(via Seattle PI):
"The National Weather Service said a fierce snowstorm combined with high winds and possible freezing rain could cause widespread power outages, and dump as much as a half-foot of snow in the Seattle area, starting as early as Saturday afternoon. A rare blizzard warning was also issued for the Cascades and northern areas of the Olympic Peninsula."But it's not all bad news...
"On the brighter side -- forecasters noted that the cold snap should end by Christmas with temperatures on Christmas Day projected into the 40s."How perfectly balmy.
(Think I'll Walk Instead) UPDATE:
This could have been a lot worse. I'm glad it wasn't.
