Winter weather - What do you see where your at?

I've got to ask other members here, "what your are seeing for winter weather?"

 

Here in Central Idaho we've seen snow storm blow over but not drop much snow in the valley floor. The mountains around me are dusted in snow. Nothing deep once again. The temperature has dropped to 24*F above. Everything is frosted this morning and cold. Now I've talked to a friend down in the Parma area and he's had already a good 2 to 3 inches of snow but next day melted off.

About 33 degrees at 10 tonight. Skies clearing. You can feel it getting colder as time goes on and we get closer to the winter storm on its way in for early Sat thru Sunday. Time to get the snow shoes out possibly if you live in the Cascades. 

 

A bit of weather history worth looking into is the time during the great dust bowl. Note that over 5,000 people died just from the unrelenting heat wave that occured. This heat cycle went on for several years which lead up the Great Dust Bowl inwhich there was devastating drought and heat in about 5-7 states. Worth doing a search anyhow esp. knowing this extreme cycle hasn't come back to that region since those years.

 

Anyone ever talk to someone that experienced those horrible conditions back then?

 At least someone other than myself believes these are just cycles of the planet. The politicians know this as well but have put a price tag on it. Now we will all have to pay "carbon tax" for polluting but the huge businesses I'm sure will find a loop hole. I won't rant about this here, not what this thread is for.

 But yes, seems like a warm trend so far this year.

50 mph gusts tonight with rain for us. One tree leaning excessively toward our private road is moving the ground with it. I expect that one to come down tonight. A bit over 3 feet at the base it's going to be a good load of firewood. Stay warm and safe. I know your stocked up on foods. Your going to have blizzard like conditions where you are.

We had few nights at 16f and some snow that didn't stick. Next week high of 60f on Wednesday, then cooling off. I'm sure winter is around the corner. Better keep them masks on to reduce CO2 emissions and save the planet.

Are we supposed to have masks at the other end?

No, farts go right through, it only works for bs

I was hoping I deleted that before you saw it. :lol:. So send a carton of those masks to the media, right?!

In a bit I will drive out and see if the big tree fell. I love it when the stump goes with it.:thumb1:

Winter arriving a little late here in Colorado, started snowing Tuesday, Only dropping 3 or 4” everyday until Thursday night then 20” overnight, it’s pretty much out of here until the next system arrives on Tuesday, unfortunately  we should have snow like this starting in October, We need one of these storms at least once a week until February to get caught up on a normal snow pack so the dessert southwest can have water for the cities and suburbs, Typical total snow fall accumulation here at 8-10000 ft. elevation is around 250”. Still got a ways to go.
