That storm is severe, Max! Wow!


Well, speaking of storms is anyone really buying the cataclysmic return to winter late next week?

Honestly I just don't see it. Dedicated the last 5 posts or so in my blog with graphics to pointing out why...not to believe...more than to believe.

Positive NAO, no blocking in fact ridging in the maritimes, progressive flow, cold air not rebuilt. Eh, not feeling it!

But alas the models do not drive the weather and we could have a different result come early next week. From where we stand it's not impressive in the least.

Looks like at worst more of the same, sloppy storm, weak, I95 freezing lines, etc.

Why do "we the people" have to pay for the political disputes they have between themselves? Closing lanes of the GW Bridge as revenge? - come on!!

In 2011, one of the most significant winter storms to affect north and central Georgia in years began on the evening of the 9th and continued through much of the 10th. Four to eight inches of snow was common across most of north Georgia north of I-20. South of I-20 and into central Georgia, there was a mix of snow, sleet and freezing rain. Major interstates and roads were impassable across north Georgia for 2 to 3 days and many schools were closed for the entire week.

Looks like it's gun' rain.

Three flood threats.

Frozen ground causing runoff.
Melting snowpacks.
Ice jammed streams, creeks, pond dams, and rivers.

Flash flooding can occur with these ice jams. Anyone who has those creeks that flood in their back yards might see some isolated terrible problems. Ice can also collect and make use of debris in the jams.

Yeah Larry, Astro nor I get those annoying ads anymore. I gave him my only extra free subscription as a birthday present back on Aug 27 last year.

Initially I thought on you Larry but Astro got in the way.
It's just $10 to subscribe for a year of ads free goodness,

I'll be working on some weather maps this morning about the upcoming rainstorm... over 2" of rain for southern Connecticut... big soaking rain

Hello Marvin...

Thanks for dropping by, it's always a pleasure to see you here
Im happy you like my car, unlike some others who have just rained critics on me foolishly nor can afford a new one.

You're one of the good guys for sure, don't change your way of being!
So chilly temperatures made their way down past your house and swam deep into the water? Wow.. I see that a problem with the pipe freezing everywhere. Here we have not had that issue yet, we always leave the faucet dripping.

Again, Im happy to see you here.
Take care
Im hope your health restores to how it was back when you were my age.
Wishes always come true!
Take care and God Bless my friend!


Thanks Max for the encouragement my friend.. :)
I really needed that today.. :)

GB and Peace to you and your loved ones.. :)

PS..
Don't forget to catch a glimpse of the Moon at half stage tonight..
Hopefully you have good visability there tonight..
I like to try and get a look at it when possible..
The light that is bounced to us from the moon is incredibly white in nature..
In fact,one of the current missions to the moon by the Chinese has a experiment to try and understand the phenomenon as it is unique to us..

On another note, Here is my tip for ya:

Join the Army, people with such high levels of determination (aka arrogance) should be put out there to test them out. The Army would be more than happy to assist you with the strength you need.
;)

ps. My friend Colonel Brian can help you out


Eh...no. On both counts. She and I are too different for that.

And, I don't like the military enough to join them. Not my thing.
