    OT: Stevens pass closed indefinately

    Just in case anyone is trying to get back and forth to visit/enjoy the snow, there's been serious trouble in the area between Stevens pass and Leavenworth. More info:
    Highway 2 will remain closed indefinitely | The Wenatchee World

    This will mean that there will be more traffic on Snoqualmie pass and Blewett pass, the latter of which can be really dodgy even under normal circumstances.

    At last count 2 or 3 thousand customers were without power. I have a mushing buddy that runs the YMCA camp at Lake Wenatchee who's been out of power since last Monday, and they have no idea when it will come back on because the trees just keep falling on everything... even old growth is coming down. Every time they leave the place to get hot food/shower/laundry they have to chainsaw their way back in to their home. Below is a youtube vid of what power crews are facing.

    The pass is open again, as of an hour or two ago.

    Yup, saw that earlier but wasn't able to post. Hopefully they're going to get a break for Christmas
