Lift your glass of deep red wine and join me in the Sacrifice to Ullr.

From afar, we honor you, oh great Ullr.
Hear as we hail you
Offerings we pour to you
In honor and love
(Sound the hunting horn)
Hail to Ullr
Join with us on this dark night to feast in the glory of Winter.
With the stroke of your mighty hand,
Cover the fields and the mountains
Receive our sacrifice.


Think that will work, Jason?  You try your method, I'll try mine.  

BTW, I tried to find a Virgin to sacrifice. Nothing in Saratoga or Warren Counties. Sorry.  Keep looking.
If you are having fun, you are doing it right.

Re: Storm Speculation: 12/26/10

Yea we had some fun with the whole virgin thing.

The advantage that we have over Jason ... we are not tied to the facts or scientific evidence in any way.

Keep an eye the 48 and 96 hour snowfall forecasts, and the NWS Albany Point Forecast map for (hopefully) a northward extension of the winter storm watch:

Next model runs should be out in a couple hours, and Jason will be back from Belleayre. Stay tuned.

Re: Storm Speculation: 12/26/10

Apparently Jason has the best of it...He's skiing!  I am wearing shorts in 70 degree weather

I think the sacrifices are working.  It looks like the storm is going to get closer to the coast and Gore will get something.  A few inches would be nice and if this thing bombs out and comes in a hundred miles or so, maybe more than that. Should be fun hitting it after 18 hours of driving.   On another note, the GFS is trying to bring in colder air for New Years and the snow word has crept into the forecast with that four letter R word.  It is still looking warm but more of that deep red sacrifice is in order...Merry Christmas Ullr!

Latest update:  I want to cry,  near misses are like losing a close game (Giant's fans understand this) I am holding on to one hope...there is a storm discussion on FIS and I love this quote: "Gulf origin lows are nuts. They do crazy stuff"  I am down here just south of the energy coming together.  We have big wind and heavy rain just north of us....please, please, please track 100 miles to the west of the currently  forecasted track...I really want to ski pow at Gore on Tuesday

Re: Storm Speculation: 12/26/10

well it looks like the big winners will be the Cats..As of now , it's a pretty safe bet they will get around 12"+..
the Greens and White should pick up 12+ too..But the main problem with this system will be the WIND..Gusts over 50 in the mountains will be common..
I'm sure there will be more to say tomorrow..

Re: Storm Speculation: 12/26/10

Had a hard time sleeping.

Looks real for almost everyone except maybe the Adks...



Adks are going to need some  magic ...

...so CLOSE for Whiteface and Gore, with the edge the Winter Storm Warning Area at Glens Falls and the VT border.
