It snowed for about 10 hrs. today in Kennewick.  It started at 6 am and finished around 4 pm.  I held off from using my snow blower because I thought we would get some more.   I was wrong so I went out at 7:30 pm and went to work clearing out the driveway and cul-de-sac.  While I was working it started to rain but it's only 27 degrees.  Were suppose to get 2/10th of an inch of freezing rain during the night.  By 8 am were suppose to be around 32 degrees.  I think the snow total for this season is now over 30 inches. 

The only good news is we're suppose to warm up to the low 40's for the next week.

If you're wonder about the Christmas lights I told my wife that I would take down the lights when the snow is all gone!

    Trying to decide if I need to shovel any roofs here. Not that much snow but when you add a mess of freezing rain it gets heavy fast. Don

If you do, it will help prevent any ice dams from forming.

 

I see your located in Washington State.  Where are you located Don?

You folks just keep getting the snow! Looks like it cleaned up well! Hope it's not frozen solid now!

Great snow pics. We are getting our second plowable snow for the season. Kind of interesting how some areas are getting more than usual and we are way behind normal.

We got by again this time.  Have about an inch of little more on the ground.  Cleared the sidewalk out front and that is it.  Haven't started the blade or thrower tractor since last fall.  8° this morning, talking the high 60's tomorrow.  No wonder a lot of people are sick.

During the night we got more freeze rain/snow.  They canceled the schools because the roads are so bad and we never made it above freezing to help melt any of it.  This will push back the end of school by another day.   It's currently 29 degrees and our storm warning is in effect till 10 am.

 

I'm starting to forget what grass looks like. :D

Stuck in Portland Oregon, trying get back to the Yakima Valley. Waiting for ice to melt in the Columbia Gorge. Have been gone almost a month in the motor home, and would like to get home, but not interested in chaining up. Friend say will have to get tractor with bucket out before getting to the house. Maybe should have stayed down south!

Turn around and don't plow!

We had friend driving back from Portland to Kennewick and they said they saw 4 or 5 semi's wrecks due to ice and one was on fire.  The roads will be a lot better tomorrow so enjoy tonight in an RV park and head out in the morning.

For those that don't know anything about the Columbia River Gorge, the weather can change very quickly.  It's beautiful but very often in the summer the winds will blow 40+ mph or you can have severe rain storms.  It's a total crapshoot in the winter time.  There are lots of wind turbines that line the gorge.

We got about 8.5" here on the west side up towards the border, Whatcom county. The rains moved in last night and the melt is on. The east side of the county, 15 miles from me,  got high NE winds and a lot of drifting which made for a lot of problems. Check the link for more pics.
