Seattle, already having its snowiest February in 70 years, set for even more

first_imgTainar/iStock(SEATTLE) — The second winter storm in a week brought 7.9 inches of snow to Seattle on Friday night and Saturday.Nearly 2 feet of snow fell in the mountains outside the city of Seattle, which has received 10.6 inches of snow so far in February, the most snow for the month in 70 years.After receiving fresh snow, the city is likely going to see its coldest morning temperature since November 2010.The area is digging out from the snow, right as two more storms are lined up to hit the area in the next two days. New winter storm watches have been posted for the metro area.Additionally, winter storm warnings and winter weather advisories are posted for much of the rest of the West, while the region deals with mountain snow and gusty winds.Early Sunday, heavy snow and rain are affecting parts of California. Some of this heavy rain and snow will make it down to Southern California later in the day with snow accumulations possible in the Grapevine.By the evening, another Pacific storm will arrive in the Northwest and bring snow to Seattle again, with likely both rain and snow falling in Portland. Another more potent storm will arrive in Seattle and bring heavy snow by Monday night and early Tuesday.Locally, 5 to 8 inches of snow will fall through Tuesday night in Seattle. With that type of additional snowfall, Seattle will be making a run at its snowiest February on record.Storms move in Midwest, NortheastOne of the storms that hit the West Coast is reorganizing in the central U.S. Sunday morning, and already bringing some light snow to the Central Plains. This storm will quickly race off to the east and bring snow from Minnesota to Pennsylvania later Sunday.This storm then falls apart overnight and is suppressed from making any further movement toward the Northeast. Another storm quickly comes out of the West on Monday and brings heavy rain toward the Mississippi River Valley, and snow once again from Minnesota to New Jersey.On Tuesday morning, snow will extend from Minneapolis to possibly New York City. Snow is likely to change to ice and rain along the Interstate 95 corridor on Tuesday morning.However, a developing coastal low will increase precipitation in New England by Wednesday morning. Much of the Northeast will see heavy precipitation.The result of this unsettled pattern could bring 6 inches of snow to parts of New England and parts of the Midwest through Tuesday night. Some ice accumulation looks possible from Michigan to New Jersey. And 2 to 4 inches of rain, esulting in flash flooding, are possible in spots in the Mississippi River Valley.Copyright © 2019, ABC Radio. All rights reserved.last_img read more

Bowman bolstered by Johnson’s early support, now takes over as his successor

first_imgWhen Alex Bowman joined Hendrick Motorsports for the 2018 season, he played along with the mistaken impression that he was a promising Cup Series rookie — even though already he had two-plus years of experience in NASCAR’s top division. Bowman was in on the joke, if only because his actual rookie season was forgettable; he scratched the top 20 just once for heavy underdog BK Racing and finished 35th in the 2014 driver standings.Bowman was about as far away on the grid as he could be from Jimmie Johnson, who had just sealed the sixth of his seven championships the year before. But Johnson often made it a point to check in with the series’ newer faces during pre-race ceremonies, and his uplifting words helped sustain Bowman as he raced hard in relative obscurity.RELATED: Catch up on the latest Silly Season news“I was talking about the race that had taken place the week before at just how hard I saw him driving the car,” Johnson recalled. “He was totally sideways, I could see his left-front tire and how active he was behind the wheel, just trying to hang onto it and still going forward. I remember approaching him and being like, ‘Man, I can’t believe you held onto that car and were able to save it and drive it.’ He’s definitely grown up running on the dirt, and I could tell that day when I saw him wheeling the car.”Somewhat improbably, the two drivers became Hendrick Motorsports teammates four years later and Tuesday, Bowman was introduced as Johnson’s successor in the No. 48 Chevrolet. But their bonds developed into a friendship that was a source of motivation during Bowman’s times of career uncertainty.“He was the first guy to come up to me and be like, ‘Hey, man. You’re doing a really good job with what you have to work with,’ at a time when I was really unsure of my career and didn’t know how things were going to go, wasn’t really having a whole lot of fun,” Bowman says. “That encouragement kept me going for quite a while, so to be able to take over a car from him is really special.”Bowman said the two drivers chatted earlier this week to discuss the impending news and how his move to a new team and new sponsor might play out. “More than anything, I just wanted him to know that I’m here,” Johnson said, indicating he would remain close to the No. 48 team next year, even as he leaves full-time Cup Series competition after this season.Bowman will have some continuity as his pairing with crew chief Greg Ives will remain in place, but he’ll again be a new figure following in famous footsteps. Three years ago, Bowman replaced Dale Earnhardt Jr. in the Hendrick No. 88; next season, he’ll take the reins of the No. 48 Chevrolet that Johnson carried to Hall of Fame heights in his illustrious career.“To watch his growth over the last few years, to drive after Dale Jr. in the 88 car and the pressure that comes with that, I feel like that was a big hurdle to accomplish when he first started, and he checked that box very well and moved on,” Johnson said. “Then the performance started to come, and the next thing is, can you elevate the consistency and have that there week-in and week-out. Then can you win and continue to win consistently, and he just keeps climbing the ladder with all those things in mind and handling all of this very, very well and delivering great results on a consistent level.”Though 2021’s early story lines will likely focus on whether Bowman can add to the stellar history of the No. 48, Johnson insists he’s eager to see Bowman forge his own identity with the team — much as he has the last three seasons.It’s just the latest form of encouragement from one driver to another, tracing back to a shared pre-race moment from 2014.“As we all know, it’ll be a story for a while and then he’s going to make that car his, and he’ll have an opportunity to write his own story,” Johnson says. “So, I’m excited for him, and I can’t wait to see what that story is.”MORE: Jimmie Johnson’s career in photoslast_img read more

Castleton poll shows strong support for wind power development

first_imgby Andrew Stein February 27, 2013 vtdigger.org The results of a February poll conducted by the Castleton Polling Institute show strong support for developing wind projects on Vermont ridgelines and subsidizing ‘ alternative energy.’The poll drew from 617 Vermonters across a range of ages and incomes. Of those individuals, 66 percent said they support ‘ building wind energy turbines along the state’ s ridgelines,’ while 19 percent oppose the practice and 14 percent are unsure.The poll found that 69 percent of participating Vermonters are in favor of ‘ the development of a wind farm’ in their community, compared with 19 percent who oppose the proposition and 12 percent who are unsure. Of those residents, 66 percent also said that Vermont’ s government ‘ should subsidize alternative energy,’ opposed to the 20 percent who are against the notion and 14 percent who are unsure.Wind development advocates ‘ like Paul Burns, director of the Vermont Public Interest Research Group ‘ praised the results.‘ Wind power in Vermont is clean, safe and abundant,’ Burns said in a public statement. ‘ It’ s no wonder that support for wind remains so strong, despite the extreme rhetoric from groups like Energize Vermont and Vermonters for a Clean Environment.’Lukas Snelling is the director of Energize Vermont, which opposes the ridgeline development of wind turbines in Vermont. The group organized a rally this autumn, where nearly 200 protesters came out against developing wind turbines on Vermont’ s ridgelines.Snelling interprets the results of the poll differently than Burns does, pointing to the dip in support for ridgeline development from a 2012 Castleton Poll, which was conducted with help from various media outlets across the state. The 2012 poll found that 69 percent of participants supported such development, compared to the 66 percent this year.‘ The latest numbers released today from the Castleton Polling Institute show support for ridgeline wind in Vermont continues to erode,’ Snelling said in a public statement. ‘ Activists and citizens questioning the development of Vermont’ s ridgelines for wind power attribute the continued erosion of support to a variety of factors, but one of the most likely is that more of Vermont towns are facing proposals from aggressive wind developers.’PHOTO: Searsburg wind turbineslast_img read more

Bar investments continue to perform

first_img Bar investments continue to perform The Bar’s investment portfolio continues to perform well, and the Investment Committee is embarking on an exhaustive review to help maintain that result.Investment Committee Chair Ian Comisky reported to the Board of Governors last month that for the first 11 months of 2012 the Bar’s long-term portfolio rose by 6.5 percent.“We’re having a good year despite the uncertainty in the market,” he said. “The discipline and diversity of the investments have served us well.”Later in the meeting, the board got a striking example of how well those policies have worked. Audit Committee Chair Clay Schnitker, during his report, noted that Bar assets in the 2010-11 fiscal year rose by $7 million — almost entirely due to returns from investments.Since 1999, Comisky said, the Standard & Poor’s 500 stock index has risen at an average rate of 1.7 percent annually. The Bar’s investments during the same period have averaged 4.7 percent, he said.At the recommendation of its advisors, Comisky said the committee has slightly increased the Bar’s investments in commodities and international stocks. The panel also has begun a comprehensive review of investment policies, including a review of all the funds in which the Bar invests, which could lead to more changes, he said.

Midweek opponent allows Anderson to shuffle lineup

first_imgHowever, MacLean said he’s willing to “grind it out” the rest of the season.“Yesterday (Monday) was enough time off for me,” he said. “I don’t have anything after these four, five weeks (of school). It’s now or never.”MacLean has played in 35 of the 37 Gophers games this season, while Lyons is one of three players to have played in 36 of the games.“We’ll probably play a number of players,” Anderson said. “If those guys play I hope I can limit their play.”Because of the midweek game, junior pitcher Marcus McKenzie also will get a chance to impress the coaches – he’s getting his second start of the season tonight.“We were impressed with his ability to at least go out there and have some command,” Anderson said. “Maybe he’s going to be a factor here at the end of the year.”McKenzie said he’ll most likely pitch three or four innings.“I have a pitch count due to the fact that I got my first start the other day,” he said. “I threw about 40 pitches. So that will probably be around the same, maybe a little more.”After McKenzie pitches the Gophers most likely will mix and match out of the bullpen while doing the same to the batting order. But that’s customary for the Gophers in a midweek game.“There’s always one or two guys that aren’t normal weekend starters,” MacLeansaid. “I think it’s a good opportunity for the future of the program to get those guys some at-bats.” Midweek opponent allows Anderson to shuffle lineupMinnesota plays South Dakota State tonight at the Metrodome. Robert MewsApril 26, 2006Jump to CommentsShare on FacebookShare on TwitterShare via EmailPrintMinnesota baseball coach John Anderson isn’t afraid to change a lineup card in the middle of a Big Ten race.He’s also more willing to do the same for a nonconference opponent, such as South Dakota State (18-21), which the Gophers (20-17) face at 6:30 tonight at the Metrodome.Anderson said midweek games are an opportunity to re-evaluate his players and get some younger players some experience and rest some starters.“We’re here to try and develop our players and try to keep getting better,” he said. “And if you don’t try different combinations and take some risks once in a while, then how do you know?”What is known is that Anderson said he’d like to get Tony Lesemen over at third base.Joe Maciej is the only real option the team has at third since Nate Hanson went out with a wrist injury.“We really don’t have another player if we do pinch-hit for Joe or if he gets hurt,” Anderson said about the situation. “I’m hoping to get him over there on Wednesday.”Anderson has used a past midweek game to place outfielder Mike Mee at third, an experiment he has not tried since.“I’m not afraid to make some changes, and I’m not afraid to try different people,” he said.Anderson also said he’d like to get shortstop Dan Lyons and second baseman Luke MacLean some rest.“I’d like to give Luke MacLean a little break,” he said. “His arm is a little tired, so he could use a break.”last_img read more
