I remain incredulous toward my ongoing saga with the maintenance staff.
Picture a lovely, turn of the 20th century tudor-style mansion. Picture this mansion turned a'la-frat. And now picture this mansion turned into a small dormitory. Understandably so, given its age and location (yes, the northwestern-most Lake Cayuga bluff is probably not the most ideal for insulation), my residential hall is probably not t...

Another busy weather period is likely over the next 48 hours as a strong low pressure moves up the east coast. It's Gulf of Mexico origins will allow it to bring significant moisture and bring winter weather impacts from Florida to Maine. The forecast, however, is not overly difficult. The synoptic setup is pretty straight forward. For those who own Paul Kocin's, "Northeast Snowstorms Volume 1/2" books, this is v...

Operational Forecasting Techniques for the February 5-6 Winter Storm
To create a weather forecast requires the use of an infinite amount of data and guidance. With the technological advances over the last decade, meteorologists can now predict weather forecasts with a reasonable accuracy in a two week or so lead time. This is a remarkable advance in the atmospheric sciences community. However, there are times when the bas...
