You folks on the west side of the state always make me chuckle. I remember I was over there for a show one time and we had 4' of snow and lows around -20 for a few nights in a row here at home. Over there, there was a dusting of snow (maybe an inch) and it was 31*. People were stocking up and clearing store shelves, crashes all over, school was cancelled, it was like the end of the world and all we could do was laugh. Up here in Northeastern Washington (north of Spokane) we have lots of trees to fall on lines but we're just used to it all. As of right now we have about a foot and a half and bitter cold. I haven't been paying attention to temps but I do know that chicken eggs freeze solid and the shells crack after an hour of being laid in the chicken coop though.
