I love WA. We were up there last Christmas for a week and spent time in Birch Bay, Bellingham, Olympic National Park, Mt. Baker and a couple of trips to Vancouver.

Sounds like the wind really took hold up there!

Been there. I went without power for 7 days after a nasty New Years Eve ice storm.
I heard about the person that they found dead from carbon monoxide poisoning, sitting right next to the gas powered generator inside his house! There's a Darwin Award winner!
