The forecasters who cried wolf are calling for another snowstorm in the Northeast

Winter weary.. Weather changing. This weekend will be just fine, with clocks being set ahead and a taste of spring reportedly on the way.. What else could go wrong!? Winter is over, if you want it. OR.. not. For days now, the weather forums I frequent have been talking about an impressive and large storm coming around the middle of March. And just in time for that, models are now picking up a big event for next week.. However, we've recently been down this path. Just last week, forecasters were confident and scary by saying 20 inches or more of snow was set to fall on millions--so a grain of road salt may be in order watching this forecast evolve.

What models are showing, at this hour, is an impressive Nor'Easter like storm hitting the East Coast.
Other reputable weather forecasters don't believe it..
So weather is like politics now. Take a side..

The models are running cold--which means that opposed to spring like Southern air dominating the storm, there will be an onset of cold Arctic air to turn precipitation frozen. If it happens.

If any of this happens.

As mentioned, there were frightening days leading up to the big storm that never was last week--bread and milk sold out for no reason.

But the trouble is, even if a storm was set to strike it's like the forecaster who cried wolf!
The sky didn't fall last week. Neither did snow.
So people may be hit hard and they won't even have bread and milk to feast on..

We'll be watching this one since we are in the target area for blizzard like conditions.

STRANGER THINGS 2 looks incredible

The newest STRANGER THINGS 2 trailer hit on Friday the 13th .. amazing timing as always with the fine people at Netflix..

The excitement over this program is incredible. Not only are people re-watching and re-binging the first season in preparation, but there is an equal amount of re-watching and analyzing of the newest trailers..


Before discussion.. take a glance:



My initial thought: This is actually the weaker of the teasers and trailers for season 2.. Yes, I am inclined to wonder why Eleven is more androgynous  .. why she has more hair now and no one shaved it. why she is out of the upside down and eating Eggos in the normal world..

So many questions about her. But the trailer didn't pay much attention to her--I think on purpose. Instead we glimpsed into the post-pubescent boys and now new friends of another gender planning something, just as the world is being taken over by giant squid creatures from the upside down.

Not viewed at all? Mike's mom and dad. Barb..

Forgive me…

THE UNLUCK OF THE IRISH: TROPICAL STORM MAY HIT IRELAND!!

Yes, indeed.. a hurricane-ish type storm is about to hit Ireland..

Hurricane Ophelia is the 10th consecutive hurricane to form in the Atlantic basin this year. According to University of Miami hurricane expert Brian McNoldy, the last time ten consecutive storms became a hurricane was 1893. While a very interesting factoid, the "elephant in the room" is that Ophelia is headed to Ireland. It is rare, but not unprecedented.

There are a few interesting things about this.. First off, there have been really rare occasions that storms of this nature made it as far as Ophelia may..

Actually there have been only a handful in the past years since about, oh, 1851..

From 1851 to 2010, only 10 extratropical storms, typically the tail ends of tropical cyclones, have hit within 200 miles (322 kilometers) of Ireland....Hurricane Debbie was the only tropical hurricane to make landfall in that area, clipping the far northwest of the British Isles in 1961.

But this is 2017--the year that mayhem on …
