Personal Statement
I have been an avid buff since the Blizzard of 1969 dumped 25 inches of snow on us near Binghamton, NY. I was 8 years of age at the time, and my interest in weather has not abated since!

100 Funnel of Love-Cyndi Lauper AMER
Actually from late 2016, this rollicking tune was a cover of an old country song and a lot of fun to listen to.
99 Dirty Laundry-Carrie Underwood C&W
A carryover from late 2016, this had a good classic rock feel to it. No, it is not a cover of the 1982 Don Henley classic.
98 Help in Hard Times-Carrie Newcomer
a sincere folk tune that went well with winter
97 Dusty Old Man-Tift Merritt
A melodic Americana song with an autumnal sound
96 Thick of It-Mary J. Blige
an old school R&B number with a strong hook
95 Better Man-Little Big Town
an emotive country song with a wintry feel—it reached no. 1 on Billboard’s country chart.
94 Here Come the Girls-Trombone Shorty
a jaunty cover of an old 1960s Memphis jam
93 Good and Gone-Patty Griffin
A haunting song and one of many from this folk singer’s 2015 album that made my chart
92 Gravity-Infamous Stringdusters
a melodic bluegrass tune that was popular last winter/spring
91 House of Mercy-Sarah Jarosz
a haunting, melodic song from her 2016 album with a fall/winter sound
90 Don't Weep for Me-Blue Highway
An engaging bluegrass tune with a strong banjo hook and a story about a guy who had committed a crime of passion
89 It’s Not Right-Jenny Jarnagan
A carryover from late 2016, this adult alternative song of self-affirmation was a big hit on my chart.
88 Humbled-Leann Rimes
a country-rock ballad with a strong hook
87 See You on the Way Down-Renee Wahl AMER
a tune with a strong hook, this should have been a hit.
86 Surrender Under Protest-Drive-By Truckers AMER
An alt-country song with a strong hook and an ominous, late-autumn sound
85 Astral Plane-Valerie June
a folk-sounding ballad with a melodic hook and a late winter sound

A fun tune with a summery, classic rock sound

82 Water under the Bridge-Adele
The fourth single from her Grammy-winning 2015 album, this had a strong hook.
81 Atlas Choking-Richard Shindell AMER
A sardonic folk tune with a strong hook and an autumnal feel—a carryover from late 2016
80 I’ll Think about You-We Are Messengers
a slow piano ballad from the movie The Shack
79 A Place in Your Heart-Ray Davies
The lead singer of the Kinks had a melodic country-rock ballad
78 My Mind Is for Sale-Jack Johnson
a rare serious song from Johnson, this had a strong hook and a cool sound.
77 Waiting for the Thunder-Blackberry Smoke
A rocking, smoking, 1970s sound, this had apocalyptic lyrics and a summery sound musically.
76 Losing You-Alison Krauss
A cover of a 1963 Brenda Lee ballad, this had a strong hook.

I know a lot of us are big snow fans--including yours truly. However, I am not a big fan of prolonged cold weather--as we are in the early stages of as I write this. As a result, I have decided to begin the Spring 2018 thread because I know that several people in the forums do enjoy warm weather.

HOW TO WAIT FOR SPRING

12-11 The number of days until the vernal equinox reached double digits.
12-20 The time until the equinox fell to three months
12-22 The amount of daylight per day began to lengthen
12-23 The number of days till April (and Easter) fell to double digits
12-28 Only nine weeks until March 1, or meteorological spring
12-30 Three months until the beginning of Passover
1-1 March is the month after next; April and Easter are only 3 months away
1-3 Only six weeks before Lent begins (Ash Wednesday)
1-4 Only six weeks until spring training for major league baseball; eight weeks to March
1-6 For us Irish, only 10 weeks to St. Patrick’s Day
1-10 Five weeks to Lent
1-11 Seven weeks to March
1-15 The beginning of April now as close as the end of October.
1-16 For baseball fans, spring training is about a month away.
1-17 Four weeks to Lent
1-18 Six weeks to March
1-21 10 weeks to April/Easter
1-24 Three weeks to Lent
1-25 Five weeks to March
1-28 Nine weeks to April/Easter
1-30 Two months to Passover
1-31 Two weeks to Lent
2-1 March is next month; two months to April
2-4 Eight weeks to April/Easter
2-5 Solar spring begins
2-7 One week to Lent
2-8 Three weeks to March
2-11 Seven weeks to April/Easter
2-14 It is Ash Wednesday—a sure sign of late winter.
2-15 March is in two weeks; April is now closer than December.
2-18 Six weeks to April/Easter
3-20 One month till vernal equinox
2-22 One week to March
2-25 April/Easter in five weeks
3-1 St. Patrick’s Day, the vernal equinox, and Passover are all later this month
3-2 May is now closer than December; April is closer than January
3-6 May is only eight weeks away; vernal equinox is two weeks from now.
3-11 Three weeks to April/Easter
3-13 One week to the equinox
3-16 April as close as February.
3-17 Top of the morning to you; May now as close as the end of January
3-20 The vernal equinox; May only six weeks away
3-23 Passover only one week away
3-25 April/Easter one week away
4-1 May is next month.

If spring weather is running late, I will have to add to this.

Well, this one is only 10 days away, and I hope that by opening this thread, I don't end up sending it cutting through the lakes. I'll keep my fingers crossed for a snowstorm with this one!
25 Jun 2017
I decided to open a thread on this--my only regret is that it will only last four days. We have a chance at record lows both Tuesday (48 degrees) and Wednesday (47 degrees). We have had at least one daily record temperature each month this year--but none so far this month.

I have been keeping a song chart of personal favorites for nearly 42 years (since I was 13). I wanted to rank various songs I liked but were not big hits. Very few of these songs have a snowball's chance of making the Billboard Hot 100. This part 1, covering songs 100 to 76. A lot of these were carryovers from 2015 (and songs from late 2016/early 2017) because I did not listen to too many new songs during the first few months of 2016.

100 FLIPSIDE-NORAH JONES
a well-done retro-jazz-sounding tune with socially conscious lyrics
99 CAROLINA IN MY MIND (LIVE)-GREG NEFF
A local talent, this song charted because I heard him perform this James Taylor classic several times
98 DIAMONDS IN THE DUST-STEEP CANYON RANGERS
With superb banjo work, this was one of several songs from their 2015 Radio CD that charted in 2016.
97 TOO LATE-VAN MORRISON
With a classic Morrison sound, this sounded like his early-'70s FM rock heyday.
96 (FOLLOW YOUR HEART) (LIVE ON ETOWN)-KATIE HERZOG
a roots-rock sound—heard on the NPR live show one Saturday in June
95 GONE BEFORE YOU MET ME-ALAN JACKSON
A track from his 2015 Angels and Alcohol CD, this had an upbeat feel.
94 SING IT LOUDER-GARY BARLOW
A socially conscious folk tune that had good lyrics but musically was a bit too maudlin
93 BETTER MAN-LITTLE BIG TOWN C&W
A mature, sincere, winter-sounding country ballad that was, surprisingly, penned by plastic pop star Taylor Swift
92 EVERYTHING'S CHANGED-PATTY GRIFFIN
A mesmerizing folk strummer
91 BAD PEOPLE (LIVE ON ETOWN)-ANNA AND ELIZABETH
This roots-rock tune had a strong hook and was heard in a September show
90 CALIFORNIA-ROBERT ELLIS
A jazz-tinged ballad that had an early summer sound
89 HALLELUJAH-PENTATONIX AC
Their cover of the Leonard Cohen classic was released shortly before Cohen passed away.
88 LOVE IN THE DARK-ADELE
A melancholy ballad an an album cut from 25
87 NO-MEGHAN TRAINOR
A fairly catchy tune that was the first single from her sophomore album
86 I WON’T GO BACK-STEVE MARTIN/EDIE BRICKELL
An Americana song I first heard in late 2015
85 SEE YOU ON THE WAY DOWN-RENEE WAHL
A tune with a strong hook and an autumnal feel
84 ALL MY PEOPLE-KINDRED AND THE FAMILY SOUL
A soulful recording with a retro, 1970s sound
83 JOANNE-LADY GAGA
An acoustic ballad that nevertheless has a worldly-wise sound
82 THE THREE OF ME-WILLIAM BELL
A soulful tune that had a late-1960s R&B sound
81 WHEN GOD PAINTS-ALAN JACKSON C&W
A country ballad that would have been a big hit in his 1990s heyday
80 (WALK THROUGH WALLS) (LIVE ON ETOWN)-KATIE HERZOG
A tune with a soulful delivery and a melodic hook
79 RIDE THE TRAIN-THE Q-BACKS
A bouncy song with a 1950s rock vibe
78 WRECK YOU-LORI MCKENNA
A country-blues ballad with a Sunday night, autumnal sound—the lyrics were about codependency and a dysfunctional relationship.
77 WHEN YOU'RE GONE-AMANDA SHIRE
An Americana song with a strong hook
76 CAN’T WAIT ANY LONGER-JILL SCOTT
A soulful, old-school R&B sound
