As the last full month of winter rolls in the question remains – lots more frosty days ahead? Or, will severe season get an early start? The early bets look to be on more visits from the old man of the north.



After everyone thaws out a bit we’ll be on to severe season and the CPC thinks there will be some moistcha’ available…..

Time to watch the radar for frozen white invaders or AOD’s – pick your poison



Here in the bunker, we know where to go for any extreme weather event - To the nearest Bunker Bar




**** IMPORTANT NOTE **** The Bunker hosting runs out at the end of this month and provisions will need to be made if we are to extend our run of insanity.

    Good Morning Bunkerites!

    Got a wee bit-o-drizzle around here last night, but I don't think it amounted to much. More chances for today and tomorrow. Looks to be a chilly week in the south after the FROPA tomorrow, could be the last cool shot before spring/summer kicks in.....

    Ais' WhatTimeIsItCast - More ......

    Today: Cloudy. Showers and slight chance of thunderstorms in the morning, then slight chance of showers and thunderstorms in the afternoon. Highs in the lower 70s. West winds up to 5 mph shifting to the north in the afternoon. Chance of precipitation 90 percent.

    Tonight: Much colder. Mostly cloudy in the evening then becoming partly cloudy. Lows in the lower 40s. North winds 5 to 15 mph.

    Good morning, afternoon and evening, everyjuan! Well, there was some rain here yesterday, poured in town, but nary a drop here. However, we're about to have 'significant weather'. As dogs have already been out and are back in, it can storm all it wants. As long as I keep electric that is. Oh, and no more tornados, thank you very much! I heard the last one go by just north of me, it's a sound once heard you don't forget. Luckily it did not touch down so no damage anywhere. That was last week.

    Breakfast’s on the sideboard: Cheddar cheese grits casserole, Pancakes with buttered honey syrup, Praline pull apart bread, lemon blueberry Quinoa porridge, chicken fried steak with sausage gravy, fluffy biscuits, scrambled eggs muffin sliders, grits and grillades, Beignets, fresh fruit, tea and coffee. Enjoy!

    Morning Cone and others as they wander in. I woke up wondering why it seemed darker than usual.

    And here I was thinking of packing up the winter sweaters today, Cone. I think I'll hang on to them another week or two...

    We had a nice soaking but I agree that it probably wasn't a big amount.

    Morning Aislinn & HCat!

    No 'Naders! 'Naders bad JuJu, but it is getting to be "The Season" for them. We're supposed to get some more rain today and tomorrow from the next FROPA, we'll see about that.



    Breakfast Time!

    I'll have some Cheddar cheese grits casserole, chicken fried steak with sausage gravy, fluffy biscuits, scrambled eggs muffin sliders, grits and grillades, and coffee-TYVM Aislinn!

    I've come to realize Louisiana doesn't follow seasons, she just does whatever she wants when she wants. We've had three tornado warnings in the last month. If that is 'off season', I am dreading 'in season' weather. But I do love listening to the rain outside and love to listen to storms.

    I never liked springing ahead, I lose an hour of precious sleep!

    I'm still in Colorado Springs, I was hoping to get the nod on a job in Lake Havasu, but apparently, they are dragging their feet and so, I must go home where it is 1900 miles to Lake Havasu instead of 900 from here.

    When I lived in FL, this was the season where fires popped up in the brush. It was bad for those with houses near the fires, they were difficult to get to and they spread fast! On the other hand, it is almost orange blossom time. I remember driving from Orlando back home to Cape Coral after a job there down Highway 17. Mixed in with the sweet smell of the orange blossoms was the smell of smoke from a brush fire. The mix was as pleasant as any sweet pipe tobacco I have ever smelled. It was getting cool in the evening and the sun was setting and I had the windows down. It was a drive I made often and most of the time I enjoyed it, but especially in the evening.

    Anyway, another couple of months and you will have all the precipitation you never wanted. Grass will grow and mosquitoes will abound and outdoor activities will cease. I had a friend who had a home made bar on his back deck by his pool. I had a standing invitation whenever it rained to come over and sample the latest keg. He was a professional musician and we had played in a couple of bands together, so we always had something to talk about. He knew Prince, or rather Prince knew him. Sometimes he would play private recordings made by him and some of his rock star friends, while we sat there quaffing ale and watching the rain come down outside the awning.

    Fond memories...

    Driving with the windows down is seldom done anymore, especially down here, but I have good memories of many an open window car ride from way back, when AC was not a standard option.

    Speaking of 'Naders - some 'Naderish storms in LA....

    Yep Cone, it's on it's way. I believe the Dr. Mark approved FBM term is:

    I used to have a similar drive to/from work at this time of year since there was citrus groves on the way. A few years ago they ripped out all the trees and switched to sugar cane. Now it reeks of the chicken s#&t they use for fertilizer.

    As far as the site goes, we know how to keep it going in "limp home" mode, but we really need Dewey for full operational status.
    As far as the rest of it goes, I have always found that there is a fine point where the carrot is held out in front of the donkey, not so close it can eat it, but not so far it loses sight of it. The carrot will go in other "ends" as well, but not with the best of results, although there WILL be results.

    Glad to see you are getting stronger Gal. It's nice to see you when you drop by. I always picture you on the porch of a plantation mansion with big pillars, sitting in a fancy chair in a fancy "Southern Belle" dress, sipping on a Mint Julep and fanning yourself with a lacey fan, more for show than for cooling..


    Aww, yes, Kkid...thanky for the compliment Yes, the grandeur of the old south....it is actually still alive and well to some extent here in my area...many antebellum homes have survived...as have many of the traditions.....thank goodness most true southern women my age have held true to many of their lady-like ways, most I know anyway~~~~I do hope that remains as my children/grand children have been raised that way....It's diluted down to some extent, but not too much

    Good Morning Bunkerites!

    Nice to see MSG and her lovely entourage! I don't know what's going on down here with some of the ladies - what's with all the yoga pants???

    I hope CRJ gets the Go Pro to Blakels on time for some good in the field shots of the burning toxic debris as it rains down. And he thought they had gotten too much snoh this year

    BlackDar is showing some activity this morning, hopefully enough to put a damper on the fire activity for a week or so....

    Oh no! Time to start wearing the hard hat.

    Morning Cone. We are a chilly 21 here with some surprise snow showers expected this morning.
  24. InTheCone's Avatar
    A third Nor'easter to bomb out tomorrow with torrential snew and wind. Then things should start to change and the spring season of DOOM will begin in earnest(Ais' area not withstanding - it's 'Nader season there whenever it dern well wants to be)....

    Better than flying bits of super heated toxin laden Chinese space debris Going to be in the upper 40's here this week - positively shocking! Probably historic and unprecedented, but nobody cares to look it up

    Good morning, afternoon and evening, everyjuan! I opened the door to put out the dogs this morning and was hit with a feels like 38 temp. Going to enjoy these sweater weather days while I can!

    Blakels, hard hat and fall out shelter! You better start digging!!

    Breakfast’s on the sideboard: Country ham with red eye gravy, pecan sticky buns, Cajun Benedict (boudin and gumbo in place of Canadian bacon and hollandaise), eggs Sardou, Banana Foster Belgium waffles, Oatmeal brulee with ginger cream, Strawberry crepes with syrup and whipped cream, fresh fruit skewers, tea and coffee. Enjoy!

    Overcast and 39 here this morning. Woke up to a Winter Wx Advisory for tonight... maybe an inch of snoh followed by some colder air so maybe some black ice for the morning commute tomorrow.

    Blakels, if you can be the first to the debris field, maybe you can collect it and then sell it on eBay. (Or to the guvment)

    Morning Aislinn & LC!

    I have a feeling my rain chances are going down as fast as the Chinese space junk Good luck with your last chance at snoh for the year LC!

    At least there's breakfast!

    I'll have Country ham with red eye gravy, Cajun Benedict (boudin and gumbo in place of Canadian bacon and hollandaise), eggs Sardou, and coffee - TYVM Aislinn!

    We had a meteorite hit a few weeks ago. People are out looking for pieces. Hopefully they don't find the kind Joe Dirt found.
