Winds were strong enough to knock power out in Seattle. 50-mph wind gusts were reported, as well as six inches of snow, near Silver Lake, Ore. Wind knocked down a tree onto homes in Spokane, Wa.
Puge Sound Energy @psetalk says 5,300 customers w/o power still, primarily in South King County. Most back by tonight http://mynw.me/SGK8SoKIRO Radio 97.3 FM
Power still seems to be out in a lot of South Seattle and Tukwila areas. News choppers are flying around in gusty winds. Fun day.John Pyper
Power just went out in South Seattle at least between Rainier Ave S and up Beacon Hill at Othello @SEACityLightSara
The mountains received a good amount of snow, with a foot in Alpine Meadows, Ca. and Boundary, Ind. Ten inches of snow fell during the storm in Stevens, Wa. and Bonner, Ind. Eighteen inches of snow fell in Fremont, Ind.
Heavy snow and strong wind gusts make for slow travel over Snoqualmie Pass. Please know before you go. http://pic.twitter.com/ZDGucPewI-90 Snoqualmie Pass

This is how we do it. Trucks plow in tandem to clear I-90. Traction tires advised; raining. http://pic.twitter.com/iv1R5vJmI-90 Snoqualmie Pass
