Weather in your neck of the woods?

Well, this trip through the Columbia River Gorge was interesting.  I-5 was icy from Salem north to Portland and around Portland on I-205.  Just as we merged onto I-84 in east Portland the traffic slowed from 35mph to about 5 mph; came around the bend and saw this:

IMG_5681.jpeg.2250bcd48f8efd3c001f422ef94ef51b.jpeg

That's not going to buff out!!

We moved along pretty well about 40mph through Troutdale, then just west of Multnomah Falls all traffic came to a stop.  Snowing and the wind was blowing probably 40mph directly into us.  We sat there for about 30 minutes; lots of truck traffic.  We started moving about 2-3 mph for the next 30 minutes.  After Multnomah Falls exit we got up to 35-40mph again.

IMG_1355.jpeg.bf64abbb41dbaf43a75256bf33c397fd.jpeg

The snow was blowing so much that at some points, it was almost a white-out.  I tucked in behind an 18-wheeler and followed.  Once we got past Hood River, traffic was better and the roads were just packed snow with not much ice, and the wind was less.  After The Dalles the roads were bare; de-icer was used.  

Overall, the normal 4.5 hour (5 hours because my wife has to pee) 300 mile trip took 8 hours (2 pee stops; one stop for lunch).  Got home at 7pm (snowing hard here).  I just heard that the Oregon State Police closed I-84 from Troutdale to Hood River at 9pm.  They are expecting feet of snow and winds 50-60mph tonight and Saturday.  

Making this trip through the Gorge for Thanksgiving and Christmas every year for 52 years, I would rank this trip in the top 10 for bad conditions, but it's not in the top 5.

With COVID lockdown we can only play in 2 balls at the moment but the course has been open only 5 days since Christmas. Heavy snowfall this week course closed again. Thaw due to start tomorrow so hopefully course might re-open by the end of the week.

Well for us it has been rain rain rain. Rain for the next 7 days. Temp in the high 30s with the wind blowing makes it raw bone chilling cold here at sea level. On top of all the rain we have had that same system that reaked havoc in Texas is coming across but without the snow and ice. Drainage here is a issue to with the sandy soil. A lot of the ranges mine included are closed because they can not pick due to wet ground and they also lose too many balls due to plugging

Yup, snow/ice can make travel miserable.
Years ago it took me 4.5 hours to travel 11 miles to home.

Oh man..rough trip. I wondered if you would bail yesterday with all the snow and ice in the forecast.  

Pretty much have had freezing rain here in Keizer since Thursday night. Its 330 am here and Ive had a restless night worried about trees around my house.Power out all over and trees coming down. Roaming FB I see my sister had a tree come down about 1sm that just missed her house. 

I dont lose power much at my place but Im going to shower while I can, bundle up, survey my neighborhood.

So spooky outside. Transformers popping, and trees/branches falling everywhere. Sounds like a war zone with all the popping. Ive lost a good portion of a birch and one limb caught the house which is what got me up. Brushed it. 

Neighbor lost a limb while I was outside that hit the cable to a light pole. Moved the top about 3 feet. Thought it was coming down. 

Going to be a long day until it gets above freezing which isnt for another 4 hours.

We are on the rain/sleet/freezing rain line for today.  Nothing yet but it is supposed to start rolling through about noon.  The grass is still snow covered and will probably stay that way until next weekend at least since temps are staying right at freezing all week.  Don't forget to get your valentine flowers today.

More snow this weekend. [emoji24]

February is a cruel month. Hopefully this gets all the winter out. Hoping for an early Spring!

It’s just hard to stay fresh or do SuperSpeed with 10+ inches of snow in the yard and overnight lows in the single digits or teens. [emoji23]

Weather in Delaware sucks lately.  Snow, much like the rest of the Northern East Coast.  When the snow melts, the rain comes in.  We just can't dry out.  What really sucks, is I am leaving for Pinehurst next week and was hoping to get a few practice rounds in before I go.  Doesn't look like that is happening anytime soon.  It's either been too wet or snowing for the past two weeks with more to come this week.  UGH

Lost power and it was quite the show with  the lines coming down. Neighbor a few doors away has hole in her roof. Most of Keizer has no power. Its quieting down outside but day light is still an hour away. My walnut trees are still a concern.

Hope the power comes back on soon!!  The crews should have been ready; plenty of warning.

My parents used to live off the old Hwy 99 just south of Monmouth at the end of the power line.  They lost power all the time.  I'm not sure why dad never got a generator.  One year we were coming for Christmas from the coast (actually had snow on the beach!!), and their power was out.  They got a hotel room in Monmouth to shower and keep warm while dad kept the wood stove going so the pips didn't freeze.  We got there on Christmas day and the power came on!!

Its ugly and there will be no power anytime soon. Clinging to hope no more damage and my walnuts stay intact and dont hurt my house or my neighbors. Still raining lightly at 29 degrees. Limbs falling are increasing again but nothing like a a couple hours ago.

More rain;  at least I am out of the snow/ice that is hitting about an hour from here.    Rain is expected to continue for the next week.  really want to get out and play but I think it will be a muddy mess for a while.   Since most wanted driver testing is done, maybe I can get some time in on the GC Quad after putter sessions.

below freezing the last few days since it snowed. it’s been a chore just to take the dogs for a walk. 

we’re looking at another wet week. i’m hoping it stays above freezing (supposed to be mid-high 30s) so that the rain melts some of this snow. 

my patio furniture is under 2-3’ snow drifts and i’ve gotta get it packed up to move.
