    was hoping for more snow, now that the "forecast" has shifted west, hoping for all rain. I am surrounded by big, tall trees. Lost a couple of branches in the wind/rain storm the other week.
    The forecast for Raleigh seems to have changed from "winter weather" to "cold and gross".

    LOL, yea, the Weather Channel usually tries to send Jim C to that part of the country that will have the worst weather. It would not surprise me if it is part of his contract.

    He thrives on that, the hype is his fuel. Fond memories of some years ago when NYC was expected to get a huge storm, they positioned Jim in Times Square, and the storm completely fizzled, the best part of which was when the camera cut to Jim, people in cars were mercilessly heckling him, "where's the big storm, Jim, where's the big storm?" Excellent TV.

    p.s. his go to phrase when things are going slowly is "things are a bit quiet now, but you get the feeling that all hell is about to cut loose!"

    p.s. The Weather Service has hit us with a full Wind Chill Warning for tomorrow, -40, and they've tacked on a Winter Storm Watch for Monday, what with the bread and milk system heading our way...

    If it's in his contract, I suspect he put it there. The man lives for bad weather.

    I'm supposed to fly out of AVL at 9am on Monday. Methinks I might be forced to find an alternate plan.

    That and a few thousand weight lifting reps every day.
    Nothing incites bodily violence quicker than a Duke fan turning in your direction and saying 'scoreboard.'

    Yeah, I would look into that immediately.
