Fair enough. Was just hoping to get a discussion going on the topic. Well, to be honest, I'm not sure what sort of response I was looking for.
There's just something that is very much different this year, and specifically this storm. Like I said, I can't put my finger on it, and I don't claim to have a solution. Yes, it's horrible to wade through a bunch of posts, but I've learned to skim through the side conversations and latch onto good data/intel.
I think Giving the mets blogs is a good and bad thing too. Any met post should ultimately be cross-posted to the latest storm forum because they certainly have the info we're all here after. They're the draw, so to speak. I know that when (for example) Clark posts, I'll actually take the time to read and re-read everything he says. That man does things in a manner that I completely get, and I enjoy reading verification of things I've been noticing from someone who does get paid to do this.
Now, that seems to go against my "what's so special about the NHC" subrant, but I'm not really anti-NHC. Never have been, really. They're where the buck stops and like Shaft, they deliver 10 times out of 10.
Anyway thanks for the shiny thread and a great board, Mike.
