I'm enjoying it also. The weather predictors say that we are still under the influence of el nino, but historically after el nino we have a more harsh January and February. https://www.lansingstatejournal.com...ervice-snow-lansing-michigan/2462036002/
I'm hoping the Farmer's Almanac is more accurate, predicting a mild winter. Watching Intellicast, it sure seems that most of the entire eastern U.S. has been clobbered with lots of rain the past months.
~67 and sunny here, got to 70's. But the bigger deal, TWO STRAIGHT DAYS without rain. Since end of July, never seen so much rain. The ground is completely saturated. I believe if it didn't rain for 6 weeks, we'd still have a large surplus.
Went to ski today and it was snowing when I got up to get in line (first chair!) and still snowing when I left our ski place on my way to get some things done at work.
It got up to about 30 on the mountain, but is now sharply colder and windier here at home...it was about 35 and fairly calm when I stopped in the office and mid 20s and howling wind when I left.
Depresses the crud out of me when it rains in the winter around here...
Typical winter so far in Washington state. Good snow in the mountains and rain in the lowlands. Just had our third or fourth storm blow through last night with 60+ mph winds. A bit of cleanup today but we kept power.
