MossMan's kids are going to rebel as teenagers by hating snow and wanting to move to Florida. They will only apply to colleges in areas with high humidity. (Hope I'm wrong though. Your kids are adorable and it's awesome you get to play in the snow with them.)

I think about that with my own kids. We get so much snow here, will it not be something they care about when they are older, or will it bring back good memories and they will long for it if they live somewhere they don't get as much. 

My wife grew up in South Central Oregon where they get quite a bit of snow, it's not a big deal for her. She's more of the opinion it's nice for a little while, as long as there is not too much and it melts within a day or two. She also doesn't like the wet slob we almost always get here. 

I will also say my kids LOVED the sleet/ice combo. I couldn't keep them inside the past few days. Usually with snow they'll go out for an hour or so and then get soaked and cold and come in.

I have a new generator i will loan to tigerwoods if we can figure out a way to get it to him. I could drive south a bit and hand it off to another member. Just an idea.

We have power back but now our water system has been contaminated and we are running out of food.

Looking at the winds right now I would have to guess the low center is right around Auburn.  South winds only made it that far.  Once that center gets a little bit east the cold air should get pulled down to about Tacoma or so.  SW King County is in play for snow.

Langley radar shows quite a bit of moisture upstream, it certainly looks good for a CZ to persist for a few hours.

My younger kids LOVED the ice atop the snow in Dec 2022. They had so much fun sliding down the driveway over and over on their butts-- no sleds required. If it wasn't still freezing rain and snow mixed, they'd be out there now.

New AFD says we could see snow/ice again tomorrow. 🧊🥶

Area Forecast Discussion...UPDATED National Weather Service Portland OR 1054 AM PST Wed Jan 17 2024

Some forecast shifts that are different than the previous forecast. Freezing rain potential has increased near the Columbia River from eastern Washington County eastward through the Gorge. This coincides with another surge of moisture from the west. The key will be whether or not the cold air pool is deep enough to keep things as all snow, or if temperatures will rise enough to keep it all as rain. Looking at the probabilities, temperatures via the HREF are ranging from 28-38 degrees in Troutdale, and 20-35 degrees in Hood River. The highest probability for temperatures is in the 25-30 degree range. Again though, the key will be how warm it gets aloft and if it will push the cold air in. Will add, that the pressure gradient from Troutdale to the Dalles is around -10 based on the GFS and the NAM which is correlates to a decent easterly wind...again...not working for us. -Muessle

Clouds are moving from the north here now.  A sure sign the south wind won't make it this far.  The ECMWF was way too aggressive with that.

I was out walking on a frozen lake yesterday and a woman approached me out on the ice and said she grew up in Minnesota but moved to Florida for high school and hadn't seen a frozen lake since she was a kid. She said she was driving by and saw me out on the ice and felt a wave of nostalgia and started crying. Really a sweet moment. She apologized for crying and interrupting me and I told her she probably picked the ONE person just as excited about the ice as she was. 😅

That's a really cool story, moments of human connection like that are the spice of life.
