I pulled the trigger on a thread.

We know who to blame/praise now!

The Euro and CMC are shockingly similar with the second system on Tue-Wed next week. The Euro is nearly a statewide 2-4. The GFS squashes it into the Gulf. Two to track!

Thinking of starting an East TN thread for all us over here to talk about a big fat nothing burger!  Hope y'all cash in out west!

Threat for next week (beyond the weekend threat) is looking to be something to watch too.  Both the Euro and GFS have a little something that hints at another winter event.  GFS was warm last night, but who cares at this range with the 0 line so close.

The euro control fwiw wasnít like the hi res at all. It was a major hit in west TN.
Which one is better at this range?

Put on my big snow boots and
I boarded the plane
Touched down in the land of the Delta Blues
In the middle of the freezing rain

Snow up high
Won't you pour down over me
Yeah, I got some accretion
But I'm as blue as a boy can be

Thought I would share this with y'all. This morning at 10 am I was still able to walk on the ice in our duck hole. The water averages waist deep. It took about an hour to break the last 100 yards of the boat trail with the boat. It has been a very unusual warm up after a big freeze. The gloomy chilly days do not have any thawing power. I don't ever remember it taking this long to thaw after a freeze up.

Pond that borders my property is still frozen.  I haven't checked the thickness lately, but the cold spell that lasted for nearly two weeks froze it much harder than I've seen since moving here.

Is it wrong that I enjoyed the 69 degrees we had today due to downsloping winds??  ::pondering::  Nah, even a winter weather weenie can enjoy a break from sub-freezing air once in awhile.   ;D

I know all the talk at the moment is about the possible weekend storm but after so much dry cold when it hits the mid 60s with bright sunshine you walk away from the desk and take your dog for a long walk at the park.  Work of course piled up while I was gone but it was totally worth it.  I'll have plenty of cold, ugly days next week to put in long hours.

If we can't have snow, might as well be 60.    ;)

We have not seen the sun in days and days. Can not be anymore gloomy than it has been here. The warm up did feel good.

What's pretty impressive so far this winter, and certainly different from the last few years, is the long duration of the cold snaps.  Usually, we have our storm/cold front followed by two days of colder weather, then warm right back up into the 50's.  The cold spell we just came out of lasted two weeks, and the cold coming back in looks to last well into late next week.  It's quite the reversal from our usual winter fare.  The warm weather has become brief, and the cold has staying power.  If only every winter was like this. .

Wasn't 2014 on par?
