Western Monarchs down to 30K. 

Anecdotally, this was the first year since growing milkweed, we never saw any at our house.

Forecast 1-3" snow.

8" and counting later...

Another good 6" + this morning for a forecasted 1/2". 

I'm not sure if it falls under the city or the state, but someone's decided the main highway by our house doesn't need plowing.  We were out in it yesterday, and I had to again this morning, and neither time was it plowed.

Does that mean the drought in your region is over? ;)
Once the melt sets in that is.

PS: appearantly the seattlepi.com site is blocked in my region. Maybe because of the EU's data gathering legislation.

Actually, no.  We're still below average snowpack for the year.  Long range has best outlook is hitting average, but really, another such storm and we'd tip above average for the date, but we really won't know till spring for the drought situation.  As I understand, though it would take 3 years of above average water to get the ground water back to average.

Well, I hope you get more snow for the water, but not as much so for having to shovel it...

The rest of the neighbor's kids just showed up (Talia and that family is always together and at one of our houses).  This was the younger pair, knocking alone at the door.  They still are not entirely sure of me.  I mean, they still are afraid, but know enough to laugh it up after.

You know damn well I'm playing that up every time I answer the door.

Hey BU. 

You might be interested I'm revisiting Trevor this year.  Instead of sculpting an entire skeleton from scratch underneath this time, however, I just used Fred as a mold and put plaster wrap over him for a large portion.  Will be buying some apoxie clay soon and let you know what I think of it.

Supposedly the worst storm in 10 years has just begun.  30+ inches expected in the mountains, and more rain than snow down here at work, and 8-10" snow expected at my house.  If that pans out, we might hit average snowfall for the year.

That one hit too far south, we only got rain down low and not enough snow in the mountain.

Next 'big storm' just started, we'll see.  I'm getting tired of these doom and gloom predictions that never pan out.

Todays storm was pathetic compared to predictions.  :(

* Random quote

The ancient Chinese had a name for it: Feng Shui. We call it energy flow. It is the same thing, the same thought: energy is everywhere, but only a fraction of it is tapped by humans for their purposes. Now the Progenitors have taught us that we can tap not only our own latent abilities, but the latent abilities of the Universe itself.
