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.
