re: Alexander the great vs Genghis Khan - Duke
In this presumed battle Alexander would have to take a defensive stance. There's no sense in trying an attack on the Horde in the open field. He'd have to keep his heavy horses back to protect the flanks. He might have a shot if he got a good mass of foot archers with contemporary bows to the Mongol...

re: Alexander the great vs Genghis Khan - Duke

re: Possible Snow Event to SELA Nov 26th?! - Duke
The NAO is looking good for the SE to get some chilly weather at least. Lows in the 30s in the BR next week. Downright frigid. [img]http://www.cpc.ncep.noaa.gov/products/precip/CWlink/pna/nao.sprd2.gif[/img]...

re: Possible Snow Event to SELA Nov 26th?! - Duke
This is why we don't post phantom GFS snow storms for SELa until we're within a few days and it's consistent. The run he posted looks like it has cold air chasing the precipitation. Those scenarios very rarely materialize. It's fun to dream though. ...

Admins. redgiraffe is not me. He's my brother in law, who is currently occupying a room in my house. He's on my wifi network, so our ips probably match. Don't keep a good...err...decent man down for no fault of his own. :cheers:...

Ajax, while probably packed, is good eats for the dollar. Located on the Square. City Grocery has a good bar upstairs and a good restaurant downstairs though a bit pricey. Also on the Square. Big Bad Breakfast is a local favorite, but next door they also have the Snack Bar for not breakfast st...

[quote]we are in need of a reset.[/quote] I had the surreal experience after Scalice got shot of actually having to argue murder is bad, even if you don't like the politics of the target. There's far too much negative emotion stirred up in the political game today. I know, it drives the money...

[quote]Technically you're right because it will be extra-tropical. [/quote] It could be still tropical if it's moving fast enough, if you believe the models. That being said, staying fully tropical at like 60N would be ridiculous. ...

[quote]I guess that for most, losing is an odd thing to be so fervently proud of for so long.[/quote] I get that. Let's just say southern history isn't full of proud moments. A poor agricultural area, remmebered for slavery, Jim Crow, losing the civil war. The memory of a hard fight while ove...
