Join the fun!

Well, everyone else has been having fun with the snow this winter, so now I guess it's our turn. They say 3-5 inches of accumulation by tonight, and we're probably not going above freezing until Sunday.

Also gusting winds, so maybe some drifting? Should be amusing.

By the way, it is snowing now.

It just began.

UPDATE: This will be the first time since I moved back that we've gotten snow that actually sticks around for a while.

OK, that's more like it!

1 The DFW area had snow today too.

We've had stuff that stuck around several times in the past 15 years, so that's different from where you are.

2 Gonna do any duck or beaver tracking in all fresh snow?

The beavers are dead. (They brought in a trapper.)

There have been ducks and geese out swimming in the creek all day. But with the kind of wind we're getting, tracks will get covered. We'll see how it looks tomorrow.

(There's no way I'm going out there, however.)

It's "ocean effect". We're less than a hundred miles from the Pacific, and all our weather blows in off the water. It keeps us relatively warm in the winter (usually mid 40's) and relatively cool in the summer (80's), most of the time. If you look at a climate map, there's a very temperate strip that runs right up the coast to BC because of it.

The effect stops with the Cascade Mountains, and east of there weather is about what you'd expect for the latitude.
