I have never actually seen that movie... Is that bad?

Its a TV show. Some dudes wearing white tuxedoes making dreams come true and teaching people the value of goodness. Kinda like OTI in reverse.

I actually thought I was on OTI.

Everyone that has contributed the last two pages really should be given honorary citizenship. I believe they've all earned it.

I should add of course that half the people that have contributed the last two pages are citizens or ex-citizens, who am I speaking of, of OTI.. No surprises there.

Are we plotting on OTI to take over the banter thread? Is this some kind of covert action that I wasn't made aware of?

I'm not sure I approve but we do need more space so if someone did plan this kudos to them.

Does the island need a landscaper?

I will need approval from Parliament and Doc I believe is away today but I have no problem putting in the nomination right now future Director of landscaping.


I shall wait for the good news. Smile

I realize I did jump one step ahead there, and must adhere to OTI protocol.

I am putting your name before Parliament today for citizenship on OTI. Soon after that, after you have proven yourself as a loyal citizen of OTI we will put your name before Parliament, provided of course you are granted citizenship which seems a mere formality right now, to be the Director of Landscaping on OTI.

I only see one bump in the road for you Mikey, as far as becoming a citizen of OTI, and that is your wishes at various times for spring to come early. On OTI wishing for spring before May is very serious and a first offender receives two handfuls of sand in the face, eyes closed, and 10 lashes with palm tree leaves. Punishments of course are handed out by our Director of security SnowMan.

A second offender receives four handfuls of sand in the face eyes opened, and is then beheaded. Their citizenship is taken from them posthumously.

Understood but I am simply trying to follow the money. If it is going to be warm, I would like to get a head start on spring cleanups and mulch jobs before mowing season is here.

I understand, just don't ever mention things like that while you are on OTI, SnowMan has beaten people senseless for much less.

Ummm CP. A word to the wise (on the QT) You are threatening a potential cereal killer.

I see the weekend night temps are in the mid to high teens NW of the city. This is why I pay high taxes.  I want the change of seasons, and in winter I want the cold and snow. Just me and my wood stove.

It seems most of the posts here belong in either the OTI thread or the Spring Indices Phenology Map 2018 Thread. You'd never know it was for venting frustration over the overall weather pattern.

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”

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.

If the NWS says Atlanta received 4.5 inches in the March '93 Superstorm, then I guess ATLcantmeasuresnow, either! Ha ha! I was in Atlanta the day after the storm, it was more like 14.5 inches.

In March of 1993, I was going to FSU in Tallahassee, about 4-4.5 hrs due south of Atlanta. One unsuspecting Sunday morning we woke up (came to?) to see snow flakes falling from the sky. In the frenzied game of 'call everyone you know from the one land line in your apartment' that followed, one of my friends said Headline News was reporting a foot or more of snow in Atlanta.

We all grew up in South Florida. Some of us were born there and hadn't seen snow ever and the rest of hadn’t seen it since we were little and our parents fled ‘insert rust belt metropolis here’.  Someone suggested that we drive to Atlanta to see what a foot of snow is like. So, we did. We brought a football and enough money for gas and hot chocolate at the Waffle House. It took 9 hours. Once we got to within 100 miles of Atlanta, the Interstate looked like a post-apocalyptic movie- disabled cars every 50 feet.

We played football in the snow for about 20 min, sipped hot cocoa at the waffle house (OK, I may have ordered smothered and covered also) and then drove home. Hmmm, I guess that was 25 years ago today!

And, it was a foot of snow…fo’ sho’

I could certainly do the annoying part but I would have difficulty with the midget (is that politically correct to say) end of it. Perhaps if I was cut in half I might qualify.

Nothing to worry about, CP. Just walk around naked with your hands taped to your ankles, draw eyes on your backside and say that you're siamese twins with no arms where two bodies share one head.

Perhaps the term "vertically challenged" would be more appropriate.Personally, I prefer the more 1950's ish "Shorty"!Or you could take another 1950's ish tongue in cheek approach and call him "Stretch".

Call me Stretch. I may be the tallest on the board.

I hardly ever see long icicles hanging off the roof except in very bad winters with above average snow, and on-off melting. So it has been a while but these days I have some beauties. We go out the garage and avoid impalement. Nice to look at but they sure are dangerous.
