    it is so very cool to see our Southern Boys and Girls get theirs and to see their Joy. Good for you guys. Enjoy it. I have a strong feeling this is going to be a very exciting winter for many up and down the East Coast

    Banter Thread: Winter 2018-19 Edition

    Fair enough, no disrespect meant of course. Its my own effort to temper my own expectation, nothing more or less. I realize Im not the only snow lover in here by any means, or even the only snow extreme snow lover. Suffice it to say, if the 18 Z's start to offer some hope Ill be the first one in line to listen

    I know its 4.5 days away, but I am glad I have kept any wishcasting of the ''its coming north '' variety at bay. We have a long winter ahead. Though its not 100% over for this one, good thing meteorological winter hasnt even started yet and the Euro Monthlies sure offer up hope for Jan.

    Such bitter irony: what we desire with such desperation, the 50/50 low is, ultimately, along with the Pac trough, winds up delivering the kill shot to us and the super goods about 800 miles to the south. But its alright, we are half a foot above seasonal average, long term outlooks are extremely optimistic. Let the southern Mid Atlantic get theirs!

    And yes the naysayers will, OF COURSE, say, with some justification, NAM way outta of its range. BUT, and it is a big but, how many times, especially with the big ones, in the last several years has the NAM been stubbornly right about BIG Dogs?
  6. Extremely so. At the time, naturally, most of us, thought it was off its rocker but it was super aggressive, a bit more than the Euro, if I recollect correctly.
  7. Lets remember how beautifully the ICON handled our past SECS #JUSTSayin #OptimismInTheAir

    After what looks to be slightly north of 4 inches of beautiful snow the pingers look to have arrived here. No complaints from me whatsoever! A beautiful surprise, would have been happy with 4 flakes, let alone 4 inches.

    Was undergrad and I remember it very very well. Was undergrad in New Brunswick ( that year in an apt. on the Bush campus). Good times! Let's GO RU

    being right in the middle of LaGuardia and JFK, and with JFK having received two inches in the last hour I can most certainly confirm that is the case here. Approximately three and a half inch on the ground, snow intensity down slightly to closer to an inch an hour now

    just stepped outside into 2 inch an hour snowfall. Comfortably 2 inches on the ground. Medium size cotton balls falling. We got kissed by the sky today ladies and gentlemen. And one more hour of kissing should necessitate a winter storm warning in the local New York City metro area

    There are few things more pleasant than a huge bust up- Welcome to over performer land folks. Usually there is great joy in here during snow events but there is something spectacularly special about a very last minute bust up. To put it in perspective as late as the noon forecasts- 1 hour before storm time- every single major local TV station had no more than 1-2 inches and most had less than an inch in the 5 boroughs. We have an outside shot at an SECS - half a foot on Nov 15. Sit back and smile. This bodes so well for the winter- but for now breathe and go dance with the magical cotton balls falling out of the sky. To Breathe joy is to live... so live.
