Can the weather be anymore depressing

post #1 of 16
Thread Starter 
Enough is enough with the rain here in SW Pa. Skied Sat. for a few hours in "mixed precip" got drenched in a few hours and quit, foolishly hoping skiing would be better the next couple of days. Today is a complete washout. Sunday appears in hindsight to have been the "pick day" as it was dry.

How's everybody else coping with the Mid Atlantic weather disappointment. We started out at Thanksgiving with good snow and things got progressively better. I feel bad for the people who booked reservations in advance and have paid alot of money . Looks like we will start to ski more winter type weather here Thursday, but it doesn't look like it will be cold enough to allow snow making to restorer the conditions to where they were before the weather decided to behave like it was late April in December!

Note to self, next year for Christmas I'm asking Santa for the neoprene bun warmers. Sitting in a puddle on the lift takes the fun away during a soggy day.

sorry to hear that.

we were experiencing that sort of weather the past 4 seasons while the East Coast was getting glory dumps. I know what you're talking about. save those bucks and make a trip to where the snow is good.

besides, you're bound to improve more in a 4-5 day trip than in 4 or 5 individual days spaced throughout a month or so.

Humbug!

Dog s_it!

Torment small animals before sacrifice to the Snow Gods!

Don't open or hold the door open for anyone!

Why let a guy out of a parking lot and into YOUR line of traffic. Make the sucker wait .... YOU had to!

You want more ????

Same crap here in the midwest. Rain today, and we have not seen the sun in at least 2 weeks. We had a great start untill a few days before Christmas, then it went to hell. :

Weather can really be depressing. 31 inches in town since yesterday, Mammoth Lakes, w/ 3-4 feet falling on the mountain and it's still coming down on a 10-12 foot base. I'm afraid this is to much of a good thing.

Last Friday the forcast said 4" of fresh powder. Actually got 1 1/2" of sticky snow. It was nice to have it for some new cover but then 2 days of warm weather and today DRIZZLE!:

I'll still ski it and I'll still have fun but.........YUCK!

oh the short memories of the Easterners, who very conveniently forget pouring mercurochrome, salt, alcohol and iodine into Westerners' open wounds of snow drought over the PAST FOUR SEASONS.

I can second that. I've been on vacation since the 15th and for a few decent days in before Christmas. We ended up coming home a day early on our after Christmas trip. I didn't even waste the time going again this weekend. It's supposed to start getting colder near the end of next week.

if I can have the liberty of calling some PNW wet cement "powder," then I can claim 4 of my 5 alpine days were powder days!:
