  1. Few more orcas photos. Was pretty awesome hiking up the mountain to find a foot of snow still on the ground. Not the most I’ve seen up there but still really cool. Will be back a couple times next winter hopefully they’ve got an even bigger snowpack next time.

  2. It was very fitting that the work van hit 100k miles exactly at the summit of Snoqualmie Pass today. I don’t even know how many hundreds of times I have gone over the pass over the last 6yrs transporting thousands of animals with that van...In every weather condition there is! My volunteer assistant riding with me today took this pic when I was at 99,999miles! Super nice morning! Too bad it went downhill so quickly. Raining and 44 currently, .14” so far on the day.

  3. Communism and it's problematic ideology is about more than just a difference of economies. All the same, globalist puppets like Biden are working towards the "Chinese model" where the masses are controlled by the elite class. Similar was the former USSR. Moves that put others in control of our fate (OPEC+ for instance) are a step in that direction and anti-American.

  4. Do you have any idea what this means? In lament terms, it basically solidifies the fact that the "cartel" group called OPEC now is in a perfect position to destroy any farther opportunities of keeping prices low. When Trump was in office he knew D**n well that whoever controls the oil supply, controls their nations national security and will drive gas prices low! Russia needs oil to be above $50/bbl to be profitable, the UAE needs it at $20 so they weren't terribly effected. This was a great play by Trump because Russia was loosing billions of dollars, esp in the nat gas play selling nat g

  5. BTW....the ECMWF extracted data shows an average low of 34 for SEA the next 10 days. Normal is about 38.5. With the exception of one warm day being shown almost all of the max temps are below normal also.

  7. I'm sorry, but if the current terminology is confusing to you then you're just dumb. "Plain language headlines", so does that mean an actual headline or just an announcement on the website or social media?

  8. Once again, sw Iowa is another world compared to east-central Iowa. SW Iowa has already soared into the 60s again this morning while we are still in the 30s... about ten degrees behind yesterday's rise.

  9. There are a number of inaccuracies in that article. For one, a “shutdown” of the GS (whatever that means) didn’t lead to a “15°C cooling in Europe” at the start of the Holocene. LOL. In fact the GS itself isn’t all that important for European climate..much like the PNW it’s merely the presence of the ocean upstream that moderates the climate. Further, there’s no evidence for these massive freshwater pulses that have supposedly “shut down” the Gulf Stream. There is, however, plenty of evidence (both via proxies and observationally) that significant -NAO regimes can and have crippled t

  10. I work for a nonprofit animal rescue/adoption organization, we transfer in healthy adoptable dogs and cats from overcrowded open intake shelters across the state and country, fully vet them including spaying/neutering and then they go up for adoption. I my job is organizing all of the ground and air transfers including going on location (with the in state transfers) to transport them.

  11. The 18z parallel shows an Arctic outbreak around day 10. The progression is a lot like the 12z, but the details are better. It shows some lows in the teens in some places. I would love to see that!

  13. I didn't know what you were talking about, then I saw a tweet from NWS Hastings. How much simpler do we need to make things? My gosh. The dumbing down of America continues. If you can't figure out this terminology, you should probably pay more attention in English classes. I showed this to one of our English teachers and she thought it was a joke.

  15. 12Z ECMWF says we might score some 60s on a weekend next week. That would be nice.

  16. This morning's Euro is even colder over here Friday than it is today. The snow cover and east flow off the lakes is really hurting us.

  17. This morning's Euro has mid 70s up to Omaha Tuesday. Wednesday it has a few spots approaching 80º. Other models are quicker with the front and would be much less warm in NE Wednesday.

  18. I'm a huge fan of spring time frost. There are some years we get 30+ mins of 32 or below in March / April. That usually happens in the midst of very favorable regimes when looking at the big picture.

  19. I disagree. The CPC maps are not anything close to normal. Much less gloom and colder nights than normal.

  25. Still have a few big piles around town and I snapped this pic when it was 70 this afternoon. It’s felt bizarre to have some very warm weather and turn around there’s still patches of snow.

  26. I’m all for green energy and waste-to-energy. In fact, I’m in the process of sourcing funding for a hydrogen waste energy project here in the US. Trump was looking out for the best interests of America and not the global elite oil tycoons. If he was still in office, I can bet with confidence oil would not be trading at $60+ per barrel. The reason why there was a glut of oil in March/April of last year was because demand tanked due to the pandemic and the costs storing the oil was significantly more. Traders sold the oil at a loss so they wouldn’t carry the storage costs. That w

  27. I could be mistaken but I don’t think they would have been a dominant valley floor species, even pre-settlement. They tend to like well drained, rocky slopes. Preferably south or west facing in the more northerly parts of their range.

  28. Madrones grow in coastal locations well on up the Hood Canal and Puget sound to the Straits of Juan de Fuca and Georgia. There are a ton of them in the lower elevation woods around Port Townsend. They seem to be pretty rare in the immediate I-5 corridor until you get south of Eugene. Although there are some patches along the lower Columbia near Kalama.

  31. Crazy start of March of almost 70 degrees the past few days. For today low was 30 and the high looks like will be 67 again. Will be back with some rain tomorrow though.

  33. The first half of the month could be slightly drier than average. But I suspect the second half will more than compensate for that.

  34. It interesting the GFS operational and parallel are pretty similar around day 6, but from there on the two pieces of high pressure that the parallel turns into a GOA block are handled differently by the operational. It wouldn't be too shocking to see a cold snap around mid month.

  36. Not sure who ever said that. Drier than average might happen though. 15-day precip anomaly per the 12Z EPS... a stormy pattern in CA often means western WA is drier than normal.

  37. Won’t have to worry about any sustained warmth or ridging with this background state going as strong as it is. Minus a couple days here and there, it’s a sea of cooler than average for the foreseeable future.

  40. 12z EPS has much lower heights in the 7-10 day range than the operational Euro. More in line with the GFS and its ensembles.

  43. Guess we’ll have to wait and see then. It is just one run. Hopefully the next couple runs go back to a wetter solution - if they don’t, then that’ll be an unfavorable trend.

  47. Currently 68.2 in my backyard. Might crack 70 today! 2 weeks ago, I dropped down to -24 and some spots in the area were -30. Only a 100 degree difference in 2 weeks!

  48. I'm kind of torn now. I am nearly in spring mode because I have flowers coming up already. One last blizzard would be kinda nice, but after the forecasted high of 60 on Tuesday.... Ugh

  49. "Mid March Madness"...the pattern is to ramp up and turn very active post 10th and there is a decent signal among the EPS/GEFS members that some late season snows are on the table. I believe the pattern is ripe for nature to spin up a powerhouse storm by mid month if things line up just right from the Plains up into the Northwoods. There is going to be a lot of late season cold lurking across the U.S./Canadian border and early Spring warmth will likely provide the fuel to produce a juicy system right around the 15th or so. 00z EPS...

  50. One of the perks of living up north is having to benefit from snow-on-snow events. It's very difficult to get them down here. The only winter in recent memory was the infamous 2013-14 season where it snowed almost every 2-3 days it seemed like. For the most part, they were 2-4", 3-6" events with a couple big ones around the New Year and in January. I agree, I don't care how they come so long we can generate a deep snow pack.
