1/17/12 PNW, snowing, yet more snow in the forecast. La Nina? Finally?

post #1 of 10

Well, it's finally been snowing here at sea level, first time this winter, mixed rain and snow now, probably snow tonight and tomorrow.  Looks like it's snowing hard in the mountains.  I'll be skiing Sunday and Monday at Stevens, and it looks like we're in for snow and colder temperatures (for us) all week (at least through Friday), 5-10 inches a day.  If hope some of this rubs off on everywhere else.

High winds kept upper mtn closed at Crystal today. No Gondola. There was a 2" wind layer on top of the snow, which made for some interesting skiing.
