On a weekend trip to Oregon's high desert this past weekend, the going got tough through Everett Washington and Mt. Hood Oregon...
"spring snowstorm brought isolated lightning and more than 10 inches of snow to parts of Snohomish County by early Saturday, covering blossoming trees, [and] creating slushy driving conditions. The National Weather Service in Seattle reported 10 ¼ inches of snow fell in Clearview, southwest of Monroe, from Friday afternoon to Saturday morning. A meteorologist in Mill Creek reported 7.6 inches of snow and a few weather spotters in south Everett saw 7.7 inches fall." - see story here
Earth Day celebrations at Mt. Hood Medows on April 20, 2008 were also effected by this storm system as anyone trying to get OFF the mountain that afternoon were held up for hours as a spectacular Motorhome and small vehicle crash was cleared from both lanes of the highway.
