We've had one day of a little slushy ick, which quickly turned to rain.  They say (yet again) that we're going to have a good snow year.  Last big snow was 2008.  We're definitely overdue in four year cycles, which is what they typically run.  I re-greased my front driveshaft u joints yesterday and re-greased the manual hubs.  Did it the first time probably 4 years ago or more, they were still nicely greased when I pulled them off yesterday.

 

Still, I don't see anything but rain coming our way.   :(  Makes me wonder why I have a 4x4 sometimes.  I want 6 feet right meow.

This was the morning of, it snowed all day in '08

This was after I got home that night, or it might have been a few nights later.  Varied from 3-5 feet depending on where you were in Spokane.

Yep. I had to drive the wife's montero to get out to the store today. It killed my planned trip to datsunville. My daughter got her first snow covered parking lot doughnut session, she wanted me to spin it till she got dizzy. Who would've thought Cali would get snow first.

I'm literally about 3-5 M above sea level. So it rains here while the freezing point is still about 1,000M (about 3,200ft) I can see the dusting of new snow near me on the mountains. As winter deepens the the snow line drops lower. I'm out of doors every day and last winter saw NO snowflakes whatever where I was working. That would be probably not more that 80 m elevation. Don't know how this winter will end.

I am waiting myself, But being in birch bay at sea level I have I feeling I might not see any. I might have to go up to Mt. Baker


It's low, loud and has a hood now.

If there isn't anything running all over the place you're doing it wrong!

I see Matt's problem is where he lives

 

 

 

Had a foot of snow but that's mostly gone and snowing again this morning

 "It's like comparing a wooden roller coaster to a modern modern roller coaster. Without a doubt the modern roller coaster is faster, quieter and smoother. But people still love to ride the wooden roller coasters. The sounds, vibrations, jerks and jolts all add to the experience. Sure a wooden roller coaster may not be as fast, but it's sure a fun ride that can equally scare the crap out of you." - Annette

                      I love seeing those mountains above your town!

That's a great drive up the valley to Monroe.

Congrats on the engagement! It's snowing up on the mountain today. We've had several feet already this year.
