Yeah! Me and a couple other people treat all the water here on 4 different jobsites. It’s a massive amount of water up here constantly and it’s going to be insane trying to keep up the next few days. 

Doesn't sound fun with what's coming.

Yeah it’s going to be a challenge. I’m not really sure if we will be able to keep up with the amount of water coming in. We’ve got a few ponds up here that hold millions of gallons of water. I got called in early today because one of them was overflowing.

The models are still trying to sort it out.  Speaking from past experience the type of drenching we are about to receive should lead to a significant cold snap a bit down the road.

I’d do anything to experience a winter like 68/69. Just heard a Seattle old timer share how she had 30 inch drifts in her yard in Seattle proper. I can only imagine how much better it was out here. Sounds awesome.

Not sure what it was here... but it had to be similar.   It was right up there with the strongest wind I have heard here.  Not the strongest but top tier.   Ear popping roar for about 2 hours.   But no visible damage and power didn't even flicker.   

Meanwhile I don’t think we got above 15mph.

Elevation 580’ Location a few miles east of I-5 on the Snohomish Co side of the Snohomish/Skagit border. I love snow/cold AND sun/warmth!

The cold air has already been destroyed over the southern 3/4 of Central and Eastern WA.  Last night it was frigid over there and now upper 30s to mid 40s.

It was almost single digits down in the valley in twisp proper last night. At our place it got up to 31 today but back down to 27. IMG_6522.thumb.png.ca7a94497e55b7b1da291f5059912732.png

Had .5 today to add to my .10 total. While I was measuring the snow I got a call from a paramedic and my wife who spun out due to some ice or snow on Alpowa Summit although the road was clear when I drove out there. They went right around the time that late morning/early PM band went right throug SE WA and slammed into a car and the rail. Her and my MIl are in the hospital in Lewiston tonight. I'm home with my son who is thrilled that I'm letting him play SIMS tonight. MIL has a severed spinal cord and paralyzed and is being flown to Boise. My wife may get flown elsewhere with ankle and bone injuries. She has it rough but better.

On a weather note the winds are picking up before tomorrow's windstorm and the snow has become rain.

Oh my gosh how horrible. Absolutely terrible. Very sorry to hear this! You will all be in my thoughts.

As pretty as that spiral is on the first storm, I am more intrigued by the second one and how rapidly it seems to be developin-- almost nothing to an orange center. Could it be a strong one or just really, really wet?

That last system way out west near the dateline ~180 W is undergoing rapid cyclogenesis. The 18z NWS/NCEP Pacific Surface Analysis forecasts this low to deepen from 980mb to 957mb.

957 is a pretty good low. I guess I was just wondering if we were going to get it eventually as a big storm or if it would be weakening by the time we get it and just get a lot of rain. That rapid development is always intriguing to me, but as you said it is far away.

Dec 1996 was pretty fun from about Seattle northward.

It's called clown range for a reason.

Of course a 7.6 in a country like the Philippines really sucks and is probably fairly devastating, but as an earth sciences geek, that is one of the coolest graphics I think I have ever seen

You should have gone into construction. :)

I spent 8 years at a golf course as a full time greenskeeper and worked my way up to Assistant Superintendent, then superintendent. Thousands of hours on various tractors and other machines. Then another 7 years at a large retirement community as a full time groundskeeper so more countless hours on machines. Especially at the senior community we did a lot of snow removal. Epic fun long days of snow awesomeness between 2006 and 2013.

Wow. Hope I can make my flight out of PDX on the 14th. This is a money pattern for my location.

I’ve only measured 1.76” the last couple days and it’s already overflowing? Yeah, you’re Monday/Tuesday is gonna be interesting considering the amount expected.

I had to clean up a fallen rotten tree but it was surprising how little wind damage there was given how loud it sounded. Still nothing has topped the windstorm of early January 2019.
