Get the plow ready to go. I expect to see 3 foot banks this winter for your snow zone.

He should put a little ski hill in up there. Call it Mount Goodwin.

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 wate

Test. React with snow.

THIS IS A TEST. IF YOU DO NOT LIKE OR REPLY TO THIS POST, YOU WILL GET A WARM AND BORING WINTER.

I like it. Perhaps find some old rusty pickup and use the motor to power up a small tow rope for the neighborhood kids.

He actually has a luge track. He charges people a lot of money to run it and a lot of lawyerings are involved with the process.

I gave it some more thought. Perhaps MacGyver an old waverunner motor instead. Moss knows those well.

Back in the 1980s in my college years, the local ski area had a chair lift that was powered by an old Ford tractor. It was mounted up on a frame of welded metal poles, and a cable wrapped around the rim of one of the rear wheels, did a 90 degree twist, then wrapped around a spool on the bottom of the lift to power it.

38 mph gust at KPAE flickered the power here and friends in Kirkland have been without power since 4:30. Not a bad little storm for September.

Some pretty intense lightning picked up in the last 20 minutes. Watched the power surge a few times just before the thunder crashes.

And that's not a bad looking band of moisture just about to hit.

Currently 61F and mostly cloudy but dry. Let's hope we can pick up some rain in the next 48 hours or we are looking at another extended period of hotter and drier than normal weather as we head into October. Areas around Salem north should be fine but I have a feeling the Holiday Farm Fire is going to blow up again back toward our direction if we get top-tier stuff like I think will happen.

All the stations in the SEA NWS area are now wetter than normal for September... except for BLI and its raining pretty good there this morning.    BLI missed out on the first rain even last weekend.  

SEA set a daily record with 1.08 yesterday... now +0.60 for the month and +4.04 for the entire year.

Besides possibly some smoke again I don't think you have anything to worry about.

The Shellburg Falls area, which is essentially right behind Silver Falls, and has grown quite a bit in popularity in the past decade was absolutely devastated by the Beachie Creek Fire. Looks like the area suffered complete torching, really hard to look at those pics.

Seattle itself has lots of 500ft hills within the city.  You can also notice small rain differences in general gauge amounts even within the city depending on what side of the hill the gauge location is and what direction the storm is coming from.  There is some interesting info you can get from the underground maps with so many weather stations around the city (even though not official).

The entire I-5 corridor has places at 500 feet in elevation... or more in some places.

My parents live at 500 feet way up in the high mountains about a mile east of the alpine hamlet of Barkley Village right in the middle of Bellingham.     Takes awhile to adjust to the altitude there. 😄

Past 24 hours convective activity.  Once again seems to be a thing in the PNW, I like it! 
Alright TacomaWX, your back to beating me on precipitation but I haven’t moved my machine to the roof yet.  
1.06 storm total with .02 falling on the new day.  Stations around me showing .12-.18 more then me but a few stations inline with mine.  
Wind remained calm back at the house. 56*

Down here in PDX it was quite breezy with quite a few moderate rain bands. Currently down here I see lots of blue outside and sun. Looks refreshing out! 57*

What type of station do you have?Those Davis gauges are pretty hit and miss with accuracy and this is especially true if they aren’t maintained and calibrated.     I sometimes look at wunderground and you can draw some conclusions about regional rainfall if you average things out but it’s often apparent that there are a lot of inaccurate gauges.  Manual gauges are the way to go if you want accuracy.  Moving your gauge to the roof could result in lower totals if it’s an exposed location and a windy day.

This is up at our neighbors house, pic was taken near their house, property elevates slightly more behind it. My house is down below the arrow well into the tree line. It can be sloppy snow not sticking at my house and I simply walk up to their house and they can have a few inches, it’s so great having that option. And their property makes for fantastic sledding!!

Hopefully you get a go around landing like I did because of a storm cell!    We were just at the threshold of the runway when the plane rocked to the right 20-30 degrees and the pilot immediately advanced the throttle and we rocketed out of there!  Adrenaline was flowing until we were safely on the ground! Best roller coaster ever 🤪

have a safe flight ✈️ :)

One good thing to be said for this turd of a month is it effectively takes 1933 off the table as an analog.  That September was very cool and wet.

Not that anyone was really thinking about 1933... but analogs don't work that way.    I think you just find it comforting.  ;)

Are we really starting this again 

I was more adding/changing the subject to some of the small microclimates even within the city that are interesting to look at.  I happened to be looking at that with the rain yesterday when that debate came up.

What type of station do you have?Those Davis gauges are pretty hit and miss with accuracy and this is especially true if they aren’t maintained and calibrated.     I sometimes look at wunderground and you can draw some conclusions about regional rainfall if you average things out but it’s often apparent that there are a lot of inaccurate gauges.  Manual gauges are the way to go if you want accuracy.  Moving your gauge to the roof could result in lower totals if it’s an exposed and windy day.

i do need to run a calibration to see where I sit but it’s one of those task that I will get to “someday”.   Unfortunately the wind is a factor in all my suited locations but searching for that sweet spot. 
Ya know, I have that nice culdesac out front my house.  May need to put a post up right in the center there and plant my machine!

Clouds to the west, clear sky to the east.

Heading out to Tigard today for gutter cleaning and roof check at my daughters place. Last year I did this chore on a very active day as well but it was a bit warmer.
