    Default Winter 2010/2011

    Interesting interview by a former MWO intern regarding this winter's storms and how weather models have poorly handled their forecast tracks:

    That just isn't right! We've had more snow south of The Whites region than they have.

    I never want to see a day
    That's over forty degrees
    I'd rather have it thirty,
    Twenty, ten, five and let it freeeeEEEEEEeeze!

    Last night on the weather they mentioned that RI is currently at 40+ inches which is 25 inches above normal for this time. Not that everything has hung south. Definitely parts of the Whites that have gotten buried and I'm sure they'll be getting lots more in the coming months. Not sure we need a whole lot more down here at the moment. Everyone is running out of places to put it!

    We got pounded in No. Jersey too, not sure how much, but like Mark said there isn't anywhere else to put it. I don't mind it so much so far, I just wish the storms would come more on a Friday so I wouldn't have to worry about driving in it and could enjoy it more.

    We are running out of space to put down here too. Especially since very little is melting. I agree with you Kathy that it would be nice to have the storms on Friday's.
