Not just locked, but doused with gasoline and incinerated, its ashes dumped at sea.


Not a bad idea.   But gasoline isn't strong enough (for how I feel about this past winter).

So what was the official DJF temp anomaly for BNA?

+4.6, +2.3 and +7.2 respectively. Closer to home... +2.5, +1.1 and +5.7. BNA anomalies tend to be greater than surrounding areas.

For me though, the biggest numerical takeaway is 27.53" - the DJF precip total for Dickson not far from MBY.

I'd say that qualifies as a winter torch. I knew it was warm, but +7.2 for Feb is amazing. What a crap pattern. Thanks for the numbers.  ::applause::

Euro Ens still showing a couple of members with frozen in the long range. I don't expect anything outside of possible flurries, but March will definitely finish cold. Maue posted the March map thus far and it looks like BNA is  a little over -4 for the month.

Wanna know something really depressing? February 2019 was actually COOLER @ BNA than February 2018 and February 2017. A complete shocker if you ask me. Honestly, something has got to give at some point. Either that, or we just got to accept the fact winter is shrinking the further we go out in time. March is -2 at BNA so far...but most outlying suburbs are -3 to -4. Not surprising to see March go cold after a warm February.

That gif is hypnotic. Is that a WWII/Cold War era atom bomb test in the Pacific?

This may be the worst 3-year stretch of winters of my lifetime. We've officially had less than 5" of snow in those 3 winters COMBINED in Oneida. Just incredible.

Agreed.  We typically do well up here, even when everyone else is missing out, especially on marginal events.  I saw flurries a couple of times, but nothing to measure.

Bad 3 year stretches aren't unusual for BNA, though the plateau is a different story. In my time in TN, 1997-98, 1998-99, 1999-00 was the first 3 year run of pedestrian winters, but each of them had an event of 2"+ at my location. 2001-02 was meh but also had a random multi-inch hit that season. 2003-04, 2004-05, 2005-06, 2006-07 was a rough 4-year run for most in middle. It almost went 5 in 2007-08, but that spring break snow March 2008 saved the day. Here's a question for west/middle TN posters: What 3-year stretch was rougher? 2011-12 --> 2013-14 (snowdome winter) or 2016-17 --> 2018-19?

The difference between 2011-12 and 2018-19 is that nobody got a date for the prom in 2011-12 whereas in 2018-19 everyone in the high school did except for our crew.   

Watching areas in the West, Midwest, and Interior Northeast rock out while we sit out in the rain was quite the winter weather weenie gut punch.

That seems to be the rule now, not the exception.

One (maybe the) least snowy winter remember I can recall across the South as a whole. No snow in SF. It wasn't warm but the coldest it got in the city was 40.
