      WELCOME TO THE CASCADECLIMBERS.COM FORUMS   02/03/18

      We have upgraded to new forum software as of late last year, and it makes everything here so much better!  It is now much easier to do pretty much anything, including write Trip Reports, sell gear, schedule climbing related events, and more. There is a new reputation system that allows for positive contributors to be recognized,  it is possible to tag content with identifiers, drag and drop in images, and it is much easier to embed multimedia content from Youtube, Vimeo, and more.  In all, the site is much more user friendly, bug free, and feature rich!   Whether you're a new user or a grizzled cascadeclimbers.com veteran, we think you'll love the new forums. Enjoy!

Counting the days....

Recommended Posts

In 1998-99, we had 93 days of rain .. not in a row. If you can grasp that, semantics should play no role in your interpretation of the events. The maximum number of consecutive days it has ever rained in Seattle is 33 (since records have been kept). Our current streak is at 22 days. It has never rained in Seattle for 93 consecutive days (meaning measurable [>.001 inch]precipitation on each day for 93 consecutive days).

Exactly

 

And 1-2 feet of snow is expected in the Mtns real soon here.

I miss last winter cry.gifyellaf.gif

yep...last winter was pretty much the shit!! With the added bonus of listening to all the skiing faeries whining... cry.gif

 

And a nonexistent winter snowpack is great for the environment too. smile.gif

 

I hear Ford 150s are worse tongue.gif

 

I hear living in Portland is even worse than that since you have to drive half way up or down the coast to get to any REAL mountains.

Well, if the Sierras or Coast Range are what you consider real mountains....

Quick! Where's Dru? Someone is needed to explain the difference between the Coast Range and the Coast Mountains!

Why don't you stick to law and leave hydrology and climatology to people who know something about it? cool.gif

Indeed! Note the effortless command of rainfall duration concepts displayed in the following: "...it rained 24/7 straight for 93 days..." Geek_em8.gif

Do you mean intensity?

Umm...no. "Intensity" would presumably invovle inches or mm.

 

By the way, in Bham, at 23 days straight yesterday we broke our record. And no end in sight, baby! pitty.gif

Do you mean the rain? Or do you mean the "discussion" about 93 days vs. 33 days vs. days of rain vs. days with rain vs. ..

When you grow up on the west coast of Vancouver Island you don't even notice rain after a while you just do what you need to do. Rain=Life. It's a chance to wear that fancy gortex downtown or what ever. Just get out there and drink in mother nature!! Feel yourself engulfed in her wonderous bounty, her embrionic fluid that gives us ever living thing.....fuck this is good pot fruit.gif

We got an hour of sunshine here on the Eastside. I think the wailing and gnashing of teeth was effective. laugh.giffruit.gif
