    In past few days have gotten a minimum of 16" here.

    As below another 6-9" starting tomorrow night thru tuesday night. Normally this time of year we have RAIN. Glad the Global warming has kicked in high gear! LOL

    Pics tomorrow. A lot of snow for just a few days worth. The first 3-4" melted but looks like its here to stay now. Last week we had a couple nights 8-14 below zero then the snow started. Not a lot at a time at first but just steady. Then the big dump came friday night and into saturday. Wet/Heavy stuff.

    Some decent banks already. Wet/Heavy

    More snow hit

    Plowing all day and no pics but will try tomorrow.

    We are nearing 30" since a day or so before Thanksgiving.

    So far today around 8+".

    All time monthly snowfall record. Not sure what the "Official" Number is but we have gotten near the 30" for the month! And its still coming down!

    Had some pretty tough plows today.

    The top five snowiest novembers for Spokane are as follows...

    2 24.7" 1955
    3 24.2" 1897

    5 23.6" 1973

    **total as of 10 PM November 30th. More snow accumulation is
    possible by midnight... so this total is not official yet.



    Its going to be a BIG year...

    Last year our TOTAL SEASON snowfall was only 13"

    Another storm

    Where are you at?

    An hour ago I looked at weather and no snow predicted. About 15 minutes after that it started to snow VERY VERY HARD! For sure another plowing event but by checking radar should be over in another hour or two.

    I kind of like that

    Weatherman says no snow we get dumped on...

    Weatherman says lots of snow we get little...

    Its raining just 3 miles south of us.

    Western WA....40 minutes north of Seattle. Yeah they said that about our little snow event last week...thought it would mainly snow down south. Well we got it hard (for this side) enough to cause major problems.

    Bigrd1,

    If you're wanting to move to the Redmond area of WA State you will barely use a plow. Western WA is not known for its snow unless you live up in Whatcom County which is the last county bordering Canada. However, if Western WA does get snow it's usually more of an even east of I405 which would be the Redmond area (more east Redmond rather than downtown Redmond). Case580M lives on the complete opposite end of me (northeast region of WA) near the Okanagon Mountains I believe...somewhere around there. MUCH MORE SNOW there.

    Just for example; our last "snow even" was the week of Thanksgiving and we got around 4" greater Seattle area but the way the storm moved in and its make up allowed for 8" plus south of Seattle and west on the Olympic Peninsula area. We have yet to have more snow. January and February may produce more snow for us but it's not guaranteed.

    Other than that Western WA is a great place to live; just sometimes we get cheated on true seasons. I live about 45 minutes north of Redmond.
