    Whats the weather like there. I just looked at Weather.com and it looked like you were all catching lots of rain there.

    Raining in Corvallis... supposed to rain off and on through the weekend. Which would be okay if it was snowing in the Cascades but the freezing level is somewhere around 7K feet when it should be around 4500 to 5K to increase the snow pack. We may be in for a very dry summer.

    Monday the 24th. I just finished plowing for the 3rd time in the past few days. Now it is snowing again! Winter came late this year and arrived in a bad mood. No nighttime temps above freezing are predicted for at least 10 days. Unless March is as good as February has been bad, spring fishing is going to be tough sledding early on.

    I was going to buy a skiing pass for Alpental this year, but didn't because it didn't open until mid-January. My thought process was "Fine. This just means less runoff and more stream fishing." Now we're already heading into an above average snowpack year with no indication that it'll slow down. So not only am I not skiing this year, but the streams probably won't be fishable til July.

    This is my first year not buying a season pass for Crystal.My goal was to fish more this winter and not ride all season long on the slopes. I was doing just fine with the lower water and excellent fishing. I wasnt missing the low snow conditions or the season pass price. I rode last week in 4ft of pretty dry powder. I wanted to stay the night.

    I was looking forward to March/April on the Yakima with overnighters and big bruisers.

    If the snow keeps coming, i will buy a preseason pass for 2015 and get to ride the end of this season, waiting for the rivers to drop in July.

    I guess I should of said Washington on the wet side. When I looked at the weather Radar page it looked like it was pouring there.

    All the snow I get is powder. No moister in it at all. The sun comes out and it evaporates. It don't go into the ground because the ground is still frozen.

    It's friggin Seattle. It rains 90% of the time. I want to be a Seattle weatherman. Come in on January 2nd with a bunch of different shirts. Just put one on and say on and off again rain showers with temps. between 40 and 50. Then change shirts and say on and off again rain showers with temps. between 50 and 60. Change again and say snow possibility then turning to rain. Change again and say temps above 80 and how you can protect yourself and doggy from the excessive heat. It's that easy !!!

    Not the case in Spokane, they predicted sunshine through the weekend and Monday... it snowed - all three days. I guess that's "crystal sunshine".

    Being a weatherman, would be a sweet job!

    The only line of work, where you can be consistently wrong and still keep your job.

    We've gotten nearly 2 feet of snow at my house since last Friday with highs in the 20s.

    What I did for 3 hours yesterday and we got another 6 or 7" since then.

    Rained yesterday & into the night. Light snow & 30 now. I imagine it's a bit more severe up in the Seep Lake country.

    Nice snow shovel, Trapper!
