Send us your snow..... We are going to have one monsterous drought if something doesn't happen here......

The black line is the amount of "Snow Water" in the mountains..... If that doesn't increase, there will be no fruit this summer... Fire Danger will be at an all time high.... The Red Line is the minimum ever recorded....

Dave, no snow in Seattle today, but I'd love to send you some of this rain.

After 2 1/2 months of below 32 degree weather, I'm afraid the rain would just run off of the frozen ground..... something slow melting would be better...

Here in Michigan we have gotten our fair share of snow since the first of the year, with more on the way this weekend. Two of my smokers are buried in snow and may not be uncovered until spring.

Hey Dave

My people have been farming is Sask since 1900 and they maintain that a healthy spring rain is 10 times as good as a lot of snow.  Snow melts in the spring and just runs off the frozen ground.  So, there's still hope  BTW, I would LOVE to send you some of my snow

Yep, you pay the shipping and loading cost, and I am sure myself and every body in this town will give you theirs.  There is about 2 to 3 feet on the ground around here.

Sorry, all the Ontario snow is already going to Washington state.  Maybe there is someone on here from Atlantic Canada, they have more than we, maybe they can help you out.

Hey Brian...... Feb and Mar are usually good months for snow.... The weather gauge I copied is the water for our entire irrigation system West of the Okanogan River... I saw where the libs tree huggers in your state refuse to cut the water to Delta Smelt so the farmers can have some water for the crops in the valley...... One more $100 billion lost veggie crop....

I'm heading to Seattle in March and will be sure to bring as much as American Airlines will let me stow.  We have barely had a week this winter without a 4+ inch snowfall.

They're talking possible snow in Seattle/Everett on Saturday. Glad I don't have a smoke planned that day. Maybe some will make it over the hills to you.

Looks like we have a chance of snow starting Saturday.... as cold as it will be, probably a light dusting.... hopefully up at the sno-tel, the snow will fall.... That's up at Conconully... we get our irrigation from the reservoir up there.....

Would if I could.  Haven't see bare ground since Thanksgiving, or there about.  More falling tonight too.

Tired of below 0*F at night, and single to teens during days.  COME ON SPRING!
