• Effective immediately we will be deleting, without notice, any negative threads or posts that deal with the use of encryption and streaming of scanner audio.

    We've noticed a huge increase in rants and negative posts that revolve around agencies going to encryption due to the broadcasting of scanner audio on the internet. It's now worn out and continues to be the same recycled rants. These rants hijack the threads and derail the conversation. They no longer have a place anywhere on this forum other than in the designated threads in the Rants forum in the Tavern.

    If you violate these guidelines your post will be deleted without notice and an infraction will be issued. We are not against discussion of this issue. You just need to do it in the right place. For example:

It was a crazy storm here in Boulder. Right above the Flatirons, some clouds were going East, while others were going West. Right before the storm, I saw a weather baloon go up just to the South of me. I new once I saw that, it was going to be a nasty storm. The streets here are covered with leaves that the storm took out.

Are you saying your 996 is already smoked? Damn!

Nasty storms in and around the metro area and Denver SkyWarn is MIA. :mad:

As usual the storms missed Greeley. The Cow Smell (from the stampede?) must have made them turn away. :lol:

Looks like some more may be heading out of Wyoming as of this post.

Phil.

I don't have a pro 96, but when there is lighting around I always unplug the antenna I have up on the roof. My luck says it would get hit, then I'd have to go see Erik....

Not if you're not connected to an external antenna. And I'd run it off of batteries. :)

city of Boulder is reporting large damaging hail and heavy flooding
Brodway and baseline
I was at a party tonight at the Stadium Club at Folsom Field. I had no sooner gotten inside when all "hail" broke loose. Pea- to marble- sized hail, some a bit larger.

What was wierd was the length of time it hailed. I'm used to it hailing for a few seconds to a few minutes; this storm had constant, blizzard-like hail for at least 20 minutes.

It was a terrific vantage point to watch the storm...
