Yay, power just came back on!
Yes, we were there two Saturday’s ago, were you? Still like the Mountain View Cafe better, love watching those homemade pies spinning around...
Glad you are feeling better! up.gif

I think it was saturday? Lose all track of days this time of year. I was there with my s.o. and mother in law and thought I recognized you ( and hubby)on the way out.  Also a fan of the pie spinner! Kind of my fault that they put up the sign not to run or play around it.

Still snowing here. Never really stopped. Lost power again last night. Maybe up to 10"s... that forecast update looks great gb! Nws is saying a few today, and up to 7 tonight. I bet we pile on a foot if it comes through.

Lookin like another HEAVY round in the ring tonight. I got more snow than ALL my neighbors!! It's time to sit down and start refreshing these update pages for the day! Barely slept last night monitorin' these fronts coming thru. I usually go back and forth between the radar data accessed via my phone/internet and lookin out the window.

Thinkin about startin up a tweet account so I can further engage in these snow updates.

1.5 inches in sammamish. Lake WA schools closed.

My son in Olympia reports streets are wet, "some" snow on the ground otherwise, yet they called this morning @ 5:30 to announce school closing! 🤪🤣

Ya gotta be kidding me! For the ground being wet?!

Still rain,  no snow,  at 300 ft. in Troutdale, OR.  The east wind is supposed to arrive in the middle of tonight, so I expect to be shut in for a couple of days.  No point in shoveling when the snow drifts in faster than it can be shoveled out.  However, forecasts are mixed as to how cold it will get, and the NWS has omitted freezing rain from the latest forecasts.

My grandkids in Shoreline are having their second snow day.

Ale Capone, I'm glad you're feeling better!  Backs can be nasty things when they decide to  malfunction (mine does on occasion)!  Keep stretching and doing gentle strengthening exercises!

I heard they're going to groom Queen Anne Ave, with classic tracks on both sides, and a skate lane in the middle.

How much will we get tonight?

It's pretty clear the forecasters have no idea what's going to happen in the Seattle metro area.  Looks like the foothills and areas North are set up to see a solid accumulation.

Two feet here in Lynnwood. Not snow, icicle length.  lol.gif

Snow is maybe 4 inches on the ground right now.

Our birds are pretty hungry, we are feeding the ground birds like Juncos three or four times per day. Nuthatches and chickadees use the feeder bowls so they get a steady supply. Juncos will only feed from the hanging bowls if they have to. Unsalted peanuts in the shell are scattered around first to keep the squirrels busy while the juncos feed.

I got 2' last week and another foot since.  It's not the snow, it's the c-c-c-cold!  4F when I got up this morning and a high of 11F this afternoon.  Nothing above the 20's in the foreseeable forecast.  As my sole source of heat, my woodstove is feeling loved!

You must have well insulated house BPJ, I don’t see much change in snow depth on the roof.

When I last updated the tweets I noticed Seattle schools have announced 100% closed tomorrow. There's no snow on these roads! Isn't it becoming clear this "storm" has opted away from Seattle in favor of vicinities to the north?? OR HAS IT?? Are the school district big wigs witholdin' information about an OMINOUS snow band lurking close by and heading this way...and FAST?

I'll let you know in a bit, stick around

^ It must be a black ice scare. Last forecast I heard was for snow on the north side of the Olympics, north counties, and possibly north Seattle.

keep in mind wednesday is early release; no point cranking up the school machines for 3 hours, half of which would be lunch, recess, and other nonacademic essentials.  monday and tuesday were delayed 2 hours, presumably because of conditions bus drivers, teachers, etc. who have to leave home at 5am because they can't afford to live in seattle might encounter.

Perhaps it is to show solidarity with areas that HAVE snow?

Meanwhile, it warmed up to 8 overnight.  It was 7 when I went to bed last night.  Looks kinda like we got a dusting of snow but it blew into micro drifts.  Still cold, still win

What's especially fun about sock puppets is that you can make each one unique and individual, so that they each have special characters. And they don't have to be human––animals and aliens are great possibilities
