Talking about the weather. This image from the Seattle PI will probably be the single-most vivid memory of this event I've got, since Woodinville is my stomping grounds. I recognize that sign.
But this other image, of the tressel, is also pretty intense. As I think I've actually been on that particular tressel in the Spirit of Washington Dinner Train.
There are some more interesting photos of the weather and local news, taken by regular folk instead of reporters. I live just to the west of Woodinville, in Bothell.
And, oh, if you want to get to Portland from Seattle (or vice versa), you have to take a detour, since I-5 through Chehalis is shut down due to massive flooding. Just a little detour. Only 440 miles. Of course, for a short time yesterday, Snoqualmie Pass was also closed, which meant that your extra four hour drive turned into an extra eight hours.
