So now you guys get a taste of what its like in the northeast. One day we'll get a foot of snow and the next it could be 70 degrees.

Oh, and why is this thread in the Equip Review section? lol
I have some friends that went to whistler from Seattle this weekend too. But they seemed stoked to be heading there. Seemed like whistler got at least SOME snow *shrug*

Wasn't 5 years ago the drought year, and two years ago the glacial outburst?

It will come. I don't think the current weather pattern will last past December.

All the snow is going somewhere. Alyeska had one of their best openings ever.

WHAT You're just living on the wrong side of the Cascades.

After you complete your big move to Australia I bet you would give your third testicle for a little PNW drizzle.

At least when I lived in Arizona, I had sunny weather to still enjoy hiking. Here it is cluody 24/7 drizzles and still no snow...really re thinking this whole living in the northwest thing!
It's because I just moved out here. Also, God hates me.

Well, long story short, had some trouble at the Canadian border, so we drove all the way down to Portland last night and crashed out at a buddy's house. On the way up to Timberline this morning, we checked the forecast on the phone and....it was closed due to low visibility. Back in Seattle now. Whole lotta driving for nothing

It sounds like you need a subaru. Looks like an average winter day on OR HWY 35. People will be passing you if you don't do at least the speed limit.

I been following the weather around the country and thing are weird all over. It sorta makes you think about the damage we have done to our planet during the time we have inhabited it. There's been plenty of moisture all around, but the problem is that it seems to be raining in many places instead of snowfall.

hopefully we see a dramatic change in temperatures during December
