It snowed another 6" inches of snow on New Years day. This is the third time this winter that we've had 6" of snow in Eastern Washington. This is not very normal for us. The other unusual thing is we don't have a warm wind (called a Chinook Wind) following the storm to melt it all away. Instead, we're suppose to drop down into Single digits at night until the end of the week. I haven't seen a winter like this since January of 1993.
I live in the City of Kennewick. It's a native name which means "Winter haven". The different tribes would spend there winter here because it had mild temperatures and very little snow because of the Cascade Mts. blocking the precipitation making it very arid. The Columbia River also provided plenty of food and fresh drinking water.
After this, I plan on getting the Cub 1811 w/42" snow blower out to clear out a path.
