Quoting ILLINILASS:
I love your comment about "wise enough to use metric"…. the US is so silly not to catch up with the rest of the world. If we would make the change we would learn it. Now if I don't use it I loose it!!!

Some 30 years ago we began the slow move to metric, but it was abandoned for some very dumb reasons. I think it's long past time to revive the idea -- and it's costing the economy a lot of money each year.

Is that all you got? One foot? haha I hope someone has a strong back to shovel that out -- and I hope it's light weight snow -- not the heavy stuff!

Nice shot!

It was light enough to sweep with a broom for the first few days, but it was starting to get wetter and heavier by the time I finally got out my shovel. Procrastination is never rewarded!

Quoting papajuan:
We have more snow than that left over from November and not one centimeter of it has melted.
Even after sublimation we have over 50CM left on the ground.
If we converted to metric we couldn't use our standard length unit of football fields (US Rugby) or stories for height.

Looks like you're high up in the Sierras, which have received a lot of snow in the last week or so. I hope it continues so you'll get some relief from the terrible drought down there.

Wow! I grew up in Corvallis and you don't see that very often! We have that much snow here in Missoula, but that's more typical.

All that snow is now long gone here in the valley, thanks to warming and a week of heavy rains that have caused a lot of minor flooding.

That's a heck of a snowfall for the valley. I hope it's melting, because I know they don't plow the side streets there.

Well no wonder I'm so dumb. OinkOink

Yes, that was a snarky comment on my part, but the refusal to go metric makes no sense to me. Even the Brits have made big steps in that direction.

About Rutabagas

Forest Grove, Oregon, is located about 22 miles west of Portland. Situated at the base of the Coast Range in the Tualatin Valley, the town receives about 45 inches of precipitation each year, mostly falling as rain between October 1st and June 1st. Summers are typically dry, with low humidity. The climate is moderated by the Pacific Ocean, with frequent cloudiness and temperatures that rarely go below 14 F/ -10 C or above 86 F/ 30 C. Laurel, a nearby location in the Coast Range, received a state record 204"/5,182 mm of precipitation in one year (1996) and a record 49.59"/1,260 mm. in a single month (11/2006). You've got to appreciate rain and clouds if you're living in the Pacific Northwest. When my frequent urge to travel has to be satisfied at home, I visit WeatherUnderground. Thanks to all who submit photos from around the world--and I always appreciate messages! Create your own visitor map! Louisiana Jones Act Counter
