    JB's December 1963 talk has me singing the Frankie Valley song "Oh what a night (or oh what a snow) late December back in 63"

    @Tarheel1 looks like our second cold rain of the season is on its way for early next week. Great start to the season :)

    I’ll take a cold rain in November and December! It’s the Jan/Feb cold rains that really suck!

    Better then walking out into a sauna swatting bugs and walking into spider webs while wiping sweat away.

    Panthers look like SB contenders one week, high school team the next. They absolutely suck tonight!

    I'm surprised by how the Panthers are doing tonight.

    I am not really. They have yet to beat any really good teams yet. A lot of the wins they could have lost, too. The defense is not very good, especially the secondary. They are inconsistent and their record is deceptive.

    Rams and Saints are clearly the best teams in the NFC.

    I would like to see a rematch because that is a good game to watch.

    Panthers have only 2 wins against teams that are .500 or better.

    That cannot be the call by NC State on defense that led to Wake Forest's likely game winning TD.

    A November snow threat is failing and now December looking borderline torchy..... prepare for the premature gnashing and wailing of teeth

    We live in the SE, every winter is backloaded down here. January, February and even March is our time, let November and December warm up. This happens every year so it’s nothing new. Being patient is the key and we have zero.

    LOL...it's going to get real around here for the next few weeks. Mid-January can't come fast enough.

    Assume everyone saw Grit's winter forecast, great read.

    I am tired of all of these Wolfpack-eque slow starts to winter. Every year, it seems like there's some reason that December has to be mild. All those doggone mountain torques, I guess.

    I just hope we can start flipping the script near the end of December, say just before Christmas.... yes I'm weird like that, I chase the white Christmas unicorn every year. Kind of like a Panthers Super Bowl.... one of them is going to happen one day right??

    I'm quite ok if December features some variability. But this waiting on getting deep into January every year before we even have a shot at winter is ridiculous. It seems like every year, we're talking about a back-loaded winter. Nothing better than highlighting the winter by chasing March snowstorms that get destroyed by a high sun angle and mix with rain as the temp sits at 34.
