  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.

  3. It looks like the fact I was abstaining in protest really got some legs! I just couldn’t log in for several days after the sealed indictment was handed down. Prison really changes a man, though. I suddenly see teleconnections so much clearer now. You’ll really do just about anything to keep your mind occupied. My wife was really confused a few days ago when I put up a giant Rita Hayworth poster in our bedroom then ratcheted up the concern after I went swimming in our septic tank this morning.

  4. 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.

  5. The best part of a good snowstorm around here IS the disturbance of every day life. It brings out the kids in adults and most people enjoy it. It really is magic around here when it happens and you dont get that in places where it is a normal winter thing. Even now at 47 years old I was still out last night with a spot light in front of my cabin waiting for the snow to begin. My wife used to tell me when it started to snow she could see the twinkle in my eyes and for people like Tim or other people who grew up in a true winter climate will never understand what we have been through here growin

  6. I've been lurking here for years and rarely post, but let me just say this about the ridiculous Tim criticism. 1) You've all added about 100x more attention and energy to these "negative" posts than they would've had if people just read them and moved on. So now 80% of the posts are about how you don't want to hear certain posts. Seems like the whining is doing exactly the opposite of what the whiners claim they want, MAYBE they just like having something to complain about because they love being a victim. 2) We all say we love to see long range forecasts that show major events; wind, snow,

  7. 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!

  8. With the event getting closer and more new people joining I thought this might be a good time to share some links I've gathered over the years to help track, observe, report, etc. on various things. I know when I first started on this forum a big event would come and everyone would be sharing information that I did not have access to or did not know where to find. I hope these links help that not be the case for some of the new people (or even veterans!). I've included a bunch of links below. These are by no means everything out there (or everything I have) but they should give you a nice he

  9. Just for you, snow wizard!! 1969 near SeaTac Airport. Found these while moving my uncle out of his house. My grandfather sent them to him when he was over seas fighting in the Vietnam War. Grandpa noted he had to shovel the roof multiple times over the duration of the event.

  10. The purpose of this forum isn't to provide the most balanced, accurate, and tempered forecasts for the public's consumption. There is the NWS and weather apps for that. The purpose of this forum is for weather nuts to discuss exciting and interesting weather with other weather nuts. Unbridled excitement at the possibilities is part of that.

  11. Also, with respect to the last system, I made a statement that I would donate to a charity if I got hit good (6"+ or 10"+). I posted in the storm thread, but didn't ever receive a response from anyone regarding the official storm total from Eagle River or a preferred charity, so I just made a $150 donation to St. Jude. I hope to do more of these (IF "WINTER" PERMITS!!!)

  12. Absolutely beautiful ferry ride into the San Juan’s this morning. Big waves through the Rosario strait. Was pretty stormy and windy at the beginning but was calm and sunny by the end.

  13. Yesterday morning along the Columbia River. Notice the steam hanging right over the river. With the bank of fog above and the sun peaking through behind me, it made for a cool shot with the ripples from the boat.

  14. Trying to make the best of this weather, got a nice hike on Mt. Adams in on Sunday. Up Stagman Ridge to Horseshoe meadows then down to Lookingglass Lake. Weather was mild but the fall colors were quite nice.

  17. Loosing people close to you is ******* hard and you never get over it but we are resilient creatures and learn how to understand it and deal with it. One amazing thing that happens is instead of crying when you think of the loved one you lost as some time goes by you will smile and laugh when you think of all those great times you had. When I think of my wife I remember how awesome of a woman she was and I just smile! I'm very sorry for the loss Phil.

  20. Meant to post these earlier, but there were some great early season snow conditions up on Hood this weekend. Snowshoed the PCT in the Barlow Pass area, then to Enid Lake by Gov’t Camp for sunset. Easily 2+ snow around Barlow, maybe a foot or so near Gov’t.

  24. Snowiest October day on record in Missoula and it's still snowing. 20" fell last night in Helena. Posted this in the Intermountain thread but this historic storm and cold is too awesome not to share with you all. 10" overnight and still snowing heavily. Currently 11 degrees.

  26. Thanks guys for the kind words. It's been said here many other times, but cancer sucks. The crazy thing is that my friend is the one cheering me up as he turns this awful diagnosis into a series of funny stories. Like going to the dentist 2 days before his diagnosis and then going back to the dentist 2 weeks after, and being asked "has there been any changes to your medical history since you're last visit?" He spun that into a hilarious story....incredibly nice, humble, amazing person...not a mean bone in his body....nobody should get cancer, but him getting this diagnosis is a screaming re

  27. A lot of thoughts tonight. First the weather. Absolutely gorgeous day in NE Oklahoma today. Awoke to dissipating high clouds and a heavy frost up in Nowata County. Skies completely cleared by mid-morning and by mid-afternoon it was into the low 60s. I can feel a bit of sunburn I got taking the girls on a nature walk and then the Tulsa Zoo. Been a pretty mild winter out here too. They had some snow earlier in the week, but my daughters said it wasn't even enough to have a snow ball fight. Back home my wife says we've gotten about 1" of rain since I left Friday morning. That would put us arou

  31. It is this time of year that I start to miss the colors out here as well. We stay quite green here as well throughout summer. This was from this past August. Then same spot in February. About 4ft snow base at that time.

  33. Yep. BIG improvement in fact. Block/positive anomaly is further west in the sweet spot. The cold isn't dumping out off Alaska into the Gulf of Alaska. Heights in BC/AB dramatically lower than previous runs. No deep trough carving out over the eastern half of the country. There is some amplification noted with the block, we just need more of it and tilt. Of course a southeast ridge always helps. Interesting how the Day 11-15 EPS mean and Control run are mirroring each other. My optimism is building.

  36. Just catching up to everything this morning. I think given that the user base of the forum has been somewhat of a close knit community for 15+ years, there is a bit of leeway given when it comes to behavior that otherwise would result in a ban elsewhere. I'm guilty of this. As much as that level of comradery and dickishness is tolerated here, it is also probably one of the largest limiting factors in our communities growth and activity. Every season now for six years, I get a couple dozen DMs from people on Twitter or here about how they like the forum, but they never post because they do

  38. Hi guys, I hope everyone is doing well. Wanted to share with you all my first published paper, out this month in AMS Journal of Climate. I looked at 30 years of lightning data for the western US and associated it with driving weather patterns/meteorological variables (large scale stuff anyway, not derived parameters like CAPE or lifted index or whatnot). Give it a glance if you want! https://twitter.com/wx_statman/status/1256296265907728385

  39. You’re a troll. I’d rather have you moan about rain that play the role of “self important realist who need to act as a balance to the other forces that exist on the internet.” You try to paint yourself as a martyr for “the truth” as you think you’re being censored for your maps, but that’s not the case. It is the same , year in, year out. Sure, someone posts a cold CFS with a 1% chance of verifying, but it isn’t done in response to someone else hoping for some warmth. You’ve consistently pulled the warmest frames, used the wrong charts, and praised the accuracy of a mode suite only to ditch

  40. Obviously I'm far from happy with the models pulling back on the cold, but ignoring what could have been we still have potential for a solid cold and snow event. The Sunday night / Monday snow potential for King County appears to be in trouble, but now the low that swings across NW OR Monday evening appears to be in play for bringing snowfal to this area. Probably the biggest story on the good side of the coin is the mid week low now appears it will move inland somewhere between Olympia and Mount Vernon or so. Anyone north of that low could get dumped on big time. Let's hope future runs co

  43. Regarding the stuff this morning. First, Fred is one of the best Forum moderators I've ever seen. Secondly, this place never changes every Fall and Winter when I make my annual pilgrimage back to the forum it is without fail that there are bouts of minor arguments, condescending tones, rude remarks at times, it's all very petty. At times it can dictate the mood within the forum and take away from great information found here as well as the overall mostly friendly banter and camaraderie. I tend to ignore it and scroll down to see what's going on with other members, or what models/maps had been

  44. Oh my goodness! I got stuck in the snow! After all the hype regarding the snow we were supposed to get the last few days, I figured any snow that came our way this afternoon (if it even came at all) would pass quickly, not stick, and/or turn to rain. I drove north from downtown Seattle at 1:30 in a flurry of snow (the kind that makes me feel like I'm flying in hyperdrive ). Got to Lynnwood around 2 and decided to do a little grocery shopping. Came out at 2:30 and the parking lot was covered with a good inch of snow and accumulating FAST. (I think we ended up with an additional 2 inches this a
