There are exercises that can help with sciatic issues. One is to sit in a chair with your lower back pressed against a backroll and the back of the seat. Others involve doing exercises that arch your back and then releasing tension and then repeating.

The pain is pretty miserable. Sorry you are having that.

Thanks. I've been doing all the stretching I can tolerate. I'll try the back roll.

Its snowing here at the moment. Snow globe style with no wind. Looks gorgeous out. The snow stuck to the pines perfectly..

One solace in not being able to do anything. I did not get stuck on highway 2 this weekend. I swear every time I looked a different section was closed for some reason or another. At one point last night, 2 was closed between skykomish and goldbar leaving 100+ west bound cars stuck in skykomish... which was without power from downed trees

A good 7" so far.

Only a dusting. I'm very jealous of you folks who are further north.

Half an inch in Eastlake at 60'.  Still coming down, very slowly.  I tried to get Bear to go out and play in it, but it's too wet.

Still waiting here east of Portland.  Sooner or later the cold arctic air will start pouring west through the Columbia Gorge and we'll get freezing rain, now forecast for Wednesday night or Thursday.  In the meantime, the local NWS has stopped talking about "in the event of an event" and admits:

Quote:
With cold air tantalizingly close and low pressure moving onshore near the southern portion of our forecast area today, this will be a nailbiter of a forecast when it comes to whether or not the valley floors see accumulating snow.

Enjoy your snow day(s) up there!

Maybe 2-3"? here in Kirkland by Costco.  Snowing just as it did yesterday on the Mountain Loop - big, gorgeous flakes.  Fine, almost rain, now.  Boss called us closed.   smile.gif

We got a couple inches here in north Seattle. I skied Jackson Park this morning for a bit. There was enough snow on the grass, but the roads were bare. Plenty of snowmen around in the neighborhood.

There's a road bike forum I watch, and everybody acts like cold and especially snow are the worst things a person can encounter in life.  I hope we get more!

Down here in the Ballard banana belt, barely an inch, and it stuck only on parked cars and greenage.  Temps in my yard stayed above freezing. An interesting weather anomaly that I noticed in the 24-36 hrs leading up to this was that the Seattle metro area and everything immediately due east of the Olympics  was in a really pronounced "doughnut hole" rainshadow.    I'm with you, C-path, I hope we get more!

They need to be updating these blogs more frequently!! I'm looking for information on exactly when these flurries are gonna be kicking In. And where! I need to know. These blogs only update every now and then and its usually just a picture if some weak 'ccumulation on someone's mail box!! Look that ain't gonna cut it when you got residents on the edge of their seats googlin' for data updates!

They told us to panic.  I've been running around in circles all day, and set the couch on fire for nothing!

BigB & Cpath - Agreed, local panic when snow is forecast around here gets downright comical.  eek.gif  breakdance.gif  clown.gif

I just keep an eye on the UW's radar page,  Cliff Mass's weather blog, and a general site like weatherunderground or weather.com.  We have too many micro-climates around here to predict effects down to the neighborhood level.  The radar page is really useful - I've been able to plan things like how much longer can I keep doing yard work or get a walkies in before the precipitation hits.

I haven't measured  but  I'm guessing that even though  it  keeps snowing  here  it keeps settling down to  around 7 heavy inches on the  west side of Hollywood Hill just  outside  Woodinville city limits. Once I get off a board meeting call I hope to  learn that  it's an OK base for some kick-and-glide on the ancient 3-pin fischale skis bought for $20 when  Marmot was clearing  out rental gear.

I passed on  joining a friend and friend of friend on Yodelin yesterday due to not  quite  feeling right following a week+ long bug obtained during holiday travel. Not regretting it despite a report of good skiing. They made it back to town in a bit  over 6 hours  after getting to the  car, with a veeerrrrry slow drive over Blewett required after realizing going west on 2 wasn't gonna work.

Alleged Sockpuppet!

Call me a wimp, but I do not like to ride my bike on compact snow or ice and having to share with cars that have bad tires.  Except for the main roads, the streets are what I described.  And, it is a toasty 11 degrees out with a nasty wind blowing.

I once took off on my bike when it was 10 degrees out thinking that wasn't all that cold.  I'd set out to ride about 12 miles?  Sweaty uphills, freezing downhills.  Thank goodness my friends were home.  I was able to stop and warm up and  then finished the ride.  Brrrrr.  It turned out to not be fun, except the visit with friends.  .

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 humanĖĖanimals and aliens are great possibilities

Lots of trees down and power outages here in North Idaho, close to 2 feet of snow here in the past 3 days, so pretty much a normal winter.

Just returned from snowmobiling, nearly lost my head after ascending a small hill and approached a step hidden descent there was a tree across the trail. Nowhere for me to go, couldn't stop and couldn't fit under. I bailed off the side, steered the sled straight and watches as the sled barely fit under the tree, breaking the windshied in half but kept going straight  about 50' before stopping, upright and still running. Snapped a few pics and continued down the trail. I was just happy I wasn't hurt and that something exciting happened, lol.
