Rant as we get skunked by every passing snow event this next week. Perhaps as we do so our awful luck will change down here in the new Bakersfield.

By the way, Puget Sounders, none of you need to feel like the 1/10/17 event was unfair anymore. Now you get several better, more historic, more impactful, more interesting, more awesome events.

Any chance at a regime change back to warm anytime soon?

Portland isn't getting any snow because of your posts.

What do you know, more forecasted snow days turn into rain. Government Camp might just see a dump of rain on Monday if this continues, rather than the 2’ of snow forecasted.

I know I shouldn’t worship forecasts but it’s just looking worse and worse.

1.76” of rain forecasted on Monday. That’s like half of the Feb average! Would that be a record for Feb?

EDIT: It would not, but it would absolutely destroy the Feb 11 record of .78”.

It’s either sun or downpours at this point. Literally NorCal weather.

Yeah, that's totally the reason why.

Sounders, you better never complain about 1/10/17 again, I swear.

I think this is still very relevant.

Didn’t you miss a day of school this week due to snow?

Yes, mostly due to ice. Still, a far cry from the 10+ inches seen to our south and the 20+ seem to our north.
