Well, the NAM was exciting for the 12z run.
Now it's gone. lol

This keeps shifting north. I think our chances have all but gone for snow on this one.
Probably time to turn out the lights on this winter after Saturday (low% anything good will happen Fri/Sat).

If these models keep sliding the rain/snow line south...us Northern Valley folk may see some wintry weather. Doubtful anything sticks. But who knows. Definitely the last “snow watching” for the season.

This morning's NAM showing a good hit of snow for southeast KY, not that they want it at this point.  Most farmers up there are getting concerned.  With the cold and the continuous rain, they are not able to plow their fields to get ready for spring planting. Worst spring for farmers in recent memory up there.

Winter storm watches hoisted for parts of KY for 3-6" of heavy, wet snow.  Winter won't die.

People were giving winter a grade.

I'm not even going to give this winter a grade. This winter is a high school dropout meth addict who went to juvenile detention weeks ago- no doubt a fixture of the prison system for years to come. After all the grades had been tallied up and report cards sent home to the good kids, this winter got out on probation and has decided to hang out at the school- vandalizing teachers' classrooms and breaking into the championship trophy cases of both the football team and the band and breaking all the trophies. This winter is a reprobate and a menace to society.

Enough already.  >:D

And so we've reached the end of the winter that never was, but wouldn't go away. Like a bad ex

We went to the Nashville Humane Society yesterday and added a little more love to our home. While yesterday's trip was a little spur of the moment, the discussion, want and decision were settled a while ago. Anywho, a happier and fuller home awaits me everyday!

I think we can finally put this thread to bed after the next cold shot.  GFS says the deep reservoir of cold in Canada is shrinking back toward the pole toward month's end.

Not received my monthly report yet. We live the best in our home though. The eco setting has been running strong for 10 days.

You get an energy report from your Nest?! I didn't know they do that. I've been considering upgrading both of our thermostats.

I have 4.5hrs of energy usage in the last 10 days. Should be getting my monthly report tomorrow. My heating bill for all of February was $65. Last year(before the Nest) it was over $200. I am a convert. Plus, I can control it when I am away. It was a gift if I were purchasing myself I may go for the Honeywell version. Though, the Nest is sleek! Installing took about 20mins. I def recommend it is a technological advancement in home climate control.

My monthly Nest report came in moments after my first post. The energy I used, not including the fan for circulation, amounted to 14hrs of energy use. That would be the time my unit spent either cooling or heating my home. As I mentioned earlier my February gas bill was $65 and that included us using our gas fireplace to our hearts conent. My energy usage for February was 22hrs(excluding gas fireplace but, gas bill speaks to that). A Nest or similar smart thermostat will pay for itself in a year or two. Also, our home was built in 1978 it has blown in insulation in the attic but the windows are original to the home.
