A few images from last winter (12/7/13). Didn't really get that much snow, but it was cold enough to try and play around with some ice.

A couple of photos from February 24 this year in Bellingham, the day after our 11" wet snow bonanza, Sehome Hill Arboretum was a mess with tree branches down everywhere.

No kidding.

 

I went up there with some friends in the afternoon on the 23rd and it turned into one of the scariest experiences of my life. Barely any branches were breaking on our way up, but after a couple hours up there they started coming down all around us. A 60 foot tall tree fell right behind us on the path as we were starting down which really kicked us into gear. We ended up basically running down and had to go over like 10 fallen trees on the way with more branches and trees coming down all around us. 

 

It was awesome, but the sheer number of limbs coming down at once was pretty terrifying.

Awesome thread!

 

Do we have a comprehensive list of all of the snow events the last few years? I think it would be fun to make something like that with input from all of the members about what fell where/when.

This is a fantastic idea.

 

It would be really cool to have a single thread with a post detailing each snow event.

No joke. That was probably some of the worst tree damage I've personally seen since the December 1995 storm. December 2006 wasn't even that bad in SW WA.

I didn't get a measurement, but there had to be 16-18" at the top of the hill. I took this in the afternoon and it snowed for hours after this.

 

Just incredible what that did to the trees.

Though if I remember correctly didn't we start tracking the first signs of the big change around the last week of November?

December 18th 2008 when I woke up in the morning. Ended up with over a foot that day. It snowed this heavily for hours.

28125_109711622406741_1522652_n.jpg?oh=a

 

Heavy snow caused a semi to slide off the road a couple miles down the road and caused for about 30 cars to get stuck in this area. Excuse the crappy pictures...just taking pics of my facebook cause when I upload the files are too big.

This is a video I took on February 6, 2014. Taken near PDX at 5:15-5:30pm. OBS for the hour @PDX were Light Snow/19F/wind E27g35. So much wind was blowing at this spot that nothing was accumulating on the pavement. As you can see everything was blowing further down the street where the calmer wind allowed for accumulation. I had to create a youtube account to share this video since its 115 megs, but what the hell. Why not!

Very cool video. I have never seen a drifting snow event in shawnigan lake. When it snows it is always under relatively calm conditions.

That is a Bellingham special right there.
