  1. 1.05" of rainfall/hail yesterday afternoon/evening with the strong storms that moved through here before changing to heavy snowfall around midnight. Measured 7" this morning! Pretty incredible for May 8th. Currently 28F.

  2. Getting married tomorrow so that’s why I’ve not been around a ton of late. Looks like we are about 68F out there and are ready for some much-needed rainfall overnight.

  3. Well I haven't been around in a while. Been a little, erm, preoccupied. Hope everyone's enjoying the sunshine and warmth lately! I'll be in Arizona for the weekend, and hopeful I don't melt!

  4. For everywhere wondering/speculating about where I have been, I am very flattered We have been on a road trip to Grand Teton and Yellowstone this week. Took a nice week off before starting a new job later this month. It’s been gorgeous. Amazingly chilly out this way despite how warm it has been closer to the coast. It has snowed at some point the last 4 days, and most mornings have been in the teens. The extremely boring weather back home is part of the reason I haven’t posted much, but it’s also really nice just to unplug for several days and enjoy nature. Will be back in town

  6. What an absolute perfect day to be at the lake. Went to exercise at Seward Park after work and it was stunning. Also went for another bout of exercise before the sun set at Jefferson Park with a wonderful sun halo but forgot to took some pictures.

  7. Most likely a bear. They are very quiet when they walk. My neighborhood has around 40 black bears at any given time and starting around Memorial day through Labor day you see one almost every day if you do a dog walk early in the morning. These Bears don't even acknowledge you when you are near them. I have my black Labrador off leash and he just stares at them. Most of these pictures I am less than 50' from the bears.

  9. I think Washington had a great display the otehr day, this was on my way into/and at work. I had to stop and pull over at the river. Was only the 2nd time I've seen anything other than a standard halo/sun dogs. No apologies about the logo haha, and Facebook really crapped on the quality too :0

  13. If you go to Lake Chelan, take the boat to Stehekin and stay a couple of days. No TV, phone, or internet. My wife and I go every year. You can camp, stay at the main lodge at the dock, or rent a house. The only cars are for the few locals that live there. We rent bikes and bike to the falls and the bakery, though there are more places beyond there. Great scenery.

  14. Good morning from Pinetop, AZ where the elevation is about 7,200 ft. It’s a cool, crisp 48F this morning. Yesterday, was a very breezy day up in the mountains while in the valley it warmed into the 90’s. The temp topped out at 65F up here under prestige blue skies. I’ve never been up in the White Mountains in eastern AZ so this was a first and I will say that I’m impressed with what I’ve seen. The forests in this region are thicker and there are more pines than in any part of this state. It sorta reminds me of places that I’ve been to up in the Northwoods of Wisconsin to be honest. It f

  16. It was pretty spectacular here although I got dumped on while taking this shot (as you can see by all the raindrops on the lens). Yesterday was a fun day in general. Warmest day of the month so far at 67F (way warmer than the 61F from Wednesday) and strongest May wind gust in more than a decade at 33 mph. Then the storm moved through and provided this sunset. I wish I'd gotten out to the water just a few minutes earlier because when the sun was still up in the sky the light was incredible.

  28. Had a family of Cougars walking past my driveway sensor at 1am last year...I had mostly stopped getting up to look when it would go off in the middle of the night since it would always be deer setting it off. But that time I decided to get up and look and for a second I thought I was dreaming but nope it was mom and her at least 3 young adult fully grown children walking past the sensor all in a line...I could not get back to sleep since I was so excited about what I had seen!

  29. We have been eating outside on the deck for nearly a week now...I doubt we will see another April this nice again for a very long time! Dogs have been stoked since they are not allowed in the kitchen so dinner time begging is extremely rare!

  30. 3.5 inches of snow fell here in my part of KC. Started snowing at 3:30 am and coated grass, cars, and elevated areas. Stuck to everything except the streets. (streets might have gotten slushy for a bit when that heavy band moved through) KCI needed 2.8 inches to set an all time record for April 20th,I think they made it. Now.....at 12:05, barely can tell it snowed. Almost totally gone. The ole April sun angle got to it. What a morning!

  33. Picked up 3.3" of rain at my house the last couple of days in strong storms with some small hail, but nothing particularly severe. We did score a tornado watch here for the first time since 2019 (I assume - none in 2020), but the conditions were pretty marginal I thought. Kind of like the MLB player that breaks his 0 for 20 hitless streak by hitting a soft popup that nobody gets to. Still, better than a tornado grand slam for sure...lol

  37. 1 year ago today we had some pretty awesome thunderstorms roll through the area. Yesterday also was the anniversary of the 5/4/17 storms. Don’t have any photos or videos of 2017 but do have some of 2020. Last 2 photos were taken about 20 minutes apart...was pretty epic with the almost full moon shining above the storms.

  38. Here's some pics I found on my phone from a good storm back in Auf 2013. Had about 3-6" of hail on the level. It stuck around for almost 48 hours. The last picture was the hail the following day in my backyard still.

  39. Here are some more short vids and pics from my trip. Thursday and Friday were the best days weather wise. Spending time along the ocean is such a treat when HP is over the region in the spring. The locals say June-Oct is prime time as one would expect to see. The only issue I have with Cali living, is the traffic and pricy gas ($4.20/ gal regular)! It ain’t cheap living there.

  40. Wedding went off without a hitch! And it didn't rain on us, it came through overnight! Looks like Springfield managed to pick up a half inch of rain but the airport only had 0.33 good lord what a disaster. And it looks like more warmer and drier than normal weather on the way...shocker.

  42. Spokane still looking like a possible place to get our next house. Whoever lives here next will surely be surprised at the deer activity we get from week to week up the hill. It's like their second home. Getting the house cleaned up a bit and may fix a couple things before getting on the market. Homes have gone up in value since moving here in 2012. I have checked out and considered Montana a few times but eastern Washington has overall a similar climate to my current one. And there is so much stuff in Spokane, chances are the home we end up choosing will be within a walk distance f

  43. Measurement has since been updated to 3.5in. In Warrensburg snowfall never exceeded 1in. The weather observer at KCI measured 3.2" around the time the snow was wrapping up, so today is officially the largest snowfall this late into spring on record in Kansas City (previous record was 2.7" on this date in 1992). It is also tied for the 10th latest snowfall on record. 10:45 AM · Apr 20, 2021·Twitter Web App 69 Retweets
