HectorO wrote:Good morning everyone! Thank you Frank for sending an email to check up on me. I really appreciate it. I will speak on here, so I don't have to type the same thing twice lol. The past two years have been pretty tough. Back in 2020, due to covid, a business that I worked really hard on had come to a halt. It was very depressing and tough to have to navigate in this new world. Prior to that, in December of 2019, my wife and I separated. So here I was dealing with a business falling and a separation. In May of 2020, my wife and I got back together. Everything seemed fine. But in 2021 we would separate again. This was crushing, as this time it would lead to divorce papers being signed.

At the end of 2021 I reached to an old friend, who like myself is an entrepreneur. He gave me the pep talk I needed. 1 year later from the second separation, my business is building back up, I've landed a good job while it builds up, and I have investors in my business to re-open completely by 2023. It's been a wild rollercoaster ride, but having GRIT has helped me get back on my feet. Sorry for the long rant btw. I just wanted to catch everyone up. And I'll be back on here!

With that said: I need to change my photo LOL



Welcome back Hector! Sorry about your troubles the past few years, but glad things are turning around for you. Best of luck with the business!

Nice to have HectorO back on here.

There are some users who I do miss from the old 7-online chat board and/or this forum's early days. One of them is Tom (NjWeatherguy). He hasn't been on since March 2018. I wonder what happened to him.

And Records are being smashed all over this beautiful God given planet for cold n snow adn it will continue for decades to come. Tonga Volcanoes was truly immense adn WILL cool our planet - it remains to be see by how much.
.3C low end estimates 1C upper end to 1.3 C most extreme.
They, scientist totally missed and underestimated but have since dropped this whole story but a few scientists I follow have not and are exposing the truth to this. Buckle up folks we haven't seen anything yet in more ways than one!!
VEI 5 eruption that went 180K feet (24 miles) and teh massive 13 kilometer debris field in 10 seconds traveled 35kilometers = 21 miles 144,500 feet. We seriously cannot wrap our heads around this.

Just checked the GFS temps for my area for the long range. I know cold is necessary for snow and all, but this sub zero crap is overkill.

Hey, throw on some Pixies albums, relax, and look out the window. While I am not waiting for snow like everyone else is, I still am watching (and listening to the Pixies as I always do when I decompress). For most this is all part of the fun Very Happy But you know that after all these years.

Welcome back, Hector!! Much like everybody else, I’m so sorry to hear of your struggles, but something I heard several years ago has resonated with me ever since, and I’m not an overly religious person:

“God never gives you more than you can handle.”

I can’t say that I understand what you went through, because I haven’t gone through it. But that thought has completely changed my outlook on life, and I hope it will for you too Smile it’s great to have you back now, though, and it’s only onwards and upwards from here! To uniformity, and beyond!!

I'm older but no wiser and am looking for advice. I was never a big fan of salting walkways because it always got tracked into the house and made a mess.
Now that I am older and not as sure footed, is it better to put down ice melt before the storm begins or after the shoveling is done? There is a thin glaze of ice now from persistent light snow this afternoon, so if i treat that now will it turn into a layer of ice on the bottom once the snow starts, or will it keep it from freezing? Help a brother out please Question

You know doc, that move to Florida has crossed my mind. Have family down there, son, 2 sisters. Was just talking to my sister the other day and she was telling me there are so many snowbirds down there now, what used to be a 5 minute drive to the grocery store now takes half an hour. I just can't commit to making the move just yet.

Greybeard, we are not getting any younger. Why not try it out first, rent a place for a month or two and keep the house up here.See how you like it.Next winter after I settle my Mom's estate (she passed at age 100 last August) and work out our treatment schedules (wife and I both in remission for cancer, hers is bladder, mine multiple myeloma, and this damn virus disappears, we would like to go for a month or two.When my Dad was alive, my parents had a small ranch in Boynton Beach in the Leisureville ( I called it seizureville) development.It was great in March, not hot yet, perfect temps in the 70's.My old arthritic bones can't take the cold and slipping on snow or ice could leave me up the creek without a paddle.

I arrived at the hotel earlier tonight and brought all the stuff into the hotel room, only to find out that the wi-fi in that room doesn't work really well. The guy at the front desk even admitted that. After discussing with him, he did allow me to go to a different room, where I tested the wifi beforehand and luckily it worked. But that involved getting all of my stuff from the room I was at beforehand to the room I switched to. So yea It's been hectic on check-in night. You would think in 2022 that this wouldn't be an issue, but alas, it is.

Anyway, I am currently in Milford, Massachusetts, about 40 southwest of Beantown. There is now accumulation on the pavement and it's picking up in intensity. I'm curious as to what it's like at daybreak!

Doc, so sorry about your Mom's passing. God blessed her allowing her such a long life. My parents, God rest their souls, spent their last years in Florida. Dad loved it, Mom hated it. They passed 13 days apart. It was the last time I was in Florida. Almost 3 years ago now.

Like you, the cold for me is harder to take as I get older. I used to have a small summer cabin up on Candlewood Lake in Ct. Had it for 20 yrs. Just sold it 3 yrs. ago because the kids grew up and it was more work than pleasure as I did all the maintenance myself. Would have been smart to keep that place for summer use and spend winters in Florida. Hindsight is 20/20 as they say. Maybe someday we can meet up and have a pina colada down there one day.

So happy for you and the wife both being in remission for cancer. You take that long overdue trip to Florida. Got a kick out of the seizureville reference lol. I'm sure you've heard Florida also being referred to as Gods waiting room, I get a laugh when I think about that one.

That would be the wise thing to do weatherwatchermom. My sister has even offered to put me up for an extended stay. I really should take her up on it. One thing that keeps me from doing so is my 8 yr. old labrador retriever, wouldn't want to board him for anything more than a week. I know you are a dog person too, so I'm sure you understand.
