NEW!  Hood River's historic daily weather averages and records  spreadsheet

Many thanks to Julia N. who several years ago converted the MCAREC database into spreadsheet form for me, which I have been updating ever since.  Thanks also to Temira, who recently convinced  me to share it online (and who also set it up in Google Docs).


Everybody Talks About the Weather...

So, here's yet another place to talk about it.  Before posting, please read the more detailed chat room guidelines here.   Please be polite, civil,  and respectful of each other.   Politics and anything else that turns into a heated argument or violates the chat room guidelines are not allowed, and comments that push that too far might be deleted (or you might be banned) at our discretion.   You've been warned.

In the chat window below, the most recent comment is at the bottom; scroll up to see previous comments.   To open a stand-alone chat window, click here.   In fact, it would be a good idea to bookmark that just in case this weather site goes down, and you want to chat about what the heck is happening, and why, and how long.

  Opinions expressed in the chat room are those of the people posting them, and not necessarily those of the management of this weather site, if it had any management.

This whole weather site auto-reloads every 15 minutes, wiping out whatever you are typing into chat room comments at that moment.   So, to be on the safe side, reload the site before posting, by hitting "CTRL-R", or the F5 key, or however you prefer to reload web pages.  Or, to avoid all that, just use the stand alone chat room.
