Great Lakes are 88+% froze over. Been a long time since that happened. Imagine walking across a lake that has a surface area of 23,000 sq miles. That's Lake Huron, it's approaching 90% frozen over..

Ice jams in the rivers gonna be real interesting this year.

There's likely going to be some flooding when the ice and snow melts, too. Not so much for the lakes, I think, but always a concern where there are rivers.

Just dug out from 2 feet of snow in the Hudson Valley. Feels a little like it used to in the 1950s when this was normal.

Even here in St. Louis where it snows one day and gone the next, we've had several inches on the ground for a few weeks.

I'm glad someone else remembers that too, not only was it "normal" -- we simply shoveled the snow and then set off for school, which was rarely canceled for "only" 2 feet...

Some days, when we got to the school, some of the older boys would be tasked with shoveling off the school's sidewalks and parking places, too. And then report to classes with the coveted, "Snow Pass".

Neighbors would band together and shovel off whole streets.

Then drive to work afterwards, and many of them could not afford to be late for work, either, they simply got out of bed earlier in order to deal with the snowstorm.

And it seemed like *everybody* knew the proper methods for driving safely in the snow.

Nobody made the claim that it was an End-of-the-World-As-We-Know-It event, either, but then that generation had been to the big city and seen the elephant, so to speak, something called WWII...

Yeah, we're hoping the lake levels rise a bit from it all. Been a couple feet low for a couple decades. However it takes about 10" of snow to make an inch of water.
You are exactly right; it's the rivers that will flood, not the lakes.

Wikipedia says 1.1 million gallons of water flow through the mouth of St Clair river per second. Probably won't be enough come the thaw when ice starts impeding the progress.
That's another unique part. I remember forty years ago when these large snows were not uncommon, but we usually got a January thaw, or at least a few days of warm to melt it and start over. Didn't happen this year.

My front yard has a few feet on it. My landscape lights are a couple feet tall and when I turn them on the snow glows, looks pretty cool.
The piles of snow at the edge of parking lots is hilarious. They might not finish melting until June!

Mind you I am not complaining, just sayin' it ain't a normal winter here. Even considering the past.

Ah, the hubris.

Have we been here long enough to even be able to say what is "normal" about the climate and/or weather?

Methinks not.

RealBand 2019 - A New Look!

Have you opened up your RealBand 2019 yet? You may notice that we've given it a fresh new look! In fact, there are now 3 different looks to RealBand.

See for yourself! Within the program, visit Options | Icon Set and choose from: Classic, Modern 1, or Modern 2.

Band-in-a-Box® 2019 for Windows - Choosing to Run 64-bit or 32-bit

We heard you! With the release of Band-in-a-Box® 2019 for Windows we've included the BRAND NEW 64-bit version of Band-in-a-Box®, which works well with the latest plugins and 64-bit OS features! Because not everyone has a 64-bit computer, we include both the 64-bit and 32-bit versions with your purchase - you choose which one to use!

By default, when you install your Band-in-a-Box® 2019 for Windows the 32-bit version will run.

The steps to run the 64-bit version are simple! Just head to your "bb" folder and choose the "bbw64" icon - you'll notice that the Band-in-a-Box® "splash screen" will state "64-bit" as the program opens.
(and if you open the 32-bit version, the "splash screen" will state "32-bit")

Still not certain which version you're running? Within the program, go to Help | About Band-in-a-Box - it'll either state:

Band-in-a-Box® for Windows
Version 2019 (604)
<--- the number in brackets is the build number - this will change as new patch updates are released
64 bit application

or:

Band-in-a-Box® for Windows
Version 2019 (604)
<--- the number in brackets is the build number - this will change as new patch updates are released
32 bit application

We hope everyone who can is enjoying their Band-in-a-Box® 2019 64-bit version for Windows!

NEW! Style-style-style Additions and Enhancements in Band-in-a-Box® 2019 for Windows!

With over 64 new features and enhancements in Band-in-a-Box® 2019, we've made sure to add to, enhance, and update some of the Style features within the program: StylePicker, StyleMaker, and Song Titles browser within the StylePicker!

StylePicker Enhancements:
-If the style list needs rebuild, it tells you that within the StylePicker, instead of a message that requires a response.
-The rebuild is faster than before by 75%. It takes 1/4 of the time now.
-While the style list is being rebuilt, you can see the progress inside the StylePicker.
-The style list can be filtered by a specific RealTracks/RealDrums/MIDI SuperTracks or RealTracks/MIDI SuperTracks in a certain number range.
-You can filter the style list by a specific Xtra Styles PAK.
-The dialog to select an Xtra Styles PAK has a button to take you to the PG Music website that shows information about Xtra Styles PAKs.
-The StylePicker can list all styles (including N/A styles) in the default display.
-The Set number display is improved, including sort by type and Xtra styles.

StyleMaker Improvements:

-The new MIDI velocity offset allows you to make styles with altered loudness for MIDI tracks.
-Styles can be saved with information like a memo, examples, genres, and more, which will be displayed in the StylePicker.
-You can import information from another style. This is useful when you are making a similar style.
-A style can have a huge number of RealTracks (up to 70!) because the StyleMaker now supports RealTracks multi/medley feature, which allows a single track to have up to 10 simultaneous playing of RealTracks.

Song Titles Browser Enhancement

-We’ve added 300 more song titles including requests from users, so there are now over 10,600 titles.
-The chord density filter is available, and it’s also displayed in the memo.
-The chord complexity filter is available.
