Wah, wah, wah, drought. Wah, wah, wah, water. Just can't please y'all.


Seriously, though, good luck. I know mudslides in particular can be dangerous out there.

It does sound like, on average, things are quite nice.

Say, did you used to work for Microsoft?

We had a high temp of 21° F today, which isn't all that unusual in January. Still, it's colder than the 80° I like where I take off a long-sleeved flannel shirt.

First we got a ton of snow and now a ton of rain. Huston parts of town are flooding (luckily not our house), and everything is a mess and shutting down. They are telling everyone to stay home. I was supposed fly out Tues to visit 2 of my sons in another state but the airport may be closed as they are expecting up to 2 feet of water there. I should know tomorrow how things will go. One extreme to the next.

Luckily we got back from our two weeks in Ft Meyers Fl in time for a few days at the farm north of KC. A wonderful -17 low with some snow and 30 mph winds.

Early in ER I had to endure that 'hot and humid New Orleans' weather.

heh heh heh - where are you at - is where you are. . If we get bored we visit my Sis/BIL in the rain forest out in Washington State.

It probably is real, I've seen that effect before but didn't have a camera. The sign gets iced up, then when it starts to thaw the ice will stay in one piece if it is thick enough and slide down the sign. If the timing is right and the temperature is descending it may stay that way overnight.

But it takes at least a 10 inch snowfall before anything around here gets significantly affected.


Syracuse does a great job dealing with the snow. Doesn't seem like we've had over 60 inches of snow this season.

Tonight it's freezing rain. I can drive in anything except ice. But I'm retired, I don't have to go anywhere.

My friend in Central Oregon, just east of the Cascades, was scheduled to visit New Mexico this week but had to cancel her trip due to all the snow. This winter has been crazy as they had 21" in December and probably the same since the first of January. Everyday it is the same routine to shovel snow and she has horses to feed. And lots of traffic accidents in the area. The forecast for tonight is 5-9" but then it is supposed to warm up.

I started this thread in 2008: "Bone chilling cold, snow, ice... Eugene, Oregon north. It can't go east fast enough."

Here we are again. 12+ inches of snow in downtown Portland, more in higher elevations, our second snowmageddon this winter. 23 degrees tonight, 16 tomorrow night. The storm in the Willamette Valley starts, basically, north of Salem.

Bend: 21 degrees at mid-day, going down to the teens at night, over 24 inches of snow in last 24 hours.

78 F here today. Going to run the mower in the back yard to trim up the grass and grind up leaves. If I have time, I'll wash the car in the driveway.

In the airport now- we stayed across from the Sunnyside Kaiser hospital last night and watched 8" of snow build up on the rental car roof. Felt pretty lucky to see that much nice snow in Oregon and be in the area. The 11 miles to return the rental car was interesting without chains, but not as exciting as the 70 miles south we did at 3 pm on Saturday. Lots of cars off the road and at least a dozen upside down or on their sides. Looked like a war zone.
Now, if the flight to Palm Springs doesn't get cancelled we'll feel lucky to be back in the sunshine!

Sorry, Nodak, I don't see any temperature in that list that exceed 32! Not my idea of a January thaw. You are still in the deep freeze, brrrrrr. I'll bet 29F and minus 25F feel about the same. But no, I'm not volunteering to compare the two.

[QUOTE=Nodak;1824305]The January thaw is supposedly coming next week.

I can't wait
What amazes me, is how our bodies adapt.
For instance. The first time that the temperature drops down to say 25° overnight in October, it feels brutally cold.

Yet after a brutal cold snap like we've had in January, if it gets up to 25° with little or no wind, it feels downright tropical

Yup, we are getting our rain & snow this year for sure. Any rain in CA is good rain, we'll fix the levies and the damage later.

Not so much where I live, but other cities nearby got wasted.

Gonna be sunny for a few days before the next wave comes in.
