NOW MORE THAN EVER I NEED YOUR HELP WITH OPERATING EXPENSES
THE FUTURE OF THE SITE DEPENDS ON YOU.
Hi everyone, as you know, TSwails.com is a no-pay site; existing on voluntary subscriptions or personal donations. If you find value in the site, I'm asking kindly that you make the donation you feel is worthy. I'm suggesting $20.00, roughly a nickel a day. Less than 5% of my readers donate, so your gift is not only appreciated, it helps immensely. Your contribution, whatever you can swing, supports the content, infrastructure, and operational costs. Thanks for anything you can do.
ON THE OTHER SIDE...
Obviously it's no longer feeling like spring, but it's no arctic outbreak on the other side! It does feel cooler outside after the month of February started as the warmest on record... broke records... and got into the 60s!
High temperatures have been running 20 degrees above normal -- temperatures more typical of late March/early April! Temperatures were still in the 40s Saturday, but with the wind it felt much colder, especially compared to our spoiling in the 60s. Temperatures will still be in the 40s Sunday afternoon:
As Terry alluded to in his last post, there's some uncertainty in the long-range forecast. The Arctic-Oscillation is negative and expected to dip further. This is usually an indication of a colder pattern for us...
Temperatures will still be above normal through at least Thursday this week and then there's the potential for things to take a turn. The European model is showing this drop:
But the GFS is showing a rollercoaster ride... with no real trend. Some ups and some downs:
So for now it's not been so bad on the other side of the 50s and 60s, but the future is muddied. We should have a clearer answer soon.
A message from Terry: With my recent health issues, I very much need to reach my fund-raising goals. To keep things as they are, I'm in humble need of your donation to the site more than ever. If you use it and find value in it, please consider a contribution. Thanks to you who have already helped the cause!
