What? Yes, Its snowing :) - Page 2

post #31 of 45

That's some pretty rough sledding over in NC. We essentially have the same thing going on here in SW Pa. Almost went golfing this PM but its so soggy I decided against it. I think it started sprinkling again a little while ago.

 

I keep checking the 15 day forecast hoing it has changed. Looks better, but still not the kind of weather that will allow for a big correction for the local conditions. Winter this season is more than being stubborn.  Been living here now for 31 seasons, so far I think this one is shaping up to be either the worst or next to the worst by New Years.

 

I'm heading back to Colorado the end of next month with much anticapation. I Was hoping to get a number of good days in here before that. I wonder if we can recover by mid month January if we will be fortunate enough to avoid a January thaw !

 

Hang in there everybody sooner or later Right?

I'm looking at a real possibility that I'll actually need to mow my lawn in JANUARY.  I don't recall ever having to do that in the past, even when I lived in Texas...

I had to water my lawns this week because they were drying out like it was May or something.  Yeah, weird.

While I still appreciate Finn's sacrifices, check your map of Colorado to see where they got the most snow and where the ski areas are before we go asking Finn to break the rest of himself to duplicate these efforts elsewhere...unless you're actually looking for a foot of snow in Raleigh.

I know the city side had higher totals than the resort side did.  Still a worthy return.  And as for Raleigh?  Durham would be better.  It's been awhile since the last time we got over 20"  We're due..

Hey, if they got 20" where it counts, I'd fully support Finn's further destruction. biggrin.gif

Nope.  Foothills and urban corridor storm.  6" was a good score in resort country, although best in a month has to count for something.

Well....easterly upslope storms suck for the NW corner of Colorado just as northwesterly storms dry out the eastern third of Colorado, but upslope most definitely does not suck since it is the only way you get big snow in big mountains.

 

La Nina is weak this year, and weak La Nina's do not tend to create that persistent strong NW flow pattern that is so good for so many major Western resorts.  Forecast for next week is 'zonal flow'.  If you like weather in the Rockies that means big snow accums, 'zonal flow' is not what you want to hear...

Hey, I thought this was the time of year when the jolly old elf made his way through inclement weather in order to give gifts, not to reap rewards th_dunno-1[1].gif

 

Seriously though, the image of Ski-ra rockin' the trees with billows of snow flowing over his head sorta warms my heart.  Yeah, almost as much as your indomitable spirit.  I hope to ski some groomers with you in a month or so!

 

Do you own a pair of carvers?

Yeah usually Ira and I make this the annual pilgrimage into the trees but at least he got it this year.  I would be honored to ski with you. I have a pair of MX78's that will serve me well and a pair of S3's that I thought might be a good choice too.

Good news in central Wisconsin, we are expecting an entire inch of snow today!  Skiing has actually been good for the last two weeks on man made snow.  This will freshen us up very nicely. 

 

Should I take powder boards today?

 

Decisions, decisions.  Sking can be so complicated.
