    Well here in Montana it has sure been a strange one. Last Saturday it was 58 degrees at 5pm and by 7pm it was 15degrees. Had massive snow melt on frozen ground and then it froze like a skating rink.

    Sunday morning was -5.

    It’s forecast to be -5 to -10 today with wind chills at -35.

    We don’t call it a vortex, just winter in Montana, lol.

    But for the most part it has been super mild this year.

    It's 27 degrees here with it raining pretty good, AccuWeather has us getting over half inch of ice, lets hope they're wrong.

    Watching that one closely. 8-12" on the ground here and a lot of trees down. The T6 is getting a workout as winter has arrived in earnest in the PacNW, albeit pretty late. We were without power yesterday, but the house stayed comfortable in the 70-72 range in spite of a stiff north wind.

    Unfortunately, what we have here is making its way eastward. Batten down the hatches Michigan and Wisconsin.

    Power was out in many places yesterday with the massive wind storm we had yesterday on southern Vancouver Island and the south coast. Now the snow! We had four inches on the ground from earlier in the week and four inches in the last 2 hours! The long range doesn't look promising...

    Much more. And that 5cm they forecast for today turned in to 25cm. Another 15cm by Tuesday. This is unusual for us.

    Meh- I was out ice fishing in -15 yesterday. Unfortunately we’re used to this crud, lol.

    I’d love to have a pellet stove in my shanty :)

    Have you folks dug yourself out yet? With the 4'' last night, we're up to 26'' in the last seven days. We're really done with winter.;hm

    With temps in the 40s we're in meltdown mode. The yard still has about 4" to go, but I have the driveway clear now and yesterday they finally plowed off the mass of ice and slush off our road. A friend of mine up north got 30", then some more on top of that. He sent me this picture during a sunny break a couple days ago. This is the path out of the house. He didn't get much further. His Kubota is alright for the level areas but the ice layers and packed snow made things too skiddish for clearing their road that day. He was sliding sideways on even a gentle incline.

    Lucky you. You must be high ==c in altitude. Down close to sea level the snow is disappearing quickly. Up in the mountains it's a whole different story. Snoqualamie Pass got 53" in Monday's snow.

    We’re still mostly snow covered at the house but it is melting. I’ve been spending Fridays at the mountain. Today is the first day we could get out of the driveway without 4wd!
