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. GOES FOR SOCIAL MEDIA

AND TV MEDIA ALIKE....                                                                              

RobB, 12-21-17

 

58.          IF I HAD A DOLLAR FOR EVERY D10+ SNOW STORM THAT

SHOWED UP ON MODELS I WOULD NOT HAVE

TO WORK ANYMORE                                                                             

Plowxpress, 12-25-17

 

59.          RAISE A GLASS OF 'NOG TOWARDS THE SOUTH AND

SALUTE THE SNOWLESS (HA HA)                                                           

RobB, 12-25-17

 

60.          IT'S PRETTY TOUGH TO GET A BIG ONE AROUND HERE,

TOO FAR EAST TO BENEFIT FROM THE PUMPED UP

CUTTERS, TOO FAR WEST TO FEEL BENEFITS OF THE

OCEAN. APPS RUNNERS THAT TRANSFER LATE ARE

REALLY THE THREAD THE NEEDLE STORM THAT

PRODUCE BIG AMOUNTS HERE
