Doing my happy dance - NOT!

| No Comments

Planning a run up to Maple Falls tomorrow to look for some computer stuff and to check in on the critters. Back down to the island on Friday morning - here is what I am planning to avoid - from Cliff Mass:

A Major Snowstorm Will Hit the Region Starting Late Friday
The weather forecast models are now pretty much on the same page for the next snow event and confidence in the forecast is quite high:   there is going to be a major snow event over much of the Pacific Northwest starting late Friday and continuing into the weekend.

A much larger snow event than occurred on Sunday night/Monday morning of this week.  And one in which snow will be falling on a surface that is now cooled substantially.

I have studied Northwest snowstorms for years and even co-authored a paper on the subject.  What is forecast to occur late Friday and this weekend is absolutely classic.

Cliff looks at a couple prediction models - the EC is generally more accurate but fairly short range. It can only predict a couple days in advance but...

But I fear to tell you what the EC model predicts next.  There is a second snow event on Monday/early Tuesday that doubles the snowfall in some locations.   The accumulated snow through the weekend ending 4 AM Tuesday is shown below.  We are talking over a foot of snow in central Puget Sound.  Two feet in some of the foothills locations. Unbelievable.

Got about two weeks of food here and enough projects to keep me occupied. The garage heater is a catalytic propane heater so it can be run inside with minimal ventilation. Going to be bringing down all my BBQ propane tanks (have four of them - use them for blacksmithing as well as cooking). Got the better part of a cord of firewood stacked under cover so I will be all set. I'll also bring down my propane cooktop - use that on the front deck if I lose electricity. Camping in the city.

Of course, I will make sure that my ham radio rigs are fully charged up. Never know when you might need to get a word out (or do the same for a neighbor).
