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 added to their totals since WXDisco opened. I will have an updated version of this list in a couple of months.   NYCSUBURBS    22 UNDERTAKERSON  19 MAINE JAY 12 JDRENKEN 11 CLICHEVORTEX2014  7 RTCEMC   7 DAVE12308 6 MDBLUE RIDGE 6 MILLER A 6 KSPRING1 5 POCONO SNOW 5 RISINGRIVER 5 SNOWSUX 5 TELEJUNKIE 5   Coming soon:  Forum Members with Highest-charting Quotes

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 21st. April was the coldest since 1975 in our area—I was surprised we even reached 70 that month—on the 13th, one of the few nice days all month. April 30 was unseasonably chilly, but as soon as May came, so did the 80s 9and 90s in places). May was warm and sultry, but June was generally pleasant. July opened hot, and a wet pattern developed at midmonth. We have had close to two feet of rain since then. Parts of Pennsylvania had one deluge after another.   1.             LOWEST WINDCHILL SO FAR TODAY... NOT GONNA LIE, KINDA WANT IT TO BREAK -100F MARK.                                           Solstice, from his post of 1-6-18   2.             WHILE BIG STORMS ARE OVERALL FASCINATING TO WATCH FORM THE OVERRUNNING EVENTS AND CLIPPERS ALWAYS BRING BIG SURPRISES.                                       So What’s Happening, 1-12-18   3.             SO INSTEAD OF A LARGE STORM WITH SHARP CUTOFF, WE HAVE A SMALL STORM WITH SHARP CUTOFF. THIS ONE IS FOR THE AGES. A FETCH FROM TEXAS TO NY, AND A SMALL BOWLING ALLEY WINDOW.                                       RTCEMC, 1-16-18    4.             A MODEL HUG A DAY KEEPS THE FUN AWAY                                  Solstice, 1-28-18   5.             SO IS THIS THE THURSDAY NIGHT/FRIDAY MORNING EVENT THAT SETS UP THE SATURDAY NIGHT EVENT LEADING INTO THE SUNDAY NIGHT EVENT PRECEDING THE MONDAY AFTERNOON INTO TUESDAY EVENT WHICH ALL CULMINATES INTO THE WEDNESDAY NIGHT- THURSDAY AFTERNOON EXTRAVAGANZA?                                      Planet Master, 1-31-18—about a long parade of midwinter storms, most of them light to moderate   6.             I HAD 40 + FEET OF SNOW LAST YEAR IN MY AREA THAT AVERAGES ABOUT 32 INCHES, AND THIS YEAR SO FAR ABOUT 20 FEET IN THE LONG RANGE. THE ONLY THING WORSE THAN THE GOOFUS IN THE SHORT RANGE, IS THE GOOFUS IN THE LONG RANGE                                                          RTCEMC, 1-31-18   7.             YOU KNOW YOU’RE A WEATHER WEENIE IF....YOU LOOK AT CAR THERMOMETER MORE THAN THE SPEEDOMETER.      Telejunkie, of 2-7-18   8.             MAN, BEING JUST ON THE RAIN SIDE OF THE RAIN SNOW LINE FOR JUST ABOUT EVERY SYSTEM THIS WINTER HAS BEEN PURE TORTURE...

I LIVE IN THAT LITTLE AREA NOT COVERED BY THE DELAWARE WATERSHED. I NOTICE THE TEMPS FOR THAT AREA ARE A BIT LESS THAN THE SURROUNDING AREAS. I HYPOTHESIZE THAT IT IS BECAUSE WE ARE SLIGHTLY TILTED AWAY FROM THE SUN. THERE ARE ONLY ABOUT  30 SOMETHING RIVERS IN THE WORLD THAT FLOW THIS WAY, INCLUDING THE NILE. I'VE ALWAYS FELT THAT IS WHY IT IS ALWAYS MUCH COLDER BY ME THAN SURROUNDING AREAS.  COLD AIR REALLY DOES DAM UP HERE, ESPECIALLY SINCE I AM IN THE "VALLEY' BETWEEN HIGH POINT AND MTN CREEK.                                                                 MillerA, 2-20-18   11.          JUST HAD A MAJOR WIND GUST, IF POWER GOES OUT I HAVE THE ESSENTIALS, WOOD AND 4 BEERS ON TAP.

WITH SUCH QUANTUM-SIZED GRAINS, IT WAS LIKE BLACKHOLE EVAPORATION AND THE SNOW THAT FELL WASN’T QUICK ENOUGH TO PILE UP AND THE MARCH SUN MELTED IT AND NOW WE HAVE LIKE 2" ON THE GROUND. THE DENDRITES ARE SO SMALL IT LOOKS LIKE MIST OUT. BLOODY ALL DAY IT’S BEEN LIKE THAT!                   Crimson Sprite, 3-13-18—about quantum snow/antimatter   14.          COLD, RAW WEATHER IS FINE FOR FOOTBALL, I BARELY NOTICE IT. BUT MOST FIND IT INTOLERABLE SITTING IN GRAUPEL FOR NINE INNINGS OF BASEBALL.                                    MotownWX, 3-13-18   15.          MY WHOLE BODY JUST RELAXED READING THIS!! 80 ... 80 80 80 80 80 ...DEGREES AND WIND. NOW THAT I WILL TAKE!! .... NOT COLD!!                                                                                  KSpring1, 3-19-18   16.          HOW OFTEN DOES A TROUGH LAST MORE THAN A WEEK IN THE WESTERN US/CANADA? CAN'T BE OFTEN, BECAUSE IF IT DID, CALIFORNIA WOULD LOOK A WHOLE LOT GREENER VS. THE DESERT IT IS SLOWLY BECOMING.                Alczervik, 3-28-18   17.          I WANT NO PRECIPITATION OF ANY KIND FOR THE NEXT TWO MONTHS, PREFERABLY WITH VERY WARM TEMPS (AS LONG AS I HAVE THE TEE BOX), SINCE MY CURRENT WATER TABLE IS CURRENTLY ABOUT 3 FEET ABOVE THE TOP OF MY FOUNDATION                                                          RTCEMC, 4-12-18   18.          LIGHTNING STRIKES AND DROUGHT DON'T GO WELL TOGETHER, AND HEAVY PRECIP DOESN'T ALLOW THE SOIL TO SOAK IT UP VERY WELL.                                                          ClicheVortex2014, 4-16-18   19.          I LOVE THIS TIME OF YEAR WHEN THE AMERICAN TOAD COMES OUT AND SINGS IT SONG ALL NIGHT AND DAY FOR ABOUT 2-3 DAYS STRAIGHT. THEN I GET THEIR CHORUS FOR ABOUT A WEEK AT EVENING AND NIGHT TIMES. TALK ABOUT SINGING A LULLABY TO GO TO SLEEP TO    Crimson Sprite, 5-3-18   20.          ALL THE BLACK FLIES WOKE UP THIS MORNING  , THE HONEYMOON IS OVER...                                                    Maine Jay, 5-3-18   21.          THE TEMPERATURE CONTRAST BETWEEN DETROIT (COLD, RAINY 40S) AND, SAY, COLUMBUS (NEAR 80 AND PARTLY CLOUDY) IS AMAZING - AND A BIT DEPRESSING - TO SEE. PURE MICHIGAN.                                                                                  MotownWX, 5-12-18   22.          80s IS DEFINITELY THE BEST. 70s IS TOO COLD, AND EVERYONE WANTS TO GO TO THE WATER PARK WHEN IT'S 90+ DEGREES AND END UP WITH HEAT EXHAUSTION.       ClicheVortex2014, 5-16-18   23.          SPRING = DENSE ALL DAY FOG SEASON; SUMMER = MORNING FOG SEASON; FALL= MODERATE ALL DAY FOG SEASON; WINTER= FREEZING FOG SEASON. DID I MISS ANY?                                                                                              MDBlueRidge, 5-18-18   24.          SO I'M ON A WALK WITH THE DOG, ON THE WAY HOME. THIS STONE WALL LINES THE GRASSY LEFT BORDER, AND THERE ARE A FEW LEFT OPEN "SLUICES" IN THE WALL FOR CROSSING / ACCESSIBILITY, I PRESUME. ON THE OTHER SIDE OF THE WALL IS DENSE FOREST, COMPLETE WITH LARGE RED OAKS AND TULIP TREES. WHILE WALKING, I THOUGHT I SAW SOMETHING MOVE. I STOP IN MY TRACKS FOR A SECOND, AND WAIT. SURE ENOUGH, A  RED FOX EMERGES OUT FROM THE BRUSH, SEES ME, AND BOLTS ACROSS THE ROAD INTO THE NEIGHBORING FIELD.    Solstice, 5-26-18   25.          DESALINATION PLANTS. OCEAN NEVER GONNA RUN OUT WATER ANYTIME SOON. EXPENSIVE TO GET GOING YES, BUT NEVER HAVING TO WORRY ABOUT RUNNING OUT OF WATER FOR FAST RAPIDLY GROWING CITIES COULD MORE THAN MAKE UP FOR IT AS IT WOULD BE CHEAPER IN THE LONGER TERM. THEY COULD ALSO USE THOSE SAME PLANTS FOR WAVE POWER PLANTS ESPECIALLY FOR COASTAL CITIES AS THE PACIFIC YIELDS SOME PRETTY STRONG WAVES WHICH COULD ALSO BRING NEARLY LIMITLESS POWER TO THE REGION IN ADDITION TO SOLAR PLANTS.                                                                  IL Stormwatcher, 5-31-18   26.          I HAVEN'T HEARD GEE WHIZ SINCE THE DAYS I USED TO WATCH LEAVE IT TO BEAVER ON THE BLACK AND WHITE, 3 CHANNEL (IF THE RABBIT EARS WERE WORKING AND IT WASN'T STORMY WEATHER), NO REMOTE, CONSOLE TV WE HAD (WE GOT THE OPTIONAL HI FI SYSTEM WITH OURS - IT EVEN HAD FM RADIO ON THE DIAL AND A REALLY COOL TONE ARM). IT WAS A STEP UP FROM THE OLD DUMONT WITH THAT RIDICULOUS 14" SCREEN THOUGH.                              Undertakerson, 6-6-18   27.          AN EXPERT KNOWS FEW WAYS AND MUST FOLLOW THEM; A NOVICE IS OPEN TO EVERYTHING                                                     Idecline, 6-19-18   28.          I NEVER HEARD IT. I WAS UP WATCHING THE METS GAME (SHHH! DON’T TELL ANYONE) SO I WOULD THINK I WOULD HAVE HEARD SOMETHING. I THOUGHT I HEARD THE WIND AROUND THAT TIME, BUT IT MAY HAVE JUST BEEN THE METS BLOWING.                                                                                       MillerA, 6-19-18—about an apparently quiet thunderstorm. As a Met fan, I enjoyed this quote and could relate.   29.          I CANCELLED A PERFECTLY GOOD MORNING TO DO A FRENCH DRAIN JOB THINKING THE GROUND WOULD BE TOO WET (DIDN'T WANT TO CREATE RUTS OR KILL TO MUCH GRASS WITH MY MACHINE)-  I GUESS I'LL GRAB A CUP OF COFFEE AND GO OUTSIDE TO WATER MY GARDEN, PLANTS DON'T LOOK TOO HAPPY… ENDED UP “TAKING A CHANCE” AND DOING THE FRENCH DRAIN JOB, WE WERE DONE BY 2PM, IT WAS AMAZING TO SEE THE DIRT DRY 15” DOWN, JUST POWDERY. STILL HAVEN’T HAD A DROP OF RAIN YET, I HAVE A FAMILY BBQ TOMORROW ACROSS THE COUNTY, SO IT WILL DEF RAIN TOMORROW, PROB START WHEN WE GET THE GRILLS GOING.                                                                                       KennyP2339, 6-23-18   30.          DON’T WANT THE HOT TIRES COMBINING WITH THE NEW SEAL ONLY TO HAVE IT POSSIBLY PEEL.                                           MillerA,  7-2-18   31.          WINTER STORM THREADS MAKE THE WORLD GO ROUND        PoconoSnow, 7-17-18   32.          AS ONE SEASON PASSES TO THE NEXT, AS POSTS OF HEAT WAVES AND SEVERE STORM BLEND WITH THOSE OF TROPICAL SYSTEMS, TURNING TO THE FOLIAGE THREADS, TO THE BELOVED (BY MOST) COLD AND SNOW SEASON, AND BACK AGAIN TO WHEN HOPE SPRINGS ETERNAL AS OLD MAN WINTER RELEASES HIS ICY GRIP. EACH, PASSES TO THE OTHER - THE INEVITABLE, IF NOT INVARIABLE, CYCLE CONTINUES.                                          Undertakerson, 7-17-18—about the upcoming end of the Accuweather Forums

33.          THE TRAINING ON THIS RAIN TONIGHT IS VERY CONCERNING. ALREADY HAD PLENTIFUL URBAN FLOODING EARLIER. STREAMS, CREEKS, RIVERS SWELLING .THIS COULD EASILY BE 2" (+??) IN A 1-2 HOUR PERIOD.                                                                                           JDClapper, 7-23-18   34.          I ALSO MADE SOME HUMMINGBIRD NECTAR AND HUNG A FEEDER, USUALLY THE MIMOSA TREE NEAR ME HAS A TON OF THEM. THIS YEAR SEEMS TO BE ALL BEES AND PREDATORY BIRDS TRYING TO EAT THEM. I WANT MY HUMMING BIRDS BACK DANGGIT . ALTHOUGH SEEING TON OF BEES IS A GOOD TO EVEN GREAT THING.                         Pocono Snow, 7-26-18   35.          IT'S FUNNY IN BETWEEN THE HARD RAINS THE HUMMINGBIRDS ARE WHIPPING IN TO GULP DOWN WHATEVER THEY CAN. I'M GUESSING THEY GO BACK INTO THE TREES AND PUT ON THEIR RAIN COATS TILL IT'S OVER AGAIN.                                                                         PoconoSnow, 8-3-18     I am sure that there were many good quotes that I missed through the years—if you had a memorable quote that I missed (along with the approximate date), drop me a line, and I will insert it.   All quotes that made my top 100 after early August have been from the WXDisco. I’ll include them all in a post in late December or early January. If you have an original quote you want on that or a later blog post, send me a note.

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 SUMMER - I HATE EVERYTHING ABOUT IT. SUNSHINE, EARLY SUNRISES/LATE SUNSETS, HEAT, AND HUMIDITY. I COULD DO WITHOUT ALL OF IT. STORMS ARE THE ONLY PLUS AND WE HAVEN'T GOTTEN MUCH OF THOSE THIS YEAR EITHER. EXCITED THAT AVERAGE TEMPS WILL BEGIN GOING DOWN HERE VERY SOON! FALL/WINTER, HERE WE COME!                                                ValpoSnow, 7-15-17—I am not a big fan of summer weather either.     31.          ONE OF MY PET PEEVES IS WEATHERFOLKS SAYING "IT SHOULD BE 82 DEGREES THIS TIME OF YEAR.", AS IF IT'S A FINITE TEMPERATURE FOR THAT PARTICULAR DATE OF THE YEAR, AND ANY DEVIATION FROM THAT IS "NOT NORMAL". C'MON FOLKS. I'D THINK IT BE MORE ACCURATE TO SAY SOMETHING LIKE, "IT IS MOST OFTEN BETWEEN 78-86 FOR A HIGH TEMPERATURE SO TODAY WAS COOLER/WARMER THAN IT TYPICALLY IS THIS TIME OF YEAR." I GUESS THAT'S WAY TOO LONG OF A THING TO SAY ON LIVE TV.                                                                   JDClapper, 7-19-17     32.          IT IS BRUTAL OUT THERE; CAN'T EVEN HIT BALLS. OF COURSE, HERE IN THE NEW T-STORM CAPITAL OF THE PLANET, I'M SURE ONE OF THESE SMALL RENEGADE STORMS WILL BLOW UP AND WHACK US AND PREVENT THE GRASS MOWING FROM BEING COMPLETED AGAIN.             Rtcemc, circa 7-20-17     33.          WORKLOAD SCHMORKLOAD, IT'S A HOBBY. I ENJOY THE INTERACTION. THE METHOD IS RECURRING ATMOSPHERIC STATES, IT CERTAINLY ISN'T MINE, IT IS SOMETHING THAT OCCURS AND IT TRACEABLE.                          OSNW3, 8-8-17     34.          JUST CHECKING THE RADARS AND SATELLITES OVER PAST 45 MINUTES AND IT SEEMS THAT IT HASN'T MOVED, MAYBE A MILE OR TWO? THE EYE IS STILL KINDA OVER WATER, AT LEAST PORTIONS OF IT, MEANING WEAKENING WILL BE SLOW. IF THIS STAYS IN THIS GENERAL AREA FOR AN EXTENDED PERIOD THE COASTLINE WILL BE TOTALLY REARRANGED, BARRIER ISLANDS WIPED AWAY AND NEW ONES CREATED. THIS STORM WILL CHANGE THE GEOGRAPHY OF THE TEXAS COAST                                                       Planet Master, 8-25-17—about Hurricane Harvey     35.          DOESN'T SURPRISE ME, THE MEDIA MUST BE DYING NOT PERPETUATING THEIR AGENDA OF HATE, RACISM, POLITICAL MADNESS AND HOW CELEBRITIES ARE OH SO IMPORTANT. AMERICANS IN NEED ARE JUST MERE DISTRACTIONS AND UNIMPORTANT COMPARED TO OPRAH WINFREY OR THE HUMAN TRASH KARDASHIANS...SUCH A SAD STATE OF AFFAIRS IN THIS COUNTRY THAT IT TAKES DISASTERS LIKE THIS FOR PEOPLE TO GET TOGETHER. BUT THANKFULLY THERE ARE REAL PEOPLE OUT THERE WHO DO CARE AND DO MAKE A DIFFERENCE, I RECOGNIZE AND SALUTE THEM EVEN IF THE MEDIA DOESN'T.                                   Planet Master, 8-28-17—about the media’s fixation on sensationalism     36.          BECAUSE EVERYONE CAN'T EVACUATE, THERE IS NOWHERE TO GO. TAKE A PLACE LIKE LONG ISLAND – YOU CAN'T EVACUATE IT, SAME WITH FLORIDA - THERE IS NO WHERE FOR EVERYONE TO GO. THE PROBLEM IS THAT MANY PEOPLE WHO SHOULD SHELTER IN PLACE, WANT TO EVACUATE, AND THAT INHIBITS THE ABILITY (ROADS, HOTELS) TO EVACUATE THE PLACES THAT SHOULD EVACUATE. THE WHOLE THING IS A MESS.                                       Longislander, 9-3-17     37.          WE’RE DISCUSSING MODEL RUNS AT THE EXTREME OF THEIR RANGE TILL WHAT IN WINTER TIME WE WOULD DEFINITELY BE CALLING THE EDGES OF FANTASYLAND. VEGAS WOULDN'T GIVE YOU ODDS IF YOU WANTED TO BET THAT THE HURRICANE WOULD ACTUALLY COME ONSHORE IN THE SHOWN LOCATION AT THE SHOWN STRENGTH. WE KNOW IT'S NOT GOING TO PLAY OUT VERBATIM OFF OF ANY OF THE CURRENT MODEL RUNS, GLOBAL OR HURRICANE.                                                              Risingriver, 9-3-17     38.          THIS THING IS GOING TO FLIRT JUST ENOUGH WITH THE EAST COAST OF FLORIDA TO CAUSE ANOTHER ROUND OF GAS, GROCERY AND HOME DEPOT HYSTERIA I’M AFRAID.    Todd305, 9-3-17—about Hurricane Irma)     39.          THE GFS ENSEMBLES JUST HATES SOUTH FL TODAY O O SO ON THE 12Z WE GET SLAPPED IN THE FACE BY IRMA, AND 8 DAYS LATER IT HAS SEVERAL MEMBERS SHOWING JOSE LOOP BACK AROUND AND KICK US IN THE KEYSTER...AND NOW THE 18Z SHOWS FUTURE MARIA BEARING DOWN ON US AS A 954MB HURRICANE. IT'S IN THE BOONIES BUT WE NEED A BREAK GFS, SERIOUSLY O O                                                                                      Ron in Miami, 9-6-17     40.          THE AMOUNT OF MISINFORMATION AND OVER-THE-TOP HYPE BEING BROADCASTED, AND SUBSEQUENTLY SPREAD VIA WORD OF MOUTH, IS A DISSERVICE TO EVERYONE. IT REMINDS ME OF THE HYSTERIA OF LIVING IN THE MID ATLANTIC WHEN A "BLIZZARD" WAS SURE TO END ALL EXISTENCE.                                                                             SaintCabbage, 9-6-17     41.          DID I PAGE TOP? BOOM! KNOCK KNOCK WHO'S THERE? HURRICANE. HURRICANE WHO? HURRY! CANE YOU RUN AWAY FROM THE STORM?                                                                          PhillyPete, 9-9-17     42.          WHO ARE YOU? AND WHAT HAVE YOU DONE WITH OUR BLUE RIDGE BOUNCER? /YOU SHUT YOUR MOUTH WHEN YOU'RE TALKING TO ME. / THAT MAKES TALKING RATHER DIFFICULT. JUST SAYIN'                                                                               Risingriver and MDBlueRidge and TC1,from their posts of  9-9-17—a fun example of forum banter      43.          NO NINO OR NINA IS THE SAME. THERE ARE OTHER FACTORS...SIBERIAN SNOW COVER IN OCTOBER HAS A CORRELATION, LOW SOLAR ACTIVITY VERSUS ACTIVE SUN, ETC. ANALOG YEARS MIGHT HELP PIN DOWN A TENDENCY, BUT GIVEN THE LACK OF POWERFUL ENSO ON EITHER SIDE I DON'T THINK AN OVERWHELMING PATTERN E.G. WEST TROUGH/EAST RIDGE IS A GIVEN.               KPK33X, 10-10-17     44.          HERE WE GO. ALMOST TIME. PAGE TOPPER. BOOM!  HOW DO YOU FEEL WHEN THERE'S NO COFFEE?  DEPRESSO. MDBlueRidge, 10-22-17     45.          WITH POTENT UPPER LEVEL WINDS, TRANSLATING TO THE SURFACE DURING DOWNDRAFTING WITH HEAVY PRECIP RATES, THAT ALONE COULD BE PROBLEMATIC. WHEN ONE FACTORS IN THE ASPECT OF THE VENTURI EFFECT (AIR OR LIQUID, VOLUME - GETS FUNNELED INTO AN AREA OF DECREASED SPACE = INCREASE IN SPEED) THE WINDS ON THE BACKSIDE (AFTER SERIOUS SOAKING) AT GUSTS OF UP TO 50 MPH IS DOUBLE TROUBLE.                         Undertakerson, 10-28-17   46.          SAUSAGE GRAVY IS A SUPERIOR BREAKFAST FOOD. SO SUPERIOR, I OFTEN EAT IT FOR LUNCH AND DINNER. IT IS THE KING OF BIG MAN BREAKFAST DELICACIES. SPLITTING WOOD? BUILDING A CHIMNEY? DON'T DARE DO IT WITHOUT A HEALTHY HELPING OF SAUSAGE GRAVY.   MDBlueRidge, 11-14-17   47.             THE WAY MAINE IS LOCATED GEOGRAPHICALLY, OCEAN ON ONE SIDE, CANADA ON THE OTHER, IT REALLY ALLOWS THE WEATHER TO DIFFER QUITE A BIT SOMETIMES FROM FOLKS NOT FAR SOUTH. PLUS, THE GULF OF MAINE CAN REALLY SEED STORMS.                                  Maine Jay, 11-18-17   48.          THE GREAT NAMBINO STEPS UP TO THE PLATE DOWN 3, BASES LOADED...                                                                                         PoconoSnow, 11-21-17—referring to the NAM computer weather model   49.          THAT'S WHY THE TERM VOODOO METEOROLOGY IS MAKING ITS ROUNDS ON TWITTER. SOMEONE CAN CLAIM ALL THEY WANT THAT THEIR SPECIAL INDEX SUPPORTS COLD AND THE MODELS ARE COMING AROUND TO THEIR THINKING, BUT IF YOU ARE UNWILLING TO PUBLISH IN A PEER REVIEW OR SHARE HOW YOU COME UP WITH IT THAT MEANS SQUAT.                                                                                    JDRenken, 11-26-17 50.          EVERY VOLCANO IS UNIQUE, AND EACH ERUPTION IS ALSO UNIQUE. BUT ONLY CERTAIN VOLCANOES ARE CAPABLE OF CHANGING THE WEATHER, AND THIS IS ONE OF THEM. IT'S ALREADY ERUPTING, IT'S REALLY A MATTER OF HOW MUCH AEROSOL IS ABLE TO MAKE IT INTO THE STRATOSPHERE. WHERE THIS IS OCCURRING DURING THE RAINY SEASON, WATER INTERACTING WITH MAGMA INCREASES THE EXPLOSIVE ABILITY. AND THERE IS LITTLE WAY OF KNOWING HOW LONG THE ERUPTION WILL LAST. COULD BE A LONG SHOW BURN, BUT I THINK AGUNG IS KNOW FOR BIG ONES. LAST WAS A VEI 5.   Maine Jay, 11-27-17   51.          ENJOY THE CLIPPERS WE GET AND THE RARE APPALACHIAN RUNNERS... BUT YOU AREN'T GOING TO ESCAPE THE MID-WINTER WASHOUTS.                                               ClicheVortex2014,12-5-17 52.          THE HEISENBERG UNCERTAINTY PRINCIPLE SAYS, THE MORE PRECISE YOU KNOW A PARTICLE'S POSITION, THE LESS YOU KNOW ABOUT ITS MOMENTUM. I THINK ABOUT THIS WITH VORTS.                                                                          Maine Jay, 12-10-17    53.      FAMOUS SNOW DOME STRIKES AGAIN. BEEN DOMING             OVER ME FOR AT LEAST HALF HOUR                                                              Crimson Sprite, 12-12-17   54.          I LOVE HEARING SLEET HIT THE WINDOWS. IT'S SUCH A WINTERY SOUND! SLEET DOESN'T PULL DOWN POWER LINES AND ISN'T AS DIFFICULT TO DRIVE ON AS FREEZING RAIN.                                                                                        J Wassmer, 12-12-17   55.          I HAVE A STRANGE RELATIONSHIP WITH ICE. I FIND IT FASCINATING (SLEET NOT SO MUCH) AND IT CAN BE BEAUTIFUL. WHEN IT COMES TO DRIVING AND POTENTIAL POWER OUTAGES...NOT SO MUCH.                               RobB, 12-12-17   56.          WAS JUST READING THE DEFINITION OF THE WORD THERMOCLINE AND THINK I'M MISUSING IT HERE AS MY 'NEW' UNDERSTANDING IS THAT THERMOCLINE WOULD REFER TO DEPTH IN THE ATMOSPHERE AND NOT SPATIAL AS I'M USING IT. SO BAROCLINIC ZONE I THINK IS A MORE APT TERM HERE.                                                       Telejunkie, 12-14-17   57.          NOT A SHOCK. NOT MATTER WHAT POLITICAL OR IDEOLOGICAL SPECTRUM THE MEDIA LEANS, THEY ARE ALWAYS WANTING TO REPORT THE 'BIG' STORY FOR VIEWERSHIP.

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 OF WEATHER MODELS. YEAH, IT WAS THE BEST ONCE, IT STILL DRAWS LOTS OF ATTENTION, THE AVERAGE FAN STILL PUTS IT ON TOP, BUT WHEN IT COMES TO CRUNCH TIME, DOESN'T ALWAYS COME OUT ON TOP.                                                                    Hack5, from his post of 1-2-17 2.             IN WEATHER THERE ARE NO ABSOLUTES                                        JDRenken, 1-2-17 3.             MY REGION IS RIGHT AT THE TAIL END OF THE AREA AFFECTED BY CLOUD COVER FROM LAKE ERIE THROUGHOUT THE WINTER MONTHS. WE DON'T GET VERY MUCH LAKE EFFECT SNOW HERE, BUT WE'RE OFTEN SOCKED IN UNDER A SLATE GRAY SKY FOR WEEKS ON END. THE LACK OF SUNSHINE IS PROBABLY THE BIGGEST REASON AS TO WHY I HATE WINTER AS MUCH AS I DO.                                                                                          Snowsux, 1-3-17 4.             AH, THE OLD MOON THROUGH THE CLOUDS TRICK, THAT ALWAYS MEANS SUPER LIGHT SNOW ENDING VERY SOON TO ME                                                                                                      Tool483, 1-5-17 5.             CAN'T WAIT FOR DER BINGLE'S BACKPEDALING ON THE FREEZING RAIN ADVISORY... DO THEY EVEN LOOK AT RADAR???                                                                                        Harleigh Hal, 1-17-17 6.             AN ANALOG IS AN ANALOG. IT TRIES TO COMPARE AS MUCH AS IT CAN, BUT THE ANALOG DOESN'T LOOK AT IT FROM A PHYSICS POINT OF VIEW TO SAY "IS THE MOISTURE THERE? IS THE COLD AIR THERE?, ETC." TRUE... IF THE PATTERNS WERE IDENTICAL NATURE SHOULD FOLLOW THROUGH, BUT IN THIS CASE THE PATTERN IS BEING DRIVEN BY DIFFERENT THINGS THAN THE ANALOGS WERE                                                                                     Supertyphoon, 1-19-17 7.             SO HAPPY WE'VE CONCLUDED SOMEONE BETWEEN WESTERN PA AND MAINE WILL GET A GOOD AMOUNT OF SNOW OR SLEET AT SOME TIME BETWEEN TOMORROW AND TUESDAY. MODELS TREAT US LIKE KINGS. CAN'T LIVE WITH EM OR WITHOUT EM.                                                           HV Snowstorm, 1-22-17 8.             THIS FORUM IS FOR THOSE WHO WANT TO LEARN AND UNDERSTAND THE WITCHCRAFT OF WEATHER. HOPEFULLY, WE'RE SHOWING SOME, IF NOT MANY, THE BEST WAY TO SURVIVE IS TO DETACH YOUR EMOTIONS FROM THE FORECAST AND TRY TO REDUCE YOUR BIASES, WHICH AS YOU SAID, WE ALL HAVE. AND WE NEED TO HAVE SOME FUN WHILE DOING IT, SO HENCE THE BANTER.    Supertyphoon, 1-30-17 9.             FOR A STRONG NINA TO FORM, YOU NEED EXTREMELY STRONG TRADE WINDS. (AS A REFRESHER, NINAS FORM WHEN STRONG TRADE WINDS (EASTERLY WINDS) ARE PRESENT; THE WINDS ACT TO TRANSPORT WATER FROM THE PERUVIAN COAST, WHERE WATER IS QUITE COOL, OUT TO THE PACIFIC WHERE THE WATER IS MUCH WARMER ON AVERAGE)                                                              Clichevortex2014 From his post of 2-8-17 10.          HAVE I EVER MENTIONED THAT I LOVE 33F RAIN EVENTS?  YEAH, I DON'T REMEMBER DOING THAT EITHER.  -/ RAIN --32.2F ON THE INSTRUMENTS. (GOES BACK TO WATCHING GOLF MATCH FROM PEBBLE AND WISHING HE WAS THERE)                                                                                               Undertakerson, 2-12-17 11.          RE: OROVILLE -- I HOPE THAT SPILLWAY HOLDS FOR THEM. IT'S AMAZING THAT 50 YEARS AGO THEY THOUGHT AHEAD TO CREATE A BACK-UP SPILLWAY FOR THE ORIGINAL SPILLWAY (APPARENTLY NEVER USED BEFORE!) I CAN'T IMAGINE THE FEELING OF WATCHING THE WHOLE DAM WITH A FORECAST OF 7 DAYS OF RAIN!!! DEFINITELY FAMINE TO FEAST -- HOPE IT HOLDS!                                                   KSpring1,  2-16-17 12.          IF IT WAS 30 ABOVE NORMAL IN JULY WE WOULD BE 115°. LOL  I BELIEVE THE HUMIDITY WE GET WITH HOT TEMPS IN SUMMER KEEPS THINGS COOLER PER SAY. IF IT WAS DRY AS A BONE I CAN SEE AT LEAST 107-110. BUT WE'RE NOT THE DESERT.- I WILL AGREE - WHICH IS WHY I DETEST THE DESERT ENVIRONS AFTER A FEW DAYS THERE./ I LIKE IT WELL ENOUGH, BUT THERE'S A POINT WHERE YOU CAN ALMOST LITERALLY FEEL THE MOISTURE BEING PULLED OUT OF YOUR SKIN, YOUR HAIR TURNS TO STRAW, AND "LAUGH LINES" SEEM TO DEEPEN.                            Noreaster07 and Undertakerson, 2-24-17 13.          IS THERE ANY RESOURCE THAT KEEPS TRACK OF THE NUMBER OF STORMS IN A WINTER SEASON BY THEIR TYPE: CLIPPER, GREAT LAKES CUTTER, MILLER B, OR MILLER A? THE LATTER SURE SEEMS THE RAREST OF LATE.                                                                                            Rising River, 3-1-17 14.          CUTTERS WILL BE CURSED. FISH STORMS WILL BE SHOWN. SOMEONE WILL ASK ABOUT EITHER THE BRAZILIAN OR CRAS. JB REFERENCES WILL HYPE SOMETHING BIG. SOMEONE WILL POST THE 84 HOUR NAM AND HUG IT. SOMEONE WILL ASK HOW MUCH IT WILL SNOW IN PHILLY. THE NEPA SNOW DROUGHT WILL BE MENTIONED.  THERE WILL BE MUCH ADO ABOUT THE SHAPE OF THE WEST COAST RIDGE. SOMEONE WILL PROTEST BEING IN THE JACKPOT ZONE TOO SOON.                                                               Rising River, 3-4-17 15.          WHAT IF THE TUESDAY SYSTEM WAS NEVER TO BE? AND INSTEAD, SUNDAY WAS ALWAYS MEANT TO BE, BUT IF SUNDAY WASN'T, THEN TUESDAY IS … OR BOTH WEREN'T WASN'T. PAGE TOPPER, BOOM.                                            JDClapper, 3-7-17 16.          BRRRRRRRRR!!!!! UGH - MAKES A "RELAXING WALK" NOT VERY RELAXING!! THAT'S MY THEORY ABOUT WHEN DOES WINTER END AND SPRING BEGIN?... MY THEORY IS THAT SPRING IS HERE WHEN IT NO LONGER FEELS LIKE I'M BEING ASSAULTED WHEN I GO OUTSIDE! WHEN BEING OUTSIDE IT ACTUALLY RELAXING - AS OPPOSED TO HAVING ONE'S WHOLE BODY CLENCH AND TENSE UP AGAINST THE COLD! THE AIR THAT BURNS THE LUNGS AND DRIES THE NASAL PASSAGES. THAT CAUSES THE SKIN TO BECOME RAW AND RED AND IRRITATED.... COMPARE THAT TO 70 DEGREES WITH COMFORTABLE HUMIDITY LEVELS - SKIN SUPPLE, LIPS NOT CHAPPED, BREATHING EASY, BODY = TOTALLY RELAXED!!!!!               KSpring1, 3-13-17     17.          A DISASTER HERE!!  JUST SWERVED TO MISS GETTING T-BONED.  5 MINS LATER I GET REAR ENDED AT MARKET BY OLD LADY. LINES AT ALL GAS STATIONS.  LIQUOR STORE WAS SLAMMED. PURE AND UTTER PANDEMONIUM!     Poconosnow, 3-13-17—an example of how people get worked up by the hype machine (a.k.a. the  news/weather media) 18.          I MIGHT POUR MYSELF A BOURBON AND THEN STAND OUTSIDE TO GET A LIL SLEET. NORMALLY I PREFER A BIG ICE CUBE, BUT IF THIS IS GOING TO BE A PING STORM, WHY NOT?                                                                                         PSU1313, 3-13-17 19.          SH WE COULD HAVE A STORM WHERE EVERYONE IS HAPPY...BUT THAT RARELY HAPPENS. THERE WILL BE WINNERS AND LOSERS, THAT IS THE NATURE OF THE METEOROLOGICAL BEAST. REGARDLESS IT WAS A STORM FOR THE AGES AND FASCINATING TO WATCH UNFOLD              Coalkickin , 3-14-17     20.          THE STATE OF KNOWLEDGE OF THE SCIENCE AND THE MATHEMATICAL TECHNIQUES WE USE TO SOLVE THE EQUATIONS IN THE MODEL PRECLUDE US FROM HAVING A SINGLE MODEL. THERE ARE EFFORTS TO DO SO, BUT PERSONALLY, I DON'T THINK WE WILL CRACK THIS NUT IN OUR LIFETIMES UNLESS WE HAVE AN EINSTEIN-LIKE BREAKTHROUGH IN SOLVING SIMULTANEOUS MULTI- VARIATE PARTIAL DIFFERENTIAL EQUATIONS.                               Supertyphoon, 3-14-17 21.          DO I BEGIN TO TELL YOU ALL WHERE WE ENDED UP? THE CITY OF HAZLETON HAS BANNED ALL NON ESSENTIAL VEHICLES UNTIL AT LEAST 6 AM WEDNESDAY? 27 INCHES OF SNOWFALL WAS RECORDED IN THE AREA, WITH LOLLIPOP AMOUNTS UNVERIFIED AT ABOVE 30 INCHES? I TOOK MEASUREMENTS WITH A 4 FOOT DRYWALL SQUARE? IT TOOK ME 1 1/2 HOURS TO SNOW BLOW MY DRIVEWAY? MY HEAT TEMPORARILY WENT OUT, UNTIL I GOT THE VENT PIPE OPENED? WE GOT AN ADDITIONAL ACCUMULATION OF WRAPAROUND SNOW - 3 OR SO INCHES? THE WINDS ARE HOWLING AS I SPEAK, BLOWING MY DRIVEWAY BACK IN? I PROBABLY WON'T HAVE WORK UNTIL MONDAY, AS SCHOOLS MAY BE CLOSED UNTIL THEN? I EXPERIENCED BLUE SNOW? MY POOR SCHNAUZER WAS LOST WHEN HE WENT OUT TO DO THE DOO?                                                                     Harleigh Hal, 3-15-17 22.          HAS TO DO WITH REFRACTION I DO BELIEVE. (BLUE REFRACTING THROUGH A PRISM, THE EASIEST) YOU CAN SEE BLUE SNOW UNDER THE RIGHT CONDITIONS, NO MATTER HOW MUCH IS RECEIVED - FOR EXAMPLE, IF YOU SHOVEL A "TUNNEL" BENEATH THE SNOW CRUSTED SURFACE (NOT THAT YOU NEED TO EXCAVATE A CAVE, EVEN THE FIRST SCOOP OF SNOW WILL YIELD A BLUE SNOW)                                                                       Undertakerson, 3-15-17 23.             THE LONGER WE CAN HOLD OFF BUG SEASON, THE BETTER. I GUESS I DIDN'T LOOK FORWARD TO SPRING LIKE OTHERS, I JUST THINK TICKS, BLACK FLIES, MOSQUITOES, DEER FLIES, AND NO-SEE-EMS.                                                                 Maine Jay,  3-16-17   24.          I WATCHED IN AWE AND HORROR AS THE SKY WENT FROM GREY TO BLACK AND THEN DARK GREEN, ALL IN A VERY SHORT PERIOD OF TIME. I WATCHED THE UPDRAFTS SHOOT FURTHER THAN I'D EVER SEEN CLOUDS TRAVEL – AS LIGHTNING DANCED ACROSS THE PANORAMIC VIEW. THEN THE SUDDEN AND INTENSE HAIL STORM THAT I GOT CAUGHT IN, STILL COULDN'T MAKE ME SEEK MORE SHELTER (I WAS UNDER AN OVERHANG ON THE LONE BUILDING ATOP THAT HILL). I WATCHED THE DEBRIS START TO DANCE IN THE SKY AND THAT FINALLY MADE ME RUN FOR HOME, PELTED BY HAIL STONES THE WHOLE WAY. IT WAS ONE OF THE DEFINING MOMENTS FOR ME, THAT MADE ME ALWAYS STAY INTERESTED IN THE AWESOMENESS THAT CAN, SOMETIMES, BE OUR WEATHER.                                                             Undertakerson, 4-5-17 (about a tornado from 40 years before)
    25.          THEY HAVE REALLY STRUGGLED THE LAST WEEK WITH THE FORECASTS, EVEN INSIDE 24 HOURS. WEEKEND WAS A PERFECT EXAMPLE. SATURDAY WAS SUPPOSED TO BE NICE AND SUNDAY CHANCE OF SHOWERS. OPPOSITE HAPPENED. SAME FRIDAY. YESTERDAY WAS DRY ALL DAY UNTIL MUCH LATER THAN THOUGHT. THEN OVERNIGHT WAS NOWHERE NEAR THE AMOUNT EXPECTED. TODAY WAS A WASHOUT. IT WAS DRY ALL DAY UNTIL DRIZZLE JUST STARTED A FEW MINUTES AGO. NOW THEY SEEM TO BE CHANGING THURSDAY ALSO.              RTCEMC, 4-25-17 26.          LAKE MICHIGAN + -NAO = NE+NW WINDS= MARCH. FLIP IS COMING THOUGH. NOT JUST FORECASTED BUT TYPICALLY LATE MAY YOU JUMP FROM 40'S AND 50'S TO 70'S INITIALLY THAN TOO QUICKLY 80'S AND SUMMER. WE HAD A GOOD APRIL THOUGH AND MY LOCATION AWAY FROM LAKE GIVES ME MORE WARM DAYS THAN LAKESIDE. LAKE BREEZE WHEN IT DOES COME DOESN'T HIT TILL LATE AFTERNOON. UNLESS ALL SW WIND DOWNTOWN CHICAGO DURING SPRING NOT TOO NICE.            Cary67, 5-8-17 27.          WE AREN'T GONNA GET SQUAT ARE WE? YOU CAN DEFINITELY SEE IT SWINGIN TO THE SOUTH ON THE RADAR. BOOO!                                                                                        Melissa from Illinois, 5-27-17—about how severe thunderstorms kept missing her area 28.          ANOTHER JUNE, ANOTHER FLOODED OUT SOUTHWESTERN PA THANKS TO TORRENTS OF RAIN DAY AFTER DAY AFTER DAY AFTER DAY AFTER DAY AFTER DAY AFTER DAY AFTER DAY AFTER DAY AFTER DAY AFTER DAY AFTER DAY AFTER DAY AFTER DAY AFTER DAY AFTER DAY...REMEMBER NICE WEATHER? I KINDA DO.                             Snowsux, 6-18-17 29.          WOW... ZONAL FLOW MAKES PEOPLE GAG IN THE WINTER,  BUT IT CAN BE AMAZING IN THE SUMMER. LOOK AT ALL THOSE SHORTWAVE TROUGHS AND RIDGES. AMAZING.            ClicheVortex2014, 6-29-17

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, 1-3-16           2.           CHECK OUT MEXICO WITH THE DEEPEST BLUES.

THEY WERE ALL A BLUE/WHITE COLOR - NOT THE TYPICAL YELLOWS OR ORANGE DURING                             A WARM STORM T STORM.

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 OVER NEXT WEEK!                 Crimson Sprite, from her post of  1-2-15 2.            THIS IS LOOKING LIKE A CLASSIC "LAUREL HIGHLANDS SPECIAL", AND WILL BE ONE OF THOSE DAYS I WISH I HAD STAYED IN JOHNSTOWN! IN MY AREA, WE ARE SO SNOW –STARVED, EVEN SOME MOOD FLAKES WOULD BE A BONUS.                                                                                    Pax Patriot, 1-4-15              3.           TWITTER IS A POOR WAY TO LAYOUT ONE’S THOUGHTS. CHARACTER LIMIT MAKES TWITTER A BAD MEDIUM FOR THOUGHTS ON METEOROLOGY AND CLIMATOLOGY         RobB, 1-5-15                       4.            I’M POLYMERIZED TREE SAP AND YOU’RE AN INORGANIC ADHESIVE SO WHATEVER VERBAL PROJECTILE YOU LAUNCH IN MY DIRECTION IS REFLECTED OFF OF ME RETURNS TO ITS ORIGINAL AND ADHERES TO YOU                     Cliché Vortex2014, 1-6-15                5.            WE DON’T ONLY USE MODELS, BUT DARE TO GO ON “ORGANIC” METHODS, SORCERY, AND SOMETIMES DOWNRIGHT GOOD INSTINCT GAINED BY WATCHING THE WINDS FOR MANY YEARS                                                                Undertakerson, 1-6-15        6.            ICE STORMS CERTAINLY ARE DESTRUCTIVELY BEAUTIFUL; THE AFTERMATH IS TRULY UNIQUE                          Maine Jay, from his post of 1-11-15 7.            AH - THE CURSE OF USING ACRONYMS - FORGIVE ME, I AM A HUMBLE GOVERNMENT SERVANT WHO IS USED TO REDUCING EVERYTHING TO ACRONYM STYLE - TEXTING HAS NOTHING ON GOV'T WORK FOR CREATING SHORTCUTS TO SAY WHAT THEY REALLY MEAN.                        Undertakerson, 1-13-15 8.            IF YOU LIKE WINTER COME TO MI. IF THERE IS WARMTH OUR STATE SOMEHOW ALWAYS AVOIDS IT.                                   Alczervik, 1-19-15              9.            WE ARE FACED WITH HEAVY SNOWFALL AT SOUTHERN & TROPICAL PARTS OF IRAN AND NO SUITABLE SNOW COVER AT THE NORTHERN PARTS OF THE LAND!

SOME NAIVE PEOPLE THINK THAT IT IS COME FROM US HARP TECHNOLOGY BUT IT IS NOT TRUE BECAUSE THE ATMOSPHERE IS TOO COMPLICATED AND NO ONE IS ABLE TO ARRANGE IT FOR HIS PURPOSE AND IT IS JUST CLIMATE CHANGE DUE TO MAN MADE ACTIVITIES.                                                            Amir Mohsen, 1-20-15       10.         PHL: MEGA DEATHBAND THAT COMES OUT OF NOWHERE AND SITS ON TOP OF THE CITY FOR 12 HOURS --60", THE TRUE WINNERS OF THE BLIZZARD                                                        Weatherjunkie, 1-25-15—about the (remote) possibility of being NAMed to the max 11.          THE WEATHER MUST FOLLOW THE LAWS OF PHYSICS. IF WE WERE TO HAVE THE KNOWLEDGEOF EVERY VARIABLE THAT AFFECTS THE WEATHER PATTERNS AND HAVE EVERY VALUE FOR ALL THOSE VARIABLES CORRECT THE OUTCOME WOULD BE THE SAME ON EVERY MODEL RUN, IF THE MODEL HAD 100% ACCURATE PROGRAMMING. A STORM WILL TRACK WHERE IT DOES BECAUSE IT HAS TO.

Accuweather Forum Quotes from 2014

1.             ONE OF MY NEW FAVORITE WORDS, AGEOSTROPHIC FLOW,                 SEEMS TO REAR ITS HEAD OFTEN TOO. I UNDERSTAND IT                 TO BE WINDS THAT CURVE TO THE RIGHT BECAUSE OF                 CORIOLIS. THIS LINES THE WINDS WITH THE ISOBARS,                 "LOCKING" IN THE AIR AT THE SURFACE.                                         Maine Jay, from his post of 1-3-14 2.             I GUESS PARTLY SUNNY, OR WE AREN’T GETTING THE                 STORM, OR WE AREN’T GETTING THE BRUNT OF THE                 STORM DOES NOT ENHANCE VIEWERSHIP (wink)-                                          RTCEMC, 1-3-14 3.             OL STAN DOUBTSIDE JUST CAME IN ASKING FOR THE ICE                 PACK WHILE HOLDING HIS SACRAL LUMBAR REGION.                 MUMBLED SOMETHING ABOUT NOT REMEMBERING                 SIGNING UP FOR THE ICE FOLLIES.                                                        Undertakerson, from his humorous post of Jan. 5, 2014 4.             THAT TOO COLD TO SNOW THING IS A MYTH!!! IF THE                 SETUP IS RIGHT...IT WILL SNOW. Winter Wolf, from his post of 1-14-14 5.             I'M INTRIGUED BY ANY SETUP THAT STARTS WITH A                 RIDGE OUT WEST. WITH THAT SAID, NOT ALL CLIPPERS                 DODGE, DUCK, DIP, DIVE AND DODGE. SOME SNOW                 SHOWERS FOR THE INTERIOR AND JUST KEEP AN EYE                 OUT IF YOU'RE IN SNE BUT THIS LOOKS TO TAKE THE                 FIRST TRAIN OUT TO SEA                                                                                           PSU1313, 1-15-14 6.             I'M IN SNOW HEAVEN RIGHT NOW. NEVER SEEN IT SNOW                 THIS HEAVY. POURING BUCKETS OF SNOW, FLAKES ARE                 GIGANTIC, ALMOST ALL OF THEM ARE BIGGER THAN                 QUARTER SIZED. IT'S WET SNOW BUT ACCUMULATING                 INSTANTLY ON EVERYTHING, I CAN LITERALLY SEE IT                 ACCUMULATING AS IT'S FALLING.                                                                        NYCSuburbs, about a snowstorm in New Jersey on 1-18-14 7.             WHY DO YOU PEOPLE LIVE AND DIE BY EACH AND                 EVERY MODEL RUN???? Winter Wolf, from his post of 1-18-14 8.             A HUGE RIDGE SPANNING THE ENTIRE NORTH PACIFIC                 AND IN RESPONSE, A TROUGH DEVELOPING OVER THE                 WHOLE OF NORTH AMERICA. THIS PATTERN IS MADNESS.                 IT'S ENOUGH TO MAKE ME CONFIRM A ONE-WAY TO                 PERU! FORGET THIS, I'M OUTTA HERE!                                               01/24/14                36      9                 MerryChristmas, 1-22-14 9.             WE KNOW NOTHING UNTIL THE MOMENTS WE                 ANTICIPATE ACTUALLY HAPPEN--MOST OF THE REST                 IS JUST GOOD GUESSES.                                                                              01/31/14                3       22                 Undertakerson, 1-26-14 10.          I'M A LOVER OF WORDS, AND A SCRABBLE JUNKIE, SOME                 WORDS ARE JUST SO PARSIMONIOUS AND ELEGANT                                  Maine Jay, From his post of 1-29-14 11.          IT IS NO LONGER A VORTEX LOCATED IN POLAR REGIONS.                 IT IS DRIFTING OFF ANYWHERE THAT IT CAN SPIT OUT                 FRIGID WEATHER IN MIDDLE LATITUDES! IT IS LIKE                 CALLING A SURINAMESE IMMIGRANT A 'CANADIAN' WHEN                 THEY COME TO CANADA, GET CITIZENSHIP AND TAKE OFF                 WITH A CANADIAN PASSPORT. THE POLAR VORTEX                 SHOULD LOSE ITS NORTH POLE CITIZENSHIP                 AND GET DEPORTED TO TIBET!!! LOL                                                  01/31/14                32      9                 MerryChristmas, 1-30-14 12.          THE WEATHER NUT IN ME LIKE TO SEE A NICE GLAZE OF                 ICE OVER EVERYTHING, BUT IF IT'S GOING TO RAIN SO                 HARD IT WON'T EVEN FREEZE, MIGHT AS WELL BE A BIG                 SLEET FEST. AT LEAST THAT WILL ACCUMULATE.                               JD Clapper, 2-1-14 13.          JUST BECAUSE I MAY DISAGREE WITH YOU DOES NOT                 MEAN I DO NOT ADMIRE OR RESPECT YOU, FOR FROM                 DISAGREEMENT COMES DISCUSSION AND FROM                 DISCUSSION IS BORNE UNDERSTANDING                                                           Undertakerson, February 2014 14.          THOSE IN CHARGE AT NAEFS GOT A LITTLE TOO MUCH                 BLUE PAINT AFTER RUNNING OUT IN 2011-12, LOOKS LIKE                 THEY'RE MAKING USE OF ALL THAT EXTRA PAINT                 WHILE IT LASTS                                                                                                       NYCSuburbs, 2-27-14 15.          THE PAINSTAKING PROCESS THAT IS THE POSITIVE                 FEEDBACK LOOP IS AT WORK. BECAUSE IT'S DRY, THE                 MOISTURE IN STORM SYSTEMS DECREASES, LEADING TO                 DRIER GROUND, LEADING TO DRIER SYSTEMS, AND SO ON.                   The Snowman, 3-8-14 16.          WEATHER KNOWS NO BOUNDS AND DOESN'T RESPECT                 BORDERS COUNTRIES SET UP.                                                                          Ryan Duff, 3-21-14 17.          I WAS ALWAYS TOLD THE TIGHTER THE ISOBARS THE                 STRONGER THE WINDS BUT BY THE LOOKS OF MOST                 STORMS THEY LOOK MORE TIGHTER FOR MY AREA BUT                 WE NEVER GET STRONG WINDS-                                                            Shane O’Mac,3-2014* 18.          THIS IS WHAT I FIND FASCINATING ABOUT METEOROLOGY;                 NOT NECESSARILY WHERE THE FORECAST GETS IT RIGHT,                 BUT WHERE THE FORECAST IS WRONG WHICH CAN SERVE                 AS A LEARNING TOOL FOR FUTURE CASES. THIS IS                 ESPECIALLY IMPORTANT TO TAKE ADVANTAGE OF IN MY                 OPINION AS SOME ISSUES SEEM TO COME UP WITH THE                 SAME MISTAKES MADE REPEATEDLY…                                                             NYCSuburbs, 3-31-14 19.          I ALWAYS SAY......THE LONGER WE CAN KEEP THE                 WARMTH AWAY, THE SHORTER THE JOURNEY TO THE                 NEXT SNOWSTORM. YEAH, SOMETHING ISN’T RIGHT WITH                 ME TODAY IF I AM SITTING IN A DINER HAVING                 BREAKFAST BEFORE STARTING MY REPAIR JOBS LOOKING                 AT A WEATHER FORUM                                                                                       Mr. Freeze, 4-2-14 20.          THE "ABILITY" TO FORECAST SEVERE WEATHER ON A                 SPECIFIC DATE IN THE LONG RANGE IS PURE "SORCERY"!      04/18/14                95      2                 JDRenken, From his post of 4-12-14 21.          NEW HAMPSHIRE IS FAMOUSLY THE STATE WITH NO INCOME TAX, SALES TAX, AND NO REQUIREMENT FOR CAR INSURANCE, AND I THINK, STILL NO SEATBELT LAWS FOR THOSE OVER 18, YET PROPERTY TAXES CAN BE WEIRD, FROM WHAT I UNDERSTAND, THERE IS A VIEW TAX FOR THOSE WHO ARE DEEMED TO HAVE A VALUABLE VIEW.         Maine Jay, From his post of  6-17-14 22.          EVERY DAY THAT DOESN'T REACH 90 HERE FOR ME IS ONE LESS DAY I HAVE TO WORRY ABOUT. GIVE ME 75 WITH A NICE BREEZE.                                                                                  So Maine Snow, 6-23-14 23.          MORRO BAY IS ALWAYS WINDY, AT LEAST EVERY TIME THAT I'VE BEEN THERE. NOT TO MENTION THAT GIANT MORRO ROCK LITERALLY GENERATES ITS OWN FOG. I'VE ALWAYS FOUND PASO ROBLES TO BE STRANGE IN TERMS OF TEMPERATURE. THEY CAN GET SURPRISINGLY HOT OR COLD DURING EVEN WEAK TEMPERATURE FLUCTUATIONS, UNLIKE PRETTY MUCH ANYWHERE ELSE WITHIN 100 MILES OF THE CITY, WHICH ARE MUCH MILDER IN COMPARISON.     Beck, 7-7-14 24.          STRANGE WEATHER TODAY. AFTER THE CLOUDY WEATHER AND LIGHT RAIN THIS MORNING IT MOSTLY CLEARED UP AND GOT WARM AND MUGGY. AROUND 5PM A VERY STRONG WIND CAME FROM THE SOUTH AND TEMPORARILY BROUGHT IN SOME MARINE LAYER CLOUDS. THE WIND DIED DOWN AND THE MARINE LAYER CLOUDS RETREATED AND THE REST OF THE EVENING WAS COOL AND DAMP WITH MORE HIGH CLOUDS.                      Jet Developer, 7-15-14 25.          FEEL FREE TO TAKE THE ANTI-STORM BUBBLE                 AT ANY TIME                                                                                                   NYCSuburbs, from his post of circa 8-2-14 26.          I LIVE IN COLORADO SPRINGS AND THERE ISN'T A LOT OF SITES FOR US WESTERN STATES. WHICH IN MY OPINION SUCKS, BUT I CAN ONLY HOPE THAT YOU GUYS THROWS THIS COLORADO RESIDENT A BONE.                                                    Stephanie from Colorado, 8-6-14 27.          IN SPITE OF PREDICTIONS, PROBABLY THE ONLY THING YOU CAN COUNT ON IS HOW UN-PREDICTABLE THE WEATHER ACTUALLY IS THESE DAYS. I THINK IF I WAS A METEOROLOGIST I WOULD BE MISSING THE "GOOD OLD DAYS" WHEN NATURE DIDN’T THROW SO MANY CURVEBALLS. BUT AT LEAST THE CRAZY WEATHER GIVES SOME AN OPPORTUNITY TO SHARPEN THEIR SKILLS AND TEST THEIR THEORIES.                                                     2007Cobalt, 9-13-14 28.          WELL, THE FOLIAGE IS STARTING TO PICK UP SOME NICE COLORS, THE SUMACS ARE CRIMSON RED, AND THE HARDWOODS SWAMPS ARE VIBRANT SHADES OF ORANGE AND RED. WITH ALL THE RAIN WE GOT THIS SUMMER, THE LEAF PEEPING SEASON COULD BE NICE IN MY AREA, BARRING ANY WIND EVENTS. EDIT: I THOUGHT I SHOULD ADD, UNLIKE THE COPIOUS AMOUNT OF ACORNS THAT THE NUMEROUS OAKS AROUND MY HOUSE PRODUCED LAST YEAR, THE OAKS HAVE PRODUCED A RATHER MEAGER AMOUNT THIS YEAR MY OPINION.                                    Maine Jay, From his post of 9-25-14 29.          WE GOT WALLOPED LAST JAN/FEB WITH THOSE SNOWS, THEN THERE WERE FOUR FORECASTS OF 6+ INCHES THAT BUSTED WITHIN 24 HOURS OF THE EVENT WITH ZERO FLAKES, MUCH LESS INCHES...AND IT SEEMS THAT SINCE THEN ALMOST ALL FORECASTS FOR RAIN HAVE ALL BUT COMPLETELY BUSTED. NOT SURE WHAT THE MODELS ARE NOT PICKING UP, BUT SOMETHING HAS TO BE DONE BY THE PROS. PREDICTIONS WERE BETTER IN 1974 THAN THEY ARE IN 2014.                                                            MillerA, 9-25-14 30.          I WOULD RATHER EAT CROW IN 3 MONTHS...THAN CROW LIKE A CHICKEN BEFORE ANY EGGS ARE EVEN HATCHED...                                                                          Idecline, from his post of 10-8-14 31.          WEATHER'S A BIT LIKE PHILOSOPHY, HUH? SO MANY QUESTIONS, SO FEW ANSWERS...                                                     The Snowman, 10-19-14 32.          BURNING SMALL SCRAP PIECES FOR NOW. DON'T YOU LOVE THE SMELL OF FIREWOOD IN THE AIR AND THE CRISP CLEAN AIR? SO MODELS ALL AGREE ON THE COLD AIR SPILLING DOWN BUT NATURALLY DIFFER ON ANY PRECIP./ABSOLUTELY...FUNNY HOW THE SMALLER THINGS IN LIFE CAN BE SO COOL, I THOUGHT IT WAS JUST ME THAT ENJOYED THIS                                                                             Noreaster07 and Fire/Rescue, 10-26-14 33.          YOU GOTTA LOVE THE MEDIA!! OH WAIT...NO YOU DON'T!      RobB, 11-9-14 34.          FANTASY SNOWSTORMS BEFORE THANKSGIVING TURKEY IS EVEN ROASTING. MIGHT BE AN INTERESTING WINTER. NOTHING CAN BE AS AGGREGATING AS LAST YEAR'S MODEL MAYHEM. AS ALWAYS HOPING TO LEARN MORE ABOUT THE WEATHER AND THE CORRELATIONS BETWEEN EAST COAST STORMS AND UNDERTAKERSON'S GOLF HANDICAP. TELEKINECTIONS MATTER.                                 RisingRiver, 11-10-14 35.          IN A NUTSHELL, I SEE TOO MUCH RELIANCE ON DAMMING IN ZR FORECASTING. SURFACES WERE ABOVE FREEZING DURING THE DAY TODAY, AND FORECAST LOWS ARE NOT ALL THAT LOW. DAMMING OF 31° AIR IS SIMPLY NOT GOING TO PRODUCE LONG DURATION ZR OR SNOW. MY FORECAST FOR WESTERN ME FOOTHILLS IS FOR SNOW TO MIXING IN EARLY AM, POCKETS OF ZR THROUGH MIDDAY IN VALLEY LOCATIONS, AND MOSTLY A RAIN EVENT OVERALL.                  11/21/14                56      9 Mightysween, 11-16-14 36.          FOR EXAMPLE; LAKE-EFFECT SNOW... THE MORE LAKE- EFFECT SNOW YOU GET EARLY ON, THE EARLIER THE LAKES WILL FREEZE. THE EARLIER THE LAKES FREEZE, THE EARLIER THE LAKE-EFFECT SNOW SEASON ENDS. THE POSITIVE THING IS EARLY-SEASON LAKE-EFFECT SNOW. THE CONSEQUENCE IS THE LAKES FREEZING EARLY IN THE SEASON, WHICH EFFECTIVELY ENDS THE LAKE-EFFECT SNOW SEASON EARLIER THAN USUAL. IF YOU ENJOY IT EARLIER, YOU WON'T BE ABLE TO ENJOY IT LATER.                                                                                               11/28/14                37     10 ClicheVortex2014, 11-23-14 37.          NOTE THAT THE MISERY INDEX (MI) DOES NOT FACTOR IN CRANKY RELATIVES, TRAFFIC CONGESTION, AGITA, 33° RAIN, DRY SLOTTING, SHARP CUTOFFS, SLEET, VIRGA, FOOD COMAS, OR A POORLY COOKED TURKEY.                            Maine Jay, From his post of 11-24-14 38.          YOU MY FRIEND ARE IN PRIME LOCATION TO GET THE BEST DUMPING IN ALL OF PENNSYLVANIA. ENJOY!                     11/28/14                94      2 PARoadDawg,11-25-14 39.          I PERSONALLY LIKE THE 850 FREEZING LINE BETTER THAN THE STANDARD 1000-500 THICKNESSES AS A P-TYPE RULE OF THUMB... IT CAN STILL SLEET OR RAIN WITH 850 HPA TEMPS BELOW FREEZING IF MID-LEVEL OR SURFACE TEMPS ARE TOO WARM, RESPECTIVELY, BUT IT CAN'T SNOW WITH 850 HPA ABOVE FREEZING AS IT INDICATES THE PRESENCE OF ABOVE- FREEZING TEMPERATURES ALOFT.                                                       12/05/14                60      7 NYCSuburbs, from his post of 12-2-14 40.          CUTOFF LOWS ARE A COMPLETE NIGHTMARE FOR FORECASTERS                                                             12/05/14                57      9 Shane O’Mac, 12-3-14 41.          BACK END SNOW IS AN OL' WIVES TALE. / MOST SYSTEMS – YES. BUT WITH RETROGRESSION, IT IS NOT THE "TYPICAL" BACK END SNOW PHANTOM - SO THIS DEFORMATION BANDING LOOKS TO BE BASED IN REALITY.                                    MillerA and Undertakerson, 12-8-14 42.          MY ONLY ENTERTAINMENT IS WATCHING SWATHS OF MELTING SLUSH SLIDE OFF THE METAL ROOF ABOVE AND PLOP ONTO THE METAL ROOF BELOW MY WINDOW.                    KPK33X, from his post of 12-9-14 43.          WELCOME TO THE ALBANY HOLE, WHERE EXCITING WEATHER DOES NOT EXIST UNLESS YOU LEAVE                           NYCSuburbs, from his post of 12-10-14 44.          THE WEATHER MODELS ARE HINTING AT A POTENTIALLY SIGNIFICANT WINTER STORM IN THE EASTERN UNITED STATES THIS WEEKEND, BUT THEY'RE VAGUE ON THE SMALL DETAILS LIKE "WHAT WILL HAPPEN?" WASHINGTON D.C., FOR INSTANCE, COULD SEE EITHER ONE OR FOURTEEN INCHES OF SNOW, OR RAIN, OR SUNSHINE. WELCOME TO WINTER!                                                        Bvrdgpa, 12-15-14 45.          IF ONLY...UNFORTUNATELY WE KNOW BETTER, THANKS FOR POSTING THOUGH, NICE TO SEE THE BALL THERE, EVEN IF IT INEVITABLY GETS TAKEN AWAY AS WE GO TO KICK IT...

Accuweather Forum Quotes from 2013

2013  This is my fifth post on this blog, covering 2013, which had 31 quotes.   1     1.           SO, WHERE EXACTLY CAN WE EXPECT THE BOMBOGENESIS TO TAKE PLACE AFTER THE TRIPLE PHASE?                                                JB1979, from his post of 1-2-13 2.            JUST LIKE YOU NEED A STRING OF SYSTEMS TO BREAK DOWN THE SE RIDGE, YOU NEED A STRING OF SYSTEMS TO BREAK DOWN AND MOVE THE RIDGE EAST INTO THE ROCKIES TO BENEFIT THE EC. WEAK SYSTEMS WILL RIDE THE TOP JUST LIKE A RING OF FIRE PATTERN IN THE SUMMER AND JUST LIKE THE SUMMER, WON'T MOVE IT EITHER. JDRenken, 1-6-13 3.             I LOVE FEW THINGS BETTER THAN THOSE COLD CRISP NIGHTS WHERE THE STARS ARE SO BRIGHT THEY SEEM TO BURN IN THE NIGHT SKY...JUST SITTING AND STARING UP IN AMAZEMENT AT THEM. OR THE EVENING HIKES IN THE DARK DURING A NEAR OR AT FULL MOON, WHEN EVERY SHAPE IS TRANSFORMED BY THE DARK. THE DARK IS WHAT YOU MAKE OF IT...TRY MAKING INTO SOMETHING SPECIAL INSTEAD OF INTO SOMETHING SINISTER, DOES WONDERS FOR YOUR PSYCHE.-TELEJUNKIE                                                                Telejunkie, 1-10-13 4.             IT COULD BE SNOW, RAIN, HURRICANES, TORNADOES, OR FIREBALLS FROM THE SKY FOR ALL WE CARE, THEY JUST LOVE WEATHER. WEATHER HUNTERS DON’T TRAVEL AROUND ROOTING FOR PEOPLE TO GET HURT AND PROPERTY DESTROYED, THEY DO IT TO WITNESS AN AMAZING WEATHER EVENT.                                                                 SaintCabbage, 1-24-13 5.             GREAT TALES CAN BE EXTREMELY BELIEVABLE, BUT BEING ABLE TO STAY AS OBJECTIVE AS HUMANLY POSSIBLE RESULTS IN RATIONAL, POWERFUL, AND SUPPORTED ANALYSIS. WHETHER WE ARE DISCUSSING CELLULAR BIOLOGY OR IN THIS CASE METEOROLOGY, WE MUST ACCEPT THE FACTS RATHER THAN FIGHT THEM.    BeninBaltimore, 1-27-13 6.             YOU KNOW WHAT THEY SAY... IF YOU AREN'T WISHCASTING, YOU ARE BITTERCASTING.    Blizz, 2-4-13        7.             EARLY MARCH IS A CRAPSHOOT FOR ME WHERE I AM.

I'M WATCHING MY 8-10" NIRVANA WASH DOWN THE STORM DRAIN. WHAT A DOWNER. HOW COULD THE MODELS BE SO WRONG? WHERE DID ALL THE WARM AIR COME FROM?? WHAT IS IT THAT STUMPED THE MODELS THIS TIME AROUND? WE GOT ABOUT 3" BEFORE SOMEONE TURNED ON THE HAIRDRYER.                                                                     Felton Flyer, 3-6-13 11.          REMEMBER, LASERS DON'T KILL ROCKS, ROVERS DO                NE2X, 3-6-13 12.          YOU CAN TAKE THINGS PERSONALLY IN LIFE...BUT THAT IS YOUR CHOICE AND YOUR CHOICE ALONE.... JUST CHILL OUT AND OBSERVE...MAN HAS NO CONTROL OVER THE WEATHER ...WE CAN ONLY WATCH AND BE IN AWE                Idecline, from his post of 3-22-13 13.          ENJOY IT WHENEVER YOU CAN, BUT BEWARE, SUNSHINE IS NOT FOR EVERYONE - SIDE EFFECTS ARE LACK OF THINGS TO WRITE ABOUT IN ACCUWEATHER.COM, BROWNING HILLS, INCREASING FIRE DANGER, SUNBURN, AND SKIN CANCER.                           Jet Developer, 3-24-13 14.          EVERYONE OF US HERE COULD BE RENOWNED METEOROLOGICAL GENIUSES AND STILL NOT FULLY UNDERSTAND THE MECHANICS OF OUR ATMOSPHERE, WHICH MEANS A MODEL WILL ALWAYS BE JUST THAT... A MODEL... A GUIDE WITH OBVIOUS AND HIDDEN FLAWS. THAT’S WHAT MAKES WEATHER FUN AND EXCITING... EVERY CASE IS DIFFERENT AND EVERY CASE TESTS EVERY BIT OF KNOWLEDGE YOU HAVE JUST TO GET 75% ( A GRADE OF A C ) OF IT RIGHT. VASnowstormhunter, 3-25-13   15.          IT WAS 85 HERE YESTERDAY. IT'S 68 AND WINDY NOW. THEY FORECAST FLURRIES AND 34 DEGREES FOR TONIGHT. JUST ANOTHER DAY IN ERIE PA. CENTRAL AIR ON BY DAY, FURNACE BY NIGHT. BLAH.                                                ErieWx, 4-19-13 16.          LUCKILY I AM JUST FAR ENOUGH FROM THE OCEAN TO AVOID THE EFFECTS OF THE SEA BREEZE, BUT THE DEW POINTS HAVE BEEN EXTREMELY LOW, WE COULD USE SOME RAIN. THE ONLY BAD THING, THE BLACK FLIES ARE OUT EN FORCE. BEEN DONATING TOO MUCH BLOOD TO THOSE PARASITES.                                                                 Maine Jay, 4-30-13 17.          LOL. MODEL INCONSISTENCY.

NYCSuburbs, 9-26-13 19.          HIGH PRESSURES IN AUTUMN. ALLOWS FOR THE SUN DURING THE DAY TO WARM THINGS UP BUT THEN NO CLOUDS AFTER SUN GOES DOWN ALLOWS HEAT TO ESCAPE THE SURFACE AND COOL DOWN A LOT. (HEAT RISES.) I CALL THIS SOLAR WARMING AND RADIATIONAL COOLING.   Noreaster07, 9-29-13 20.          IT'S ALL ABOUT THE PATTERN AND PICKING THE RIGHT                 PATTERN IS WHAT IT'S ALL ABOUT!                                                     10/18/13                13     17                 JDRenken, 10-2013 21.          SAW THE FIRST SNOW OF THE SEASON THIS AFTERNOON...

BRING THE SNOW!!!                  Mikey1220, 10-24-13 22.          SO AS WE GET INTO THE MEAT AND POTATOES PART OF AUTUMN - THAT PART THAT STRIPS DOWN THE LEAFS AND LEAVES THE WOODS WITH A "LONELY LOOK", BRINGS HOAR FROSTS ON THE BRITTLES STUBBLE LEFT TO FALLOW THE FIELDS, MAKES THE WINDS OF BOREAS ALL THAT TOUGHER TO TAKE AND SCATTERS FLAKES INTO THE FORECAST - WE SEE SOME SMALL SIGNS TO KEEP AN EYE ON.                                                         Undertakerson, Oct. 28, 2013 23.          WISE FORECASTERS ALWAYS LOOK BOTH WAYS BEFORE FORECASTING                                                       Undertakerson, Nov. 19, 2013 24.          LOVE THIS TIME OF THE YEAR, MODEL MAYHEM        Shane O’Mac, 11-23-13 25.          2Z GFS APPEARS TO BRING THE STORM IN A FEW DAYS EARLIER BUT ITS A WAVE RUNNER. NOTHING SPECIAL AND JUST SHEARS OUT TO SEA                                                                           PA Road Dawg, 11-29-13 26.          WELL, LAW OF AVERAGES OR TREND IS YOUR FRIEND?

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 Superstorm Sandy on Oct. 29. The year wrapped up with two overperforming snowstorms for us in late December. This helped us achieve yet another wetter than normal year, despite a major deficit from February-July.   1.             IF I HAD 1 WISH, I'D WISH FOR MORE WISHES.

NOW THAT I'M AWARE, THERE'S NO TURNING BACK.                      SevereNJWx, 1-9-12 6.             WOW, THE GFS IS SUCH A GREAT MAGICIAN! IT JUST VANISHED THE CLIPPER (BEST SHOT AT SNOW SO FAR THIS SEASON IN DELAWARE) RIGHT BEFORE MY EYES                 ON THE 12Z! THAT IS REAL TALENT!                                                                    Weathermsk, 1-11-12 7.             SQUALL LINE DOESN'T NECESSARILY HAVE TO MEAN SEVERE THUNDERSTORMS; IT CAN MEAN A LINE OF LOCALLY HEAVY RAIN, GUSTY WINDS AND MAYBE RUMBLES OF THUNDER.                                                                                        NYCSuburbs, from his post of 1-21-12 8.             EVERYTHING IS WAY AHEAD OF SCHEDULE THOUGH AS FAR AS SPRING GOES (BUGS, PERENNIALS, GRASS, YARDWORK, ETC.)                                                                                        The Maine Man, 3-18-12 9.             AS IF ON CUE, OUR DEPT HAD OUR FIRST DECENT BRUSH FIRE YESTERDAY AFTERNOON...ONLY BURNED ABOUT 1/2 ACRE THANKS TO ALMOST NO WINDS, BUT THE FIELD WAS DEFINITELY BONE DRY AND WAITING TO FLARE.                           Telejunkie, from his post of 3-20-12 10.          MY FAVORITE, 38 DEGREE RAIN... THE ONLY THING BETTER IS THE 32.1 DEGREE HEAVY DOWNPOUR  I'D ASSUME THE NUMBER OF 38 DEGREE RAINS WE'VE SEEN THIS YEAR IS CLOSE TO THE AVERAGE DAYS OF SNOW WE GET PER WINTER...

NYCSuburbs, from his post of 5-1-12 13.          THERE'S NOTHING WORSE FOR A SNOW LOVER THAN A SUMMER FULL OF BLOCKING REPLACED BY AN ENDLESS ZONAL FLOW IN THE WINTER                                                                                             NYCSuburbs, circa late May 2012 14.          CAN'T EVEN RAIN RIGHT AROUND HERE, LET ALONE STORM. WAS HOPING WE'D FINALLY GET A COUPLE OF THUNDERSTORMS, BUT AS USUAL NO INSTABILITY AROUND HERE. Dave12308, from his post of 6-12-12 15.          40 YEARS AGO IN WEATHER HISTORY, I WAS INTRODUCED TO A GIRL NAMED AGNES. I'VE NOT BEEN QUITE THE SAME, EVER SINCE                                                                                                                Undertakerson, from his post of  June 2012 16.          COINCIDENCE, THE NUMBER OF THE YEAR IS NO INDICATION OF THE AVERAGE TEMPERATURE OF ANY MONTH. THOUGH HERE IN NORTHERN OHIO I'VE HAD THE SAME THING. 2000 AND 2004 WERE COOLER THAN NORMAL, 2008 WAS NORMAL OR VERY SLIGHTLY COOLER, AND THE REST HAVE ALL BEEN STRICTLY AT OR ABOVE NORMAL, WITH 2009 AND 2011 THE CLOSEST TO NORMAL (USING AVERAGE OF ALL STATIONS IN VICINITY). DOESN'T PRE-DATE THIS CENTURY HOWEVER, AS 1999 AND 1997 WERE AT OR BELOW NORMAL (NOT LEAP YEARS). AND IN SOUTHERN OHIO, 2009 WAS COOLER THAN NORMAL. JUST HAPPENS TO BE A COINCIDENCE IN THIS PARTICULAR PART OF THE COUNTRY (BOTH MINE AND YOURS). HOPE IT CONTINUES FOR AT LEAST ONE MORE YEAR THOUGH!                                                       Hertz, from his post of 6-24-12 17.          IT'S REALLY DRY HERE THOUGH, BEEN ABOUT A WEEK AND A HALF SINCE I MOWED THE GRASS HERE, ONLY PLACE IT'S GROWING IS IN THE SHADE, BROWN IN THE SUN AREAS.

MY HOPE IS TO SOMEDAY GET TO WATCH HAIL FALL AND ACTUALLY GET                 TO HOLD A HAILSTONE, REGARDLESS OF WHETHER IT'S ACCUMULATING OR NOT                                   NYCSuburbs, from his post of 7-26-12 22.          ALL THE LOCAL MEDIA WAS IN EXTREME HYPE MODE WITH ADDED CRAWLS ON THE TV SCREEN AND BREAKING NEWS REPORTS AD NAUSEUM. IT JUST GOES TO SHOW THAT WEATHER IS STILL NOT AN EXACT SCIENCE AND WITH ALL THE MODELING AVAILABLE, MISTAKES ARE MADE. UNFORTUNATELY THIS LEADS THE PUBLIC TO DEVELOP THE "CRYING WOLF" SYNDROME, WHICH MAY SOME DAY, LEAD TO CATASTROPHIC RESULTS SHOULD A FORECAST ACTUALLY DEVELOP AS PREDICTED AND BE IGNORED BY THE GENERAL PUBLIC.                                                                   Sky King , 7-27-12 23.          REALLY NICE WEATHER, FINALLY. BUT WHY IS IT THAT WHEN WE GET A LITTLE SHOT OF COOLER WEATHER, ALMOST ALL THE WEATHER GUYS SAY IT LIKE IT'S SOMETHING NEGATIVE? BUT WHEN WE GET ABOVE NORMAL TEMPS, THEY ACT LIKE IT'S A GOOD THING. I WONDER IF IT'S A HOLD OVER FROM SCHOOL WITH THE MENTALITY THAT ANYTHING ABOVE NORMAL IS GOOD AND ANYTHING BELOW NORMAL IS BAD.                                                                Romeovillerez ,from a post dated 8-11-12 24.          EVERY TROPICAL SYSTEM IS COMPLETELY DIFFERENT. YOU CAN'T HAVE TWO ALIKE-- ITS IMPOSSIBLE. THE WEATHER AND PHENOMENON OF WHAT WE CALL THIS EARTH WILL NEVER BE 100% EXACTLY THE SAME AT THE TIME OF A STORM LIKE ANOTHER STORM. THAT IS WHY THIS PLANET IS SO AMAZING AND WE ARE SO FASCINATED BY THE WEATHER.                                                                           Hassaywx2306, 8-22-12 —about Tropical Storm Isaac 25.          FOR THE RECORD—I AM THE MISSOURI MAULER!                                        JDRenken; one of his perennial quotes 26.          WHOA...THAT´S TOO CLOSE INDEED. CMC AND ECMWF WENT MUCH MORE TO THE WEST ON THE 12Z RUN. THIS LESLIE IS STILL NOT SOMETHING TO BE DISREGARDED.                     Phased Vort, 9-3-12 27.          NADINE HAS GOT TO BE THE MOST RIDICULOUS STORM I'VE EVER FOLLOWED... WENT IN 3 ADVISORIES FROM TROPICAL TO SUBTROPICAL TO POST-TROPICAL-- HAVE NO IDEA WHAT COULD POSSIBLY FOLLOW THIS... WE MIGHT AS WELL HAVE NADINE REDEVELOP INTO A MAJOR HURRICANE AND STRIKE GREENLAND AT THIS RATE                                                               NYCSuburbs, from his post of 9-21-12 28.          THERE ARE A LOT OF RED FLAG WARNINGS, INCLUDING FOR OUR MOUNTAINS HERE IN SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA. HIGH HEAT + VERY LOW HUMIDITIES (I OBSERVED A HUMIDITY OF 9% AT MY HOUSE YESTERDAY) + DRIER THAN NORMAL 2011-12 WET SEASON + OFFSHOREFLOW = DANGEROUS FIRE CONDITIONS.                                                     Beck, from his post of 10-2-12 29.          99% OF WINTER STORMS SHOULD REMAIN NAMELESS IS BECAUSE... A SNOWSTORM THAT IS JUST A LITTLE TOO WARM IS USUALLY JUST A NICE, SOFT RAIN EVENT. LOL                              Crazy Don , 10-2-12 30.          WELL THAT'S THE FUN THING ABOUT HISTORY - IF IT HAD HAPPENED BEFORE, IT WOULDN'T BE HISTORIC...AND THE MOST HISTORIC OF EVENTS HAVE ONLY                 EVER HAPPENED ONCE.                                                                                       Umfkgrad2, 10-23-12 31.          THE PROSPECT OF AN EXTREMELY RARE WEATHER EVENT THAT IS COMPLETELY OUT OF OUR CONTROL PRODUCES A COMBINATION OF ANXIETY AND ALLURE WHICH WHEN                 COMBINED LEADS TO EXCITEMENT OVER THE SITUATION.    Beninbaltimore, 10-25-12 32.          I CAN'T CATCH UP...EVERY PAGE I READ, ANOTHER PAGE GETS ADDED!                                                          MissMarisa, from her post of 10-26-12 about Superstorm Sandy 33.          THERE HAVE PROBABLY BEEN SOME STORMS THAT HEADED N OR NNW INSTEAD OF NE, BUT I CAN'T THINK OF ONE THAT TOOK SANDY'S SCENARIO, FROM SE STRAIGHT NORTHWESTWARD PERFECTLY AIMING AT THE NJ COAST, WHILE ALSO INTENSIFYING. THIS IS WHAT MAKES SANDY A HISTORIC STORM. EVEN IN THE FANTASY STORM MAPS I RANDOMLY SKETCH WHEN BORED I NEVER ENVISIONED SUCH A SCENARIO WITH A 948 MB HURRICANE CHARGING STRAIGHT TOWARDS NEW JERSEY. THIS IS ALMOST UNIMAGINABLE WHAT WE'RE ABOUT TO SEE TODAY...WE'VE BEEN SAYING FOR SO LONG THAT NYC WAS REALLY OVERDUE FOR A HURRICANE, AND THIS LOOKS TO BE IT. COMPARED TO THIS, IRENE LOOKS LIKE JUST A PREPARATION. APPARENTLY, MOTHER NATURE TRIED ONCE TO END THE HURRICANE GAP BUT IT WASN'T THE WORST CASE SCENARIO PEOPLE FEARED, SO SHE'S TRYING AGAIN...                                                                                                 NYCSuburbs, from his post of 10-29-12 34.          AWFUL FEELING SITTING IN DARKNESS WITH CANDLES AND HEARING SNAPPING AND RED FLASHING LIGHTS LIGHT UP THE STREET. Stac in Pennsylvania, from her post of 10-29-12                                                                          35.          AND TO THINK WE ROLLED OUR EYES OVER SOME OF THOSE MODEL READINGS A FEW DAYS AGO. 946! MAN THAT MAKES MY JOINTS HURT AND SINUSES JAM JUST TO                 THINK ABOUT IT./ LOW 940'S IS A GOOD POSSIBILITY.                                Undertakerson and Snowman11, 10-29-12 36.          IF THE ECMWF CONTINUES SO SOLID LIKE THIS DURING THE WINTER, WE WILL NOT NEED ANOTHER MODEL. IMPRESSIVE. IT'S GOOD BECAUSE THIS WAY WE WON'T NEED TO BE GOING CRAZY ABOUT STORMS THAT IN THE END WILL NOT BE SNOW ONES FOR THE THREAD'S REGION. LIKE IF THE ECMWF SAYS LAKES CUTTER, THEN IT WILL BE A LAKES CUTTER.                                                                                      Phased Vort, 11-4 -12 37.          HERE'S WHAT I AM CONVINCED IS GOING TO HAPPEN: IT WILL BEGIN TO SNOW ON DEC. 19TH, 2 HOURS AFTER I GET ON THE PLANE TO CALIFORNIA. SOMEHOW, DURING THAT WEEK WE WILL HAVE 3 BACK-TO-BACK NOR'EASTERS. SUDDENLY, THE DAY BEFORE I COME HOME, THE TEMPERATURES WILL SHOOT UP INTO THE HIGH 80S. AND WHEN I LAND IN ALBANY, ALL THE SNOW WILL BE A WET SLOPPY MESS. AT THAT POINT, THE WINTER WILL ONCE AGAIN CEASE TO BE!                                                                                                          Dave12308, from his post of 11-9-12 38.          WELCOME TO THE FUN/MADNESS/AWESOMENESS/                 RESPECTFUL DISAGREEMENT/COMMON ENJOYMENT                 THAT WE ALL COME TO LOVE.                                                          Undertakerson, from his post of Nov. 17, 2012 39.          HISTORIANS, ARCHAEOLOGISTS, MAYA EXPERTS, AND MODERN MAYANS SAY THAT THE ANCIENT MAYA DID NOT SEE THE END OF THE MAYA LONG COUNT CALENDAR AS THE END OF THE WORLD. THEY SAW IT AS SIMPLY THE END OF AN ERA, AND THE BEGINNING OF A NEW ONE. IT'S LIKE HOW WE SEE THE END OF THIS YEAR'S CALENDAR AS THE END OF THIS YEAR.                                                              Zaxflaya, 12-12-12 40.          SO AS THE WAY THINGS LOOK RIGHT NOW, AM I GUESSING CORRECTLY THAT THIS WINTER WILL PROBABLY TURN OUT LIKE LAST WINTER? WHICH WOULD BE VERY LITTLE                 SNOW? I WONDER IF THIS IS GONNA BE THE NORM FROM NOW ON, WITH GLOBAL   WARMING.                                                                         Mulligan, mid-December 2012 41.          I GO UP TO ALBANY, I STAY DRY WHILE NYC GETS HEAVY SNOW. THEN I START TO HEAD SOUTH TOWARDS NYC, JUST AS I GET THERE NYC CHANGES OVER TO RAIN AND ALBANY GETS A FOOT OF SNOW.                                                                   NYCSuburbs, From his post of 12-23-12 42.          AWESOME--THIS IS WHY I ABSOLUTELY LOVE THE SCIENCE                 THAT DRIVES WHAT WE ALL REFER TO AS "WEATHER"                            Fire Rescue, from his post of 12-24-12 43.          IF YOU PEOPLE DO WANT TO OBSESS OVER SOMETHING, OBSESS OVER DEW POINTS INSTEAD OF TEMPS. THAT'S A BETTER INDICATOR OF WHAT YOUR TEMP MAY LOOK LIKE WHEN PRECIP ARRIVES. FOR EXAMPLE MANY NOTED THE LOW DEW POINTS YESTERDAY AND NYC SAW SURPRISE SNOWFLAKES. WITH PRECIP COMING IN HEAVY, TEMPS SHOULD FALL TO THE WET BULB TEMP PRETTY QUICKLY I WOULD THINK.                                                  LoveNYCSnow, from his post of 12-25-12 44.          THE DEATH PING OF SLEET ...

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. AT THIS STAGE IT IS STILL POSSIBLE FOR SOMETHING, SAY SOME LAKE EFFECT CLOUDS, TO MESS IT UP – SO WE’RE GOING TO GO WITH MID TEENS BELOW ZERO FOR NOW. BUT IF NOTHING CHANGES WE COULD EVEN NUDGE THAT NUMBER (MONDAY MORNING’S LOW) A BIT LOWER OVER THE NEXT COUPLE OF DAYS.                                                                       MIKE W in Herkimer, from his post of 1-20-11 2.             PLEASE DON'T LAUGH AT MY QUESTION BECAUSE I WANT  TO LEARN, ONLY LAUGH IF I CHOOSE NOT TO LEARN                 STAC IN PENNSYLVANIA; found in late January; seen as her perennial quote 3.             NOW WE ARE PRESENTED WITH NEW INARGUABLE EVIDENCE WITH EVERY COMPUTER RUN. THE STORM IS GOING TO THE BM. THE STORM IS GOING OTS. NO,                 WAIT -- NOW THE STORM IS A GLC. HEY, IT COULD BE A REPLAY OF '93. WHOOPS -- INLAND RUNNER, MY BAD. MAYBE THERE IS SUCH A THING AS TOO MUCH INFO.                                Said by Damook on 1-25-11  4.            A TRIPLE PHASER WILL REQUIRE TONS OF BLOCKING JUST ONE DAY BEFORE THE STORM FORMS AND THE ARCTIC, PACIFIC, AND SUB-TROPICAL JET STREAMS. THAT                 WOULD HAPPEN MORE ON AN EL NINO THEN A LA NINA. SINCE WE ARE IN A LA NINA, THE PROGRESSIVE FLOW WILL GREATLY HURT ANY CHANCES OF A TRIPLE                 PHASER BECAUSE THERE ISN'T ANY BLOCKING DUE TO THE PROGRESSIVE FLOW.                                                                                  NYOLOGIST, from his post of 1-30-11 5.             UNDERSTANDING CURRENT CONDITIONS IS THE STARTING POINT, AND THE MOST CRITICAL PART, OF ANY WEATHER FORECAST                                                                                       From Doorman or CMC; date unknown; made my top 100 in March 2011 6.             ARE THERE WEATHER PRODUCTS IN WHICH THEY USE A MEDIAN RATHER THAN THE MEAN? I JUST LIKE MEDIANS BECAUSE WHEN THE SAMPLE SIZE IS SMALL                 THE MEAN IS MORE AFFECTED BY OUTLIERS.                                               Said by Beninbaltimore, 3-21-11 7.             FASCINATING 15 MINUTE RIDE FROM MY OFFICE IN ALLENTOWN TO NEW TRIPOLI.

I CAN'T STAND IT ANYMORE. AND WHY DOES CLOUD COVER ALWAYS MESS UP                 CHANCES OF SEVERE WEATHER? I DON'T UNDERSTAND WHY STRONG SUNSHINE IS ALWAYS NEEDED FOR CONVECTION.

TORNADOES FROM NON-SEVERE STORMS. ON THE OTHER HAND, GOING BY THE PATTERN OF THE RAINFALL WHEN THE WORST PART WENT                 THROUGH, THERE WAS DEFINITELY SOME ROTATION TO THE WIND. I DID OBSERVE SOMETHING WHEN I WAS OUTSIDE DURING THE STORM THAT I COULD ONLY                 DESCRIBE AS A "RAIN DEVIL" - A LARGE, WINDY, SWIRLING MASS OF RAIN THAT WENT THROUGH. NO IDEA WHAT IT WAS, BUT IT DID ENHANCE THE "TROPICAL STORM"                 FEEL OF THE EVENT.                                                                                                    Dave12308, from his post of 7-29-11 15.          HAD NUMEROUS STORMS THIS PAST SUNDAY, A TORRENTIAL DOWNPOUR THAT CAME OUT OF NOWHERE YESTERDAY, A SOMEWHAT STRONG EARTHQUAKE TODAY, SEVERE WEATHER POSSIBLE ON                 THURSDAY, AND POSSIBLY A HURRICANE TO DEAL WITH ON SUNDAY AND MONDAY.

BUT NEVERTHELESS, WHEN BIG MONEY IS SPENT BY CITIES OR INDIVIDUALS,                 THEY WANT TO LOOK BACK AND SEE THAT IT WAS WORTH IT. IN THIS SOCIETY, FINANCIAL GENEROSITY AND KINDNESS IS QUICKLY REPLACED BY LAWSUITS WHEN SOMEONE FEELS THAT THEY HAVE BEEN                 LIED TO…INTENTIONALLY OR NOT.                                                                      From Palatine-Chicago, 8-28-11—probably about Irene 17.          FIGURES, I'M GONNA BE IN THE BAHAMAS ON VACATION NEXT WEEK AND IT LOOKS LIKE MARIA WILL BE THERE TOO                                                                                                      Roninmiami, 9-6-11, about Tropical Storm Maria 18.          IT IS JUST RAINING TO BEAT THE BAND. ALMOST 6" OF RAIN TODAY AND A HEAVY T-STORM OCCURRING NOW TO BOOT. THE FLOODING IS GETTING VERY BAD AND IF THE STORMS TRAIN FOR ANOTHER 4-5 HOURS LIKE                        THEY DID EARLIER TODAY, THE FLOODING WILL BE BIBLICAL.

A BIG AMPLIFICATION AS THE EURO WAS SHOWING                 (CMC SHOWED IT TO AN EXTENT ON THE 0Z) AND WE HAVE A CHANCE AT A PRETTY GOOD SNOWSTORM. OBVIOUSLY, THERE'S IN BETWEEN BUT TO GET A STORM ONTO THE EASTERN SEABOARD IT HAS TO DIG.                            PSU1313, 12-28-11

Quotes from Accuweather Forums, 2010

2010 QUOTES FROM ACCUWEATHER.COM FORUMS    I was only a sporadic lurker on the forums during 2010, but I did collect a handful of quotes that year, mostly during the winters (of course). 1.             THERE'S LAKE EFFECT SNOW AND THEN THERE'S FINGER                 LAKE EFFECT SNOW. JUST PURE AWESOMENESS.-                                         Logan Tyler, about a lake-effect snowstorm in our area, 1-8-10 2.             IF WE GET THE OHIO VALLEY PEOPLE TO GET THEIR                 BIG SNOWSTORM ALONG WITH US (MILLER B ), NYC                 WOULD GET A LOT OF SNOW BUT YOUR AREA GETS                 RAIN. AND IF WE GET A MILLER A WHERE RICHMOND                 TO BOSTON GETS SNOW, THEN THE OHIO VALLEY GETS                 SHAFTED ONCE AGAIN. THIS WINTER SEEMS TO BE                 TARGETING THE SAME REGIONS OVER AND OVER AGAIN.                 I'M HAPPY TO SEE THAT THE SNOW DROUGHT IS                 MAINLY OVER FOR THE MID ATLANTIC, BUT WE'D ALSO                 LIKE A SHARE OF IT, IT SEEMS AS IF WE'RE ENTERING                 OUR OWN SNOW DROUGHT IN THE NORTHERN MA.                                    NYC Suburbs , 2-1-10—about the Mid-Atlantic storm of 2/6/10 3.             SERIOUSLY THOUGH, THIS WINTER IS THE WORST FOR                 NEW ENGLAND EVER LOL. YOU HAVE FOUND EVERY                 CONCEIVABLE WAY TO GET SCREWED. 100"+ IN THE M/A                 AND SOME SPOTS IN NE ARE WELL UNDER A FOOT TOTAL                 FOR THE SEASON. THAT'S TWILIGHT ZONE MATERIAL.                             Posted by Megabomb, 2-25-10 4.             ALL FORECASTS BASED ON TELECONNECTIONS &                 MODELS. NO WISHCASTING! OUT OF THE BOX THINKING                 24/7 ACCURATE, DEPENDABLE & GUARANTEED AHEAD                 OF EVERY STORM ON ALERTS! THAT’S THE                 DIFFERENCE! K.I.S.S. KEEP IT SYNOPTICALLY SIMPLE!                              AtownWxWatcher, 2-25-10 5.             WELL, LIKE I SAID...IT'S 15 DAYS AND EVERY DAY OF THAT                 15 DAYS FLUCTUATES WILDLY EVERY DAY. LOL.                                        Posted by Garrett on 8-28-10 6.             PLEASE BE SURE TO COME BACK HERE AND POST                 YOUR STORM OBSERVATIONS...WE LIKE TO HEAR                 FIRSTHAND WHAT THE WEATHER IS DOING OUT                 THERE...ESPECIALLY AFTER TRACKING AND                 FORECASTING SOMETHING FOR OVER 10 DAYS! IF                 YOU CAN TAKE PICTURES OR VIDEO....PLEASE                 CONSIDER OPENING A FREE PHOTO GALLERY ACCOUNT                 TO SHARE YOUR PICTURES AND VIDEO                 MissMarisa, from her post of 9-2-10               7.             IT IS ALWAYS A MYSTERY WHAT EACH HURRICANE                 SEASON WILL BRING                 From Weatherlord, circa 9-3-10 8.             I SURE HOPE WE GET A FEW BIG MILLER B'S CHARGING UP                 THE COAST THIS WINTER-THAT WOULD BE GREAT SINCE                 WE HAD NOTHING LAST YEAR HERE IN SNE!!                                                  Said by Snowrider, Oct. 15, 2010                 SHOOTS A POLAR AIR MASS STRAIGHT INTO THESE                 WITHOUT BARELY ANY MODERATION... SOUNDS                 LIKE GFS FANTASY LAND TO ME                                                                    NYCSuburbs, from his post of 11-8-10 9.             THE WEATHER IS ALWAYS CHANGING. IT MAY NOT BE                 CHANGING NOTICEABLY AT YOUR CURRENT LOCATION                 BUT IT IS SOMEWHERE THOUSANDS OF MILES AWAY                 THAT WILL LIKELY HAVE A DIRECT IMPACT ON WHAT                 YOUR CONDITIONS WILL BECOME AND THOUSANDS OF                 MILES AWAY FROM THAT SYNOPTIC EVENT IS ANOTHER                 SYNOPTIC EVENT THAT HAS A DIRECT CORRELATION TO                 THAT EVENT. ALL TIED TOGETHER IN THE WILD NATURE                 OF GLOBAL THERMAL AND WIND CIRCULATION                                           Said by Hckyplayer8 on 11-21-10 10.          WOW....ALL THIS COLD AIR HANGING AROUND, AND                 WOULDN’T YA KNOW IT JUST AS SOON AS WE GET SOME                 PRECIP THROWN IN.....IT'S JUST A LIL’ BIT TOO WARM FOR                 SNOW AND WE END UP WITH A DREARY COLD RAIN                           Fire/Rescue, 12-5-10—yeah, another Great Lakes Cutter 11.          IT'S ONE THING TO FORECAST NO SNOW, AND NOT GET                 ANY, THEN THERE'S NO DISAPPOINTMENT. BUT WHEN                 THEY TELL YOU "EXPECT HEAVY SNOW AND                 ACCUMULATIONS UP TO 8" ", AND YOU GET NOTHING                 WHATSOEVER, THAT'S JUST CRUEL.                                                                     Said by Letitsnow, 12-6-10—about a lake-effect storm that missed Ithaca, NY 12.          YOU NEED TO POST WHERE YOU ARE LOCATED...WE                 HAVE NO IDEA IF YOU ARE IN VA OR NH OR SOME                 POINT IN BETWEEN.                                                                                               From her post of 12/26/10—about a snowstorm that missed us, naturally—post was directed at me. 13.          I'M NOT EXPECTING ANYTHING, AS A SNOW LOVER IT’S                 AWESOME WATCHING THIS STORM DEVELOP AND SEEING                 EVERYONE ELSE'S REACTION. HOWEVER, I DO THINK THAT                 HAVING A THREAD FOR BOTH THE MID-ATLANTIC AND THE                 NORTHEAST TOGETHER KIND OF CAUSES THIS - WITH SUCH A                 LARGE AREA COVERED IT’S BOUND TO HAPPEN DUE TO THE                 OBVIOUS DIFFERENCES IN OUTCOMES. THIS MEANS THAT                 ANYONE DISCUSSING THEIR WEATHER (OR LACK OF WEATHER)                 OFTEN GETS LABELED AS BITTERCASTING OR WISHCASTING.                 MY INTENTION IS NOT TO BUG ANYONE, BUT SIMPLY TO                 DISCUSS THE WEATHER IN MY AREA. BUT ENOUGH OF THAT,                 THIS STORM IS MASSIVE AND I NEED TO KEEP                 REFRESHING THIS PAGE                                                                                      Said by JohnK on 12/26/10—about that day’s East Coast blizzard Coming soon:  2011--there were more quotes from that year, as that was the first year I collected quotes from the forums consistently.
