  2. On a personal note, one of my dogs (My avatar pic is of her.), has been missing for about a week and a half. Her disappearance has baffled me, she's 10 years old, she never runs off, and I was unable to track her at all in the snow. I was worried she had wandered off and fallen in a creek, through the ice on a pond, been killed by the cougar that has been stalking the hill, etc... The worst part was the not knowing. Anyways, my wife suggested today that I search animal shelters, and lost dog postings. Seems obvious, but the area we live in is so remote, it seemed out of the question she would be at a shelter, we posted on the local facebook page, and no one had seen her, so I had thought the worst had happened. But today we located her at a shelter in Vancouver, not quite sure how she got there, but it is definitely her... They said she did not like kennel life, and has been fostered up in Skamania County and has been LOVING the snow. Such unexpectedly great news, we'll be picking her up this evening. My guess is she made it to the highway, and someone passing through picked her up and maybe the lived up in Clark county so they dropped her off at the shelter up there. Very strange.

  3. Hey all, guess I really am only a winter weather poster. I'd like to introduce Cooper, who has already requested a weather station for Christmas. He came a bit early but he's doing well! Anything to look forward to in the coming weeks?

  7. Had to get out to the coast for a few days with the nice weather. Amazing leaving the inversion and seeing such blue skies. Saw the biggest herd of elk I've seen in a long time, approximately 60 head, then watched them cross the Gray's River. Stuck in construction traffic on the Astoria bridge and was able to photograph Mt. St. Helens with Adams on the left through the blurry inversion. And caught sunset at Lincoln City, complete with a green flash on some of my pictures.

  8. I was hoping for the trifecta with this trip to Rainier. Aurora, a great sunrise and lenticular clouds. Well, what a disappointment, no lenticular clouds. Had to settle for 4 hours+ of the aurora and a stunning sunrise. The dusting of snow was amazing for pictures. By the time I left around noon the mountain was largely hidden by clouds.

  12. Long time lurker, first time poster. Figured it was a good time to jump in. I also bought a snow blower last week. ((live in E WA by way of CA and previously the east coast (SC,TN, GA and NH) and no not military before you ask, just a nomad by choice)) so you can blame me for the torch-y ness lately Anyway here for the mood swings, model hugging, know it alls, dry humorists, and over all wx dorkiness. Hoping to get buried (in Dec and Jan) cheers

  13. We finally did it - we finally got a new house!! We had to pretty much sacrifice our first born child in order to get it but still, we got it! 4 bed/3 bath, 2200 sq ft for roughly $400k. Best elementary school in the city is literally right down the street around the corner. It's also open to corn fields in the back so you best believe I'm going to grab an IP camera and put it up for time lapse videos like @Jginmartini (love your videos dude!) as we don't really have anything blocking our view besides a farm house. Redfin recently notified me of a house that sold a few doors down from our old house in Maple Valley. 3 bed/2 bath, 1300 sq ft. Listed for $625k and sold for $730k. Freaking insane! So glad we made the jump over here and are able to get a house almost twice the size for only $10k more than we spent on our old home. Should be moving in by the end of May/early June. We are so excited!!

  14. Dropped down to -16F here this morning with 5" of new snow overnight. Currently -13F. Here's our garden area. There are four garden boxes under there somewhere! Looking forward to gardening season but until then, bring on the snow and cold! And what it looked like in July this past year.

  15. Woke up to 7" of snow already this morning. This storm is only just getting going with moderate to heavy snowfall expected through tomorrow morning. Trees are not happy.

  16. Gorgeous morning here as well! Blue bird skies, snow cover with green grass underneath it all. Dropped down to 22F and the mountain snowpack is actually now above average!

  18. Woke up randomly at about 5:30 a.m. to clear skies and the aurora borealis visible to the north. Managed to get a few pictures before the clouds came back in and sunrise spoiled the show.

  22. Beautiful Christmas scene at Silver Falls this year. When we have actual arctic air the plunge pool can freeze up, and the spray freeze along the cliffs. Also the North Falls area usually holds on to snow longer than the main South Falls day use area. South Falls is about 1300', North Falls is about 1500', so the slight elevation difference comes into play, also just the topography of the area.

  23. 2" inches of snow here. I don't think anyone saw my new home yet (picture #5). We haven't had a 2-story house since Milwaukie in the early-mid 1990's. And don't look for the 1996 Jeep Cherokee, it's a 2013 Patriot now. Higher resolution photos - https://imgur.com/a/VL5CfG8

  25. Ok here’s my once a year post! Reporting from White Salmon, WA. Always found the weather forecasting here to be really tough to pin down, as the NWS out of Portland tends to focus on Hood River and the western gorge, and the NWS out of Pendleton is always a blanket ‘East slopes of the cascades.’ I’m basically right across the Columbia River from Hood River, but higher up. I think I technically fall under the Pendleton office, but we’re right on the border of their forecasting areas. For just a quick example, we had no WWA or WSW leading up to this, and they only recently added a WWA for an additional 2” at 9am. Id guess what makes the area tough to forecast is White Salmon essentially sits on top of a cliff side along the gorge. I’m at about 900’ but the elevation quickly increases the more towards Adams you go. Most model maps really struggle to show the difference between what’s going on along the river and what’s happening a quarter mile off of it up the hill. I don’t have any temps or semi-official measurements to give you all so I’ll just let the pictures speak for themselves. Been a wild 9 hours and doesn’t seem to be ending anytime soon. yay snow!

  31. I had a great hike up through the fog at Triple Falls. It was my first time up since before the Eagle Creek Fire. Obviously huge changes, but the light was epic today. Crappy cell phone pics attached...

  32. Made it out to Silver Falls this afternoon it was in the mid to upper 30s down in the canyon with lots of frost still around and icy trails near the falls also got a nice view of the afternoon sun lowering and Willamette valley inversion from the viewpoint at the south entrance

  39. I realize this is completely OT but I saw this picture/quote this morning and thought it was pretty cool. "President of Ukraine Zelensky rejects asylum offer from Europe: "I will stay in my country and if I die, I will die with my soldiers." Give 'em hell Ukraine!!!

  40. Seconding the fabulous sunset tonight! This is from Skyway looking NE up Lake Washington, towards Mercer Island and Bellevue at about 900 ft. I've never caught a rainbow with the drone before, so yay for that first. Some fun looking virga too! But need some snow.

  41. Sad. Cooper has learned how to smile. Happy. Sorry, I'm probably gonna be spamming the thread with baby pics as long as the models aren't producing the goods. Hope y'all are okay with that.

  43. Nature is putting on and awesome show around these parts. Just getting caught up and glad to see some fun weather dynamics playing out. Mostly dry down here today but was blessed with quite the show of Orca, porpoise, Baleen whale and a sea lion thrashing salmon about! All in Commencement Bay! Photography credit to Jason Cook (Orca Network) who caught this moment! I grabbed a still shot from his video. So cool to see this locally 43/30 here and current temp is 41* NE wind 8 ( gotta love a NE wind!).

  45. I haven't really been following the weather or the models lately so I'm pleasantly surprised to see a nice dumping today. 8" of new snow on the day and it's still snowing. Looks like another 2-4" tonight/tomorrow as well! Winter is back!
