It was his daughters idea.

One thing that makes this gentleman chuckle about frick park is the fact that really, its a piece of crap property with crappy access for the most part. It had to have been damn near worthless when it was created into a park. How the hell could you get down to the bottom of the park back in the day? No wonder it was never developed....it couldnt be developed because of the topography.

If that s.o.b. could have extracted a few more bones by doing something other than donating it, he probably would have.

Wow. The weather channel has really gone down the crapper. The local radars look like something straight out of 1999. Also, the HD channel doesn't do local coverage? Total waste of a station.

Given how much effort they put into the radar, they feel the same.

AccuWeather on my phone wasn't doing so hot on the radar either. Not sure that I have the full app installed though.

The HD channel hasn't done local for as long as I can remember, at least 2 years.

TWC is a big joke anymore. Last night I was channel surfing and there is actually a show on TWC called "Fat Guys in the Wild". A wilderness expert takes overweight guys into extreme conditions to teach them survival skills.

WTF?

I think DirecTV is still airing WeatherNation in place of TWC. Which I didn't like at first, but they actually show just the weather, so it's like TWC from 1995.

Weather forecast looking absolutely fantastic through the weekend, with highs not cracking 80 and lows in the low 50s. This summer has been beyond awesome.

Polar Vortex to Return Early in the Northeast

http://m.accuweather.com/en/weather-news/fall-2014-forecast-polar-vortex/31254218#link1

While the fall will kick off with days of sunshine and temperatures above normal in some of the region's largest cities, including New York City and Philadelphia, the polar vortex may make its return for short, sporadic periods in September.

"The vortex could slip at times, maybe even briefly in September for the Northeast," AccuWeather Lead Long-Range Forecaster Paul Pastelok said. "There could be a significant shot of chilly air that comes across the Great Lakes region and into the interior Northeast sometime in mid- to late-September."

As conditions in northern Canada begin to set up similar to last fall, getting colder and unsettled quickly, it is likely that this pattern could become a source for colder air to make its way down at times into the United States, inducing a drop in temperatures for the interior Northeast during mid-fall.

"Temperatures will not be as extreme in November when compared to last year, but October could be an extreme month," Pastelok said.

After short-lived days of the polar vortex in September, the weather should turn a bit warmer in November as rain ramps up across areas from New York City to Boston and Portland, Maine, as well as the rest of the region.

"We will see some dry weather in the Northeast, barring any tropical systems, in September and October but in November it will get wet," Pastelok said.

Following a soaking November for Northeastern residents, El Niño will make its debut early this winter, fueling early winter snow across the area.

"December could get kind of wild due to the very active southern jet stream that is going to provide the moisture for bigger snowstorms," Pastelok said. "The Northeast could have a couple of big storms in December and early January."

Thought it was going to get cooler after last week but back up to the 90's which blows after just having surgery on my hand I can't go have fun in the lake which now would be the best time for it because the water is warm.

If memory serves, back in the winter/spring they predicted that this summer would largely be mild rather than having any sort of blistering heat, and they were right on with that one. Usually they can make educated guesses on how the season as a whole is going to go. Couple that with "The Northeast could have a couple of big storms in December and early January." Sounds like a horoscope. lol. You could say that for any winter in the Northeast.
