Default Strange Weather in Oregon

It is hard to believe it is March. Last night up and down the Oregon coast they got snow and according to my neice they had over 6" in Linclon City where she lives. According to a news item online the last time snow in March on the beach was 1966. One A.M. this morning I get up and it is snowing here in the valley on the valley floor. Then it starts to rain but it doesn't melt the snow off. Right now i'm looking into the back yard and we have a snow/rain mix happening. Strange weather this year.

Had to go over to WalMart to buy a new alarm clock and it was practically white out conditions over on the hwy. Brrrrrr! Nothing is sticking though because it is really a wet snow and the temp is just warm enough to keep it from freezing. If it gets cold tonight it is going to be a real nightmare in the morning.

Just be thankful we are getting our snowpack closer to normal levels. We need the water for the aquafier for those who have wells instead of citified water.......lol

Chasing Hawk, your so right. Not only the water but we need to keep the fire danger down up in the forest. Besides the snow seems to assure a great huckelberry picking season.

Well we have strange weather here in the Chicago area . It hit 70 degree here today and they say tommorow maybe close to 80 degrees. Just very strange to have all my windows open in the middle of March.

It is strange weather here in Mi. It was almost 70 today. We have had very little snow. Had a lot of straight wind damage in my town and a hot, hot summer. This summer should be interesting to see just what we get weather wise.

Weather has always been strange. My husband has been going thru some letters that are date 1933 and one stated that our city had snow on May1 in that year.
