Weather in your neck of the woods?

When the storms have come in this past week, the wind comes out of the north but the storm is rotating CCW.  All of the moisture is coming up from California, Eastern Oregon, and hitting us from the SE.  I didn't know there was any earth that wasn't covered with snow within 300 miles of here!!

gotcha. That makes a little more sense. It sure has been wild of late for sure.

Ok, I'll add my part. I'm sure the beach has dusting of snow and ice but I'm sorry to disappoint you, I live 2.5 hours south of Houston. It is even rarer for us to get the fluffy white stuff. And I no

LOL - having been born and raised there I came to understand a couple of things. Oregonians don't tan, they rust. Oregonians are the only people born with webbed feet. It rains. A lot.

We’ve had so much rain lately I’m pretty sure rolling a putt would cause the ball to plug.

Begin rant:

So I was reading up on a weather story about this "atmospheric river" hammering Cali and all surrounding states including us here in Idaho to a degree.  After finishing it, I continued on looking at related stories and observed that 1/2 of them are about extreme cold and winter events all over North america and the other 1/2 are touting doom and gloom about human-caused fricking global warming..! So? Which is it people??!! I recon it just boils down to your agenda on what is reported and how. Me? My thoughts are clear on this. Global warming or even global cooling (yes, that was a big story in the 70's BTW) is a simple fact of nature-The earth gets closer to the sun for periods and gets further away for periods...period. If humans are at total fault for global warming this go-round (as many suggest), then those dastardly pre-historic humans during the ice age must have been really pumping out some serious green house gasses back 20,000 years ago and obvoiusly had high carbon footprints in order to melt off all those big ass ice sheets that were everywhere. Mammoth farts maybe? Get a flippin' grip. It's winter. It gets cold and nasty at times. Come summer, I bet it gets hot & nasty then too...Weird. Also let's not forget that our hot liquid nickel core throws us about quite a lot too. Anyone read up on the rapid movement of magnetic North lately? Maybe that has nothing to do with it and instead it is the sheer mass of human bodies and thier bulk on the planet surface that is swaying the globe around...Yeah, yeah! That's it!

STOP telling me it's purely people driven! That is all...

Rant off.

I'm getting cabin fever.  Haven't swung a club in over 2 weeks.  

Still have 7 inches of snow and 2 foot drifts.  Just got above freezing for the first time since Feb 8, but back to teens and 20's next week; maybe a little more snow tomorrow.  😠

I am not used to this.  How do you folks back east deal with it for months on end??  There has only been one winter in the past 25 years that I haven't been able to play golf for more than a week... until now.

Kenny- I am with you! We have finally started to thaw a bit on the west side but went to the range today in hopes to take some hacks and it still has a foot on the ground.

6" of snow Saturday night. Looked at the radar and it looked to be over so I went to scoop the driveway. I had 2 shovel paths left and it started snowing again. Got another 2.5" and had to do it all over again! Mother Nature you suck!

I am getting real tired of mother nature now. Starting at midnight tonight we are projected to get another 8"+.

I need a vacation soon!

The snow we got 2 weeks ago is still on the ground.  We have only had 2 days that made it above freezing.  When it did, it put a nice crust on the surface.  More snow tonight with overnight lows around 20º for the next 10 days.  

The GHIN handicap season opens on March 1 but there will still be 6 inches of snow on the ground!!  I am not liking this one bit!

Snowing again this morning and despite knowing it was coming, the roads are a mess. As an added bonus, whoever is meant to do our parking lot should be fired...not a grain of salt has been dropped.

2-3 inches of snow on the ground here in the valley (and still coming down) which is a "fair" amount here for a decent storm-nothing like others have experienced, but pretty significant for us here. Mountains are just getting hammered...
