  1. Hit the losing two minutes of daylight mark at my house today
  2. The cut back to 25% capacity is only for indoor dinning. All the restaurants that I've seen have been doing quiet well with outdoor dinning. My town of Phoenixville has been fantastic in helping the local restaurants/breweries/bars. Bridge street, which is our main street through town, is closed to cars 2pm Thursday - 10pm Sunday every weekend. All the establishments can now extend seating into the street, it's really nice. We need more creative ideas like this during this time!
  3. I read an article from a virologist (i'll see if i can find it) a few months ago, stating that its possible that all the other Coronavirus strains that still affect us, which make up around 25% of the common colds we experience may have had a similar affect on humanity when they first came to be. Maybe after the actual pandemic is over, this sticks around with us as a common cold like illness. That could just be an optimistic view on this though.
  4. Not a fan of the winds as well, but MAN does it feel nice out this morning. Didn't think the lower dews would move in this quick.
  5. Yeah I gotcha. I'm just into the sun angle and daylight timing lately lol. This is a fantastic site that gives great detail - Calculation of sun’s position in the sky for each location on the earth at any time of day
  6. I have the 26th as the latest sunset at my house. We're only talking 20 seconds later though
  7. Posting these the next day from my parents house, as I haven’t had power since noon yesterday. Peco is saying it won’t be back until 11 tonight. No actual damage at my house thankfully.
  8. Only 12 days until the earliest Sunrise of the year
  9. Thanks, I think that's what i'm going to try. Cant hurt other than a few dollars lost! Then overseed in the fall like you said.
  10. So I had some major plumbing/sewer issues the last couple weeks, which ended in me having to replace the whole pipe from my house to the street.. My back yard looks like a WW1 battlefield. Is it too late to try and planet seed this weekend?
  11. 101: highest temperature 39: 90 or higher 219: svr/tor warnings
  12. I’m just happy about a week without much precipitation in the middle of February, dire times. Looks like February 2002 was our last snowless one. This month makes it now five straight bad February’s.
  13. I would take the 11-12 winter over this one for sure. At least it was dry that season!
  14. It’s all subjective but 15-16 was terrible for 90% of the time. (I was out of the country for the blizzard, so I personally saw only 5 inches fall ugh) 16-17 was bad, 17-18 good, 18-19 subpar, 19-20 terrible. My thoughts on how winters are around here may be a bit inflated, with me really getting into winter storms around 2005. I look at the 80’s and 90’s and a shiver goes down my spine. I mean hey, a normal person would say this was a great winter lol
  15. Yeah I’m out. Sure looking like the worst winter of my lifetime. Even in 11-12 we had a 3” by now. This winter has been warm, wet and snowless, literally 0 for 3. The last half of the decade has been rough.
  16. Phoenixville, PA 0.5” - 12/11 0.25” - 12/18 0.5” - 1/7 1.5” - 1/18 Total - 2.75” Days with snow cover - 3
  17. Phoenixville, PA 0.5” - 12/11 0.25” - 12/18 0.5” - 1/7 1.25” - Season Total The season of penny snowfalls so far
  18. If that then turns to February 2007, I wouldn’t complain that much. That year had the famous Vday Sleet storm. Looks like that year got better/more active around January 20th as well.
  19. Yeah that’s true about our region, have to move north I guess. I’m looking at it as we had 2 good 4 week stretches in 17-18, but what was the last one besides those? February-March 2015? Maybe I’m just being negative because of the current pattern and outlook.
  20. I don’t know man, the last 4-5 winters haven’t been that good in general around here. I know it’s all subjective but 15-16 the general pattern sucked, we lucked into one storm that I wasn’t even in the country to experience (still salty about that lol). 16-17 was bad. 17-18 was a good winter, but even that one we had a bad 6-7 week stretch. 18-19 was subpar, and so far this winter has been bad, but too early for sure to say that with finality. The first half of the decade definitely was way better that’s for sure.
  21. Phoenixville, PA 0.5” - 12/11 0.25” - 12/18 0.75” - Season Total
  22. This hurts my heart. Everyone else at our latitude in the country has ample snow.
