We live in the Pacific Northwest! No shortage of cold weather!
In the past 60 days, we have only had 23 days that hit 60 degrees! We're still using the heat in our house!
Two nights ago, we had to bring out our snow plows on Snoqualmie Pass! Two feet of overnight snow!
This weekend, our Mt Rainier got socked with 70 mph winds/blizzard with 5 feet of snow! It killed a day hiker, and his wife and buddy were hospitalized with frostbite and hypothermia.
They were reportedly experienced hiker/climbers. They had summited Mt. Rainer previously. The mountain makes its own weather. They underestimated the mountain. Probably poorly outfitted. Mt Rainier headquarters had reported that snow was expected.
