I hate breaking up the funny banter but I have a serious question and was unsure where to post it.  I just received this alert and I am confused as to why they say "Action Recommended: Avoid the subject event as per the instructions".  I find it funny and odd at the same time.


Anyone know why all my alerts say this?


Until 1:00am EDT, Wed Mar 14

Action Recommended: Avoid the subject event as per the instructions
Issued by: New York City - NY, US, National Weather Service,
*** ICING TONIGHT AS TEMPERATURES FALL BELOW FREEZING *** TEMPERATURES WILL FALL BELOW FREEZING OVERNIGHT RESULTING IN FREEZING OF WET SNOW, SLUSH AND STANDING WATER FROM TODAY'S SNOW.

I got the same alert. Unnecessary to be honest. The sun came out here in Manhattan, drying up much of the pavement. Plus, snow is virtually nonexistent here.

Anyway, let's say the potential snow system for next ends up hitting the northern suburbs of NYC while screwing over NYC itself (As you know the past three systems did indeed screw over NYC). If work flexibility allows for it, I would consider taking a Metro North train to go to one of the places that would get snow.



Since I work very close to Grand Central, I would look at Wassaic, Danbury, or Waterbury, since CP mentioned earlier that being by the river is not the best idea to look for snow.   The lines west of Hudson leave from Penn Station and go through NJ, which I'm not sure about.

Looking back, I really should have done it with one of the past three systems...

Thanks for answering Math, it's much appreciated. It's still wet here so the alert may be useful in my neck of the woods. I am just confused that they all say, "Avoid the subject". It sounded like my marriage. Laughing

Taffy, it is so nice of you to ask questions. And you are funny. A most totally excellent combination.

CP, what snow total did you have a few Fridays ago? I got nothing. My goal is to take your total for that day and subtract it from your totals in your signature area so I can guesstimate what I got for the season so far. I am progressing. In fact, I will start recording my snowfall totals from this day forward. Thank you for helping an upcounty guy out.

25 years ago today we had a superstorm of 93 . I don't remember that much because I was 10 years old. On the morning of the superstorm snow has already started it was late at first but as the morning or not it was coming down really hard and fast and the wind was picking up to. As we got into mid to late afternoon the snow has changed over to a heavy wind-driven sleet storm and it lasted for couple hours finally by night time the sleet has changed over to back to snow we ended up with a foot of snow and a couple inches of sleet if that was a all snow event we will be talking about feet of snow I think saracuse ny ended up with 48 inches of snow

I remember it well. It went overnight into my birthday on the 14th. I believe it was a Sunday. The snow started about 11 an and by 1 I had 5” in Bellerose near where Math grew up. It then went over to a driving sleet storm and finally back to snow. I got 13” snow then 3-5” of sleet and then 3-4” of snow on the back end. My parents upstate house in Olivebridge Ulster County NY got 37”. Syracuse 11” and I believe Atlanta Georgia 13”

Damian: I'l copy over the spreadsheet I keep in Excel for this years totals. I record every tenth of an inch so there may be minor events you missed. It's a straight copy and paste so the format won't be pretty but you should be able to read it.

You could live north of the city, but would you like that commute?

Syracuse 11" in the storm of 93??????????????

Try like 43"

Atlanta officially received 4.5 inches, Birmingham Alabama received 13 inches.

Red Sox Suck less than 12, Central Park only 10.6 which doesn't even rank it among NYC's 50 greatest snowfalls, WDC 6.6.

Big Cities in NE were spared because of the track of the storm, pretty much right over the coastline.

Oh CP poor old CP. listen. Love ya and all but this argument you made about Syosset and the N shore of Long Island NOT being the snow capital of NJstrongweather is silly. Cmon. Here are some facts.
Since I joined the form and completely changed the snow power balance of the boards here are some numbers.

Based on your own snowfall reports located under your avatar. You have averaged 58.1” snowfall the past five years. The nearest reporting station to you of Middletown NY averages 48” per season. Therefore you have averaged 122% of what’s expected to fall in your location. This is actually impressive. However........

My last five years here on the coast I have averaged 44.2”. Normal average snowfall on Long Island ranges from as low as 22” to as high as 31”. Now being the gentleman that I am I took a high avg. of 30”. This means I have averaged 155% of what is expected to fall at my location. Numbers don’t lie good sir but you do. Please just accept the fact that yes you’ve had a good run, but since I’ve joined my man THERES A NEW SHERRIF IN TOWN. HIS NAME IS JAMES. AND HE HOES BY THE NICKNAME IF Syosnow.  rollseyes  hurryup  takenback  if

Now wait a minute, Syo, this invokes an interesting philosophical question. If a weightlifter weighs 200 pounds and benches 400, that's a 2:1 ratio. However, a different lifter weighs 360 and benches 720. Same ratio, but which is stronger? Most people would argue the one that weighs 360 because he moves more weight. Simple. However, people who train would acknowledge that the 200-class lifter is just as impressive. It's all about perspective. Do you value pure volume and the ability to bench 720, or, the struggle of the 200-pounder to be able to bench as much as 400? My opinion? If you put the two against each other, the 360-class would destroy the 200-class in any lift or physical competition one-on-one. Ergo, CP is still the king of NJ Strong (shared with my parents lol)

Okay, but what if one lifter is on the Juice and the other is all natural.  Does that make a difference in your final opinion.  Now for the important question, how can I get some juice for my weather pattern so I get triple my expected snow totals?  Will it shrink my rain amounts during the summer? Did Syo illegal juice up his snow pattern. Is there a 3 day suspension as in baseball if proven guilty?

Ok here’s one for ya:

There is a train coming, you are at a switch that can send it down one of two tracks. In the first track, Frank is tied up and laid over the tracks. On the second track is RB, CP, Mugs, Syosnow, and a Jman... which track do you send the train down?
