Its not enough that we had a foot in November, several inches last week and hurricane force winds in between. Old Man Winter seems to have it in for us this year.

Now before I get lambasted with tales of 'true winter', yeah yeah, I know. But this is Seattle. We get one significant snow fall every couple of years, not every month! This has truly been one of the strangest winters I remember here.

I believe the weather pattern is a changing. Expect winter to come to the east and it to warm in the west. Starting on Monday or so.

Strange indeed. Here in BOS, we've had a nary a snowflake, it's about 50 degrees, and it's hardly been below freezing but for a couple of nights so far this winter.

Snowing in SEA and AMA, better there than here.  blush  And the UP of Michigan is suffering from a lack of snow. What a weird winter so far.

I'll see your foot in November and your inches last week and raise you six feet in December and another foot this weekend . . .  wink 

Record snow here for the last couple months. Everything in ANC is buried . . . main streets are clean, main sidewalks are clean, the 3 lane street in front of my Condo (76th) is two lanes, and that's being generous.

City/State crews kicking ass getting rid of it though . . . well done.

Anyway, buck up there Duane - you COULD be relaxing in Kihei about now . . .  wink

Well we had a rare occurrence of "lake effect" snow here in the desert yesterday. For forty miles or so downwind of Pyramid Lake there were steady-state snow showers most of the day. I just shoveled some two day old snow and it was still the consistency of granulated sugar but feather-light.

This morning it was 0°F (-17.8°C) at sunrise. My son had a pipe freeze and I went up to help him. Could not get my pickup started. Battery was okay, the grease on the ignition switch was frozen and I could not turn the key.

I've been burning my fire for two days now. Another day and I'll have to go get another chunk to throw on it.

I think everyone is getting snow, cause we're getting snow and freezing rain here in Nebraska. The temps are nearing sub-zero as well. The wind chill is like -10F.

Brrrr

Most of the strange weather seems to be due to the El Nino effect in the
eastern Pacific. Warmer water swings the jet stream in strange directions--we in Florida get more storms..like the one around Christmas that spawned
tornadoes that hit four counties..while the western US gets the snow and
wind. The jet stream keeps the really cold air away from Florida...

:D True enough - but all this will just make me appreciate it more next month when we go spend some time in our condo! And believe it or not, other than the extended commutes a couple times, I've actually enjoyed a real winter for a change.

Meanwhile in the Bay Area it is C O L D !

Temperatures in the 20's last night and tonight. After that it's in the low to mid 30's for most of next week. The citrus crop in Central California is in danger of freezing.

And we don't even have a fireplace!

Cold for this area, that is. When you are in houses that are not properly insulated or have proper heating systems for this kind of weather it can be quite difficult. Not to mention people who do not have a lot of warm clothing thinking they came to a mild climate.

Just something to ponder as you are nestled in your igloo snuggled under your polar bear skin, leaving such comfort only to slice off another hunk of seal blubber.  duck  Big grin

I was in Searhaatle on Wed/Thu and it was quite weird to see the maximum temperature at 30 and the snow. I had gone there thinking it'd be the usual 40ish temperatures.

Instead I'm now in New York where it's 55ish (I expected the mid 20s-30s here rather than in Seattle).

Very weird indeed...

I was out working at a cat adoption day in Renton this afternoon when it started to snow. We shut down early so I could get home before dark. Really though the main roads are not bad. The parking lot in Renton was bad, and the roads near my house are all iced over, making for fun driving. But I had no real problems.

You should see it out here at my house, Duane. I'll have Mr. Harlot post a picture. We always get more snow out here in Maltby, for some reason. It's beautiful.



But that was when I ruled the world

I'm sick of this cold weather crap...where's the rain I've come to count on? I had to cashier at the contractor's registers for three hours next to Home Depot's huge loading door that stays open all day and I pretty much froze my ass off. I'm not too crazy about having to de-ice my car in the morning either...

It's finally winter in Rochester. We had an unuaually warm December; the tulips and crocuses started to come up. It's still warmer than average, but cold enough to snow.

I've had to call and get a credit card replaced after this week - I'd never bothered to get an ice scrapper (I did spend 3 years on Maui remember), and suddenly didn't have a way to get my windshields clean in the morning. Oh well, now that I've got one, I'm sure the cherry blossoms will be out by next week! Big grin
