  1. 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.

  2. Our first 70F day today! It is currently 72F and dead calm. Amazing. Edit: Ended up being a record 75F today breaking the record of 74F set in 2013

  5. April was a wet month and May looks to start wet. NWS Kansas City Here at the home office on the Pleasant Hill, our 2.67" yesterday put us at 5.91" for the month of April. That's good enough for 5th place. 1st place is 2017 with 6.33." #AlmostMadeIt #IfYouAintFirstYourLast. #mowx

  6. I remember one time I was probably 13 or 14 camping with my family over in entiat area when we had a huge thunderstorm move through. Had been 100-105 degrees the last couple days before that...storm rolled through with thousands of strikes on all around us and even on the ridges above us. Didn’t rain at all and I remember it being hot still even though it was like 10PM with a huge thunderstorm rolling through the area. That thunderstorm and the storm that moved through the Seattle area on September 7th 2019 we’re probably some of the best I’ve seen.

  7. US Air Force Admit They Can Control the Weather | Covert Geopolitics The US Air Force and DARPA would like us to believe that they have stopped using HAARP in Alaska for research and experiment. Even then, we all know that there are other HAARP systems out there in the form of radar communication and surveillance systems that are rigged on top of mobile platforms that are deployable in any international waters around the world. All they need to do is twist a knob to change the frequency of the main wave to the microwave range for a modulated frequency [FM] broadcast, and increase the

  8. Quite dry at DSM. 1.28" for April which is only 33% of normal 3.86". Only mowed my lawn once, usually half dozen or so most years.

  9. I know of a great little cabin right on the lake that is completely disconnected from the online mania! No cell service, no WiFi, no satellite, and no people around you! Just lots of fishing off the dock and seeing/listening to the wildlife...It was great!

  11. That sounds absolutely amazing. I haven’t been to Lake Chelan since I was 8 years old, but it’s one of my distinct childhood memories from that time.

  16. Only have to go back to 2016 for a drier April in the Snoqualmie Valley. And April of 1951, 1956, and 2004 were all much drier than this month.

  22. Not exactly something Portlanders and frankly, most of Oregon wants to see heading into the fire season. I hadn’t realize it until I read the article, but precip for PDX this month is PATHETIC. overall, even the entire region is drier than normal for the month. https://cliffmass.blogspot.com/2021/04/extremely-dry-conditions-hit-pacific.html?fbclid=IwAR38MfK7JMeyAezZrk6xEUiX4O8HxspTpYzEPHr4d1LSo3zqnCp9VFnJ68k&m=1

  25. The fact that they say researching and experimenting sort of implies that they don't have complete control over anything bigger than cloud seeding. Forget larger scale weather events, or entire low pressure systems.

  26. I think it’s been about 6 or 7 years since I’ve actually went myself...have probably been about 5 times in my life. It’s definitely one of the coolest things about Washington state. Haven’t been farther north than 25 mile creek state park....about 1/3 of the way up the lake. Really need to get all the way out to far side of the lake out in Stehekin.

  29. Foggy morning Lincoln City Past three days were absolutely beautiful though! Sunrises with the full moon setting on the water and sunsets that painted the sky that made your jaw drop. Each one unique. Sadly I must head home today

  31. I wish but money is tight this year. We’re in the early stages of planning a family trip out to Lake Chelan next year, though. In which case we’d probably be in Seattle a few days, at least. And yeah, last summer we had planned a trip out there but cancelled it because of covid-19.

  32. Pretty much everything else.... things like romaine lettuce, zucchini, celery, carrots, beans, potatoes, squash, and radishes. We have even tried peppers with some success although that is more dependent on the summer weather which has recently been more favorable. Peppers like warmth of course.

  33. Oh gawd. I guess 1992/93, 1998/99, and 2016/17 are loose matches? Most of the best shear stress matches are +ENSO, with the exception of 2016/17. Multiyear +ENSO followed by -ENSO isn’t a frequent combination, and the ones that immediately come to mind such as 1988/89, 1995/96, etc, aren’t good analogs from any other standpoint except for that.

  40. Figured you’d have already hit 80 there by now...we’ve already hit 80 once this year about 10 days ago.

  41. 2016-17 actually doesn’t seem like a bad analog. It had a developing Niña, premature flip to +QBO, and was fairly recent as opposed to old analogs where the Hadley Cells weren’t as wide as they are at present.
