Winter Weather

Postby olywaguy » Tue Dec 08, 2009 10:41 am

I can't believe it...Olympia is at 6 F at 7:38 am PST. There is no precipitation (no snow) but it is very cold. When I woke up this morning at 5:35 am PST, it was 9 F. It has gone down since I woke up.

This is one crazy winter. Over a week ago, New Orleans had snow!! Washington DC had a bit of snow too.

We had a blizzard on Friday. Snow and wind all day long. Saturday morning there were 10 foot drifts on some streets. The wind chill was about -30 all weekend.

November was fairly nice, but overall this has been a year to forget. Cold summer, cold fall, cold winter. 10 of the 12 months have been below normal.

Wed. 16 Dec. Lots of rain last nite. Today was bright and almost mild... I'd guess about 6C
(I'm so used to centigrade, now, I'd have to look at a chart to convert to farenheit).

I seem to be attracting winter storms so far this year. I got caught in that freaky and windy storm in Ontario earlier this month, and today I find myself digging out from the two feet of snow received yesterday....and it's only December!

When I was a kid, on a day like today my dad would have sent me out into the neighborhood to earn money. With a storm like this one, I would've earned enough to pay for most of the fun I wanted to have next summer. Today, there's not a kid in sight. In my neighborhood it's the parents who are digging out the cars, and clearing sidewalks and driveways, while all the teens are in the house, dry and warm, playing video games or watching TV. How did it all get this way?

The weather in the pacific northwest has been about as eccentric as Howard Hughes the last month. Rain and wind, then bitter cold and wind, then slightly warmer and a bit of snow, now 53 deg. F and raining again.

Feh, says I.

How's the snowpack doing at Whistler? Will they need to use the snowmaking machines for the Olympics? :roll:

Sunday 20th Dec.

Pouring rain here in Vancouver today. A bit cool, but not bad.

It has been a dud of a winter so far here. It gets cold and doesn't snow or it gets too warm and rains. To date we have had 14" of snow for the season we normally get 42" and the last two winters we got over 60". I guess this winter is compensating for the extra from the last two winters.

This year we got zero snow, perhaps compensating for the two-foot thud that landed on us last year.

Thankfully. But now ya done it. With all those VANOC (sorry, Batty :wink: ) people praying to the snow gods to hurry up and give them a white Olympics, we might get some yet. Hope not. All it takes is a move of the jetstream (which has been pretty squirrelly this year), a slow-moving cold front (hopefully we've had ours for the winter) and a Pineapple Express pointed right at us like a fire hose (which we're used to but California seems to have gotten ours lately) and we're sunk. While I would like for the Vancouver Olympics to get what they need and I do really like our nice BC neighbors to the north, they can refrain from sharing what they might get!

So what happens if there is no snow for the Vancouver Olympics? What is plan B?

Someone on the Accuweather forums said they have begun trucking snow in from snowier areas of the Rockies. I would imagine they would be making snow like crazy too, although man made snow tends to be really icy and fast.

It's the snowboarding mountain that's in trouble....Cypress mountain. They're moving snow from the top of the mountain down to the bottom. Vancouver just had its warmest January on record. Whistler has lots of snow....it's at a higher elevation.

It's been shocking down this way.
Worst Summer ever.

It's that El Ninio cycle stuffing things up.

My thermometer's only showing 19C, and obviously few degrees out because I accidentally sat on it.

Here in Baltimore, we had the most snow this winter out of any city in the US. Sucks!

And the cherry trees around my house exploded into bloom over the last few days. Since our rhodies are all on the northern end of the complex they're only just beginning to show buds. But spring is comin' !! (Not that we really had much, if any, winter this year. We loaned it all to California and the rest of the country. You're welcome :D )

Well, here in Central Washington, it is snowing like crazy. It has been snowing every two days since Wednesday. Yes, it is snowing right now as we speak.

You can take a look at the snow pics on my facebook page.
