    Much of Cowlitz county had the power knocked out around 2:00 - didn't come back up till just before midnight in my area but PUD stated that it could take a few days to get everyone back on line.

    Way up here in the north of WA near the Canadian border we had Snowmegeddon yesterday. 8 inches of blowing snow with temps in the 20's. No trees to blow down but the sage took a beating. Quieted down around midnight. Thank goodness for 4 wheel drives and winter survival gear. Speaking of which I need to go get ready for work in a few. Our closest neighbors did not even make it home last night. Will check on them in a few. Stay warm and safe out there.
