  1. Turns out the weather ended up cooperating quite nicely out there and helped produce one exciting race.
  2. Win some and lose some I guess. Thank you for the information. They did redo the track surface that allows them to dry it a lot faster (they claim an hour, I think it was about an hour and a half last Sunday) so if they get a 3 hour window they should still be able to get it in.
  3. I know this board focuses here on Southeast PA, but would some with access to the models be able to tell me what the weather for Indianapolis, IN looks like on Sunday? The forecast from the NWS for out there is really confusing to me. As I've mentioned before, I'm a big racing fan, and if there's one race a year I wish for no rain to affect it's the Indianapolis 500.
  4. KRDG is reporting it's 76 degrees with a dew point of 62 degrees. If I'm being honest, I'm not expecting much from today. It just doesn't seem like the pieces are there, but I'm also no weather expert. On the other hand, I expected nothing this past Sunday and ended up getting a nice storm out of it.
  5. This is probably wishful thinking, but any chance the rain on Sunday moves out by 2 PM or so?
  6. Well, the Mike Trout news this morning certainly felt like a dagger to the heart for this fan that was hoping to see him in a Phillies uniform one day. On the other hand, I would have thought he was out of his mind if he would have turned down $430 million.
  7. I saw an incredible underdog story unfold this past weekend. The high school I graduated from sent 10 kids to the PIAA Individual Wrestling Class AA Southeast Regional this past weekend. After the tournament, 5 of the 10 wrestlers are headed to the state tournament starting on Thursday, which is a school record. The incredible underdog story comes from their 182-pound weight class wrestler though. This was a wrestler that lost his starting spot and didn't earn it back until halfway through January. From there he went on to finish 3rd at Sectionals and 3rd at Districts (District 3). Starting in the lower half of the Regional bracket meant he was on the same side of the bracket as the District 11 and District 1/12 champions. After scoring a quick pin fall victory in the first round, he had to wrestle the District 11 champion in the quarterfinals, where he scored a stunning 4-2 win in the sudden victory overtime period. Next up was the District 1/12 champion, and after a close 2-2 bout during the third period, the District 1/12 champion scored a late takedown to go up 4-2. The underdog would not be denied though, and hit a Peterson Roll for a reversal and two back points with just five seconds remaining to win 6-4. Then during the final, after giving up a takedown in the 1st period and an escape to start the second to go down 3-0, he held off an opposing takedown attempt, got the upper hand, and pulled off the pin fall victory at the 3:17 mark to put an exclamation point on an amazing underdog story.
  8. Nah, just a fan. The high school I graduated from has been on a roll this season, and has 10 kids competing this weekend. It sounds like 1-3" overnight, so it might delay the start time of the tournament tomorrow but otherwise shouldn't have much of an effect I would think.
  9. I'm just taking a guess here since I didn't have a measuring device with me, but I'm fairly certain there was at least 3" of snow in Sinking Spring when I woke up this morning.
  10. I'm sorry to be that guy, but what is the time frame on this? Usually I am able to follow along fairly well, but the information for this one just doesn't seem as coherent as other threats. It appears that Berks County may be taking the brunt of this, and the PIAA Wrestling Class AA Southeast Regional is tonight and tomorrow at Wilson West Lawn. I'll be perfectly honest in that I'm interested how this may affect that tournament.
  11. I'd rather have Harper than Machado, but I'm also not convinced that either player was worth the amount they got. I guess we'll see. Hopefully this convinces Mike Trout that it's worth coming here in a couple years. Also, since it was mentioned, I'd be willing to pay to see Rhys Hoskins play in Philadelphia if I could afford it. I enjoyed watching him play a few minutes away in Reading and I'm always more interested in the home grown players usually.
  12. I just know I'm going to get stuck having to travel to work unfortunately. After a big meeting back in December about how the company would be more lenient about working from home in inclement weather, they never updated any official documentation and are seemingly doing a big 180 about it.
  13. A frozen mist here in Sinking Spring. I opted for the work from home option today and watching this system has been crazy. An hour ago it was absolutely dumping precipitation here.
  14. It appears the NWS has upgraded Berks County to a Winter Storm Warning with a possible 5-7 inches of snow. This forecast seems aggressive to me based on what I've read here and in the thread in the Short Term section. Did some model runs this afternoon cause them to bump totals up?
