Thaws are pretty much par for the course around here this time of year anyways so I don't get too worked up about it.

Dec 16, 2007 we got blasted with snow only to have it completely wiped away a week later with rain and warm temps. Dec 19, 2008 another wallop and gone by next the weekend with a rain storm. The only December where there were no real thaws was 2013 and that simply does not happen here often as has been discussed to death.

I mention those three years as they were the only good December's in the past decade tongue.gif

ARRRRRRRRRRRRRGH Just as we get a nice snowfall, the RAP and FIM maps start acting up. The FIM temperature maps have only 3 out of 57 maps downloading, and fragments of a few others. sad.gif Changing DNS settings doesn't help. I did not do any computer updates yesterday.

Think it's more about when the thaw occurs...refer you to the Christmas Day thread. Not worried if we lose a bit of snow early, or mid December, but want it proper wintry fro Christmas Day smile.gif

Just an FYI that I'll be out until this afternoon but I should be back to recap the 12z Euro later today when I'm back at my desktop.

Talk to everyone then and hopefully someone else can cover the 12z GFS/CMC stuff.

Well-known Elvis Christmas song

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Uwfz5mMLSDM

Somebody should record it with different lyrics

I'll have a gre-e-e-e-n Christmas without you
I'll be so green just thinkin a-about you
Decorations of red on a green palm tree
Won't be the same dear, if you're not here with me
And when those green coconuts start fallin
That's when those green memories start callin
You'll be doin alright with your Christmas of White
But I'll have a green, green, green, green Christmas

...chorus or soliloquay goes here...

You'll be doin alright with your Christmas of White
But I'll have a green, green, green, green Christmas

I'm run ragged tracking storms and clearing snow but loving every second of it and I'm more than eager for a chance to take Godzilla's other eye after having handily carved out the first one laugh.gif

Revenge tastes sweet as pie.

No real complaints but we can still banter. Days are getting longer now and we've already gained 5 minutes in the evening's smile.gif

A couple of weeks and we will finally break out of these pre-5pm sunsets. Rejoice!

I guess call this a half-complaint but I don't like the pressure this is putting on my eavestroughs as it gradually slides down in this milder pattern:

I've been trying to clear it away to keep anyone from having a chunk dislodge and crack them on the noggin. So far so good.

Hope you have a great time at the movie tonight BTW, let me know what you think while avoiding spoilers of course! biggrin.gif

Time to post here. Not liking the look of things for the next two weeks on the GFS...feels like every storm, including the one now affecting us, is too far West. Of course this was always the risk, but it's getting old now, I want to track a proper snow storm rather than something that turns everything to mush.

The unfortunate news is that other than the incoming cold shot it looks more-or-less like back to status quo into mid-month. Continued chances but definitely continued risk too.

To add some more banter to this thread, we have gained nearly 15 minutes of daylight in the evenings now. Not really noticeable on nights like this but still, something to keep us going during the down periods.

Just think; the days of +9pm sunsets are on their way back ever so slowly...

The clock is running down for me. A cold end to Feb and a cold March are no use when I am in Hawaii and New Zealand smile.gif

As for 9pm sunsets, more like 9.45 where I will be living this summer, except there will be no crickets.
