What is your favorite winter of all?

 

Mine would no doubt be 2016-2017. Snow events for everyone down the I-5 corridor, that snowstorm on 1/10/17 for my area. A windstorm in April and October, one of the strongest east wind years I've experienced. Heavy rain in February, and several snow/ice events in December and January. A rundown of that year (most are estimations):

 

December 7th-10th: 1 inch of ice, 1.5 inches of snow

 

December 14th: 2.5 inches of snow

 

January 6th-8th: 0.75-1 inch of ice, 1 inch of snow

 

January 10th-11th: 15-20 inches of snow, occasional thunder and lightning

 

February 5th: 2 inches of rain

 

April 7th: 55-65 gusts, 78 gust pretty close by

 

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

 

2006-2007 would be on there too, as well as 2011-2012 (March storm dropped 11 inches IMBY, heavy rain in January, etc.)

08-09 - I lived in Yamhill County then so it wasn't screwed like the S Valley was.

 

18-19 - A 1 in 50 chance 20" snow event in late Feb...nuff said.

 

13-14 - Lived on the coast near Tillamook then.  Had a -10 reading in early Dec after some snow and then a foot of snow over 2 days in early Feb.

 

92-93 - I remember several smallish events during what was a cold winter.

Epic winter in the South Valley and Puget Sound, particularly the former (the videos of heavy snow are amazing). Also Central Oregon as well.

2009-10. Had at least 83” of snow that winter (didn’t measure several dustings/coatings/traces). Over 50” fell in just 12 days. And much more fell just N/NE of me.

5” of chowder on 12/5
23” blizzard on 12/20
1” on 1/3
7” of cold powder on 1/29
6” of chowder on 2/3
27” snowmageddon blizzard on 2/6.
14” with whiteout conditions on 2/10 to top it off. Winds gusting to 70mph with occasional lightning/thunder and zero visibility for six hours. My favorite storm of them all.

Yes, most significant event here since 1969.  If it had been Dec or Jan it would have been even more epic.

1997-98 - On December 6, a very strong storm brought 7-10 inches of rain overnight to Orange County. That's more than half of our yearly average. In Lake Forest, at the park near my house the creek got so high it washed away parts of the sidewalk far above. It rained so hard that night that it literally sounded like a waterfall from my window. This was an El Nino year and I think February was also extremely wet.

 

Another winter a storm brought a small tornado that damaged some apartments about half a mile from my house, but I don't remember the year.

My favorite winter was probably 16/17 which featured 2 13" storms in close proximity, with an insanely snowy January.

That said, I liked 15/16 because of one storm that dropped 19" in one day. The rest of the winter was forgettable but that storm sure wasn't.
This last winter had no major storms, but it had by far the most snowy days I've seen in a winter so it added up.

07/08 was my first year in Utah so the contrast from Oregon made it special.
