The heavy rain today looks to be dragging down the snow level. It was raining in town and slushing on the hump when I left at 6AM this morning and Now 8AM it is snowing in Port.

We are right on the freezing mark, so we could see this snow persist until we get a shot of wind from the southwest in the late morning or afternoon.

Whatever happens, it’s going to be messy and wet out there!

  1. Wow, 2 wind storms back to back in Ukee! Part of town lost power Sunday, including my work. And upon restoration of power, we lost all our traffic computers at work. Only had radios to regulate marine traffic. What fun.

    Slept all day Monday, got up this morning to see that my webcam got shifted around 7am Monday morning (according to the picture archive). Plus one of my antennas got rotated. Guess I’ll need to climb the roof when it’s nice out and re-aim the camera and antenna.

    Now we got the next storm upon us. At 0850PST already have 39mm of rain. And some white stuff on the ground too!
