maybe thats why Portland seems to be doing worse than Seattle right now even though Seattle got hit harder. It didn’t really snow here and what did fall didn’t stay..

snow insulation?

The 3-4 inches of snow probably helped insulate the fungus during the very cold temperatures that followed. But yes, the fungus seems to be continuing to fruit. I was not expecting to find any, and it was a nice surprise.

~ -10 Celsius

For as long as records have been kept, Seattle has never dropped below 0 Fahrenheit.
