Best wishes for solstice, xmas, new year



  • Not many of us left warming ourselves around this digital campfire, but to any of you still here, best wishes for the coming year.

    And, don't know if it's symbolic of anything or not, but when I got up this morning the view out my front window was unusual for this part of the world where "winter" usually means "some rain, and I don't have to cut the grass for another few months."

  • Best wishes to you, David!



  • @David-Harris Thanks for posting up! We, too, awoke to a winter wonderland yesterday.

    Best to you and yours for 2022. Woot! Woot!! 🐕



  • This is a shot of our place I took yesterday morning. So beautiful and cold here in Seattle right now...

  • We had a dash of X-mas snow, but not much of it stuck.

    Some colder temp and the more recent stuff has. Supposed to get between 2-5 inches today.



  • Welcome 2022!

    Off with a bang! 🎆

    Woot! Woot!! ♋ 🐓 🐕

    Event: Special Weather Statement
    Alert:

    ...VERY COLD TEMPERATURES THROUGH SUNDAY NIGHT...THEN WINDY AND
    WARMER WITH SNOW AND VALLEY RAIN MOST OF NEXT WEEK...
    2022 is beginning as the coldest day in five years in many areas
    with nearly all sites zero degrees or below this New Years morning.
    Dangerously cold wind chill as lows as -35F will occur in the
    Camas Prairie this morning. Very cold weather will continue
    tonight through Sunday night under mostly clear skies.
    Monday will begin a transition to warmer temperatures, but
    also increasing winds. Southwest winds will increase to near
    30 mph with gusts as high as 50 mph in southeast Oregon and
    southern-most Idaho. This will cause blowing and drifting of
    snow already on the ground. Winds will decrease Tuesday.
    Snow will begin Monday in eastern Oregon and the west central
    Idaho Mountains, and in all areas by Monday evening. Continued
    warming will change the snow to rain up to 5000 feet on Tuesday,
    in Oregon first (except Baker County), then later in Idaho, and
    in Baker County up to 4000 feet. Snow will continue at higher
    elevations through most of the coming week, with heavy
    accumulations likely in the northern mountains.



  • Hope everyone has a great new year!
