About this blog

QUOTES FROM THE ACCUWEATHER.COM FORUMS

Compiled by Bobbo428 a.k.a. Bingobobbo, 2008-2018

 

Note:  Quotes are arranged in chronological order of posting—unless I was unable to find the quote, then it is by date the quote made my weekly top 100. if any of you have quotes that you like and want to see in this blog, I will insert them. Unfortunately, I often ended up helping my mother shovel during many of the big storms of the past decade, which means I missed out on some fun quotes because she often had no Internet connection. However, there were some storms I was able to follow.

 

2008-09

 

1.             THIS IS CRITICAL BECAUSE IT COULD MEAN PHASING

                FURTHER EAST, WHICH WOULD RESULT IN A

                DEVELOPMENT OF LOW PRESSURE ALONG THE COAST

                RATHER THAN ONE WHICH ESSENTIALLY RIDES UP

                THE ALPS!—THE SWISS ALPS? LOL, U MEAN APPS?                           BOSTON WINTER08 (?)

               from 12-28-08—I was unable to find this quote in the back posts, but it was the very first one ever to make my weekly top 100, on Jan. 2, 2009.

2.             IF THERE IS AN AFTERLIFE FOR SNOW LOVERS,

                PHILADELPHIA IS HECK                                                                 BES21

               from post of 1-9-09

3.             EARLIER ICE + EARLIER WARMTH = EARLIER UMBRELLA                NYC SUBURBS

               from his post of 1-27-09

4.             JUST STARTED SNOWING HERE, MUCH LATER THAN

                REALLY WAS FORECASTED, WHICH WILL PROBABLY DROP

                AMOUNTS AS IF IT EVEN MATTERS AT THIS POINT. THIS

                IS JUST GOING TO BECOME A DRIVING RAINSTORM

                TOMORROW, A COLD, VERY PAINFUL RAIN STORM. AFTER

                ALL THE COLD AIR WE'VE HAD AROUND, FINALLY THE

                MOISTURE COMES AND IT DOES WHAT IT ALWAYS SEEMS

                TO DO. UGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGH.                                                  JWILSON

               from post of 1-27-09 –about what I believe was an Apps runner because it was snow-to-ice for us.

5.             I SAID BACK IN NOVEMBER THAT THIS WAS TO BE A LA

                NIÑA WINTER....MANY POSTERS SLAMMED ME...GUESS

                WHAT IT WAS A LA NIÑA....NANANANANANA!!!!!!!!                       CRANKEE YANKEE

               I was unable to find this member’s profile, but the quote made my top 100 on 5/15/09. Date of post unknown.

6.             YEAH, CAN'T RULE THINGS OUT FOR THE HIGHER

                ELEVATIONS. HOWEVER, THE 540 LINE IN OCTOBER IS LIKE

                THE 540 LINE IN APRIL                                                                                     WEATHER JUNKIE

                from his post of 10-6-09—I believe this was about the freak mid-October storms that were on the horizon.

7.             THE ACORNS STARTED FALLING IN MY POOL IN AUGUST

                AND THEY’RE STILL FALLING ALL OVER THE PLACE; MY

                BACKYARD  IS COVERED IN THEM                                                             NOREASTERO93

                from his post of 10-12-09

8.             I SEEM TO ONLY CASH IN ON THESE WEAK CLIPPER EVENTS.

                OTHERWISE THE STORM IS TOO WEST AND IT RAINS,

                STORMS TOO FAR EAST AND ITS JUST A LITTLE SNOW OR

                THE STORM IS JUST RIGHT BUT THE AIR IS TOO DRY                                        

                AND CAUSES VIRGA.                                                                                       HCKYPLAYER08

                From his post of 11-20-09

9.             THAT SECONDARY DOESN'T REALLY DEVELOP OVER WATER.

                IT DEVELOPS INLAND. USUAL SUSPECTS INLAND WILL HAVE

                A SHOT AT SOME WINTRY PRECIP. USUAL SUSPECTS THAT

                GET NOTHING BUT RAIN WILL GET NOTHING BUT RAIN.   WEATHERJUNKIE

                from his Dec. 6, 2009 storm post—about the Great Lakes cutter that—surprisingly—dumped 6 inches of front-end snow before the inevitable rains came.

10.           …BY TOMORROW WE SHOULD ALL SEE A RISE IN DEW POINTS,

                OTHERWISE WE WILL HAVE AN ALL OUT VIRGA BLIZZARD, IT

                WOULD BE A BIRD STORM (NOT A FISH STORM).                                   NYC SUBURBS

                From his post of 12-18-09   (Mid Atlantic storm of Dec. 19)                                                                        

11.          PERSONALLY I COULDN'T CARE LESS IF THEY

               WISHCAST, BITTERCAST, SWEETCAST, SOURCAST,

               FLYCAST, OR ANY OTHER KIND OF CAST. I MEAN NO

              MATTER IF YOU ARE A PART TIME WEATHER WEENIE OR A

              PROFESSIONAL METEOROLOGIST, THE WEATHER IS GONNA

              DO WHAT THE WEATHER IS GONNA DO, NO MATTER HOW

              WELL PEOPLE THINK THEY CAN "FORECAST".                                   UMFKGRAD02

             from his post of  12-19-09  

12.          IT'S SNOWING SO HARD HERE IN NW NJ I CAN'T

                BELIEVE IT!!!!...TOO BAD IT ISN'T HITTING THE GROUND.        MISSMARISA

                from her post of 12-19-09—about virga. For us, it was a classic virga storm as well.

People from Accuweather Forums with Most Quotes

These are the final standings for most quotes making my weekly top 100. The first quote from the forums made my top 100 in January 2009, and the most recent quote made it in July of this year. Several quotes from the old forums are still on my top 100. Here is everybody who made my top 100 at least five times. A few people had fewer than five charted quotes but still made the top 10 once or twice. The person with the most charted quotes, surprisingly, never made the top 10.  A few people have ad

Accuweather Forums Quotes from 2018

The year 2018 opened with a frigid air mass in place in early January. We opened the year with a daily record low temperature—and haven’t had a record low since. There was an abrupt shift to balmy conditions on the 12,th, before temperatures crashed again as heavy rain turned to snow.  February had a late-month warm spell, reaching the 70s—and even the low-80s—in parts of the Northeast and MidAtlantic on Feb. 21. March opened with a nor’easter, and a major snowstorm struck the East Coast on the

Accuweather Forum Quotes from 2017--Part 2

The second half of 2017 was known for a sodden July, followed by a refreshingly cool late summer that gave us three daily record low temperatures. Late August saw Hurricane Harvey, followed By Ira two weeks later.  On Sept. 25, we had our warmest day of the year—the only time we’ve had our highest temperature of the year after the autumnal equinox. December featured a few snowstorms and a huge Arctic blast as the year ended.   Revised 10-6-18   30.          I ABSOLUTELY HATE

Accuweather Forum Quotes from 2017--Part 1

I was online all year, so I was able to get a lot of quotes from the forums. It was a good thing because it was the last full year for these forums. There were so many quotes from 2017 that I had to split them into two posts—here is Part 1, January-June. The highlight of this period was Storm Stella, which gave us nearly three feet of snow!~ This was followed by a very rainy spring and early summer.  Enjoy!   Revised version, 10-6-18 1.             THE EURO IS THE NEW YORK YANKEES

Accuweather Forum Quotes from 2016

Unfortunately, my Internet was down for most of 2016, explaining the paucity of quotes from this year. Fortunately, the Internet was up and running by November, and quote activity picked up by late in the year.          1.             LIKE PLAYING A CHESS GAME THE HUMAN MIND CAN ONLY LOOK AHEAD A FEW MOVES, WHILE THE COMPUTER CAN, IN AN UNBIASED WAY, LOOK            ANOTHER 10 MOVES AHEAD OF US                                                                   Supertyphoon, 1-3-

Accuweather Forum Quotes from 2015

This year got off to a fast start for quotes, with the prospect for a big storm in late January. Unfortunately, my home Internet service was snafued for 20 months beginning in mid-February (after my vacation), which meant that I was able to collect few quotes from the forums during that period.  1.             IT’S SO TYPICAL THAT ITS GOING TO GO UP TO 50F SUNDAY AND WE ARE HAVING A SLOPPY/SNEETY-SNAINY SLUSHFEST, AND THEN AFTER THE STORM PASSES IT’S GOING TO GO QUITE BALTIC OUT OVE

Accuweather Forum Quotes from 2012

1.             IF I HAD 1 WISH, I'D WISH FOR MORE WISHES. AND TONS OF SNOW                                                                    Seen on profile of Westlafayette62 in January 2012 The year 2012 saw many more quotes than 2011 did. The year began with many of us frustrated because of the lack of snow. This was followed by our warmest March ever in the Northeast (or at least since 1910), a hot, sultry summer, then a derecho on July 26. The highlight of the year was Supe

Accuweather.com Forum Quotes from 2011

2011         1.             UNDER IDEAL CONDITIONS, WITH CLEAR SKIES AND A 1038 MB HIGH OVER THE ST. LAWRENCE BY SUNDAY NIGHT, THIS WOULD TRANSLATE TO LOWS OF -20 TO -30 DEGREES FOR ALL OF OUR AREA BY MONDAY MORNING.
