Hey ppl. Does 1pm work for everyone? If so, lmk and I can get a head count going. The time is flexible. 

my address is 

28807 41st Avenue S Auburn, WA, 98001

I actually thought you here somewhere east, near the Renton Highlands.

Though I respect the fact you bought a home at the top of a 400'+ hill.. ;)

Lmao so I am guessing we will have to postpone this WF meet up due to zero interest in a meet up. We'll have to try another time maybe in a more centrally located area.

For me I have to have a lot of notice.  I always have my basic plan of action set up for about two or three weeks out.  I could see myself going to an event like this given the right timing.

Just a genral outline.  A certain number of things have to get done in a certain amount of time.

I think people would be more likely to attend if it were held at a neutral location like a bar.

People tend to be a little weary of strangers online requesting a meetup at their place. (Not that I had any worries!)

Can't imagine having that many tasks around the house that it has to be outlined weeks in advance.   The only thing we plan ahead is travel.

I have plans unfortunately but I don't necessarily think your location is any problem. Kind of on the outer range of a reasonable driving distance for a day trip for me but I could make it work if my schedule allowed for it.

Chehalis/Centralia is probably about the most central area and I'm not sure how that would work. Could always do the Burgerville at exit 82!!

I would have been down for it if I was in town (bet you didn't know it, but I'm a poet).

 

I think your location isn't too bad though it would probably be too much of a haul for TWL, Andrew and the folks in the Spokane area unless they made a weekend of it.  I'm guessing the roads down from Stampede Pass are open so Phil should be able to make it. 

 

I wouldn't mind the drive as long as it was in the early to mid afternoon.

I met a few of the regulars on here (like Jesse) years ago at the Omsi winter meet up. Obviously I live too far away at this point but I would love to meet some more of you if the opportunity presents itself. I'll still be in Phoenix for a few more months before going east.

That was fun. I still remember touring the NWS office with you guys. Even met Mark Nelsen! Then about a year later Michael (MallowTheCloud) and I went for a “storm chase” out to the Gorge around the beginning of the December 2008 snow event. 
 

Kind of a cool era before the online PNW weather culture became so toxic.

About a 90% chance I'm going to Tulsa Oklahoma. Transferring to the NWS office over there.

Agree completely! I always look back with fondness on the early days of the blog and this forum. Such good memories as a bunch of us life long weather weenies came together online for the first time, and with a lot of energy.

Perhaps we could plan a meetup like 6-12 months in advance. Kind of like a family reunion. Could even do a destination meetup. Rent out an entire floor of a hotel and bring bowling balls and have a hotel hallway bowling tournament. Bring the putters and golf balls for some hotel hallway putt putt golf. Bring the dominos for some hotel hallway domino action. Bring the hotwheel track and bring something to prop up the track to the ceiling for some hotel hallway hot wheel racing. Heck, bring the big wheels, i'm sure we could fit two wide for some hotel hallway big wheel drag racing.... Any other ideas? Bring the gas grills, we can set em up inside the rooms and leave all our doors open and pretend we're outside. Looking forward to this! DATE? LOCATION?

Sounds like an amazing time. I’ll be watching the paint dry on my house though.

Don’t you have any real life friends that live by you? Nvm, dumb question.

Yes, I've got a few. One left California during to Newsom's dystopian COVID restrictions. My best friends from college still live in Orange. My co-workers say I'm a really nice guy, but I'm still afraid I could lose my job if I told anyone I voted for Trump.

Let’s start planning the “next” meetup. Last one was so great. We could just do a bar (the Local 907 in renton was great for @SouthHillFrosty and I and has some pool/arcade games) or we could ask @MR.SNOWMIZER to let us all camp at his place past tonasket or wherever. I’ll offer our place in twisp too we had about 30 people for a wedding there last year and it worked out well. Maybe Alta lake I haven’t been there but I’ve heard good things @Deweydog . Prob too far for the Oregon folx but 🤷‍♂️

 

Obviously there’s not going to be a get together because nobody will be able to reconcile their toxic online personalities with the decent human beings we are all in person but I figure I’d throw it out. Because wine etc etc.
