  1. Gorge run today. Started out at the Vista House where 60-70mph winds nearly claimed my hat. Coldest windchill I've ever personally experienced, guesstimating it was around -10. Went down to the waterfall corridor and not surprisingly it got progressively more frozen the further east you went. Horsetail was completely frozen over at the basin. Also came across some snapped trees along the trail in the area near Wahkeena Falls. Wrapped up in Hood River for dinner with the kickass sunset and temps around 12.

  2. Well since we are on the subject…My dad passed away peacefully last evening. Rough stuff but both my sister and I have an odd calmness over us, he battled so many health issues since the late 1980’s which escalated in the early 2000’s and then nailed him hardcore in early August…Knowing he is no longer in pain (pain that I’m sure many people will never experience) is very calming. Definitely the strongest person I will ever be around when it comes to battling every infection that tried to get him for so many years, but he battled on and tried his hardest to not have it effect his life too much. One of the last things we talked about on Saturday when he was still semi coherent at the hospital was the Christmas lights I put up on the house and I told him that he taught me everything I know about exterior illumination as I was showing him pictures of my lit up house. I still remember being about 5 years old and helping him put up the Christmas lights, they were those big bulbed multi colored lights, it felt so magical helping him and seeing them light up the house knowing Santa was going to come now since he could see those bright lights! I always think of those times when I am putting up the lights that now my kids are helping me with!

  3. Said goodbye to our 17-year old lab today. He was such a great companion for my sons growing up. So many adventures. He has been on every mountain peak around here. Sad day... but it was time. Hopefully he is chasing deer in a field in heaven now.

  6. Rooster Rock state park, Wahkeenah, Multnomah, Oneonta and Horsetail. The amount of ice on the edge of the Columbia at Rooster Rock was the most I’ve ever seen personally. The falls and their creeks were choked with ice as well. Temps were around 15 out there this afternoon.

  9. It had melted a fair bit by sunrise. We ended up with 4”. Lots of tree damage on the deciduous trees. Power, internet, cable, and cell phones have been down most of the day here. Seems like things are coming back online now.

  10. Thanks @SilverFallsAndrew for coming and hanging out this morning. I don’t get a chance to interact with people since I’m stuck at home all the time. Truly a great friend and a reason I know we would have a blast whenever we do some sort of forum meetup. I’d love for any of y’all to stop by and see what it’s like here in the south valley. @Meatyorologist had the chance to see how unique and different this area is with its terrain profile and the furthest north extent of the empty west. Nice and chilly morning, currently 47F with increasing clouds.

  14. Apologies people can’t be as smart and as well informed as you are. as for the “worst of the worst”. It doesn’t seem any different than any other event. but you clearly know best.

  15. And I apologize for my meltdown earlier. My bad day doesn't need to be projected onto y'all. I truly hope folks get snow and get to post amazing snow photos. Esp @MR.SNOWMIZER @snow_wizard @SilverFallsAndrew @TT-SEA @Meatyorologist @MossMan @Deweydog @Cold Snap and @iFred plus lots of others. Y'all are a class act and I'm truly grateful for this forum.

  16. Fine. I’ve been lurking here for years. I live in Shoreline and do hyperlocal forecasting for friends between the ship canal and Everett since about 2018. I also work with mutual aid groups to help homeless communities get prepared for bad weather. I moved from Mississippi where I was into tornado and hurricane prediction and fell in love with Seattle weather during 2008 when I lived on Cap Hill. I was a UW grad student and therefore a Mass-hole for several years as I learned the region’s dynamics. I definitely have my favorite and not-favorite posters on this forum, too. I’ll let you guess who. I always thought it’d be bad luck to create an account preceding a possible snow event but never got around to it otherwise. So if this event busts, I blame Garfield.

  21. Probably time for me to go into why I was away for so long earlier this year. A big part of it was major health problems and the deaths of close family members including my mom and father in law. Also a number of other family members and a friend. A really terrible year in that regard. In the midst of all of this the weather has become slightly less of an obsession for me, and I feel I might have more clarity on the subject than I have in a long due to it being a less emotional thing for me at this point. We shall see how that plays out. I also want to bring up the fact that the deterioration of my relationship with Jesse on here was also really making me depressed earlier in the year. I really want to avoid all of that this season.

  23. Had a beautiful week in the Canadian Rockies visiting Banff and Yoho NPs. Had some very low snow levels on Monday, down around 5500', and gradually warmed and cleared in the days since. Amazing views everywhere you look!

  24. Amazing weather today, I think it was nature's gift to me for my 59th bday. Got pretty good conditions to climb Mount Hood, although the winds at the summit were around 40mph, forecast was calling for winds in the 20s which unfortunately did not verify. Here's a photo dump from our climb, sadly my camera fogged up little bit, so all of the photos are slightly blurry.

  31. Your overbearing need to try and preach and tell people how to feel or interpret things is kind of annoying honestly. The forum is fine the way it is. We don’t need your long monologues anyways.

  32. Downtown Juneau from the cruise ship dock as of 15 minutes ago. Love watching the ice gulleys on Mt Juneau form in winter. Later in winter its south aspect makes it not form up as easily.

  33. Just had a very intense snow shower move through. Looks like it's wrapping up, but it ended up dropping about 0.5" with some truly massive snowflakes up over 2" in diameter. It was hard to measure depth because the snowflakes themselves created such large variations. Temperature is down to 33F, but snow is melting very quickly now that it has let up.

  39. Leave the politics or politically themed reminiscing to the designated garbage pit on the forum. I don't need to hear how some of you think Viewpoint A is justified because Historical Person B was actually a radical terrorist sent by the the Soviet Union to destroy America for the right kind of American. Nor do I need to hear your counter point to Viewpoint A because 95% of us here already know what your counterpoint is going to be and 99% of us know that it will not do a damn thing but piss more people off.

  40. For some reason our run of misfortune just continues unabated. About an hour ago our son had his first seizure in years, and last week our dentist, who we have been going to for years just up and died. This guy would have been one of the last people on anyone's list to die so young. I had some serious marathon sessions with this guy in the dentists chair. Anyway my son is fine now, and that makes six people who are either family, friends, or close acquaintances to die in the past three months.

  41. Wanted to tell y’all how much you mean to me. Im having a really bad night cognitively and it’s getting worse. Im laying in the bed trting to stay positive but it’s not easy. The roller coaster ride of the models will be fun to follow as always. Thanks so very much to all of you. I keep having so many seizures and I’m genuinely scared. I hope that y’all get a huge snow event. Something truly unforgettable. I’m gonna think positively for you. @MR.SNOWMIZER @SilverFallsAndrew @Gradient Keeper @MossMan @Cold Snap @Phil @TT-SEA @iFred @Meatyorologist @Deweydog @snow_wizard Plus everyone I’m forgetting cuz of my terrible memory. Thank all of y’all so very much for teaching me so much more than I ever thought possible. For putting up with me. You’re truly class acts, all of you. Just really worried about my brain right now. Laying down and seeing if it helps and if the neurostimulator can work.

  42. Well my dog just died and it really sucks because we couldn’t be there with him when he died. The person that was watching him took him to the emergency room and next thing we know we are getting a FaceTime from her and it’s of the vet putting him down. Just really sucks that we couldn’t be there for his death and we almost considered not going on this trip because he was having problems the other night right before we left. Just glad he’s in a better place now because it seemed like he had been suffering the past week.

  43. Down to 17 here. It has been one to remember! I am not sure I have experienced this dry of snow before in my town. It has been pleasantly easy to drive in as well. Kids have been loving sledding each day too.

  45. This morning we said goodbye to our senior dog Ellie. I wish every dog could be just like her when it came to health…16 years and she never really had a health issue at all until last week when she started declining rapidly with no clear answers as why other than time finally caught up to her. Pretty incredible! This was her at 14 years old running like she is 2yrs old in the snow in that picture!
