    HiTruzi

    Thanks, a work collegue from Wyoming said they needed an electric sump heater all night and running the engine at lunch time.

    Elevation and proximity to Rockies I assume.

    We get warm rain in inches by the day here all through Dec till now, last Sunday was 70F, could be summer record.

    The only place I've been in the US where it was common to see cords hanging out of the front (for an engine block heater) was Anchorage, AK. And not all cars had them.
    As much fuss as the media made about the weather this winter, I know we had more snow when I was a kid (there are photos of snow above the doors and we made forts big enough for adults).

    I agree re: media hype. Yes, our winter here has been more brutal than average, but it only ranks as number eight in terms of temps . Snowfall, well, we are awaiting another beaut tonight. It should put us over the top as record winter snowfalls go. I'm done with winter this year.
    WYSIWYG - At least that's my goal.

    Yes, I remember more snow when I was a child, and we have movies and pictures to show it really was more and not just us being smaller. It seems the snow lasted longer as well. The past decade or so, when we have a big snow, it melts in a few days. When I was a kid it persisted for weeks or months. This winter's storm was more like I remember.

    I had a friend who moved to Atalanta, Georgia, right after graduating from high school. He told us they are not used to snow down there, so everything shuts down for 1/4" of snow. We laughed until he told us it all melts by noon so they have to go to work anyway.

    I think I mentioned in an earlier post that the media make a big deal about records, and people don't think. They will mention breaking a record on a given day - lets arbitrarily say February 14. No one seems to realize that record is for that date, and not the entire month or even entire season. They lock only onto the number even when the news puts it in context.

    This year is what I call a "good" winter - like it is supposed to be. Speaking of which, another storm is coming in tonight - a mild one. Still, there are people flooding the stores to stock up on canned and dry goods because the world is about to end. Bobwysiwyg, give us an heads up, it'll hit you first

    March 17th, Saint Patrick's Day, Northwest Ireland.

    According to Met Éireann : "Cool and cloudy today with some bright spells at times. Mostly dry with patchy mist or drizzle, especially in the west and north. Later this afternoon drizzle will become more widespread but a lot of areas will stay dry. Top temperatures of 9 to 12 degrees"

    A typical St Patrick's day.

    I was born in Hollywood right off Route 66. I grew up in Norwalk. I lived in Anaheim while working at Disneyland and attending USC. I know the Santa Ana Devil Winds. I know how it feels to open your front door at 7:00am and be hit in the face with a blast of 90F+ heat and 70%+ humidity. I remember playing pickup basketball in near-100F heat. Outdoors. In March.

    Then I moved to Washington state...

    It's March. It's not near-100F. It's near-34F. My front yard is dusted in snow. If it were dry ice, I'd think I was living on Mars. Like clockwork, our first decent weather day here won't arrive until July 5th.

    Only 110 more days to go.
