Early Snowstorm!

2 comments

Snow outside of Wenatchee, easily visible on the surrounding mountains. Mission Ridge Ski Resort has fresh snow, Stevens Pass has a LOT of new snow. The passes have been affected...

 

Nothing unusual for December... But this is September!

Use caution and be prepared.

Saw one of the Webcams from Mission Ridge, looks like almost 2 feet - nice! I think Snoqualmie got a dusting last night but gone now. Last time I looked at Blewett there was a surprising amount on the roadway, normally there so much stored warmth, it melts right off. While this probably won't last, it'll help cool the ground and help the next one stick (and start driving the elk and deer down :-) )

We are at apx 2100 feet here at home, and when we got home from the cook off this aft, we see a good dusting in the hills around us here. Like 1/2 mile away and about 500 ft higher! WOW, way early. Wonder if this is a foretelling of how winter will be! Good to see you back here GUY!

  • Looks like Chinook is closing early this year. I'd be surprised if they get this open before the hard snow fall begins. https://www.wsdot.wa.gov/travel/highways-bridges/passes/chinook-and-cayuse/home
  • So, it's a "thing" now; Fire Season=Summer. We have to accept it for what it is, beyond pro-active preservation and deterrents. We've also experienced some pretty hairy thunder/lightning/flood systems recently... and snow is coming up on us. So, that brings up a question for all: Do you have a "What If" or evacuation plan while out in the woods? Let's here your ideas and input. Also, POST/share your stories/pics/videos of your craziest overlanding storms. Dan
