This would of been the winter for all of you East of the Great Deviders to vacation in the Pacific Northwest. Its been the warmest and mildest January on record. Feels like March.

And I predicted this would happen long ago when Vancouver was selected for the Winter Olympics. We would have year after year of record snow-pack until the winter of 2009/10 when it would be “what snow-pack?”.

It's been strange up here for a while. There is no better weather than summer in Seattle and last year was the absolute finest. The thing that has struck me this fall and winter has been the timing of the rain; we had some regular rain, but rather than having rainy days separated by drizzly days, they've been sunny! Yesterday was beautiful. I live in Pugetopolis but I also have a place near Blewett Pass so I spend quite a bit of time in the mountains. There can't be much more than 4 feet of snow on Snoqualmie - I did a little research and found they've had 157” fall - a bit over a third of the average. At my cabin I have less than a foot - it's on the dry side of the Cascades but I should at least have a couple of feet by now.

You were saying ...

In the Pacific Northwest, I remember what the weathermen called the "Pineapple Express" -- all the storms which would roll in off the Pacific Ocean, from Hawaii... LOL...

But, sometimes that Pineapple Express goes south and hits California, and the Pacific Northwest is warmer and drier than usual. Usually that's during an El Nino period that this happens.

It does seem that the storms are hitting California and not the Pacific Northwest, now.

And when that does happen, then it also seems that Oklahoma is one state that gets the brunt of those storms that have shifted down to California, from the Pacific Northwest... and they get hammered by a lot of snow and ice... interesting... :-)
