  1. The house still stands. They let us in to check on the animals. Without the dogs there 4 of the chickens and 1 of the ducks have been killed, but the sheep and pig are doing well. We hauled fresh water up from the creek and gave everyone tons of feed.

  2. I promise there are tears of joy under these glasses. @MR.SNOWMIZERis arguably the most gracious person on this board. I cannot thank you enough for this. Following the weather provides a type of peace that helps my brain calm down. When @SilverFallsAndrewhas time, he is going to help set this up so it’s calibrated properly as It’s not safe for me to get up on the ladder anymore . To all of you on this board, thank you for keeping my spirits up. I hope we are all able to make one another’s days better with our shared love of atmospheric science.

  3. 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.

  5. 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.

  6. 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.

  7. 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

  8. 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.

  10. 52F and beautiful in downtown Springfield. If someone needs a badass to install a weather station, then call up @SilverFallsAndrew because I can’t thank him enough for helping me with this. And @MR.SNOWMIZER is the most gracious person on this board! Again, thank you so much for making this happen!! Brings tears to my eyes looking at this. Mother Nature...always hard at work.

  11. 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.

  12. 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.

  14. 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

  15. 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.

  16. 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!!!

  19. By far the most impressive October storm I've witnessed here since 2012 when I bought property. Ended up with 9 inches of powder and is currently 22 degrees down from 24 at 9am.

  20. 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.

  21. 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

  26. @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

  28. This has been one of the most disappointing winters in recent memory. Obviously, there is still a chance that something interesting occurs but I won't hold my breath. I do want to say thank you to all that have posted maps and model analysis for the past few months. It is greatly appreciated.

  29. That front was a doozy out here this morning as well. Went from 45F at 9am down to 32F in 10min with very heavy snowfall and near zero visibility. Still pouring snow with 2.5" of snow in just the last hour and a half. Currently 26F.

  30. Major shift on the 12z EPS to lower heights over the West with rising heights in the SE compared to the 00z last night. Looking like a really fun mid month on through the Holidays. Perfect timing IMO!

  32. 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!!!!!

  37. Problem is people look at the models, which of course are not very reliable in the long range, and think that is the only way to predict long term weather, so why bother? There is more to it than that. The SSW is real and happening now, not 384hr from now. Research has shown that when it happens in Siberia, it usually leads to cold in Western North America. May miss your backyard, but it will likely be in the neighborhood. And this is a Nina year with a westerly QBO. Obviously no guarantee, but there is good reason to be optimistic beyond just looking at a long range model

  38. That was awesome!! Came in quick and heavy with huge flakes and added up to a half inch pretty quick before it fizzled out. When I saw the band holding together I got my son excited and we got all snow-ready with Christmas music playing but I was nervous it wasn't going to work out. I'm so glad it delivered! Also had just enough to build a mini snowman and put him next to big pappa snowman. Merry Christmas!

  39. 1.05" of rainfall/hail yesterday afternoon/evening with the strong storms that moved through here before changing to heavy snowfall around midnight. Measured 7" this morning! Pretty incredible for May 8th. Currently 28F.

  42. 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.
