...SEVERE WINTER WEATHER IS INCREASINGLY LIKELY FROM FEBRUARY 12TH THROUGH THE END OF MARCH...

* LOCATIONS....NYC and all of LI, The lower HV of NY, Northern Half of NJ and CT

* TIMING...February 12 through March 31.

* IMPACTS...NUMEROUS SNOW STORMS, HIGH WINDS, BELOW NORMAL TEMPERATURES

PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...

Updated reports from Orange Regional Medical Center in Middletown are encouraging regarding the full recovery of the ground hog Orange Othelia. Should she recover fully, as is now expected, the tri state area can expect a return of wintry weather and below normal temperatures for the period from February 12th through the end of March.

People in these areas should begin preparing for severe winter weather. Further updates will be issued should Othelias condition continue to improve.

Excellent post. I’m pleased Uptown made the call to cut back on so called science and used proper guidance methods. If only. If only. Back in 1888 it was rumored that if Chartwell the Chipmunk, of Blue Ball, Pennsylvania legend, saw his own nuts at moonrise, than a massive blizzard was imminent. It was ignored, and needless to say, history tragically speaks for itself. The old timers used to recite by the campfire tales of competitive predictions by Chartwell and his best friend Phil. The duo split up after Phil was caught stealing forecasts and hurridly skipped town to Punxsutawney.

Excellent story. Phil's a fraud as I've always suspected, and as your story clearly shows.

As I understand now, the forecast for the week of the 10th calls for slop for most of us.  I've been doing some research on the fascinating and highly accurate science of nonsense forecasting, introduced by the the likes of Nostradamus and followed by such highly esteemed practitioners as Chartwell the Chipmunk and Staten Island Chuck (Phil has been exposed as an unwanted charlatan). Seems like the United States of America has a rich, but hidden, body of research, practiced and espoused upon by the Dead Presidents.  I recently visited Dey Mansion in NJ and came upon some intriguing documents.  As many people are aware, General Washington resided in the mansion for a time. Needless to say, history, as written in the books, is completely incorrect.  Washington, along with a genius who resided on the Island of Long, was still alive in the early 1800's and literally conversed with "The Bearded Baby 16 from Kentucky" in 1810 over tasty bourbon. Fascinating.  In short, they both expressed concern over the "Warmicist inspired trends of the twenty first century, year nineteen, on the Coast of the East" but were confident that "massive Zillas of Frank were imminent in the month of "3"".  Time will tell, but confidence is high for some good upcoming winter weather.  

Ophelia, my thoughts and prayers are dedicated to your health and well being.

...REST OF THE WINTER-WEATHER ADVISORY IN EFFECT FROM 12 AM TUESDAY TO
MIDNIGHT EST SUNDAY NIGHT MARCH 31...

* WHY.... After studying in detail lines 7525 through 7564 of the Tale of Orange Ophelia we have decided to issue a rest of the winter weather advisory for the entire forecast area.

Although some uncertainty remains regarding several ambiguous lines of the epic poem, we are confident that Othelia will fully recover and the forecast for a difficult, prolonged period of winter weather will prevail.

* TIMING...This is where the 40 lines we are currently studying become ambivalent. The lines "A voice from North Jersey will return from Spain, his return will mark the beginning of wintry pain" followed by "After February 12 the north wind will blow, and something will go wrong with the MJO".

We believe the man from North Jersey referred to in the poem returns February 12 but after that the reference to AFTER February 12 the north wind will blow and the reference to a change in the MJO seem contradictory. Will this period of harsh winter weather begin on February 12 or afterward? For this reason we have included February 12 and the 7 week period afterward in the warning time frame.

* WHAT...Mixed precipitation expected throughout the area with most of the precipitation falling as snow.

Also included in the poem are the lines "As the month we call March comes to an end, and the snow for the season reaches 110". We cannot discern the authors precise meaning here. Is the 110 reference for the period after February 12 through March 31, or include any snow that has fallen to this date? Also unclear is what area beyond Orange County this includes. These ambiguities prevent us from precise accumulation totals. For now we are going with a general total snow accumulation through the end of March of 50 to 100 inches. The higher amounts N&W of NYC and lower amounts near the coast. Winds will gust gust as high as 55 mph in some storms throughout this period.

In further discussions we will discuss additional references in the poem regarding the AO, NAO, EPO and PNA. We are still trying to determine whom the other individuals referenced are notably, RB, the vet from LI, the man from North Jersey and the discerning voice from the Island that is long, to see if they can add further insights into their part in this mid 1700's prognostication. At the end of this discussion will we post the 40 lines of the tale of Orange Ophelia that we are currently basing our predictions on, with bold highlights of the lines used in our current discussion.

* WHERE....The entire NYC and Tri state area

* WHEN...From 12 AM Tuesday to midnight EST Sunday night, March 31

* ADDITIONAL DETAILS...Plan on slippery road conditions and impassable roads at
 times during heavier snow. The hazardous conditions could impact any of the
 morning and evening commutes through the time period. Precipitation will most
 likely be in the form of snow through most of the period.

PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...

A Rest of the Winter Weather Advisory means that periods of snow, sleet or freezing rain will cause travel difficulties. Expect slippery roads and limited visibilities, and use caution while driving. Stock up on eggs and milk because these staples hold up so well when areas lose power and they cannot be refrigerated.

Check local Department of Transportation information services for
the latest road conditions.

The Tale of Orange County Othelia- Lines 7525 thru 7564

During the reign of Othelia number 67
A sudden illness will almost send her to heaven
She will see her shadow and then grow quite ill
The culprit will be a small white pill
While she fights for her life the weather will be tame
Communications at that time will be looking for blame
A man will appear from the Island quite long
His views on the winter exceedingly strong
Winter is over, he will proclaim to the masses

All who say otherwise are just dumb asses
Some will believe him, but others not so
Another from the Island will say negative AO
It’s not over yet, this animal doctor will say
Othelia will live to see another day
And as for the winter it’s not over yet
At least not according to this Island vet

The weather is now mild but if Othelia survives
Keeping warm after this will require animal hides
A voice from North Jersey will return from Spain
His return will mark the beginning of wintry pain
After February 12 the north wind will blow
And something will go wrong with the MJO

It will stick in a phase that will keep it quite cold
Punishing the young, the middle, and old
Other letters will go to phases that bring us deep snow
Including the elusive negative NAO
Other letters will be mentioned and they all spell doom
Talk of PNA, and EPO will fill every room
As March approaches, the snows will not stop
The depth will approach the lower roof top
Through the middle of March, the cold winds still blow
A man called RB will say I told you so

The change may be late but I said it was coming
Though I had to endure the naysayers drumming
As the month we call March comes to an end
And the snow for the season reaches 110

The man from North Jersey will declare from the mount
Any snow that falls in March just doesn’t count
As we go into April winter finally ends
But this prediction on Othelias survival depends

You are too kind Doc. I think if we go back to the OTI thread there are dozens of posts by numerous members, most notably yourself, of the OTI crew that top this.

I do miss the old Island but I do have January 1, 2079 circled on my calendar. I'm hoping 118 years old will be considered middle age by then when we can reclaim the homeland.

The Tale of Orange County Othelia- Lines 7525 thru 7564

During the reign of Othelia number 67
A sudden illness will almost send her to heaven
She will see her shadow and then grow quite ill
The culprit will be a small white pill
While she fights for her life the weather will be tame
Communications at that time will be looking for blame
A man will appear from the Island quite long
His views on the winter exceedingly strong
Winter is over, he will proclaim to the masses

All who say otherwise are just dumb asses
Some will believe him, but others not so
Another from the Island will say negative AO
It’s not over yet, this animal doctor will say
Othelia will live to see another day
And as for the winter it’s not over yet
At least not according to this Island vet

The weather is now mild but if Othelia survives
Keeping warm after this will require animal hides
A voice from North Jersey will return from Spain
His return will mark the beginning of wintry pain
After February 12 the north wind will blow
And something will go wrong with the MJO

It will stick in a phase that will keep it quite cold
Punishing the young, the middle, and old
Other letters will go to phases that bring us deep snow
Including the elusive negative NAO
Other letters will be mentioned and they all spell doom
Talk of PNA, and EPO will fill every room
As March approaches, the snows will not stop
The depth will approach the lower roof top
Through the middle of March, the cold winds still blow
A man called RB will say I told you so

The change may be late but I said it was coming
Though I had to endure the naysayers drumming
As the month we call March comes to an end
And the snow for the season reaches 110

The man from North Jersey will declare from the mount
Any snow that falls in March just doesn’t count
As we go into April winter finally ends
But this prediction on Othelias survival depends


lol! lol! lol! lol! lol! lol!

Pure genius and the funniest post that was ever on NJ Strong

You are too kind Doc. I think if we go back to the OTI thread there are dozens of posts by numerous members, most notably yourself, of the OTI crew that top this.

I do miss the old Island but I do have January 1, 2079 circled on my calendar. I'm hoping 118 years old will be considered middle age by then when we can reclaim the homeland.

I'll be waiting for you there at 133 years of age.I might just be a pile of dust resembling salt, like Lot's wife, but I will be holding a sigbn saying "Welcome back Director of the Treasury"!

Damian, OTI was nuked by our Former Assistant Director of The OTI Sanitarium and Director of the Coconut Lounge Syosnow, who descended into terminal melancholia and neurosis as a result of too much Hopium ingested looking at long range models that failed to produce.Right now, you need a lead suit to visit, but as CP noted we are scheduled for re-opening in 2079, so you are very welcome at that time to visit.Drop me a line in 2079.

Hadn’t really considered it but I guess I could still be alive at OTI’s re-opening. Barely. But it’s possible. With my diet though I expect to fall about 35 years short of that.

818 AM EST Mon Feb 11 2019

...REST OF THE WINTER-WEATHER ADVISORY IN EFFECT FROM 12 AM TUESDAY TO
MIDNIGHT EST SUNDAY NIGHT MARCH 31...

* WHY.... After studying in detail lines 7525 through 7564 of the Tale of Orange Ophelia we have decided to issue a rest of the winter weather advisory for the entire forecast area.

Although some uncertainty remains regarding several ambiguous lines of the epic poem, we are confident that Othelia will fully recover and the forecast for a difficult, prolonged period of winter weather will prevail.

* TIMING...This is where the 40 lines we are currently studying become ambivalent. The lines "A voice from North Jersey will return from Spain, his return will mark the beginning of wintry pain" followed by "After February 12 the north wind will blow, and something will go wrong with the MJO".

We believe the man from North Jersey referred to in the poem returns February 12 but after that the reference to AFTER February 12 the north wind will blow and the reference to a change in the MJO seem contradictory. Will this period of harsh winter weather begin on February 12 or afterward? For this reason we have included February 12 and the 7 week period afterward in the warning time frame.

* WHAT...Mixed precipitation expected throughout the area with most of the precipitation falling as snow.

Also included in the poem are the lines "As the month we call March comes to an end, and the snow for the season reaches 110". We cannot discern the authors precise meaning here. Is the 110 reference for the period after February 12 through March 31, or include any snow that has fallen to this date? Also unclear is what area beyond Orange County this includes. These ambiguities prevent us from precise accumulation totals. For now we are going with a general total snow accumulation through the end of March of 50 to 100 inches. The higher amounts N&W of NYC and lower amounts near the coast. Winds will gust gust as high as 55 mph in some storms throughout this period.

In further discussions we will discuss additional references in the poem regarding the AO, NAO, EPO and PNA. We are still trying to determine whom the other individuals referenced are notably, RB, the vet from LI, the man from North Jersey and the discerning voice from the Island that is long, to see if they can add further insights into their part in this mid 1700's prognostication. At the end of this discussion will we post the 40 lines of the tale of Orange Ophelia that we are currently basing our predictions on, with bold highlights of the lines used in our current discussion.

* WHERE....The entire NYC and Tri state area

* WHEN...From 12 AM Tuesday to midnight EST Sunday night, March 31

* ADDITIONAL DETAILS...Plan on slippery road conditions and impassable roads at
 times during heavier snow. The hazardous conditions could impact any of the
 morning and evening commutes through the time period. Precipitation will most
 likely be in the form of snow through most of the period.

PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...

A Rest of the Winter Weather Advisory means that periods of snow, sleet or
freezing rain will cause travel difficulties. Expect slippery roads and limited visibilities, and use caution while driving. Stock up on eggs and milk because these staples hold up so well when areas lose power and they cannot be refrigerated.

Doc, I beg to differ. CP is not being funny. He is dead on serious and dead on accurate! Look how we are now poised for moderate snow in the next 10 days. Watch that explode. Man is a visionary! If only he could be cloned.

I agree 100%.CP is single handedly turning this winter around.Already 3 inches in the book since his effort began!
Agree on the cloning! Give me 100 CP's and I'll take over the world!

This winter really needed the services of OTI. All the melancholy around here makes me want to break into a song of hope and optimism. Something like, this:

Fairytales can come true, Othelia could give us a clue,
But keep OTI, in your heart,
Don't you know, OTI's worth, every treasure on earth
If it remains, in your heart;
And if I, shall survive, to 105, (literally)
Think of all I'll derive, from the reopened OTIIIIII,
That is the best part,
You'll have a head-start,
If, you persist, to keep, OTI, in your heart.

This is hilarious ahaha CP, you are quite the lyricist! Well done!!

Unfortunately, though, and unlike last year, I will not be able to say “I told you so”.
I threw in the towel a while ago.
However, those you saying OTI is dead, may need some new eyeballs to put into your head.
For myself, not once a member of that illustrious crew, it seems quite clear, the thread is renewed.
With all of the chatter from heretofore, its supposed “nuking” can be referenced no more.
For in our hearts, minds and spirits, as is easily read, the Coconut Island is still healthy and not dead.
May it continue to live on, forever and ever, so in winters like this, we can refrain from being too bitter.
It will make us laugh so we forget our plight, for winters like these, can leave quite the bite.
I will leave with these words, as I’ve spoken so often, thank god for NJ Strong, my extended family, who resides south of B0ston.
For they keep me sane each day that goes by, by always listeningto what I think, will fall from the sky.

Jan 1, 2079 was an estimated re-opening date. Perhaps we can speed up the clean up.

From the amazing creativity of poetry I am reading above with OTI as the inspiration, I have managed to locate a crack team of Radiation Remediation Specialists who assure me OTI will be ready 60 years ahead of schedule on October 1st 2019.We will put to an end the old expression 'old Islands never die they just fade away".Here is the crack team in action .

Hospital Update on Orange Othelia:

Orange Countys groundhog Othelia was released from Orange Regional Medical Center in Middletown today. The doctors gave her a clean bill of health which means her prediction from February 2nd stands. To confuse matters Othelia held up a sign before she took off for the surrounding woodlands. I'm not sure what she was trying to say. Was she saying she lied about the coming severity of the next several weeks and it will be worse than even predicted, or she just lied about the whole thing? Possibly it was just an F U to her failed assassin. I guess we find out in the next several weeks.

Rest assured the Orange County government crack staff is combing through the 10,000 line poem as we speak, searching for additional clues.
