Ah, I see on that map the cold, grey fog of the Toutle Valley. It can be a beautiful day everywhere between the Cascades and the Coast, but that one horrible patch of loathsome cloud will resolutely cling on from dawn till dusk while the rest of the Pacific Northwest basks in brilliant sunshine.
Thought we might be able to get above it on Chelan Butte yesterday close but the blue skies were just out of reach. The freezing fog made the vegetation absolutely beautiful though. it looks like the area hasn'the seen sun in quite some time snowy with occasional flurries with a brisk wind at times and temp. In the teens - twenties.

Yah, I grew up on that side and am seriously thinking about returning, but the winter inversion thing goes on the CON side of the list. I think we set a record one year and I moved to AZ in Feb. that year. I left the fog above Pendleton, OR. When I got to AZ, my neighbors thought I was crazed. I had a lawnchair, it was 40 something degrees which felt wonderful, and the sun was out. So, I set up the chair in my driveway and awaited the movers. The sun felt so wonderful! My neighbors were bundled up and walking or driving by...
