I'm too much of a summer outdoors person that the winter days just start becoming a drag. Baseball, softball, golf, kayaking, cornhole, grill outs, chilling at the pool, etc ... that's my style.

Put an end to the Lost Decade.
It's not supposed to crack 65 here this week and it was cloudy all day. I don't know if I can deal with this anymore.
I've been running a lot of freight in the south recently, going across I-20 quite a bit between Alabama and Texas. I was wearing shorts about all last week then I got out of Huntsville and ran up to Chicago. I then went from Chicago to Detroit and then back home, where I'm still sitting. I go through a lot of different weather zones and my body just stays completely confused, not to mention the colds I get when going from 80 to 15 in the course of one long run.
By the way the high in Indy today was around 24F or something. Real "mild" stuff there.
a super volcano of ridonkulous suckitude.
I simply don't have access to a "cares about RBI" place in my psyche. There is a "mildly curious about OBI%" alcove just before the acid filled lake guarded by robot snipers with lasers which leads to the "cares about RBI" antechamber though. - Nate
There is no such thing as a pitching prospect.
We're slated for snow and ice tonight and tomorrow.
For the record, I officially hate this woman now.
She's the meteorologist for an Indy TV station. Her purpose in life as far as I can tell is to scare people about weather. Three weeks ago we were supposed to get something like the Blizzard of '78 according to her and her senseless lackeys. We ended up with a dusting of snow.
My kids woke up at 5am ready to sled. Needless to say there was crying.

Let's make some noise!
That was right before you broke them the news about there being no place to actually sled in Indiana right?My kids woke up at 5am ready to sled. Needless to say there was crying.
This goes for mainly severe weather season, but it can apply to winter as well. If you issue too many warnings people get hacked off because you're a sensationalist who loves to scare the crap out of people. On the other hand, if you don't issue enough warnings and someone gets hurt or killed then those same people think you should be fired. I just hope that people understand that meteorology is not perfect and meteorologists only do the best they can. But as science and technology improve there could be a day coming where forecasts improve even more. Prior to 1950 it was thought that tornadoes couldn't even be forecasted, period. Today we have RADARs that can detect the potential for most tornadoes (and the worst ones) and that has saved many lives. It's not perfect but it sure beats the snot of 60 years ago. Also we have complex weather models that are ran by supercomputers in Washington DC. That had greatly improved forecasts of all types of weather and alot of times meteorologists know when the environments are correct for severe weather, winter weather, etc. Again nothing is perfect but things have gotten ALOT better.
