probably one of a zillion complaints of weather today

Today's Forecast:
Snow in the morning...then numerous rain or snow showers in the afternoon. Snow accumulation of 1 to 2 inches. Total snow accumulation up to 4 inches above 2500 feet in the afternoon. Highs in the upper 30s to mid 40s. Windy. Southwest wind 20 to 30 mph. Chance of precipitation 90 percent. (

There is also a Winter Weather Advisory for Heavy Snow for locations above 2500 feet. We are 2552 feet above sea. (feels very "The Englishman Who Went Up A Hill But Came Down A Mountain" to me)

I seriously thought winter was over. I wore capris this week. I had flip flops on yesterday. We already had the "hanger on" snowstorm.

(View from our bedroom window, that's snow stuck in the screen)

Apparently not. In our lovely town on the desert we are looking out our windows at several inches of snow that started falling yesterday at noon. I think this was about 2.5 minutes after the last of the freak snow from last weekend melted.

(Another view from our bedroom window)

Not only is there snow on the ground and a frigid wind blowing huge gusts around, it's apparently still snowing. You cannot tell because of the wind but according to there is "Heavy Snow" in Pullman.

Just for fun I always compare our weather to Spokane. So I know if I have a good whining case to call Mom about. They say "Snow Fog", whatever that means.

The bottom line is I have no one to complain to (if I want to 'win' somehow).

So I will suffer without winning. But it will NOT be in silence.

Just for comparison, the pictures in the bear blog below are from yesterday about 1 hour before the snow started.

Feel my pain.


  1. It is snowing in Spokane, but there's not even an inch out there and the stuff coming down is barely snow. It's really wet. I can see tons of bare spots still and a lot of wet spots because some of it is sticking and some is melting. So you can compare it to Spokane and win in your complaining. lol


Tell me something!
