Good Tuesday Morning.   Yes..another storm.  Monday's weather here in the great Pacific Northwest left much to be desired.  I think there might have been 15 minutes during the whole day when it wasn't pouring rain along with strong winds.   I came home after work to feed Gabi, turn the porch light on, close the blinds etc. before I drove back to the Back Pain Seminar at 6pm.  It was lightly sprinkling when I left home but by the time I drove the approximately 8 miles to the seminar site...it was pouring rain and the wind was blowing it sideways.  This particular facility has a huge parking lot to walk thru, in order to get to the entrance and when I was home I'd freshened my makeup, re-combed my hair, etc.  I got out of the car and my hair immediately was blown in every direction but I did grab my umbrella and the stuff I needed for the seminar and trekked across the parking lot into the building.  I keep a few things in a container in the back seat of my car, so grabbed a hair brush and took it in with me. Unfortunately, only about half the people that had registered showed up (no doubt because of the weather) and I felt a little sorry for the physician who gave up his evening at home with his family to come out and speak to such a small group. But, everyone there was very attentive and had numerous questions after he was through. So I think it was a success. 

Well, I'm off to work again this morning....it rained and blew all night. And according to the email I got from Seattle's KOMO TV this morning, it's not going to change anytime soon.    Have a good Tuesday........Linda


"Dear Linda,
Our latest wind storm is moving out and we get a tiny break from the wild winds.

This morning is still very breezy with temperatures in the 40s and scattered showers.
Today we will see showers and sun breaks from time to time and highs near 50. A Breezy South wind @ 10 to 25 mph.

Wednesday another rainy and windy storm moves in and a Wind Advisory has been posted for the Coast and Northwest Interior for the strongest gust to 50 mph. Around Seattle expect a SW wind @ 20 to 30 mph and highs near 50.

The forecasting models are warning of a potentially very strong wind event with the third storm coming in late Thursday and into Friday. It depends on the track of the low. Some computer models take the low to our South which would not be as bad as expected. This will bear watching, and of course, we'll be doing just that. But expect rain and wind again, with highs in the 40s and lower 50s.

Once that storm passes, we go into a very cool and showery pattern for the weekend. Snow levels will be dropping down fairly low -- around 500 feet-ish, but not too much moisture to work with, so might see a few rain/snow showers but nothing anywhere close to the snow event of late November.

Friday into early Saturday would be the day some area could see a mix at lower levels. Something else we will be watching . Highs will only be in the upper 30s/low 40s both weekend days, with lows near freezing.

Your weather sounds dreadful ~ we have had plenty of rain and wind here as well ~ "roll on Spring" and the light nights  ~  Glad the seminar went well even if everyone didn't turn up ~ those who did sounded very interested in it and had plenty of questions ~ that must have pleased the physician ~ Hope you are having a good week ~ Ally

There were a couple times during the night I could hear the wind and rain, just briefly and I'd drift right back to sleep.  It looks pretty mellow at this moment.  I have to go to Puyallup this afternoon, sure hope it stays mellow until we are all in the comforts of our warm homes.

Yucky weather and people actually live there LOL!!!  I'm sure it's beautiful other times of the year.  Gotta take the good with some bad.

Last night was very nasty, but today was better, thank goodness.  Think of all those people rushing around shopping for the holidays in all that awful rain.  But they still come.  joni
