No doubt. I was talking to my parents (who are in San Diego) last night. So much for global warming and a drought.

And vice versa...it's like LA up here! We had a little bit of rain the other day, but we're back to LA sunshine now. 15 days of no precip. in the Seattle area for February...unreal, and almost a record I think. Our snowpack is something like 20% of normal. Drought plans, i.e. water conservation methods, are already being discussed, and unless things change in March or April, we're screwed this summer.

I would also like to give credit to Diamond for finding this out before we all did as he posed this same topic way back when, and look he was right, so we all owe it to him.

Having lived in both San Bernardino (2 years) and Washington State (14 years, 12 in the Seattle area), it's been interesting to follow the unusual weather pattern recently.

Is this due to any specific phenomenon, like a mini-El Nino, or something? I thought I read a few months ago about one developing this year in the Pacific, but I haven't read or heard anything about it this winter.

At any rate, what's been happening in my beloved San Bernardino mountains in the last couple years has been really sad. The very destructive fires, and now the rains and flooding.
Those who want to do something will find a way; those who don't will find an excuse.

It's wet.

It's soggy.

It's muddy.

It's still paradise to me.  Smile

You know. I love the rain. I know some don't but oh well. We need it after like a 7 year drought. I figure we will get 5 to 7 more inches of rain before the season is over.

Up here in Seattle, the weather has been wonderful. You guys have been getting all our rain. It'll be a bad fire season in central/eastern Washington.

I'm sorry I brought it up here from Utah.

I do, you know there was once a time I wore long sleeves in March. Love the rain too though. God, I love this town.

Could it be possible that because of that Tsunami knocking the earth off of its axis that that could have screwed up the weather? Cause there was no evidence of El Nino before the rainey season, so I am wondering if that had to do with anything.

In true typical self-centered fickle SoCal tradidtion, when we have prolonged sunshine, everyone is whining that we need rain.

And as soon as we get it, everyone bitches about it and wishes we had sun again.

Airlinerfreak, I don't think that's the case. KROC's mom went into heat much earlier this year -- meaning El Nino was already upon us.

Speaking of which, I am suffering from El Beaño........and have a bad case of farts.

Shouldn't have eaten those beans and broccoli pieces with my lunch.

Just the opposite here in a 'normal' year...people bitch and moan about the gray and the rain and hope for sunny weather. Then in July when it's 90 degrees here, everyone bitches it's too hot.

Doesn't matter where you live...never can please anyone. I like it in the NW as you can usually see all four seasons.

Actually in Mexico, they are just so happy to be living in a house and having a job they dont really care. Also in Hawaii they never seem to complain about the weather.
