With the amount of useless OT threads that pop up every day and never make it past two pages, color me baffled that we can't have one for weather. I do go to other sites to get weather updates, and so far this winter, they haven't been much of help. The amount of pinpoint accuracy offered by HP and ScottB compared to those sites has been outstanding and extremely helpful. This kind of information has a true impact on our lives, yet, there are OT threads about Sean Avery posing naked allowed to stay open. Oh well, if thems the rules, so be it.

Looks like I'm joining this weather group.

The other OT threads have a relation to the Rangers, or to hockey (or at minimum, sports). Sean Avery is a Rangers player. The superhero thing is Rangers-themed. And on and on.

People wanted an OT thread, and got it. People wanted a draft thread and got it. People wanted around the league and jersey discussion and got it. The moderators aren't unreasonable.

If anyone wants to discuss this further, they can PM a moderator. Keep the whining out of this thread, please. This is the last time we make this request.

Ugh, until the Super Bowl is over. So as soon as the game clock rolls to 0:00, I'll have something that's not gag-inducing.

Believe me, Opus wastes no opportunity to rub this in my face! Though last year, I won a "Predict the Playoffs" bet with IslesRock4, and he had to change his username to I Love Justin Bieber. And rock a Bieber avatar. That was also Opus' idea.

The man does good work.

Haha that's great, who is Opus anyway? Like what team does he mod?

EDIT: Nevermind

Yeah. I'm probably not going to work on Wednesday (as many in my office said the same) but I didn't know tomorrow would be looking so bad as well.

Hopefully they close early. But if it's really 6-9 inches turning into ice, I don't see how they won't.

They are finally starting to break this over the news networks. But they are still downplaying it to just rain/freezing rain. They aren't really mentioning the possibility of icing or snow amounts.

Edit: Actually watching the Accuweather reports - their meteorologists explain the models part by part - I never even knew that. They really explain and go through all of it. Although it's funny how the actual videos don't match the weather reports on the website...

When you have to pass it in high school, you're gonna care about it.

I stumbled my way through Spanish class like an idiot and somehow got like a 95 on my Spanish regents last year. It was glorious.

Thank God I finished that crap last year.

I don't know how you do it in NJ, but in NY, language is a mandatory class from freshman to junior year.

I'm lucky I had nice teachers or else I would've been screwed.

I'm assuming some of you got report cards today. Picked mine up and got a 96 average. Pretty solid for not doing ****. It's great when you only have 3 classes, 2 of which are AP ones that are weighted.

Also got my schedule, get out 10:38 again. No complaints.
