    Washington is like Oregon--wet on the coast and dry inland.Spokane is close to Idaho. What do you think Idaho weather is like?

    The coast is very wet. Last summer we had a huge amount of fires. The smoke from the fires in the middle of the state was so bad it traveled into Idaho. Made it seem like it was foggy in mid day, couldn't see the end of the block. It was the worst I recall it ever being. And these winters are getting milder and milder. I remember we used to get enough snow to hollow out 6ft tall snowberms after the plows cleared the cul de sacs where I grew up. Now there's just wet leaves everywhere.

    I remember the Idaho fires..we were also getting the smoke ..all the way over here! That was something.


    Ok, here's the hat!! [​IMG] This is a good machine, really throws that snow out there.

    Ok, I am chuckling here as I take this photo...he always clears a space for the mailman.
    That's my sweetheart. Now, if, and I say if, a snow plow comes along, which they do
    once in a while up here on the bench, then that will be buried again.

    We have no snow in Woodland, California either.

    I have lived here since 1992 and have seen snow stick two times since then. I have not seen a snow flake in years here.

    I did see snow at my Mom's place at Thanksgiving though. She is at 4500 ft.

    Completely agree. I don't like that iHatch doesn't keep track of individual days on separate batches. Love the pictures and info though.

    I really like that I can have a widget on my home screen with each batch I'm incubating with hatch a batch.

    Looks like my broody isn't up to it. I'm going to throw her eggs in the incubator and see if I have any luck with them but it looks like she's tired of sitting already :/

    Bummer! I'm trying out a first-time broody myself. So far she's sticking to it...even let me know when I got too close (ouch! my poor finger!)
