This is irresponsible of me, but per this particular computer model GFS SAMPLED POINTS (it will refresh itself with new data at around 7AM 01/04/08), things may be getting rather wintry around here mid-late January. And with what this specific computer model is showing, perhaps even icy and some sleet mixed in.

Just giving you a very very very VERY (did I say very?) early heads up -- so please don't load up on groceries just yet. However, I'll keep my eyes on it as it gets closer.

Other model runs have showed brutal cold heading this way that I dare not mention the extent of, but nonetheless we may finally see a bump in this dry spell.

Thanx for the heads up Anthony! (I'm sure rd will be excited and looking forward to it! ) Now I'm really glad that we got the kids some Ugg boots and warm(ish) clothes for Christmas. But I'll have to keep an eye on that, maybe we shoulda got rain boots???

Oh hey, how was your vacation?

I guess maybe it is time to put the top and doors back on the Jeep!

Thanks for the web site, I sent it out to my office mates as I am not sure if we have a plan for what to do in case we get weather like we did last January. This might prompt them to brush off that plan and make sure we know what to do (which in most cases is stay home!).

Cheers! M2

I hope that forecast for the 19th and 20th is right. I also hope the forecast of around 80 for this Sunday is wrong. Bring on the snow, rain, ice, sleet, and nice freezing cold winds

heh, did you notice that somebody said in one of the other threads that they'd like to move to SA, but "dang it gets cold there!"? I giggled and thought, "yeah, tell that to rd!"

Default cartoons from the past

Last night at dinner, my husband and kids were discussing cartoons that we watched in the 70's. I brought up the subject because there is a channel called Noggin that is 24hrs and showing all the old Nick Jr. shows that my son used to watch when he was a toddler.

Was not sure where to bring this subject to, so I thought this would be the perfect thread.

Some of the cartoons we watched were:
Captain Caveman
Scooby-Doo
Rocky & Bullwinkle
Jetsons
Flintstones
Bugs Bunny
The Hair Bear Bunch
Speed Buggy
Magilla Gorilla

Some of the ones on Nick Jr.
Blue's Clues with Steve as host
Eureka's Castle
Little Bear
Oswald
David the Gnome
Busy World of Richard Scarry

Do you remember:
The New Zoo Revue
Picture Pages
Schoolhouse Rock
The Electric Company

Any others???

No problem, just make sure you don't take everything that this particular model says as gold. All it does is calculate what the weather will be using specific algorithms (which does indeed work, but it's nowhere near always accurate). This is just one of many computer models out there -- this one is just one of the few that does longer range forecasts.

I say that just so that plans don't get preemptively cancelled.

Having said that, I am still confident that we will get cold in that timeframe as the cold air is still building up nice and strong in the Yukon Territories, which is usually a good location for the cold air to flood into our area. Plus, the model has been showing some consistency with it being cold in that time period for the last few days.

My vacation was just great -- I really enjoyed it. Thanks for asking

I spent Christmas with family down in Nuevo Laredo and then a few days Monterrey (what a great town!!)

Here are pics I took and posted on another thread:

Don't forget the laff-a-lympics, or whatever they were called. Was it the Hanna Barbara characters that would compete and cheat and get one over on each othere? Or warner bros? I can't remember...
My son has a hard time understanding the concept of "Saturday morning cartoons" with these 24/7 cartoon channels!
