  1. This is the part I hate. Sitting... waiting... Yes, we know the pattern is changing, but everyone wants to see concrete evidence, they want to see a big snowstorm barreling toward us like a giant avalanche. I know because that's what I want. But I (we) have to be patient. We've had our 60 days of cold, 30 days of warmth, so it's now time for our 60 days of cold again. Winter is knocking on the doorstep, no question about it. But until the models can get it all figured out... we wait for our storms. I have a lot of pictures of me when I was younger and growing up in Nashville, playing in

    Fixing up the Wife's car

    The car we bought for my wife isn't quite as nice as the one i drive. And it's not that it's not nice, it's just that it's one year older and has 53,000 miles on it, so the exterior could use a little bit of a facelift. I would like for hers to look as good as the other car, so I decided it was time for a few changes. I ordered some new wheels for the car, and they are exactly the same wheels as I have on my V, Renick Performance RP556 in gloss black. These are the max wheel and tire sizes that can be stuffed in the wheel well of these cars. On mine I put 265/30-19 Michelin PS4S tires on

    Well.... my wife really needed a nicer car as hers was getting old and she has been a Cadillac girl since she had her 2001 Cadillac SLS in Obsession Red. So.... we found one a little newer in the color she likes. 🙂 This is the newest addition to the family... a 2016 ATS-V sedan. 🙂 Yes, another ATS-V. This one is a little special though. It looks pretty unassuming doesn't it? Just your normal Cadillac if you didn't know any better. But if you thought you might like to have a little run against it, you had better come loaded for bear. This car was built to be the fastest

    Friday, August 30

    Good morning! I guess you heard the rain moving through during the overnight hours, it is now pushed southeast of Lincoln and today to should a relatively dry day to kick off the ProSolo! This is a combined radar/water vapor loop, and the numbers are dewpoints. Much drier air is moving into southeast Nebraska and today should feel great. About 15 seconds into the loop I switch from dewpoint to temperatures. Lincoln Friday AM.mp4 The NWS hour by hour forecast looks great for today, but tomorrow may be damp at times.

    Day 3 Saturday - We Arrive

    EDIT: This RSS import really messes with the blog post. This is a better link: http://blog.northgeorgiawx.com/new-england-trip/day-3-saturday-we-arrive We made it! We arrived in West Yarmouth about 4:30 pm on Saturday. Along the way we stopped to visit two lighthouses in Rhode Island and eat a lobster roll. 🙂 I've added a few pictures and a couple of videos below. Most were taken at the two lighthouses or on the way to them. Oh... and my lobster roll. 🙂 You can't forget the lobster roll. We're just getting started so I'll have lots more pictures and videos. Now is when it

  6. After the fiasco from yesterday, we have decided to skip the stop in Philly to see Independence Hall, and I think that decision proved to be a wise one. Also... if you travel and use Google Maps... just know that the drive times you see is probably not going to be the time you actually spend on the road. Obviously Google doesn't know how many times you're gonna stop, and it doesn't know how fast you'll travel among other things. The bridge you see in the picture above is one of many on the Merritt Parkway in Connecticut. Each bridge is a little different, but each one is very fancy. Tho
