Time to temper your expectations for a Feb 2019 and settle for a Feb 2018.

I am hurting tonight.

I bet, hopefully it’s temporary.

Me too, thanks, a little worried because of nerves tingling in my feet tonight. 3.5 years post surgery, don’t wanna reverse that at all.

D**n that sucks, definitely hope its short term.  I have battled back issues myself, I have managed to make some changes to at least delay what I figure is the inevitable (surgery).

We'll see. Pretty tough to reach 40's here this time of year without some westerly flow and that doesn't look to be in the cards for a while. With NW flow in charge little clipper systems can sneak up on us as well. 

I'll take a picture of what our "garden" looks like tomorrow. It's literally buried under about 4ft of drifted snow and you can't see any of our four garden boxes or our well. It's gonna be a while.😂

Thanks man, I had to have surgery, what I had going on was crippling, best decision ever.  But today brings back some bad memories.

Highly active with sports in high school, Pole Vaulting especially, but didn't realize problems until years after and hurt myself on the job, it came and went for many years before I started to lose feeling in my legs a few months before surgery in 2018.  I graduated HS in 1996.  It was inevitable according to my doctors.

EPS weeklies only strengthen the WPAC signal with time. Note the eastward propagation next month.

Ugly situation for the SW US.

Jeez man I had no idea. I hope you're not having many issues now. It's almost like being physically active and doing sports isn't as fun as it sounds considering it led to many injuries for me too.

Sad that Timmy in KY is going to miss this snowstorm.      

Phil - you could travel west this time!    No ocean to screw up the snow.  😀

GFS thinks we may have another week long dry stretch down here. Pray for Joshua.

I wish it was only a week. More like an indefinite one. If the GFS verifies, we will have gone 40 days in winter with about 1” of rain. Only one day with more than .15”. Hard to even fathom, yet I am confident it will happen. There are zero indications of a pattern change back to wet. Like I joked about before, maybe our summer pattern started in January this year. It started in March last year, so why not?
