Thunder Road Posted December 22, 2019 Report Share Posted December 22, 2019 A lot of NWS offices are doing it on social media (though I'm no help at MQT having only been here for the last 15% of the decade) but it got me thinking what the Philly area ones would be. So I've got a Google form drafted up, but before I push that out, I want a complete list of events to vote on. The voting will ask you to how impactful, memorable, or just plain enjoyable each event was on a scale of 1 to 5 (5 highest) - NOT to explicitly rank them. We'll let the final numbers speak for themselves to determine the highest 10, and their rank. (Does that make sense? You could say each and every one on the list was 5 out of 5 if you wanted - but that wouldn't help the ranking at all.) However I may need some help filling in blind spots from the years I wasn't living in the Philly area. I've broken down the events by category here, but in the end it will be a simple top-ten with no regard to type of event. Suggestions for things I'm missing? So far I have...
