Yeah, another question thread. I get it. This one's less of a downer, so there's that. 

 

Which weather event stood out as the most impressive that you have personally experienced here in the West?

 

For me it's a tie between the 1/10/17 snowstorm (15-20 inches in a 10 hour period, we get it...), and the December 2008 snow event series.

Windstorm off Hippa Island in July of 2017. Was on a relatively small boat on the open water in 50-60kt gusts. Fun stuff, much better than 95 degree heat with face melting humidity.

One day driving through Arizona during monsoon season. All of a sudden it started to pour rain. After a while we could see the road going from completely wet to completely dry ahead of us. The rain immediately stopped once we reached the dry area.

It was December (I think it was 1997). I woke up and it was 39 degrees and a light drizzle was falling. By the time the sun went down, it was up to 43 degrees and still a light drizzle falling. (It never let up all day)

This was the first time I had ever experienced this in the winter in the Willamette Valley. Truly memorable!
