    Winter isn't over yet (Washington Cascades)

    Been lots of crying about the weather in the Washington forum.

    ...A FRONTAL SYSTEM WILL BRING SIGNIFICANT SNOWFALL TO THE HIGHER
    ELEVATIONS OF THE CASCADES AND OLYMPICS TONIGHT AND FRIDAY..

    A FRONTAL SYSTEM WILL PRODUCE SIGNIFICANT PRECIPITATION IN THE
    MOUNTAINS TONIGHT AND FRIDAY...WITH ONE TO TWO FEET OF SNOW IN THE

    ROAD TO HURRICANE RIDGE...WILL LIKELY ENCOUNTER SNOW...POOR
    VISIBILITY...AND SOME WIND. HOWEVER ACCUMULATIONS ON THE ROADS

    Crazy, should be mellow fire season.
    There's a big difference between ripping and skidding. Those who skid don't know how to ride.

    I Hear 'ya. I live in Bend (the dry, desert side of Oregon). We're getting the same cool, wet crap too.

    Gets a little stale, no?

    I live in Port Angeles. After this "winter that will never end", I'm about ready to move to Arizona!

    We're heading your way the 14th from Phoenix. Weather here has been great this spring. We usually head up in July, but had to come earlier this year.
    If you're lucky enough to be in the mountains,
    you're lucky enough.
