The cell that came through Lacey at 16:30 had enough rain in it that closest house was blurry, and could not see the second house. Muddy green appearance. Lightning on 5 and 10 second cycle. Thunder was continuous. No way to connect flash with one sound. A home two houses the other way took hits from a couple doug firs. Entire truss system flattened. We went to the basement for a dozen minutes. We had not retreated like that before.

Glad I didn't like wind report and stayed home.

Surprised when power came on a 04:30. I was guessing noon.

My girlfriend in Lacey called me yesterday evening while we were having dinner in Leavenworth (weather ok there at the time) to tell me that she saw a tornado pick up her greenhouse in the air and smash it to pieces, just like a scene out of Wizard of Oz. eek.gif

Here's what our buddy, Cliff Mass, has to say about last night.
Extraordinary Lightning Strikes over the Northwest

I sure can't ever remember so much thunder and lightning for such an extended period.

Exquisite day boating down the Mower Sauk.  (Whirlpool Rapid to Sauk Prairie Bridge)  I went early 'cuz the later forecasts were a little weird.

Any idea of what the snow levels are up around the upper Skagit valley area--say near Newhalem?  I was thinking about a hike this Saturday up to 6000' or so.  I am wondering if I need microspikes, etc.  Thanks,  ~z

haha!  wink.gif   Thanks.  Just that Schroder's photo of Stevens looked a little daunting so soon in the season.  Not sure that elevation being shown.  ~z

Here you can see all the Stevens Pass cams: https://www.stevenspass.com/site/mountain/cams . The highest one that Schroder earlier posted has melted a bit, but there is still snow.

On WHC there was a photo posted from Washington Pass that showed only a dusting on the surrounding peaks: https://www.facebook.com/groups/washingtonhikersandclimbers/permalink/2195192510707084/  and also https://www.facebook.com/buzzandgus/posts/10103396757078445

Wow. mbravenboer.  Thanks!  I will check these reports and sources out.  'Really appreciate it.  ~z

Edit:  Whoa...  Vesper Lake (~5000+) has a few inches and Summerland (~5940') per MRNP: As of Tuesday afternoon there was about 7 inches of new snow at Summerland and about 1+ feet of snow up at Panhandle Gap.   

Could be slippery up there.  Hmmm.  Probably time for gaiters and microspikes above 5000'.  Definitely layers, hat and gloves.  Summer one week and early winter the next.   rolleyes.gif

Anybody have a picture or report from the Mt Baker/542 area?  Can't seem to find any and headed up there this weekend.  Thanks.
