SEARCHING THROUGH THE FOG...

I NEED YOUR HELP TO MEET 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!


Rebecca here -- I wanted to let you know Terry & Carolyn feel the love and appreciate all of the well wishes and prayers for T. Swails. I've been lucky to know the man for nearly a decade and he is a strong and stubborn dude and he will conquer this hill. Rest up, TS, and get well soon!


SEARCHING THROUGH THE FOG...

While the weather has calmed down in some respects, it's still been foggy and gloomy. The fog is a byproduct of the melting snow. As warm air has moved in, the snow is melting and releasing moisture into the atmosphere. That moisture is trapped due to the warm air aloft so then as temperatures at the surface cool that moisture is turned into fog.

You can see the difference in the snowpack over the course of the last week. On January 20th we had a foot to nearly two feet of snow still on the ground:

And as of Saturday morning you can see the big dent we've made:

There may be some fog around early Sunday with some improvement during the day. Temperatures will remain above freezing once again:

A big ridge of high pressure will move in over the course of the week and lead to warming temperatures and mostly quiet weather:

We may break into some sunshine Monday but we'll have mostly cloudy skies Monday and Tuesday. More sun is likely by Wednesday!

Temperatures will continue to rise over the week and more snow will melt. Here's the temperature trend for the Quad Cities:

And after having weeks of snow, rain, freezing rain, we are gong to have a mostly dry week up ahead. Here's the precipitation total expected for the week ahead:

We can all certainly take a breather after all of the wackiness over the last few weeks.


 P.S. Please consider a donation to the site. The future of TSwails depends on your generous contributions. Thanks for anything you can do!
