  6. Completely OT, but for you guys talking about getting Xbox Game Pass for the Flight Simulator I would highly recommend to buy the 24 months of Xbox live gold from Costco ($95) and load that onto your Microsoft account. Then when you sign up for Game Pass (for $1), it will offer to convert that live gold into game pass for free using a 1:1 conversion. For an even better deal, you can add the 24 months + 12 months codes from Costco for the max 36 months allowed. 2 years through this method: $96 / 3 years: $151 2 years through the regular Game Pass monthly subscription: $360 / 3 years:

  7. I have sadly gotten hooked on it, the graphics are amazing, and they are getting the weather dialed in....the weather feed took a crap at one point yesterday afternoon, but seems to be back work this morning. The cloud textures, the effects for rain showers shading against the scenery, turbulence flying though clouds etc. Found a mod called FS Economy that works with most of the flight sims, the premise being you rent planes and fly missions for money. Eventually you can get enough money to buy your own plane, buy FBO's etc. The attached screenshot was in the Seatac area. Al

  8. You lost me here. If this is a "fake pandemic" designed to destroy Trump... why do places like Australia and most of Europe and Mexico and even parts of Africa have lock downs and strict mandates as well? The Democrats got an extra 6 billion people to play along with their little game and destroy their economies as well?

  9. Just did a night flight from EUG to Burns with some smooth synthwave music playing. Ho lee shitt that game is amazing. Everything looks pretty much spot on. The city lights, Cascades...just beautiful.

  10. Got my fist hike of the season in and was a doozy. Granite mountain about 9 miles round trip and 3800 elevation gain the first 4 miles. Was just beautiful with some of the fall colors starting up.

  11. It gets better...this was sunset over Long Island Sound/east end of Long Island. I've seen some amazing sunsets, but I've never seen the visual effects do what I saw tonight. The sun is off to the right, the bright spot off to the left of the image is a glare/reflection of the sun off the curved part of the windscreen. You can also see the shadow of the glareshield and compass on the lower left side of the image. The white marks on the left side are blemishes on the windscreen. All of this moved/changed as the aircraft pitched and rolled (except the blemished of course). Als

  12. They need to come out with Microsoft Weather Simulator. "Experience blizzards, hurricanes, tornadoes and derechos up close and from the safety and comfort of your own home - without the guilt of property destruction and lost lives! Or if the low clouds and drizzle are getting you down, just turn on the Xbox and turn up the sunshine!" Can you imagine?

  17. An interesting Blog article written by Judah Cohen touches on a few key points regarding the Polar Vortex status and what may lie ahead. I mentioned in this post (a day before his post), that I see signals the Snow Advance Index (SAI) could be quite high this season across Siberia. He seems to be siding with that general idea as well. What's noteworthy, is the weakened state of the PV thus far, this early in the season. As always, it's a "to be continued" wait and see how the strat behaves. The PV is a wild card like in every season. The article is an interesting read if you have the tim

  18. The debate was a total crap-fest. I cringed many times. There was too much taking over each other and interruptions with Trump a bit more than Biden. Trump was a bit more defensive than usual and I'm not sure if that hurt him or not. Maybe he needed a nap. They were both rather embarrassing. Biden however more importantly made some serious and profound mistakes. When Antifa became a topic, Biden barely acknowledged they existed claiming they were an idea, and not an organization which is a profound lie and he knows better. He had a chance to call out Antifa/BLM violence and did not just as he

  21. Yeah, I should be doing yard work but instead I am in a TBM930 cruising at FL280 at 316kn GS headed for KATL. Kinda hazy assuming the weather feed is working right...Looks like the latest patch jacked up the autopilot though....

  25. Yeah, you probably need to get a joystick. I'm running a Logitech extreme 3d pro, it has a simple throttle and the grip twists to control the rudder. It gets the job done and I think they run about $50. I've actually noticed that a lot of youtube simmers use this joystick. When I get back working again I am going to work on getting rudder pedals and a throttle set up. I've also got a "poorman's" track IR set up which consists of a modified PS3 camera and a 3D printed IR LED set up. I paid $50 for that (the real Track IR runs $200).

  26. I just remembered this from late last September 2019, 5 feet of snow in Heart Butte, MT. Even for rural Montana that was pretty early to be getting large amounts of snowfall like that. https://i.imgur.com/MxRaJlt.jpg In the PNW we continued to have one of the coolest and driest beginnings to Fall in years. I was breaking and matching a few low temperature records of my own in Klamath Falls. November was also dry but this changed in the final week during the "Bomb Low" storm in southern Oregon close to Thanksgiving. This gave me a minor blizzard on Nov 26th and it wasn't your typical

  32. Failing to denounce white nationalism when asked if he would denounce white nationalism was the biggest screw up. Everyone expected that he'd say dumb crap, but Chris literally gave him the absolute perfect opportunity to take the high road and denounce white nationalist violence when Joe refused to denounce antifa violence, and he didn't take it. I know he doesn't support white nationalism, so why didn't he just say that?

  33. After analyzing model data, I'm still trying to figure out if the clipper sliding down this weekend is part of the new LRC or a mix of both the old/new pattern. It's fairly evident that the blocking evolving across the Arctic right now is certainly much different than last year. The placement of all the block across the Northern Hemisphere are rather interesting to me. I'm pretty certain that we will be seeing influences of these blocks over the coming cold season. Every year about this time, I try my best to figure out Day 1 of the new LRC and I'm beginning to see some clues fr

  34. Happy Hump Day! I can't believe today is the last day of September. Overall, I'd say its been a great month of weather that practically gave me everything I would have asked for. A fantastic Labor Day weekend followed by some cooler and wetter weather. Then we had an extended dry and tranquil weather pattern which was perfection. Now, we are capping it off on a cool and somewhat wetter note. I'm really looking forward to October as it looks to provide somewhat of that same flavor with many ups and downs.

  38. This is an election year. You can get away with playing to your base for 3 years while you are President. That's fine and dandy. But in that 4th year, you need to try and win over some of the shrinking middle-ground people. That's how you win an election. Playing to your base only gets you so far. People like you or I were always planning on voting for Trump in this election, no matter how this debate went. It wouldn't have changed our minds regardless. Trump needed to try and appeal to those independent, some moderate Republican/Democrat voters. He didn't do that. At all. You think subur

  40. And???? Pics??? Hoping to get north on Saturday for a few hours myself. Worried that by the time I get another chance it may be too late this year. Already, even down in Marshall a bunch of trees are lighting up. Even saw a hardy tree with color. Pretty sure it was an oak. Both '81 and '82 were early color seasons. The first led to the historic cold/snowy winter while the next led to the first modern era super Nino. My thoughts on this autumn being a Nina is that if winter comes in early it will also exit early.

  42. I'm so burned out on this topic. I can't believe some of you are still closely following it. It is not that I do not care, or think COVID is not a serious issue. It is, and I still take the same precautions. I just have to move on with my life. I think the political argument about COVID is about as stupid as can be. Biden blaming the deaths on Trump is about as pathetic as it gets. Trump's response is just as dumb, saying 2 million people would be dead if Biden was President. No, the number would be about 200,000. If Trump was a rational human, he would talk about the per capita statisti
