2018/19 Winter Banter and General Discussion - We winter of YORE

How much snow for the Big Island peaks? 
(Many years ago when in 2nd grade, our son got in trouble by saying that it snowed in Hawai'i.  Teacher wouldn't believe it even when shown pictures sent by my brother in law, who lives on O'ahu's north shore.)

Snow fell as low as 6200 feet on Maui last night.  This might be a new record for snow at such a low elevation..  I belong to a couple FB groups out there.  In the video I saw it looked more like  rime ice covering trees but anything to them that is white is snow and it could have been snow, I just couldn't tell.  Mauna Kea's temp was 12F.  According to the FB group.  No observer stays up there I don't believe during big winter storms, its all automated.   Snow does fall from time to time on Mauna Loa and Mauna Kea on the Big Island. (Elevations around 13,600)  It is very rare on Maui. (Elevation 10,000) Maybe we will get some pictures once daylight returns today.

That looks really low for 20-21° N.  When we visited family on Oahu in mid-March 2016, the car thermometer dropped from 72 in Honolulu to 60 at just under 1,000' (which decrease seemed impressive) then back to 68-70 at Haleiwa where my wife's brother and family live.  This was at about 8 PM with winds from the north - maybe that led to the strong apparent lapse rate.

i was in Hawaii in November two years ago....drove up to the observatory on Mauna Loa at night and were the only ones up there...25 degrees with big wind. I can't imagine their winter storms have much pack build up though.

Crazy how cold its been at Great Falls. I can't even imagine what heating costs are with these temps.

Pattern out west has been incredible. This is pretty amazing for the sierras. They've had periods of obscene snow before but usually you don't get the snow levels so low on a consistent basis for each storm like recently. They keep getting hammered down to like 2,000-3,000 feet.

Playing catch up with the Wasatch.  Snowbird reporting 384" to date

It definitely snowed, but the Mauna Loa ob is still reported as "M" as far as I can see.

So that means they are ahead of BOS for the season too right?

Looks like I'm being transferred to FL this summer. So this may be my last New England winter for a few years. Sucks to go out this way

At least you were here for an epic time for snow. After all the years of KU’s I imagine we could be entering a bit of a dry spell for while.

Moving to FLL. I was definitely lucky enough to be here from 06" - 19", and that includes some epic years, along with our all time ever. 06-07 was funny cause I had no real comparison, so it didn't seem so bad. I remember being 19 and waking up at 3am to watch the flakes, and having no idea that this disease was common lol. But it is a little sad to leave on this note, with 5" to the season on 2/13

Man the Sierra keep getting lit up. 

Squaw Valley and Alpine Meadows got another 36" overnight with 46" in 24 hours.

They were closed today due to extreme avalanche danger and all highways into Tahoe were closed by Highway Patrol.

Is it me or has this winter been horrendous for sickness? I’ve been out of work since Monday with what was diagnosed as the stomach flu, and have shown virtually no improvement since.

Was planning on going back today but fever is still pushing 103 and can’t keep anything down.

Brutal

103, is getting right there where you need to consult with your doctor. Id say try advil or tylenol but if you cant keep anything down then that wouldnt work. You also have to be careful with dehydration. You may want to call yiuour doctor and see what they say.

The hot then cold flip-flopping weather isn't good for your immune system, I've been sick half the winter

Yeah... my doctor was booked solid so I went back to an urgent care facility. They basically told me same thing they told me on Monday. Fever has since subsided to near normal levels and I’ve been feeling a little better, so cautiously optimistic.

Cant really afford to miss more work, already missed 3 days this week, so hopefully good enough to go tomorrow

Been trying to get over something for the last 3 days (not sure if it is allergies/sinus/cold/flu/bug/what). Just adds to an already awesome winter

I’ve hit 103-104+ quite a few times, but I avoid the doctor like the plague. I always enjoy when the fever breaks and I wake up drenched in sweat. Since I quit dairy I never get sinus infections anymore and it’s cut my frequency of getting sick way down. I used to get the flu once per year, but it’s been a few years now.

I napped this afternoon and woke up soaked, so I’m hoping that was the fever breaking. 

Doctor was neccesary for me, since I need the notes and proof for work.

Who is the fuking fascist you work for? I hate that shit, I've only taken like 2 sick days in 5 years but if I was ever questioned about that shit I would walk with no notice and maybe take a swing at my boss on the way out the door.

Many places need a doctors note to ensure the employee is ok to come back to work without infecting everyone.

This is part of it I think, and a note is only required after 3 consecutive days of absence. Maybe to ensure people aren’t taking a mini vacation?

Either way... got a decent nights sleep last night and temp read 98.7 this morning, so hopefully I’ve turned the corner for good here.

Hot tardies have broken every fever I have ever had except for Lyme Disease,  105 in the hospital with an IV drip, ended up with an IV port for treatments for 90 days. 2 kids died from Borreilous while I was in South County Hospital RI in 1989 before Drs had a real clue.
