    I guess I'm not the only person to read Henry's Blog on a daily basic.

    Yea Henry is not afraid to stick his neck out and will take the blame if he is wrong. Elliot is a cool guy also.

    I have just made my first visit to this web site. I loved it! I usually depend on NOAA weather, but was really impressed by this site. Looking forward to seeing more of it in the future!:salute:

    Henry seems like a nice guy, but he has been wrong on every single storm this winter, at least as far as So. New England is concerned. I've been waiting for the Big Daddy he has been talking about for a month now. He bites too early on the big storms. I don't mind if he sticks his neck out, but calling for a big storm a week in advance isn't what I would do. The models simply change too much in that time period. In his defense though, even the NOAA guys have said on more than one occasion that this winter has been particuarly tough to forecast, that the models have not done a good job. All I'm saying is I'm sick of Henry getting my hopes up just to watch them go out to sea all the time. Sorry for the long post. J.

    Yea, Henry has been wrong for us in New England but he also lets us know that the models have been doing the cha cha all winter and he is right? I read his blog everyday the storms are on the models one day and then the next they disapear. He is always honest and sincere thoug and he wants the big storms like the rest of us!!!

    Makplow,
    I completely agree that he is honest and sincere. I wasn't trying to say that he was intentionally misleading us in any way. All I was trying to say was that he makes the call too early and says a snowstorm is coming, and then nothing. Maybe it's just because he's just as anxious as I am to get a big storm. I really hope he's right on this one next week too, although reading the NOAA discussions, they're already saying it's going out to sea again. Go figure, that's the story of the winter. J.

    Your right J Looks like Henry called another one too soon and the valentine's day storm is going out too sea below us. It seems like everone in the country is getting snow except Mass, Conn , and R.I. :angry:

    I just read his latest entry, figures. We can't buy any snow around here. Just when you think about getting a good storm, nothin'. I think I'm moving to Oswego county NY. They could get a 100 inches by the time all this lake effect is over. That's crazy!! J.

    I just saw Henry's latest report, he says there'll only be snow SOUTH of Maryland!:angry: D@%N...I wonder if we'll EVER get any real snow in Northern, NJ!:confused: With my luck we'll probably get a blizzard while I'm away!:dizzy: :cry:

    i'm starting to worry if we don't get any snow cover soon the frost is going to drive in so deep that it ill be the end of April before it comes out so some of us can't get back to our summer work. There will be a ton of mud also. We will also get flooded with rain to complicate matters even more. Sorry too sound pessimistic but i'm worried?

    This weather is just insane. We have only gotten a total of 2-3" so far this year. I have a feeling people around here are going to be talking about this winter for years to come.
