Title: What we woke up to
Post by: takncarabizniz on 02 04, 19, 06:25:14:PM
First snow of the season has paralyzed the area again...Seattle is a mess, the freeways are a mess, we're up a rural road that won't get plowed, and it's a mess...yes, PNW weather is something...LOL

It looks beautiful but I wouldn't want to have your drive to work.  We woke up to snow too but not as thick.  It's still hanging around too.

Well...it is pretty to look it. I won't tell you we got to 65 today and 70 tomorrow...nope...won't say a word. 30 something returns on Saturday. I played int he dirt today. Found lots of bulbs poking through the ground. Getting ready for a new path across the back yard.

We opted to call in...26 miles one way and by the time we get off tonight it would be solid ice.

The temperature is supposed to drop into the teens or lower, and that will last through Thursday, then snow returns.  So, we'll have to go to work but at least the state and county crews are being put on alert and should be able to keep up with the plowing and sanding.

Stay home! No matter what vehicle you drive...ice rules the road.

Much thicker snow this morning.  I let Hannah out at 6.45am and she pee'd on the deck right in front of the window instead of running off to her area, something she never does.  Must have thought the deck was gone!

Oh man....I wish I could say spring is here for good...71 right now. But it's not over...just a tease.

I actually got too hot trying to wash the back windows. Had to put on a T shirt.

I'm sorry...we have a possible snow storm next week. Gotta  take advantage of it.

We have another storm heading toward us for the weekend.  It actually cancelled the big plant sale I've been waiting for, but since I haven't been able to get outside and prep the ground, I guess that's a good thing.

The roads are becoming more bearable...glad hubby does the driving, I hate the 50+ mile round trip to work and back...

19  is the low for Saturday...ughhh. I was in heaven the last two days.

You're really experiencing extremes up there, sun.  Our snow has melted on the roads but still on the gardens and we hear there is more to come.

That's why they say in VA..."If you don't like the weather today, wait till tomorrow".

That's a good one, sun!


Title: Re: What we woke up to
Post by: sunshine on 02 06, 19, 10:27:13:PM
Yesterday we hit 74 as the high...today in low 60's and by Saturday teens....and then back up.

Crazy weather!

We're expecting another blast of snow Friday and then again Monday.

It wouldn't be so bad if these hilly roads were clear, and even a lot of places along the highway, where the sun can't penetrate through the trees, is still bad, so it will be worse after the next round.

Post by: emilyB on 02 08, 19, 06:30:39:PM
Supposedly it's going to snow here for the next four days and there are still lots of patches left from earlier on this week.  We're getting a light dusting now.  Glad we took the opportunity to go into town yesterday and get a lot of shopping done.


Title: Re: What we woke up to
Post by: sunshine on 02 08, 19, 10:05:43:PM
Yep...two mornings in low 20's with wind chills in the teens...ugh...and ice next week.

Just got this advisory on our our neighborhood network site from METCOM 9-1-1

Winter Weather Advisory issued for this weekend
Most of the forecasts are showing significant potential for snow through this weekend and going into next week.

The US National Weather Service Portland Oregon has issued a winter weather advisory for our region beginning tonight at midnight thru 7pm Saturday evening. The advisory is for an estimated 1-2inches on the valley floor tonight/tomorrow morning and even more accumulation in elevations of 500+ feet.

Plan for difficult driving conditions and expect snow covered roads. Prepare ahead with emergency supplies in your vehicle and at home in the event you become stranded.

Remember to only call 9-1-1 for true emergencies threatening life or property. For road/weather conditions visit Tripcheck.com or dial 511.

Here are some helpful tips from the NWS as well! Stay safe out there!

Pc: NWS Portland


(We're at 500 feet here plus some)

We have another storm upon us...the winds are about 20 MPH right now, but they've been drifting the snow all night.  We have another 3 or 4" and expecting more.

It was a dicey ride home from work tonight...I'm glad it's Friday!
