    Geeeez Alex, you live in the mountains. What do you expect. If you didn't get snow, then I would have to drink beer all summer because there would be no water down here. Now we wouldn't want that, would we? Hmmmm, well maybe....

    Quit trying to get on my good side. It has never been in the 80's here until about July. And then it's that temp until September. Well maybe late June. And the grass around my little corner of Montana, doesn't green up until June.

    Well, it's snowing hard again, and as I type, we've got about 3.5 inches here in Leavenworth. It's slacking off now, just when two of my buddies are heading over to Red's to do some pheasant hunting. Guess I'll tie some flies!

    We did get two new pairs of those Altai Hok "skishoes" this Winter, and I might take them out for a run since there's no prepared tracks available.

    Gotta love how the weather wienies from NOAA are telling me the snowpack is below normal. I realize they do snow surveys, but clearly, they haven't ventured up to Stevens Pass this Winter. "Below normal" my ass!

    Had another late March tripped planned to the OP. Scheduled to arrive on Tuesday morning in Seattle and fish through Friday. Cancelled flight and trip at last minute due to heavy rain and winds forcast for today/tomorrow. Just my luck, however, right call this time... river levels are taking off!

    Looks like a good call to me. Wind is picking up here and I am near the Sound, a long way from the Coast.

    Coast ususally gets much more rain and wind than I do.

    ok maybe not the 80s maybe 78° maximum, I definately got sunburned to hell. And caught some nice browns. I'm pretty sure I couldn't live in Montana June-September, its just to damned hot (and the fishing here is really good). The rest of the winter though mmmmmm.... Sunshine and rainbows (and browns!)

    No, they ran out of snow about two weeks ago and shut it down. Stevens Nordic is roaring along, though!
