    Default The official weather thread

    You can come here and tell us about what a nice evening you are experiencing or how beautiful the mountains look with a dusting of snow or how the fog didn't burn off until almost noon but I'm going to use it to bitch about the weather. The wind this spring has been Ripken like, it never takes a day off. Finally yesterday the wind started to die but we are in the middle of a second day of a steady drizzle. We get ten inches of rain a year so two days in a row is almost unheard of. I've played 27 holes this year, my miles are down, I'm going crazy.

    It's going to be 72 and sunny today with no wind. Wish I was golfing...

    This is getting embarrassing.

    I'm going to be over in Jackson sometime in the next four weeks. I need you to meet me at the top of Teton Pass so I can smack some manliness/sense back into you. (To those who are tempted, I understand. But don't. RC needs a major intervention here.)

    The weather here in Utah was nice on Saturday. Of course, by Sunday it was awful again. It is still awful today.

    A rainy weekend led to a beautiful mid 70's sunny, albeit breezy day. Today is the same with no wind.

    High today is 74, partly cloudy. 81 tomorrow, no clouds. It did rain some last night though, but I was already in the house and didn't notice until I was going to bed.
    Ain't it like most people, I'm no different. We love to talk on things we don't know about.

    I have a new sense of empathy for people who live in Seattle now.

    No wonder a lot of the time they sound a bit incoherent.

    What are you talking about? We live in the land of Eternal Spring! I love having green grass in January, and the weather is never too hot nor too cold.

    We have a lot of what locals call "rain", but honestly we have only a handful of true "gully washers" annually. We live on the "leeward side" of the Olympic mountains, which trap most of the Pacific moisture (the west side of the Olympics is a true rain forest). Rarely do we have anything like the storms I experienced in New England, Virginia, Georgia, Texas, Florida, or even Utah. Most of the time it is a mild drizzle, interspersed with broken cloudy skies. I find the people who complain the most about the weather have spent very little time outside of Washington (or east of the Cascades, for that matter).

    Summer typically is quite dry for 6 weeks or so, with a week or so in the low 90s. Winters give us a few weeks in the low 30s, with a few nights into the upper teens.

    We sit in Baby Bear's chair, eat his porridge, and sleep in his bed. And it is JUST RIGHT.

    Oh yes, low to mid 60s and partly sunny all week, with lows in the upper 40s - low 50s.

    Weather on the TV this morning said it was supposed to get to 80 this weekend - '83 here we come

    On the days it gets above 80 in the summer, I'll resurrect this thread and you guys can hear me bitch plenty.

    Otherwise, I have no real weather complaints.

    It better start warming up fast this month. Summer was too short last year and it's taking way too long to warm up this year.

    While camping over the weekend we were getting snow at 2,800 feet on Saturday morning.

    If we don't get a few solid days of sun and upper 60s in the next couple of weeks, I'm not sure I can take it.

    Very strange year weather wise. The next few weeks will be interesting.

    all those who prayed for moisture had better start praying for a gradual warming, otherwise you may be hearing Norm Bangerter's name in the news a lot more.

    Reminds me of some slingo (slang + lingo = slingo--hands off RF, that URL is mine!) my closest friends and I had in high school. One of my buddies grew up in Argentina and, being a native Spanish speaker, enlightened us as to the meaning of La Quinta (it means "the fifth" in Spanish, fyi).

    At the time I was in a civil gov't class and we had recently discussed the 5th amendment rights against self-incrimination. In our misunderstanding and misinterpretation of the 5th Amendment, we began using the phrase "did you stay at La Quinta?" as our code for "you haven't told anyone, have you?" To this day I can't see a La Quinta or read the name without thinking about our little buzz phrase.

    That reminds me, any one of you sacrament meeting antendees ever play Cliché Baseball? That phrase was usually worth a single and depending on emphasis or current weather conditions it might be stretched into a double. Of course you got the rare triple if you were able to make eye contact with your buddy before the parrot finished his/her prayer.

    I haven't lived in Seattle, but I did live for some time in Portland and the Willamette Valley.

    As you say, it really doesn't rain all the time like it rains in Utah. I always said it "mists." Occasionally, you get a downpour.

    What I thought was objectionable, at least in Portland, was the constant dark clouds accompanied with mist. I was told there were two cloud layers that POrtland gets. The low clouds in the valley and then the higher altitude clouds. The combos make for very dark days.

    The mist isn't so bad. It's really kind of annoying, though. You see the dark skies and all you get is the mist and you think, "For heaven's sake, shit or get off the pot!" Having grown up and spent time in the mountain states, when it was cloudy, it rained and then the clouds would break and the sun would come out. That just doesn't happen up there often. It can be weeks without sun....just dark, dark days and mist. Then a brief glimpse of what you might call lighter skies then quickly back to dark and mist.

    I don't mind it when I am visiting up there, but I grew to hate it while I lived there.

    It was low 40s today and pouring rain outside right now. The news just predicted another storm next week.

    I'm actually looking forward to going back East to enjoy some better weather

    I definitely think I have some degree of seasonal affectation disorder. I hate this weather.

    Whether it is true or not I think this kind of weather is hard on my back. I think this whole spring I have played two days of golf in really nice weather.
