  1. I've been a part of several weather forums for the past 15 years and they more or less run the same. There is discussion among individuals with a large range in knowledge about weather and then there's also everyone's individual personality. I find the personality aspect of it brings a uniqueness that's outside just looking at weather that I feel helps to keep things light and fun.

  3. Station ordered! Got you a Acurite model 01528. I really like this station, simple and easy to read. It's been solid at my cabin. I'll pm you tracking when I get it. HAPPY BIRTHDAY when that day happen.

  4. I just experienced the craziest day of my life. Normal, routine doctor's visit quickly spiraled into a seven hour stay in the ER for a MRI scan to check for malignant tumors or multiple sclerosis. Thankfully nothing was detected and my eye problem was resolved with a steroid prescription. Also the models look fantastic. And I'm sore from all the catheters and laying in one position for a quarter of a day. I need sleep.

  5. Good morning, As you know, back in late December I decided to end my jovial "ranting" here among you soulless bastard's to focus on more personal matters. Well despite my better judgement I have chosen to share some major life news with you all, my gf has accepted an amazing offer from her employer that requires relocation. As such the offer comes with all expenses paid relocation overseas. As of August 3rd of this year, her and I will be living full time in Tampere, Finland, not only will this be a massive change but also a welcome change as she is originally from Finland an

  6. Good morning, Fresh new poster here, but I have been following these forums since Snowmageddon in '19. I work as an Emergency Manager for a city in King County, and I find a lot of the information shared here very useful-- and I've even learned a bit myself! Though NWS holds all the weight for us when making decisions that may impact City services, I can get ahead of the game coming to these forums. Some of the "pepto" maps you guys' share are pretty alarming at times though, and I do my best to refrain from sharing them with my Mayor so she doesn't lose it. It's all in good fun, though.

  7. Wow thanks guy's. I've been very fortunate the last few years and business has been incredible. I really enjoy helping and it really is a family on here. No other forum is like this place, I consider everyone on here a friend.

  8. I will make sure to post it when I get it set up!! Did you do to college? If so, then I will post a pic of the jersey with it if I have the jersey. Thank you so much. This brings tears to my eyes.

  10. Snow stopped a couple hours ago, but it lasted long enough to him give me 24 hours of snow, 9” of accumulation, and a high that topped out at 31F. In the afternoon I went out to Deception Pass where there was 12-14” of snow all the way down to the beach. I don’t know when they would have gotten more snow there. It was stunningly beautiful with seals and eagles enjoying the snow. Also kind of scary walking around as trees and branches were falling left and right. Oh, and I used Christmas lights to write “snow” in cursive back in December. It appears the calling card worked although it

  11. My front door in Troutdale this morning. Last night was incredible with 45-55 mph gusts for many hours. I'm on a hill around 300' directly facing east.

  12. Real quick before the show starts Just wanted to see it's been a blast this past week with riding all these models. I feel like we've hardly slept. One thing I appreciate is how you guys bring up the possibilities. Sure it may be fantasy a week out, but it's something to look out for cause you never know. Hate it when mets don't do that, but that's understandable. Appreciate all your passion guys! I feel like a kid on Christmas morning LETS GET IT!!!

  13. No one asked for a photo but I'm out here snow blowing for the umpteenth time over the last few days so why not! It's quite gorgeous out.

  14. Hey all. Been lurking for a few years. Thanks to all of you that are regularly posting maps. I grew up in the Kirkland/Bothell area but am now living in White Salmon, WA. Definitely a lot more exciting winters down here. Looking like we might be in for a bit of a cluster! Nice model riding with all of you. I was silent here, but dying on the inside. Hope everyone scores.

  15. I feel like this doesn’t have to said (or maybe it does)... enjoy these next few days! We wait for this kind of cold and potential snow for years. Especially us west siders. We are entering the time where we are going through what we dream of all year. Some of us will get pounded, some of us will get bent. Regardless the last week or 2 have been awesome model riding with you all. Rob is the MVP of this forum BTW. Homie puts in work for everyone’s viewing pleasure. I hope he gets a snow hurricane for his service

  18. @rabbitbarfis probably aware of it, but there are a couple big weather Discord communities out there. They’re ok-ish for tracking active events when they happen all the time, like living in the Midwest or on the Gulf Coast. They suck when things get boring or when you want to dig through old posts. As for “boomer tech in a Juul pod world”, it just works. I manage all of the infrastructure, I have backups, I don’t have to worry about the forum violating a weird ToS or being reliant on someone else’s platform. Also, the forum format just works out in collecting and categorizing our collecti

  21. This is a side-note to my wife who reads this forum when it snows: Thank you for being my Valentine for the past 35 years. I know I can be gruff sometimes now, but my heart is always in the right place as I know yours always is. Here's to 35 more years, baby!!!!!

  28. Good morning! I am very new here, but wanted to add my observations to the mix. I am in Yelm, Wa about 450' elevation, just started seeing flakes fall about 20 mins ago! No wind though. Seeing everyone's observations over the last week has been very educational and fun for me. Been a wild ride, watching the models. I hope everyone sees some snow and stays safe!

  30. I am looking forward to some chilly highs next week here in Spokane. IN OTHER NEWS - My wife and I just bought 3.5 acres up towards Colville WA. This will be the view from backyard in about a year from now. I assume next year there will be more snow as this has been a horrible year for snow in this area. Pictures taken about 5 days ago. Also, I have attached an image of the home we will be building -- Plans are drawn builder is pricing things out for us.

  31. Thanks folks, I am looking forward to being able to ideally post some accurate conditions. Logging them and comparing them to the EUG 5 min obs will be a lot of fun. I hope one day we can organise some place to hang out and learn about one another's personas face-to-face.

  32. Below freezing streak for my PWS has ended. Wednesday evening through Monday at noonish, impressive! Lowest temp was 18.8°F on Saturday morning. Measured 12 - 17” of snow on ground today, variable because of wind and compaction. Minor freezing rain accumulation on branches, it was quickly alternating between snow, sleet and freezing rain for hours this AM. Once I finished shoveling my driveway I watched a bobcat walk up the cleared driveway, it was incredible! He’s been hanging out around house for a couple hours now.

  33. Just amazing night! Crunching snow, people still out sledding, walking, talking, laughing, fire pits in the street. Some Christmas lights still up and heavy snow banks and caked yards, houses, and trees. And kids still going strong...

  34. Average measurements of 8" in the driveway and 9" on the grass here in North Seattle with continued snow. It's f*cking incredible out.

  35. Hi all! I've been lurking here for the last few days, silently reveling in all the models and wringing my hands over snowfall totals with all of you. So I decided to register and join in! I'm not as well-versed in the science behind it (my degree is in zoology/conservation biology) so I'm still soaking up all the details and hows and whys, but I've always been intrigued by extreme weather - and like many Pacific NW natives, a sucker for a snowstorm. I'm in Bellevue, WA, up on Cougar Mountain, around 680', so I often see the flakes start flying earlier than others in the area if the temper

  39. Wow, I completely missed how snowy it's been in the Eastern Fraser Valley around Hope today. This is around 240ft asl over there. It's surprising how quickly it cooled down out there, never hurts to have early snow cover in the key outflow zones:

  41. First of all. Congrats to you PDXers who have been waiting way too long for this, enjoy the hell out of it. For those experiencing significant icing. I am so so sorry. Gonna be some insane damage in those areas. Was hoping we could join in the under-40F club but Mother Nature had other ideas. Should be one of the more memorable night shifts for many on here. I look forward to reading along with everyone’s stories about this, even if I’m only watching like a coach from the sidelines!! Be well everybody!!!
