stuff, I'd rather get out and work in the yard!
  3. Don't be mad, but I'm going to try to pray this away. My college student has no experience driving in snow and that's when he'll be on the road. (Murphy's law as it pertains to weather says that this will now be a blizzard.)🤪
  4. Have a great day! I'm glad you have sunshine to celebrate! Thanks for all you do!
  5. Am I correct in thinking that the snow chances have gone "Poof?" Or is this one of those peekaboo situations where it will disappear and then reappear?
  6. I knew this would happen: the potential for snow on Saturday. Because my college kid has to travel home for their break. I sure hope it holds off till Sunday!
  7. That is my motto, too. Better to have it and not need it, than to need it and not have it. It's just smart.
  8. It was so much fun! We got at least an inch at my house, probably a tad more than that. Now -- with all the wet systems tracking through, the question is: will another coincide with cold?
  9. Speaking as a former midwesterner, I can say that the sky definitely looks like snow!
  10. We survived the Blizzard of 2020... 🤣
  11. I know I should know this -- but is this the kind of thing we want to see? Doesn't it send cold in our direction (to maybe mix with some moisture?)
  12. I just think it is all super interesting!!! If I weren't so mathematically disabled, I might have majored in Earth and Atmospheric Sciences in college. It's neat stuff!
  13. I have been wondering about something. I'm not sure I can articulate it the way it is in my brain, but I'll try to make a sensible question out of it. The past several years, it seems like we would get these long rang forecasts with "all the signals" pointing towards wintery weather. It seemed like many weather people were willing to go out on a limb and feel very confident that we would have exciting winters because of X, Y, and Z - with computer maps and heat blobs in the ocean and displaced blobs in Alaska, etc. etc. My question is -- are those signs and signals no longer reliable? Has something changed about weather/climate/the planet in this 21st century? Weather-wise, does 2 + 2 not equal 4 anymore? If so, I think this would be fascinating to meteorologists everywhere. Big shifts in how weather plays out across the globe. OR -- is it a matter of us having too much technology available for information? Along the same lines as an article I read the other day, about cancers being "over diagnosed" because the machines/scans/tests etc. are so very sensitive that they can detect things that really should not go into making a diagnosis. Could this be happening with weather forecasting also? Are the computer programs so smart that they are TOO smart? Seeing things that they would not have seen 20 years ago? I think it is all really interesting!
  14. Oh good! I'm in the Fun Zone then! Fingers crossed! 😁
