  1. I think this was the first time I was paged here lol. You are exactly right Tony. Very overblown. As overblown as NAM snowfall maps. As long as everyone stays with masking and social distancing, we should be able to weather any variant that rolls around. Take for example influenza this year. Our cases of influenza are as low as they've ever been in my years of practice. Why? Because people are worried about COVID and are doing those things that the CDC recommended all along--frequent handwashing, etc. The masks and social distancing are helping with the flu the same way they help
  2. Snow mixing back in at home in Wenonah. Still rain at the hospital 6 miles away.
  3. and we're sleet. Still snow at home in Wenonah. Figure they may have another 15-20 minutes before the pinging starts. Hell, it might even be just rain. Surface at 33.5/30.
  4. At the hospital in Washington Township, GlouCo NJ we still have snow, but the sleet line on CC is knocking on my door. Appears to be ENE/WSW oriented now: Bear, DE--Pennsville, NJ--Pitman, NJ--Berlin, NJ--Tabernacle, NJ--Bayville, NJ. I should be mixing and changing over within minutes.
  5. I learned by reading forums and asking questions. From WrightWeather to EasternUSWX to AmericanWX to here, I've had the fortune of interacting with professionals and amateurs alike who are not only remarkably knowledgeable, but they also genuinely like to teach others what they know, and in a way that is either as simplified or as complex as you want it. I started off reading text model MOS. I won't mention specific names because I'll skip someone who doesn't deserve to be skipped but the group here is fantastic. Even the amateur hobbyists here know their stuff, and most of that is tha
  6. Is it just me or has our modeling just gotten substantially WORSE over the years? All the "updates" to the GFS/WRF, the NAM/ETA, and now even the former undisputed king the EURO, and IMHO we aren't any better than we were 20+ years ago. I started watching weather as a wee lad, and when I went to college and discovered the internet and realized that I could see MOS output of all these models (among other things of other models...) I thought I had the keys to the city. And we've always had busts. Literally always. I'm just not sure I've seen a time where so many models have been so wron
  7. This is the best representation of winter model watching I've ever seen:
  8. Yeah, those March 2001 vibes are still there...
  9. I’m in Northern Gloucester County NJ and I woke up this morning and got filled with March 2001 vibes. Not sure why, and I’m not jumping, but that is NOT a comforting feeling. 31/19, had a little period of flurries. watching and waiting.
  10. I pulled mine out for the first time in nearly three years. Totally an observation. Also, a certain sign that the deformation band will continue to trend to the NW and my house will be dryslotted.
  11. It’s not jumping over 6+. It’s knowing what might have been. Remember the Third Law of Weeniedom: When a model—ANY MODEL—shows the weenie’s own backyard jackpotting, it must be correct and all other MOS must be disregarded. ...and it’s corollary: Should verification not match that jackpot model, the storm is inherently a bust, this hobby sucks, and let’s go torch. How many days until Spring??
