  2. I've wanted to offer this for awhile but keep forgetting. Any forum member that needs a major vehicle repair I'll give a 25% discount off the top. I gave Jim a awesome deal on a clutch job so I wanted to extend the offer to everyone.

  3. Once I saw the end was near, it was time for me to make my trip out to AZ. I wasn’t lying when I saw a potential pattern that could conceivably become historic and it did. I was open about it and admittedly delayed my trip. I’m glad I committed to it bc it was about a months worth of winter that I will never forget. The weather was about as ideal as one could ask for across the heartland. Clear skies, calm winds and barely any turbulence. I snapped these photos and vids along the way. Maybe some of you will notice the sharp bending of the Mississippi River and can tell me wh

  4. Here we go....first interview for a position back east this morning. It's in Portsmouth NH which is on the Maine/NH border. It's in a completely different field (construction Project Management/Project Controller) from what I was doing (aerospace) but a good buddy of mine gave my resume to his management and said they really liked it. They called 3 days later to set up an interview (he thought it would be a few weeks before I heard). Looking around my house that I am haven't even started packing yet wondering how TF I am going to get this all packed up within a couple of weeks...

  5. Hi Friends! Hope all is well, been a while since I got a chance to post on here because life got a little bit hectic so to speak, so a quick update from me. Shortly, after the snowstorm here couple weeks ago my 72 year old mother and I came down with covid. We don't know how we got it and my mom was also due for her vaccine couple days prior to getting sick, so it was very unfortunate. I recently just recovered (not fun!) but sadly my mother's conditions deteriorated and she was hospitalized last week. We were hoping that she would get better by now after being in the hospital but,

  12. Got a kick out of this, Mailbox Peak! For those who don’t know about this, hikers journey up there and find fun surprises in the mailbox. You should then leave a fun surprise for someone else . Kinda difficult after this last storm but this guy was determined! Hope he found a nice adult beverage in the box for his efforts.

  15. Sunny and mild here at Gov’t Camp. Came a bit overdressed to ski and got uncomfortably hot after a tough run more than once. Quite sun angley right now as well. Amazing conditions though with two feet of powder on the ground. Heading back to the valley soon. Here’s some pics:

  19. I ended up with a quarter inch or a little more of hail, graupel, and snow. Just a mix now. The temp dropped to 34 which I certainly like.

  24. Just had the best hailstorm of my life! Bigger than pea sized and turned the streets white in literally 30 seconds. I feel lucky to experience this since it was totally dry 2 miles North and South of here. VID_20210226_211917.mp4 VID_20210226_211640.mp4

  26. 6 years ago I hiked the trail up Rampart Ridge at Mount Rainier. I had never done so in February, and there was NO snow at the bottom (Longmire) or top. Then there is today's webcam image from Longmire. I can't even guess how many feet of snow there are on the ground... Here's a gallery from 6 years ago. https://www.tylermodemedia.com/.../Mt-Rainier.../i-rVVTCVd

  27. I’m super excited right now, was able to get a few days off of work...going to orcas island March 1st-3rd! Checked the trail reports and there’s over 3’ of snow up at mount constitution. Looks like that trough early next week could deliver another nice round of snow while I’m up there. Super excited to get up there and see some major snow and get some epic photos. Will definitely post them here.

  30. 13 days and finally back on line with power, cable, and internet. Yesterday at 6:15pm the lights came on. We ran the good race and wifey and I still love each other. The best part was having hot showers and easier contact with what's going on around us. Thank goodness for a wood stove to heat water, a geni for making coffee and watching dvd's on the big screen. Driving around and seeing all the trees down was immense in certain areas. Just waiting for insurance to help get things fixed and replaced. Going to take a while to skim through all the posts. I'm most curious how dif

  34. Wow. Steve Pierce posted these photos from Washougal just East of Camas taken on Thursday. Looks like the drifting there was absolutely insane. Costco plowers may be good, but my money's on these! EDIT: It's Belle Center Road which runs between 600 and 900 feet elevation and is 11 miles East of Camas.

  35. I have a lot done on it, but I haven't worked on it for a long time. I'm laid off for a while so it might be time to work on it again. My chapters on 1861-62 and January 1880 are pretty incredible. It has a bias toward the sensational as you might imagine.

  36. I'm a few pages behind, but this reminded me that one of my winter-time chores growing up was bringing firewood to the house every evening. First thing I did every day after getting home from school was carting the wheelbarrow back and forth from behind the back shed to the garage; extra when we knew cold weather was coming. I used to love doing it when you could sense an imminent storm approaching, and feel the electricity in the air. One of the proudest moments of my childhood was when my dad trusted me to get the nightly fire started before he and my mom got home from work.

  37. Still an outside chance that DSM loses another tenth - but as of 8:35pm the avg temp for FEB for KDSM is 15.3F. That puts FEB 2021 as the 7th coldest FEB on record. Here are the top 10. FEB 2021 was also the 34th coldest month ever recorded including Jan and Dec going back to 1878. TOP 10 Coldest FEB for KDSM 1936- 8.0F (one of DSM top 5 weather/climate stats of all time imo) 1978 - 13.3F 1979 - 13.8F 1885 - 14.4F 1905 - 14.8F 1929 - 15.2F 2021- 15.3F 1989- 15.4F 1899- 15.6F 1904- 16.7F

  38. I went on a rather difficult, yet scenic hike yesterday morning tucked in the northeast valley. The trail, Tom’s Thumb, was 5.1 miles round trip (1,045 elevation gain) and a peak elevation of 3,868 ft. At the base, the temp was 50F but up top it was quite breezy and chilly. I’d guess in the low/mid 40’s. The skies very deep blue and clear. It was a very busy day on the trails (snow birds, vacationers) are the usual culprits this time of year.

  44. WOW! Just had a crazy hail cell pop up out of nowhere and slam me with very heavy nearly pea size hail. Clearly the upper atmosphere is rapidly cooling this evening behind the cold front. There was nothing on the radar and then ten minutes later it was absolutely dumping hail here. Then five minutes later it was gone. VID_20210222_171922.mp4

  46. It’s hard to really say how deep the snow pack is here since much of it blew into drifts and in the open fields a lot of it blew away except for the hard crusty stuff.
