  1. So this region's golden era of winters (65-85) was a result of industrial pollution. I've stated my belief that the pattern was related to the AMO and have been waiting 36 years for a return to it. But per this study it may never return unless we go back to polluting which I would never encourage. The other option is Yellowstone blows it's lid. An even worse scenario. Getting several Mount Saint Helens seems like an extreme long-shot so I'm no longer holding my breath for a return of the glory days AMO of my youth. Wow, disappointing to say the least.
  2. Communism and it's problematic ideology is about more than just a difference of economies. All the same, globalist puppets like Biden are working towards the "Chinese model" where the masses are controlled by the elite class. Similar was the former USSR. Moves that put others in control of our fate (OPEC+ for instance) are a step in that direction and anti-American.
  3. I should have said "wintry" month instead of just cold. 2014, 2008, and 1982 all featured cold and snowstorms with deep snow OTG inn March. It's a shoulder season month but those 3 years it leaned more towards winter.
  4. Hasn't been a truly cold March since 2014 and before that Maybe 2009? Can almost bank on a "non-wintry" month any more. 1982 was true winter
  5. My office went down in flames on both accounts. This sure didn't act like a Nina around here. But as I posted before, a Modoki Nina is not nearly as favorable as the traditional version. And sadly, that is the trend expected from here on out..
  6. That locale must get quite a bit of help off of Superior to avg 160"
  7. I'm thinking a truly warm spring (MAM) is off the table. Fully expecting more shoulder season winter-ish stuff like we had for the NDJ period leading up to the arctic period.
  8. Back to back 46F and sunny days has halved Monday morning's snow pack. True winter was 3 week period for Mby. That's better than it was looking tbh. I could be fine with warmth in March.
  9. 39F in my grid, but already 42F. Besides during the arctic outbreak, this has been a theme all "cold season" around here.
  10. So, back to trash pattern. Oh well, was a nice 2 weeks. 98-99 analog did show up in the end.
  11. No prob. There's a ton of different settings baked into that site and tbh, I've had it for a couple years and just now getting more familiar with how to get exactly the best out of it.
  12. Airport showed snow for a few hours but nothing of sig here at my place in town. Grazed perhaps like back at Christmas.
  13. I think there was some increases in pump prices already happening before this cold wave impacted the southern refineries, but I don't get up every morning tracking such so I could be off on that. And if it's all due to the current TX situation that's fine too. But don't think big petro will let Keystone get killed without a financial tantrum of some sort which usually means we the consumer will bear the brunt of such debacles in the long run. They won't eat the cost to date if it's shut down, you and I will. even if it's slowly over time. That's just how things work in this era. Not sure who w
  14. Figured its at least partially a response to this admin's plan to kill the pipeline from Canada. No?
  15. My office: --System Snow Expected Sunday Evening into Monday Morning-- The system snow on Sunday night has been well advertise by our office and by the models themselves. We are still expecting a widespread 2-4 inches of snow. The low moves off to the west of the GRR forecast area, but we see a burst of warm air advection snow during the Sunday evening time frame. The best lift and deepest DGZ occur after sunset Sunday evening persisting into the overnight hours. The warm air advection burst is not long, maybe on the order of 6 hours, but that will be enough focused lift to produce the wi
  16. I live in town and prior to the storm sunny side of streets (north) had about 4" while the south sides were 6-7". Also open fields around town were down to 3-4" as well due to drifting etc. Storm dropped 10" but it was 20:1 and has settled quite a bit already. So post storm we had 14-17" for a day or so before it began to settle. Going to say we range 11-14" attm which is still a great ❄ pack for this region. Remember we were missed in every direction prior to 1/31. What's odd is anywhere the high-ratio stuff was plowed or piled seems to be "settle resistant" leading to the impression of an ev
  17. Can't tell how much of that might be lake stuff prior across SWMI but models don't seem too impressive for here. Euro/GEM are best and even they would be a couple of wet inches. Was hoping for a trend to stronger.
  18. 1.2" on the day here. Mostly mega-fluff this evening/night. Very sparkling tho and some light pillars were faint but noticeable too.
  19. "If the system comes in stronger then a winter storm watch may be needed" WPC seems to like the chance of that:
  20. Strange how I could see vid 1 but not vid 2 on my phone. I rarely can see when Peeps upload any vids. Was there a format diff?
  21. That's funny cuz this shows your area as the lowest in the Detroit metro region and nowhere near that depth.
  22. We radiated out nicely this morning at the airport. Coldest since 1/22/19. Prior to that goes back to Feb 2015! Almost topped this list too!
  23. Odd. This pm GRR was still bullish on snow across SWMI for Thursday. Huh??
  24. Let's hear it for Marshall! Not every day my little berg gets to steal the snow show, haha Combining both waves for the 15/16th I had 10.2" here in total. This is the biggest storm in just under 5 yrs when (ironically) Marshall also led the pack for this CWA with an 11.6" total. The 16" depth is just a bit shy of what we had post GHD-2 six years ago. Certainly has that 14 & 15 feel to it out there attm. Extremely high-end CAT-2 storm but with the existing base felt more like the 2nd half of a CAT-4 so it played like a much bigger story. What's odd is that I'm just "run of the mi
  25. Here you go.. https://www.nohrsc.noaa.gov/interactive/html/map.html?var=snowfall_24_h&snap=1&bgvar=dem&shdvar=shading&o9=1&o13=1
