Talk about weird weather. ! We where blessed(?) With a wind storm yesterday , with 65 mph gusts, it was a show, just watching people trying to get to their cars. Driving them must have been a nightmare.

I can safely say the weather predictions have NOT been right for a couple months. Every week-end snow is predicted, then the temp goes to 55° and more wind. So snow predicted again, but it is to be 45° today and........wind.

Note: We do need snow here desperately, as we depend on full reservoirs and rivers for are water and power. It is not looking good to keep us going in the Summer.

And of course hi-winds don't do the Wind Turbines much good, they are usually shut down, as the can turn themselves into a giant fireball or get knocked over.

So hows your weather?

Well, after being hyped to the moon by the media? I can't say if we even got a full 4 inches of snow out of this weekend's forecast Friday evening to Sunday morning "storm" - That's like 3-something less than what we got on Halloween (an unseasonably hefty 7 inch snowfall the weathermen DIDN'T see coming).

They'd also said with the storm we could see wind gusts up to 35-40 mph. We didn't. But then, they only said "COULD," not "WOULD" so it's not like we can say the weathermen were wrong.

Of course, just 'cause weather can be unpredictable, in no way should anyone ever dare to even suggest that the same applies to climate - In that regard we ALL CAN better believe if we don't go carbon neutral yesterday for sure the world is going to end in (insert whatever number of years here) :roll:

Coulda been colder overnight but prolly not by alot.

Right now it's "only" 11 below.

That's global warming for ya.

Incredable, Riddick!

Here is the weather here:

Today
Isolated showers after 10am. Snow level 1700 feet rising to 2400 feet. Mostly sunny, with a high near 49. West wind 16 to 21 mph, with gusts as high as 30 mph. Chance of precipitation is 20%..

About 2 weeks a go we had a "Century Flood". It snowed very hard for about 2 days, then melted very fast out of the mountains wiped out about 150 famlies on an usually safe flood plain, a tragedy and big mess. It even closed our freeway I-84 for a couple days. One life lost.

The wind seems to never stop!

We had 70MPH gusts here Sunday, have been experiencing lots of Freeway Closing winds lately.

Humidity 56%
Wind Speed ENE 9 MPH
Barometer 30.43 in (1030.48 mb)
Dewpoint 30°F (-1°C)
Visibility 10.00 mi
Wind Chill 40°F (4°C)
Last update 25 Feb 06:50 PM PST

I have never seen the Barometer so high. My body is in agony. And we had at least 10 to 15 Chem-Trailers in the sky all day doing the "Xs". Makes one wonder?
