Lots of dirt blowing through the air here, now. Don't like that part of the wind much.

Cold up at the cabin. Twenty eight when we arrived on Friday AM. That was in the cabin. Outside was 33. Sunny though and it got up to almost 40 every day for a few hours. Then back to below freezing for something like 18 to 22 of every 24 hours. Nice and warm in the cabin after the first couple though.
Just because something has been done and has not failed, doesn’t mean it is good design.

All weekend up in the mountains I could not believe it is almost mid December. There's no snow! Or more correctly what little fell three weeks or so back has virtually all melted away. Little bits here and there where the sun doesn't hit but that's all. It has barely dipped below freezing for a few hours every night then back up into the mid fifties! If it wasn't for the low sun angles I'd swear it was still late October.

Fire danger is back up too. The forest service has the "High" signs hung out again. That's the real bad part.

The dozer plowed up to the jobsite today, I ran up a couple of loads from the building supply. Winds to 50 mph, blowing snow all day, punching through drifts on the back roads, subzero windchill, high of 17. Supposed to get downright ugly tomorrow. Something in the front end is clicking ominously... she did roll over 500,000 miles today guess I can't complain  :D

We have dodged the bullet as far as snowfall here at the house. Minimun with 1-2" occassionally.  Not so lucky in the northern end of the county with snowfall above 2 feet.  The temp this morning was 6F with the wind the chill factor is -22F.

The part of Idaho here I live is 34 this morning and where I work into - LaGrande Oregon - eastern Oregon it is 46 so we are normal to above normal temps.  It is very cloudy right now and lots of moisture.  Snow level I see is going to go up to 8000 or so.  The ground is starting to get pretty saturated.  A couple weeks ago we were single digits to minus and snowing like crazy.  Winds are really starting to pickup.

Mtns forecast:
Tonight: Snow. The snow could be heavy at times. Low around 16. Southeast wind around 5 mph becoming calm. Chance of precipitation is 100%. Total nighttime snow accumulation of 7 to 11 inches possible.

It may be a snowshoe trip this weekend.   :D

Snowed a little here in town today.

We got 5-6" today. Temps did raise from 8F to 16F for it to happen.  Don I was watching the news of a front coming to the west coast this Sunday which could dump 6-10 FEET by Wednesday.

We are watching that storm, John.  Looks like it's just offshore 80% for tonight then 100% tomorrow the 100% heavy Saturday.  As you mentioned - 5 to 10 inches rain or 5 to 10 feet snow above 7000 ft.

Well I'm on day 5 of a 7 day storm.  All rain, no snow. My horse arena and stalls are al flooded.  There is now a small lake at the back of the arena.  :(

Freeways are closed all over the place due to rock fall (Pacific Coast highway) and mud flows (Interstate 215) San Bernadino.   [frus]


So how is the weather in your area? [noidea'

I saw a little bit of blue sky this morning but seems like it is insisting on clouding up - grey skies again & supposed to rain through Wed night...

We were driving along Hwy 1 (the coastal hwy) several years ago - had stayed at Pismo for a long weekend get-away.  Anyway, it poured down rain the whole time - toured Hearst's Castle in pouring down rain  >:(  We drove to Ragged Cove or some name like that along Hwy 1 - got to a nice restaurant there (nothing else around) - it was finally sunny but it was our last day & we were headed home  :(  Anyway, there was a big waterfall... 

It was beautiful, great meal, but had to turn around as Hwy 1 was blocked off right after the restaurant due to mudslides.

We had rain, hail & snow today - the next couple days are supposed to be sunny but getting into the 20's at night - we probably won't get that cold up here, though on our ridge.

Had 3.5 inches rain over the past couple days...

It just went from cloudy, cool and relatively calm to blustery, snow blowing through the air sideways, and very wintery looking in the space of a few seconds. Snow sticking to the ground already!

 :( :(

Not much snow here but lots of wind and it is cold (for here that means around freezing or a little below)..  Over night it may hit 11 F.

The mountains may get another 10" by tomorrow afternoon.  :)
