Thank you.   Sorry been a crazy day. Got the kiddos back to their mom in the central Willamette Valley and have just now gotten our cozy place somewhat back together.   Such kind words. Y'all have sav

If you crop out the date, you'd think these were early winter scenes...

I hear ya, things are good here.    Overall health is improving quite well.    Hang in there man.

Did you get your lawn mowed yet?

Yup. The kiddos are just now old enough to be safer around the mower.

I preferred the T-Storms that happened on May 5th, mostly due to the fact that it rolled in just as it was getting dark, but it also lasted longer up here. I did enjoy Saturday morning first thing when it was still dry and I was out in the yard with the dogs while everyone else was still asleep, it was super quiet except for the constant rumble in the distance. Once overhead the boomers did not last long enough and the rest of the day was just non stop rain.

The thunderstorms on cinco de Mayo were a bit more impressive IMO as well west of the cascades than the storm Saturday. Overall though the storm Saturday was more impressive on a regional scale. Both were fantastic though!

May ended up a little above average for rainfall here even though we largest missed Saturday's rain event. It's been a long time since we've had an above average June rainfall, I wouldn't be surprised if this one fails to perform as well.

We only had 0.17” last June...we should end up with more than that in the first week at this location.

Hints of a quieter pattern on the EPS after this weekend... showing the storm track weakening and shifting a little farther north.

 

It has been showing the deep, cold trough for this coming weekend since it came into view over a week ago so hopefully it has a handle on the long range pattern.

That explains what I’m seeing on my camera towards the SW!

I look forward to the plume drifting closer so I can enjoy the smell

It's gonna take awhile, but it may get there, I will be running it until 8 or 9 tonight. Might need a slight wind shift though.

Ran down to Smokey Point this afternoon, had a replay of the Husky vs Stanford football game from 2012 going in the truck. So between that and today having a look and feel of a nice late September day it really felt like an early fall day!

Sun angles are way too high to mistake for late September right now, and the landscape is too green. You must not be a true sun angle aficionado if you were able to fool yourself. B)

Although admittedly today did have a rather late Septemberish airmass and temp profile. Partly to mostly sunny skies and 71/43 here, with low DPs and a cool NW breeze.

Low 60’s and lots of puffy clouds floating by...

I think the control run will end to closer to reality, once again. The MJO/medium pass signal is returning to the EHEM over the next two weeks, which isn’t warm-west favorable.
