  1. Several of my Houston coworkers were essentially trapped at their workplace on the west side of Houston because there was no safe route to get to locations well east of there. I haven't heard anything from corporate and assume that everyone is okay.
  2. Drove from Middletown, DE to Aston, PA with all the windows down. Glorious out!
  3. Wow how in the world did it squeeze 43 inches out of that? My Houston coworkers are going to give me the business for not warning them.
  4. I moved to Delaware in 2006 and never had occasion to browse snowfall maps for the winter of 1995-1996. Wowzer after looking at Ray's site!
  5. NOAA says 75% chance la Nada. Detailed discussion below. https://www.cpc.ncep.noaa.gov/products/analysis_monitoring/lanina/enso_evolution-status-fcsts-web.pdf
  6. Sadly, I won't make it. My daughter's hockey team asked me to volunteer at a team-building meeting. I hope to see everyone at some point and verify that you're not just a bunch of bots.
  7. I wonder if these magnificent devices are sold on Amazon Tokyo’s novel approach to a hot Olympics: Snow cannons https://www.washingtonpost.com/sports/2019/09/13/worried-about-tokyo-heat-summer-games-organizers-experiment-with-snow-cannons/
  8. I guess the 3-3 PHL ATL score right now is "fake news".
  9. Also in a crazy coincidence, it's the 50th anniversary of Scooby Doo. Jinkies!
  10. Maybe you need to look over your forecast tools again? Obviously, next week will include four instances of 90+. I also hear that Paul atop Mt. Nantmeal is going to torch on two of those days. (and I don't even golf...)
  11. Thanks for posting this, Mitch. Hopefully the temps/qpf combo doesn't result in warm & wet followed by a late season of cold & dry. I'm not a huge fan of that kind of pattern.
  12. It's too bad this board is apolitical. There's a juicy weather-related story out there with legs.
  13. Were you riding a bicycle with square wheels when you made this gif? 😀
  14. I used to really enjoy the changing focus of craft brewers until they shifted towards much more hoppy and less malty. There are way too many IPAs out there crowding out some very tasty 2018-era beers like American or Imperial takes on classic Belgian beer styles. I agree with Jim that there is such a rush to produce a lot of brews according to the "it" style of the moment. With sooo many craft brewers, it's gotten really hard for them to be creative. A case in point: I used to find an All Star draft list at any of the Two Stones Pubs, but now they're focusing on hoppier or on downright weirdly flavored beers that are brewed just for the sake of weirdness. Thank God for the dependability of a good dry martini...
  15. Not that I ever follow the Farmer's Almanac, but shifts towards extreme weather have messed up winter so much that I don't put stock in anyone's forecast, except Tom's, Tony's, and Chubbs' of course
  16. Wow I might actually get a storm here tonight.
  17. While I am not a pumpkin spice fan and find very few pumpkin ales to actually be drinkable (like Southern Tier's offerings), I'll be glad when craft brewers start focusing on cold weather brews. I'm pretty sick of summer beers.
  18. One year, we unwittingly bought a Christmas tree with a nest in it. By Christmas morning, we had infant mantises crawling all over the family room carpet. My wife was really creeped out.
  19. But here's the problem. Now that I've seen all the blues, Snowlurker's law mandates that future forecasts will flip the blues to oranges, salmons and reds. Maybe I should avoid this thread until 11/30 as a favor to the entire forum...🤔
