    If this makes anybody feel better you can start booking your plane tickets to Moscow as they will never have a bad blizzard again.


    Flashback: Moscow Mayor Promises a Winter Without Snow
    “Pigs still can’t fly, but this winter, the mayor of Moscow promises to keep
    it from snowing,” said this article in Time just four months ago.

  3. Mr Data says:

    0.12 of rain now and 43F after being steady at 44F 3/4ths of the day.

    I’ll try once again. (sighs)

    Does anybody know how often Andrew Johnson lives in this neck of the woods? (Silverton) http://www.smileyhut.com/confused/confused.gif

    I think he said something about summer once but I can’t really recall.

    • Aleta-West Gresham says:

      He actually lives in Tulsa Oklahoma now. He used to live in Silverton until early last summer or so.

    • Andrew Johnson says:

      Yep, Aleta is right Mr. Data. I moved last summer. I still have some family in Silverton though so now and then I may pass along some of their observations. My dad said he had a low of 25 the other morning. What has your coldest low been this month?

    Yucky! I could feel my SAD kicking back in before I even opened my eyes this morning. I could just feel the lack of light coming in the window as compared to this last week or so. 😥

    46.0 for a high today, with 0.17″ in the bucket since, well what was it, maybe 8 days ago when I last reset the gauge? It all fell today…so far.

    And just when I was convincing myself to embrace the sun’s return and give up on winter completely.
    Silly me! 🙄

      March can be pretty depressing. Seems like we always get a nice stretch in Feb and then along comes March. Raw cold, hail, windy days. Hrumph…

    • Boydo, that’s what the webbing and moss requires…..! 🙂

    • Mr Data says:

      If this makes you feel better the mayor of Moscow promistes NO MORE SNOW for the rest of the winter there.

      Who needs the news when we can have a laugh right here.

    • boydo3 N Albany says:

      Thinking about living in Baker City for a while. But then again I’d need to have a truck load of moisturizer to maintain my nice mildewy and fungus covered skin. In fact, I was asked recently, just when was I going to harvest the shrooms growing out of my sneakers! Just waiting for the price to go up.

    • …In Baker you can expect real cold, real hot, and about anything in between….the dry continental climate is so different, you perhaps should consider the dried mushroom market!
      …I lived around there for a long time, if you’d ever like any info, hit me off list!

    • …oh yea, the powder at Anthony Lakes is superb!….

    • boydo3 N Albany says:

      We tried to ski Anthony Lakes several years ago but the wire leading to the mountain was severed by a falling tree. So everybody came back down the hill and ended up at the Geyser Grand Hotel sipping red wine and munching dark chocolate. Turned out to be a fun day anyway!

    • …you should have seen the GG before the renovation…buried deep in the place was lot of little curiosity’s, like the train schedule chalkboard and other relics of the first half of the 20th century…..and it had about as ugly of an exterior paint job possible….baby**** yellow, the cupola gone, and ready to be torn down…

    • boydo3 N Albany says:

      Interesting. That place is really old feeling. I can’t believe the WIDE streets. Way out in the middle of nowhere. You can still see the wagon train road just outside of town. They must’ve had high hopes. Then the gold ran out and the railroad bi-passed the town. I’ll be you could pick up a house there pretty cheap. And no mold!

    • …more than high hopes, that piece of the world was rich from gold and timber…all thru the hills (between there and Prairie city by John Day) are remnants of the old railroad that hauled the timber to the mills, and everywhere are the remaining traces of the mining industry…..

    • boydo3 N Albany says:

      Yup, the wild, wild west! I have an ancestor who rode for the US mail by horse between The Dalles and John Day around the turn of the century (last). He ended up marrying an Indian girl and living on Burnt Ranch not far from the city of John Day. My grandmother had a collection of artifacts he passed on to her.
      My webbed feet are steeped in the mud of the Oregon Trail.

    • …way cool!..i know where that is, i was the voice of grant county for awhile….

    I will be happy to take any powder alerts you can spare! 😉

    Nice wet day today!

  7. Mr Data says:

    This rainy day what I call a good day to do more GED. 🙂 (Which is what I have done)

    44F and light rain. 0.04 hundreths of an inch.

    Did I get that right?
