We're getting the leftovers from Brianna's snowfall. If it would just consolidate we could get a nice layer.

I can't believe our luck!

third straight day of October blue skies, sun and a nice, snappy temp.!!

It can stay this way alllllllll winter long.

I sympathize with you, we had minus zero earlier in the week.

Upside the snow conditions for XC skiing are really good except for the lack of base. We got out when it hit 9F. Here is what we skiied in the am.

This morning the same.

But it didn't stick, it was dry by the end of the day.

Griff, don't worry about the girth, okay?
The length is fine.

(as if!)

V - Big Envy.
Two days of blue skies and hard frosts.
More, Please - Now.

Griff 01-15-2012 04:17 PM

Oh noes!

HungLikeJesus 01-15-2012 06:47 PM

V, the electrical distribution grid looks a little third-worldish.

Sundae 01-16-2012 12:30 PM

Hard forst this morning.
More of the same tomorrow I hope.

Areas which did not get sunlight today were still frosty when I came out of school.
The water containers in the outside work area were frozen solid first thing, but sunlight (and inquisitive children) melted the ice slightly. It was approx 4cm thick when they managed to crack it.

They'd be made up if it was frozen again tomorrow.
If it sounds like it's going to be a cold one I'll take my camera with me tomorrow. I so rarely get to show you Winter here.

Historic winter storm to blast Northwest with heavy snow

I'll be surprised if this happens... PDX usually gets busted by the un-predicted storms.
We'll see...

Yesterday the prediction was for a "historic storm" in PDX... didn't happen.
A bit of snow during the night, but rain this a.m. melted it quickly.
The Oregon coast did get wind... 100+ mph in places.

The pic below is of the famous Heceta Head lighthouse which is barely visible across the distant bay.

Trees down and some damage to structures, but nothing that is not typical of Oregon coast storms.
If you ever get chance, check into an coastal motel for one of these storms... our storms are great entertainment.

31 deg C here today, the bluest sky possible. I might wander off from work early, I have a mate in town who I can hang out with. We might go for a hike or maybe to the beach.
