Nope gotta go the Canadian forum. Rule 5 section 1-b in the weather forum bylaws 

Do I need to contact ground or air control? I REALLLLLY need to take off on runway 13L.  I don't want my Beechcraft sitting here wasting fuel.

6:35 AM Radar Update, IR/WV imagery
 
I'm pretty sure this wasn't forecast. A weakening cold front is offshore, but there is definitely development taking place with notable enhancement. You can see this on both Radar and latest IR/WV imagery. The question is how much if any moisture makes it inland beyond the Coast and Coast Range. The latest 12z HRRR run shows just some scattered sprinkles into PDX metro. We shall see.....

Vancouver, BC. Got a job offer from a company there and due to various regulations I have to be within Canada while doing it, and I have a fair amount of friends in Vancouver, so that's where I will be landing at least to start.

Sort of a shame Bellingham didn’t last, but it was every bit as good a place as I imagined it to be from afar.

Nice, congrats on the job offer.  My wife and and I have talked about it a few times, but at the end of the day its just a little too nucking futzs up there for us.  It's a beautiful city, and if we ever decided to take the plunge and live in a big city that would probably be it.

 

Have you figured out what part of the city yet?

East Van near Commercial Drive would be nice, but I'm shooting to rent a so-called laneway house, and while such things are regularly on the market, there are never that many at any one time, so where I end up will likely depend on availability. In terms of geographic area, Vancouver is actually quite compact, so pretty much anyplace in-city is a doable bicycle commute to Gastown, where the office is. Even someplace in Burnaby close to Boundary Road would work fine.

It's called clown range for a reason.

Nice.

I almost ended up there twice in my life, once as an infant and the other as recently as 2018, doing some tech stuff. Easily my favorite city on the west coast. @stuffradio might have some input but North Van and Coquitlam are absolute stunners.

In any case, please keep posting. We're Canada-inclusive as of September 8th.

Mine too. I have at least since 2014 said that I am at this stage in my life basically done with big cities, but would make an exception for Vancouver.

It’s not so much that I dislike city stuff (quite the contrary) as that easy access to wild nature is a must, and Vancouver does not force one to choose between city and nature. Don’t even need a car; can take SkyTrain to SeaBus to regular bus to regional parks in North Vancouver that basically define the edge of the wilderness.

Biggest downside is that you and I are not the only people to find Vancouver an attractive city, so it is on the $pendy side. Can’t have everything, and at least I will be paid well.

Made it to crater lake final stop on the central Oregon tour! Slightly smoky and breezy but still epic. Small patches of snow still up here from the weekend.
