It was in the 50's and some rain 'til the storms hit. Since Wednesday, it's snowed about 6" here which is a disaster for the "non-snow people" (diplomat speak for California transplants) around here. Last night, it got down to 15 degrees, and rained. The packed snow is now ice-encased. People in cars can hardly get moving. I pulled out two stuck cars here at work when I got here this morning. We sent home everyone who doesn't have a mongo-4x4. :p

There's supposed to be more snow tonight, then warm up to the 40's on Saturday, (which will create floods) then storm again on Sunday. We'll see. In the meantime, it's mostly 4x4's driving around town as just about everything other than 711's and video stores are closed. :cool:

Here's my XK sitting outside the shop yesterday. And I LOVE those Toyo M/T's. They're like saw blades in this stuff!

I'm down at jblm and it was all ice here as well. I live on McCord side and haven't had power, this is the 2nd day. There are tons of trees down.

It was partly cloudy and 78Deg yesterday. Supposed to be 72 today and chance of rain. I've worn shorts and a T shirt every day this week and ride with the windows down to and from work. Don't get me wrong though, I'd prefer to be excercising the XK in the cold and snow. Much more ideal to me. The warm is nice but i'm tired of it and the fact that when the real warm sets in during the summer it regularly hits over 105.

It's been in the mid to upper 40's for the last couple of days, and there's just a smidgen of packed snow/ice left in driveways. No more 4x4'ing in the city fun!

Mid to upper 20's Gorgeous day. 11.5 inches of wet, heavy, break your back (good thing I have a snow blower) kinda snow fell over night with another 3-5 right now into tomorrow. Pure awesomeness! Snow day for the kiddos so after clearing the drive I took them for "donuts" hehehe...I love days like this

If it wasn't for the fact I spent 20 years in So Cal before moving here I would have gone nuts by now.

Well it was sunny & in the high 50's low 60's for the last few days & great here. Now it is raining again so good by sun

60 degrees on saturday enjoyed some time on the water.
Our first 2 places to launch were still frozen but upstream was thawed.
We had 2+ ft of snow melt in 4 days.
Fun for January 12th,2013.

Sunny and 74 degrees! Perfect day out there to be stuck in the office....ugh

It has that fresh spring feel where you could sit outside and drink beer all day without a care in the world. Too bad it will end soon

Indeed it did... 28 degrees today and it just started snowing.
Had to take advantage when we can.
Funny thing I think I saw phoenix in the 30's this weekend while we were in the 60's.

Went to the carwash and spent $6 $.75 at a time! Don't konw exactly what happened. Probabally operator error!!!

We are at another day of 74 degrees, but it will begin to rain tomorrow and bring us back to reality

My first wreck in a truck was in 'frozen fog' just south of Williamsport, PA on US15. Half way up the mountain headed south, came on quick and put me and the rig right in the ditch!

Hope to see some of the white stuff before it melts.

Not very often, but when it does the water floods and it is no fun. even hard to wheel with that much water in the washes.
