However the main force of the Thursday event is currently forecast to hit northern Washington and mostly miss us.  There will be a little more rain on Friday before it is supposed to dry out and get around freezing again on the weekend.

Speaking of snow… how about this for a couple days of snowfall!  From somewhere in the Eastern US where they received historic amounts of snowfall…. the time-lapse below is titled, 33 hours, 5 foot drift.

Here are the historic totals from the storm out East.

And here is an interesting stat from the Arctic Circle in Norway.  The world is working is strange ways these days.
