I am fairly high up on this list. ☹️  And I like cold and wet for about 1/3 of the year. It’s still not enough. 

Yeah about 70% of your posts the last six months blatantly going out of your way for a negative reaction from me has absolutely nothing to do with that :lol:👍

Yeah...I think the white faced hornets are what got me last time.  Just no doubt what it was the second it happened.  They didn't like the lawn mower too much.  It will be interesting to see what happens with those giant hornets they have started finding in Whatcom County.

Yea. Power equipment really irritates them.  I remember working near a nest with a chainsaw one day and they started to get aggressive.  I literally ran to my truck about 100 yards away and they were still after me.

I have an issue... with them existing. Well, just the jackets/hornets and certain types of wasps.

The bumble bees and honeybees are okay in my book, even a little cute. At least they won't unprovoked just attack someone walking back home.

I like bees.  I work around them all the time and almost never get stung.  Only once when one somehow got into the top of my shoe did I get stung by a bee.

The wildfire trolling last fall didn't sit too well with me. I know I messed up bigtime rooting against heatwaves the summers leading up to it but it felt kinda mean.

Not saying I'm perfect of course. But it always takes two to tango on here.

I will only travel HWY 2 on Mondays-Thursdays and I try to keep it to the late mornings for work. If we are heading to Lake Entiat or Chelan for pleasure and go on a Friday we are on the road by 7am and we won’t come back until the following Monday. Between the weekend/Holiday traffic and construction in the summer that is the only option unless you enjoy crawling along at 2mph.

Bright and sunny here now, 48 degrees. 

Really hoping we can hold onto clear skies tonight. We have had pretty rotten luck lately with daytime sun and nighttime clouds. Has helped to maximize the plus anomalies in an overall cool regime.

I don’t remember wildfire trolling. Perhaps there was I can’t say for sure. I have dealt with wildfire impacts on my family’s property in the interior.  We were evacuated in the middle of the night with our 2 month old baby and spent the night sleeping on the floor in a temporary shelter. I’m sympathetic to people who lost property in last year’s wildfires.

There was a fair deal of it going around on all sides. A large part of it had to do with the natural outcome of escalating hyperbole as it struggles to keep up with the varying levels of philperbole. We’ve all been there.

You know what kind of bees are fun? Africanized. Those jerks will follow you for a few miles.

The tulip farm in Woodburn will be open this year, we still need to buy tickets.

I looked it up after mentioning it and it looks like we will too. They are only accepting tickets purchased in advance now.

I better hurry before you get yours. 😈

My son took his mom skiing at Snoqualmie Summit today... looks picture perfect.    Currently 42 and sunny up there and they said it feels quite warm.    Classic spring skiing conditions.

Or it was blatantly a joke.   I remember Shawnigan pushing back a little... because whenever we cheer for anything other than rain and cold all summer it is assumed that we must want Oregon to burn.  🙄

18Z GFS still shows the front limping in to Seattle on Sunday afternoon... but the parallel 18Z GFS shows mid 60s in Seattle that day.

I can't ever remember downvoting someone for cheering for cold and rain.    I can't remember the last time I downvoted any post.   I guess its Jesse's way of making sure you know that your post was the wrong view per the forum police.  😄

Example of the ECMWF cold bias with high temps... it showed 49 for a high today at SEA and its currently 54 there.    It showed low 40s in the Snoqualmie Valley and its 53 in North Bend right now.   Apparently it reaches out to Snoqualmie Pass where it showed 38 today and the high so far has been 43 there.  

Its usually 3-5 degrees too cold for the Puget Sound region particularly from spring through fall.

Yeah, very high bust potential with this one. Runs today show a slight jog north with the storm, which drastically cuts back totals here.

Decided to go kayak out there on this beautiful day.  Unfortunately half way through the north wind picked up causing some pretty good waves.  Had a unforgettable focused trip back to the launch which included 3/4 of a mile along a sea wall so backlash waves! I was bobbing around like a cork!    I just focused straight ahead and paddled hard!   Got a little wet landing the kayak on the beach.
