Statewide emergency declared by Governor Gregoire
SPOKANE COUNTY, Wash. - On Christmas Eve, Gov. Chris Gregoire proclaimed a state of emergency in Washington due to the state's ongoing series of winter weather and storms.
Gregoire notes snowfall has reached record or near-record level in 30 of Washington's 39 counties.
Prior to the Governor's declaration the Board of County Commissioners (BOCC) convened an emergency meeting Wednesday to discuss current conditions and the forecast for two major winter storm systems that could bring another 18 inches of fresh snow to the region.

British Columbia is getting pounded to. My dad was telling me they got nearly 2 feet of snow in just a couple of days. And how I understand it up there, thats almost unheard of.

May the FORCE be with you!

Sunny and near 80 degrees here in Northeast Florida. My ex moved to Washington state last year. I wonder if she regrets that move?“I have learned now that while those who speak about one's miseries usually hurt, those who keep silence hurt more.”
God judged it better to bring good out of evil than to suffer no evil to exist.

It's in the 70's in south Lousiana. Beach weather.

At least it was a good fire drill for the possible spring storms. Any time it gets to almost 70 in this area in the winter, we usually have to pay for it with these storms.
At least it was my incentive to workout at the circuit we've set up in the basement. We have a lot of gym equipment in the basement. The place we worked out went out of business, so we'll save money and just workout here.
