They are also at 1600’ in elev which makes sense considering mt pocono at 1800’ doesn’t either 

Well Tom as you know I am all about the facts....so let's go through just the PA locations that have less than or the same number of 90 plus days as Caribou

- No 90 plus days include :KMPO/Bradford/Dubois/Franklin/Johnstown/Meadville

- Only 1 90 + day = Clearfield

- 2 days = Indiana /Washington PA

-How about those within 2 days of East Nantmeal in addition to KMQS Airport

Latrobe - 3 days

State College - 4 days

Selinsgrove - 5 days

We now have thirty 90 degree days thru 8/21st and a better chance of getting another one than not today.   @mshaffer526 remains the clubhouse leader, although  @greg rallsis lurking.  Given the chances of a 90 degree day are increasing for the latter half of next week, @mshaffer526 should bring the dry ice to the PHL sensor ASAP.  He does have the Paul tie breaker vs Greg.  BTW The last time PHL went without a 90 degree day in September was 2011.  Lol if @Parsley keeps on keeping the sleeve of golf balls he does not want as he remains in contention right behind Greg.

 

Greg...............33, 1

TTN................39, 4

Mshaffer........31, 2

Frankdp.........37, 2

Chris..............17, 3

Charlie...........35, 4

Carl................45, 8

Parsley..........34, 1

PreserveJ.....42, 6

Paul..............49, 5

Brian.............22, 10

@mshaffer526 doing victory lap with a perfect score (31/2) as of today and a 90s hiatus on tap. @greg rallsis lurking next. The 90s threat for next week appears meher. Then there is September. The last year PHL went without a 90 degree day in September was 2011.  @Parsley could still keep the sleeve of golf balls he does not want.

Could give out a sleeve of Kirkland balls.  I donated my old cell phone, so I can't give that away although someone might have thought it a great prize.   First <10F min day without snow on the ground = fig destruction?

Sounds good. I work at a golf course I can donate all the high end golf balls one could desire

Is that usually what it is when fig death starts, less than 10?

Yes, Tombo82685 (I am dense after all).  Assuming it has not snowed before.

Not a surprising faster evolution of Dorian may squash the only 90 threat on the horizon, Wednesday the 4th.   Even if one were to occur @mshaffer526 has the tie breaker over @greg ralls because Paul has had two 90 degree days this year.

Yeah you would need two more days to win.  Barring something obscene beyond the first 10 days of this month, great numbers on your part.

You still have the tie breaker.   Don't see any further 90s at this point.

Of course no sniff of 90 in Western Chester County with a high of only 84.7 although down at lake level at Marsh Creek they did hit 87.7

We did have a nice brief shower that left 0.10" in the bucket within the last hour.

It was modeled pretty darn good far out and verified. I’ve seen your 9 iron shots, thing of beauty in my eyes

A new Euro 90 degree threat for next Wednesday (11th) & Thursday (12th).    @mshaffer526 has the tie breaker, but @greg ralls is in the process of moving the blowtorch from KPNE to KPHL.

Nice, let’s go 90s! 

34 here we come! 

Lol, that would be ironic.  You keep the sleeve of balls you don't want.

Euro now has 88F for Wed & 92F for Thu like the GFS.
