  1. This is both heartless and manages to miss the point. Some of us truly care about our native vegetation, native wildlife, our glaciers, the outdoor activities that make the PNW the PNW. You can’t just say “it is what it is” and expect people with actual attachments to our area to think that’s logical. Coastal glaciated mountain range, that’s as rare and epic as it comes in the contiguous US. Massive glaciated volcanos. Orca pods and salmon runs. Every time you post about this you act like things change and that’s that, which is true, but you ignore what will be lost and what will suffer. Will the western Toad pollywogs my kids found at our little lake today still be here in 30 years? Will the ferry captain still be calling out Orca sightings? Will we still hear the Pikas chirping in the rocks at Mt Rainier? If you say who cares, so be it. But it’s so f U c k Ed for you to combat people on this.

  2. I was going to go to the Mowich area of MRNP, but I was looking at my notes and realized I had not hiked on the east side in 10 years! Wow time flies. So I spent some time at Sunrise and did a hike up to the Fremont Lookout and Burroughs Mountain. It was beautiful, and not a lot of people. In fact there was nobody else at the lookout.

  5. Topped out at 89 today. A bit too warm for my liking but it was really good weather for my son's first birthday party at Lake Wilderness. I'd say it was a success!

  7. Tim isn't wrong. Your forecast has been completely opposite of reality from what you predicted since early June. I know you have a high reputation to maintain on here but just own it and move on.

  8. Beautiful day on Hyalite today. Picked up about 0.5" of rainfall over the last few days and today blue skies. Heat and likely smoke return tomorrow unfortunately.

  10. Love it how the 2 people trying to downplay how warm it’s been this summer live thousands of miles away and aren’t actually even experiencing it.

  11. It's rained for the last 6 hours non stop. The longest duration of precip in several months. I think April 24th but could have been before that.

  12. It was so gross in Montana with all the smoke and temperature pushing 96* in locations. Caught a break Wyoming though (Devils Tower area). Got to enjoy Close Encounters in the KOA theater smoke free . Back home and currently 79*

  14. Stunning day. Mostly cloudy with some morning drizzle, followed by late afternoon clearing and a high of just 73. Absolutely wonderful out.

  16. From last nights storm. Produced some widespread large hail.... I can't find it now but saw a video near Red Lake of sideways hail storm pummeling a building, anything short of steel roofs and siding was probably getting shredded. Somehow I ended up with nothing more than a couple distant rumbles of thunder and a few raindrops as the storms parted over Lake of the Woods.

  20. It was a nice day to buy a boat in Renton and sit in traffic all the way back north! It’s time to move on from the 1980’s Bayliner and move on up to a 1990’s Sea Ray! Luckily it also has a cassette deck in it so I can continue to rock my MC Hammer cassette on the water!

  24. Thanks. I’m being serious. I started working for the USFS earlier this year and they give all employees an opportunity to get their red card and serve in backup fire crews if they pass the training and a few physical tests. I figured why not.

  25. Security camera footage of our portable basketball hoop (which I should have taken down before the storm hit) getting blown into the house during the storm last night… thankfully it missed hitting my truck as it fell. Front gutter will need to be replaced but it could have been worse. FullSizeRender.mov

  26. I just returned from a trip to Chadron State Park and then a couple of days out in Yellowstone. Yellowstone absolutely blew me away! Just crazy to see such a different landscape up close. The Grand Tetons still had some snow at the summits. We also ran into a hailstorm that covered the roads and hillsides in pea sized hail and dropped the temps from 81 to 46 degrees!

  31. You know exactly what you do and it makes me hesitant to ever post here. Admittedly, I don’t have much in the way of weather knowledge to add anyways. If its sunny only in town, you post the North Bend webcam and ignore our area. If it’s only sunny in our area, you post photos of our area and ignore the clouds in town. Tale as old as time.

  33. Went to Pamelia Lake, one of the few, as of now, unburned places in the Mt. Jefferson Wilderness. Nice easy hike. My 4 year old made it up and back easily.

  34. If you take away the 7 hottest days of the summer (so far) and then only look at the coolest station relative to average in the entire region, then it's actually only been kind of reasonably warm you guys. Duh.

  38. It’s July freaking 9th. How would you feel if someone was saying the calls for a cold rest of the winter were overblown on January 9th, following an all time record cold outbreak in late December and a solidly colder than average January to date with nothing but near to below average weather on the horizon.

  41. Come on Tim, this is just nihilism with a layer of Zen makeup. If we knew for months in advance that a 6 mile diameter meteor was headed towards us, would you say we shouldn't try to deflect it or break it up because it's natural and happened before 66 million years ago? And if you think we should try to do something in that scenario, why would it be any different for climate change and environmental degradation if we thought we could do something about it? Of course the planet will recover just fine in a relative geological blink almost no matter what do, but what most people care about is maintaining conditions to continue prosperous and healthy human civilization long into the future.

  42. I just don't know what your point is with anything you've been posting. That the multi-decade trend of warming could potentially reverse itself in the future, backed with no evidence at all - a point so obvious that you could say that about literally any trend ever observed in history because of how time works (the future hasn't happened yet, therefore we can't be certain about what will occur)? Here's the facts about summers here: - They've seen an overall warming trend that goes back all the way to the beginning of observed records in the PNW starting in the 1800s - That trend has accelerated in the last 40ish years - There have been blips in that trend along the way, sometimes lasting for a decade+, see the 1950s - 2010 was a cooler and cloudier summer than 2009, then in the decade since then we've seen a bunch of even warmer and even sunnier summers - The marine layer has been much less prevalent since 2012, something clear even to casual observers living here The ad hominem is because it seems like your primary motivation with this is to try to downplay the warmth we've been seeing. If we had just seen the coldest December ever observed by Europeans that included the most intense cold snap ever recorded with subzero highs in places on the west side, followed by another week of cold but not record breaking conditions, I doubt you'd be reacting like this.
