Winter '16-'17
« on: November 28, 2016, 09:56:58 AM »
Fall is finally done and winter has begun for me.  Fall was abnormally awesome, with mean temps well above my 20 yr averages,  Sept. +2.1°, Oct. +4.0°, and Nov. will probably be at least +5°.  My average mean Temp for Nov. is 25.8°, yesterday the mean for the month finally dropped below freezing at 31.9°.

I now have 6" of snow on the ground and don't expect to see bare ground again until April.  After this fall's warm temps, I am afraid winter is going to be colder than normal.

I was just thinking about starting a thread.  Hasn't really been cold for long yet, just not hot.  Days in the 50s instead of the 80s is a big and fairly quick change.

A few nights and early mornings in the 20s, but rises quickly after Sunrise.

Wet pattern moved back in and have had more rain in two days than the last 3 months combined.  I'll take it as rain, but I sure don't want it as snow or worse, ice.  I'll take a warm wet Winter or a cold dry Winter, but cold wet Winters are no fun at all.

First hour of winter 2016. Light snow and temperature slightly below freezing point. At night I expect it to drop to around -6C (-20F). Slightly below the average for this time of the year.

Just spitting snow here today.  Ground too warm to stay, and it is warming up a bit.

There must be a correlation between the snow happening and our mail carrier wearing shorts in 33F weather.

-6C (-20F).

I don't think that  is -20F more like 21.6 degrees F.

Heat wave today here high of -7 F. But the weather guys saying colder temps next week.  For remainder of the week here they are saying snow showers with accumulation of around an inch.

I don't think I'm looking forward to the end of next week.  Forecast highs only in the mid 30s.

Late May to Mid August with chance of frost any time. After mid August you can expect an hard freeze anytime.
Two years ago on the 1st of June we had 4 inches of fresh snow and then by end of month it was high 80's and 2nd worst fire season seen. 5.5 million acres burned.

:D You would be surprised :D I actually consider myself (and others consider me as well as far as I know) as a great optimist, it is just the weather that I enjoy when it is extreme - i.e. cold, windy etc. And I like night. Also because I usually go to bed at sunrise. It has many advantages for me - wifi is very slow during the day because of the interference, Im at work anyway, so I work on my template mostly at night, many people here appreciate that because otherwise I wont be able to talk to someone from California on Skype after they have dinner, I do the groceries after work and everything is discounted because the store is about to close etc etc :D

Either way, no Im not a gothic and I dont wear black clothes all the time :D

I was there in the Summer of '71 (I think), little place called Kotzebue among other places.  Still have the gold nugget somewhere that I panned.  More like a small fleck than a nugget, but you know how those things go.
