  1. Back in the states and home now. Iceland is a pretty incredible place. We happened to be there during an unusually cold and snowy period as well which added to the climate shock.

  2. Ended up with about 16 inches from the storm. With our existing 5-8 inches on the ground, it adds up to... A whole lotta snow. Makes our little neighborhood seem like it should be in the mountains. Our golden is absolutely loving her first experience with the snow. She can't get enough!

  8. One of my chickens died yesterday and it was my fault. We always give them treats like smashed up chips in the bottom of the bag, I shake the bag and they come running up to the house or out of the woods. Yesterday I gave them a bunch of smashed up tortilla chips like I always do. I was doing yard work and I kept hearing a weird sound like weezing and found that one of the smaller hens was struggling to breath. Long story short she ate the ships to fast and didn't drink water and she choked to death. I tried everything I could in a panic trying to fix her, held her upside down tapping her back, rubbed her neck and throat area, stuck a small clear tube down her throat gently blowing air into her lungs to try and clear the blockage. Kept her alive for 45 minutes pumping air into her lungs. Never have I experienced anything like this. When I was holding her upside down I got a massive amount of small smashed up chips out of her . I know it's just a chicken and I might sound dumb but they are pets to us not live stock. 10 years ago I would of just killed it and not blinked but I've become very sensitive to death the last few years and this was my fault . Sorry for long post but I had to tell someone the story.

  10. The weather here in Viet Nam in January has been absolutely perfect compared to last September. Mid-70s to low 80s with low humidity. This is our stay at the Coastal City of Nha Trang. At one point last night it got real windy and broke stuff

  19. I set up a led light bar at cabin to shine at night to watch the snow. We had 1 mild day last week then it stayed below freezing the rest of the week.

  20. Shout out to my big brother on his 44th birthday. He used to wake me up in 1st grade to watch street lights and listen to his weather radio for NWS updates which started my weather interest. He also introduced me to the forum 8 or 9 years ago which my wife wishes never happened. He's watching the Huskies game but he'll find this eventually. Love you man

  21. Hello everyone. I have been a long time lurker on this forum and I am hoping for these model outputs do trend snowier because this will be my last winter in the PNW. I appreciate all of the model analysis and information you guys have provided. I have learned alot from all of you guys.

  22. Way premature and almost certainly a death blow to this happening, but some food for thought! Looking like a potential opportunity for SEA/PDX to pull off the rarest of the rare and score subfreezing highs in December, January, and February. Last time that that happened for PDX was 1978-79. Last time for SEA was 1949-50. And the two have actually never both pulled it off in the same winter in the airport era.

  23. It is straight up dumping snow. We are up to 3.25 inches already. Most models showed us getting between 1-3 inches by midnight. Latest zone forecast update about 10 mins ago now calling for 10-14 inches, up from 8-12.

  27. So I was talking to my boss about where he gets his weather info and I told him about my meteorological hobby. Our job is very influenced by the weather being a storm water filtration company. He wants me to give him weather forecasts for our sites as part of my job 2 times a week. I’m thinking I want to get a subscription to pivotal or weatherbell…which one would you guys recommend?

  30. Winter storm warning for 6-15 inches. 18z GFS has finally got the axis placement closer to the other models and nails me with 20 inches. 18z RGEM was at 22 inches and 18z Euro was at 17. It was dumping snow for a little while but has lightened up a bit now. Looks like a couple inches already but the big stuff will be rolling through tomorrow morning. Thundersnow and 2-3 inch/hr rates are possible by then. It should be a doozy.

  31. Not my pic but this is from 2 years ago in Japan after a late snowstorm, what I would give to experience UW's cherry blossoms during peak bloom with snowfall around here. The aesthetic even has a dedicated name for it called hanabie or "flower chilling", the phenomenon of flowers blooming during bitter cold. Something incredibly serene and calming to see the pink hues mix in with the white glow of snow. It'll be on the bucket list to experience snowy Japanese winters and springs one day.

  32. This was outside my motel room in Flagstaff last week, before the latest storms. Locals said it's been years since there was this much on the ground. Wonder what they are saying now?

  33. I just completed my PhD last summer, part of which is focused on the history of the Okanogan Lobe (The Puget Lobe's neighbor east of the Cascades) (https://digital.lib.washington.edu/researchworks/handle/1773/49189). From my perspective, we are still in the very early stages of understanding the Cordilleran Ice Sheet. Weather and climate during the glaciation and deglaciation is a big question mark... but it was obviously much colder and/or much snowier for glaciers to have grown to the extent they did. Part of the reason I'm on this forum is to learn more about weather and climate in this region to understand the geologic history of the ice sheets.

  34. This is the first snowstorm I’ve experienced not at home. This definitely doesn’t feel the same as being able to experience this with friends and the forum and seeing posts all over social media as well as videos of cars sliding everywhere, but this is still pretty darn magical! Some pictures of downtown Roslyn. 5.5” and counting.

  36. I haven’t been following all the posts here recently, but I will say the fact that Gradient Keeper is posting again is an excellent sign for cold and snow upcoming.
