  1. mandatory for every weenie's bookcase https://bookstore.ametsoc.org/catalog/book/northeast-snowstorms-volume-i-overview-volume-ii-cases
  2. Awesome, thanks for the verification Rec'd my 1st 2 notifications earlier that lightning was 23-25 miles away
  3. Let's not forget that Doug was a last resort choice when the Eagles hired him in 2016. Ben McAdoo, Adam Gase, Hue Jackson, Dirk Koetter & Mike Mularkey were all ahead of him on the Eagles wish list - LOL. After Doug's initial 7-9 season the Eagles went so as to interview Jim Schwartz & it was just reported that they pressed Pederson to fire Frank Reich. The Eagles front office continued to undercut Pederson by embarrassing him last year with the forced out of Mike Groh & apparently again this week with the rejection of Pederson's choice of Press Taylor as OC. While it's clear
  4. The last game of the Joe Kuharich era was arguably the most infamous in Philadelphia fan history. As Ray Didinger pointed out what was originally a blip in the press story the following day has grown into legend & is still parroted to this day. There is certainly a lot of context to the event as well as an embellishment of the actual proceedings. The article below is an example, "immense amount of snowfall the day before", reality was that PHL only reported 2.6" of snow & the most I could find reported anywhere in the immediate metro area was 5". https://www.thedp.com/articl
  5. I wish Howie was also packing his bags, in fact based on his abysmal performance Roseman should have been fired in a matter of minutes after the season ended. Have to believe the Wentz situation was a factor here, good chance he'll be back now. Best news is Heisey won't have to change his screen name on the other board.
  6. Played Eagle Ridge in Lakewood, NJ for the 1st time Thursday, very nice 27 hole public course. Greens were still pretty wet however the rest of the course was in great shape as it drains well over in that area. Unfortunately the new ownership leaves much to be desired & are looking to develop the property that's not on the landfill. Quite a battle going on with the local residents who are fighting the development. WED / THURS this week looking like nice winter golfing days.
  7. Talk about the tale of 2 different worlds for locations not that far apart in the same forecast office. Binghamton - 55.5" of snow, season to date, 183% of average Syracuse - 16.9" of snow, season to date, 33% of average
  8. not sure about the island but here in Lower Bucks the JAN 1987 & FEB 1987 storms were awesome, JAN storm was close to foot, great rates & thunder / lightning, rain or snow was up in the air right until game time but that one broke right in a big way Feb 1987 was amazing, 18-19" at 320' just 5-6 miles north of Philly, most of that falling in 7 hrs., crazy 4"(+)/hr rates with that storm, all of that preceded by a beautiful sunny near 50 degree afternoon Besides the wicked cold winters the other thing that jumps out at me locally about the 1980's were the kick arse thunderstorms
  9. other notable 80's events from my Lower Bucks / NE Philly perspective: 7/16/80 MCS: was in Feasterville that afternoon, leftover complex from the great MI derecho earlier that morning, still the strongest winds I've ever experienced definitely over 80mph, neighboring Bensalem reported a gust over 100mph, Lower Bucks / NE Philly crush job. This is still the 3rd or 4th largest thunderstorm related PECO outage on record. August 1980: heat, until 2016 the hottest AUG on record at Philly 12/24-25/1980: white Christmas / arctic blast, quick 2" of snow the afternoon of Christmas Eve fo

  12. Family & friends threw my a surprise 30th b-day party the SAT evening just before the storm. Instead of devoting my full attention to the festivities I'm frequently ducking up to the bedroom to check out TWC & watch the radar for any sign precip moving up from the south. Once I saw that green around DC latter in the evening I was able to relax & really enjoy the gig. After a long night & substantial alcoholic intake I got up just before 7:00 & it was already snowing steadily with a temp of only 11 degrees. The only time I can remember it colder during a snowstorm was FEB 20
  13. Walt says time to punt if no changes by the 12Z runs tomorrow
  14. weak sauce event locally: 0.14" - CoCo, 0.07" am total & 0.07" pm total 0.13" - Ambient 0.14" - Tempest, looks good for the final however the morning total (0.11") was too high & the pm total (0.03") was too low 0.96" for the month (CoCo)
