It's been below freezing here since Sunday morning. Snow started around midnight Saturday and we ended up with maybe 5" on the cars which promptly froze over on Sunday evening.

The liar weather dude says it should be up to 40 for a high on Wednesday and then back to our more normal rain until next week.

On Thanksgiving Day it was around 50 F.

Was still 23F when I went into the brewery this AM. Temps are trending upwards though, and might get down to only 32 tonight. All the 5" of snow that fell early Sat is pretty much still here, although the roads in my 'hood are far more passable.

And the long range forecast was for an El Nino year, which supposedly brings warmer and dryer conditions! Uh.........yup..........

You must be in a different part of the country than my wife's family (Osijek), as they were just complaining about the cold (of course, they might mind cold more than rain)

It was chilly all day today (mid-40s, or about 8c) -- until now, when it's actually starting to warm up after sunset. Stupid weather. . . .

Finally the mercury headed north of 32 F yesterday afternoon and I was very happy to find no heavy frost to scrape of my car windows this morning. Now it's supposed to start raining and the temps will get back to normal.

Gotta love east Texas.

It can't decide if it's going to be 30 or 70. It's been both this week. And it keep changing.

Dodged a strong windstorm yesterday, but not by much.

Central Puget Sound area had gusts of up to 50 mph or more, Northern Sound and coastal areas reported 70 mph gusts. Many areas without power, trees down on houses, etc.

The storm only really brushed my area, and while the lights flickered we never lost power.

RobJ is in the area that experienced the higher gusts so hope he's doing OK. Windstorms scare the living shyte outta me!


No



Cheers,

RR

We dodged a bullet I suppose. Plenty of high winds with stuff banging around big time in the dark but thankfully no trees or large branches came down in my neighborhood that I could see during a quick survey this morning before leaving for work. Our power dropped briefly a few times but we did fine otherwise. Normally we aren't so lucky.

Glad to know you made it through unscathed too Rande.

Ya, looks like you and I made it through this one Rob.

The wind speeds in my area probably reached 40-45 mph at their peak, which isn't terrible but it can bring down trees that are weak, dead, or where the rains have saturated the soil.

When I came home yesterday after it had died down there were plenty of branches down on the roads in my subdivision. And just as I turned onto my street I saw a big crane lifting a fir off a house. Hope they didn't sustain much damage.

Today I heard that Crystal received a peak gust of 93 mph, and some area on the coast saw 78 mph! Looks like Cammano Island got it the worst, with gusts to over 60 and thousands without power.

Back when I lived in Indianola on the other side of the Sound I had a close encounter with a Hemlock that put the fear of God in me. Too much to go into here but suffice to say when we get windstorms it gets my attention!

Mad


Cheers,

RR

Time to revive this thread.

As of last night, the rain was of epic proportions. Kept me awake most of the night despite having earplugs! Flooding on many rivers but none near me, thankfully.

Then the wind picked up, but it never reached a point where I lost power. Looked like gusts to the mid-40's where it results in outtages. At least in my area.

We're in the grip of a series of storms, and while there is a calm right now the rain is expected to pick up again through Sat/Sun. Hopefully I can get a good night's sleep tonight as last night was awful!

There isn't too much of a snow pack in the Cascades near me which might result in flooding in my area, so for now we're OK. Other areas in the Pac NW are not so lucky.

I hate this time of year. And the forecast is for the El Nino conditions to be similar to the one in '06 where a huge windstorm wiped out the power to some for 3 weeks! I myself was without power for 6 days as well as the brewery, and that was dire enough. Some folks went far longer!

How was your weather today?

RR

Orlando has been miserable for the last couple of weeks--highs around 88-90 with high humidity. Mad We spent the weekend in Tallahassee for Homecoming, and it was gorgeous (sunny with high of 67 yesterday). I'd love to get some of that here.

Well. 'eff me.

News just said that our area is on track for a major windstorm coming in Mon - Tue. Looks like I might be off line for a while. This one looks serious.

No Cheers,

Sounds pretty bad Rande. Hopefully it won't be as bad as they think. Here it's been in the low 20's at night getting up into the 50s and low 60s. We've got more snow coming tomorrow. We're at 7220 feet elevation so I kind of expected more snow by now but I won't complain. I just hope we don't get down like we did 18 years ago when it bottomed out our thermometer at -50F and froze the antifreeze in the car.

A lovely bright and still, if slightly chilly, day here. Just right to open a Dunhill mixture

Looks like the wind will start Tue AM and ramp up throughout the day into evening. So I'm prepared for the worst but hoping for the best. We'll see.

Best of luck riding out the storm; no doubt many of the rest of us will be having to do something similar this winter!

No doubt DrT. I've observed many areas of the US getting spanked hard over the past couple years when we had relatively calm conditions. Might be our time in the soup!
